Further NotesEdit



  • Possible error: Arriving from sections (61) or (96) we encounter a river running south-north. We cross it and go eastwards to (183) and (152), leaving it behind. Then a new tunnel starts northwards (89) where the river magically reappears. It is possible the new tunnel and the river begin to run parallel as they are both north-south oriented.
  • Typos: (140) mentions a Rune of Life and a Rune of Chaos, while at (99) there is a Rune of Good and a Rune of Chaos.
  • Typos: (145) mentions a female Hobbit character: "her escorts were taking him back to the cells".
