Well, a looooong time ago, there was a website called gamesofgondor. But soon, everytime i went to game of gamesofgondor, i got redirected to a website called armor games (the old one that didnt have forums and stuff)
And gamesofgondor was gone in a flash, even games that were made by games of gondor said games of gondor, but still redirected to the armor games.
So, whatever DID happen to that website? Iv always been wondering.

Any made up word relating to 'Tolkien' automatically gets copyrighted.

Since 'Gondor' was a made up city in the book, the word was protected and 'GamesofGondor' had to be shut down.

Yeah, it was a great website name. Too bad it had to be changed.

Yep, Tolkien Enterprises is very strict! John got in trouble too for using the word 'Hobbit' in one of his games, so he had to change it.
