Welcome to Know Your LotRO Lore, a new weekly column here at Massively showcasing the lore of J.R.R. Tolkien's world as it intersects with Turbine's Lord of the Rings Online.
If you've been following along with Know Your LotRO Lore
for the last few weeks, you're probably caught up with a basic understanding of how Middle-earth was created, and the origins of most of the Free Peoples. Now it's time to get educated on the race of Man
in Middle-earth. Of course this term is not gender-specific, as it can refer to both male and female humankind.
While not immortal like the Elves, the race of Man
became vigorous throughout its time in Middle-earth, eventually leading to the great rise of Man in the Fourth Age. Follow along on our journey through the complete tale of the rise of Man, and why we are the ones who survived until present day.
