OK, lets see- there is Needlehole, Upper and Lower.

Upper has Mrs Figgs Emporium for Discreete Ladies.
And Needlehole Town Square. And the Town Hall.
You will also find the Mayors Mansion, the Ambassadorial residence of Amarie and Leelee there.
And the Admin Tower.

Lower Needlehole has the Muck 'n' Duck, my barrel under a tree on the outskirts near the harbour to Valinor and Queen Tin.
The NotP offices.
And the holes of most members.
And overlooking Needlehole you have the Tower of Lore (currently occupied by Elthir).

Just outside Needlehole proper you have the Forumshire Park with its huge erection of Eldo in statue form.
Then you have Daves Suspicious Vegetable Farm and the Buckie Brewery- by Royal appointment- and beyond that Russett Bog- where Odo rents out leaky holes to the unsuspecting.
Azriel keeps her hole in Russet Bog, near to nature for her witchy ways.

Then you have the outlying regions- Scotshobbit Lands where the buckie is brewed and imported from and where Pure Publications is based.
Fjordlandia- where the army wears pink and saves Forumshire from Troll incursions. And where the
Fjordlandia Viking bar & kaffistove is located.
Then there is OZhobbitstan and the Land of the UShobbits.
Oh and 1874- which is were and when Figg lives!

Sure Ive missed loads of places but hopefully those will help with your 'secret' project Suspect

I thought it was Rushock Bog. scratch

Anyway, the geography of Forumshire bends very easily to the needs of whatever artistic or written representation it's serving, but Petty did a pretty good job of summing it up. There's also Bree (which is apparently destroyed/abandoned again), and Michel Delving, which is the capital of Forumshire in some versions. Though many other versions focus just on Needlehole and the immediate surrounds, which includes the bog.

Yes sorry Eldo- you are right its Rushock Bog- although like many places in Forumshire spelling is in the eye of the beholder! Very Happy
And new places can pop up at any time!

Good point Mrs Figg.  Yes, the Lockholes.

And don't forget the offices of the Daily Bugle and the News of the Pure.

And the Tower of Lore (which seems to move around a bit) is not only the residence of the Admin but also houses the mysterious Room of Shoes. Although Petty tried to help Elthir take over it once. Mad

Valinor is floating around somewhere too.

I believe there are two towers now Eldo- originally you ran Admin and Lore from the Tower of Lore overlooking Needlehole- but then got deposed by Elthir and had to build a new Admin Tower in Needlehole.
The shoe pile is behind the Tower of Lore and may or may not according to local legend have Baingil somewhere underneath it!

Not knowing you built a new Admin Tower is just the sort of reason why you lost the Lore Master title!

LOL. Wow, I guess Forumshire geography wasn't my strong point. Why didn't I realize sooner that most places have to be somewhere?

Most places have to be somewhere. But somewhere doesn't have to be most places.
