FROM THE OLD UPDATE... (in a chronological order):

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:
(RP nation: The sons of feanor, NS nation: 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!"

Move 720 troops from Lhun to The Shire, 200 from Numeriador to The Shire, and 200 to Lhun

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.
Ecthelion of Gondolin, Protector of the West*

Send a messenger to Rohan to initiate the dialogue.

"M' lord I bring a message from the elves of the west, the elves of Gondolin." Chanted Aragorn the world-renown hero, "Very well bring the messenger in!" Shouted Elfwine, the half-elf. "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"

Request an alliance with the Kingdom of Gondolin as soon as possible

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.
