"The Black Guards marched at the front of the army and were the complete opposite of the rest of it. They all marched in order and around them everything was quiet. There was no fire in their eyes, but only cold hatred."
The shadow of Angmar, Chapter 1: The Invasion of Angmar (Angmar-RPG

The Shadow Guard are heroic troops from Carn Dûm who are eager to prove themselves on the battlefield. They are heavily armored and deal heavy damage but are expensive and limited to three battalions maximum. Like Angmar's other heroic unit, the Black Knights, they are not affected by Mornamarth's Edict of Carn Dûm.
