Regions are zones within the lands of Middle-earth. Currently the two accessible lands in Lord of the Rings Online are Eriador and the wilderness of Rhovanion. Regions are marked in large text on the maps of Eriador and Rhovanion. Each region has its own dedicated map showing the areas, settlements and landmarks within its borders.

Rhovanion is a wide region of north-east Middle-earth lying between the Misty Mountains in the west and Rhun in the east.
