If you’re like me and wish you could crawl into one of your favorite books and live there forever and ever and ever and… well, you get the point. Then I’m going to rock your world with the news that every fantasy freak has been waiting to hear for pretty much their entire lives – LOTR just got real.
What I mean to say, is that there is a IndieGoGo campaign to create the infamous LOTR capital city of Gondor, Minas Tirith. In otherwords, if this campaign goes through, there will be a Minas Tirith located in somewhere, England that normal, everyday humanoids can go visit! No, I am not kidding. This is not something to joke about.
So if you want to see a beautiful life-size replica of the city you’ve read about for years in J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings novels and, if you’re as big of a fantasy geek as me, watching all of Peter Jackson’s LOTR films over and over and – again, you get the point – then check out the IndieGoGo campaign page today. If you help support this ginormous endeavor then you could be gifted with anything from a Lordship/Ladyship of the City to your name on a city monument to a free night at Minas Tirith and so much more!
I’m so excited to see if this idea actually blossoms into reality and, if you are too, then check out more of the details at the IndieGoGo page to get better informed. The goal is to reach £1,850,000,000 within 60 days and with only about half of that time left, people better get to pitching in if they want to see this royal city with there own eyes in a few years.
