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.

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.
