Return of Shadow

Return of Shadow Beta 0.3 Faction Showcase
Harad


Harad is the next faction in the Showcase.
Harad will be the 13th faction to be released later this year with Beta 0.35

General

Harad is a faction focused on raiding with quick hit and run tactics being its bread and butter.
They field strong ranged units as well as fast moving cavalry such as the Lancers and Jinetes.

Late game they have the mighty Mumakil that will crush all in its path.

They also get aid from the Corsairs of Umbar with their deathly sharp blades as well as the men of Far Harad.


Units


Harad starts with the Haradrim Warriors brandishing sharp curved blades they make for the core of the Haradrim infantry.
They also have access to the Haradrim Spearmen.
Harad's ranged units include the Haradrim Archers and Haradrim Skirimishers skilled at using Jarids and Javelins in combat.

Making up the Haradrim Cavalry are the Haradrim Lancers and Jinetes.

The Corsairs act as strong infantry focused on attacking.

Far Harad's units are the Shockers a powerful heavy infantry used in shock tactics and the Stalkers a ranged unit.


Of course Harad is also known for its beasts of War the Mumakil.
These Mumakil are much bigger than the ones you're familiar with.
They also have a new beast unit the Great Beast which you'll recognise from Return of the King as the large horned beasts these beasts will barrel into your enemies and scatter them at high speed.

Heroes


Herashir is a skilled archer and makes for good captain for Harad's ranged units.

Leading the men of Far Harad is their Chieftain Tahar a warrior like no other.
Asharin is the blade wielding master who's blades will slice up any enemy that dares to fight him.

Their leader is King Serakh a mighty warrior and leader of war on his steed he is nearly peerless.

Actually there are 3 new factions, Elves, Dwarves and Goblins. And you now have the oppotunity to make walls and buildings whereeva. And you can also have sea battles.
