Hirluin the Fair of the Green Hills from Pinnath Gelin with three hundreds of his gallant green-clad men.

The Return of the King, Minas Tirith

Pinnath Gelin, also referred to as the Green Hills, is a fertile patch of hills between the White Mountains and Belegaer.

Pinnath Gelin is bordered by Gondor on all sides, but just Northeast of the biome is Blackroot Vale, home to another sub faction of Gondor.

Pinnath Gelin consists of large rolling hills and sprawling forests. It's home to the Gondorian Fiefdom of Pinnath Gelin.

Upon entering the fiefdom of Pinnath Gelin, you gain the achievement "The Green Hills".

Biome Variants Edit

Compared to the surrounding lands of Gondor and the Anfalas coast, this biome is relatively elevated and forested.

  • Standard - Normal Pinnath Gelin biome. This has relatively many tree clusters, but of a typically smaller size than elsewhere in Gondor.
  • Flowers - The fields and the undergrowth of tree clusters teem with flowers in this biome. Flowery vegetation from both vanilla minecraft (poppies, dandelions etc.) and the LOTR mod (thistles and wheat grass etc.) is abundantly present here.
  • Forest - Forest covered lands.
  • Light Forest - Lightly forested lands.
  • Dead Oak Forest - Lands covered in forests whose glory is passing away. The forest density is comparable to the light forest variant, but there are many stems of dead, leafless trees. This variant is very helpful for acquiring large quantities of wood, as the dead trees provide a lot of easy accessible lumber.
  • Birch Forest - A forest dominated with Birch trees.
  • Apple-Pear Orchard - An orchard containing Apple and Pear trees.
  • Plum Orchard - An orchard containing Plum trees.

Structures Edit

There are many structures that spawn in Pinnath Gelin

Mobs Edit

The region of Pinnath Gelin is constantly under a vigilant watch by the Soldiers of Pinnath Gelin and the Gondorian Militia. At night, Mordor Orcs will spawn.

Mining Edit

Most ores that can be found around Middle-Earth can be found in Pinnath Gelin, although under a layer of Gondor Rock.

Vegetation Edit

The vegetation is a bit more lush than that in the rest of Gondor. Unlike in the surrounding lands, aspen trees grow here, and beeches have made way for chestnut trees. The undergrowth is lusher and has more flowers and tall grasses.

Trivia Edit

  • Hirluin the Fair brought 300 men of Pinnath Gelin to defend Minas Tirith at the Siege of Minas Tirith.
