"The world has changed. I feel it in the water. I feel it in the earth. I smell it in the air. Much that once was is lost. For none now live who remember it. Darkness crept back into the forests of the world. Rumour grew of a shadow in the East, whispers of a nameless fear and the ring of power perceived its time had now come.

OOC: Oh my... HH is quite right about this not ending well... sadly, the closest Harad reinforcement I could get is miles away. I also have no idea who's commanding the Men of the East right now.

*The drunks get out of their taverns through the debris made by trebuchets; anger raged within them. They ran out to the gates with their cocktails and daggers, still drinking til death. The archers loaded their arrows with torches and shot it through the surrounding forests. A couple of 700 corsairs ran towards the boats and split into 7 ships with one hundred each.*

OOC: There is no forest, only large hills and a lot of mist hehe.

*The Rangers retreated, leaving the Trebuchets behind. They ran for the hills, some stopped and turned taking a final shot at their enemy and taunting them. They fell back into an by mist obscured position between to hills, the only thing that revealed their position would be the lit torches.*

OOC: No threat, no battle :)

*The ships load the cannons and fire at the retreating Rangers. Most were too far out of reach, only a few died.

Several drunks took horses and rode out. They threw molotovs at the trebuchets and went back to drinking in the tavern.*

OOC: Then I'll give you one.

*The Black Fleet caught fire, caught by surprise at the Gondorian fleet that emerged from the sea. War Galleons loaded with archers opened fire, whilst some got close and boarded the vessels. The slaves aboard the Corsair ships were Gondorian men and women, upon hearing the battle they rose up against their masters adding to the misery of the pirates, confusion set over them and their ships were nearly defenceless as both fire, steel and the hand of rebels sunk their navy.*

*A new type of warship emerged, the Adûniac Galleons opened fire on Umbar, stones that were lit on fire crashed onto the streets and houses.*

*Several War Galleons broke through and entered the haven itself, lighting the docked vessels on fire and landing infantry as the archers aboard provided covering fire.*

*Among the men of Gondor, where the Swan Knights of Lancer Army and led personally by Prince Verda. They freed the many slaves to help them fight.*

"The Hammer of Gondor shall fall on Umbar, and cleanse it of its filth."

OOC: So in essence, your fleet is burning, being boarded and not able to fight given that the slaves are angry. In the city that is soon going to be a ruin, there are Gondorian infantry and Swan Knights fighting together with the slaves to make you sad. The city is burning BTW and your men are still drunk which makes them even less well fighters. Good luck!

*From deep inside one of the unloading War Galleons, King Xenethor II ascended onto the deck. His presence surprised all but Prince Verda, who was the only one who knew the king was aboard.

Xenethor drew his sword and raised it high and shouted "FOR GONDOR!" He held his sword in both hands and charged at the city of Umbar. Behind him, the men took up the call and were filled with vigor and shouted "FOR GONDOR!" and then following Xenethor off the ships and into combat.

Xenethor and the soldiers of Gondor came upon the men like a hammer hitting a molten piece of metal. The Corsairs were completely taken by surprise and being drunk, could not respond in time to be cut down.

Archers took up positions and began mowing down any target they could see, forcing the Corsairs to stick to the burning buildings.*

OOC: ello mate :P

OOC: Wow. Raped from behind xD I'm gonna have to try to stall the battle for a day til the other Corsair raiders come back to Umbar. Lotrplaza.com(free-rp-area) let's use this. As you can see, the area is close together, and your troops are not good in foreign territory :) and it's afternoon, and the sun is barely seen above the walls of Umbar.

*The corsairs know the city well, and they hide in the alleys, ruins, and on top of buildings with their cocktails and a small lit fire, only awaiting the approach of soldiers. Several (at least a hundred) of the men in Umbar were of Numenorean descent. The Black Numenorians. The Black Numenoreans entered the armory of the keep and armed theirselves with some of the strongest steel known.

A small group of Gondorians ran down the streets looking for Corsairs. Soon, 10 arrows fell to them, one for each. Only 3 were fatal, the other 7 merely bounced off. The corsairs then threw a burning cocktail at them and the Gondorians burned.*

*The Swan Knights formed a shield wall and progressed through the streets slowly, killing everything in sight that was hostile. Prince Verda led them personally.*

*From the seas, the Adûniac Galleons continued their fire on the city. Careful not to hit their own men and to destroy the enemies most fortified positions, the walls were also a target and soon flaming boulders started to tear the barrackses, organized enemy formations and the gate.*

*War Galleons sunk most of the Black Fleet ships that were at sea or docked and now took up defensive positions themselves, around the Adûniac Galleons. Any Corsair ship that still remained would face a formidable formation.*

OOC: Note, Gondor has War Galleons that fire steel bolts as main weapons and have archers, you have like tiny Pirate Drommunds that can only board and maybe a few pirate archers.

