Dale was a human city in north-eastern Rhovanion. It grew prosperous through the wealth of Erebor before being destroyed by Smaug. After the dragon was killed and the Battle of the Five Armies was won, the people of Lake-Town rebuilt Dale with the wealth of the Lonely Mountain. Bard the Bowman became the first king and the kingdom of Dale was an ally of Erebor. It was attacked again in the War of the Ring when Brand was king. After the war, the city was rebuilt once more and allied itself with the Reunited Kingdom that was ruled by King Elessar.
In Edain Mod, the units of Dale can be recruited by Erebor from the Dale Outpost, which costs 800 to build. It can be upgraded with a watchtower for defense, a well to heal injured allies, town houses to generate extra resources, and a barracks to produce units of Dale as well as Brand.
