The Lord of the Rings Minecraft Mod Wiki

The Nomad Archers are Nomad Guards equipped with a Bow of Harad instead of melee weapons to attack enemy NPCs and players at range with arrows. Although they live in the desert with deadly scorpions, they do not use poison arrows like the Orcs.


The Nomad Archers may be encountered in every biome where the regular Nomad Guard naturally spawns but with a lower spawn-rate. Like the Nomad Guard, a Nomad Archer can sometimes ride a Camel.


The Nomad Archer attacks all the NPCs (except civilians) of the mortal/enemy factions and all players negatively aligned with Near Harad. Otherwise, they question themselves concerning the existence of the universe and hunt any desert scorpions who dare to annoy them.


The Nomad Archers can be hired with a Nomad Chieftain in the Nomad Settlement. The foot soldier version costs +200 Alignment and 80 to 20 silver Coins. For +300 Alignment and more money you can hire them riding a Camel.

  • Back away from the wares!
  • How dare you show your face like this!
  • The trade is off, but you will pay!

  • The price for your crime is your life!
  • Such lack of decency! You are no better than the bandits!
  • I hope the Sun burns you alive!
  • I hope your bedroll will be full of scorpions!
  • Even if you survive, the desert always claims her price!
  • May the vultures feast on your corpse!
  • The Great Serpent shall not forgive you, Person!
  • We are trained to kill thieves. You'll be no trouble at all!
  • Just you wait, northerner. We are coming with more than you can prepare for!
  • You think you can beat us? We were raised by the desert herself!
  • Our endurance will long outlast yours, rat!
  • I will chase you across the desert if I have to!
  • I don't need water to drown you. I will use your blood!
  • Now, how did those incompetent soldiers let you pass the borders of Harad?
  • Let me introduce you to the nomadic way of torture!
  • You can't honestly think you can beat us desert-conquerors!


  • For Harad!
  • Stay away, Northlings!
  • No Northling filth will harm our trade!
  • What are we guarding, exactly, Person?
  • As you command, Person.
  • As you command, my chief.

  • The Sun shall scorch the Northlings!
  • The serpent strangles the tree...
  • I guard our caravan with my life, Person.
  • Oh, I should love to be paid better.
  • Death to the enemies of the trade!
  • Northerners are worse even than scorpions!
  • I shall stand guard, if I must.
  • We'll keep your enemies away.
  • Northlings begone!
  • The trade must continue.
  • I'll keep the thieves out, Person.
  • Nobody gets past us.
  • That's it for the Aphûr-lâi.

  • I never break my guard, Person.
