They passed Tarlang’s Neck and came into Lamedon; and the Shadow Host pressed behind and fear went on before them, until they came to Calembel upon Ciril, and the sun went down like blood behind Pinnath Gelin away in the West.

The Passing of the Grey Company, The Return of the King

Lamedon is a series of valleys in the Ered Nimrais through which the Ringló and Ciril rivers flow south. It largely consists of scattered woodlands, hills and boulders. Lamedon is a populous region which is home to the Hillmen of Lamedon. During the War of the Ring its Lord was Angbor, whom Aragorn dubbed “the fearless”.

Upon entering the fiefdom of Lamedon, you gain the achievement "Hills and Vales".


Vast forests and dotted boulders decorate these highlands.

Mining Edit

All ores spawn as normal here though beneath the initial layer of earth Gondor Rock is found, this material can be useful in the crafting of Gondor Brick.

Vegetation Edit

The grass in Lamedon is a browner shade than that of the rest of Gondor, similar to that of the Lone-lands. However, the terrain here often features reasonable patches of exposed dirt too. As Lamedon is a less fertile upland region Common Vegetation makes up the majority of the flora which is to be found. Although, as with the rest of Gondor, Athelas can spawn here rarely. The biome is also quite thickly forested and a variety of trees including Oak, Birch, Larch, Aspen and Beech are to be seen throughout it.
