Here are the release notes for today's update: https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread.php?&postid=7312886#post7312886

There are new roving threats in Angmar, Forochel, Western Gondor, and the Misty Mountains that drop brands that can be traded for "unique rewards."Fixes to some quests/NPCs in S. Bree-fields, Archet, Ered Luin, Lone-lands, and a Moria instanceReflecting Pools for Central Gondor in Linhir and for West Gondor in the Court of the Prince in Dol AmrothA long list of Beorning updates/changesSome Pelargir updatesMy favorite release note: Several of the NPCs in Tur Morva were mistaking Beornings for Hobbits. They've been given some instructional charts and diagrams and should now be able to tell the difference. The hairy toes were throwing them off.

Here's the master list for the roving threat locations: https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread.php?563011-Roving-Threat-Master-Location-List&s=28cef2ff134fcf95915489ba411ac026

There are quests to kill roving threats in each of the areas and a deed to kill all the roving threats.  Each quest gives you brands (they go in your barter wallet) which can be turned in for essence-slotted pocket items, 1st age items, tapestries for your house, and a pond frog cosmetic pet.

I'll update when I find pictures of the new tapestries  :)

Here is a complete list of roving threat rewards: http://lotro-wiki.com/index.php/Roving_Threat_Quartermaster

No screenshots yet, but I'm speculating the at least five of the seven tapestries are the ones hanging in Elrond's library (scroll down for screenshots: https://www.lotro.com/en/forums/showthread.php?425577-Flags-in-Elrond-s-Library)

Here is the list of the five roving threat tapestry rewards and their possible Elrond's library counterparts.
Tapestry of the Great Dragon: Ancalagon the Black Tapestry of the White Tree: Tree of Gondor Tapestry of the Moon: moon+stars   Tapestry of the Ship-kings: Eärendil the Mariner tapestry (it could be a ship tapestry from Gondor instead)Tapestry of the Seven Stars: the seven stars of the House of Elendil   
The last two tapestries may be new.  The hover-text (from lotro wiki) for the Tapestry of Fear and Flame says it depicts "...The Witch King of Angmar and a Balrog engulfed in flame" and for the Tapestry of the Nine it says, "A tapestry depicting the Nine as they began their journey to Eriador in search of the One Ring."

Here's an updated list of roving threat locations and pics of the tapestries (the two new ones look great!): http://www.departmentofstrategery.com/lotro/guides/roving-threats-of-update-15-2/
