The Lord of the Rings Minecraft Mod Wiki

The Taurethrim chieftain is the hiring NPC of the Taurethrim of the Far Harad Jungle. They are recognizable from regular Taurethrim NPCs by the coin in their hand and the chieftain helmet they wear.


They spawn in Taurethrim Chieftain Temples which can be found in Taurethrim villages in the Far Harad Jungle. They will spawn wearing full armour, with a chieftain helmet on and a silver coin in their hands.


Like all hiring NPCs, they will not attack unless provoked and stay out of fights. When attacked they will defend themselves with a club.


For at least +200 Taurethrim alignment he will allow you to buy troops. As your alignment goes up with the Taurethrim, the hiring costs decrease.

Upon hiring a unit from a chieftain, the player earns the achievement "Obsidian Conquerer".

  • A new empire is rising. Will you lead us to victory?
  • They burn our trees and steal our Mûmakil. But now, Person, now is the time for revenge.

  • Go and kill all the Snake-Men in the North, and then maybe you can buy my warriors.
  • Pathetic. Not even a mark on your face. You cannot lead our warriors.
  • I see no reason to give my warriors to a weakling like you.
