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.
