Exploring Middle-earth: Nimrodel

Exploring Middle-earth: Nimrodel  - Lord of the Rings Online -

Turbine has posted a new dev journal which takes a look at Nimrodel, a well know area in Tolkien lore and a new area added to Lord of the Rings Online with the Mines of Moria Expansion.

The river Nimrodel was named after an Elf-maiden of old who once dwelt by a waterfall there, and fell in love with Amroth, the Lord of Lórien. Long ago, they left Lothlórien together for the haven of Edhellond, but Nimrodel disappeared in the White Mountains and her fate remains unknown. In later years, the River Nimrodel served as the site of a watchpost of the Galadhrim, kept by the brothers Haldir, Rúmil, and Orophin.

The waters of Nimrodel are said to bring healing to the weary, and some claim they can hear the voice of the maiden singing in the falls. As the War of the Ring has worsened, the waters have been defiled by the filthy feet of Orcs, and the Elves of Lothlórien seek vengeance.

The river Nimrodel is visited by the Fellowship of the Ring after they escape from Moria in J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings. Players of The Lord of the Rings Online™: Mines of Moria™ may find respite – or danger – near its waters.
