LOTRO: Exploring Middle-earth
Exploring Middle-earth: The Ford of Bruinen
The official site for Lord of the Rings Online has been updated with another in the series of Exploring Middle-earth.
As travelers head east toward the Misty Mountains, leaving behind the barren Lone-lands and the treacherous hills of the Trollshaws, the roar of the River Bruinen, or "Loadwater," fills the air. At the Ford of Bruinen, where the Great East Road crosses the mighty river as it approaches the Valley of Rivendell, the swift waters can be easily crossed at these shallows just below the picturesque falls.
