NPC talk and decisions for next update:

The Broken Kingdoms:
Deep to the East of the known realm lied a precarious kingdom ruled by a somewhat tall dwarf, compared with his kin; Farin the Tall came from a proud lineage of tall dwarves, or at least tall enough to ride a horse without too much hassle.

Farin the Tall, with his army, was last known to be found in the province of Dorwinion, on his quest to reclaim the lands around (and including the) Iron Hills, the old dwarf-hold that meant so much for him and those of his race.

Unfortunately enough, his strife let him far away from known lands, and Farin found himself slightly isolated; Himself and his 750 soldiers have a mighty task in front of them; to regroup, to reclaim the Iron Hills and, most important, to find their way back to the Withered Heath, their capitol.

----
No army movements


Kingdom of Arthedain:
The Kingdom of Arthedain, Cardolan and Rhudaur has long since been lost, if it ever existed in the first place; today, many factions claim many of the provinces that once shaped the great kingdom that stood here, on these grounds. A legitimate claim to these lands is given by King Mallor of Arthedain, descendant of a dwindling dynasty of Kings of Men.

The plans of Mallor of Arthedain, while unknown at this particular moment, most definitely revolve around reuniting the lands he claims to be his, by birth-right.

----
No army movements


Darkmarshes Faction:
The Darkmarshes are a black, hungry-for-war faction. Ruled by an ambitious king, Agandaur the Marauder, no good thing can ever come to the realm and to those that choose to oppose him.

He is known to always respect his own word, and to be always suspicious at those around him. Cruel, deadly, and with a cunningly strategic mind, people speak about him with respect and fear.

What is to happen from now on, only time will tell.

----
No army movements


Druadain Hill Dwarves:
Whurfirlum Greybeard, king of the dwarves of the Druadain Hill, can be usually seen atop the warrior's hill in Anorien, contemplating about richness, the realm, the craftspeople, the past and future glory. You can clearly know what he is thinking about at any particular moment by the way he strokes his beard.

Little is known about how this kingdom of Dwarves ended up to inhabit the realms of Anorien, but they so far have managed to live in peace with the humans around them, and due to the acumen of Whurfirlum and of his fathers before him, managed to even prosper in these times of incertitude.

----
No army movements


Elves of Cardolan:
Cardolan has always been the place of internal turmoil and dark pestilence and disease, with many associating the region with the barrow-wrights, the icy shadowy wrights haunting the lands.

So you can imagine the surprise when, besides all of this, we find a small community of elves in the region, still prospering and not giving in to the shadows and to the despair.

These elves, ruled by Elrohir, gathered in numbers enough to form a small army and, given time, have a desire to extend their influence into the neighborhood provinces and populate and rule them accordingly.

No army movements

Kingdom of Gondolin - post 1 of 2:
(RP nation: Old gondolin, NS nation: Eglamar)

Ecthelion was looking at the sea. Long time ago, far, far in the west there was the city that appeared in his dreams from time to time. Gondolin, the stone heart of hidden valley. But it was long gone. Deep in the sea it was, walls of the great city broken, sculpture burned and smashed. No light have seen high towers of the past. Only Ulmo visited the place, reminding the old ruins what they once were.

With lingering chagrin, Ecthelion turned away from the Elven Shores and looked to the East. There was a city, surrounded by mountains from the East, open to the music of the sea from the West. The walls were tall, the fountains high. And its name was also Gondolin - it was the capital of the Kingdom of Lindon, founded by Ecthelion after the War of Wrath on the lands that once belonged to Beleriand.

"Fake" some would say. But not many elves remained from those who knew original Gondolin, and even for them it served as a symbol of hope and a monument to the fallen friends.

But the sips were leaving, carrying elves to the West every day. And the beauty of the city was fading, slowly but steadily. Will I be leaving you again behind, my City of Waterfalls?

But there was no time for such thoughts. For whatever time he got left in the Middle Earth, he wanted to use it all.

"Send Greetings to the Elves of Cardolan. Tell Elrohir that it comforts my heart knowing that there are still elves who choose to fight the shadow and protect their land from the darkness. But warn him about the danger from the Kingdom of Arthedain. Surely they will be aiming to reclaim the lands they had in the past, now that they have a new king" Then he added "And tell him this - I will be glad to negotiate on your behalf with the Athedains, but I would be grateful if you could help me to reclaim Mithlond. What do you say?"

And send a messenger to the Kingdm of Arthedain. With these words " I greet you, King Mallor of Arthedain. May the valor of dunedains shine again in dark skies of Middle Earth. We will be glad to help you to rebuild your kingdom, considering the elven borders, and help with trade and knowledge. We are willing to mediate your relationship with relatively young kingdom founded by the Elves of Cardolan and bring our region back to stability and prosperity. What do you say, o King Mallor? In exchange we would appreciate your help with reclaiming Mithlond. Help us and you will have the friendship of the elves",

"Now, should we get us some land?"

The Tribe of the White Hand:
(RP nation: The river isen, NS nation: Dor caranthir)

"Wots dis den yer git? Stinkin' humies on tha move? Get da boyz togetha and let's give 'em a right good stompin'!" Gharag Blacktoof was yelling at the top of his lungs to noone in particular. As Warchief, that was entirely his perogative. Noone was quite sure how the big Uruk had ended up as their leader, but he seemed oddly out of place in the highly structured Uruk army. Yet Warchief he was, a position he enforced through sheer physical prowess and a good deal of 'eadbuttin', as he so eloquently put it.

"Oi, kaptin! Wotcher call dis piece o' land 'ere. Tha one wiv dem 'umies in it?" This time Gharag was glowering at one of the Uruk captains assembled nearby. "Enedhwaith, Warchief," came the reply. "Yer bloody wot? Nononono, we iz callin' it tha stompin' land when wese done wiv it. Bwaahahaha!"

"Oh, and send some o' yer sneaky gits ta have a poke, look for tha next fight."

The captains shrugged at eachother. As long as the going was good, they'd suffer Gharag's peculiarities. And right now the going was particularly good. Gharag claimed to have chosen by The White Hand to lead the disorganised Orcs tribes in the Gap of Isen to conquest and glory, and he had been convincing enough so far. After administering a quick trashing to the most rebellious of the Orc tribes, the Uruks had asserted dominance and formed the groups into the Tribe of the White Hand. To the nearby Humans, the area was known as The Borderlands of The River Isen, and they quickly learned to give it a wide berth.

That worked for a time. However, something was clearly stirring Gharag Blacktoof to ever greater aspirations, and now his troops were marching on Enedhwaith.

----------
3000 Orcs led by Gharag Blacktoof to invade Enedhwaith.
Goblin Scouts sent in the direction of The House of Fingolfin, The Unfettered and the Druadain Hill Dwarves (NPCs). Feel free to interact (or don't, if you prefer) with them if you like.


Kingdom of Gondolin - post 2 of 2:
(RP nation: Old gondolin, NS nation: Eglamar)

While marching to Eryn Vorn, Ecthelion wrote an official proposal to the Dwarfs that were his neighbors to the East. The text was as follows:

"Lord Nelyafinwë the Kinda Cool,

You have probably noticed that recently our mutual trade has brought much wealth to our countries. Our patrols are conducting mutual operations, our merchants trade together, we exchange our knowledge of the world.

Why don't we make our ties even stronger? I hereby offer you a hand of friendship - alliance between elves and dwarfs, like in the old days of the First Age.

Let me know about your answer.

Respectfully,
Ecthelion of Gondolin"

The letter was sent with a messenger to The March of Maedhros


Dominion of Rhun:
(RP nation: Gurthanc rp, NS nation: Gurthanc)

As the Chief arose to the trumpeting of the restless Ouliphants and the bleating of panicked Gemsbok hordes, he called for his scribe and his Warlord, Arthang'uthil, to attend. As the diminutive scribe and the towering Warlord approached, In'tirrilas thought of his promise: A vow made to the elders of Khad to destroy those of the West.
<A map!> he called in Harad and it was brought.
<Who lives here?> In'tirrilas demanded of Arthang, while pointing at Anorien.
<Just a tribe of dwarves, sire.> Whined the scribe
<And who lives here?> Asked In'tirrilas, gesturing at Lamedon and Belfalas.
<A tribe of fellow men> Boomed Arthangg
<Perhaps they would wish to unite to reclaim their homeland...> Pondered In'tirrilas
<Send scouts to the Horse Plains and an army of 1000 warriors through the Southern Pass and into Upper Nurn. Also, send an emissary to Lamedon.>
<And what of me, lord?> Said Arthangg
<Lead an army of 1000 warriors into the Sutherland. Our dominion will grow!> Ordered Cheif In'tirrilas.

The March of Maedhros:
(RP nation: The sons of feanor, NS nation: March of Maedhros)

Nelyafinwë the Kinda Cool looked to the mountains in the north of his realm. Long the River Lhun flows from those frozen springs, long it has flowed down to the sea; where the Elves have their harbours for their departure to the west. It flowed from his lands, it gained strength in his lands, but it flowed to aid the elves. THE ELVES, long unfriendly to dwarves they were. But was change coming? A letter had arrived from Ecthelion asking for friendship... an alliance between Elves and Dwarves. Could this be a ruse? No: Elves are, at the least, trustworthy. He was to be trusted. Ecthelion was an ancient being, long he dwelled in this Middle Earth, and some say in the West. He was one of the High Elves, ancient friends of Dwarves. He dictated this to his scribe:
"Send 'em a letter. I'll agree to this here a pact thing. Write neatly, and in proper tongue. Elves to not take kindly to uncoth folk, or dwarven tongue. But they are strong, powerful beings. They will prove good allies!"

And, strangely enough for a Dwarf, this inspired change in Nelyafinwë. He was going to ask for non-aggression with the Orcs of Angmar. He knew the fighting between Dwarves and Orcs to be ugly and ancient. Long could they battle still. But bloodshed was useless.

