Lord Over the Web
We asked Erica Challis aka Tehanu of the onering.net to nominate the best The Lord of the Rings websites.
* Us, of course! www.theonering.net
* The Lord of the Rings Movie Site www.tolkien-movies.com
* Imladris www.lordoftheringsmovie.com
* Suite 101 www.suite101.com.welcome/cfm/Tolkien has been around a long time and is very comprehensive for serious and fun stuff for the fans.
There are also a few sites that are excellent but have a different focus:
* The Tolkienist www.thetolkienist.cjb.net has articles, games, music, everything Tolkien.
* The Tolkien Network http://www.tolkien.nu/ does too.
* The Encyclopaedia of Arda www.glyphweb.com/arda can answer any Tolkien-related question.
* MyPrecious www.myprecious.freeuk.com is wonderfully individual and stylish, with music.
* Ardalambion http://www.uib.no/People/hnohf/ wins on sheer intensity of obsession. This site is for people who actually want to learn to read and write imaginary languages like Elvish. It consistently rates highly in other sites top-10 lists.
There are also two good movie news sites based in NZ:
* The Realm of the Ring http://www.realmofthering.com, run by a teenager in Wellington
* Tol Galen http://tolgalen.eq realm.com/
