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.

These Boilerplates use one of the five Category: Infobox Templates:


The same basic template is used on all landmark pages. The parameters for this template are:

  • name (Required): The name of the landmark. Default: {{subst:PAGENAME}}
  • type (Optional): Whether it's wilderness, a building, mountain, lake, or statue. Default: not included
  • region (Required): The region name. Default: none
  • area: The area name. Default: none. If area equals region only the region is displayed.
  • settlement Optional): The name of the settlement containing the landmark. If area equals settlement only the settlement is displayed.
  • pointOfInterest: (optional): Blank, or any text. See below for usage.
  • map (Required): The map name for use with the location tooltip. Default: none
  • NS (Required): The North/South value from the ;loc command in-game including either N or S at the end. Default: 0.00N
  • EW Required): The East/West value from ;loc command in-game including either E or W at the end. Default: 0.00E
