Re: Mount Doom


From a reader:

Mount Doom is merely the translation of Orodruin from elvish (Sindar) into Westron, the common tongue of the West in Middle Earth. A true geek would be happy with either, much like calling the Great River either The Brandywine or Baranduin. The commenter is just betraying Elf-centricism.

Gods, I need a hobby!

Happy New Year!
