Khand is a PvP/Build based evil faction located south-east of mordor. It's capital, Khandwater Ford, is considered to be one of the finest cities in Middle-Earth.
The faction of Khand started when in July 2019 Luqz_ had the idea to build the city that is now Khandwater Ford. He was helped by PafKabouter, Auke123 and lolyourebad, who planned to leave their faction after the server reset. Sadly Luqz_ died in a mining accident shortly afterwards.
Shortly after the reset Khand grew in size due to JuraekuGami and The_Knife_Pie joining. On September 27th 2019, Khand began to take shape when Auke123 became Khan of the Variags. Shortly afterwards they received permission to build at Khandwater ford. The faction received worldwide recognition on February 20th 2020, and became a founding member of the Alliance of the East in March 2020.
In April 2020 tensions began to break out due to Wind Dwarven ownership of North Khand Road and the nearby territory. This caused Khand and the Alliance of the East to declare war on April 11th and they prepared to invade the Wind Mountains. This invasion was called off, however, when the Dwarves surrendered prior to the battle.
On the 28th of June, Auke123 resigned from his post temporarily and appointed ArtPas as the Khan of the Variags. During his rule khand encouraged the recruiting of players for high reward and recruited many new players. On the 20th of July, Artpas resigned from his post and Auke123 was again appointed as Khan of the Variags.
