The Vales of Anduin is an area within northern Rhovanion, east of the Misty Mountains and the Carrock. All Beorning players begin their journey in these Vales at Grimbeorn’s Lodge.

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.

This peaceful hidden valley, also known as Vale of the Great River, is the home of Grimbeorn and his kin, the Beornings. It lies to the east of the Carrock and the great river, the Anduin, and to the west of Mirkwood.

It is said that Hobbits trace their ancestry back to these vales. Men, said to have been descended from the Edain of the First Age, also made their home here originally. Over time, the area became crowded and a great shadow settled over the forest named Greenwood the Great as it slowly became the Mirkwood as it is known today.This contributed to the mass exodus of the folk who called these vales home. As the hobbits traveled west, the men traveled north leading to the vale becoming more and more dangerous over time.
