    And the terrain is chalkstone; the Willywitthel spring was near Bombadil's house and it was described as a bubbling milk stream.

    No that just means that the terrain is chalk

    Sorry for all the off-topic-ish stuff above. Are we going to change the path through the Barrow Downs?

    One more inconsistency I've found whilst reading the book is that in the book when being led through Lothlorien by the Galadhrim Frodo and co are shown Cerin Amroth by Haldir who even takes Frodo and Sam all the way up to the top. Whilst on the server the path goes straight past Cerin Amroth without stopping. Also, on the server the path keeps following the road whilst in the book they continue through thickets in the dark and reaches Caras Galadhon from the north where they walk along a paved road along the west side of the city until they reach the city gates in the south.
    One other thing is that the path never leaves the road to go to the flets where the company spends the night hiding from the orcs of Moria.

    I'll make a map like I did for the Barrow Downs as soon as I get access to my PC again.

    Hmm it has been a while since I put the footprints down in Loth but if I recall correctly I did choose a flet to be the one from the books and added footprints to it, and I am also fairly sure that I remembered to add the detour to Cerin Amroth

    I found the flet they slept in. The reason I missed it was because I didn't start looking for it until after I had crossed the Nimrodel as it was soon after they crossed the river that they left the road to seek shelter in the book but on the server that flet is located a while before the Nimrodel. Also I didn't look for a second flet on the server but in the book they sleep on two different flets, one for the hobbits and a coupple galadhrim and another for the rest of the company and assumingly some more galadhrim a little further in.

    And I can assure you that the current path on the server passes by Ceren Amroth and does not go up to it.

    I'm in the progress of making a map but due to all the trees it's really hard to map it out.
