Jä-rannit is an area within Forochel in the north-eastern region.

The name is Finnish for "Ice Coast" and the area lies north of Itä-mâ, between the north-eastern shore of the Ice Bay of Forochel and the towering mountain ridges. Unlike the rest of Forochel, no elk can be found within Jä-rannit, likely due to the lack of vegetation. In their place, many bears, peikkos, and worms call these icy wastes their home, likely living off fish from the bay. From the main road a path forks off eastwards for the ancient Forodwaith, where large amounts of Angmarim have set up camp with in the dwarven ruins of the Ironspan and Reodh Fuil. They are also found at the ice expanse in the south-most section of the area, by the shores of the ice bay.

The northbound main road runs from Itä-mâ, past a Camp Site Fire where Olavi and a few Lossoth fishermen are gathered. They are unable to reach the shores because of the disturbed wildlife and the large population of Angmarim swarming the area. Another Camp Site Fire is found at the utter north-west-most corner of Jä-rannit, as well as a boat which takes adventurers to the glacial iceberg, Sâri-surma.

In Sûri-kylä, the capital village, the Lossoth are worried about the dark tidings they've noticed, and how it affects their game and stocking up for the winter. Hence they offer quests aiming at gathering materials and pressing back the threats they see. The village provides the services of a Bard, Mailbox, Milestone, Reflecting Pool, Stable-master, and all sorts of class trainers. Also within the village's walls are a Captain and Guardian Trainer who have lost their fellowship among other things.

Inside the Great Lodge of Sûri-kylä are a Vault-keeper, Healer, Provisioner, Supplier, and some expert craft trainers for the Forge and Workbench, as well as for the Ovens. The lodge also serves as the headquarters for the Lossoth of Forochel and their reputation reward vendors.

The Witch-king manifests his evil intent in Forochel too. East of Jä-rannit, a road runs through a series of Dwarf-built walls and gates—now held by Angmarim soldiers—to a long and forgotten pass into Angmar. Via this passage, agents of the Enemy sneak into Forochel in search of ancient treasures and a new foothold in the North. From there, they plan to sweep down into Evendim and finally lay claim to all the reaches of the ancient Dunedain kingdom of Arthedain. - Hero's guide
