"At its greatest Arnor included all Eriador, except the regions beyond the Lune, and the lands east of Greyflood and Loudwater, in which lay Rivendell and Hollin."
The Lord of the Rings, Appendix A, Annals of Kings and Rulers

Arnor is a defensive faction with a massive ring of walkable walls which can be equipped with many different extensions. This faction has 9 available building plots, the highest number of possible, but also has a high diversity of buildings that are necessary for a balanced game. Gondor and Arnor are available depending on the selected map.

On camp maps, Arnor camp is surrounded by a simple wall with a single entrance.

Arnor's units can take various formations and are focused primarily to close their lines and withstand the enemy. On settlements, Arnor can call the hero Cirdan and units from Lindon.

Arnor is a unique faction that is only accessible on certain maps. As a sub-faction of Gondor, its units and buildings are similar. In order to play as Arnor, select Gondor on certain maps and the game will start with an Arnor base instead of a Gondor one.

Strategic Points Edit

Castles Edit

Arnor has a heavily reinforced castle with a gate, 9 build plots, and many defensive buildings. It can be improved using the upgrades from the Stoneworker building. Postern gates, trebuchets and arrow towers can be built on the defense plots.

Camp Edit

Outposts  Edit

On the outposts Arnor can build an Imladris Stronghold which allows for multiple upgrades and the purchase of Glorfindel and Wind Riders. They can also build a regular outpost which can build the same buildings as a camp or castle.

Settlements Edit

On the settlements Arnor can build Farms that provide resources, towers of Lindon to recruit Cirdan or a Ranger camp where the player can recruit Aranarth and his Rangers.

Heroes Edit

Malbeth Edit

"Arvedui you shall call him, for he will be the last in Arthedain. Though a choice will come to the Dúnedain, and if they take the one that seems less hopeful, then your son will change his name and become king of a great realm. If not, then much sorrow and many lives of men shall pass, until the Dúnedain arise and are united again."
Appendix A: Gondor and the Heirs of Anarion

Malbeth the Seer was a Dúnedain of the North and a royal counselor of Arthedain that lived in the time of King Araphant and King Arvedui. He prophesied that Arvedui would be the last king of Arnor.

Carthaen Edit

Carthaen was an Arnorian general who defended the burial grounds at Cardolan against Angmar's forces. He failed and was turned into a wight, Karsh.

Araphant Edit

Araphant was the fourteenth king of Arthedain and the father of Arvedui. He forged a marriage alliance with Gondor and held off Angmar's assaults during his reign until his death.

Arvedui Edit

"Arvedui you shall call him, for he will be the last in Arthedain."
The Return of the King: Appendix A, Annals of the Kings and Rulers

Arvedui was the last king of Arthedain. He tried to claim Gondor's throne but failed. Arvedui fled the destruction of Fornost to the Icebay of Forochel. Later, he boarded a ship sent by Cirdan to rescue him. However, the ship sank, and Arvedui drowned. 

Gandalf Edit

"A wizard is never late, Frodo Baggins. Nor is he early. He arrives precisely when he means to. "
Gandalf

Gandalf was a Maia, one of the Istari sent to combat Sauron in the Third Age. He wandered across all of Middle Earth, helping others. Gandalf was killed by Durin's Bane, but returned as Gandalf the White. In this form, he led the free people against Sauron in the War of the Ring.


Bandobras Took Edit

"In the Battle of Greenfields, he charged the Goblin ranks. He swung his club so hard it knocked the Goblin King's head cleaned off and it sailed a hundred yards through the air and went down a rabbit hole. And thus the battle was won and the game of golf invented at the same time. "
Gandalf

Bandobras Took, also known as the Bullroarer, was a Hobbit of the Shire who defended it from a goblin attack. In the battle, he charged into the goblin lines and knocked the goblin chieftain's head off, sending it into a rabbit-hole a hundred yards away. In this way he won the battle and invented the game of golf at the same time.

Earnur Edit

Earnur was the last king of Gondor until Aragorn II. He led the armies of Gondor and the elves against Angmar and won. After becoming king, he was challenged multiple times by the Witch-King from Minas Morgul. He accepted the challenge and rode to Minas Morgul with a small escort. He was never seen again, and Gondor was left in the hands of the stewards.

Gwaihir Edit

"There came Gwaihir the Windlord, and Landroval his brother, greatest of all the Eagles of the North."
The Return of the King

Gwaihir, also known as Gwaihir the Windlord, was the greatest of the Great Eagles during the Third Age. He is best known for his deeds during the events of The Hobbit and the War of the Ring.

Heroes Edit

Cirdan

"But as for me, my heart is with the Sea, and I will dwell by the grey shores until the last ship sails. I will await you."
Cirdan

Cirdan was a Telerian shipwright who lived in Lindon. He was one of the oldest living beings in Middle-earth and was a guardian of the Elven Ring Narya, which he gave to Gandalf. Cirdan prepared the ship that sent the Ring-bearers into the West at the start of the Fourth Age.

Aranarth

Aranarth was the son of Arvedui. After the destruction of Fornost by Angmar, the kingdom of Arnor was no more, and so Aranarth became the first chieftain of the Dunedain until his death.

Glorfindel

"Yes, you saw him for a moment as he is upon the other side: one of the mighty of the Firstborn. He is an Elf-lord of a house of princes."
Gandalf

Glorfindel was one of the Eldar of the First Age who was killed by a balrog in the Fall of Gondolin. He was later sent back to Middle-earth by the Valar and lived in Imladris. He participated in the battle to destroy Angmar and predicted the Witch-King's manner of death in the War of the Ring.
