    I don't see the problem with having all Gondorian cities and warps being Sindarin. All the places where the names are attested - Minas Tirith, Cair Andros, Osgiliath, Linhir, Dol Amroth... - ARE sindarin, there are no towns in Gondor that go by a non-Sindarin name. So there wont be any towns we'd refer to by a different name than under which they are commonly known.

    There may be exceptions, which are rather descriptions than names, like the Crossroads of Ithilien or the Stone of Erech, I think these are just fine in English

    @Thijs1801 as mentioned by a few people in the most recent staff meeting, it would be really helpful to have more frequent/complete updates on this project. A project map would be super helpful. Especially to those of us who do not know the names of each town and how many are left.

    @barteldvn is making great progress with Sea Town. I am with @Merlinc01 and @QuantaCube are planning upper New Town and building the lower part/drydocks. @Kjolsen has planned most of Gem Town and will work with @dav3ck when Sea Town is finished. I will start planning the Royal Town as soon as Sea Town is finished.

    Hope this helps

    I'm definitely not leading it, but I do contribute a lot to it.
