Southron

From LOTR-TCG Wiki

Southron is an unloaded keyword appearing on Minions from the Culture Raider.svg Raider culture.

Haradrim is an old elvish name, consisting of the elements harad ("south") + rim ("host") thus meaning "South-people". They were a race of Men from Harad in the region of Middle-earth directly south of Gondor. Sauron corrupted them and called them to war. For many years, the Haradrim were the greatest enemy of Gondor. The Haradrim had tamed the massive Mûmakil beasts and used them in warfare. They even strapped towers on their backs, used by Haradrim archers and spearmen.
