Lorebook Update

Lorebook Update -

The Loremasters at Turbine have updated the Lord of the Rings Online Lorebook with background information on the ruins of Ost Crithlanc and the dread spider Iornaith.

In the northeastern reaches of the North Downs, near the pass of Ram Dúath, lie the ruins of Ost Crithlanc, a fortress destroyed during the wars with Angmar and Rhudaur. Long these ruins lay undisturbed, but now Hillmen out of Angmar in service to the Iron Crown have begun to move the through Ram Dúath and encamp at there, mustering for Angmar’s assault against the Free Peoples of the North.

The once-empty ruins are now dotted with pavilions and campfires, and patrolled by enslaved servants and deadly archers. A great store of provisions, armour, and weapons is stockpiled there, overseen by skillful armourers. Unchecked, this army will march down upon the unsuspecting peoples of the North with a terrible fury.

Ost Crithlanc is a location created by Turbine for The Lord of the Rings Online™: Shadows of Angmar™, drawing from the lore surrounding Angmar’s invasion of Arthedain and Cardolan. Players who explore it may see behind the ruins, rising up along either side of the entrance to Ram Dúath, Angmar’s mockery of the famous Argonath from J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings.
