Serving (General Help)
Sauron's forces are multiplying and spreading throughout the lands.
His will is to dominate everything, and to do so he gathers strength
into his armies.
There are those among the races that call themselves "free" that
realize the wisdom and power and glory of Sauron's rule and the order
it would bring. To Sauron they have pledged to serve faithfully, and
their once-friendly Free Races call them traitors.
The servants of Sauron can enter his lands and interact with his
However, it is a fact that many of Sauron's other servants, Orcs and
other beasts, hold a natural dislike for the pale races of Men, the stumpy
Dwarves, and those Elves that were poisoned by the light. Despite
dedicating their service to a common lord, Sauron, not all of Sauron's

this decision lightly, for Sauron will not release you from his service
until you have served a minimum of 1 day of age.
In order to pledge to the dark side, you must be of at least level 10
and have at least 2 days of age.
To request release from Sauron's service, return to the Lieutenant and
"serve no more". Note that in this case, Sauron will not welcome you back
to servitude until you have aged one more day.
Servants of Sauron that harm friends of Mordor risk being tagged as a
"traitor" and as such being chased by other servants without mercy.
Traitors are still subject to the 1 day of age limit of releasing from
