Creatures of Middle Earth: the Kergrim

Creatures of Middle Earth: the Kergrim - MMORPG.com

The Lord of the Rings Online official site has been updated with another look at some of the creatures that populate the lands of Middle Earth.  This week the focus is on the Kergrim.

The lumbering monsters known as Kergrim have seldom been seen anywhere beyond the borders of Angmar. When they can, they stalk the barrows and tombs of the long dead, searching for bones upon which to gnaw. It was long thought that they were simply beasts, but recent evidence shows that they are more than that. Perhaps they are some foul breed of troll; exceedingly stupid, but not wholly unintelligent.

Since the coming of the shadow of Angmar, they have been seen haunting the barrows of the Men of Arnor in the region around Lake Evendim. Whether the Kergrim are simply there to terrify the few Men who dwell in Evendim, or there seeking something specific within the tombs, danger lurks behind every grave.

The Kergrim were originally drawn from tales of a Scottish ghoul who lurked in graveyards, desecrating graves to gnaw the bones of the dead. They have been modified to fit into the world of The Lord of the Rings Online™: Shadows of Angmar™.
