Welcome to Kelos' Maps of Arda website. Simple, not much here, except a file to download with maps to help you in your travels around Arda.
If you arrived here without knowing about the Two Towers MUD, you can click HERE for their website.
I hope you find the map useful.
The Map is made in Microsoft Excel, which may prove unusable by some of you. If that's the case, I apologize, especially to those Open Source people out there. I can only hope your other spreadsheet program lets you open Excel documents.
I owe a lot to the maps by Redjack and Ladykris who have this site: http://randkl.com/baradaeglos/ardamap.html. They gave me a good base for where things were, and how they looked, plus some of their own "places of interest" on the grid. Thank you!
Some benefits of the Map:
Finally, I welcome suggestions or additions to the map. I am by no means an expert at this game, I just love the Lord of the Rings, and really enjoy playing T2T. Making this map has been fun for me. However, I make mistakes and miss things, please Mudmail me with ideas, suggestions, corrections or additions here: Kelos@Valacirca

I have plans for ER Maps, and have a partial done, but my FR character keeps me from doing much in that area. However, Jet mapped some ER towns and they are in the map as of now.

Also begain work on Near Harad, and also added some Legends to the city map pages for reference. Beginning a "remapping" of Minas Tirith, for things I didn't get in the first sweep. Mapped the First Level Defending Wall, and a few other places up to level 3.

Mapped more of Moria, mapped around the outside of Mordor, the gate, etc. Also, just recently, mapped Kadar and the Outpost forHarondor and Near Harad. They are posted on the Large Map for easy reference. Also am planning on putting together a separate map with just regions on it.
