The Ettenmoors were a mountainous, wild, and untamed land that lay north of Rivendell. It was here that in T.A. 1975 the Witch-king of Angmar fled after his defeat in the Battle of Fornost. Chieftain Arador was slain by trolls in this area in 2930.
The first instance of troll-fells was devoid of a dash and was capitalized, "Trollfells": J.R.R. Tolkien wrote on a map: "Alter Entish Lands to [Trollfells > Bergrisland >] Ettenmoor". This is also the first mention of Ettenmoor(s) in the legendarium.
Portrayal in Adaptations
2007: The Lord of the Rings Online:
- The Ettenmoors is the region where player vs player play takes place. The land has three keeps (Lugazag, Tirith Rhaw and Tol Ascarnen), Isendeep Mine and Grimwood Lumber Camp that can be controlled by either the forces of Angmar or the Free Peoples of Middle-earth.
