Deep in the heart of Eriador lies the land that everyone must pass through at some point: Bree-land. Race of Man starts out here, and most other characters will head here after running out of things to do in their homelands, staying here until around level 20 or later.
Bree-land lies more or less at the centre of Eriador, and most locations in Eriador can be reached from the stable-masters in Bree-town. It is mostly settled by Race of Man and Hobbits - the architecture of Bree-town, Archet and Combe is largely that of men, while Staddle and Buckland is clearly the work of Hobbits. The Barrow-downs, once a great capital of the Dunedain and now a great cemetery plagued with Barrow-wights, and the Old Forest, a gloomy, dark remnant of primordial forest that once covered much of the land, have their own sub-maps, as does Bree-town.
