High Elves and Dunedain
Founded in the Second Age, and governed by Elrond, Rivendell is chief of the existing Elven Realms. Rivendell is a bastion of light in a world that has dwelt too long under Sauron's shadow.
On the coast of the Great Sea, lie the Grey Havens. It is from here that the Elves sail away into the West, seeking to set foot once more upon Valinor's white shores.
After the fall of Arthedain and his kingdom of Arnor, a remnant of the northern Dúnedain became the Rangers of the North, doing what they could to keep the peace in the near-empty lands of their Fathers. The surviving Dúnedain population of Arnor retreated to the Angle south of Rivendell, while smaller populations made isolated settlements in far western Eriador.
