The Shaping of Ambar through the Ages

The planet of Ambar originally had been one great continent known as Nóri Landar or Keme, but during the great wars between Morgoth and the Valar this continent was broken into three smaller landmasses, Aman or the outer lands, Middle-Earth or the hitherlands and Easternesse or the burned lands of the Sun, which were separated by two great oceans, the Belegaer and the Romeneär.In the second Age the Valar rose the much smaller island-continent of Númenor from the bottom of the sea, but with the fall of Númenor not only the isle itself sank beneath the waves but also Aman was removed from the circles of the world. During the late first or early second Age also the southern parts of Middle-earth seem to have separated from the main landmass and became a smaller continent of their own known as Southernesse or the Dark lands.
