    Default Ruins of Arnor-A New campaign for TATW##2D ARTIST NEEDED##All unit Previews at the OP##

    We are in T.A. 1309. A few centuries ago, Arnor, the Northern Kingdom of the Dunedain in exile, was dissoluted and succeded by 3 states; Arthedain, Cardolan and Rhudaur, struggling to seize the power of the once might Kingdom of Arnor with civil wars and numerous battles.
    In T.A. 1300, the Witch-King, the Leader of the 9 Nazgul, ordered by Sauron himself, founded the Realm of Angmar, to the North of the 3 Kingdoms. Ally to Rhudaur, who was governed by Wicked Men of dubious origin, he was targeting in the end of the Dunedain of the North.
    Will his evil purpose be fullfilled, or he shall be overthrown by the Men of the West?

    Map Area:


    Factions
    Arthedain
    Cardolan

    Cardolan Unit Preview
    The Kingdom of Cardolan

    Genera Info
    Cardolan was founded in T.A. 861 by the Second Son of King Earendur of Arnor, in the same time that the Kingdoms of Arthedain Rhudaur were established from his brothers.
    It was the largest, in area and pupulation, of the Successor Kingdoms of Arnor, but it's folk was composed mostly by Middle Men, with a Dunedain Royality and many mixed people. It's most important cities were Tharbad and Tyrn Gorthad, a great River Port in the Shores of Gwathlo (greyflood) and a Citadel founded upon the graves of the Edainic people of Eriador in the previous Ages.
    Its land was mostly the plains of Minhiriath, whose forests were put on fire in the War of Sauron and Elves, back in the Dark Years, and its borders are the Rivers Gwathlo and Mitheithel to the East, Baranduin to te West and the Great East Road to the North.
    Militarily, it's terrain favored the training of Cavalry, but still its Princes were able to field strong infantrymen, and capable archers. It's the closest ally of Arthedain to the North, the other Faithful ex-Numenorean Kingdom of former Arnor, and fight against the Evil Men and the renegades of Rhudaur, who are supported by the newly established Realm of Angmar, lead by the fell Witch King.

    The whole project will be a memorial to our friend, Blackomur, as Koultouras already pointed out...

    Great! Though isn't the Orcs of the Misty Mountains faction supposed to be in?

    And I assume the FROME factions will be used?

    Great Tharbad Guardsmen are my favourites.

    But I hoped that they would look more "Arnorian" or "Numenorrean" even though the basic army constisted of Middle men. Maybe you change the helmet look...
    In addition I advise so mae the Mariners less look like Pelagir ones it's just too obvious.
    Otherwise I'm looking forward for Arthedain.

    1. They will be represented as strong rebels
    2. Yes, FRoME's Elves and Dunland will be in

    The Marines thing has been noted. They will have few units that 'll look like more Numenorean

    Arthedain is shaped by Squeaks, under my instructions

    Thanks for th ekind words, my friend

    We aren't close to release, we are just more organised and such than previously.
    The Swans onto teh Mariner's surcoats will be reconsidered, after all the swanfleet term came from Tharbad

    Τheir Northern outposts will be occupied by Angmar, and Moria will be Dwarven.
    This leaves 'em with very few settlements, and they'll get hammered by Dwarves and possibly Elves.

    Neverthless, Angmar and Necromancer factions will have Orcs as units