----------
Accept alliance with Ecthelion and his people.
Propose non-aggression with The Kingdom of Angmar(send a letter)

The House of Fingolfin:
(RP nation: House of fingolfin, NS nation: Telperion of valinor)

Fingolfin stood besides his sons looking over the Vales of Anduin, awaiting the approach of a scout.
"What news?" Fingolfin's voice passed long and clear through that countryside.
"There are whispers of Orcs from the south my Lord. Their stench was felt as we passed near Fangorn."
Fingolfin turned towards the south, his gaze reaching even to the outskirts of Lorien for his sight was keen. "We must be wary, I will not see our lands defiled by their filth." He then swept his eyes towards Southern Mirkwood, the trees of which had been drawing his attention for weeks. "Yet I fear not an attack from the South. Orome, muster the Elves, for we are to march into Southern Mirkwood, and claim the land that has been calling the House of Fingolfin."

----------
1000 Elves and hero to invade Southern Mirkwood

.... in Cardolan ....
Elves of Cardolan - post 2 of 2:

After receiving word from a fellow elf from over Ered Luin, in the fair realms of Lindon, Elrohir was overjoyed. He treated the messenger with utmost respect, as only the elves of past Gondolin could deserve such honors.

Before reaching any decision, Elrohir needed time to think, and to consult. His little kingdom has no chance to survive in this harsh world if he dived into bigger conflicts than he, and his fellow elf, can handle ; but in the same time, having friends is the key to survival ...

Elrohir informed the messenger that he will receive an answer soon, and to feel as welcomed as possible in his stay in Cardolan, for until the time he sends for him to give the news of their decision.


.... in another part of the world, east of Cardolan ....
Druadain Hill Dwarves - post 2 of 2:

The dwarf-scouts in Anorien noticed curious movements on their western borders. Scouts were approaching their lands, covered by the shadows cast at the foothills of Ered Nimrais. Whurfirlum was unsure of the thoughts these scouts came equipped with, so he put them to be followed.


The Unfettered:
(RP nation: Starrp, NS nation: The starlight)

They were the Unfettered, unbound by loyalty to any. They had all been slaves, servants, men at the whim of their master, but one day, a man had come to break the chains. He had naught but a sword, which they called Chainbreaker, and a name: Valinus Westbrooke. A sword, a name, and words. Words which lifted their hearts up, soaring into the sky like the legendary Eagles of Manwe, words, that lit a fire within them all, that drove them faster, higher, and stronger. And so, they had risen, and broken the chains. And then Valinus had led them to a new land, a land of their own making and reckoning, where they might forge their legacy.

Lamedon and Belfalas were their lands, but soon, they would grow...

Valinus Westbrooke stood upon the walls of his castle, looking outward. Middle-Earth was changing, and he could not tell whether it was for good or ill. The Unfettered were defended by the mountains to the north, and could escape into the Bay of Belfalas, but there were mountain passes, and still plenty of places for them to be invaded. Thus, they had to capture the land that surrounded them before any others did, and so he assembled the armies of the Unfettered, 2000 strong, and led them to Anfalas, to attack it.

But first, there were some emissaries to answer to, and so, he walked down to the throne room and beckoned his guards to bid them enter, one at a time.

The first was a goblin scout from the Tribe of the White Hand, and Valinus bid him welcome. "Greetings, stranger. I am Valinus Westbrooke, leader of the Unfettered. What brings you hither?

After the goblin scout was one from the Dominion of Rhun, and Valinus greeted the emissary as well. "I believe you wish to parley, correct? Your terms, from what I see, are acceptable to me."

----------
2000 Humans to attack Anfalas


The Kingdom of Angmar:
(RP nation: Angmar of the witch king, NS nation: The olog-hai)

This was an... odd... development. Dwarves, a long-standing enemy of the Orcs wished peace. Then again, who was not fearful if the almighty, all-powerful Orcs? Therefore, all banded together in fear of the strength of the Orcs! But this Dwarf wished to put aside old feuds. Perhaps it would enable to Orcs to conquer more, and best all in their strength.
The Witch King contemplated all of this as he read the letter. His lieutenant, Gothmog, an underling of his, an Orc, only, but still useful. The Orcs were only a tool of his, a steppingstone he would use to ascend to great heights. For he was the Black Captain, and all would bend to his will.
Gothmog presented the following: "Just killem all!" he growled in that guttural Orc voice. "They are only dwarves! We are mighty, and we are many. We don' need peace!"
The Witch King silenced him with something that seemed like a glare. Orcs know nothing of politics. One must be careful if one will rise, but action is still needed!
The Witch King said to Gothmog "Send a runner. Not our strongest, but not our weakness. Do not show disrespect, nor shall we show deference. Send our fastest instead. Have him tell the Dwarf that this leave shall be had, for now. Meanwhile, prepare me Orcs. I have business to attend to."

----------
Send a messenger back to Nelyafinwë confirming the non-aggression treaty.
Send 3000 orcs with my hero to attack Upper Anduin.

NPC talk and decisions for next update:

The Broken Kingdoms:
The time for reconnecting is now. Enough expansion. And what's expansion when in the back the people revolt against you, anyway?

That's exactly what happened with Farin the Tall, and his realm. Going from the Withered Heath towards Dorwinion, through Rhovanion, has indeed turned quite a few heads. And some swords. And some humans fell. But as no stable government was left in place of what was before, it was quite easy for barbarians to take control of the few, dissipate garrisons throughout the realms of Rhovanion.

However, the barbarians are to find themselves again in the path of Farin and his dwarf-solders, as he decides to pay them a visit, on his way back towards Withered Heath. And this time, the government is to stick in place. Word already has been sent to the Capital to bring enough dwarf-force to begin construction of gates, armories, halls, and other significant buildings the newly to-be-conquered realm needs.

As if Farin knows that he'll stand unopposed ...
----
Attack Middle Rhovanion with the whole army


Kingdom of Arthedain:
Mallor of Arthedain does not disappoint as a King. From his coronation until now he put the masses to a frenzy, citing claims of past and future glory; Inspiring the men to rise up and to claim what's rightfully theirs, all throughout the realms ... up until those residing in Rhudaur. Apparently they have no desire of reunification ....

... and this serves Mallor perfectly. What better reason to instill fear into those not in line with his rightful quest?

"Rhudaur is to fall."

The decision is made.

[earlier a few days ...]
Elf-scouts from the distant western realms of Gondolin have arrived early in the morning, and requested a meeting with Mallor and the High Council.

After waiting a fair amount of time, they were admitted entrance to the halls of the Fortress of Weathertop. After explaining the reasons of their arrival, Mallor had the following to add:
"I thank you for your words. I find your arrival here to be a sign of good-omen, as I feel that our desires have mutual interests.

It is true, my quest is known to all. It is the quest that lieth in the hearts of all men in this realm, and it is my birthright to pursue.

I ask you to stand beside me, while I claim my lost realms, and I will do the same for you, when the time is right."

----
Attack Rhudaur with all forces.
Send Non-Aggression-Pact request towards the Kingdom of Gondolin


Darkmarshes Faction:
If you want to search for Agandaur the Marauder, you'd most definitely find him on the planes of Horseplains, at the Easterlings Camp. The Easterlings provide Agandaur with some of the well-needed brute force that he'd require, for the expansion that he seeks.

Studying the maps of the realm, the terrain, and the key objectives in a several thousand mile radius, making plans and mental notes - this was not a good time to disturb Agandaur. Yet some more pressing matters also came to his attention; a scout studying the southern realms came bearing news that the humans of Khand are getting closer, after successfully conquering Upper Nurn.

"'Dis might prove challegin', as their intention is unknown. We must decide if they're allies or foes. So send word to them, send word to da armie in Upper Nurn and ask for a formal stance from them towards us. From what I see it, men from Khand mightya prove to be valuable allies, even more than the Easterlings under my ranks. Go now!", said Agandaur, before returning to his maps.

"Aha! We march towards Eastern Rhovanion, then West."

----
Attack Eastern Rhovanion with the whole army.
Send emissary to the Dominion of Rhun


Druadain Hill Dwarves:
No news came yet of the scouts spotted earlier, at the foothills of Ered Nimrais. And as waiting was not one of the strong traits of Greybeard, he send word that Ithilien is to fall. "We'lla mind bout da scouts later."

An attack with all forces is required to break the defenses of the human stronghold of Ithilien, and exactly this kind of attack Whurfirlum Greybeard has in mind.

But attacks are not the only specialty of Whurfirlum the dwarf. Tact diplomacy maybe not, but he'd consider having enough influence in the realm to demand some sort of answer from the humans of Lamedon. After all, isn't him the one of his kin that answered the call to come here and help rebuild the gates of Minas Tirith, for the humans of the realm?

"So send da word, scribe. Send da gifts. Gold, weapons of true-silver for deir king. Inquire of deir expansion plans 'nd remind 'em dat we hath no quarrel with dem, 'nd expect da receive same treatment, if not bettar."

----
Attack Ithilien with the whole army.
Send emissary towards The Unfettered.


Elves of Cardolan:
Elrohir had, finally, reached a decision. He is to embrace the will of old, and unite elf with elf; He'd most certainly help Echtelion in his claim towards the Grey Havens, and would require, in return, a guarantee of his own realms and expansion.

"Times are dark ... ", he thought. "A friend in need is a friend indeed. And friends in need make good allies."

----
Attack Hollin with all forces.
Send alliance request towards the Kingdom of Gondolin

<Peace, and war.> Boomed the Chief, <One upon our friends, one upon our foes!>

The Unfettered:
(RP nation: Starrp, NS nation: The starlight)


They were victorious in Anfalas, and Valinus celebrated with his troops, the proud flag of the Unfettered fluttering high above the parapets. He beckoned to his guards to allow in the emissaries, the first being from the Hill Dwarves. Valinus met them with a cool face, hiding the wrath within him. They had received reports that the dwarves were expanding, into the realms of Men. Dwarves were meant to stay in their little caves with their long beards and gold! He thought in his mind, his face revealing none of his thoughts.

"Welcome, master dwarf, to my hall. The Unfettered are victorious in Anfalas, and now, I turn my eyes west. West to Lebennin, West to the ancient lands of men, Anorien and Ithilien. But you dwarves occupy Ithilien. And that, I am afraid, cannot be borne. Leave Anorien, and do not touch Ithilien, is my warning to thee. While I welcome gifts, I do have quarrel with you. And if it will not be resolved in words, it shall be in cold steel and in blood."

