Legends of Middle Earth
Each one of you knows about the stories of Middle-Earth, the Awakening of the Races, the War against Melkor, the Creation of the Rings of Power, the One, the Three, the Seven, and the Nine. The Downfall of Númenor and the War of the Last Alliance, about the Major events of the Third Age, such as the journey of Bilbo and Thorin’s Company towards Erebor, and about Frodo, Sam and the Fellowship of the Ring. When the remainder of the elves left Middle-Earth, answering the call of the Great Sea, to return to Valinor, the Undying Lands, A new age had started; The Dominion of Men, but Middle-Earth did not cease to exist, and so we’ve arrived at the beginning of a new Legend.
Our story does not start in the Shire, but in Valinor. This is the story of a young elf named Aeross, whose parents had met in the Grey Havens while waiting for the last ships to sail across the Belegaer. Aeross was born on Wedmath 6th, in F.o.A. 10, and yet has to grow wiser like the elders of his kin.
He grew up with the legendary stories of Middle-Earth, of it’s heroes and villains, such as Gandalf the Grey, Legolas Greenleaf, Galadriel Arafinwë, Elrond Peredhel and so forth. He was fascinated by these stories, but wondered what would happen if a new Shadow would arise in Middle-Earth, and the Elves of the West would not be present to aid their people in such times. The Valar neglected the fact that this was a possibility, yet they allowed Aeross to train with bow and sword, learning to master combat tactics from an early age. For many years they trained, yet Middle-Earth remained at peace for hundreds of years after the Fall of the Dark Tower.
But the Valar’s ignorance of Middle-Earth’s situation soon turned into an opportunity for a new Shadow to take shape. In the Mountains of Mordor, A Black Uruk lived, formerly exiled by Sauron in the Late Third Age, because he defied Sauron’s orders. He was smarter, stronger, and taller than the other Orcs and Uruks alike, and on top of that he possessed the ability to lead the Spawn of Mordor properly, they were more inclined to listen to his orders than Sauron’s, His name is Dugarod Durburzum, and he aims to bring chaos and shadow back into the heart of Middle-Earth, but after the Destruction of the One, the Legions of Mordor were scattered and destroyed. The Reunited Kingdom of Gondor and Arnor possessed the dominion over the majority of the former Orc factions, so Dugarod knew he needed patience, before putting his plan into place.
During the Reign of High King Elessar, Middle-Earth was at peace, but when he gave up his life to pass the reign to his son, Eldarion, things started to change. Most of the humans that were born in this age had not experienced the War of the Ring, and had not ever truly faced orcs, trolls, wargs and goblins ever before. Some even thought that the story was made up, in order to ensure the children behaved properly, They even played made up battles against orcs with wooden swords and masks.
The peace lasted for around 180 years, however, but this would all change when he aimed to pass the throne to his oldest son, Aragorn III, his other sons were given appropriate titles as well. his second son, Heledir, was appointed as Warden of Arnor, his third son, Celebren, was appointed Warden of Harad. But when their father had died in F.o.A. 300, their older brother demanded that they return the dominance of their regions to himself. The brothers however refused this order and ignited a civil war against him.
At least 10 years after the spark of the revolt, another city, named Tenningrad, ruled by Lord Lucas I Tennin, rose in revolt as well. He was the grandson of one of Eldarion’s childhood friends, and before his death, an advisor of the Royal House of Telcontar. Lucas and his son, Lucas the second, fought many battles against the warring sons of Eldarion, but Lucas I died in one of these battles. Not everything was lost, because Lucas I had passed his teachings to his son Lucas II, and with that came his skill in strategy and leadership. After 11 years of civil war, he defeated the three sons of Eldarion and took the Throne of Men for himself. But in the aftermath of this conflict, Gondor lost the dominion of Harad and Rhûdel, and Arnor had separated itself from the Reunited Kingdom, becoming an independent realm. And this gave the opportunity to Dugarod’s legions, to prepare their Road to War once more.
Dugarod had 4 sons, whom he wanted to each control one of the Orcish dominions in Middle-Earth, but all these realms were under the possession of hostile powers, So he was planned to take these realms through warfare, For this he called upon the old allies of Mordor, Harad and Rhûdel, but only Harad was able to be swayed to aid him in this quest, for Alatar had taken leadership of the Eastern Khaganate after Gondor lost its power there.
So Dugarod assembled a plan with the Haradrim that was intended to surprise the men of Gondor, Rohan and Arnor simultaneously, Pallando the Blue had fallen to the Shadow and took control of the Haradric regions in name of Mordor, Together they were able to create a large cloud of smoke, in order to more effectively shield their plans from the eyes of the Free Peoples, but the cloud of shade turned out to be much larger than initially expected.
