Dunedain (Races Help)
The Dúnedain are descendants of the Numenoreans, Men who ruled the
land long ago, but their numbers have dwindled. In earlier ages, they
were nobles and kings and their armies were legend. Now, their blood is
thin and their numbers are scattered. The Dúnedain that dwell in the
north largely live as Rangers in the woodlands and legends say that they
secretly protect the weaker races by guarding the forests and roads. The
Dúnedain in the south, on the other hand, still hold the lands of Gondor.
Although they cling to the remnants of their former might, they suffer
constant war which saps their strength and makes their future uncertain.
The Dúnedain are a tall and noble race, paragons of their kind, and seem
to have an inner strength beyond what ordinary Men possess. Being part
of the Council of Elrond, they are committed to Sauron's defeat and the
resurrection of their glory days.
Dúnedain language varies depending on the roots of the speaker, but
most, especially those who dwell in the south, speak Adunaic, the common
tongue of Gondor.