Next was the Rhun emissary, and Valinus welcomed him warmly. "Of course, I agree to this non-aggression pact. The Children of Men should not fight each other, not in a world like this.

To the Tribe of the White Hand, Valinus proposed his plans, "Greetings, emissaries. My proposal is this, a non-aggression pact. If any armed force passes the Old Pukel Gap and attacks, then there will be war. But I have no need of your territory, and you have no need of mine. What say you?

Finally, he commanded a reorganization of his troops, 900 were sent to Lamedon and the remainder remained in Anfalas.

----------

Send 900 men to Lamedon.


Kingdom of Gondolin - post 1 of 2:
(RP nation: Old gondolin, NS nation: Eglamar)


Eryn Vorn was successfully returned to the Kingdom. Just when the celebration were to begin - for the elves of the region were rejoicing to reunite with their brothers from the Kingdom of Gondolin - the messengers Ecthelion had sent to the Kingdom of Arthedain returned. After they transmitted Mallor's answer, they joined the fest, while Ecthelion pondered looking on the sea. "No threat then. But wasn't he too fast? He didn't even deny his ambitions. On one hand it is good to have a king who knows what he wants. On the other hand, being so fast can mean one thing only - he is desperate. Desperate because he needs my support. Or desperate to turn my attention away... So... I guess I'll wait till I get the answer from our brothers from Cardolan" And so he joined the fest, resting after the battle in his mind and with his body.
--
Night has passed. Some elves were still chatting under heavy branches of pine trees, while early birds were starting to sing. It was then that the messengers from Cardolan have arrived. A messenger from Elrohir was bearing great news - elves were willing to unite and fight together against darkness. The conditions were acceptable. And Ecthelion had no reason to say no to his kinsmen.
- So be it. We will be glad to work together with our brother elves. He was sending back the messenger with good news in return. And bring Elrohir these gifts, added Ecthelion just when the rider was getting on his horse. The flag of our Kingdom, made by the elven maids on Elven Shores, and this sword, forged in the Gondolin of old days by the forger of the House of the Fountain, nowhere will you find gems purer that these, except for Silmarils and jewels of our dear Elbereth.
When the rider had left, Ecthelion was certain about his next moves. He summoned his generals.
- Now, my friends, it is time we work harder to protect our allies and the pass to the West. Galdor - he asked one of his aids. Tell me about current situation in Middle Earth.
- My Lord. We have successfully established last of our new trade roads with The March of Maedhros. We are in neutral relations with The Kingdom of Arthedain, which wants to reestablish the Real of Men of old days. Elves of Cardolan are our friends, though they will need our support should they face a threat in the nearest future. There are Orc Tribes near Isen river, and rumors have it they are strong and wish to expand. We have reports of Orcish activity in the North. It is yet unclear what is happening there, but they call themselves the Kingdm of Angmar. I am afraid that..
- that they are THE Angmar ? interrupted Ecthelion
- Y-yes... Apparently there are still elves in Mirkwood and Lorien. Maybe we should contact them?
- Perhaps. What else is there?
- There are also tribes of men around Belfalas, Dwarfs in their Mountains, and some say orcs near Mordor..
- Hm... Send scouts to all these lands. Tell them to bear a diplomatic flag, should they be targeted or threatened. I want them to be as careful and hidden as possible untill they reach the designated lands. There, they are free to engage in diplomatic relations with Men and Dwarfs. We wish peace and economic cooperation with them. With orcs, let them stay low and reveal their identity only if found. Then they can start talking about mutual neutral relations. As for elves, I want them to know that we are here as their brothers and supporters. Be open and warm. There are not many elves left, and we should remain together. Considering our distance and absence of previous contacts, I think it would be an inappropriate idea to offer an alliance right away. Make them feel safe about our intentions. Offer them unified economic zone with no tariffs and a security cooperation based primarily on information exchange - call it The Treaty on Inter-Elven Commerce and Information Exchange (TIECIC)".
The messengers were sent.
- Now we should deal with the Kingdom of Arthedain... And the Orcs near Cardolan.
To men, send them this.
"We shall accept your treaty under condition that you drop your claims on all elven related lands - Southern Arthedain, Cardolan, Dunland, Hollin. THese are the lands that were protected by elves for a long time. Elves live there, they take care of land, protect it. If Mallor agrees, tell him to send me a messenger with his flag, only then I will send him our flag in return agreeing to the non-aggression treaty."
To orcs, send them this.
"Greeting, masters of Isen. We are elves living to the east of you. No harm is done, no harm is intended. Do not enter elven lands to the East of you - Minhiriath, Dunland, Cardolan - and you shall know no war from us or elves of Cardolan. We would be willing to sign a mutual non aggression pact, and we shall negotiate with elves of Cardolan on your behalf. We shall be waiting for your answer with patience. Farewell!"

Making all these calculations was tiresome, but the work wasn't over yet.
- We are not done yet. The Kingdom of Gondolin is not restored. We March for Southern Arthedain today - it's time to reclaim our White Towers. And relocate our capital to Southern Lindon.
Next few days would be full of events.

*thwack* *thwack* thwack* The sound of arrows slamming into shields was becoming increasingly familiar to Gharag Blacktoof as the battle progressed. These humans were nimble, refusing to engage his troops directly. They were inflicting casualties on his Orcish auxiliaries, while his Boyz weren't achieving much. With a snarl he turned to a nearby messenger. "You dere! Get yer shiny arse movin' and tell Captin' Oog ta take 'is Boyz and pillage da 'umies' town. That oughta get dem pesky gits ta stand'n'fight." The messenger nodded once and stormed off.

***

The battle was over, and Gharag's maneuver had succeeded. As soon as the civilians in the village had been threatened, the skirmishing force had been forced to engage the Orcs. In one fell swoop, their resistance had been crushed and the village had been destroyed. The survivors were rounded up, shackled, chained and sent back to Isengard to work in the slave pits. A reasonable haul, all in all, but Gharag had only just had his appetite whetted. "Alright yer stupid gits, stop yer bickerin' and move! Dere's more 'umies ta kill down tha coast! WAAAAGH!"

Noone in the army knew what to make of the Warchief, but the prospect of more conquests and more slaves was appealing. And thus Gharag led his forces onwards to Minhiriath. Meanwhile, several of the scouts had been discovered, although only the one traversing the coastline of Anfalas had been confronted. He was more than happy to agree to any kind of pact in order to save his own skin, although he wasn't sure if the Warchief would agree with the decision. But that was the future, this was now.

***

With greed and bloodthirst running rampant in Gharag's forces, noone noticed the keen-eyed Elven trackers trailing them down the coast.

----------
Army in Enedhwaith to move on and attack Minhiriath.
Accept non-aggression pact with The Unfettered.
Scouts tracking Gharag Blacktoof are having an easy time keeping track of the burly Uruk, and are able to relay any and all information back to their masters.


The Kingdom of Angmar:
(RP nation: Angmar of the witch king, NS nation: The olog-hai)


The dwarves had agreed to peace.
This peace would be upheld. For now.
The elves were going to be an issue, but they were too nice, he'd get a warning before being attacked.
So, he moved out his remaining orcs to assault a region to add to his growing kingdom.

----------
All troops to Grey Mountain Narrows with hero.


Kingdom of Gondolin - post 2 of 2:
(RP nation: Old gondolin, NS nation: Eglamar)


- What?! Ecthelion was in rage. How dare they.
He just got the message from his scouts, sent to track movements of the White Hand tribes. Considering that the report was made some time ago - for there was distance to travel, the situation looked grim.
- They have been warned. And yet they still aim for elven lands. Send a messenger again. Should he return with news about Minhiriath falling to orcs - or not return at all - we will consider it as a declaration of war. And inform the Elves of Cardolan about it, we will need some of their help, albeit a small one.

----------
Sent a message to the White Hand with a declaration of war should Minhiriath fall to orcs.
Inform Elves of Cardolan about the possible turn of events.

ARDA NEWS, the unofficial news service of the RP :

Old gondolin wrote: The Arda Daily - #1
* Seven Days to Pass. One Paper to Describe Them All *
-> The Future of Arda
The Ancient Order is being tested. Recently we have seen an unprecedented number of expansions by different states all over Middle Earth. Our drughu Expert from the Tolfalas Analytic Center - called this "... the new age. Old powers have weekend, the new ones try to grow and this makes old nations either become more active or disappear. Overall, you could have expected this. I mean, elves - ancient but weakened folk by now - are leaving Middle Earth, orcs have grown in power of the last decades, and dwarfs have gotten rich and strong enough to pursue their ambitions. And humans.. Well, they were always ambitious, some would even say vain" He later added, while confidently walking down the stairway:
"Honestly, I hope they won’t touch our little tribe. Even though our Center is politically neutral, if anyone attacks my tribe, I'll curse all of them with my voodoo magic. They will know what real suffering feels like"
-> Dwarfs and Elves – political marriage or rediscovered love?
This week Arda was shaken by an unbelievable announcement – elves and dwarfs are friends again. The March of Maedhros of dwarfs and The Kingdom of Gondolin of elves have officially entered in an alliance. Either party is yet to issue a formal commentary on this matter, but general mood in these countries is quite positive. Searching for reasons of this sudden love, some experts point out to economic benefits; some stress on the importance of unity for these two members; others, however, see it only as a tactical step and expect bloodshed in a couple of years.
“Ya naw, tes dwafs und ulfs ar sily waitin fo a good momnt. Look what dwafs do wit orcs and ulfs wit those small cardolan ulfs ‘own ther. No good, I sai”. Commented a hobbit from the Shire, a country surrounded by dwarfs, elves, and men.
-> Elven Monopoly is Crumbling
Culture sector, the domain almost instantly associated with elves, is facing rapid changes. Recent study revealed that orcs and men are becoming more and more cultured: spend more time in concert halls, museums, cinemas etc. While elves – particularly The Kingdom of Gondolin – still hold the first place, the TOP5 ranking is as follows:
1. The Kingdom of Gondolin – elves
2. The Tribe of the White Hand – orcs
3. Dominion of Rhun - men
4. The Unfettered – men
5. The House of Fingolfin – elves
Is this a new trend? Some culinary and cinema critics point out at orc culture as the next trend in corresponding industries - “Miruvour is for my grandmother. You should try new Orc drought with Mordor flies essence. Orc is the new orange”.
Still, one should not expect these trends to change tourism industry since both Gondolin and Fingolfin states are the most environmentally beautiful countries and are leaders in tourism industry. Be as it may, today culture is an industry that attracts attention of many countries and elves should pay closer attention to it in the future if they want to remain its forerunners.
-> Unfettered and Unfruitful
Proud people of The Unfettered face some grim future. Recently their Parliament has adopted a piece of legislation banning genetic research, in particular for spiritual reasons.
“However, they have failed to take into account a few facts” – commented Leaffruitia, an Entwife from Fangorn association “Children for Bright Future”. “The Unfettered have the highest death rate in Middle Earth, even higher than the Orcs! They are the least healthy people on the continent, and their lifespan is the shortest. Genetic could help them find solution for different health issues. But not only did they ban genetic research, they also expelled corresponding researchers from the country.” She furiously shook her branches, but then added after calming down “Not that I’m complaining, since we took most of them in. They are forc.. I mean willingly contribute to developing stronger saplings for our forests”.
Some experts are more optimistic, like Dantor from NGO "Hor-Hor Ny-Ses Rohan – “It doesn’t mean that The Unfettered will die out. Or that they should rely on genetics to solve current problems. Nonsense. They just have to improve the quality of public healthcare and you’ll see, everything will be just fine!”
It is yet to see what policymakers of The Unfettered have in mind. Hopefully they have a plan, for current situation looks bad and banning genetic research didn’t help making it better.

