Mordor is the wasteland in the
south of Middle Earth where the dark lord, Sauron lies in the stronghold
tower of Barad-dur. It is also the location of Orodruin, sometimes called
Mount Doom, from whose fire the rings of power were forged and where the
one-ring must be destroyed. Sauron's eye is all seeing and its' gaze is
powerful and controlling. He controls the Black riders and the Ringwraiths -
Nazgul as well as Orcs.
Stronghold standard coinage: Originally minted in iron for the use by the
Dark Lord's minions. The iron (6.00g) and silver (4.70g) coins was struck as
a trade token to extend power southwards. The iron coins were not well
received due to their tendency to rust in the moist climate.
