Those brave and lucky explorers that survive the long dark of Moria look upon the East-gate and breathe easier. Beyond it sprawl enchanted waters, the Golden Wood, sunshine, and stars. If you manage to make it so far, the first question you may ask is how long has it been since youâ€™ve seen the sky?
LothlÃ³rien, the Golden Wood, is a blaze of light and color at the edge of the Black Pit of Moria. Even in this time of shadow and fear, the Celeborn, Galadriel, and their Silvan people keep it safe.
With this farthest gate of Khazad-dÃ»m in the hands of the Dwarves again, and a Stable-master well-stationed nearby, a degree of certainty and comfort can be had even in the Dwarf-cityâ€™s haunted delvings and bloody halls. But all is not sunlight and freedom, even here. Between the East-gate and the shining woods of the Elves, Orc-kind and Wargs hunt the Free Peoples and prepare war machines for a new battle to recapture the doorway to Moria.
This land, from Khazad-dÃ»m in the west to the woods of LothlÃ³rien in the east, brims with history and legend. These stones have seen bloody victories and heart-breaking defeats, profound beginnings and sad endings. This valley witnessed the arrival of Durin the Deathless in the earliest era of Middle-earth, as well as the flight of the Fellowship of the Ring not so long ago.
Now this land sees the tale of Moria go on through you. Lady Galadriel, Queen of LothlÃ³rien, has a mission in mind, and the Galadhrim, the Elves of LÃ³rien, call upon you to make it succeed.
