@grogleberry - Thanks for pointing those out. I'll fix the names when I have time :)

I made this map before The Forgotten came out with its new map size. A LudiKRIS map would have a lot more space and would solve the problems about the cramped areas in the center. In any case, I would need to remake the entire map. Perhaps I will have time to do that at some point ...

The Dwarven Hero in Rivendell is Erik the Red (presumably it should be Gimli).
Saruman's name is misspelled (Sauroman).
It seems like you would've had more space in the middle of the map (Mirkwood, Lothlorien, Moria) if you had left out the big empty space in Mordor.

Other than that, great job!

@Zetnus - thats a fantastic idea! incorporating the sneakiness and subterfuge of the ring instead of raw power!

@Finn the Human - Well now that you pointed it out, there really should be a reward for finding The One Ring. I've been playing around with with the options and I think I found a good solution. I can make it so that picking up The One Ring now researches spies for you for free. What do you think of that as a reward?
