The 30,000 square miles given for the LotRO world are quite literally, the entire world as drafted up by J.R.R. Tolkien - from the northwestern tips of Eriador all the way down through Mordor in the southeastern corner.Actually accessible are only parts of that world, which are divided in zones much like WoW is. This is due to the fact that the game loosely follows the books, meaning areas such as southern Eriador simply weren't relevant in the books and thus are not accessible in the game.Also, the content releases are making their way towards Mordor much in the same way as the characters in the books did. They did Moria with the first expansion, and the Mirkwood with the second. More is not yet accessible, you'll only get to see that in upcoming expansions. Mordor itself will probably be the fifth or so.
