But the Isle of Tolfalas was almost destroyed, and was left at last like a barren and lonely mountain in the water not far from the issue of the [Anduin] River.

The Peoples of Middle-earth, The Tale of Years of the Second Age

Tolfalas is an island located off the coast of Gondor. It is independent from Gondor and is its own biome.

Tolfalas is a desolate island, containing dead trees, rocky hills, and small mountains. Large swaths of the island are barren and hilly, making most of the island unsuitable for large-scale settlement. Once, it may have been inhabited by the Men of Gondor, as evidenced by the ruins that can be found here, but now it is ruled by the Corsairs of Umbar. Tolfalas is surrounded with beaches, which serve as a buffer between the biome and the Bay of Belfalas.

Once, Tolfalas was inhabited by Númenóreans, but the Drowning of Númenor destroyed and desolated the island. Now, it's little more than a staging area for Southron fleets.

Once the player enters Tolfalas, they earn the achievement "The Isle in the Bay".

Variants[]

  • Steppe - A very flat version of the biome.
  • Hills - A hillier version of the biome.
  • Mountain - A mountain that rises from the surrounding terrain.
  • Dead Forest - A version of the biome forested with dead trees.
  • Dead oak forest - A version of this biome forested with dead oak trees.

Structures[]

Tolfalas is dotted with camps belonging to the Corsairs of Umbar, who use the island as a staging ground for assaults on Gondor. The island is also dotted with scattered Gondorian ruins, evidence of a time when Gondor ruled the island.

Mobs[]

Aside from bandits, the normal temperate common animals may be found in Tolfalas, as well as marauding Corsairs.

  • Corsair of Umbar - Brigands native to Umbar, the scourge of the high seas. These Haradrim pirates are very effective at killing, and they have a special knack for looting the corpses of their victims. They wear Corsair Armour, often without the helmet, and switch between Corsair Equipment and Bows of Harad in combat.
  • Slave of Harad - Slaves taken from among the victims of the Corsairs, most notably Gondorians, western Morwaith, and Taurethrim. They are useful as farmhands, and can be bought to plant and harvest whatever seeds you give them.
  • Corsair Slaver - Corsairs who manage the slaves taken in raids, and sell them to the highest bidder. They carry Branding Irons and wear Corsair Armour.
  • Corsair Captain - These foul men are the leaders of Corsair bands, most most vicious and bloodthirsty of the pirates of Umbar. They allow players with sufficient alignment to hire their Corsairs.

Vegetation[]

The grass on the island of Tolfalas is a sullen shade of green, rather like that of the Barrow-downs. The trees here are all dead, though they still provide a plentiful source of oak wood.
