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.

Instance

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.


This template is meant for locations that provide some kind of services. A location with several quest givers but no services should probably use Boilerplate:Location Landmarks. For same-name areas, use this template (see Boilerplate:Location Areas). See more comments at the end of this page.

Notice:

Some settlements are so big that splitting them into several pages will make the information easier to find. For example, often a craft fair contains very specific information, thus having long lists of information just dilute the main page of the settlement. Another argument is that contained sections, blocks, squares, and interiors contain information that are very local to that location, hence it is better kept local and not in long list. However, the main page must always present these and make it intuitive were the information are found. For examples, see for example Bree, Celondim, Michel Delving, Thorin's Hall, etc.
