I use that site all the time. Any time I have a query about tolkiens works, or am looking for a particular bit of information, I always go there. I always get bugged because I can't remember some specific thing, and I can normally clear it up by going on that site.
I do sgree though that it needs some more updates.

the encyclopedia of arda's useful if your searching for stuff thats well-known, and extremely useful for games... *cheating* but if your searching for some unknown character or something it doesnt give u the best results. but overall i think its a great site.

That's a 'duh'.

Encyclopedia of Arda is quite useful and is one of my first references when researching information for role plays. Its not 100% accurate, and should be checked against the published works of Tolkien, but the ease of finding basic information is quite handy.

Another good reference site is Annals of Arda.

I've found Tolkien Gateway has a lot of articles on things which EoA leaves out.

I just recently found this great site, Encyclopedia of Arda, that helps ones to find interesting facts and answers questions. I tknow that ones here have been using it for sometime but I always say, 'better late than never'. :-D

It was a good-natured 'duh' :-D

The Encyclopedia of Arda is an ongoing work, and there usually is a bit about planned updates on the topics. Tolkien Gateway is alright, but anyone can edit it so the valadity of the information is sometimes questionable.