NPC talk and decisions for next update:

The Broken Kingdoms:
(NPC nation)


Farin's quest to reunite the kingdom of Withered Heath was cut short, unexpectedly, by the rise of a new faction, claiming Northern Rhovanion for themselves.

The scouts messages are quite clear .. Northern Rhovanion has full garrisons, and full garrisons of elves for that matter; Farin wasn't unsure how he felt about this ... so better to wait, rather than be harsh.

And send this message to the elves of Northern Rhovanion:
" Bid da greetings, ruler o'da Northern Rhovanion a'da Greymountains. 'Tis swell da have new faces around these harsh realms. But aint da Narrows of the mountain too cold for ya?

Me be only askin'cause ya see, me quest is da come back to Withered Heath and ya see, ya realm is on me way. Would ya be willin to let me pass, if time comes for me to pass and reunite with me kin, in Withered Heath? Not now, but maybe soon.

Say what? "

Send message to The White Fanged Mountains king, offering a neutral first contact.


Kingdom of Arthedain:
(NPC nation)


Great battles require great sacrifices. And the battle of Rhudaur was more than the battle for reunification. Evil things moved in Rhudaur ... evil, unexpected things.

"Was the war between the realms of Arnor a means of furthering the Witch-king's policy of destroying the Dunedain?", Mallor asked himself. "It is pretty obvious.. " he pondered.

"The seeds of distrust and disunion, if they were to have started somewhere, Agmar's the place. And Rhudaur has been secretly receiving support from Angmar, all this time. I am sure of it."

But more proof is required. The remnants of the Hill-people occupying Rhudaur fled to Upper Rhudaur, and Mallor's in pursuit.

Mallor was, actually, so focused on this new objective, that he put less importance to the delegacy coming forth from the Kingdom of Gondolin. Time is of the essence, if they are to catch at least some of the higher-in-command that are currently en-route to Upper Rhudaur.
Mallor asked the delegacy to join him in his pursuit, in the hopes that they can find a time for talk and discussion in the next days; if not, he proposed them to wait for him at Weathertop, in Eastern Arthedain - as he's expected to arrive back there soon after catching those who's now after.

----------
Attack Upper Rhudaur with all forces.
Ask the delegacy from Gondolin to either come with him in the hopes he can give a reply in the near future, or wait in Eastern Arthedain for an answer by next update.


Darkmarshes Faction:
(NPC nation)


Agandaur waited for a reply from his dispatched scouts, especially from those sent towards the dominion of Rhun, but to no avail. Either they were lost, or they lacked the answer he desired. The scouts knew better not to return if they weren't bringing the news he wanted to hear, of fear of death.

But there's no time for waiting, as expansion awaits. Next on the list of conquests is Dagorlad, a place Agandaur calls home, as he was raised in a camp near the Dead Marshes so, so long ago.

----------
Attack Dagorlad with all forces.


Druadain Hill Dwarves:
(NPC nation)


The spoils of war in Ithilien were slim. "Maybe there's na nathin' good in da realm south of da mountain .. ", Whurfirlum thought.

But Ithilien was more than a spoils-of-war trophy. Ithilien was a strategic point, or even to serve as a jump-point for controlled-expansions to wherever the dwarves desired.

Keeping this in mind, Whurfirlum Greybeard was disturbed by his scouts, returning from the trip he sent them to, in the realms of the Unfettered. After reading the answer king Valinus offered him, Greybeard's face turned red, his blood started boiling and his nostrils were close to catching fire. "Da bastard!", he said. And then grinned.

"We be helpin' humans expand, help, bring da dwarf friendship nd dey ... do dis? Da ungrateful bastards. No man is worth me time anymore. Let da men fight among demselves, let da men craft deir own weapons, armors nd tools. And say this to da king of the Unfettered:"

"Da king Valinus, I be hopin' ta catch ya in good omen, but ya desire meets not mine. Thus, ya have da know dat me be waitin for you atop Emyn Arnen in Ithilien, if ya plan to either visit Ithilien or visit me. Eithar way, be waiting for ya, rest assured."

But Whurfirlum knew he was gamling, and maybe was gambling poorly. He felt surrounded on all sides ... alliance of men to the south, orcs to the east and west ... and elves to the north. He'd need some new friends, or else he could find himself in a locked position ... but whom to trust?

"Da ruler of Darkmarshes, Agandaur the Marauder,

Know dat dwarves nd orcs hath not good experience workin together, but dese migtha'be harsh times.

I be writing ta ya dis message ta discuss important strategic points ya might feel quite interested upon.

I believe ya seen dat a force of men is formin ta ya south, and dey hath no other way to expand othar than thru our realms. I propose ta choose the lesser of ta two evils, and ta work together.

After all, isn't Gorgoroth meant ta be yars, anyway?"

Elves of Cardolan:
(NPC nation)


"Things just got more grim .... ", Elrohir thought to himself, after reading the most recent message coming from his friend Echtelion, of Gondolin.
Flashbacks of the horrors of the Barrow-wights of his own native realm ... it was less of a heads-on war and more of a psychologic war, one they barely topped the scales of. But in doing so, maybe they mustered some experience in this kind of warfare.

So now the following question rises ... "how do the soldiers of Cardolan fare in an open combat? Especially against an army of hardened orcs?"

Questions Elrohir had no answers to. But it was clear; further expansion was needed, as not to be caught in the crossfires. And with that, a message expressing intent.
"To my fair friend Echtelion,

The elves of Cardolan stand next to you, but commited to preserve the peace, even in the face of war.

Know that we have sent a formal declaration of war to the orcs near our borders, and that we are ready to aid you in case you require our help.

If you need further army coordination, please talk with my field generals, as I'm sure something suitable can be arranged.

But if nothing changes, please know that I am going to attack Dunland, so that it doesn't fall to the hands of orcs.

Sincerely yours,
Elrohir of Cardolan"

Sending the previous (and the next) messages put him in a bad place, but merely the thought of orcs trumpling in Dunland ... the thought of precious relics being recklessly destroyed, just for fun ... these thoughts weighted more deeply.

"To the ruler of the Tribe of the White Hand,

Please know that this is a formal declaration of war unto your people, and my intent is expressed clearly: if you pursue further expansion plans, you will be met by a worthy resistance.

I hope things do not escalate more."

----------
Send the two above messages to the elves of Gondolin and the orcs of the Tribe of the White Hand.
Attack Dunland with all forces.

"Da king Valinus, I be hopin' ta catch ya in good omen, but ya desire meets not mine. Thus, ya have da know dat me be waitin for you atop Emyn Arnen in Ithilien, if ya plan to either visit Ithilien or visit me. Eithar way, be waiting for ya, rest assured."

But Whurfirlum knew he was gamling, and maybe was gambling poorly. He felt surrounded on all sides ... alliance of men to the south, orcs to the east and west ... and elves to the north. He'd need some new friends, or else he could find himself in a locked position ... but whom to trust?

"Da ruler of Darkmarshes, Agandaur the Marauder,

Know dat dwarves nd orcs hath not good experience workin together, but dese migtha'be harsh times.

I be writing ta ya dis message ta discuss important strategic points ya might feel quite interested upon.

I believe ya seen dat a force of men is formin ta ya south, and dey hath no other way to expand othar than thru our realms. I propose ta choose the lesser of ta two evils, and ta work together.

After all, isn't Gorgoroth meant ta be yars, anyway?"

Elves of Cardolan:
(NPC nation)


"Things just got more grim .... ", Elrohir thought to himself, after reading the most recent message coming from his friend Echtelion, of Gondolin.
Flashbacks of the horrors of the Barrow-wights of his own native realm ... it was less of a heads-on war and more of a psychologic war, one they barely topped the scales of. But in doing so, maybe they mustered some experience in this kind of warfare.

So now the following question rises ... "how do the soldiers of Cardolan fare in an open combat? Especially against an army of hardened orcs?"

Questions Elrohir had no answers to. But it was clear; further expansion was needed, as not to be caught in the crossfires. And with that, a message expressing intent.
"To my fair friend Echtelion,

The elves of Cardolan stand next to you, but commited to preserve the peace, even in the face of war.

Know that we have sent a formal declaration of war to the orcs near our borders, and that we are ready to aid you in case you require our help.

If you need further army coordination, please talk with my field generals, as I'm sure something suitable can be arranged.

But if nothing changes, please know that I am going to attack Dunland, so that it doesn't fall to the hands of orcs.

Sincerely yours,
Elrohir of Cardolan"

Sending the previous (and the next) messages put him in a bad place, but merely the thought of orcs trumpling in Dunland ... the thought of precious relics being recklessly destroyed, just for fun ... these thoughts weighted more deeply.

