Arnor is a major Human power that resides North of Lorderon and along the southern Border of The Empire. Once the second most powerful part of the massive Empire of Numeron it was devestated during the conflict with Teutons and the rebels and became independant following the Downfall of Numeron. The Kingdom of Arnor is beset by many problems but the main issue has been their nearly constant conflict with their northern neighbor in the form of The Empire of whom constantly attacks it.

Arnor was once the northen half of the Empire of Numeron , but after the Destruction of the Numenor it has been gradually worn down until it sits today barely a shadow of it's former self. Once it stood as the most populous area of the Area of the Empire of Numeron with only Westros having more population and political might, but it lost significant numbers during the Downfall of Numeron and has never truly recovered. Arnor maintains one of only two remaining Numenorian families in Europe, and are very die hard in their defence of what they see as the founding principles of Numeron.

Alongside being a former member of the Empire of Numeron the Kingdom of Arnor is one of only two areas left in Europe that maintains a majority population of Atlantians. Their population is the largest in Europe, and with the threat of destruction the Kingdom of Arnor remains the greatest hope for the Atlantian people to return to their former power. Inside of Arnor exist seven Numenorian Houses of varrying size, but under Arnor before the Invasion of The Empire there were well over forty Numenorian Houses but their numbers were abolutely devestated leaving only seven left and only one of the Triumverate alive. The Atlantians are the larger of the overall atlantian legacy that remains in Arnor now after the Numenorian losses.

Arnor stands as one of the three Kingdoms in Europe that worship the Atlantian Pantheon of which they continue to do since they started centuries before the departure from Atlantis. This worship is yet another reason for the diferences between Arnor and their neighbors as they are distinctly the only one who believes in the Atlantian Pantheon. In this way Arnor is also the host to some of the oldest temples of the Atlantian Pantheon in all of Europe, and for this reason the Temple of Fornost is almost unaimously known as the center of the religion in the continent. Alongside the temples the Kingdom of Arnor also holds many of the ancient remaining relics of the old island of Atlantis and for this reason is further more importance to the religion.

Arnor was founded as a Kingdom within the Empire of Numeron during the intiital growth of the empire into the European continent. Arnor was known early on as a more rustic area within the Empire of Numeron, but it gained immense growth in population as the continent of Atlantis was destroyed. Following this there was a large growth in intellectualism in the city of Fornost but the western areas stayed more rustic and non Atlantian in terms of how they went about running the cities. During the Downfall of Numeron the Kingdom of Arnor was forced to be unable to assist the rebels as they fought due to large scale assaults by the Teutons to the north, of whom had been tricked into fighting against Arnor by the menipulations of the Witch King. Despite this the Kingdom of Arnor became the center of the rebellion against the Dark Numenorians and would end the conflict as the capital of the Empire of Numeron following the destruction of Tail Jana. The Kingdom of Arnor would attempt to regrow the Empire of Numeron but found no connection in land to their old western lands or to the main remains of the Empire in Gondor, and Umbar and for this reason had little success in this regard. Becoming its own Kingdom it became stretched thing fighting off the Empire who had gained immense lands and population and was now no longer a weak barbarian lands as was the case during the Downfall of Numeron. Arnor would finally collapse and finally be destroyed when The Empire and Valeria both attacked the nation and splitting their forces they were unable to hold against the massive forces attacking them.

History

Main Article : Timeline of Arnor

Pre-Numenorians

Arnor was a sparse and fertile area that was largley inhabited by roving bands of hunter gathers for the centuries before the coming the Empire of Numeron. During this period there was very little settlements in the region, and the only real civilization was horrifyingly enough in the form of the Trollocs of the Forest and the small Dwarven Hold of Dun Garek. The Trollocs were on the decline in the region but there numbers were still extremely high in the area to the point that they had basically caused the distinct lack of human settlement in Pre-Numenorian Arnor.

Exodus of Atlantis
``Atlantis was a land of joy, and at first you saw nothing of the such in the European lands. Forests filled with monsters, and dangers around all corners you couldn`t help but long to return to Atlantis. As time went by the wealth and power of the European lands made all want to see what had changed in the European lands.``
-Unknown Numenorian Scribe

With the port cities taken over, they loyalists began building massive ships, and they gathered huge resources and numbers to them. The moment a ship was completed it was sent out, and the loyalists were swiftly sheltered to the ports of their European holds. These first holds were at the areas of Gondor , Dol Amroth and Umbar , and for this reason we see the most Atlantean looking architecture in Gondor and Dol Amroth. After months of this the loyalist Emperor left the island on the final ship and watched the island of Atlantis disapear in the horizeon.

Province in Numeron

Main Article : Empire of Numeron

It wasn't until the coming of the Atlantians following the exodus of Atlantis that the region of Arnor, and in that way Fornost would become settled. The coming Numenorians were a very industrious people, and their expansion brought them northward from the port of Umbar and their most populated areas in Gondor, and Westros towards Germany. As the Atlantians move northward they founded many cities throughout Arnor, with the principle city of the region becoming known as Fornost.

Golden Age

With the founding of Fornost the region of Arnor became enveloped in a lengthly golden age. All of the major cities, and settlements in the region were founded during this time, and the armies of Arnor grew to such a point that they became the close rival of Gondor, and Umbar in power.

