Wow, I almost forgot about this.

Here is my letter:

And the stickers:

The N appears to be mostly covered in five-leaf clovers, as well as a few flowers. I'm not sure if the stickers are part of the riddle.

I really liked Catch-22 and Yossarian was the main character of the book. I also just like the name.

So is the lake in the middle of the Zelda 1 map Lake Hylia? Also, are the locations in Skyward Sword and Twilight Princess the same locations as their analogues in other Zelda games, just with different names (e.g. Eldin Volcano is Death Mountain, Faron Woods are the Lost Woods, Lanayru Desert is the Gerudo Valley area etc.). I honestly always thought that each game had a forest, desert, and mountain themed area, as well as a lake in order to incorporate the traditional gameplay elements of the series. It seems so obvious now that each game takes place in the same place.

I like that Termina theory by the way.

It was from the LOTR wiki Beleriand article; I believe it is a fan-made combination of the maps from the beginning of LOTR and The Silmarillion. Tolkien never made many maps of his world, especially not outside of Beleriand and LOTR-era western Middle-earth, so most maps you'll see on the internet are fan-made.

I think users should use either tag whenever they feel it's necessary to speak to one specific gender, otherwise keep things gender-neutral. As a sidenote, I prefer #boyski to #byyski, and #girlski to #grrlski for that matter.

Does anyone seriously think that the developers of Zelda ever attempted to create a consistent geographic world where all the games take place? I always felt like they sacrificed a consistent geographic world for more freedom in crafting the world of each game. Plus, they can always explain away any discrepancies with the fact that each game takes place hundreds or thousands of years apart from each other. But then there's Termina- no one can really agree on what or where that is.

This map seriously disorients me.

Makes sense. How about #byyski if you want a man's perspective, although based on the demographics of hubski, that tag probably isn't necessary.

What is the point of this tag? Is it for sharing things that are specifically aimed at women and/or interesting to them?

Here's the west coast of Middle-earth, Beleriand, before the Valar sunk it at the end of the Second Era and the new west coast became Eriador.

The mountains labelled Ered Luin at the very right are the same mountains on the very left of your map, also labelled Ered Luin.

This probably explains better:

Upstate represent!

Edit: I see I didn't actually answer your question. I'm from Broadalbin, a small town of 5000 not very close to Rochester.
