The Atlas (locations)
WILDERLANDS
The wild lands extending from the Misty Mountains as far as the Running River are known as Wilderland. There are many good reasons for such an ominous name. Not only did the region once host a Dragon’s lair, but its greater part is occupied by the forest of Mirkwood, home to giant spiders, Orcs and other dangerous creatures.
Nevertheless, Wilderland has changed significantly in recent years. Smaug, the Dragon of Erebor, bane of the Northern world, has been killed (in 2941), and the Necromancer has been driven from his fastness in Southern Mirkwood a long time ago.
Many proud folk - such as hobbit inn builders! -  are reclaiming their lost dominions: to the north rises the Lonely Mountain, a solitary peak that houses an underground stronghold of Dwarves of the line of Durin; on the valley below stands Dale, a city of Northmen newly rebuilt from its ruins, close to the trading town of Esgaroth on the Long Lake; from hidden halls dug under the northern eaves of Mirkwood issue again the hosts of King Thranduil, ruler of the Woodelves; near the Ford of Carrock on the river Anduin, the Beornings, a folk of Men following the lead of Beorn the Skin-changer, keep their watch; while to the south the settlements of the Woodmen
Wilderland stretches between the Misty Mountains to the west, the forbidding Grey Mountains to the north, the river Redwater to the east and the Brown Lands to the south. In this age of insular communities and limited travel, most new maps cover small areas, rarely extending beyond the land governed by the king or chieftain who commissioned them.
The map of Wilderland you see on the wall behind the bar of the Easterly Inn is a rare piece, said to be compiled using information collected by Bilbo the Hobbit during his journey, and completed with material gathered at a later date from wandering Elves and Dwarves visiting the Shire.
