Councils or Groups
All of the information below is describing large scale faction interaction such as guilds and alliances. Feel free to add your own council/group if it consists of more than 2 factions. Keep in mind that alot of these are very outdated. It might be more helpful to check each of their respective wiki pages that can be found by just searching most of their names.
Dwarven House / Dwarven Council
This is an elite group of seven of the finest dwarven warriors across the server. The houses in the Dwarven House include the Ered Luin, Khazad-Dum, the City of Gundabad, Ered Mithrin, the Iron Hills, and the Orocarni. There is one Lord per region that comes when a Lord calls a council. All councils are held at Gundabad when it is rebuilt. The High King of the Council is Azaghal_79 (formerly known as squatch_thunder7). The lordship of the members of the council is undisputed. Each Lord was gifted with a ring of their Realm/City. The rings were forged and inscribed within the halls of the greatest realm of the Khazad, Moria.
The founding members consist of:
- Azaghal_79 (squatch_thunder7) - The appointed High King of the Council, ruler of the Blue Mountains, and Forger of the Dwarven Rings.
- Spoangitybob - Lord of the Dwarven Kingdom of Khazad-Dum and protector of the southern Misty Mountains.
- iwellner45 - Lord of Durin's City located at Mount Gundabad.
- ThunderSC (SpeedySC) - Lord of the Iron Hills and co-guardian of the icy north.
- aidansebastian - Lord of the Grey Mountains, co-guardian of the icy north, and inscriber of the Dwarven Rings.
The council has since appointed various other lords such as
- Thorin_the_King - King Under the Mountain.
- wille912_ - Ruler of the Red Mountains.
- LuckySilverStar - Ruler of Nogrod.
Council of the High-Elves
The 2nd king of the High-Elves, SinzPet, upon his rise to the throne created a council consisting of the most prestigious elves of the faction. The council acts as the king's advisors and representatives.Information about the High-Elves will not be updated on this page. You can read more about the High-Elves and their Government on the "Player/Faction/RolePlay- Wiki" if you're interested. Everything is up-to-date there.
- internet_miners - High King of Fangorn and Hand of the King to SinzPet, the High King of Lindon. He was one of the founding members and very influential with most other players on the server.
- SinzPet himself, another founding member, High King of the High Elves.
- Faelon (Formerly: Xenphir) and TheBlueTrickster, more Elven kin, were founding members and partake in the council as influential representatives of the Mirkwood kingdom.
- TheSmileBC (Formerly: Arantoer_II) - the third and last founding member.
The White Council later admitted three invaluable players as their latest members:
- squatch_thunder7, the first new member, Lord of all Dwarves, Co-founder of the Northern Alliance and ruler of Ered Luin.
- Hell_Metallicus, soon after, was graced into the Council as the Chieftan of the Rangers of the North and Co-founder of the Northern Alliance.
- Atanvarno, following these additions, King of Gondor, founder of the union of Arnor and Gondor.
Even at this moment the Council convenes to discuss trade, border troubles and incoming threats from treacherous neighbours. Their reach is nearly limitless as they can thwart even the deadliest of enemy plans. Their spheres of influence allies themselves closely to the most powerful of players, including most Dwarven lords and High Elves. Their contacts include the richest players on the server and the White Council itself has accomplished warriors of renown. They are ever vigil, always watching. Cross them and you may be forgiven, but never forgotten.There are rumors that the White Council has a secret location where they all meet, and it is said to be never found by anyone outside of the White Council. Some even say the location is not even in Middle-Earth. Others say they all communicate through Palentirs. Even we are unsure of the truth.
