Middle-earth: Starter Area, Lands, Regions, Areas, Settlements, Landmarks, Maps

Each region of Middle-earth is divided into different sections, or Areas. When entering an area its name always reads in yellow, no other location names are tinted in yellow. Area names always read by large text on the map and under your mini-map, unless being within the borders of a landmark.

Areas generally have settlements, small camp-sites or villages, where you can barter, trade, and find quests. Each area has several landmarks that are specific Points of Interest, whether in relation to the lore of the game or the quests you are attempting.

When an Area and a Settlement are the same, use the Boilerplate:Location Settlements because that is the intuitive resolution from a player's perspective. Manually add the page to the area-category it should pertain to. Add a comment in the initial paragraphs. Always add a comment on the fact to the talk-page of the location.

When an Area and a World Instance are the same, use Template:Infobox Instances because that is the intuitive resolution from a player's perspective. Do not add the page to the area-category, neither is any comment required. Remember that it is just a technicality that Turbine is using the area-concept for world instances, it does not turn instances into areas.
However, should the area cover much land outside the instance it should be handled as an area; see Fornost and Garth Agarwen for examples (those two are in fact areas which contain smaller instances and not world instances in themselves).
