    - four significant layouts together with DOL GULDUR
    - A 16" x 20" full-color insert, part number 1 depicts settings from THE LORD OF THE earrings, part #2 maps out WOODMENTOWN, the HILL OF SORCERY, and a HOUSE-LORD settlement

    From the Undeeps to the previous wooded area highway, around the conflict undeniable referred to as DAGORLAD, Southern Mirkwood is a land cursed by means of the Necromancer of DOL GULDUR.

    INTRODUCTION TO SOUTHERN RHOVANION

    Long in the past the world of Southern Rhovanion earned the typical identify of South Wilderland. For regardless of a number of settlements of guys through the years, Nature has continually reigned excellent during this sector of woodland and plains. All who input Southern Rhovanion, no matter if to trip or to reside out their lives, needs to prepared themselves for day by day encounters with the whims and forces of Nature. each civilization that has made its domestic the following - even if the primitive Beijabar, the savage Orcs of Dol Guldur, or the stately Northmen less than Vidugavia - all have needed to locate how you can make their rugged methods of existence reply to the larger forces of Nature.

    Growing issues have specific value during this zone ruled by way of the woodland as soon as known as Greenwood the nice. In each nook of the wooded realm Nature is grasp, and to reside right here conveniently one needs to methods to establish and assemble the worthwhile vegetation transforming into wild and unfastened and, simply as vital, to spot, steer clear of, and use whilst priceless the effective toxic crops Nature strews simply as generously in one's pathway in the course of the wooded area and the plains.

    There as soon as used to be an afternoon while the wooded area bloomed attractive and prairie vegetation sweetly scented The Plains of Talath Harroch. There as soon as used to be an afternoon whilst the Fives sang to the seasons, and while Nature appeared calm and forgiving in her method. yet these days are long past - might be now not eternally, yet during this 12 months of T.A. 1640 few population of Southern Rhovanion anticipate lifestyles to turn into any easier.

    During those years of restoration after the nice Plague, which hit Southern Rhovanion simply as challenging because it hit Gondor, humans were thrown again upon the severe assets of the wildlife. the elements has became harsher over the past few many years, and with the Plague has come disease from many instructions. Vestiges of the Plague upward push back one of the voters of Southern Rhovanion; possibly because of the a number of refugees who come the following from different afflicted parts to reside or die, based upon what destiny holds in shop for them. The Plague struck humankind extra violently than it struck Nature, and those that stay in Southern Rhovanion at the moment are greater than ever on the mercy in their environment.

    No one travels or lives within the sector with out falling lower than the shadow of Dol Guldur. whereas merely the wisest have any inspiration of why this mountain sheds one of these ghastly spell, each one is aware that from it emanates the stench of evil and the shadow of loss of life. so much hardships that befall one in Southern Rhovanion may be traced again in a single means or different to the impact of that accursed craggy peak.

    Yet conflicts have arisen that it appears don't have anything to do with the Evil of that mountain. Southern Rhovanion, virtually due to its pastoral heritage, has develop into the warring flooring of forces past its bounds. the good Kings of Gondor - of their quest for empire and the subjugation of the Easterling tribes -- have introduced consistent clash and bloodshed to a land which was little greater than a hall for wandering folks. Few nice wars originate in the minds and hearts of Southern Rhovanians, yet many take place upon their hills and plains, forcing them to take in palms to guard and shield no matter what houses and assets stay between them. it is a nation below siege - no longer amidst conflict this present day, yet continually below the omnipresent possibility that conflict or pestilence, drought or deluge, may wipe out every little thing the next day.
