INTRODUCTION

A wide-open region of low, craggy hills, arid riverbeds and
ancient Elven ruins from a time of great prosperity, Eregion sits
between the Trollshaws in the north and Enedwaith in the south, and
marks the sole passage from Eriador into Moria and Rhovanion in the
east. Also
known as Hollin, it was a kingdom of the Noldorin Elves during the
Second Age, ruled by Galadriel and Celeborn until they left for
Lothlorien, and then ruled by Celebrimbor, who, deceived by Sauron
(under the guise of the Lord of the Gifts, Annatar), here forged the
Rings of Power. When Sauron's treachery was revealed, Eregion was laid
waste and the surviving Elves fled to Lindon, Lothlorien and Rivendell.

Nowadays, during the late-Third Age setting of href="http://www.tentonhammer.com/lotro">the Lord
of the
Rings Online
, things are a little quieter here.
After surviving the
perilous ravines of the Trollshaws, the treacherous peaks and
equally-treacherous depths of the Misty Mountains, the frozen hell that
is Forochel and the blackened, hostile wasteland of Angmar, Eregion
feels like a vacation. Even with the half-orcs, wood-trolls and warg
and wolf packs that call the place home. It is a land of wide-open skys
and rolling scenery, and the ruins of its rich history simply beg for
exploration. And it's the last time you'll likely see open skies for a
while - this is the last stop before entering the depths of
Moria.

reputation,
so the link from these pages points to the Elves of Rivendell page.
