Why would I like to live in Middle Earth? There are many, MANY reasons why! But here's just a few...

Middle Earth itself...

Lord of the Rings is said to be one of, if not the, greatest fantasy movies of all time. And for a good reason! The world in LOTR is beautiful and the races in it are all incredible! Everything from Rivendell to Gondor is incredible. Watching Lord of the Rings when I was a kid even though I knew it was just a movie, the world in LOTR seemed real to me. I'm almost 21 now and I still feel that this wondeful world is real, like I could just walk right through the boarder into Hobbiton.

The races!

As I previously stated the races from Dwarves, Elves, Orcs, and Hobbits are all amazing! I could spend hours listening to Gandalf tell stories, or to the Elves playing there flutes. Or feast with the Hobbits. Oh the things I would do. (There's a certain elf I'd love to spend time with LOL)

The Weapons!

Among the Elves and humans you see a lot of BEAUTIFUL weapons, and one of the most recognizable is Anduril. Those of you that don't know which sword that is, it's the one that Aragorn is given in the last movie.


Battling Orcs!!

As scary as it might be I would still love to fight Orcs! Fighting alongside Aragorn, Gimli and Legolas would be in enjoyable fight! My weapon of choice for fight Orcs would be a large sword similar to Anduril, which as you may know is a Longsword.

The Longsword: THE KING OF SWORDS!!

There are many reasons I'd want to live in Middle earth, this is just to name a few. Oh, and if you interested learning how to use a sword look into HEMA (Historical European Martial Arts) it's a lot of fun.

Also if you're interested in swords you should check out my YouTube channel where I talk a lot about ancient arms and armour. I also do movie reviews, video game reviews and a bunch of other stuff. Be sure to check it out, I know you wont regret it! :)

Here's a fan song I made honoring Thorin Oakenshield, It's called "Ode to Thorin Oakenshield". It may sound happy at parts, but that's because I wanted it to honor Thorin's memory, so it celebrates his victories as well as his life.
