  • Mae govannen, all.

    I shall begin with an explanation. Now, the current map of Middle-earth is based on Karen Wynn Forstand's Atlas of Middle-earth, a very worthy piece of cartography. However, if we take Tolkien's Middle-earth as the Earth of the past (which the professor himself did), there would be several hundred large and small islands (representing the ancient Japanese and Indonesian landmasses) off the coasts of the Uttermost East part of Rhûn. Now, there are several other places that would be affected by this, but those shall wait for a later time.

    Eastern Isles -
    Islander Banner (large)

    A faction of islander clans living on the isles east of Rhûn, these peoples are somewhat hostile to their immediate continental neighbors, a reciprocated feeling. They have no ties to the Western half of Middle-earth, and only faint tales of Sauron, Gondor, and the West-elves have come to them down through the years; the only Elves they know of are the Avari, the Dark-elves of the East, and while they have no quarrel with them, they are not on friendly terms either.


    Biomes -

    Tyl Rhûnen - The main climate of the land, this is a lightly forested biome, including cedars, pines, oak, maple, and cherry-trees. The grass is a lush green, similar to the Cloud Forests, and several forms of flower grow here.

    Tyl Rhûnen Forest - A thickly forested variant of the primary biome, creating a tangle of undergrowth that is difficult to manage. It has a thick white fog effect.

    Tyl Rhûnen Mountains - Bare rocky heights, tall and grey, with the occasional tree growing up them. This biome is far-reaching and often forms chains, enclosing the other biomes into valleys and small plains.

    NPCs -

    Islander - Simple farmers, tradesmen, and smiths, living in simple villages scattered throughout the land. They are predominantly dark-haired, and run when attacked. If pursued, or cornered, they will use small daggers or kama to defend themselves.

    Islander Warrior - Soldiers of the Tyl Rhûnen, armed with swords, long spears, weapons called kama, and clad in hardened leather armor. Of these weapons, the spear is most common. Unlike other nations, these do not carry shields.

    Islander Noble - Archers of noble birth, armed with swords and assymetrical recurve bows, and armored with hardened leather armor. They wear dull red capes, in addition to the armor.

    Islander Banner-bearer - Soldiers bearing the banners of their clans, and armed with swords.

    Islander Shogun - The hiring unit of the islanders, armed for self-defense with a weapon called a tessen, and clad in hardened leather armor. They also wear a cape with the emblem of the isles upon it.

    Structures -

    Islander House - A small house built of wood and thatched with dry reeds.

    Islander Castle - A wooden fortress, commonly found in the mountains and with villages, filled with soldiers.

    Islander Shrine - A small shrine built of wood and stone, found in the mountains and forests.

    Islander Village - A grouping of houses and fields, only found in the Tyl Rhûnen biome.

    Items -
    Islander Sword

    Islander Sword - A long curved weapon, with high damage but poor durability. It is crafted in the same manner as other swords, with iron and sticks.

    Islander Dagger - A short, straight blade, used for self-defense by peasants. It has good damage, but low durability, and is crafted in the same manner as
    Islander Dagger
    other daggers.

    Islander Longspear - A long straight-bladed spear, used as the primary weapon of the Tyl Rhûnen. It is crafted as other pikes and longspears are. It has good damage, and unlike other Tyl Rhûnen weapons, good durability.

    Islander Bow - A long assymetrical recurve bow. It has good range and damage, as well as a comfortable durability.

    Islander Bow
    Kama - Small scythe-like weapons, used as both weapons and hoes, with
    Islander Longspear
    poor damage but moderate durability. It is crafted in the same manner as an axe.

    Tessen - The weapons used exclusively by Shoguns, small war-fans made of metal. They have excellent damage, and moderately good durability. However, they have a small range; less than that of a dagger.

    Blocks -
    Islander Tessen

    Tyl Rhûnen's peoples have a variety of carved wooden blocks and pillars available to them, in the same manner as Rohan does. They also have wooden bars, similar to Elven Wood-bars, in lieu of metal ones.

    • Hmmmm very interesting I have always thought that the east needs more features off the coast. Yes I know that rhun will be improved in the future. If you would like I could draw a map of the isles off the coast of rhun.

      As for food ideas, I believe rice would be the staple ingredient used. Allies, they would have little of, and for enemies, they would most likely be moderately hostile to their immediate continental neighbors.

    • I hope nobody minds that I drew a map of the isles. This is just my view of the eastern isles.

    • I would see the islands farther east, where the west most island is still east of that point on Rhun.

      Also, what are the relations of these guys and the 4 Dwarven clans of the East, they know the avari, so they must know the Red Dwarves right?

    • They would probably be neutral with the Red Dwarves.

    • How would the Orcs act against these Islanders if they ever met in battle?

    • The Orcs and Islanders are neutral, so were they to meet in battle, they would be somewhat evenly matched, with the Islanders having a slight advantage: like Orcs, they have terrible armor, but unlike Orcs, they have high-damage weapons.

      No, I have not been able to fix my Minecraft as of yet.

      Note that I edited the mainland of rhun to make the islands fit into the continent more. If I undid my edits on the mainland half of the islands would be east of the point of rhun

    • Main suggestion:

      Islander Sword - A long curved weapon

      That sword is not curved, do something closer to the high-elf's original sword

      Main suggestion:

      Kama - Small scythe-like weapons, used as both weapons and hoes, with poor damage but moderate durability. It is crafted in the same manner as an axe.

      provide an image please

      Main suggestion (sumarized):

      tribes

      don't carry shields

      islands

      run, don't typically fight

      based on this i would assume they would use flint or stone weapons, not iron. unless there is a volcano on some islands and they could then use obsidian shards i suggest the use of flint, as well as a recipe for it.


      Main suggestion:

      [Islander Lord]: Earn +1000 alignment with the Islanders of Tyl Rhûnen.

      i doubt that they would have lords being tribes, i propose either it being chief with 100 being warrior, or the 1000 being legend (i prefer legend)





      i literally went through and commented on everything i could find a flaw in so that you can improve it if you want. other than that i really liked the suggestion, 20 kudos!

    • If I might hazard replies...

      1 - The tachi and katana, the weapons that sword is based on, do not curve enough to warrant the shape of the original High Elven sword, which curves to the point of it being more suited as a cavalry saber than a foot soldier's weapon.

      2 - I will provide an image when I am able, but I am unable to do so at this time.

      3 - As the islands of Japan (which this suggestion is based on) used iron in the forging of their weapons, tools, and even their arrowheads, I do not believe using flint would qualify as a substitute.

      4 - They are clans, not tribes. If I might hazard a guess, you are under the impression that this suggestion's faction is based off the Polynesian tribal systems of Southeast Asia and the Pacific. I assure you, this faction is based less on they and more on the Japanese clan-system, which did have lords, known as Daimyo.

      I hope my answers helped to satisfy some of your queries and thoughts.
