Rivendell Valley is an area within The Trollshaws in the north-eastern region.

This area is in itself one of the largest Elf settlements in Middle-earth, and certainly one of the most renowned. Already 3,000 years ago, Elrond Halfelven founded an elven refuge within The Trollshaws, commonly known as "Rivendell" which means "deep valley of the cleft" in direct translation from the Sindarin name "Imladris". It lies nestled in the valley of the Bruinen river, which flows down the face of the Misty Mountains in the north-east, through the valley and on towards the south through a narrow cleft, impassable for friend as well as foe. In the south a path winds itself up and through a rift in the mountains to High Moor, and in the north a similar path leads north-east to the Misty Mountains. The few enemies who perhaps have a vague idea of where the mythical Rivendell is located would find it impossible to conquer the well trained elves in simple battle. (See the talk page for details on Rivendell versus Rivendell Valley.)

In October 3018 III, Frodo Baggins, Gandalf, Strider, and their friends were rescued from the nine Nazgûl at the Ford of Bruinen by Elf-lord Glorfindel and many elves. They were rapidly brought to Elrond's house, Frodo being in serious need of healing, and the others to rest and eat. The four hobbits soon realized that they were in quite a pickle, entangled in adventures much larger and more dangerous than they could have guessed. Throughout the Epic storyline, Rivendell Valley is an important hub for many Epic events. Here supporters of the Free Peoples find shelter before they set out on diversions or adventures which will in one way or the other support the Company of the Ring.

Notice: While some major services and facilities are found within the Last Homely House, several more services are provided at different locations throughout the entire valley. This page is focusing on quests, services and NPCs which are not bound to specific landmarks or interiors, but it also summarizes the major services and locations for your convenience.

Lore

Founded: II 1697
The hidden refuge of Elrond Halfelven, founded by Elrond in the Second Age against the assaults of Sauron in Eriador. It lay in a deep valley in the western foothills of the Misty Mountains, and endured, under the protection of Elrond's Ring Vilya, until the War of the Ring and beyond. After the War, the Ring's power ended and Elrond passed over the Sea, but Rivendell itself remained, at least for a time, in the keeping of Elrond's sons Elladan and Elrohir. — lorebook
