Age of the Ring
Greenwood is a wild and dangerous faction based around stealth and ambushes. Basic Mirkwood units, while more numerous than Rivendell and Lorien units, have very low armor and will struggle early game. The player will need to make use of Greenwood's extensive roster of buff/debuff spells to tip the scales of each confrontation. Greenwood has access to elite units that are expensive and take up high amounts of CP.
