Numenor was a large island far from the coasts of Middle-earth, inhabited by the
descendents of the Men that had served the Noldor in the first age. This lists covers
Numenorean armies from when the first permanent havens were set up in Endor around
the year 1200 of the second age, until the start of the third age, including the
Kingdoms in Exile, Gondor and Arnor, after the fall of Numenor proper in 2A3319.
Numenoreans did not fight on horseback, leaving the job of scouting to bow-armed light
horse generally of foreign origin. Guards wore black and silver. Archers were organized
into cohorts and had steel bows. It is uncertain what secondary arms were carried. Numenorean ships were large, with towers and many masts. They might be equipped with auxiliary oars. Noldor allies cannot be used with other allies. Allied contingents drawn from this list need not contain any guards.
