"It is ever so with the issues that males start: there's a frost in Spring or a blight in summer time, they usually fail in their promise" (LotR III, p. 182).
Elendil and his heirs prepared kingdoms once they got here to Middle-earth from Numenor; Gondor within the South, and Arnor within the North. either have been reasonable and wealthy kingdoms firstly of the 3rd Age. at the present the heritage of the 2 kingdoms parted; the famous person of Gondor rose, yet that of Arnor fell into darkness. forces introduced the destruction of the North country. the 1st was once the waning of the Dunedain who dwelt in Arnor. the second one, and much higher 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 diminished, they have been nonetheless nice. The weather of Arnor was once light and the land used to be fertile and freed from enemies. For a couple 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 beaches of Lake Nennuial, and withdrew to the lesser fort urban of Fornost.
The nation of Arnor used to be doomed to "a frost in Spring, and a blight in summer time. " The heirs of the dominion might 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 endured; Rhudaur and Cardolan contested the ownership of the tower of Amon Sul and its Palantir. The watch on evil slept within the north; males became 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 no less than, the mountains have been far off. None gave their consciousness 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 grew to become conscious of the becoming evil within the mountains, yet Angmar was once nonetheless getting ready its energy. 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 used to be 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 was once raised and burned and the Dunedain have been compelled to escape westward. Cardolan used to be laid to waste. aid 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.
The land of Angmar is likely one of the grimmest areas 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 jap Misty Mountains. Little task is founded upon the barren simple among the fork within the mountains; the border defend 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 desire the security of the tunnels within the mountains. within the East the Witch King has no border safeguard; the mountains bar access into Angmar from that course, other than to those that comprehend the orcish tunnels.

For nine years they bided their time and built their army. When they came, they wanted to be sure they would win. Now suddenly a powerful avatar of Hastur walked this world again. A horde of things rolled out across Asia. Somewhere hidden inside the New Earth Government, arcane shapeshifters served the will of a powerful corporation. The church of the fish god was now an army. Like those they’d come to crush, the Migou were doomed if the Cults succeeded. Instead of joining forces with the NEG against a common foe, the Migou decided that they would continue – and win – their war against all enemies.
Supposedly, they are using some of the surviving Migou as experimental guinea pigs. The Esoteric Order also experiments with the various Human racial subtypes to determine if they have any influence on the development of Hybrids. For this reason, they have absorbed populations in sparsely populated areas throughout the North American northeast, portions of the European coast, the West Coast of Africa, and the South American east coast. It is also rumored that the EOD is perilously close to finding their lost city.
