    Other than Nirn and Azeroth, those are novel-based worlds, yes. But I think the OP just didn't think to include more.

    Unless you've never played any Lord of the Rings game, read the books, or watched the movies you've heard of Arda. If under the name of the part of Arda where most things happen, Middle Earth.

    I don't remember a single mention of Arda in the books, movies, or video games. But then again, it's been a long time since Lord of the Rings was relevant, my memory is probably just fuzzy. The Hobbit was good, maybe that'll revive interest.

    I don't know, I like a few, Azeroth, Tyria or Nirn are up there though.

    There's much more to Arda than LotR, but I guess you wrote LotR since that's the main narrative story?
    Oh yeah, I've always called the whole creation LotR (or Middle Earth but I'm too lazy to type)... never really thought to call it as Arda, blanked for a second when I first clicked on the thread XD

    Arda isn't mentioned in any of those. You need to read more of his writings to get that name.
    LotR and the Hobbit while the most... Story litterature Tolkein wrote was by far the least descriptive of the world he created.

    PS I also blanked for a second "Wait, Arda? ... Oh!"

    "Its the 41st millennium and there is only war..."

    Warhammer 40k closely followed by the Fantasy World.

    Space Elves that fly around the galaxy homeless on Spaceships the size of worlds, yeah that boss.
    Dudes that drop from orbit in a metal capsule into a firefight wearing 3 inch think power armor, with a gun the size of a child, tearing shit up.

    Also Dark Elves and Dark Elder are basically the most awesome 'Elves' of all Fantasies, followed closely by Mirkwood/Lorien/Rivendell Elves.

    Planescape. It's a cluster**** where every world/plane of existence in DnD meet, where gods walk among demons and devils and is ruled by the Lady of Pain. Nobody ***** with the Lady of Pain.

    Would have voted for Discworld as well, but since there was no option I went for GRRMs world. The books are very immersive.

    Reading the A song of Ice and Fire series is like playing with an adorable puppy, then someone comes up out of nowhere and shoots the puppy, then punches you in the face

    Well if you want to be a -strict- Tolkienist, all of creation would be called Eä. Arda refers only to the part of that which is the appointed dwelling of the Children of Illuvatar.
    Right, as the world goes, is only in question between equals in power, while the strong do what they can and the weak suffer what they must.

    There is a modern myth that people have always tended towards democracy, constitutions, electoral rights; but in truth, love of freedom has never been the predominant note of popular politics. At most times, popular demand has been for a strong government.
