Scale? [In reply to] Can't Post

The scale on your map of Wilderland seems badly out-of-whack to me. Distances seem to be more than double of what they ought to be. I have a feeling that this was done intentionally to bring the distances more in line with the travel times given by Tolkien.

I've been using Karen Wynn Fonstad's The Atlas of Middle-earth for most of my distances. Fonstad's scales match much better with Tolkien's map of Middle-earth in my copy of The Fellowship of the Ring.
