The Land of the Sun during the Second Age

The Land of the Sun, Sun-Lands, or Burnt Land of the Sun, was an empty land east of Middle-earth where the sun rose at dawn. Nothing is known of its geography except that there was a curve-shaped mountain range called the Wall of the Sun that corresponds to the Pelóri, the Mountains of Aman.

History

The location of the Land of the Sun in the world of Arda

In the Ambarkanta it is called the Dark Land of the Sun. The Númenóreans may have visited it on their sea journeys into the far east of Arda, in the middle of the Second Age, since in the Akallabêth of The Silmarilion it is mentioned that they saw even the Gates of Morning in the east.

It has been speculated that the New Lands mentioned at the end of the Akallabêth may, in fact, have been a remade version of this land and the Dark Land (Hyarmenor).[1]

Portrayal in adaptations

In the game Middle Earth Role Play by Iron Crown Enterprises, a Sindarin name for the land—Romenor (Easternesse)—is given, although it does not appear in any of Tolkien's writings. Using proper grammar in Sindarin, the name would be Romennor, as opposed to the Quenya Rómenórë.
