Darkening of Mirkwood
A small market town and commoning stopping point for travellers located to the east of The Shire.
It was the first stop for the companions upon leaving The Shire in 2944.
The Day of Embers is an annual festival first held in Brie in 2943. The festival is a week long celebration culminating in the Day of Embers itself. The origin of the festival is unclear but the townspeople have taken to the festival, partially because of the increase in tourism but mostly because of the exciting egg hunt which takes place in the Chetwood at the end of the festival.
The town square hosts The Prancing Pony inn, famous to travellers for its hospitality, particularly to Hobbits. Less well known is Oliphaunt and Castle, a tavern for the working man situated near the rear gate of the town.
