Love him or hate him, you’ve got to give J.R.R. Tolkien one thing — the dude can build one heck of a fantasy world. So if you have trouble keeping all your dwarves and hobbits in check, we have just the thing for you.

The folks at LOTR Project have put together a massive periodic table of many of the major players in Tolkien’s massive world of Middle-earth. From The Hobbit to the Lord of the Rings trilogy (not to mention all those extra indexes and history texts), Tolkien created a believable nation of characters to populate his fictional world.

Now we have this nifty infographic to keep them all straight. So you should never get Bombur and Bofur mixed up again (right?).
