It's not really in the 'far east of Middle-earth' is it? 'The far east of north-west Middle-earth' maybe.-- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  17:52, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

Perhaps "east of Rhovanion" or "east of Rhovanion and Gondor"? "The far east of north-west Middle-earth" is a bit confusing ;-) --Morgan 17:56, 9 January 2011 (UTC)
Is it just me, or doesn't "the little-known lands to the east of Middle-earth" make Rhûn into not being a part of Middle-earth? Shouldn't it be "the little-known lands in the east of Middle-earth"? --Morgan 21:10, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

What is Rhûn?

Ederchil, I could give you a thousand reasons why Rhun lies to the EAST of Mordor and Rhovanion and is not just the lands centering the sea of Rhun. Ive looked at the original Tolkien maps he made and Rhun extends as far north as the Northern Waste and as Far south as Khand. I can show you if youd like.

There's no clear border on the maps. And it's not a country, so it has no clear borders. While the absence of any named land directly east of Mordor and to Khand's north could mean it borders it, it's not clear. And no map gives a mention of Rhûn north of the Iron Hills. So, do source it. Source everything. --Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 21:06, 5 February 2013 (UTC) Look at it. It may not be above the iron hills but it sure is east of Mordor. Your correct, it's not a country, its a general land area. Just like Harad. It goes beyond the map's borders. And yes, I scourced it now. Unsigned comment by Carter938 (talk • contribs).
I'll give you "east of Mordor", but we can't be totally sure that it directly borders Khand. And all other borders are impossible to accurately describe as well. --Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 21:17, 5 February 2013 (UTC)
Your quite correct. Khand could be just as big as Rhun and Harad, but we dont know. I really wish Tolkien was alive today to expand upon these areas, or for Christopher Tolkien to write about it. Alas alas. By the way, why was the section in Easterlings called Portrayal in Adaptations taken down? If you go on the Haradrim page, it has the same thing. Carter938
Your section on Easterlings contained speculation, and lacked the proper layout. --Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 21:23, 5 February 2013 (UTC)
How so? Can you give me an example? And where do i find the guidelines for the proper layout? Carter938