Downfall of Numeron

Main Article : Downfall of the Numeron

During the Downfall of Numeron the lands of Arnor were during the earliest day split into half, with much of the northern half that were majoirty germans rebelling from the Empire, and forming the beggining of what would one day be the Empire. With the northern half of Arnor now gone from Numeron the lands of Arnor were faces with an internal problem in the form of Braizen Highven IV. who had seeminlgy lost his mind, and was destroying the Empire from within. It was during this chaotic period that huge elements of Arnor begin to Following this the lands of Arnor were devestated in a series of increasingly deadly cullings ordered by Braizen Highven IV meant to weaken the rebelious elements of Arnor.

Spawn of Sauron

Spawn of Sauron

With open war now nearly on the doorstep the region of Arnor begin to show signs that it was ready to join the Westros region in open rebellion against Braizen. It was during this time that Braizen unleashed the spawn of Sauron on the people of Central Europe. The Spawn of Sauron spent a majority of its time moving from rebellious city to rebellious city, and during its time in Arnor was responsible for destroying dozens of towns, villages, and two major cities. Eventually the Spawn of Sauron was stopped and destroyed leaving the armies of Arnor preparing to go south but again they were stoppd this time by the coming of the Teutons of whom rebelled all across northern Arnor. For the remainder of the Downfall of Numeron the elements of Arnor were forced to resist the Teutons and unable to assist the main forces of loyalists in the Numeron center of Westros.

Second Empire of Numeron

Following the Downfall of Numeron the remnents of the Empire of Numeron attempted to find their place in the world with the non-Numenorian and Atlantian sections of the Empire quickly declaring independance the core regions would call a large summit at Minus Tirith where they would form the Second Empire of Numeron. The Second Empire of Numeron quickly after its founding became more of an idea then an actual physical nation as when the Ironborn begin to rise in the Iron Islands and contact slipped away between the Gondor/Umbar/Taraban southern elements and the Arnor/Lombard northern elements the second Empire of Numeron would collapse.

Kingdom of Arnor

Arnor at indepdance

Following the end of the Second Empire of Numeron the Kingdom of Arnor would begin its plans for recreating the Empire of Numeron on its own first making movement to consolidate its holdings in its core regions. At its independance the Kingdom of Arnor was named a Kingdom but its control was that of an Empire as it controlled several nations beneath it, and controlled huge tracts of land. Despite the fact that it had lost huge numbers during the Downfall of the Numeron its cities were still huge centers of population, and their were signs that it might be easy to expand north. For all of this hope the leadership of Arnor could not see how powerful The Empire had become, and were unable to antisipate the vast array of armies that The Empire would throw against Arnor in an attempt to weaken them. ===Arnor Invasion of Weerhousen=== Main Article : Arnor, Weerhousen

The Orange Death

"How many valiant men, how many fair ladies, breakfast with their kinfolk and the same night supped with their ancestors in the next world! The condition of the people was pitiable to behold. They sickened by the thousands daily, and died unattended and without help. Many died in the open street, others dying in their

houses, made it known by the stench of their rotting bodies. Consecrated churchyards did not suffice for the burial of the vast multitude of bodies, which were heaped by the hundreds in vast trenches, like goods in a ships hold and covered with a little earth."
-Unknown Atlantian Scribe

The Glory of Arnor would continue to fade following the disasterous invasion of Weerhousen when following a severe outbreak of plague on its western provinces. It is speculated that half of the people of western Arnor were killed during the outbreak, and the major fortress city of Malgheim was left nearly deserted. On top of this it caused the lands of the Night Watch to be closed to them for many years which created a dramatic decline in their economic situation, and also led to to the loss of communication between Arnor and many of their southern allies. With the loss of Malgheim as a reasonable defence, The Empire became once more openly hostile to them and despite the fact that the southern parts of The Empire were also hit by the epedemic the lands of Arnor were far more damaged and thus the lands of The Empire were primed to become aggresive. With the severe losses they had suffered they were unable to retaliate as they once had which made The Empire more bold, and eventually led to the War in Arnor, which would lead to the now decayed state that Arnor finds itself in.

War with the Empire

Lorderon-Valerian-Arnor War

Main Article : Munchen War

Lorderon-Valerian-Arnor War
It was like this constant ache in my head the entire time I was in Forks. Something felt wrong but I could just never place my finger on the reason behind it. While I lived this fake life I just kept living within my dreams.
Leighton Zegers Cover1
If we could arrange ourselves closer to the southern people then we would finally have a pathway away from the Teutons grasp.
Leighton Zegers

