Unknown places

Why did the land keep changing from the First Age to the Third Age.  Was there anything beyond the Dark Lands?

hmm...don't really know what you mean...
do you mean the fact that Belerinad was sunk?
because actually the continent far to the east, known as the dark lands never changed
or maybe you mean the fact that Arda was also rounded after the Downfall of Numenor.

Galadriel - Your answer is simple. Between every great confrontation between the Valar and Morgoth the world is changed, Here is a list of all the Big changes:


First war between Melkor and Valar - The great lake and the Ilse of Almaren have gine, replaced by Endor, Aman and the Gates of Morning.

War of Powers (second war) - the world is changed again. The inland sea of Ringol are gone and the Dark south land comes. Also a great gulf appears in ME.

War of Wrath (last war) - Beleriand mostly sinks underwater and the Realm of Morgoth destroyed. Mordor


Now comes Other changes:


End of the second Age - Eru sinks Numenor and the Inland sea of Helcar submerges.

these are all the pouints you list with a reason why next to each.

you forgot the most important change mouthofsauron
the rounding of Arda when it was made round, like a sphere
and that was also after the Downfall of Numenor

I would not call it the most important. Second it to the First change of the World - the first war between Melkor and the Valar.

depends on your point of view
this was the only change of the shape of Arda
all the others were changes of the content of Arda

It also depends on what you mean as 'Important'.


Important from a geographical perspective - The shape.


Imortant to the inhabitants - The continents

Very True. I can see arguments for both.
