Hi, mates, what's up? I guess, since Haradwaith is already planned, that Umbar won't appear as other different faction. Still so, i wanted to share the idea what i had about suggest it as a separated faction from Harad. I was mostly inspired in Ar-Adûnaim's faction from DaC's mod, Lotr's lore & added something from my own too. Then, this is what i've done for Umbar, a naval faction. Anyways, i hope you enjoy reading it:
Azruthor (Black Númenórean Sorcerer)
Dalamyr (Hight Priest of Umbar/Black Mague)
Indûr (Fourth of the Nine, Ringwraith)
Balakhôr, the Scourge (Corsair Admiral)
Câssimir, Lord of Stones (see Haradwaith's Faction)
Berúthiel, The Black Queen (see Haradwaith's Faction)
Burôdapân, Lord of Waves (see Haradwaith's Faction). He would require Shrine of Ossë, Fortress upgrade.
*I may add the heroe's power to Azruthor, Dalamyr, Indûr & Balakhôr, if people would like it.*