"To the ruler of the Tribe of the White Hand,

Please know that this is a formal declaration of war unto your people, and my intent is expressed clearly: if you pursue further expansion plans, you will be met by a worthy resistance.

I hope things do not escalate more."

----------
Send the two above messages to the elves of Gondolin and the orcs of the Tribe of the White Hand.
Attack Dunland with all forces.


The White Fanged Mountains: - post 1 of 5
(RP nation: The white fanged mountains, NS nation: The northern frost dragons)


Realms of Middle Earth,

We are the Clan of the White Fanged Mountains. We are composed of a mighty species, Frost Dragons. Unlike the stereotypical hoarding and burning dragons our fire drake kin has set, we are a peaceful species that do not wish for destruction. We may even have our kind among you(OOC: See Factbook in The Nomadic Peoples of The Northern Frost Dragons) We wish for no war to come to our people unless absolutely necessary. We will allow peaceful passage to anyone who asks through our territory(OOC: Yes to the NPC nation who asked for safe passage to their home). In short terms, Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and good with ketchup.

Chief Frizar of the White Fanged Mountains.

The Broken Kingdoms: - post 2 of 2

Farin the Tall received word from his scouts dispatched towards Northern Rhovanion. The answer was quite positive, and their request was well met ... but something was troubling him. He didn't expect it .... but they were dragons. Dragons! In this day, and age ....

Farin felt uneasy. It is a well known fact that dwarves and dragons never were on good terms with each other ... with some of the most notable interactions between the two kin ending in tragedy for his race. He did not believe that these dragons were different than what he knew ... and it may take a miracle to turn his stubborn mind around. Still ... the answer he received from Chief Frizar had hope.

"Lets'a'build on da hope ... " Farin thought to himself. "And ta alleviate meh worries, and ta know better da dragons, send an official partey ta discuss possible future interactions. Maybe an alliance of some sort, if there's nothing ta suspicious. We'll'a see", dispatching the notes to his scribe, before turning his eyes to a map to the realm.

"Dragons en orcs. Mmmh. Orcs hath been spotted here, en here ... ", pointing to Mirkwood and Eastern Rhovanion.
"... not'ta'good sign, not'ta'good sign at all."

----------
Send another message towards the White Fanged Mountains, asking for more information about the dragons, their desires and inquire about a possible alliance.

Whurfirlum had one more message to be sent. He pondered, which of these will return an answer - if any?

"To da elf of da House of Fingolfin,

Ta legacy inspires me ta write ta ya. Ya be a great king, coming from a big family. Ta kin and me kin, albeit having differences in time, hath also great respect to each other. I ask ye, ya have aspirations towards ta realms of Rohan, Dagorlad, Mirkwood or ta eyes shift elsewhere - perhaps ta ya east or ya west? Or da north? 'Cause if ta eyes shift towards South, know that yer kin is welcomed on the plains of ta Anorien nd Ithilien."

Move 100 Troops to Northern Rhovanion

Declare Allies with Broken Kingdoms

Frizar then paced in front of a map of Middle Earth, staring intensely at the moving orc hoards.
"These orcs of Angmar coming from the West do worry me though. They seem to be moving east into our new allies. Let us intercept them on their current path. If Mirkwood becomes a battleground for our people, we need to be ready for battle."

----------
Move 900 troops and Greyfus the Wanderer to the Heart of Mirkwood.

<Sir?> they replied
<Mordor is teeming with orcs, and we are few. Instead, we must march to encircle them. Turn the tusks of the Mumakil towards Harondor!>

"Alright then. Let us agree to this parley with the Men of Rhun. They might be valuable allies." Frizar said. "Request an alliance with Rhun. However, if they are not willing to ally with our allies of the Broken Kingdoms, we will not accept their alliance."

What was this? Dragons?
They were all dead, the last true dragon slain by Bard the Bowman, a stinking man! And apparently, here they come, out if the mountains, supposedly neutral, yet cutting off Abgmar's expansion!
Thus shall not be forgiven quickly! But rumors show that they are making an alliance with multiple other nations, We'd have to be careful when wiping them out.
Reports showed that they were making a movement into the Heart of Mirkwood, to cut him off. Well, two could play at that game!
"Gothmog, prepare me the army! We have land to take! Send a diplomat to these filthy dragons, inquiring as to their movements in Mirkwood when they're supposedly neutral."
Rumors also held that a kingdom if elves had declared war on an Orc tribe, he would have to see if this was true. So, he sent out a runner, hoping he can get past the elves to parlay with the Orcs.

"why have you come before us filth," Frizar asked the orc standing in his throne room.
The orc replied,"My master, the Witch King, inquires why you have moved into the path of his conquest when you are supposedly a neutral species."
"You were on the verge of cutting off my people from the world," Frizar replied," And let's face it, Everybody hates orcs."
The messenger hissed, and Frizar replied with a blast of ice, encasing the messenger in ice mid-shout.
"Inform the Witch King of Angmar," frizar told his squire, "Tell him we do not negotiate with orcs well."
he then pulled out his sword and cut through the newly frozen orc like warm butter, shattering it into millions of pieces of flesh and ice.

ARDA NEWS, the unofficial news service of the RP :

Old gondolin wrote:OFF: If you want to write an article or give an interview, feel free to send me a message ;)

The Arda Daily - #2
SPECIAL EDITION: The Dragon Family
* Seven Days to Pass. One Paper to Describe Them All *

-> It's a Bird...It's a Plane...It's Chief Frizar of the White Fanged Mountains!

This week Arda was shaken by an extraordinary discovery of an unknown nation, of which there have been only rumors up until now.
" Clansmen of the White Fanged Mountains - as they call themselves - do not appear to be a primitive folk. - commented these news Uruk, an expert anthropologist from the Orthank Research Center (ORC). We are talking about an intelligent race, a proud race at that. They are basically dragons, which according to my theory has mutated and developed abilities to manipulate snow and ice. I mean, I would have developed those skills too if I had to clean my driveway every day from 2-3 meters of snow. You know, they live way in the North, behind the Wall of Grey Mountains. It's cold there, especially when winter is coming".

Many were puzzled why it had taken us so long to discover their existence. There are multiple theories to it. Some experts point out to their technological development, since they are second least scientifically advanced county in Arda. Others mention that they are the youngest race in Middle Earth, although they lack information on where they come from exactly. Lalei, ambassador from the Kingdom of Gondolin to the Clan of White Fanged Mountains, has just signed up a non-aggression and trade treaties with them, offered your author a different perspective:
"I come from Gondolin. One has to have guts to say that Gondolin was not developed or did not exist in Arda before it was "discovered". Same with our friends from the Grey Mountains. They just decided to announce their presence." Some, nevertheless, believe that there is truth in all these points. Frost dragons didn't have the reason to interact with the outside world. But now, threatened by the growing presence of dwarfs and orcs around grey mountains, they had no choice but to react.

And react they did. They announced their presence and their neutrality. Where this will lead will be seen later, but the status of neutrality may be unstable, since Frost Dragons have already aligned their development strategy with that of the Broken Kingdom of dwarfs. Is it a cruel plot to get treasures of Dwarfs ? Time will show.

-> Fleeing the North: a story of Smagus

Smagus, an old Frost Dragon, has asked asylum at the Tolfalas Elderly Care Center after his compatriots have voted in favor of new labor legislation, which resulted in many senior citizens being almost forced to do heavy manual labor. After a few days of such humiliation, Smagus - who has been a well known culinary expert up until his retirement - decided to flee from his country and search for comfortable life. Nevertheless, he is but an exception. Many senior dragons continue suffering. Reasons for this, as we shall see, are numerous, while the solutions are few.

Expert from the Golden Bank of Tolfalas, who asked to remain anonymous offered a following explanation:
"It's not a secret that they are facing an economic crisis. Economy has shkinked by 25%, income decreased, crime rates have tripled! At the same time their population stagnated over this period of time. I don't know a country in whole Arda where the government controls economy so much, so it wasn't a surprise to hear that they changed labor laws to make seniors work."

Did it work? Definitely. Statistics has shown an increase in economic output of the Draconic population, rates of unemployment are close to the lowest in Arda. But did it improve the quality of life for simple citizens? Hardly. Human Development Index has dropped by 2 points (from 47 to 45), position Dragons well behind such races as orcs (50 being the average), which tend to be less "human oriented".
To some the solution is simple. Government should give people more freedom to start their business. To others, however, it is more complex and requires senior citizens.

While Dragons debate and decide, Smagus is healing his injured joints on Talfalas beaches.
"I worked enough in my youth. Now I want to have some rest. A pity that I will have to spend my last days here" - nostalgically droped Smagus when your author was ending the interview. Hopefully Smagus will get a chance to enjoy his life in the Grey Mountains. But this will require some political changes, which are rather unlikely.

-> Healthy dragon - new paradigm for old Frost Dragons

Frost Dragons have invested heavily in the quality of life of their citizens over the last few years. And it hasn't gone unnoticed.

Recent study has shown that their death rate has decreased from 105 to 53 point at Big Surprisal Index, well below the majority of countries of Middle Earth (average death rate around 120 points). They've tripled the health indicators for their population, also well about the average.
How did Mr Frizar managed to achieve this? Our usual expert, Leaffruitia, an Entwife from Fangorn association “Children for Bright Future” offers her insight:
"Well, he invested heavily in the insurance industry. Have you seen it? His clan ranks 3rd in Middle Earth! Of course they will see their indexes improve. Actually, the only problem I have with their healthcare system is the fact that they shifted towards private healthcare. Don't you think this is the reason why the safety of that region has drop dramatically ?" - stressed Leaffuta while knowingly shaking her branches.

In the end, the health care problems seem to improve, which is a good thing. Mr Frizar's effort should be congratulated, but surrounding nations remain silent. Jealousy? Unimpressed? Who knows, only time will show...

NPC talk and decisions for next update:

The Broken Kingdoms:
(NPC nation)

Farin's scouts came with all kind of news; those sent to the White Fanged Mountains returned with great pride and with fastuous celebrations; not every day you interact with a dragon and live to tell the story. Or keep your coins. The news of their Alliance pleased very much Farin the Tall. And the news of the Alliance came at exactly the best time, seeing that not all of the scouts came with great things to report ...

