The Darkening Wild
Far to the south and east of the Lonely Mountain is the land known as Dorwinion, known primarily for the sought-after wines that come up the Redwater to Lake-town and from there, everywhere people can afford them. It exists in the vales of the Celduin, or River Running, along the western shore of the Sea of Rhun. It is also a land well-known for its gardens.
The people of Dorwinion are canny river-travelers, and presumably sail on the huge inland sea of Rhun. They must also trade with the people of Khand, known in the West variously as Easterlings, Wainriders and Variags.