*Xenethor broke off with a few hundred men and ran through the city, having studied old maps of the once glorious city(ha!). The edged their way around most of the civilian buildings and finally came to the southern end of the keep wall. Marines from Pelargir threw up grappling hooks and they stuck to the wall allowing Xenethor and his men to slip unnoticed onto the keep wall and down into the keep grounds themselves.

Once inside, the Marines threw their throwing spears at the men headed to the gate, taking them by surprise. Xenethor then lets out his battle cry and leads his men into the open keep slaughtering the confused rabble of men.

Even as the enemy forces reach their armory and weapons, the room is stormed by dozens of Marines and Men at Arms who cut them down before they reach their prized weapons.

Xenethor himself comes across the Pirate Lord, who was arming himself in his quarters. He told his men to continue while he dealt with the Pirate. He got into battle position and kept his eyes focused on his opponent.*

OOC: Im assuming that the big keep thing in the open area is the keep, we all agree?

OOC: Meh, you guys won. Killed of my Black Numenoreans - basically lost. They're the only good fighting force of the city - no more Black Numenoreans in Middle Earth :) Maybe a few in the north... Pft. I'll get it back. Soon... I'll burn down the city after I besiege it, rebuild in an RP year, and done :D

*The men of gondor finish off the black numenorians in the keep and take with them all the black Numenorian weapons and armor and precious metals that were in the keep. Upon the defeat of the Black Numenorians, the pirates that remained surrendered and were lined up and secured, along with all males over 12.

The men of gondor then set to work removing all food, water, and other things from the city. Bringing with them the people hiding inside the buildings. After the entire city was cleared of everything, literally, the Adûniac Galleons launched a volley into the gate house and keep, leveling them both. The Adûniac Galleons then leveled every section of the walls using rubble scavenged from the ruined keep and gate house.

After that was done the stones were moved from the area where the walls were and dropped into the bay of Umbar, and after enough stones they officially closed the port of Umbar off. And then after one more search, they poured oil from the lamps around the city on all buildings still standing, and lit it on fire.

After 12 hours of burning, the entire city was gone. Only heaps of ashes remained, even those were scattered. The men of gondor then spread to about 5 miles out and worked backwords, deforesting the entire area. The city of umbar was treeless with 5 miles of all sides.

And then the time came to ruin the fields, plows dug up all soil that could even produce a single ear of corn and salt was put into these holes. the plows then literally plowed the salt into the land, literally killing the land.

And to top it off, the captives all over 12 and who were males were beheaded and their salty blood further ruined the land. Nothing remained, it was a barren desert just like Harad itself. No more would the menace of Umbar challenge the kingdom of Gondor.*

SECOND

*King Xenethor placed the Black Numenorian leaders head atop a pike and planted it into the ground, the only thing visible for miles around. On it hung the banner of the Corsairs and etched in it was the phrase "Castamir has paid his final price."

The women and children were sent off to a nearby Haradrim camp with some food and water, while the Men of Gondor loaded their ships with their loot and left.*

OOC: literally never ever will you be able to reconstruct that city, rome did that to carthage and still food cant be grown in that area, and that was over 2000 years ago. Finally no more corsairs and no more black numenorians.

Description

*Morning, mist had settled down over the eastern lands, the oceans were uneasy and concealed by it. In the Haven of Umbar the Corsairs rested and recovered from their nights of pirate debauchery, their Black Fleet docked and the slaves still aboard or spread out through the city.*

*The city guard was likely lax because of this, yet few anticipated to see large rocks flying towards them. Boulders pierced the mist, revealing a force of Rangers that had gathered to lay siege to Umbar. Arrows followed and hit the guard.*

OOC: In short, its morning and you are hungover, mist everywhere as is typical in the morning and Rangers and Trebuchets are attacking Umbar.
Good luck fighting when you have these handicaps and the people over Umbar are not generally known to be quite the brilliant fighters like those of Gondor.
