Location Boilerplates

This article is a navigation tool to help you create a new location article. There are multiple types of locations and those types are labeled below with their corresponding boilerplates, which give you a clean copy of the formatted guideline to copy / paste when creating a new location.

Land

Lands of Middle-earth are represented on the map as the first layer when viewing the map of Middle-earth.

Check out Category:Lands to see if the land article already exists!

Region

Regions of Middle-earth are represented on the map as the second layer when viewing the map of Middle-earth, found in one of the four land maps.

Use Boilerplate:Regions to create a new region article.

Areas

Boilerplate:Location Interiors

Instances

Instances of Middle-earth are represented as a private-world instance (shared only by an individual character or as a fellowship) going from the outside world into a special "instance" of the game for quests, dungeons, and raids.

Use Boilerplate:Instances to create a new instance article.

Location Template

To be Edited...

Fill out the suggested details; if something essential is missing, add a {{Stub/X}} where X may be Image, Location, Other, etc., so that others may find and complement your submission. The templates will automatically add the location to the correct Lotro-Wiki Category; however, you may want to manually add the location to e.g. Public Dungeons, Ruins, etc.

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