Far Harad

GEOGRAPHY: Far Harad is a vast region, extending further south than the borders of the map. Sitting to the south of Near Harad, it is a land of inhospitable deserts, where sand is more common than soil, and yet where men dwell and live after a fashion.

HISTORY: Far Harad's population has seldom been united, though its men fought under the banner of the Black Serpent during the War of the Ring. Today, no longer subject to the Reunited Kingdom's dominion, its northern extent forms the Principality of Far Harad.

INHABITANTS: The indigenous desertfolk and swertings follow Haradrian traditions and are Men of Darkness. They are strong proponents of the Principality of Far Harad and hostile to the Men of the West. Among their most well-known inhabitants are the Champions of Far Harad, large black-skinned warriors who have been likened to half-trolls by those who have seen them in battle.


SETTLEMENTS: Athancaras, Anorlith, and Adabbara.

FORTS: None.

DEVELOPER'S NOTE: Athancaras ("city beyond"), Anorlith ("sun sand"), and Adabbara ("fiery home") have all been added for gameplay purposes and do not appear in the writings of Tolkien.
