Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.

It has been more than 3,000 years since the Dark Lord Sauron threatened Middle-earth. In his absence, however, there has been no lack of warfare and death across the land; in the year 1300 of the Third Age, 1700 years ago, the Dark Lord’s greatest servants reappeared in Middle-earth. The Nazgûl, most powerful and foremost of Sauron’s servants, build the evil kingdom of Angmar. Their leader and the most powerful weapon, the Witch-king, terrorizes not only the lands of the North, but all of Middle-earth from his fortress of Gundabad.

300 years later, after destroying the great kingdom of Arnor, the Nazgûl were forced south, back into the dark lands of their home, Mordor. For a few hundred more years, fighting continues, and they have established another new stronghold in Mirkwood: Dol Guldur.

It has been long since Gundabad and its hosts have threatened the Free Peoples of Middle-earth. Over the years, however, evil has once again crept back into the land. A Shadow once again rules the land of Angmar.

Now, with the lands of Rohan and Gondor to the South at war with Mordor, who will challenge the dominion of the Dark Lord’s forces in the North? Two great places of evil stand poised to take over the lands of the North and assert their master’s dominion of all of Middle-earth; Gundabad and Dol Guldur threaten to destroy all who would stand in the way.

Who will rise to the challenge? What heroes would answer the call to stand against the coming Darkness?

This post is OOC, just so y'all know! ;)

The story will take place in either one of two places: The western side of the Misty Mountains (Angmar), or the Eastern side (Dol Guldur). The route that will be taken can happen either one of two ways; you can attempt to take on the challenge of destroying both evils at the same time, or take them on one at a time.

This is MY TAKE on the War in the North. Tolkien only mentions it briefly in his writings; there is no one take on the War that is set in stone. There have been several attempts by video-games and other sources to try and cover what happens. My take on it, however, is somewhat different than all the others. I'm taking what I liked from all those sources and combining it with my own opinion of how I believe the war went. If you want to know what my inspiration/sources come from, check out the Lord of the Rings wiki or the following video-games: The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-earth II, The Lord of the Rings Online, and The Lord of the Rings: War in the North.

I don't know if anybody else is a big Lord of the Rings lore-master like me; I'm going to be trying to do my best to not do something in conflict with Tolkien's existing universe. If I see something that DOES conflict with confirmed canon/lore, I will point it out to the person who posted the conflict and try to resolve it. However, if there ARE other people who are well versed in the universe, feel free to point out any errors I make! I enjoy criticism and want to learn from my mistakes!

Also, as a last note on this post, I will be making additional information about the story I have in mind available as time goes on. I know we have a lot going on in the site right now, and I've got a lot I feel that needs to be shared before we get started with this awesome journey!

Setting
This is going to be where the story will be taking place. Your characters can start off in different locations, but these are the places where most of the action will ultimately be happening!

Bree:
Three days have passed since the occurrence of several peculiar things: the coming and going of four hobbits, strange men hooded in black murdering folks, and Rangers coming in... and it all happened at the very same inn! Perhaps it is a sign that the rumors from the east are true... that a darkness is rising once again! Maybe it's just what most people believe: just a series of strange, random events. Little do the poor citizens know that it truly is a sign of the coming storm...

Dale/Erebor:
It's been 60 years since the resettlement of both Dale and Erebor, and there has been peace through all the land! However, a few days ago a black rider came to Erebor bearing a message from the Dark Lands of Mordor. The rider asked for an alliance between the Dwarves and Sauron himself! Fortunately, the Dwarves of Erebor had no intentions of choose the path of evil, and turned him away. The implications of this decision have yet to be discovered...
