Rogues of the Borderlands
Lindon is the land beyond the Blue Mountains Blue Mountains, in the northwest of Middle-earth. It is the westernmost land of the continent. The Gulf of Lune divides it into Forlindon (North Lindon) and Harlindon (South Lindon). Mithlond or the Grey Havens stand near the mouth of the River Lhûn at the gulf’s eastern end.
In the Third Age Lindon was ruled by Gil-galad’s ally, the Sindarin elf Círdan the Shipwright, master of Mithlond. Círdan’s task was to build ships for the Elves departing Middle-earth to sail to the West. By the end of the Third Age, the majority of Lindon’s population resided in or around the harbour of the Grey Havens, while the rest settled along the shores of the Gulf of Lhûn. Lindon is one of the few populated areas of northwestern Middle-earth that has remained untouched by events leading up to the coming War of the Ring.
