Rhûn, also known as The East and Eastlands in the Westron tongue, is a large region in the far eastern part of Middle-earth. It was the home and kingdom of the Easterlings in the Second and Third Ages. It had many different groups who ultimately fought together and were in Sauron's service. They seem to be based on Asian cultures.

Rhûn was feared and dreaded for its superbly effective fighting forces, nearly spelling the doom of Gondor and almost heralding Sauron's complete victory over the entirety of Middle-earth. (See the article entitled "Easterlings" for a more complete digest of their military structure.)

This map has been primaryly designed to play as Mordor (in the fortress) and Dwarves (in the camps). It will work with other factions but has been optimized for the above mentioned purpose.
