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 once 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 present the historical past of the 2 kingdoms parted; the superstar of Gondor rose, yet that of Arnor fell into darkness. forces introduced the destruction of the North nation. the 1st was once 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 strength of the Witch King for 6 lengthy centuries, a tribute to the energy and gear of the Dunedain of the North.

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 ahead of the land held any whisper of the shadow of Angmar. For purposes unknown the Dunedain deserted their capital of Annuminas upon the shorelines of Lake Nennuial, and withdrew to the lesser citadel urban of Fornost.

The country of Arnor used to be doomed to "a frost in Spring, and a blight in summer time. " The heirs of the dominion might 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 was once 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 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 a ways off. None gave their consciousness to the unpromising valley in a northern fork of the Misty Mountains.

The Witch King arose in Angmar throughout the realm of Malvegil of Arthedain, your time among T. A. 1272-1349. males grew to become conscious of the growing to be evil within the mountains, yet Angmar was once 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 was once 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 areas 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 headquartered upon the barren undeniable among the fork within the mountains; the border safeguard of fellows is determined within the rolling hills upon the sting of the low plateau. those males watch the lengthy border highway 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 path, other than to people who comprehend the orcish tunnels.

They used their abilities to secretly take over the project in the 1970s. Vodyanoy fed false intelligence to their handlers and systematically wiped out every record of their existence. There are numerous rumors that the conspiracy still exists, with agents spread across the world — even that they manipulate other governments into reproducing the original experiments to increase their numbers. The evidence doesn’t live up to the claims. Every self-identified “Vodyanoy” agent has proven to be a fraud.

When these points of contention brush up against the rules, it’s the Storyteller’s job to work with the players to resolve matters in a way that drives dramatic action forward, usually by making concessions to all interests at the table while adding new complications to explore. Krewe Politics No special rules force krewes to organize in a particular city. For the most part, every krewe wants unencumbered access to the things they claim ownership over and don’t want to get drawn into each other’s rivalries.

Sin-Eaters are often torn between the desire to expand the krewe and the strong individualistic streak that runs through their cultures. They get their power from personal relationships: with each other, their geists, and the ghosts around them. When a krewe grows, its members unearth new mystical secrets. They work together to grab more power over the living world, too. Members guarantee each other’s wealth and prestige.
