If Wilderland has entered a time of renewal with the defeat of the Dragon, and Eriador has long fallen into ruin, then the southland is on the knife’s edge between the two. The two kingdoms of Rohan and Gondor are both proud and strong, although both are in decline at present. In Rohan, a cruel and greedy king sows dissent among his marshals. As for Gondor, the last kingdom of vanished Númenor has spent the last thousand years fighting a long defeat against the Enemy, and while the Necromancer may have been defeated in Wilderland, scouts on the borders of Mordor report growing strength in that dark land. In such troubled times, many heroes and adventurers of the South look to Wilderland for hope and allies.
