Neither [Sam] nor Frodo knew anything of the great slave-worked fields away south in this wide realm, beyond the fumes of the Mountain by the dark sad waters of Lake Núrnen[.]

The Return of the King, The Land of Shadow

Slaves of Nurn are farming NPCs found throughout Nurn. They tend their wheat farms in small groups of three to five. They are easily recognizable by the hoe they hold in one hand. Although they are technically part of the Mordor faction, good NPC's won't attack them.

As of Public Beta 29 there are female slaves.


A group of slaves on a Nurn farm.


They are only sold by Orc slavers. Orc slavers can only be found on their towers. You need at least +200 Mordor alignment and 40 silver coins to buy a slave, otherwise, the slave trader will just laugh at you or utter an insult.


Interacting with a slave.

After having bought one, your submissive "possession" follows you around (also through fast-travelling), calling you "Master" until you decide to interact with it by right-clicking. You can talk to it and you can also dismiss it. So, the best use for it, is to seek a suitable place to start a new farm. Rabbits will also not try to eat crops guarded by slaves.



Sereral slaves of Nurn are working on a farm.

They work similarly to other farmhands. They will help you sow and harvest crops if you give them the seeds. For more information, please check the farmhands page.


They have been known to attack evil aligned players if attacked, and others will join in the call. However, this appears to only be for the non-hirable units.

Slaves are able to be killed by Evil players, but not by Good players. If an evil player kills one of these slaves, their alignment will not be affected. Even hired slaves can be killed, but not by their master.

However, the desertion of slaves has been implemented in the mod, so should your Mordor alignment ever fall under +200, you will get this message: Your hired unit Húrin, the Slave of Nurn has deserted.
