[...] in the great fief of Belfalas, dwelt Prince Imrahil in his castle of Dol Amroth by the sea, and he was of high blood, and his folk also, tall men and proud with sea-grey eyes.

The Return of the King, Minas Tirith

Dor-en-Ernil (Sindarin for "Land of the Prince") is a fiefdom of Gondor and home to the Swan Knights. The mighty city and port of Dol Amroth is situated within these lands.

Similarly to Rohan, Dor-en-Ernil is a great place for a fortress or base to due to the uncanny amounts of extremely powerful mounted mobs which evil players always dread.

Upon entering this biome, the player earns the achievement "Land of the Prince".

Sub-biomes[edit | edit source]

Mobs[edit | edit source]

Dor-en-Ernil is populated with Swan Knights and Men-at-arms both on foot and on horseback. Mordor Orcs have a chance of spawning at night, although less than in the rest of Gondor. Dor-en-Ernil is also home to swans around water sources. Be careful around the swans, however - they do bite.

Structures[edit | edit source]

There are a variety of generated structures that may be found within Dol Amroth:

Fixed Structures[edit | edit source]

Dol Amroth[edit | edit source]

Dol Amroth is a hill upon a peninsula in the Bay of Belfalas. In the lore, the fortress of Prince Imrahil is built atop it.

Conquest[edit | edit source]

Dor-en-Ernil can be conquered by Gondor, Mordor, Rhúdel, Near Harad, Half-trolls and Isengard. The conquest rate is 0.5.

Mining[edit | edit source]

Dor-en-Ernil features the standard ore distribution, but unlike other biomes it also features Gondor Rock below the surface. This rock is essential for the crafting of Gondorian building materials, and can be found in a thin layer beneath the dirt surface of the biome, in patches underground, and in boulders on the surface.

Vegetation[edit | edit source]

The beautiful subtropical province of Dor-en-Ernil has an green and flourishing environment, with abundant flower and grass variants. Forests contain predominately oak, birch, and cedar trees. The grass is also greener here than in most other biomes. Lime, lemon, orange, apple, pear, almond, plum and olive trees can also be found here somewhat commonly and the region is also home to orchards for all of these fruit tree types.

Athelas has a fairly small chance to spawn here, as with the rest of Gondor.