The Empire of Valeria had for generations fallen under the sphere of influence of The Empire and under King Trance Zegers they had sought a way out of this and thus had worked diplomatically to move closer to the Kingdom of Arnor forging relationships through marriage with the Arnorians including most notably Martivian Zegers III., and Illiana Hemsworth of whom were married creating an alliance between Arnor and Valeria of which led to many other ideas for alliances including the one that would change the entire region when Leighton Zegers would plan a marriage between House Zegers and House Menathil from the Numenorian Kingdom of Lorderon. Following the secret agreement of betrothal between Calia Menathil and Kevin Zegers it would be Arturas Zegg who would leave the capital of Valeria in order to accompany his younger half brother Kevin of whom is planning to travel southward in order to fufill this betrothal and in this journey Kevin is planning to become a true man, and thus on the begging of his brother's departure he is going to travel by boat to Lorderon leaving Kevin to travel alone on the road. His departure from Munchen is met by great sadness by his family outside of his father of whom is shown to have little love for him, but his fathers wife Nycissisa is shown to be very loving towards him. Following his and Kevin's departure from Munchen they are escorted to the Goet capital port city of Tilmeer where Kevin will take a boat to Noveria and then make his way southward on his own while Arturas will go by boat straight to Lorderon. Saying goodbye to his brother Kevin it is shown that Kevin continues to be a funny young man with a strong sense of loyalty to his family and the two siblings depart as best friends. Remaining in Tilmeer for several weeks knowing how long it will take for Kevin to reach Lorderon trying to get there by land all the way to Riverun he grows close to several members of the Goet noble family in the form of House Tinglestad.

The entire time I was riding I was just so excited about the possibilities. Before I left Valeria it seemed the entire world was open to me. I loved life, and it was only after returning that I came to understand that my ride to Lorderon was the best moment of my life
Kevin Zegers

Kevin would travel by horse on his own as his first test, and he would be tested many times on the road. He made his first stop in Westbridge, and during his brief stop there he made notes about the harshness of the leading House Malfoy, and planned to address this when he had the chance one day. He would go further south into the Riverlands, and while he was crossing a bridge he was stopped by Highwaymen who wanted him to pay a toll. The leader would try and stop the hustle when he noticed the powerful sword carried by the young man and feared he was some kind of noble, but his men saw it differently and wanted the sword for themselves. A scuffle would break out and after a brief fight Kevin killed the bandits two men, and took the bandit as his prisoner. He and the bandit would travel together and reached the port of Riverrun where Kevin prepared to let the bandit go, but instead he said that his name was Tanden Snow a bastard from Lucerne and he wanted to remain under Kevin`s service until he wasn`t needed anymore. Kevin would accept the offer and together they traveled to Lorderon together.

Natalie Portmane3
He didn`t care a thing about who I was, and I guess that was the first time someone had ever just ignored me being lowborn. I knew he was a highborn, and he knew I wasn`t. I could never understand why he cared so much, but I wasn`t going to question too much why a handsome prince wanted me.
Natalie Portmane

Kevin Zegars arrival in Lorderon was greeted by the entire royal court of Lorderon as they wanted a strong marriage between Kevin and one of their daughters to cement a relationship between House Zegars, and House Menathil. While he was getting introduced to the noble family he was escorted by Natalie Portmane to his room, and they would talk for some time becoming friends. As he knew noone outside of Arturas Flowers he and Natalie grew very close, and she came to love the kindness that Kevin showed her and the fact that he didn`t look down on her for her lowborn status. Her relationship with Kevin was one that quickly grew into love, and through this love her family and his saw lots of oppurtunities.

Natalie knew I loved her but that didn`t seem to matter to any of my family. I could feel her slipping away from me each day and it made me scared beyond anything I had ever felt before.
Kevin Zegars

Natalie and Kevin grew so much in love that they together begin discussing the possibility of marriage, and Kevin at first saw little hope after sending a raven to his brother and hearing back that their was little chance the marriage would be approved of. When he told Natalie about this she was beyond sad, and they drifted apart for a time. Without Natalie he didn't feel like himself and thus he left the city and went home where he hoped to convince his parents and brother about the logic of his decision. Despite the fact that she was a lowborn Kevin had talked his parents into ignoring this and allowing him to marry her a feat that was difficult due to how stubborn his family was. When he returned to Lorderon he was so excited to tell Natalie about what he had accomplished for them but he found that she had changed somewhat in his time gone from loving him to caring little about his presence. It would take time but he would follow her and discover her meeting with Chris Hemsworth and in that moment he knew what had changed.

Natalie Portmane7
As so many wars before it the war in Munchen was started over a beautiful women.
Arthas Menathil

It was during this time that fate would have it Natalie began to see Chris Hemsworth the Prince of Arnor and a man of incredible importance. Chris had taken to the role of traveling with the major trading envoys between Arnor, and on one of these trips he met up with Natalie. Eventually the two fell in love which caused Keven Zegers to slowly become overcome with hatred towards Natalie. Where once there was affection, there was now only malice. Natalie was alone in her room one night when Kevin who she barely thought of anymore with the same lust and love as before entered silently into her room. Kevin begged to know what she was doing, and why she would hurt him in this manner. She knew she couldn't give him the anwsers that he wanted so she attempted to appease the situation by delaying the inevitable and she denied that their was anything romantic between herself and Chris. When the next day he followed her when she went to meet with Chris he watched as the two had sex, and thus he knew that she was a liar. Eventually after numerous confrontations with Natalie, and Chris the situation boiled over. At first Kevin attempted to find ways to have Chris removed but he quickly realized that he couldn't beat him in a fight and he was also constantly gaurded by his personal gaurd. With this out of the way of possibility his anger now completely focused on Natalie Portmane of whome he begin to have increasingly violent, and sadistic dreams about.

