|“||Silver flow the streams from Celos to Erui
In the green fields of Lebennin!
Tall grows the grass there. In the wind from the Sea
The white lilies sway,
And the golden bells are shaken of mallos and alfirin
In the green fields of Lebennin,
In the wind from the Sea!
–Legolas in The Return of the King, "The Last Debate"
Lebennin is a picturesque land, and is very similar to Gondor, except there are fewer fortresses and Orcs. There are a few more trees here, as well. This land is populated by Gondor soldiers and Lebennin levymen, who protect this land against the Orcs and foul creatures that spawn. It is called the "fair land of the five streams." Lebennin is located south of the White Mountains and east of the part of Gondor surrounding the hills. It connects to the ocean at its southern-most edge. The aforementioned five streams are the river Anduin, the Celos, the Sirith, the Serni, and the Gilraen.
Upon entering the fiefdom of Lebennin, you gain the achievement "Five Fair Streams".
This is a large swampy area surrounding the mouths of the Great River, Anduin. The only structures that spawn here are ruined houses.

Lebennin 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.
Lebennin, like Gondor, is mostly empty plains, but there are more trees here, although not by too much. Scattered groves and woodlands usually consist of broadleaf trees birch, oak, and beech. The uncommon maple tree and Almond tree also grows here. The grass is greener here due to the fertility brought by the water of the Anduin and the five streams in the land, and tall grass growth rate is average. Flower growth is average. Like all realms previously or currently occupied by the Númenóreans and their descendants, athelas grows in Lebennin.
