Bonfire Glade

Bonfire Glade -

The Lord of the Rings Online Lorebook has been updated with another look at one of the many locations of interest across Middle Earth.  This time around it's Bonfire Glade, located in the Old Forest.

Within the Old Forest, just east of Buckland and not far from the protective hedge of the High Hay, adventurers will find a broad, circular clearing amongst the dense and ancient trees. The Bonfire Glade is a seemingly pleasant place of long grasses, surrounded by dense forest and open to the sky; however, one cannot seem to escape a strange lingering sense of woe and foreboding.

The Bonfire Glade reminds travellers of a time long ago, when the relationship between the Hobbits of Buckland and the dark, mysterious Old Forest was openly hostile. It is said that the High Hay was built to defend Buckland from the shadowy creatures of the Old Forest, and perhaps even the very trees themselves. Legends tell of the trees attacking Buckland, looming over the High Hay, and of the Brandybucks’ invasion of the Old Forest in retaliation, cutting down many trees and building a huge bonfire. To this day, no tree grows in this space of the Great Burning, serving as a reminder of those terrible events.
