The Golden Easterlings are a great kingdom of Men, bound to the will of their god, the Dark Lord, and are ready to serve him in his war against the Free Peoples. They are the grandest of all the kingdoms in the east, and they are skilled in the art of fire. They are also in a trade partnership with their neighbours, the Dorwidhrim. They also are known for their golden armour, hence the name, "Golden Easterlings"

A new sunrise shall come for the Eastrons!

The Easterlings of Rhúdel are a fierce people, numerous and strong. Their hatred of the men of Gondor is not forgotten, and they desire the Westlands for their own, due to their great fertility and booty. The Dark Lord, their god, beckons; soon Gondor will be destroyed by their might. They look northward as well: their foes in Dale will not expand their greedy kingdom much longer. And should the Dorwidhrim turn their backs to Sauron, then they too will have to be destroyed.

AlignmentEdit

The Men of Rhúdel have only Mordor as friends, being neutral with most factions due to their distance from them. They are enemies with all Elves and most of the Mannish factions of Middle-earth.
