In the land of Middle-earth, to the south of Gondor and Mordor lies the vast land called the Haradwaith. It is a harsh, unforgiving place, composed of an arid savanna along the River Harnen and the coastal land to the north, a scorching desert - the Nâfarat - spreading out over the interior, and a dense jungle in the far south.
Harad has been shaped by conflict ever since the Second Age. Great kingdoms, tribes, and chiefdoms have risen and fallen, all warring against each other and the Northron men of Gondor. The harshness of the climate has made the Haradrim a hardened, unyielding people. That they have mastered the monstrous Mûmakil as beasts of burden and war is living proof of this tenacity.
Deep within the sandy sea of the Nâfarat live the Koanoze, a people comprised of hundreds of nomadic clans who travel the wastes from oasis to oasis in search of water and cattle. The Dardât’sha are one such clan, some forty members. Although small, the Dardât’sha are an old clan, established in the early Third-Age over 1000 years ago. You are a member of this respected tribe.
But dark times are coming, even for the sun scorched land of Harad. In the face of such darkness, the Dardât’sha could very well be scattered to the wind like so many clans before them. For the Dark Lord is gathering all to him, and binding them in darkness.
