The peoples of Dorwinion are divided between Elves and Men. The Elves are few, but with their affinity for nature have become the wealthy of the land. Despite this, the aristocracy of Dorwinion is formed by the Men. This is due to Man's eagerness to fight, as opposed to the Elven interests in peace. Despite this divide, the Men, regardless of their power, are jealous of the Elven wealth flowing from the vineyards and trade routes.

In the Vinter-court, the Wine Regent (comparative to a king in other realms) oversees a large council. Many of the nobles are Men, as they don't wish to see Elves in their place of power. The Wine Regent only wishes to maintain peace and the flourishing of commerce. This is made more difficult as the nobles push Dorwinion to the brink of war.

On the outskirts of the realm, peoples from across Rhûn are migrating over the border. Though many of these are refugees from wars in the east, there is also a coordinated effort to overwhelm the people of Dorwinion and make the land a puppet of the Easterlings, bringing them into the coming fight against Dale. In this tense atmosphere, the Wine Regent is having an even harder time keeping the peace.

This tension will give the player the opportunity to choose between good and evil, Dale or Rhûn, Elves or Men...
