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, long before the current Late Third Age setting of the Lord of the Rings Online, 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.
So what's in store for the player venturing into the North Downs? What's all this noise about Fornost and Dol Dinen? Where should you be questing at level 25? How do you earn standing with he Rangers of Esteldin? All these questions and more are answered in Ten Ton Hammer's Guide to the North Downs.
