Faradrim Aran (Royal Rangers) (V)


(SA 3320 to TA 1974)

The Royal Rangers of Arthedain hold traditions dating back to the lordship of Gil-Galad over Eriador in the Second Age, predating the founding of Arnor. Charged with the border-watch and with infiltration and scouting, the Rangers are both an elite and independent part of the Arthedain military. Exercising a large amount of autonomy from the standard chain of command within the Royal Army, the Rangers will allow anyone to join (even, rarely, Dwarves and Elves). Hopefuls must be 'sponsored' by an existing Ranger, and must pass the rigorous tests required for admittance (a Constitution, Agility, and Self Discipline of at least 90 each). Recruits must commit to a term of 7 years of service to be considered.
See ArnorTM and Arnor: The PeopleTM for more information.
