BACKGROUND

"It is ever so with the issues that males start: there's a frost in Spring or a blight in summer season, and so they fail in their promise" (LotR III, p. 182).

Elendil and his heirs prepared kingdoms after they got here to Middle-earth from Numenor; Gondor within the South, and Arnor within the North. either have been reasonable and filthy rich kingdoms firstly of the 3rd Age. at the moment the historical past of the 2 kingdoms parted; the big name of Gondor rose, yet that of Arnor fell into darkness. forces introduced the destruction of the North nation. the 1st used to be the waning of the Dunedain who dwelt in Arnor. the second one, and much better was once the shadow that got here from the land of Angmar. the lads of Arnor withstood the evil energy of the Witch King for 6 lengthy centuries, a tribute to the power and gear of the Dunedain of the North.

Arnor had suffered relatively little within the conflict opposed to Sauron on the end of the second one Age, and the dominion must have prospered. even if the numbers of the Dunedain were lowered, they have been nonetheless nice. The weather of Arnor used to be light and the land used to be fertile and freed from enemies. For a number of hundred years concerns went good, however the air of Eriador appeared unwholesome for the descendants of Numenor. Arnor fell into decline lengthy prior to the land held any whisper of the shadow of Angmar. For purposes unknown the Dunedain deserted their capital of Annuminas upon the seashores of Lake Nennuial, and withdrew to the lesser castle urban of Fornost.

The state of Arnor was once doomed to "a frost in Spring, and a blight in summer time. " The heirs of the dominion may possibly now not agree at the succession to the throne of Arnor within the 9th century of the 3rd Age. In T. A. 861 the energy of the northern realm used to be divided into 3 kingdoms: Cardolan, Rhudaur, and Arthedain. The quarreling persisted; Rhudaur and Cardolan contested the ownership of the tower of Amon Sul and its Palantir. The watch on evil slept within the north; males grew to become inwards and anxious themselves with their very own affairs. The rumours of evil multiplying within the mountains didn't curiosity them; for Arthedain and Cardolan a minimum of, the mountains have been far off. None gave their recognition to the unpromising valley in a northern fork of the Misty Mountains.

The Witch King arose in Angmar in the course of the realm of Malvegil of Arthedain, it slow among T. A. 1272-1349. males turned conscious of the turning out to be evil within the mountains, yet Angmar used to be nonetheless getting ready its strength. No attacks at the Dunedain got here until eventually Argeleb, the son of Malvegil, assumed the throne.

The subsequent sixty years have been darkish ones for the Dunedain of the North. The Dunedain of Rhudaur have been pushed out by way of evil hillmen in league with Angmar and Argeleb was once slain in conflict. jointly Arthedain and Cardolan held the elements Hills opposed to Angmar. In 1409 T. A. the Witch King of Angmar published his deadliest attack. Amon Sul used to be raised and burned and the Dunedain have been compelled to escape westward. Cardolan used to be laid to waste. support got here to the Dunedain from the Elves of the gray Havens, Rivendell, and Lorien. The armies of Angmar have been repelled from Fornost and the North Downs, and compelled to withdraw to Angmar. The shadow of the North used to be contained for a time.

ANGMAR

The land of Angmar is without doubt one of the grimmest locations in all of Middle-earth. it isn't black and twisted like Mordor, yet heartbreakingly chilly and barren. It lies in a northern fork within the Western Misty Mountains, and within the japanese Misty Mountains. Little task is based upon the barren undeniable among the fork within the mountains; the border safeguard of guys is determined within the rolling hills upon the sting of the low plateau. those males watch the lengthy border street that runs from Carn Dûm to the southern tip of Angmar. The orcs want the security of the tunnels within the mountains. within the East the Witch King has no border shield; the mountains bar access into Angmar from that path, other than to those that comprehend the orcish tunnels.

ABSEILING If a character needs to descend a sheer surface quickly, he can attempt abseiling as opposed to climbing down. Abseiling requires climbing gear, a drop harness, or at least a good, stout line, and requires a Challenging (+0) Acrobatics Test. With one Degree of Success, the character descends at a rate of 10 metres per Round, plus an additional metre for every additional Degree of Success. With one Degree of Failure, the descent rate is reduced to 5 metres per Round. Failure by two or more degrees requires the character to make a Challenging (+0) Strength Test or lose his grip—and if he is not wearing a drop harness or otherwise secured, he falls.

Some come from the savage worlds of the Koronus Expanse such as Naduesh and Vaporius. Others hail from nomad or heretical clans such as the Meratech Pirate Clans that waged war against the Calixis Sector and were exterminated for their pains many centuries ago. Many of the outlander clans that populate these regions hold that they have survived because they learned to honour the Ruinous Powers, firmly believing that their sacrifices to the gods bring bounty into their otherwise barren existence. Powerful psyker-dynasties dominate some of these groups, and others claim to be parties to daemonic pacts forged by their ancestors when the Emperor still walked among the living.

Dealing with renegades is always a risky business as good relations with one group won’t extend protection from all of them. Individual renegades sometimes slip into Imperium space to pursue their trade, but they find it a dangerous place to live. If caught and identified, they are tortured and executed by the Inquisition with no hope of mercy. Memory blocks and synaptic tampering are used by some groups (particularly the heretic Vaol Clans of the Drusus Marches Periphery) to protect their operatives—or, more accurately, the friends and loved ones they would put at risk if captured.
