Requested Articles

In General:

1. General information including text,  maps, and art. Many types of Tolkien enthusiasts use the Tolkien Encyclopedia, including students, teachers, fans of Tolkien's books, fans of movies made from Tolkien's books, movie-makers, role-players, dungeon masters, fan fiction writers, artists, and you.
2. Specific articles listed below. Names in bold are especially urgent.
3. It's wonderful to have more than one article on a subject or character. No two are alike if they have much content at all. Different styles are clearer to different people.
4. We have various names mentioned without a link all over the Encyc that need articles, not all listed here. They are there partly as a service and partly as reminders to us writers. Look under your favorite Subjects such as Elves.
5. Project: Lines of kings: articles, especially on some of the human kings, needed to better make history unfold as the reader goes from link of king to successor for many generations.
6. Project for the Hobbit movie: any article helpful to making the upcoming movie: character descriptions physical including changing clothing, and mental; setting descriptions for where they traveled or stayed, overviews of main events. The main events can be linked into our timeline. Settings they travel through. Any detail inside these. The movies are now out, but these articles would still be helpful for all the usual reasons: scholars, writers, artists.
7. All articles must be referenced from Tolkien's books to cut down mistakes. Give at least the book, chapter name or number helps a lot. Page numbers need to include the book's version as in a Bibliography style, since so many versions are out.
