Elves of Ered Luin

Elves of Ered Luin - MMORPG.com

The folks at Lord of the Rings Online have updated their site once again with a look at some of the new places created by the LotRO development team. This time around they look at the Elven refuges of Ered Luin and the starting area for Elf characters.

Hundreds of years before the events of The Lord of the Rings, the Elves of Lindon founded a refuge upon the slopes of Ered Luin, where wood for the White Ships was gathered and elven wine was made. Edhelion, it was called, and it was a place of contemplation and peace . . . until Skorgrím Dourhand, an evil Dwarf-lord descended from the kings who once ruled the long-ruined kingdoms of the Blue Mountains, led his people, allied with goblins and trolls, against this elven refuge.

Talagan Silvertongue, the Master of Edhelion, sacrificed himself to defeat Skorgrím, but Edhelion was abandoned in respect for its many fallen defenders. The Elves removed themselves to the foothills of Ered Luin and founded a new refuge, Duillond, nearer to the elven port of Celondim, which ferried the wood gathered in the mountains down the river Lhûn to Mithlond, the Grey Havens. The Elves of Duillond lived in relative peace with the dwarves of Durin's line who had followed Thráin and Thorin into exile in the Blue Mountains, but now tensions between Elf and Dwarf is rising once more.

Edhelion, Duillond, and Celondim are all locations created by the developers of The Lord of the Rings OnlineTM: Shadows of AngmarTM to provide a starting point for players who choose to create Elf characters. Elf players will get to experience the fall of Edhelion, six hundred years prior to the events of LOTRO, and help uncover a sinister plot brewing in Ered Luin.
