Infobox location templates provide important information related to each location type - often showing links to other places either higher or lower on the hierarchy of locations.
- Currently Land and Region articles do not have Infobox Templates.
- Here's an example: Rhovanion (Land); Moria (Region); Zelem-melek (Area); 21st Hall (Settlement); Chamber of Mazarbul (Landmark); Chamber of Leadership (Interior); An instance may be launched with the Instance Finder for the skirmish Battle of the Twenty-first Hall
