|“||Three great fleets, long prepared, came up from Umbar and the Harad, and assailed the coasts of Gondor in great force; and the enemy made many landings, even as far north as the mouth of the Isen.||”|
–Annals of the Kings and Rulers, Appendix A of The Lord of the Rings
Umbar, the land of Corsairs, is a biome very similar to the vanilla "plains" biome, found on the western coast of Middle-earth, South of Harondor and encased by Near Harad. So far, nothing spawns here other than vanilla Minecraft mobs.
At the moment this is essentially a place-holder biome; it will be greatly improved and changed in the future when the Corsairs and Black Numenoreans are added to the Mod. This biome will also likely be host to great fleets of ships, owing to it's predominate naval history.
Upon entering this biome one gains the achievement "City of Corsairs".
Umbar Hills Edit
The Umbar hills are a much hillier version of the main biome. They make up much of the northern part of the Cape of Umbar.
Umbar Forest Edit
The Umbar forest is a sub-biome of Umbar that contains a greater concentration of trees. The Men of Umbar likely use these forests to supply materials for their great fleets.
- Flowers - A version of the biome with an abundance of flowers.
- Forest - A more forested version of the biome.
- Steppe - A very flat version of the biome.
- Barren steppe - A steppe, but with no trees.
- Hills - A hillier version of the biome.
- Mountain - A mountain that rises from the surrounding terrain.
- Light forest - A lightly forested version of the biome.
- Dense forest - A densely forested version of the biome.
- Dead forest - A version of the biome forested with dead trees.
- Dense birch forest - A forest of densely clustered birch trees.
- Forest hills - A forested version of the hill variant.
- Apple-Pear orchard - An orchard containing apple and pear trees.
- Orange orchard - An orchard containing orange trees.
- Lemon orchard - An orchard containing lemon trees.
- Lime orchard - An orchard containing lime trees.
- Almond orchard - An orchard containing almond trees.
- Olive orchard - An orchard containing olive trees.
- Plum orchard - An orchard containing plum trees.
In the future, this land will be populated by the Corsairs of Umbar and the Black Numenoreans. For the present, however, this land is only home to vanilla Minecraft animals.
This biome was similar to the vanilla plains biome. Oak trees dot the landscape. The relatively fertile soil hosts a broad variety of trees and plants, similar to the vegetation of the nearby river fed lands of Near Harad Fertile.
