LotRO Lorebook Landmarks Spotlights Donnvail
The Lord of the Rings: Shadows of Angmar Lorebook’s latest feature is the village of Donnvail. Huddled in the shadow of Carn Dûm the Hill-men of Donnvail have long been free of the yoke of the Witch-king. Yet once again a dark power is rising in Carn Dûm and the Hill-men of Angmar must bend to its will or be destroyed.
In the western reaches of Angmar lies the village of Donnvail, the home of Hill-men friendly to the Rangers of the North. These people, unlike their brethren in Aughaire, live under the direct oppression of the Angmarim and their masters in Carn Dûm, swearing fealty to the Witch-king of Angmar. They spend their dismal lives farming and hunting to feed the evil hosts of Mordirith, the False King.
Though some of the simple folk of Donnvail see through the veil of lies with which the Angmarim have blanketed their town, there is little they can do to throw off the shackles of their oppression. Others readily betray anyone who dares to speak against Angmar, seeking only to curry the favour of their masters.
