BACKGROUND

"It is ever so with the issues that males commence: 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 after they got here to Middle-earth from Numenor; Gondor within the South, and Arnor within the North. either have been reasonable and wealthy kingdoms in the beginning of the 3rd Age. at the present the heritage of the 2 kingdoms parted; the megastar of Gondor rose, yet that of Arnor fell into darkness. forces introduced the destruction of the North country. 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 boys of Arnor withstood the evil energy of the Witch King for 6 lengthy centuries, a tribute to the energy and tool of the Dunedain of the North.

Arnor had suffered relatively little within the battle opposed to Sauron on the end of the second one Age, and the dominion must have prospered. even though the numbers of the Dunedain were diminished, they have been nonetheless nice. The weather of Arnor used to be gentle 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 sooner than 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 castle urban of Fornost.

The nation of Arnor was once 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 power 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 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 not less than, 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 through the realm of Malvegil of Arthedain, your time among T. A. 1272-1349. males turned conscious of the starting to be evil within the mountains, yet Angmar used to be nonetheless getting ready its strength. No attacks at the Dunedain got here till 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 used to be 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 was once contained for a time.

ANGMAR

The land of Angmar is without doubt one of the grimmest locations in all of Middle-earth. it's not 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 job is founded upon the barren simple among the fork within the mountains; the border shield of fellows 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 protect; the mountains bar access into Angmar from that course, other than to people who understand the orcish tunnels.

Sample text

To these Space Marines, the text represents a divine mandate that instructs them in every phase of their existence. When preparing for battle, the sacred text must be appropriately interpreted, but its wisdom must never be questioned. Many of the Chapter’s commanders use individual subsections to identify critical stages within every conflict. These individuals carefully identify the most relevant portions as they prepare for and command a battle, immediately and definitively using the most appropriate responses to any numerical or strategic shifts in a given battle, such that the army’s forces constantly adjust their strategic responses as the tactical situation changes.

Apothecaries are also always kept close at hand to recover the progenoid glands of any fallen Battle-Brother, so that the gene-seed is preserved far more often than is typically expected. PHILOSOPHY The most central tenet of the Red Scorpions Chapter’s belief system is a focus on purity. All other concepts are secondary. To maintain their purity—in mind, body, and spirit—the Chapter’s Battle-Brothers accept unquestionably extreme measures as a necessary part of their training regimen. It is their shared belief that only by undertaking such strenuous measures can they hope to identify and eliminate even the smallest taint of imperfection or contamination in those they encounter from without the Chapter.

Further, their physical enhancements enable them to survive acts of penance that would kill a mere mortal. Few others are physically capable of maintaining a lifestyle that adheres to the high standards $' set by these Space Marines. As other Space Marines seldom follow the tenets of the Imperial Cult, there are few who willingly embrace such a lifestyle. This combination has led to the Chapter’s Battle-Brothers having very little respect for other Imperial forces. Even during briefings and planning sessions, a Red Scorpions officer might question the judgement of those outside his Chapter, as their lack of purity could easily beget treachery and heresy.
