The Kingdom of Nargothrond is a hidden Noldorin kingdom in the banks of the river Narog. It is ruled by Finrod Felagund, but the area was originally inhabited by Petty-dwarves (and called by them Nulukkizdîn) before the Noldor drove them out.
|“||Thus Finrod came to the Caverns of Narog, and began to establish there deep halls and armouries after the fashion of the mansions of Menegroth; and that stronghold was called Nargothrond.||”|
–Quenta Silmarillion, of the Return of the Noldor
Nargothrond is the hidden stronghold of Finrod Felagund, delved deep into the western banks of the river Narog. The secret dwelling was delved by the Dwarves of the Ered Luin and the Elves of Finrod, after Finrod had seen the beauty of Menegroth. Finrod compensated the Dwarves for their work through great jewels and other crafts of the Noldor, for he was said to have been the one to have brought the most riches out of Aman of all the Princes of the Noldor. It was then they forged for him the Nauglamír, and gave him the famous epessë (or epithet) Felagund, Hewer of Caves in their language. The area around Nargothrond as well as the caves the kingdom was built in were originally inhabited by the Petty-dwarves. However, after wanting to settle in the area, the Noldor drove them away and the Petty-dwarves have hated all Elves, especially the Noldor, ever after.
Finrod Felagund, son of Finarfin, ruled Nargothrond from its founding. He is known as a brave and kind prince, cheerful yet thoughtful and righteous by all standards. While rarely engaging the forcces of Morgoth in open battle, the Elves of Nargothrond will usually rather attack their foes via skirmishes and ambushes in the lands surrounding the river Narog and the forest of Taur-en-Faroth.
Nargothrond is ruled by Finrod Felagund, (AKA endertortoise). He is currently building the city of Nargothrond in an undisclosed location within the Nargothrond biomes in the Andram, by the river Narog. For all those wishing to join the faction, either message Finrod in game or message him via Discord (His discord name is 'Gandalfisntawizard.com', discord number #7041)
Please note: You will be denied access to the city of Nargothrond unless you are a member of the Nargothrond faction. A very small group of people and characters are exempt from this rule, but you will know whether or not you belong to the aforementioned group.
Any questions can be brought up with Finrod, or failing that, jakub8899 and KillieMiner.
