Mordor is the realm of the Dark Lord Sauron, located in the southeast of Middle-Earth. Mordor was a barren wasteland riddled with fire and ash. A realm of evil, home to orcs, wargs, Uruk-Hai, Black Numenoreans, and other creatures of evil. Its two major landmarks are the volcanic Mount Doom and Sauron's tower, Barad-dur. Mordor is surrounded by three mountain ranges, making it a veritable fortress.
