INTRODUCTION

The North Downs, once the seat of a great Arthedain kingdom and populated by knights and kings until the fall of Fornost, is all that stands between the men of Bree-land in the south and the terrible forces of Angmar in the northeast. Once a great and glorious land, it is now settled by farmers, rangers, orcs and savage hillmen, and only traces of its former glory remain, guarded closely by the Rangers of Esteldin.

The landscape of the North Downs is quite varied, ranging from rugged, rocky canyons to scrub plains to gentle, rolling farmland. Goblins and Orcs are a near-constant theme here, but the denizens of the northeast are of a different sort.

AREAS: A detailed look at the different regions within the North Downs, including points of interest, mob types and crafting resources available there.

QUEST HUBS: A breakdown of the towns and camps where quests are initiated, including town services and important NPCs at each spot.

INSTANCES: A guide to the instanced areas of the North Downs, including Fornost, with tips and tricks to run this content smoothly.

DEEDS: A chart of the deeds available in the Lone-lands, including the best places to go to complete them.

REPUTATION: A look at gaining standing with the Rangers of Esteldin faction - how to get reputation, where to use it.
