Greetings, stranger. Welcome to my page. I am Ori'verda AKA Milos and I currently live in the Netherlands. I like games, girls, books, movies and teamwork. Also I enjoy discussing about religion, politics, history and such affairs. And ignore the fact that a lot of my groups are Science-Fiction related, I love Sci-Fi for good reasons! ☢ ☢ ☢ P.S. The video with the redhead is not porn! I may be a crazy Serbian but I'm not that crazy. Besides that I'm a goof, in fact to show you I am going to fill up the my description with random banter, why? Yeah you guessed it, I'm not that strange or weird it is in fact to get a HTML code to work, if you don't know what that is good luck. Regardless I suppose I should continue filling out this description field according to that manual so I can get a cooler description, I don't know if that makes sense to you but according to the manual it works so it must work right? Well it should otherwise you would not be seeing this... Or would you? SRB FTW!

The first Lord of Dol Amroth was Galador, son of Imrazôr the Númenóreans. Imrazôr was the son of Adrahil I, who was already known as the Prince, and lived in Belfalas. At some point Imrazôr moved to the area where once was the elven haven of Edhellond. According to tradition, there he married Mithrellas, a Silvan Elf of Lórien who had accompanied Nimrodel, the beloved of Lórien's king Amroth, on her journey towards Edhellond, but had become lost along with her mistress. Therefore Galador and his descendants had claim to Elven blood.
After Imrazôr's death (Mithrellas' fate is nowhere described, only that she eventually left Imrazôr and Galador), Galador went on to found the city and later the princedom of Dol Amroth. He is counted as its first Lord. The specific date of its foundation is nowhere recounted.
The city of Dol Amroth was built south of Edhellond at the inlet of Cobas Haven in the Bay of Belfalas. In the north of the city was built the Seaward Tower of Tirith Aear.
The standard of the city was a silver swan.
The lands of Dol Amroth were also known as Dor-en-Ernil, or 'Lands of the Prince': initially this name was applied to the area of Belfalas where Adrahil I and Imrazôr lived, but after Galador it was also applied to the area of Dol Amroth itself.
The city of Dol Amroth is one of the largest fiefdoms of Gondor. The Faithful from Númenor began colonising the coast near Dol Amroth at the end of the Second Age shortly before Númenor was destroyed, and this area was noted for the number of men of Númenórean blood, and for the number who still spoke the Elvish tongue. By the end of the Third Age, a city had grown up around the Hill of Amroth, and had become the seat of a principality. Its prince is an important subject of the kingdom. The line of Dol Amroth was linked by marriage both to the Stewards of Gondor and to the Kings of Rohan: Imrahil was uncle to Boromir and Faramir; a kinsman of Théoden.
The Army of Dol Amroth aided Gondor in its fight against Mordor and its allies from overwhelming the rest of Middle-earth. Because Dol Amroth is a vassal of Gondor, its military forces had to be proficiently trained and vigilantly on guard in order to come to the aid of its King. Because of this, they were arguably the strongest country that opposed Sauron. During the Third Age, the Army of Dol Amroth was specifically trained in Mounted Warfare and Cavalry fighting from horseback, however some Knights also fought on foot when needed. Their armament consisted of the finest weapons and armor they could produce.
Its strength lies not in numbers, yet in quality. Dol Amroth has a small army that is highly skilled.
The Swan Knights of Dol Amroth are highly trained soldiers with fine training and excellent equipment. Their loyalty and resilient fearlessness earns them a great reputation as a fierce fighting force.
Their weapons are forged by the best smiths in the city to create excellent weapons that are nearly a match for old Numenorean weapons or even that of the Elves. This is to be expected as the weapons need to be top notch for the elite Swan Knights, whom lives depend on it.
The armor is crafted individually in parts and uniquely for each soldier which provides great protection against anything, it does make the soldiers rather slow due to all the extra weight. But in turn turns the Knight into a steel fortress.
And finally the training is very strict and hard but many brave souls endure it for their homeland, with great pride the enter the field of battle and are ready for whatever the enemy of Gondor and Dol Amroth may throw at them.
These Knights are former Swan Knights who signed up for a lifetime as a soldier, using their own money to hire the best smiths from elsewhere to thinker with their prized weapons and armor and enhance them further. Royal Knights are also more experienced in comparison to the normal Swan Knights as they served in previous campaigns and received a bit additional training.
They are stationed at Dol Amroth and are only deployed in the city and surrounding area, most of the Royal Knights are old veterans of previous battles and served as Swan Knights, now they guard their homes as their sons continue their work.

The Princes were known to have both Mannish and Elvish blood in them dating back to the union of Mithrellas and Imrazôr, which was more of a legend but believed in nonetheless.
Imaldis Honoricus Verda currently holds the throne of Dol Amroth and title of Prince, he is a young ruler with little experience but he tries to make up for it by relying on his studies to rule the kingdom fairly and skilfully, though many exclaim without wisdom.
As a ruler to his people, he tries to keep them motivated and happy, and his be fair and just for without the support of the people, he would be a Prince of air.
From a strategic standpoint, he knows how to look at maps and plan wars with some effectiveness but is not a grand strategist by far.
And as a tactician he is inexperienced, young and brash but nevertheless and inspiration for his troops and Prince Verda does have some knowledge of tactics.
But he makes up for all his shortcomings as one of the strongest warriors among his people, trained by his father to use a two handed sword and a tower shield whilst also wearing a heavy set of armor covered beneath cloth, Prince Verda covers his face in a helmet to appear menacing to his enemies and as a warrior wrath to his people. It comes to no surprise he is a large, hulk of a man.
His trusty steed, Arvak, carries him in to battle. One of the finest horses in Dol Amroth. Arvak is equally trained and was at Prince Verda's side during most of the young Prince's life.
Victorian Epitat Corintus is the second-in-command of Prince Verda and a trusted friend. Corintus hails from a small village near Dol Amroth, and always loved to watch the Prince and his Swan Knights ride through on their way to adventure and battle, once Corintus was old enough he paid a visit to the city and tried to join the Swan Knights and serve. But he was still too young.
Down on his luck, he wept as he made his way for home and as he did, he was stopped. Prince Olórin, father to Prince Verda. Took pity upon the child and decided to have trained alongside his own son, in contrast to Prince Verda, Corintus was small and swift but a very effective warrior with a two-handed sword as well. Due his quick nature, he was trained to protect Prince Verda on the field of battle.
As a strategist and tactician, he is equal to Prince Verda. They both have much to learn.
