Ered Mithrin (Sindarin for The Grey Mountains) is a large mountain range to the north of Rhovanion. Their western end connected to the Misty Mountains at the site of Mount Gundabad, an ancient Dwarven holy site and later the capital for the Orcs of the north.

Eryn Lasgalen and the Dale-lands

Eryn Lasgalen and the Dale-lands

Eryn Lasgalen and the Dale-lands is a region found within the land of Rhovanion.

(Sindarin for Wood of Greenleaves), once known as the Mirkwood and often referred to as Strongholds of the North, was a dense and heavy woodland that made up much of the eastern portion of Rhovanion or the Wilderland, that maintained its borders and relative shape for many ages. The Kingdom of Dale was a kingdom in northern Rhovanion formed in the late Third Age by King Bard and populated by Northmen. Dale-lands consisted of the city of Dale and the valley of the River Running before the gates of the Lonely Mountain. By the time of the War of the Ring its boundaries extended far south and east of Lake-town, all the way to the River Carnen.

The Great River

The Great River

The Great River is a region found within the land of Rhovanion.

(Sindarin for Anduin) flows from the Grey and Misty Mountains in far north, between Lothlórien and Mirkwood, through the Argonath into West Rohan and onto Gondor, before emptying into Belegaer, the Great Sea to the South.

The signs of war lie along the shores of the Great River as Isengard and Barad-dûr put their dark plans into motion. Assist the Sentinels of Lothlórien in patrolling their southern boarders, seek out Galadriel’s wisdom and confront ancient enemies of Rohan, the Easterlings, as they gather for an attack on Rohan and Lórien.

Iron Hills

Iron Hills is a region found within the land of Rhovanion.

This region is rich in minerals, most notably iron – whence came the name of the Hills. The Hills were originally a part of the massive Iron Mountains where Morgoth dwelt; other remains of this vanished range were the Mountains of Angmar and Ered Mithrin. The Iron Hills were also the source of the River Redwater, the reddish colour of which came from iron particles in its water. The river joins onto the River Running.

Lothlórien

Lothlórien

Lothlórien is a region found within the land of Rhovanion.

(Sindarin for Dream-flower) was a forest and Elven realm near the lower Misty Mountains. It was first settled by Nandorin Elves, but later populated by Ñoldor and Sindar under Celeborn of Doriath and Galadriel, daughter of Finarfin. It was located on the River Celebrant, southeast of Khazad-dûm, and was the only place where the golden Mallorn trees grew.

Galadriel's magic, later revealed as the power of her ring Nenya, enriched the land and made it a magic forest into which evil could not enter without difficulty. The only way that Lothlórien could have been conquered by the armies of Mordor is if Sauron had come there himself. [2]

Moria

See Moria for more details

Moria (Sindarin for Black Abyss/Chasm/Pit) was the name given by the Eldar to the Dwarven kingdom which was properly called Khazad-dûm (Khuzdul for Dwarves' Delvings/Mansions). The Sindar adapted the Dwarvish name as Hadhodrond, and the Noldor as Cassarondo. Men called it the Dwarrowdelf (Archaic Westron for Dwarf-delving).

It is an enormous underground complex in north-western Middle-earth, comprising a vast network of tunnels, chambers, mines and huge halls or 'mansions', that ran under and ultimately through the Misty Mountains. There, for many thousands of years, lived the Dwarf clan known as the Longbeards in this city and one-time centre of dwarven industry. For over a thousand years of the Third Age it was widely known by the name Moria. It is located in Rhovanion, between Eregion and Lothlórien.

The Vales of Anduin is a region within northern Rhovanion, east of the Misty Mountains, south of the Floodfells, west of Eryn Lasgalen and Middle Mirkwood, and north of Lothlórien.

On the western eaves of Mirkwood, along the banks of Anduin to the north of the Old Forest Road reside the Beornings, a rustic tribe of Woodmen.

All Beornings hail from these woods and dales surrounding the Anduin, from the shores near the Carrock up to the High Pass through the Misty Mountains. All Beorning players begin their journey in these Vales at Grimbeorn's Lodge.

Wells of Langflood

Wells of Langflood


Wells of Langflood is a region within Rhovanion. Langflood is the Rohirrim name for the river with the Sindarin name Anduin. Both names mean "Long River", reflecting the fact that it flows from this region and all the way south to the Bay of Belfalas. The Wells of Langflood lie west of Ered Mithrin and the Withered Heath, north of the Vales of Anduin, east of the Misty Mountains, and south of Elderslade and Upper Anduin.
