In the year 861 of the Third Age, Arnor was sundered. The death of the tenth and last Arnorian king, Eärendur, left the North Kingdom’s loyalties split among Eärendur’s three surviving sons. Amlaith of Fornost, the eldest of the three and thus the Prince most deserving of inheriting his father’s full domain, won the Sceptre of Annúminas but in the process lost half of Arnor’s territory and much of her power. His brothers staked claim to the eastern and southern lands and successfully countered his attempts to reunify the realm.

Thus the North Kingdom split into three independent, neighboring but lesser states: Arthedain, Cardolan, and Rhudaur.

This realm module details the three sister kingdoms and their relations with one another. Much of the material covering Arthedain and Cardolan was previously available in Rangers of the North and The Lost Realm of Cardolan. The information on Rhudaur, together with more extensive lore concerning the inhabitants of sundered Arnor, has never appeared in previous modules.

ARNOR is a compilation of revised material from the following 1st Edition modules combined with new information: Lost Realm of CARDOLAN (1987), RANGERS of the North (1984), HILLMEN of the Trollshaws (1984), BREE and the Barrow Downs (1984), and Thieves of THARBAD (1985).

The SHIRE (1995) 2nd Edition Realm module was written based on ideas first detailed here.

ARNOR has been replaced and split into the two 2nd Edition volumes ARNOR: The Land (1997) and ARNOR: The People (1996).
