Hero's Guide to the Trollshaws

Hero's Guide to the Trollshaws  -

Turbine has published a new developer journal which guides players through the Trollshaws, a dangerous region where civilized species should tread carefully.


The Trollshaws stretch east of Bree and the Shire, beyond the Lone-lands, in the area long ago inhabited by the Men of Rhûdaur and into the territory that was once the North Kingdom of Arnor. When the Witch-king was defeated and the lands of Rhûdaur were cast into ruin, the region became known as the Trollshaws, a wooded land inhabited by evil trolls. The Trollshaws are filled with towering pine and beech trees, and the horizons are often blocked by high hills and steep, impassable cliffs that shadow deep gorges and dead-end ravines.

Nestled between the Lone-lands to the west, the Misty Mountains to the east, the Ettenmoors to the north, and Eregion to the south, the Trollshaws have been largely uninhabited by the civilized races and are dotted with ruined fortifications that serve as lairs to some of Middle-earth's most savage beasts. With an eastern border of the River Hoarwell, spanned by the Last Bridge, intersected by the River Bruinen, and closed off by the western impasse of the Misty Mountains, the Trollshaws are an isolated region full of powerful and corrupt monsters that prey upon those bound for Rivendell or Moria.