The scouts from the North reported that a contigent of their brethren are still trapped behind the Iron Hills fortress, one that's guarded by the Iron Hill dwarves, Farin's long lasting enemies - so there's really no way to escape around the Iron Hills as the Capital of Withered Heath is in danger of raid by the cunning Iron Hill dwarves, and there's no way that a direct attack would succeed, due to the enemy's deep defensive positions.

A stalemate ...

But that's not all. As if the news of his trapped brethren was not enough, Farin just got hold off word that orcs are only a few miles away from his territories - to the west, and to the South. In two directions! And more to the south, one of the few remnant dwarfish civilisations inhabiting the realms of Anorien - themselves in great danger from orcs and humans alike.

"Dwarves're persecut'd everywher'...", Farin thought to himself. "Long passed da days when ya dwarf hath be worshipped as grreat craftman, soldier nd friend. Nowaday they da want our riches, no matta wha."

"Say, scribe, com'her. Write 'dis. To ar dragon friends. Ask ye if ye could assist dwarves with maybe half dey contigent of soldier for a quick attack on da Iron Hills, togethar. Bet dat tem dwarves currently residing in Iron Hills would scare and run, upon seeing da dragons. Dey don even hath to fight. Butta considerin' dem Iron Hills people, not fightin' is no an'option. Ask, ask ye them. Connectin our realms means quickier surplus of soldiers, means bettar defending of ar realms against outside forces, like dem orcs."

After finishing the note, Farin turned around. He was stared by a puzzling set of eyes ... Ahh, they were human! Humans from the South. How they managed to went past the orcish garrisons along the way was beyond his grasp, but he was more interested in the message they came here to serve. As it should be important, coming all this way to his kingdom.

"Aye, alliance 'nd mutual respect ya say? Alliance'rs not made out of a whimsly, ya know lad. Alliances'r precious things in da realm. Would ya be able to help me friend dwarf, dat one in Ithilien, in return for meh gratitude 'nd sword? I say, mutual trade 'nd some sort of a tri-trident army of da dwarves nd da humans, in case Orcs plan to attack either one of us?"

----------
Ask the White Fanged Mountain people if they are willing to assist in attacking together the Iron Hills - asking for an army of around 700 soldiers attacking together. If its something the White Fanged Mountains are considering or not please reply
Send the message to the Dominion of Rhun, asking for mutual defense between Rhun and the dwarves of Ithilien, and for possible attack against the orcs in case of need. If the Dominion of Rhun does not accept, then the Broken Kingdom will not accept an alliance with the Dominion, and the Dominion of Rhun has to re-discuss their alliance offer (as it was conditioned by the acceptance of an alliance between the Broken Kingdom and Rhun)


Kingdom of Arthedain:
(NPC nation)

With the King-in-Exile of Rhudaur eliminated, only a few enemy provinces have remained unclaimed.

And two more are to fall next.

----------
Attack two nearby provinces, with half of total amount of soldier to each


Darkmarshes Faction:
(NPC nation)


Agandaur the Marauder had all the realms over the mountains of Gorgoroth up to himself, and to his armies. But there was still room for more; specifically the Brown Lands and the Western part of Rhivanion.

Agandaur looked at his host of soldiers and understood that he didn't have (yet) the manpower to mount an attack on two fronts in the same time ... so, still, he had to concentrate all of his army one province at a turn. First was Western Rhovanion.

And with that, he felt he was close enough to another orc. The Witch-King they tell him by name. Feared, some say. Agandaur wasn't impressed, yet an orc in need is an orc indeed.

"So send word to his orc. His force looks migty enough to be worthy an interaction with. But beware - do not let yourselves be captured by spies along the way! The message has to remain secret. Ask if they are interested in working together, orc with orc. We need to cleanse some factions from around here anyway ..."
----------
Attack Western Rhovanion with all forces
Send message to the Witch-King of Angmar


Druadain Hill Dwarves:
(NPC nation)


Whurfirlum Greybeard received no reply yet from his messenger sent towards the House of Fingolfin. Without a firm contact and without a firm contract in the form of an Alliance, he found it close to impossible to attack the orcs further north. "Not when other eyes are on my home ... ", he thought to himself.

"Send again da message to the House of Fingolfin. Express ta them our best whatever best ya have ta say, to impress da elves ta offer a reply. It isa must."

----------
Send message (again) to the House of Fingolfin, inquiring about a working together, against common enemies.


Elves of Cardolan:
(NPC nation)


Dunland was theirs. Starting with Cardolan and now expanding west ... felt curious, yet satisfying. Old vestiges and relics ...

Elrohir's army reached the gates of Moria. He was tempted ... to go to attack the Redhorn Gate, or to stay and defend the realm in case of an orc-ish invasion?

Send a message to our allies. Ask them what should be our plan regarding our "friend" across the border. If things aren't too aggressive, then Elrohir planned to attack the Redhorn Gate.

"Oh. And insert this little note on our dwarf and orcish friends further north.: If dwarves and orcs have a non aggression-treaty, one that the orcs appear to respect, would that mean possible trouble in the west between the other races?"
----------
Send an emissary to the Kingdom of Gondolin, inquiring about their plans. Explaining to them that if they have no desire for war, then the Elves of Cardolan would attack Redhorn Gate.

Kingdom of Gondolin: - post 1 of 4
(RP nation: Old gondolin, NS nation: Eglamar)


* In Eryn Vorn
"Good" said Ecthelion once he heard new about reinforcements coming from Northern Lindon.
"Then we shall not wait. Gather all our troops, we march to reclaim our old city - Mithlond".

*In the Dominion of Rhun
Once messenger was admitted to the palace, he bowed, presenting gifts from Gndolin to the king of men.
"I come from the West, from the Kingdom of Gondolin. My Lord has sent you greeting and these elven gifts. We are a peaceful kingdom, wishing only prosperity and peace for our brothers in the South" After presenting a few long sharp swords forged in Old Gondolin as well as a couple of small silver ornaments with jewels, the messenger continued.
"My Lord asks whether you would be interested in the formation of NEMTIA - New Elven-Men Trade and Information Agreement ? This is but an idea to develop, but both our countries would benefit from absence of any formal aggression and presence of trade and information exchange between our countries. What say you?"

*In Cardolan
Having received a messenger from Cardolan, Echelion sent him back with a short answer "It appears we have a moment. Orcs have stopped their movements... for now... So it would only be wise to make us stronger while they are thinking what to do. Do as you have planned. Myself I'm going to try to capture our old city of Mithlond".

----------
March all troops to Mithlond (1480 elves with Ecthelion).
Offer NEMTIA to the Dominion of Rhin (non-aggression + trade treaty).


Dominion of Rhun: - post 1 of 4
(RP nation: Gurthanc rp, NS nation: Gurthanc)


<The elves wish to trade and treaty?> pondered Lord In'tirrilas. <The so called 'Children of Illuvatar' have always been removed from our tribes... but perhaps...>
As the messenger awaited, confused by the strange dialect of the Easterlings, the King dictated a reply to his scribe, who translated it meticulously into Quenta, the tongue of the elves. This letter was in turn handed to a Gemsbok Rider who set off in the direction of the Kingdom of Gondolin. The elven messenger was the summarily dismissed by the tribal leaders, returning to his land in utter confusion. The letter so reads:
To the elf leader who it concerns,
We have received your messenger and your request for us to enter NEMITA. We accept this union of nations, promising to aid you in war, conditional that you do the same. However, do not stray in the path of our armies, or those of our allies. For we are mighty in peace, doubly so in wrath. Tread carefully in our alliance, and you will be respected; do not obstruct our path to conquest, and you will be unharmed. But if you betray us, the long reach of the Mumakil will reach out and be your end
Signed, Lord In'tirrilas, Master of the East

----------
Accept formal alliance with Gondolin


Kingdom of Gondolin: - post 2 of 4
(RP nation: Old gondolin, NS nation: Eglamar)


"Master of the East? Hahahaha" Ecthelion couldn't prevent a smile appearing on his face. "Humans.. Always rushing for big titles. It's not the amount of lands that counts, but the quality. Not the title that matters, but the essence of the person behind it "
Afterwards he addressed to the messenger in clear Westron.
"So be it. We shall enlighten you and bring harmony to your people. We shall offer you aid, providing you with knowledge and experience to be one with nature. But beware, for advice is a dangerous gift. Only you will be ultimately responsible for what you do."
A letter with a similar content was given to the messenger, with an ink line still fresh bearing "Signed, Ecthelion of Gondolin, Messenger of the West"


Dominion of Rhun: - post 2 of 4
(RP nation: Gurthanc rp, NS nation: Gurthanc)


<Heh. The elf bandies with words...>Chuckled King In'tirrilas in the harsh language of the Harad
<What reciprocation would we enact to punish him for his blasphemy? Enlightenment? We need none.> Muttered a scribe in glee
<None. Any aid is appreciated, and ever have elves been like that.> commanded the King. <Send them another letter, written so:>
To the Enlightened Messenger of the West
We gracefully accept your overtures of peace and trade. The promise of knowledge is a mighty one, and knowing your enemy kills more of them than an arrow. Advise us not on nature, as we have lived in an endless struggle with the harsh nature of Harad, and have overcome it.
Signed, King In'tirrilas, Messenger of the East


Kingdom of Gondolin: - post 3 of 4
(RP nation: Old gondolin, NS nation: Eglamar)


New message has arrived. Ecthelion has looked at the carefully written script and smirked, thinking 'Indeed, for the Dominion of Rhun to expand so fast they had to have a far-sighted leader. It seemed as if In'tirrilas has seen through the elegantly flowered wording. Well, he is not the type who would just follow what elves say. Ugh, how troublesome. All we want is peace and free trade, but apparently we'll have to engage in the duel of wits, trying to outsmart each other to gain control. Humans... How cumbersome'.

