Archet is a settlement located within the area of Archet Dale in Bree-land. [25.0S, 48.8W]

The town of Archet is located north-east of Bree, just north of Combe, and is the starting location for new hobbits and man characters. At that time, during the introduction quests, Archet was a thriving and busy place. However, when the brigands began the Assault on Archet this was all scattered and burnt to ashes and many residents lost their lives. Now Jon Brackenbrook is in charge of its restoration while commanding its defence.


The following services can be found within the settlement of Archet:

Archet is Old English meaning Forest's Edge and indeed that is the case. Archet is a small hamlet in Bree-land lying to the northeast of Bree-town, nestled at the edge of the Chetwood. The town and its outlying lands are inhabited by farmers and other rustic folk, who have little use for the bustle of big town life. A few hobbits dwell here, but the inhabitants are predominantly Big Folk.
Little is said of Archet in Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings" other than a brief description of its locations and an allusion to troubles with "robbers" in the region. This makes a perfect background for locating the Starter Area for new hobbit and man characters to this town:
The lack of any real authority and the peaceful nature of Archet's people have recently drawn the attentions of a band of brigands known as the Blackwolds, though rumour has it that the Blackwolds have much darker goals than terrifying common folk and farmers. To counter this threat, a retired sellsword by the name of Captain Brackenbrook has begun organizing the townsfolk into a makeshift garrison to repel the advances of the brigands.
