Encounters in the Northern Angle

Phillip Gladney ©1999

Any encounters in the northern half of the Angle, that area comprising the border and enemy occupied regions, will most likely be with one of the opposing factions in the continuous border war. Hillmen raiders, Dunlending marauders, Red Lance long-range patrols and Orcish scouting parties can all be encountered with some degree of regularity. Occasionally, beleaguered travelers may be rescued by a wandering party of elves or a band of Arthedain's famous Rangers. Wild animals are also prevalent and seen fairly often in this locale since there are so few hunters to keep their numbers down.
Encounters should be rolled for every 8 miles or every 4 hours, whichever is the most relevant.