He addressed his scribe:
"Here is our response":

To the Indomitable Messenger of the East
We are delighted to work with you for better future for all.
It is as you have said. You are a strong nation, surviving countless troubles. And it makes our hearts bleed, it fills our eyes with sorrow, for it was not your nation that changed the face of Arda and made many a people suffer.
With this letter you are to receive three elven ships filled with children books in Sindarin, Quenya, and Westron and two with guides and manual on culture and tourism management. Hopefully you will find them useful in developing your country. We have also sent you 5 ships with tree saplings as well as flower and vegetable seeds. They are accompanied by a group of our gardeners who have willingly accepted to come to your region to enrich the wildlife there.
We offer the best we have.
Should you have an initiative or be willing to help us, please address Gandom, the messenger who has delivered this letter and who will be permanently representing our side in your distinguished Dominion. We shall arrange transportation ourselves not to burden you.
Signed, Ecthelion of Gondolin, Protector of the West


Dominion of Rhun: - post 3 of 4
(RP nation: Gurthanc rp, NS nation: Gurthanc)


<Ah! A response so soon!> Called a aide, ushering in the elven emissary, who introduced himself as Gandom
<We shall see what they say...> muttered the King. After reading the letter, he adressed Gandom, saying:
You are to respresent Gondolin, then? Rasped the King in guttural Quenta
"Yes m'lord" Responded the emissary.
Very well. We gratefully accept your donation of... ah... after peering at the letter from Gondolin, the King finished his statement: Cultural guidance... They will be welcome additions to our book caches.
However, the trees and plants will be useful indeed in reforesting the desert places East and South of Khand... We have repeatedly tried this with vegetation from our lands, but the environment was never conditioned sufficiently to support them... But of late I have heard that trees from the lands of the elves never die... said the King.
Ah! But I am forgetting something! We cannot let your kindness go unrewarded! We shall send you several caravans over land, containing the riches of the East! We shall send: three crates of jewels, mined from the mountains of Mordor; several tame Gemsbok and Rhinoceros, aalong with several pounds of feed. Adressing the court, the King boomed: <So says In'tirrilas, Lord of the East!> As he finished this proclamation, the King dismissed the court and dissapeared into his tent.


The Kingdom of Angmar: - secret post!
(RP nation: Angmar of the witch king, NS nation: The olog-hai)


What was this?
Filthy dragons! We should never have even thought about talking to them! We should have exterminated them right away! As soon as they emerged!
This was the greatest insult! Not only did they kill our messenger (not a big deal) who came bearing messages of peace (a slightly bigger deal), they also refused any and all agreements with us! Punishment would come soon, for the Witch King's wrath filled him.
Finally, though, a message from one of the few other surviving Orc nations: a faction residing far to the south, in the lands where Orcs orginiated from. A land once know as Mordor, the realm of Sauron.
"We will parlay with you," he told the sniveling Orc messenger. "Perhaps an alliance is in the making. But tell your leader this: the dwarves to the west of me, I will not fight them. They are the one neighboring kingdom who does not wish to destroy me. If they did, well, being surrounded is not beneficial in warfare."

----------
Send the message to the Darkmarshes faction.
All orcs from Angmar move to Gundabad, all orcs from Western Mirkwood move to Upper Anduin


Dominion of Rhun: - post 4 of 4
(RP nation: Gurthanc rp, NS nation: Gurthanc)


<Ha! We have finally recruited a new warband! Muster them at the Capital, then march them to the Sutherland! Our dominion will not be stopped for lack of troops!> giving orders to a messenger, Warlord Arthang'uthil dismounted his Mumakil and turned to the massed troops
<Rest! Rest my men, and enjoy the spoils of our conquests! For new warriors approach, and our job will yet be at hand!> Arthang'uthil's vioce boomed out.
With a large cry, the tired warriors surged to their feet in a mighty roar, inspiring the Warlord with glee.
<We will win, and the East will become rulers of all!> he thought.


The March of Maedhros:

"The Elves, they're taking all the glory; Our Glory. We must take the glory that is our!" Ranted Maedhros the Ironically Short Dwarf
"Nah mate, calm it down. The Elves are our friends. They must seek the glory that belongs to the Eldest race", Nelyafinwë the Kinda Cool look on his stern Hero, he could see the pride of Durin in his eyes, "Yet, you do not speak lies: they have fought valiantly (for Elves that is) in these late days, even though some of their folk have begun to depart for they're home. I will say this: We shall not let our allies have all the glory, rally the troops; we will prepare for a proper storm. Mahal shall be joyous to see us in raiment of war, taking the glory that is destined for us!"

Rohan must make a stand before all is lost, right now even the great "White City" has fallen to some mangy dwarfs. Already Isengard starts to burn forests everywhere, soon even Fangorn and the golden trees of Lothlorien will burn and be nothing but ashes, Men of Rohan! Oaths you have taken!!!


Kingdom of Gondolin: - post 4 of 4
(RP nation: Old gondolin, NS nation: Eglamar)


Ecthelion frowned while looking at the map of Middle Earth. Evil was spreading fast. The forces of light, however, were not united but scattered as petals of cherry blossoms in the spring. Let the sun shine brighter and they will lose their tenderness, their life. Let the orcs grow more and even if all the elves unite and all the dwarves join in, the defeat of light would be imminent.
"What can I do.. What can I do..." the king of h was deep in his thoughts. So far he was trying to save as many elves as possible. It was not for pleasure that he carried out this whole campaign to control the Elven Shores. It was not for his ambition that he decided to take Mithlond under his control. With Mithlond in his hands and with the Alliance with the Elves of Cardolan he would be able to prepare the safe road for elves to Valinor. Anyone from Mirkwood and Lorien to Lindon would be able to leave Middle Earth.
But the threat from Isengard was growing. Orcs were on his borders and Ecthelion had to find a solution fast. If not... He didn't even want to think about the scenario where orcs get past Eryn Vorn.
Then a glimpse of hope appeared in his mind.
"What about Rohan? Would they not help?"
A possible solution was better then nothing. Ecthelion swiftly called his assistants:
"Get the messenger here fast. We need to deliver the message to Rohan:

*We are the elves from the West!
Proud men of Rohan, are you still able to carry your lances? Are you still the fearless sons of Eorl the Young?
If there is still a glimpse of glory of the past in your hearts, answer us, for the evil is growing and we must act swiftly.
Signed,
Ecthelion of Gondolin, Protector of the West*

"King Elfwine of Rohan! I bring a message from the kingdom of Gondolin!" Said the messenger. *Elfwine closely reads the message* "Have I not made my self clear? Let me say it again... Men of Rohan! Oaths you have taken!!!" "Oh and to make things even clearer, the answer is yes, yes we are able to carry or lances, YES we are the fearless sons of Eorl the Young, YES THERE IS GLORY IN OUR HEARTS!!!" "Just to improve our relations send an ambassador to the kingdom of Gondolin"

NPC talk and decisions for next update:


White Hand Tribe Rebels:
(NPC nation)


News came forth that Ghazghkull Mag Uruk is the new warlord of the White Hand Tribes. The most notorious orc under the command of the past ruler, word is that he challenged his leader in fair fight - and won.

Not much is known about Ghazghkull Mag Uruk, other than him being known as a megalomaniacal orc, convinced he is blessed by the orc gods Gork and Mork. It is said that he possesses a considerable measure of cunning, and in battle he tends to focus more on commanding his troops compared to other warlords, only engaging in combat himself at critical moments.

The following are the orders dispatched by Ghazghkull:

To the humans of the Unfettered:
"King of the Unfettered,

I am the new warlord of the White Hand Tribes. I am writing to you this message to assure you that our orcs wish not to cross the Old Pukel Gap, if your humans do not plan on doing it either - unless in aid. To that extend, I am offering the same Non-Aggression-Pact that you had with my precedessor, one that, given time, we can perhaps turn into an Alliance."

To the elves of Gondolin and Cardolan:
"Elves to the North,

I am the new warlord of the White Hand Tribes. I am writing this message to you to let you know that I have no desire to engage in petty wars with your kin, nor do I have any desire for your lands. My precedessor had not the vision that I possess, and thus he faulted himself when he marched North. Fear not, I say again, as unless you want to make a move on me, I plan not to make a move on you. Perhaps we can prosper together, rather than fall divided. "
----------
Send the two above messages to the Unfettered, Kingdom of Gondolin and Elves of Cardolan.


The Broken Kingdoms:
(NPC nation)


"Send word to the dragons of the White Fanged Mountains that we plan to move our soldiers from Withered Heath towards Middle Rhovanion, which'll cause them to transverse the lands of Northern Rhovanion, now under their claim. Offer our certitude that we plan not to turn a stone from its rightful place on our march."
----------


Kingdom of Arthedain:
(NPC nation)


The King looked at the map, pleased with himself. He united the lands! There was no need any more for war, and thus he decreted general demobilization. It is time for peace now, and prosperous times under the new united kingdom.

Send word to the alliance of Elves and Dwarves:
"Thank you for not interfering with my just claim.

I say that I united all my lands, and now look unto pushing further North, punishing the orcs of Angmar - for I consider them guilty for the past breakdown of my kingdom.

But for doing so, I would like to know your plans."
----------
Send the above message to the elves of Gondolin, Cardolan and the dwarves of Maedhros.


Darkmarshes Faction:
(NPC nation)

The Darkmarshes received the message from the orcs of Angmar. The time for claiming neutral provinces is drawing to a halt, now as unclaimed provinces are no longer. It's the time for alliances, now ...

All around, the nations entered formal, or less-than-formal alliances, non-aggression pacts and concocted ambitious plans. The Darkmarshes have to do the same, in order not only to survive, but to prosper.

The following message is to be sent, with utmost secrecy, to the orcs of Angmar:
"I've received your word. There is no desire for me in the western part of our world. My eyes roam closer to home, at the lands nearby, betwen you and me.

Surrounded by elves, dwarves and humans, you and me are left standed - if not working together, we surely will fail alone. I propose to you a secret alliance, one that we can expose when the time is right.

Moreover, we should plan ways on how to expand our kingdoms."

The following message is to be sent, with a significant war-party to the Dominion of Rhun:
"King of the Dominion,

The war-party that accompanies this message is not to cause you harm, nor to impose unto your kingdom. It is only that, in the past, I have tried contacting you, unsuccessfully. My scouts probably got lost along the way, or worse. I hope that this message reaches you, for the words written inside bear some significance.

You hail from the realms further to the South, and your mighty faction rivals the mighty human kings of the past. Rhun and Gorgoroth have always been allies, and I wish to extend the alliance further, from Rhun towards the Darkmarshes.

