"Below them ... lay the inner plain stretching away into a formless gloom beyond their sight. The wind of the world blew now from the West, and the great clouds were lifted high, floating away eastward; but still only a grey light came to the dreary fields of Gorgoroth. There smokes trailed on the ground and lurked in hollows, and fumes leaked from fissures in the earth. "
The Return of the King

The Plateau of Gorgoroth is a desolate wasteland that forms a great part of the ashen lands of Mordor.



Camp Plot
Camp Plot - Camp plots are smaller versions of Castles, smaller walls that cannot be manned and fewer defensive plots. In addition, there are fewer plots, requiring that some risks be taken with external economy plots. Camp plots cost 2000 to build.
Outpost Plot
Outpost Plot - Outposts only contain three building plots (unless you build the faction-specific outpost or the dwarven outpost which has 3 defensive plots) They are forward bases meant to support your war effort, acting as either an anchor in enemy territory or as economic support.
Settlement Plot
Settlement Plot - Settlements are small, cheap plots that provide either unit recruitment buildings or economy buildings. They're aren't the most powerful but can prove key in holding economic victory.

Gorgoroth creeps

This map offers an opportunity for a brutal 3v2. Outposts help to protect flanks, and control of the central settlement could be life or death for the two players on the right. As they are at a disadvantage in a 3v2, they have more settlement plots near their bases.

Lair Types

Troll Lair

Cave Troll Lair

Trolls, despite their appearance, are the most efficient creeps, being both easy to creep and very rewarding. The Trolls will always aim for your heroes, often wading through entire battalions to get to them and suffering trample revenge damage. This means that you can easily lure the troll through one or more battalions on aggressive stance to have it suffer heavy damage before turning around with your hero to attack when it turns around. This almost always guarantees an easy kill if well executed. Of course, pikes will make it much easier using this strategy, but even Orc Warriors can kill a troll using this tip. After that destroying its lair is easy and yields a high reward.

Orc Lair

Orc tent lair

Orc lairs are not as common as Goblin lairs but are basically identical besides the appearance. Their orcs deal a very small amount of damage, are high in number and respawn quite quickly. Usually the best strategy is to rush for the lair, cut the flow at the source and then take care of any leaks. Cavalry can also be used to clean up the exteriors but can be tricky due to orc spears being a part of the creeps.
