Admittidely I was wrong about the Haradrim. However, the downs in the article are redlinked, which makes it looks like, (at least in my mind), they are referring to a specific place in Rohan called "The Downs" (like the Barrow-downs). I am unaware of a place in Rohan specifically called that, and even when I looked in the Two Towers I only see refernces to them as a terrain feature and not a landmark a region is named for.[[User:Turiannerevarine|Turiannerevarine]] 12:13, 14 June 2021 (UTC)

:No problem. You are right that the downs are merely a terrain feature that is mentioned in the narrative and in the Index, but they are not mentioned as the Downs with a capital "D" and are not drawn at all on the Map of Rohan, Gondor and Mordor and not drawn on the General Map of Middle-earth. However they are in one of J.R.R. Tolkien's maps in the website of the Tolkien Estate. They are not the name of a region, but they and the East Wall of Rohan, which is mentioned in the narrative and which has its own article on Tolkien Gateway could be mentioned as part of the geography of Rohan. One could make a short page about the downs of Rohan with their approximate position and the action taking place there --[[User:Akhorahil|Akhorahil]] 15:39, 14 June 2021 (UTC)

::Thank you for bringing that to my attention. I might try my hand at making such an article soon. I'll try to be more careful about speculation and such things in the future. [[User:Turiannerevarine|Turiannerevarine]] 18:45, 14 June 2021 (UTC)