Natalie Portmane LARGE
I could no longer justify why she remained his. He was a lesser man, and everyone knew that. They all whispered to me that he was tricking her in some way. I knew not what sort of Magi he controlled but I would save her from her torment if it killed me.
Kevin Zegars

Kevin in his desperation was tricked by many of the nobles of Lorderon of whom told him lies that Natalie was in fact not interested in Chris but was infact being tricked into the action by some kind of Magi. At first not belieing this and being lost in sadness, he became so depressed that the lies begin to ring true to him. He started watching her during the night while she was intimate with Chris, and as the madness of his depression grew he came to create many signs that she did in fact hate Chris and longed for him to save her. He would wait weeks until Chris left to return to Arnor where he was getting permission to marry Natalie, and he prepared his plan to rescue Natalie from the prison he now truly believed she was living in. The night finally came for Kevin and he tried to sneak out but Arturas was awoken by Kevin sneaking out of their room and following him he sees he is returning to Natalie's room where he watches from the window as Kevin has already got inside the room and is hiding in the closest and he watches Natalie speak to her brother Jaime about her love for Chris Hemsworth and then following Jaime leaving Kevin comes out of the closest and while at first begging her to love him. She was so shocked that he was there and the madness that he was spewing that she called out for Chris to save her, and this tore away at much of the lies that Kevin had built up causing him to lash out at Natalie, and following this everything devolves very quickly and Kevin tries to rape her but before he can, and before Arturas is forced to shoot his own brother with a crossbow to stop him Jaime returns and the two fight nearly killing Kevin before Arturas comes in and saves Kevin dragging him away after locking Jaime in the closet. Kevin would be carried by Arturas into the canals beneath the city where he would recuperate his strength and together the two would leave the city. Back with Natalie the situation was chaotic with Lianna Menathil convinsing the King that this was an act of war and thus triggering the war between Lorderon and Valeria.

Running Away

At 19 she ran away from Lorderon following the attack by Kevin Zegers. She arrived in Arnor nearly two weeks after she left and when she arrived she was greeted at the gates by the pained face of Chris Hemsworth who on one hand was thrilled that she had come to him but on the other knew that the reason behind it wasn't going to be a good one.

When Kevin arrived back in Munchen he was absolutely covered in blood, and was clasping the ruined pieces of Natalie's clothes. He went on a long tirade about what happened, and realizing what he had atleast attempted to do, and hearing him laugh about how he was going to get away with it was too much for Emily.

The War Begins

Main Article : Munchen War

KEVINS Crossbow

Kevin's Crossbow would set off war between Valeria and its two powerful neighbors.

Madness brought us to the brink of destruction. Two nations fighting eachother over the madness of a single boy. A boy who remained silent and pathetic throughout the entire conflict.
Chris Hemsworth

Following the attempted rape of Natalie Portmane, and the blaten assault on the citizens of Lorderon it was the position of both Arnor, and Lorderon that the Empire of Valeria owed an apology to them. When diplomats from Lorderon, and Arnor arrived in Munchen in order to hear the apology of the Empire of Valeria everything went according to plan as Scot Zegars would meet with them and attempted to smooth things over. Promises of financial restitutions were made, and the diplomats were prepared to leave when Kevin Zegars stormed into the room and shot the Lorderon diplomat through the chest with a crossbow before several of his cronies stepped in as well and killed the remainder of the diplomatic envoy. Scotty would repremand his brother and the cronies of Kevin were arrested, but the damage was completely too much for talk. The moment news reached Lorderon, and Arnor of the massacre they would mass their troops and call upon their allies to assist them in liberating Valeria from the madness of Kevin Zegars. 

The campaign was filled with piss and vigor, and noone seemed to notice that there was a really dangerous element in the form of what side The Empire took. If The Empire decided they wanted to support their ally even though they were wrong, then this could get out of hand really quickly.
Jonas Hemsworth

Chris Hemsworth would lead the army of western Arnor into the conflict, and they would quickly put the city of Munchen under siege as they bypassed the other villages and forts of the Empire of Valeria. As this happened the forces of Lorderon moved up the Rhine and would land on the southern side of Munchen where they too would join the siege. The two forces laid down heavy artillery against the defenders, and Scotty realized very quickly they were going down if things kept moving in this direction.

The Goet Betrayal
Ludgera Tinglestad Cover1
I understand completely the decision I am making here son. I have chosen your survival over your love. I could not sleep at night if I made the decision to join your family in what is most likely going to be death. If my decision to side with those who will keep your life means that I lose your love, then honestly I can sleep softly at night.
Erwin Tinglestad

Having returned to Valeria through Goet it is Arturas Zegg that is forced to deal with the reprecutions of the arrival of the Kingdom of Lorderon in the southern region of Goet and this forces him to begin planning for the defence of the Kingdom. His planning comes to an end when he summoned to the council room of the King of Goet and told by the King that the Kingdom of Goet will not be marshaling its troops for the defence of Munchen, and will allow the Lordeorn forces to cross their lands without stopping them. Unwilling to let his family languish without helping them he goes to leave the room but is arrested by the Goet Palace Guard in order to make sure that he doesn't leave the capital and travel to Munchen where members of House Tinglestad worry that he will die alongside the remainder of his family. Shocked over what is happening Erwin Tinglestad enters the room and reveals that he has sided against the Kevin Zegers forces and for this has chosen to imprison Arturas in order to protect him from death.

