The Trollshaws[1] (S. Pinnath Tereg[2]) were a series of forested hills in central Rhudaur. True to their name, the Pinnath Tereg were home to a large population of Trolls (mainly Stone-trolls), who provided no end of troubles for the local Hillmen and travelers on the Great East Road.

  1. "Shaws" is archaic or dialectal English for "a small wood; thicket; copse"
  2. The name Rhudaur is itself glossed as "Troll-shaws" in Parma Eldalamberon XVII, however this gloss does not accord with other sources. The Sindrin name Pinnath Tereg was created by the ICE authors, and is therefore non-canonical.
