Mirkwood is one of the locations in the game The Lord of the Rings: War in the North.
This ancient forest can be found east of the Misty Mountains and south of the Grey Mountains. Light is difficult to enter because of the environment's landscape, which makes it a very dark and dangerous place.
The Woodland Realm of the Elves and Legolas live here. Another prominent citizen of these lands is Radagast the Brown. However, most people believe that Radagast is constantly on the move. He tends to prefer the farthest edges of the forest which are freer from the dark forces attacking the lands.
The darkness acts as a shield for people and forces looking to engaged in dark activities. Orcs, spiders, and many other creatures frequent these lands.
