This article is for the NPC, for the Faction see here.

Tauredain (see pronunciation, Sindarin: Forest-men) roam the Jungles of Far Harad which they hold sacred. They are bitter enemies of the Moredain and any group allied with them. They sometimes give out Mini-Quests, some of which consist of collecting items such as cocoa beans, Tauredain Amulets, etc. while others involve killing Moredain, Half-trolls, or Southrons. Only killing Moredain and completing mini-quests will raise your Tauredain Alignment.

NPCs Edit

Besides the normal Tauredain 'villager', there are several other Tauredain NPC types:

History Edit

The following information is non-canon (with respect to LOTR canon). It has been invented for the mod's lore. Original lore for the mod makes every effort to remain consistent with LOTR canon.

The Tauredain first lived in the swamps of Far Harad and some time later they left the swamps in search of a new home. After wandering for years, they found the lush jungles of Far Harad. Stricken with its natural beauty, they began to worship the trees and built huge, stone pyramids, temples and shrines. The Tauredain united, and a religious war to spread their beliefs to their neighbors and beyond began. Invading the Mangroves, they battled and subdued the Limwaith. Eventually, their empire fell and the Limwaith drove them out of the Mangroves. Weakened by disunity and war, the Tauredain were attacked by the Moredain. The Moredain cut down their trees and stole their sacred animal, the Mumakil. This conflict started a bitter rivalry between the two peoples. The Tauredain still have not forgot what the Moredain did to them, and have sworn vengeance on them and their allies, the Southrons. The Tauredain await a new leader to unite them to conquer Far Harad and destroy the Moredain.

Inspiration Edit

The Tauredain are likely based on a blend of Sub-Saharan African and Pre-Columbian Maya tribes.

Spawning Edit

Tauredain will spawn within the Far Harad Jungle biome and throughout its sub-biomes randomly, and will wander around unless you have a negative Tauredain alignment, in which case they will attack you if you get within 17 blocks of them. If you have a positive or neutral Tauredain alignment they will ignore you unless you right click to talk to them.

Unit Hiring Edit

The base Tauredain cannot be hired, but the Tauredain Blowgunner, Tauredain Warrior, and Tauredain Banner bearer can be bought from the Tauredain Chieftain once you have 200+ Tauredain alignment.