Frenlick Assault of Valeria
Er-Lhossia Iallril Cover
This is what centuries of hatred looks like. We have never forgotten. We have never stopped looking for our vengeance. Its taken years upon years, but here it is.
Robin Farrin

Sencing the weakness of the Valerian Empire it would be Tari-Frenlin Farrin the Monarch of the Republic of Frenlick that would go before the Senate of Frenlick and put forth the plan of action to attack the Kingdom of Valeria and free the Atlantians of the Kingdom as well as take control of the coasts of the Kingdom. Following the agreement of the Senate of Frenlick it would Robin Farrin would follow his fathers command when he joined his older brother Tur-Grondlin in invading the Kingdom of Valeria of which was the northern element of the Empire of Valeria. The Frenlick made landfill around the Atlantian cultural capital of Ae'lehn where it would be joined by the rebellious Atlantians of the region who were extremely supportive of the Frenlick invasion. During this initial invasion one of the most important of the early battles was the Battle of Castle Ventellia where the forces of the Frenlick Elur Er-Neithril Iallril of whom alongside her daughter Er-Lhossia Iallril would lead a dozen Elur and sixty Frenlick Knights and a thousand men at arms into a sneak assault on the castle which allowed the only land route movement north into Valeria. during the events of the Lorderon-Arnor-Valerian War, and during the fighting they would take the Valerian capital of Thornstall.

Coming of The Empire

Malflovia Cover1
The City was in ruins as we had been rocked by catapult fire for nearly a month before we were relieved. The worst part was that he didn't even care. No apology no nothing. He proved to me that day that he was useless.
Scotty Zegars

Following her failure to gain the support of both Ebonheart, and Trasnet it would be Leighton riding out of the walls of Trasnet Castle with tears in her eyes over her failure, but as she rides down the road with her personal guards she realizes that she cannot return to Munchen with failure as if she does they will lose the war and her brother will die, and thus she makes a decision to find assistance even if it means going outside of Valeria. Leighton having left Trasnet made her way down the road when her guard says they stop as they are almost at the city, and riding slowing over the hill she spots the massive city stretched out in front of them. Riding through the gates of the city it is revealed to be Nuln the capital of Austria and as they ride they make their way to the palace where they reach and upon reaching she demands to see the elector count. The chapter ends with Leighton woken in her room by a knock at the door and opening the door she is met by Fulco Troy of whom leads her to the palace chamber where meeting with Priam Troy they discuss that Austria will support Valeria if the Arnor-Lorderon alliance attacks them, and hearing this Leighton realizes that she has saved her brother and as Priam discusses the rallying of the army of Austria she leaves the palace re-joining her guards as they make there way back to Munchen. Two weeks into the siege though a messenger arrived at the camp of the army of Arnor from The Empire that dictated that in two days they would arrive and clear the battlefield if necessary. Chris's scouts reported that the force incoming was far larger then theirs and that news was coming in that Thedas, Tevinter, and other Kingdoms of Thedas were moving to mobilize as well. Realizing that the alliance had no hope of defeating those forces in this manner he ordered the general retreat and sent word to Lorderon's forces to retreat as well. Before he left he approached the walls and attempted to get Kevin to fight him in a duel but when that proved hopeless he simply threatened Kevin Zegars before leaving the young prince horribly embarrassed. 

Valeria Dungeon
The City was in ruins as we had been rocked by catapult fire for nearly a month before we were relieved. The worst part was that he didn't even care. No apology no nothing. He proved to me that day that he was useless.
Scotty Zegars

Inside Munchen the damage was extensive and the forces of Valeria were badly damaged emotionally by the weakeness shown by Kevin Zegars. Scotty Zegars over the incident was forced to exile his brother Kevin - of whom he would not speak to again after this day - to the eastern side of Valeria in the form of the fort of Valeria. On top of exiling his brother he rounded up much of Kevin's friends and supporters from the capital of Munchen and throughout Valeria and had them judged on their guilt. Many of them were found guilty and sent to the dungeons of Munchen where they would toil till they were dead. It was this last act that burned Kevin the most as he didn't particularly care about Munchen, and wanted to get away from his siblings anyway but it was the loss of his servents that sent him over the edge. Despite the peace treaty between the forces of Valeria, and Lorderon the war would continue in the north of Valeria as a part of the agreement had been that the Valerian-Frenlick conflict would be left to be resolved by the two combatants.

Breathing Again

At present the Kingdom of Arnor is in steep decline following the devestation that it took during the War in Arnor, and although that was a long time ago, they have never truly recovered from it.

Arnor is suffering greatly also because of being cutoff from its main ally in Gondor , after the fall of Gallheim , and the loss of the only means through the Redrick Mountains.

Renewed Border Conflict

With a brief lull in the fighting the leadership of King Jonas Hemsworth went about fortifying their positions in Arnor with a heavy concentration of fortifying Fornost from any kind of attack.

Krost

Battle of Krost

Main Article : Battle of Krost

The Battle of Krost was a battle fought betweent he rangers of Liam Hemsworth and an Austrian army attempting to destroy the village of Krost.

After noticeing the camped Empire army the forces of Liam Hemsworth arrived in Krost and along with many men of the village fortified the village for the coming attack.

