Book 3: Chapter 2 - Into the Cold North

It was in the beginning of the reign of Malvegil of Arthedain that evil came to Arnor. For at that time the realm of Angmar arose in the North beyond the Ettenmoors. Its lands lay on both sides of the Mountains, and there were gathered many evil men, and Orcs, and other fell creatures. The lord of that land was known as the Witch-king, but it was not known until later that he was indeed the chief of the Ringwraiths, who came north with the purpose of destroying the Dúnedain in Arnor, seeing hope in their disunion, while Gondor was strong.

Ruins of the North is a game set in the north of Eriador in the ruins of Arnor between the years of The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings. Using the One Ring RPG system the game will explore the legacy of the Dunedain and the dangers returned to that part of Middle-earth.

The children and prisoners are in 'barred alcoves' basically prison/dungeon cells, locked behind bars. Just FYI. You would have a hard time to shooting the children even on purpose. The prisoners are Hill Men, the Children you are here to save, and some unruly goblins. The guards are all Orcs and Goblins, there are no Men Guards.
You pause at the door, you have only a few moments to decide on a course of action as you risk being seen, your light at the door, and your number of people. Keen eyes pick out the orcs and goblins that are guards, noting that there are no Men among them. In the dungeon cells, behind the bars, are the children, some openly weeping, others there are too Men and Goblin prisoners also.

Halleth gestures to Freach. "Your voice is the most likely to fool them--you speak with a Hill Man's accent normally. Call out saying you need a few hands to help with intruders. Then we will ambush them as they step in."

Telurin nods at this and begins to lead the others toward a side passage, giving them more perhaps a few more moments to discuss the plan before being spotted.

Hartley like the plan and draws his bow ready to take out the guards or anyone who ties to sound an alarm.
