The Lossarnach Captain spawns in Lossarnach Fortresses. They are easily recognizable by their missing helms, Red capes, and the coin in their hand. They allow you to command the forces of Lossarnach, provided that you have enough alignment and silver coins.

Upon hiring a unit from a Lossarnach captain, the player earns the achievement "Forlong's Axes"


Similar to most traders, Lossnarch captains will stay inside their fortresses. They will not attack unless provoked, even if the player or NPC approaching them has a negative Gondorian alignment. If attacked, they fight with a Lossnarch Battleaxe, dealing 8 (8hearts) per hit to an unarmoured foe.

If a Lossnarch captain is hurt, he will heal very quickly, as long as he's not in combat. In that regard he is similar to hired units.


At an alignment level of at least +150 with Gondor, the captain will you allow to hire units. The prices and alignment requirements are as follows:

Unit Cost (in silver coins) Alignment
Gondor Levyman 20 +150
Lossarnach Axeman 30 +200
Lossarnach Banner Bearer 50 +350