When the Empire troops arrived in the village they ran blindly into the houses and dozens were killed silently upon entering the fortified houses by waiting soilders. With the entire army inside the village the rangers and villagers opened up with their archers from every roof top in the village. The Empire troops were caught in the open, and with every house a veritable fortress they were slowly massacred over the course of a few hours by the stuck in defenders. A small force of maybe 150 were able to retreat out of the original force of nearly 1500.

Demographics

Ethnicity

Alongside being a former member of the Empire of Numeron the Kingdom of Arnor is one of only two areas left in Europe that maintains a majority population of Atlantians. Their population is the largest in Europe, and with the threat of destruction the Kingdom of Arnor remains the greatest hope for the Atlantian people to return to their former power. Inside of Arnor exist seven Numenorian Houses of varrying size, but under Arnor before the Invasion of The Empire there were well over forty Numenorian Houses but their numbers were abolutely devestated leaving only seven left and only one of the Triumverate alive. The Atlantians are the larger of the overall atlantian legacy that remains in Arnor now after the Numenorian losses.

Religion

Arnor stands as one of the three Kingdoms in Europe that worship the Atlantian Pantheon of which they continue to do since they started centuries before the departure from Atlantis. This worship is yet another reason for the diferences between Arnor and their neighbors as they are distinctly the only one who believes in the Atlantian Pantheon. In this way Arnor is also the host to some of the oldest temples of the Atlantian Pantheon in all of Europe, and for this reason the Temple of Fornost is almost unaimously known as the center of the religion in the continent. Alongside the temples the Kingdom of Arnor also holds many of the ancient remaining relics of the old island of Atlantis and for this reason is further more importance to the religion.

Economy

Goverment

Triumverate

When the independant Kingdom of Arnor was first founded the Kingdom was a Triumverate with the Three main families all having one King, and through each of these Kings was the overall control of the Kingdom held.

This system allowed all three houses to have a say, and since each was from a specific area of the Kingdom, this meant that all were equally represented. The Triumverate failed when during the War in Arnor, two of the three Houses were destroyed leaving only House Hemsworth to man the King's role over a much diminished Kingdom.

Beside the throne of the King sits two empty thrones which represent the two lost Houses of Arnor, and the site of the two empty thrones is said to still weigh heavily on Jonas Hemsworth who can clearly recall sitting beside the two former powerful houses.

House Hemsworth

Main Article : House Hemsworth

House Hemsworth

House Hemsworth are the heriditary rulers of the Kingdom of Arnor, and are arayed throughout the entire leadership of the Kingdom of Arnor. They are one of only two families that remain trueNumenor, and this alone makes them very powerful in the Kingdom. As the power ofArnor has dramatically decreased since the conflict with The Empire , the power of the Hensworth family has decreased with it. The family took significant losses during the War, and since the conflict are finding the position of Arnor one that is more and more impossible to maintain.

This Numenorian bloodline also is a major source of conflict between Arnor and The Empire who still to this day harbors a lot of hatred towards the Numenorians over the destruction they believe they caused during the Downfall of the Numenor. House Hemsworth remains one of the most numerous and powerful of the Numenorians of north central Europe and in this way they are a very important house in terms of the legacy of the Empire of Numeron.

The family first appeared during the twilight days of the Empire of Numenor , and although even in that horrible time the Hemsworth's became known for their kindness. After the death of the Prince of Arnor, the Emperor of Numenor in one of his more sane moves decided to place the relatively new and unknown Hemsworth family in charge of the very important province of Arnor.

House Marach

House Marach

The House of Marach was named after their first leader Marach or more commonly after his descendant Hador Lórindol, the House was the greatest of the Three Houses of the Triumverate of Arnor.  

Talheim was founded by the Empire of Numeron during the earliest days of their entry into Arnor, and this was basically the most northerly point that they were able to settle before they begin to find massive resistence from the Teutonic natives. Talheim grew under the control of House Marach of whom was one of the Triumverate and ruled their seat of power from Talheim. In this way everything was going very well for Talheim until the Orange death brought massive ruin to House Marach and left Talheim much reduced. During the Arnor War the city would be besieged twice but both times it was able to hold onto itself despite losing nearly all its surrounding counties.

House Haleth

House Haleth

The House of Haleth (or the Haladin) was the second of the Three Houses of Men. They were the descendants of Haldad, but the house was named after Haldad's daughter Haleth, who led her people from East Beleriand to Brethil. They were a reclusive folk, dark-haired but smaller in stature than the Bëorians. They kept separate from the other Men. Their language was different from that used by the other Edain.

The Haladin were ruled by a Haldad, a descendant of Haldar brother of Haleth, but they formed a lose alliance of clans rather than a strong nation as the other Edain. The Haldad was in charge of a council of elders, which took decisions for the entire people. The last Haldad of Haldar's line was Brandir the Lame, who was killed by Túrin Turambar.

Húrin Thalion wrought the final ruin of the Haladin when he came to Brethil. He caused a civil war which killed the last descendants of Haldad, and led a great part of the Haladin away south to Nargothrond. He abandoned them after delivering the treasure to Thingol of Doriath, and it seems this people returned home them.

King

The King like most Kingdom's holds the power of the Kingdom. Like other Kingdoms the King of Arnor, is responsible for the passing of laws, and the direction of internal improvements. The King holds all significant power, except over religion where the Dragon Horn House has control of the direction that religion takes in Arnor.

