Photo Comparison: Sights of Bree

Bree is a bustling city, full of inhabitants going this way and that. There are a lot of sights to behold, from wattle and daub buildings to an elaborate fountain.

Architecture

There are a few different styles of architecture in Bree. Besides stone the next most prevalent is wattle and daub. It’s a cheap and quick method for crafting buildings, as well as a iconic image of the Middle Ages.

Fountain

From a pretty early point in the game this was my favorite spot when leveling. The crafters may have moved around, from this hall to that, I always came back to work on my crafting. And what better place to put a grand fountain than in front of a hall of crafters?

Carts

Commerce is an important part of any large city of Middle-Earth and Bree is no exception. The ability to travel with goods to sell or supplies to delivery often requires the use of a cart. Without them, patron’s of the Prancing Pony may not get their ale in a timely fashion!

    The town of Leavenworth here in Washington State always reminds me of Bree (or the other way around, I suppose), as it is a tourist town made nearly exclusively of this kind of architecture. Keeps a Bavarian look and feel throughout the year… lots of festivals and whatnot there.

    Good pics! I sort of miss not visiting the earlier areas now that I’m at the end-game. Bree has just the right feel to it I think.

    Maybe Michigan is the lost site of Breeland! Mackinack is certainly a good candidate for the Trestlespan, and the lakes in Brandy Hills would be not unlike Houghton and Higgins lakes. Ah but then you’d have Flint and Detroit (where I’m from) which are more.. well.. Mordor, frankly :)
