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 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.
Arnor is only playable on the following maps:
- Amon Sûl Fortress
- Amon Sûl
- Carn Dûm
- East-West Road
- Mitheitel spring
- Mountains of Angmar
- Mount Gram
- North Downs
- River Lhun
- Wasteland of Forochel
Strategic Points 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.
The camp has 6 plots with thin walls that do not allow units or defenses on top. There are 4 defense plots inside the camp where the player can build lone towers. The walls can be targeted and destroyed but not rebuilt.
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.

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.
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 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, 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 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, 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.

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 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 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.
