Allright everyone this is the best I've got time for. I've tried to address as many concerns/suggestions as possible and at this point have done all I'm going to until the map is battle tested. If further revising is need I will do so, but feel the final product is quite strong. Following is version 2.1 for immediate release:

I/we will look forward to your input once we've played some games on it.

Been a while since I've done anything with LOTR, but something looks off with this map.

Sorry all, I'm done editing the map. If it needs to be changed around later I may do so, but nothing is going to change until it's played on for a while.

Not to be too technical or anything but it is actually Middle-Earth not Middle Earth...but it doesn't matter that much.

I've asked the cartographers to fix a few minor things:
  • The XML on the small map (I.E. the army values) over lap the designated housing circles and are not centralized in those circles.
  • And along the same lines with the small version, the large version's army coordinates need to be adjusted and centralized before live play.

Both of these shouldn't take too long to do. It's been a long road for this map, and everyone is looking forward to playing on it! So lets get those fixes up.

The Final Forge period has concluded for the Middle-Earth Map. All objections have had their time. The Foundry and I hereby brand this map with the Foundry Brand. Let it be known that this map is now ready for live play (barring any Lack vetoes).

It's been a long road, but the end is in sight!

Conquer Club, enjoy!

Unfortunately that is a copy of the real and copyrighted Lord of the Rings Risk. This map, as created by Tic and MrCon, is an 'original' work inspired by the the 'real' version. And since this map is set to be put up for live play soon, the image above can do little to help.