Large regions of Middle-Earth were darkened during these days, and the Free Realms knew that a new Shadow was arising, but did not know from whence it came. The time that was required to let this cover of darkness pass was used by Dugarod to launch an assault on the Kingdom of Gondor, who had posted garrisons at Amon Lanc, the Riders of Rohan, that was guarding the Tower of Orthanc, and the Kingdom of Arnor, which guarded the former Kingdom of Angmar and Gundabad, they were able to raze down much of the rebuilding process that the Dúnedain had started, and since they were still weakened by the civil war this objective would be much easier to obtain. and obtained they did, after 50 years, Dugarod’s first goals were achieved. Middle-Earth was once again on the Road to War.
During these years, Aeross began to sense a great danger arising once again, and he asked the Valar what the state of events in Middle-Earth was, Manwë answered that the continent was being covered in darkness once again, and that when the shade had passed, The Kingdom of Arnor was brought to ruin again.. And as such Aeross requested the permission to leave Valinor, and they gave it, at the notion that Valinor would be fenced against him and his followers, Despite this warning, many came to his call and were prepared to bear arms, heralding their coming to Middle-Earth once again, And to Middle-Earth they came at last in F.o.A. 410, Aeross was joined by thousands of Elves in this journey, who willingly came to his call, And as expected. they landed in the still mostly intact Grey Havens of Lindon.
And this is where you will write your story, your very own legend.
We have a position system, the roles in each position can deverce between factions.
A Lively Progression
Position 0: You're the most basic of a faction's people. An average citizen, a trader or a farmer, perhaps you serve in a militia for your liege. Maybe you're a soldier or even a sergeant in the military.
Position 1: You're kinda higher up in the food chain round' town. You probably got the ear of a local politician or noble who you converse with, you aren't a true noble yourself, but you're a bit more well off compared to someone below you. You might be a Lieutenant in the military who handle's their own group of soldiers, maybe you have the honor of even commanding a small outpost.
Position 2: So you got to be honored as becoming a noble? Maybe you're already a noble but are finally seen as such. You're a captain in the military, someone who matters. You no longer just command a group of soldier, you get to command a couple small groups of soldiers. At this point you have more then just some small outpost, you have something like a small base. You're a politician or statesmen who helps run the government from the domestic side.
Position 3: You are in a position where you don't directly do stuff with the average joe all the time. You are recognized as a Sir of the realm in the military, you're a count or earl and are talked to in such a matter that deserves someone to be kneeling infront of you. You are apart of the more command part of the military, most likely managing more then one base in your position. A statesmen who controls an entire village or maybe even town.
Position 4: You have power over the places that aren't just towns, you control cities. You're high enough in the military that you are apart of grand parades, you manage an entire region's military control, or you're a governor. Maybe you're on the highly esteemed nobles who dine with the King
Position 5: You can have someone executed if you want. You're Royalty or the highest statesmen. You're in the King's War Room
Faction leader: So you are in control of an intire faction, you have come so far by: overtrowning the old leader in a fight/war, your choosen by your faction, or choosen by the old leader as his/her sucsesor. But don't take your role lightly, your responsible for the well being of your faction.
Every person has a house, well unless you choose you don't want to start with a home and some facilities, then that's fine too.
Position 0: You don't really have anything fancy, maybe you've got a decent amount of land if you're a farmer, but that's your income and infrastructure to make money. Maybe a couple rooms in your house at most, a barn or 2 and some crops too depending. If you're a sergeant or soldier don't expect a whole lot, but as a player you have the ammenities of having a somewhat nicer barracks that has rooms with only a few bunks and some storage, as a sergeant you sleep in your own room.
Position 1: Not a plantation with walls and all, but you've got a bit more comfortable of a house. You're probably farming solely alcoholic produce or other feel good stuff. Or you produce food but at a larger amount. And you finally get your own room in the Military that isn't a small little quarters. A bit larger, with a desk, bed and table, some more storage too. You finally get your own command in an outpost or observation post.
Position 3: So you get a plantation, maybe even an estate. You get a nice building in a town or village as the leader of it. You control your own base of operations, with it's own sizeable force, and have influence in affairs of the military, as little as it is. You're also a decently respected noble.
Position 4: A really nice estate. Practical control over a good chunk of land, and you also have "control" over multiple military bases, though really only your hq.
Position 5: You live in the capital of your region, in your own keep or palace. And you control a lot as Royalty or a high military rank.
Faction leader: You live in the royal palace in the capital city of your faction
You can advance in your rank with quests and reputation by your ruler and faction. Doing build tasks for the rulers will help you on as well.
