For ages past, Lothlorien - formerly Laurelindorenan and Lorinand - remained a sanctuary for elves, a safe haven that blossomed and prospered in the care and leadership of Lord Celeborn and Lady Galadriel. Now in the Third Age, the darkness of Sauron returns, and with the One Ring discovered, his never-ending malice threatens Middle-earth once more.
Soon, the forces of Dol Guldur will lay waste upon the lands of Rhovanion. Hence, before such a tragedy comes, the Lord and the Lady of the Wood gathered a group of traveling elves and gave them a task - to unite all elvenkind across Middle-earth against the forces of the Dark Lord Sauron. However, they alone may not be enough as the threat on Rhovanion looms ever heavier. A second task was given - to form an alliance with the Beornings of the Vales of Anduin, north of Lothlorien. Only then shall this host succeed - the Host of the Golden Wood.
Dol Guldur must fall.
