Red fires burn in the east. Black clouds wrack the sky. The Enemy is moving, mustering at the very doorstep of Gondor. But still hope remains: the ships that raided Pelargir now lie in the hands of Aragorn, who seeks to sail north and reclaim the lands of men. With the Witch-king's army preparing to besiege Minas Tirith, you must keep the forces of darkness from learning of Aragorn's plan and seek allies and information to help defend Middle-earth from the foul legions of Sauron.

Gondor is the second of the two great nations of Men founded in Middle-earth by Elendil after the Downfall of Númenor, the other being Arnor in the north. It was located to the west of Mordor, on the Bay of Belfalas.
Gondor was at first ruled jointly by Elendil's sons Isildur and Anárion. Both Elendil and Anárion were lost in the Siege of Barad-dûr, and his brother Isildur soon afterwards in the Disaster of the Gladden Fields, and so the Kingship of Gondor fell on Anárion's son Meneldil. Thus, the Kings of Gondor were descendants of Anárion through many generations until the time of Eärnur.
When Eärnur was lost in Minas Morgul in III 2050, the rule of Gondor was taken up by the King's Steward, Mardil Voronwë; the death of Eärnur was not certain, and so Mardil and the Stewards who followed him pledged to rule 'until the King comes back'. Unlikely though this seemed, it happened almost a thousand years later in III 3019 when Aragorn Elessar, descendant by right line of Isildur, elder brother of Anárion, reclaimed the throne of Gondor.
Eastern Gondor lies on the forefront of war. Enemies march on the ruined city of Osgiliath, as the people of Gondor seek refuge in the strongholds along the White Mountains. Defend refugees from Minas Tirith who have taken shelter from the encroaching army. Can you protect them from the forces of Mordor while still keeping Aragorn's approach a secret from Sauron and his spies?
Clear the land closest to the Rammas, the massive wall that surrounds Minas Tirith. Tensions run high with the impending siege and those who remain call for aid from any who would give it.
Join the resistance in South Ithilien! Rangers hold their ground with little to show for it, save a rising death toll and dwindling resources. Aid them in slowing and thinning the ranks of the enemy who cross the borders ahead of Sauron's army.
Fight to keep the enemy at bay! The East bank of Osigiliath has been sacked and the city is overrun. Hold the line against the forces of the Witch-king in hope that the aid from Pelargir does not come too late.
