The Kin-strife presents the people¸ politics¸ and armies of Gondor under the repressive rule of Castamir the Usurper. The six largest cities of the South-kingdom - Pelargir¸ Umbar¸ Lond Ernil¸ Osgiliath¸ Minas Anor¸ and Minas Ithil - are described along with their administrative structures¸ military organization¸ and legal systems. Adventures tied to each metropolis bring the civil war to life. The Côr Aran¸ the Usurpers deadly ring of informers¸ detain any who work to restore the rightful King to his throne. Common criminals¸ Southron spies¸ and servants of the Dark Lord are all embroiled in the conflict. Strange conspiracies and webs of deceit await the bold and the loyal! Can our heroes survive amidst the snares of the Usurpers reign? The Kin-strife includes complete stats for MERP¸ the Lord of the Rings Adventure Game¸ and Rolemaster. The Kin-strife includes: ONCE AND FUTURE KING - a vivid account of Eldacars initial defeat¸ his maneuvering while in exile to regain the throne¸ and his final triumphant victory over Castamir. PELARGIR - heart of the Usurpers regime where the Royal Guard and the Côr Aran - both loyal to Castamir - oppose one another in rivalrous clash more often than they work in accord. UMBAR - bastion of traditionalists favoring Gondorian involvement in the South¸ yet fraught with conflict nonetheless: Crow fights Crow over the venues of land versus sea. LOND ERNIL - haven of the Prince of Belfalas who resists the Usurpers rule and therefore is Castamirs first target for covert assassination. OSGILIATH - ruined by Castamir and transformed into a vast prison for his enemies; the disgruntled residents plot rebellion against the false King. MINAS ANOR - initially neutral in the civil conflict¸ but siding with Castamir after the fall of Osgiliath; numerous loyalists to Eldacar make the strategic metropolis anything but a sinecure for the garrison commander. MINAS ITHIL - ruled by the Usurper through force of arms alone¸ the City of the Moon would throw off Castamirs reins within hours without the threat of the garrisons swords. THE PALE RIDERS - Easterlings scheme to murder the King in exile to gain a reward of horses and weapons from Castamir - can our heroes foil the plot?
