Imladris or Rivendell in the Common Speech contains the Last Homely House West of the Mountains and East of the Sea. It is the home of Elrond Half-elven and a last refuge of the Eldar.

Its website contains copies of all the in-game culture helpfiles as well as much other information and lore for getting started.

Imladris is grouped with Arnor and Yfelwydan, all +ruled by Ting and Ama.

The Valley

Imladris is a valley found along the southern branch of the Bruinen beyond the Edge of the Wild in Eriador. It is a lush, fertile valley of dense forests and wide open meadows amid the harsh, broken lands of the moors and foothills of the Misty Mountains to the east The valley's floor lies far below the moors at the base of steep cliffs. The lands beyond are reached only by narrow paths and stairs carved out of the cliffs. A waterfall at the west end of the valley plunges downward hundreds of feet as the noisy Bruinen contines on toward its meeting with the Mitheithel.

A narrow stone bridge without parapet crosses the river. On the north shore, stairs run up the embankment to the lawn and the House of the Master of Rivendell.

The House of Elrond

That house was, as Bilbo had long ago reported, 'a perfect house, whether you like food or sleep or story-telling or singing, or just sitting and thinking best, or a pleasant mixture of them all'. Merely to be there was a cure for weariness, fear, and sadness.

--Book II, Chapter I, Many Meetings

There are Noldor escaped from the destruction of Eregion, Sindar who are refugees from Beleriand as well as Silvan who have ventured west from the Vale of Anduin (or perhaps are some of the last of the Green-elves of Ossiriand).
