The Haradrim city of Abrakhân sits upon one of the great crossroads of Middle-earth. It is a bloated spider grown fat and wealthy upon a web of trade routes, and the Golden King who rules the city takes his due of the many caravans that ply the roads to and from Khand, Mordor and the corsair city of Umbar.Unlike other Haradrim Kings, Abrakhân’s ruler holds little hatred in his heart for the folk of Gondor, seeing more profit in his illicit trades with the fiefdoms than in open war.Nevertheless, the Golden King fears the Dark Lord as much as any of his peers, and so the Golden Army of Abrâkhan marches to the Pelennor in Sauron’s name.
