I saw this at another forum, and I thought people here would get a kick out of it.

Quest for Middle-earth

Make sure you click on the "About the Author" page, as well as reading the first chapter (if you dare).

Anyone who starts their quest for Middle Earth in Chichen Itza has missed the boat. Literally. The New World? Seriously?

But yeah, okay, so I know they have an agenda of the-aliens-made-me-do-it, and the aliens are more likely to show up there - but at least start with Stonehenge, or something vaguely close to Oxford! At least pretend that you are basing this on, you know, the actual book (though it seems clear that he's using Jackson's movie as his primary source, not the text ~ easier that way, I suppose).


Thanks for sharing, Voronwë. It is amusing, in a painful way....

Oh yeah. I remember well von Däniken and his theories about alien visitors... :P

At least the writer seems to have a vivid imagination, if not much factual knowledge. :roll:

This is a long one, but well worth it if you are/were an RGP gamer.

Folca, I've taken a look at that before, and found it hilarious even though I've never played games like that. :D
