The Westlands were the known lands between the shores of Lindon in the west and the Sea of Rhûnaer in the east; and the Bay of Forochel, the Grey Mountains, and the Iron Hills to the north and the Bay of Umbar, Harondor, and Mordor to the south. The Westlands were a cultural subcontinent affected deeply by the Eldar and Dúnadan Realms and cultures. Most of it’s inhabitants were Middle-men along with minor realms of lesser Elves (mostly Sindar and Nandor) and a few remnants of the Númenóreans, High-Elves, Dwarves and Hobbits. The common speech of the Westlands was known as the Westron.