Your isolationism means that you, eventually, have to cross paths either with the orcs of the Darkmarshes, or the dwarves of the Druadain Hills. I propose you to honor my request, and strike unto the Druadain Hills with me. They will prove no match for a combined force of orcs and humans, and, in return for your allegiance to our common cause, will offer you my claim on their lands.

I await a quick reply from you on this matter of utmost importance."

----------
Send the above messages to the Kingdom of Angmar and to the Dominion of Rhun


Druadain Hill Dwarves:
(NPC nation)


No news.
----------

Elves of Cardolan:
(NPC nation)


No news.
----------

Some higher powers .... :


Unless the Dominion of Rhun increases their God Favoritism ranking to above 75, then the Gods will declare the lands under the Dominion control unsuitable to be owned by them, following next RP update.

NPC talk and decisions for next update:


White Hand Tribe Rebels:
(NPC nation)

The White Hand Tribe Rebels have mostly received satisfying replies from the requests they put forward.

The lack of answer from the dwarves of Maedhros the Ironically Short Dwarf was slightly disturbing. "Perhaps the emissaries got lost along the way", the ruler of the White Hand Rebels thought. "Send a new pack of riders towards River Lhun, with the same message. Will you support me in my claims unto Rohan in return for keeping Upper Rhudaur and me forgiving you for attacking a province from my sphere of influence, as set forward in the Summit?"

"On a slightly similar account, send some raiders to the Kingdom of Gondolin as well", he added.

"To Ecthelion,

I have received your latest message, and your terms feel acceptable. However, unfortunately enough, I fear that some pages from your letter got lost along the way, as I had not found your answer regarding your support towards my claims on Rohan - or lack of support for such a course of action.

This is a most important matter, as that will dictate if I agree with your terms of switching of provinces or not. Do consider that you do not own that province you ask me to claim, and you are effectively asking me to start and engage in a war, one that might not stop only with the annexation of a province. I will not be part of a costly war unless I know of your unwavering support on the matters that revolve around my kingdom's security.

It is the reason why I have dispatched these raiders you see in front of you, so that they can deliver the message in its full, without the chance of something getting lost along the way."

"And lastly", he added, "to the kingdom of The Unfettered send the following "

"Ruler of the Unfettered,

King Valinus,

Your words of support do not fall unto deaf ears. While the most important matter, your silence regarding my claim on Rohan has been denied, I am willing to accept your offer of peace and assistance between our two kin - with a Formal Alliance between our kingdoms, rather than a Non-Aggression-Pact.

This Formal Alliance is conditioned by our acceptance for your forces to march unto Andrast to conquer and annex it as part of your realms - but only if you pledge support to our future endeavours, and as will we to yours.

Your worrying regarding the expansion of the western alliance - the elves of Gondolin and the dwarves of Maedhros .. is it shared among your allies, as well? I may be caught in a wits-war between the West and the East ... and I am interested to know the full extent of the shroud of discontent regarding them.

I await your reply. "

----------

The Gods ask the Kingdom of Rohan to increases their God Favoritism ranking to above 75 or cease control of one province. Last warning!

----------

The Gods ask the March of Maedhros to increases their God Favoritism ranking to above 75 or cease control of one province. Last warning!

----------

The Gods ask the The Kingdom of Gondolin to increases their God Favoritism ranking to above 95 or cease control of one province, or else the Gods will declare the lands under the Dominion control unsuitable to be owned by them.

NPC talk and decisions for next update:


White Hand Tribe Rebels:
(NPC nation)

-- will complete later --

As the dwarves of Maedhros haven't replied to any of the requests made by the White Hand, the White hand rebels have called for a Crusade against the realm of Upper Rhudaur.
----------
Created a CRUSADE with the destination the province of Upper Rhudaur. Reason for this Crusade: known for those in the Summit - part of sphere of influence. reason known to the rest of the world - the Gods have declared war against Maedhros.
Reply to Gondolin elves that the orcs will not fight the elves of Cardolan, but will engage against the dwarves of Maedhros and all of their allies. Knowing of the relation between the two factions, the White Hand Rebels ask the Gondolin elves not to interfere with the Crusade.


The Broken Kingdoms:
(NPC nation)

-- will complete later --

----------
Created a CRUSADE with the destination the province of Gorgoroth. Reason is that the Humans of the Dominion have been called by the Gods.


Kingdom of Arthedain:
(NPC nation)

The Arthedain King received the news of the fall of Ettenmoors with bitter taste. While he was in High Pass, trying to secure a pathway of connection to the humans of Rohan - as per their suggestion - in their back there's only destruction.

The realm of Arthedain is lost for now ... and even if the legacy remains, the only living bloodline to claim the throne is now in jeopardy, stranded in the province of High Pass.

Send a word to the humans of Rohan; Ask for their dire assistance. Ask for their men, ask for their horses - ask for them all to meet us in the High Pass, and secure the pass against the usurpers. Dwarves and Elves in the human lands of Arthedain ... a heresy!

To that extend, if Rohan accepts also request an alliance change - turn the alliance into an official alliance, so that the forces of Rohan can engage the fight, if there's one to be ...

What they planned to be a surprise attack on the dwarves proved to be a double-surprise - as the dwarves marched with a few soldiers of their own on the province of Hollin; as the dices were cast, the orcs were faster and already crossed into Rhudaur by the time the host of dwarves wanted to traverse into Hollin, to attack.

Now, the White Hand Tribe rebels have Rhudaur, and have their Crusade for Upper Rhudaur nearby. A great party of dwarves was still rooted in the realms of the past glorious Kingdom of Arthedain, and with their capitol recently moved to Ettenmoors, the dwarves forces could only increase. And if left unchecked, they would increase tenfold in little time. Maybe asking the help of the elves of Cardolan, to secure the province in case of a sudden dwarfish attack ...

In the mean time, the kingdom of Gondolin was proving to be the worst worry he could have on his hands. The White Hand Tribe rebels have sent a few messages against the alliance of the west, and only a few replied; the humans of Unfettered (their allies) and the humans of Rohan have claimed, at least informally, that they would not stand for the atrocities this alliance has incurred to those they stumbled upon in their unchecked expansion. However, this was not enough.

Left unchecked so far, the Kingdom of Gondolin is quickly - and quite unstoppable, one might add - amassing huge armies, having as many provinces as the bottom 5 factions alltogether! And together with Maedhros, they have close to half of Middle Earth under their feet ... and they dont seem to be stopping, no matter what their honey words would make those crazy enough to believe them, belief.

Send word to the King of Angmar:
"Witch King of Angmar,

Are you really standing idle - instead of lending a hand to curve the expansion of this western alliance? There are easy pickings in west, in the realms of Maedhros and beyond. I am planning to claim Emyn Uial as mine - as it is how we discussed in the Summit. Afer I own it, would you be interested in receiving Emyn Uial from me, as a gift and as a platform to easily attack the Kingdom of Gondolin?"

Send word to the King of Rohan:
" King of Rohan,

I have retook the Gap of Isen from your treacherous hands. Come again in the Gap, and we will not stop there, and march on. Cross us again, and we will march on Rohan, and there will be nothing you can do to stop our armies. So thread carefully ... better in our acceptance than in our axes sight.

Ah, but alas, this isn't the only reason for this message. The scum of Maedhros were certainly planning an attack on you, if you wouldnt have offered that province to the Gods.

You got lucky, as the dwarves certainly will stop marching unto you and march south. But rest assured, if you do not support me in this endeavour, they will seek expansion in the east again. Help me stop them - help me against the dwarves of Maedhros, and whatever lands we grab off them, we will share evenly. March with me and with my ally, the just elves of Cardolan, and send your troops through the Redhorn Gate as allies, and I'll tell you a secret plan to quickly exterminate the dwarves ..."

The Broken Kingdoms:
(NPC nation)

News of an orcish force at the borders of the Broken Kingdoms have reached the ears of the king deep in the south, in Harondor. Orcs in Rhovanion sound as trouble ... and the question is, have the dragons of White Fanged Mountains finally double cross the dwarves, and allowed orcs to cross through their territories? Ahh, but the soldiers are so far away. Whom to ask for help guarding the borders? Granted, these are only rumors - as good intel is hard to find, especially when you are so far away from your own mainlands.

"Send a raven to the dragons of White Fanged Mountains, and ask them about the orcs whereabouts in their realms; if its true that orcs have been allowed to cross the province of Northern Rhovanion or not."

In the mean time, another message is to be sent to the Domnion of Rhun:
"King of the Dominion,

Your previous message to my ally was, as I feared, not suitable to the position you are now in. News of the loss of Gorgoroth to the Crusade of dwarves and their allies will soon reverberate all around Middle Earth, and your influence will lessen. Withdraw from Horse Plains and accept now a peace of 3 updates with all parties involved, and we will stop the march into your realms; refuse, and province after province your realms will fall.

I expect your reply to be swift, and smart."
----------
Send the above two messages.
In case of negative reply, march for Sutherland or Nurn (uncertainty) with the forces in Harondor

----------
In case of negative reply to the above message from the Broken Kingdoms, march with all forces in Sutherland or Nurn (uncertainty)


Druadain Hill Dwarves:
(NPC nation)

The Dwarves of Druadain Hill sent a small party of forces to join the Crusade as they crossed Cirith Ungol and reached the planes of Gorgoroth; the host fought in the battle, and upon the success, they returned home to the capitol. The armies of Druadain Hills are so small, and yet the managed to hold off; although, with the loss of Ithilien, they yet again are on the brink of extintion. The humans of the Unfettered really want to pick a bone with them, rather than co-exist in peace.

All the dwarves can do is to reinforce the garrisons in Anorien, and hope for the best. At least until they get more reinforcements ... and help.

----------


Elves of Cardolan:
(NPC nation)

Even if the elves of Cardolan have lost their prized capitol, the valiant forces of the smallish kingdom managed to catch off guard and rout the vanguard of Ecthelion, including him, by surprise-attacking Northern Cardolan. While it is only a consolation prize (if any), the war is still not over. A huge host of elves have ammased in Cardolan, and they are not easy to be removed; not even with the combined forces of Cardolan's elves and what remains in White Hand territories. But perhaps they can draw them away, and spread them away ... if they are to strike in multiple territories ....
