Rogues of the Borderlands
Situated in lands south of the Nan-i-Naugrim, the city of Mithlond (S. “Gray Havens”) stands in eternal beauty. This jewel, located at the mouth of the River Lhûn, is the easternmost point of Lindon. The lands beyond the borders of the Blue Mountains, Forlindon and Harlindon, support the largest population of Eldar in Middle-earth. Yet, the Elves of Lindon are rarely seen in the hills of Numeriador. Nearly sixty miles north of Mithlond, one small community of Elves dwell in secluded peace. This haven has been named Galenros (S. “Green Spray”) by its
inhabitants, after the cascade beside which it was founded. Quite often, any trade that occurs with the Eldar in Numeriador is accomplished through the Elves of Galenros
The Elves of Lindon are often called Noldor, “High Elves”, ostensibly because they are considered to be the most noble among the Elves of Middle-earth. In reality, they are so named because they are the only Elves living in Middle-Earth who have resided in the Blessed Realm of Aman across the sea. This exalted status is accentuated by their close ties with the Valar, a relationship which accounts for their unique cultural and linguistic roots.
