The Adari

The Adari; also commonly known as "Darklanders" or "Saugreth," is a proud race of men that created the great kingdom of Adar in the Fourth Age.

he Adari were originally ethnic Amari, who ventured into the eastern Corwyn to create a new kingdom to rival their home realm of Amar. and conquered the Gauth, Hakeen, and Üthrari peoples of that region. But they soon fell under the sway of the Gauth, just as the Gauth had fallen under the sway of the Dark-Elves.

The two races intermingled and the mixture of Amari blood with Gauth became the race of the Adari. After the War of the Pretender, the eastern Amari were expelled permanently to the East to dwell as outcasts or ‘Saugreth.’

That term still describes them today. The Adari folk are tall and proud, with predominantly black hair, light greyish-tan skin and bright eyes of blue, hazel, or grey. The Gauth consider these hybrids a lesser race and almost subhuman. The Adari people speak Adari, which is a mixture of Amari and Gauth, and there are no dialects. The Adari are one of the most common races found in eastern Corwyn today, but are rarer in western Corwyn. Because of their birthplace in the East; the Adari are infected with the "Taint."

Common Adari names include: Bronn, Gorn, Kern, Kharg, Mhorg, Vharg, Vorn, and Zorn.

ADARI: A mixture of the ancient Amari and Gauth languages. It is still commonly spoken in the East and in the region of the Khorlann Steppes. Adari is the official language of the realm of Morgoth, and is commonly understood by most orc tribes in that realm as well.