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."

-Jonas Hemsworth

Jonas Hemsworth is the elderly King of Arnor and the son of Fredrick, and Jane Hemsworth making him the Lord of House Hemsworth. While the Numenorian are immortal when it comes to aging he has been afflicted with an ancient disease he picked up during the Fall of Numenor and since this day he has become weaker and weaker to the point that he is going to die soon.

He is married to Natalie Portmane of whome the relationship and love he has with her has come to define him in his long life. With Natalie Portmane he has one child with.

As the heir to the throne of Arnor, Chris Hemsworth knows that a lot is riding on how he fairs as a King. The Kingdom of Arnor stands at a crossroads, and he has attempted to keep the peace with The Empire while his father slowly loses his health and moves closer and closer to his death.

Dragon Horn House

The Dragon Horn House is not actually a family caste, or any kind of blood relatives instead the dragon horn are an organization that controls the worshipping that goes on in Arnor. Once all non-dragon was strictly illigal but before the War with the Empire, a law was passed that made other religions heavily taxed but legal.

The Dragon Horn House is at present obsessed with removing all non-dragons worshippers from the Kingdom, and is very violent in this action.

Palantir

Main Article : Palantir

Palantir
"The palantír replied to each, but all those in Gondor were ever open to the view of Osgiliath. Now it appears that, as the rock of Orthanc has withstood the storms of time, so there the palantír of that tower has remained. But alone it could do nothing but see small images of things far off and days remote. Very useful, no doubt, that was to Saruman; yet it seems that he was not content. Further and further abroad he gazed, until he cast his gaze upon Barad-dûr. Then he was caught!"
― Gandalf, The Palantír

The palantíri (sometimes translated as "Seeing Stones") were stones that could be used in communication with one another, and also to see many things across the face of the world. When its master looked in it, he could communicate with other Stones and anyone who might be looking into them; people of great power can manipulate the Stones to see virtually any part of the world. The Palantir are now the source of great dread for much of the Numenorians as they provide a glimpse into the things they have lost because of the coruption and destruction wrought by Sauron.

The palantíri were made by Fëanor in the Uttermost West of whom wanted to create a greater way for communication. Twenty eight palantíri were made, of which nine were given to the Numenorians of the Empire Númenor by Gil-galad as a gift during the Second Age, and in time they were distributed to seven different locations: four in Gondor and three in Arnor. They were used largely for communication, but also to see what was occurring throughout the respective realms. Their existence was common knowledge, but no-one was allowed easy access to them save for kings and rulers, appointed wardens, or by royal command. One by one the stones vanished from public knowledge or were lost. The Osgiliath-stone fell into Anduin during the Kin-strife and burning of that city. When Arvedui, King of Arnor, was shipwrecked and his line ended, he drowned with the palantíri of Amon Sûl and Annúminas, the only communicating stones of Arnor. When Minas Morgul fell, the stone was assumed destroyed in general. The wiser and more foresighted men of Gondor decided that in case Sauron had seized the Stone, they would stop using the Anor-stone to prevent any contact with the Dark Lord. As the Elostirion-stone was locked away and could not answer the other stones anyway, the only remaining stone was the Orthanc-stone, which became useless to the Gondorians. When Beren gave Saruman the deserted but secure Orthanc, he likely assumed that Saruman, head of the leading order against Sauron, would keep it safe.

Points of Interest

Major Cities

Arnor is very heavily Numenorian influenced, and this effect means they are effectively all classical Numeron cities. Unlike Gondor whose cities are influenced by the more mountainy areas of Atlantis, the cities of Arnor are built in a more rustic open method that personified the outer provinces of Atlantis.

Dun Garak is an offical city in Arnor, and at the same time is semi-autonamous. There Dwarves of this hold have fought in every war that Arnor has had and most citizens see them as just regular members of Arnor.

Tallheim

Vital statistics
Type of Goverment Heriditary Absolute Monarchy
Allegiance Arnor
Ruling House House Pharaz
Population Second Largest city in Arnor with a population of more then 100,000

Language Atlantian

Races, and Ethnicity Atlantians, small population of both germans, and Duneduain

Tallheim is the second largest city in Arnor, and despite its rustic appearance the city itself contains well over a hundred thousand residents and contains a large part of the Arnor economy. The city itself sits on a cliff top, and the only reasonable way for an army of The Empire to attack it is from beneath it, and it for this reason that the city has maintained itself through all the wars. Tallheim stands as the most heavily populated of the remaining northern towns and it is located far more north then any of the other cities of Arnor thus making it very much aware of the threat posed by the forces of The Empire.  Talheim is the capital of the Arnor province of Nargothrond, and in this position it stands somewhat more independant then the other larger city of Nargothrond in Tharbad due to it being the center of House Pharaz.

The population of Talheim has balooned throughout the generations since its founding. First due to the growth of House Pharaz bringing many nobles, and their followers to the city brought a huge amount of population to the city. This first population boom caused the city which was at that time located only on the top of the mountain top to begin to construct itself underground to suit the population growth. Following this the city grew again following the First conflict with The Empire as the lands to the west were left barren and destroyed following the destruction wrought by the Emperian forces. This large population grows to this day due to a system of greenhouses that litter the undergrounds and are lighted through a powerful system of mirrors that bring light into the deepest sections of the city. 

