The Lord of Ravens

News 8 comments

AotR logo medium


Introducing one of Erebor's unique heroes:

Roäc the Raven-lord.



Roäc son of Carc was the Lord of Ravens during Thorin's time. Of old, the Dwarves of Erebor enjoyed a close relationship to these exceptionally intelligent birds - going so far as being able to communicate with them. Roäc was the bird that Thorin sent to the Iron Hills to contact his cousin, Dáin Ironfoot to come to their aid.

In Age of the Ring, Roäc is an airborne support hero. He's unable to attack, which means he has to level up in a different way. Using the same system that was used in The Dwarf Holds, the player can purchase Roäc's levels from his first ability:

Rank 1: Lord of Ravens
Allows Roäc to grow in strength. Becomes more expensive the higher Roäc ranks up.
At rank 1, he gives +5% movement speed, at rank 3 he additionally gives +10% experience gain, at rank 5 he gives +10% movement speed.

Rank 1: Subtle Ways
Roäc is useful, but vulnerable. In order to have a chance on a dangerous battlefield, he can conceal himself so long as he remains still.
Roäc becomes invisible while remaining still.

Rank 3: Unkindness of Ravens
Using mysterious-sounding calls and subtle magic, Roäc can slow down the enemy below him.
Enemy units below Roäc lose -7% movement speed.

Rank 3: Wisdom of Yore
Through years of gathering information and offering advice to the King Under the Mountain, the Ravens of Erebor have become skilled in lore and wisdom. Roäc, being the wisest of all, can offer his wisdom to provide experience to units.
Friendly units within the radius gain experience.

Rank 5: Messenger of the King
The Ravens of Erebor have always served as messengers between the various Dwarf kingdoms. As such, Roäc is able to summon a battalion of Iron Hills Warriors to aid the King in battle.
Summons one battalion of Iron Hills Warriors.

Hi. I'm looking for someone who went to Eastern University in 2005. You sat on your laptop around lunchtime (could have been dinner-time) near the dining hall. We used to talk. I think you created mods or custom maps for Battle for Middle Earth, and I think you worked at McDonalds. If you get this message please reach out to me. My name is Eric Martin. I want to catch back up with you and have forgotten your name to look you up. Thanks.
