Rangers of the North (L)


(TA 1974 to FA 120)

This incarnation of the Rangers was formed after the fall of Arthedain by Aranarth, the last sole survivor of the Royalty of that Kingdom. Aranarth founded this loose organization in order to help cleanse Eriador of the evil of the Witch-king, and to preserve the bloodlines of the Dunedain. Over the course of the late Third Age, the Rangers did much to protect what was left of civilization in the remains of the North-kingdom. The exploits of one Captain of the Rangers are noted in a popular history of the War of the Ring, wherein Aragorn Elessar brought to fruition the hopes of Aranarth by claiming the crown of Gondor and beginning the recolonization of Arnor. It is extremely rare for any but those of pure Dunedain blood to become Rangers, though it is known to happen on occasion.
See ArnorTM and Arnor: The PeopleTM for more information.
