Simplicity and Abundance

Not all heroes are known by their skill at arms, or ancient knowledge. In this difficult time, hard work is a heroic trait by itself, and a Yeoman knows that lives are staked on the backs of honest labourers. As a Yeoman, you will farm, cook, and make simple armour that will provide the foundations of life for the good people of Middle-earth.


You can farm at special farming fields found throughout Middle-earth. Novice Farmhands can be found near farm fields in Michel Delving (Shire), Staddle (Bree-land), Thorin's Hall (Ered Lun), and Celondim (Ered Luin).

To farm some Yellow Onions, you must do the following:

  1. Equip your Farming Tools.
  2. Buy one Apprentice Crop Seed, one Bucket of Water and one Handful of Fertilizer from a Novice Farmhand.
  3. Find some Farmland, and execute the farming recipe.
  4. Harvest your crops, and reap the rewards!


From a simple breakfast to a mighty feast, it is said that an army marches on its stomach! Whether feeding a fellowship of heroes, or making a late night snack; a good cook is always welcome.

To make some hard biscuits, you must do the following:

  1. Equip your Cooking Supplies.
  2. Find an Oven.
  3. Using Bundle of Spring Barley, create one Cup of Spring Barley Flour.
  4. Purchase a Chicken Egg from a Supplier or a Novice Cook.
  5. Execute the Hard Biscuits recipe

If done Correctly, you now have a satisfying bit food that will keep for weeks!


As a tailor, you are capable of making the widest variety of armour. Both cloth and leather armour are available to you. Raw cloth can be purchased from a Novice Tailor, while treated hides will need to be processed using your Forester skill.

To craft some leather Padded Armour, you must do the following:

  1. Equip your Tailor's Tools.
  2. Find a Workbench
  3. Create a Leather Pad.
  4. Obtain one Spool of Rough Thread from either a Supplier or Novice Tailor.
  5. Complete the Padded Armour recipe.