Talheim was founded by the Empire of Numeron during the earliest days of their entry into Arnor, and this was basically the most northerly point that they were able to settle before they begin to find massive resistence from the Teutonic natives. Talheim grew under the control of House Marach of whom was one of the Triumverate and ruled their seat of power from Talheim. In this way everything was going very well for Talheim until the Orange death brought massive ruin to House Marach and left Talheim much reduced. During the Arnor War the city would be besieged twice but both times it was able to hold onto itself despite losing nearly all its surrounding counties.

Magheim

Galheim

Magheim is a city in northern city in Arnor which was once a jewel in the kingdom but was devestated during the Orange Death and then ruined during a brief occupation by The Empire.

Magheim was founded during the initial forays of the Numenorians into Anor, and swiftly became the home of House Haleth of whom was a member of the Triumverate. House Haleth for many years was the most powerful of the three houses, but much like House Marach was brought low by the events of the Orange death so to was House Haleth who lost half their members to the plague, and was in a very weak position when the Arnor War begin. When the Empire invaded Arnor the first of the major cities to fall was Magheim and when The Empire took the city the forces that were left behind to hold the city basically lost control of the huge amount of Teutons that flooded into the city on vigilante missions to take shots at the Atlantians and Numenorians. In a year long occupation of the city nearly sixty percent of the remaining population were massacred, starved, fled, or were executed by the vengeful Teutons, and with these losses came the complete destruction of the Numenorians in the city of whom were publically hung outside of public areas.

Galheim

See Also : Galheim

Galheim2

Galheim was once one of the most critical cities in Arnor, as it sits in the center of the Arnor region and is the closest settlement to the opening of the Arnor mountains which are the only feasable means of trading in large quantities with the southern regions. Built between two mountains with a wide gap between the two which is connected by a massive bridge which connects the two towns into one town. The loss of this city to The Empire is something that Arnor has never been able to recover from, and has forced the splitting of Arnor into a western and eastern section.

Galheim stood as the center of trade for Arnor for generations, and during the conflicts of Arnor the city itself remained rather unnafected due to how far back from the front lines it was. This changed during the Arnor War when the Empire tricked the forces of Arnor into believing a ceasefire was in place, and with this they rushed Galheim and were able to overwhelm the city before reinforcements could arrive. With its capture it now stands as a city of The Empire and has caused serious problems for the Kingdom of Arnor. As a member of The Empire it has grown into a more cosmopolitan city and a center of the growing Teutonic population alongside the growing Sigmar religion.

Fornost

Fornost

Fornost is the capital of Arnor , and the largest remaining city in Arnor. As the site of the goverment of Arnor, and its leading economic, population and military center the city is of extreme importance and its fall would herald the end of Arnor. Although besieged many times in it's history the city has never been taken by an invading force, and the twin towers of Arnor are a welcome site for all those who wish to see the former light of Numenor shine on the world.

Due to its location in Arnor Fornost was one of the later foundings of the Empire of Numeron and for many would mark the most northerly location of a major Numenorian settlement. From Fornost the Atlantians, and Numenorians controlled the northern Teutons, and other Germans and this made Fornost grow incredibly quickly, and this pace would continue all the way to the point of the Downfall of Numeron. During the Downfall of Numeron the city of Fornost was besieged many times by the Tuetons hoping to expand their holdings south but the fortifications always held despite the incredible odds against the city. Following the Downfall of NUmeron and the end of the Empire of NUmeron the city of Fornost became the capital of the Kingdom of Arnor, and grew even more as the fleeing Atlantians from the north and west all found their way into Arnor. During the War against The Empire the city would suffer less then any other city in Arnor, but was kept under siege the entire time, and only broke out during the last days of the conflict.

Dun Garak

Gates of Ironforge

Dun Garak or "Ironforge"is a large Dwarven Hold that is part ofArnor.Following the fall of Karak Ankor , theDwarves of Dun Garak decided to join with Arnor, and the two have worked together very well ever since. The Dwarves of Dun Garak were never completely content with their lot in Karak Ankor, and because of this they were one of the first Holds to abandon Karak Ankor to its fate and start it's own life.

It is the ancestral home of the Clan Aedrian dwarves. Edrin Aedrian rules this hold and the surrounding Dwarven areas of Khaz Modan from his throne room within the city. Other then Clan Aedrian there are several other Clans of note, and it worth noting that Dun Garak is the capital of a rather large Dwarven Kindom in the Arnor Mountains that consists of several Thaigs and numerous mines.

Dun Garak was founded originally by Clan Aedrian of whom was fleeing the wars in Finland and didn't go to the World Edge Mountains but instead went to Central Europe and ended up in the lands that would become a part of the Empire of Numeron. As one of the western Holds Dun Garak was responsible for a lot of the fighting that occured in the War of Vengeance. During the war their Hold was attacked briefly by a force of Elves, but they closed the front gate, and harrassed the Elves for nearly two years until eventually the Elves abandoned the siege and went away. Following the events of the War of Vengeance the Dwarves of Dun Garak were tired of their membership in Karak Ankor. The Lord at the time wanted to rule himself without fear of being embroiled in some massive conflict that didn't effect them at all.
