The Easterlings of TOS have long been in the making. Their capital, Mistrand, rivals that of any city in Middle Earth. It is considered by some, even, to be the greatest city in all the world. Their Khan, Joetatoe is also their founder.

Rhudel was founded early 2016 by three admins: Joetatoe, who was the ruler of Isengard, aidenbastion, who was the former ruler of the Grey Mountains as well as Mordor, and TheOneGoran, who had briefly led Lothlorien. They were soon joined by SirWilsonGS, the former ruler of Gundabad, creating a formidable force. Construction of the city of Mistrand started, and after its construction began, tchri006, a veteran Isengard player joined as well. In February 2016, BDduece, the former ruler of Mordor founded Khand as a Rhudel vassal, while TheKrimsonWolf established the Balchoth as another vassal. Finally, the Avarin Elves under Aventuras were incorporated as a third vassal state.
In June 2016, Minecraft_forevr was removed as the ruler of the Tauredain due to inactivity, and Gilingipho was named ruler of the Tauredain. This angered the Confederation of the East (Rhudel and Vassals), who convinced MCF to return to the server and lay claim to the throne. The two rival governments sustained a standoff for about a month until an accord was reached in which MCF and his lieutenant julienroma received the southern half of the jungle as part of the Confederacy, while Gilingapho ruled the northern half as part of the Astrasi Empire.
The Easterling led Confederacy, however, continued expanding, with the Queen of the Half-Trolls, Yoeki, joining the Confederacy. The Astrasi Empire, keen to limit Rhudel’s influence in Harad quickly approached Yoeki and convinced her to leave her Rhudel allies and join the Empire instead, ending Rhudel’s influence in Pertiogwaith.
Over the course of the next year, Rhudel’s influence began to diminish with the Avarin Elves leaving the Confederacy and the Balchoth falling into complete inactivity. In August 2017, aidenbastion, general of the armies led a group of players which began harassing the Easterling’s Haradrim allies. SirWilsonGS left the faction over this scuffle, and after aiden was at last forced to abandon his plan he fell deep into inactivity. Two months later, on October 21st 2017, the two Tauredain kingdoms merged together, independent from both the Empire and Confederacy, thus ending Rhudel’s influence in Harad. Khand, meanwhile, fell completely into inactivity, leaving Rhudel, whose population had fallen to a few players alone in its once great alliance.
On March 9th 2018, Khan Joetatoe took a break from the server and left tchri006, the last remaining Easterling as acting Khan. While he initially had some success with recruiting, tchri eventually went inactive, leaving the Easterlings leaderless. A year later on March 28th 2019, Jag_sic was named the new acting leader. Under Jag, Rhudel joined the Shadow Pact and established non-aggression treaties with numerous factions in the East, but he departed the faction on June 23rd, and tchri was reappointed as acting leader.

Warrior (Citizen): The warrior is the main rank of Rhudel. When not in wartime, they are ordinary civilians. They may chose to live in a city where they will be assigned (or they can choose if the warlord wills it) a job to help in the city.
