Greater Harad is a supplement (in the Campaign-series) for Middle-earth Role Playing, 1st Edition.

[edit] Cover/Jacket Text

South and east of the burning sands of Far Harad lie the cities of Sîrayn. They command the thriving trade routes of Greater Harad, a fertile riverine domain tucked between the harsh desert and the daunting spires of the Yellow Mountains. Dynasties come and go in this vast, cosmopolitan oasis. Amidst mercantile rivalries, a new terror confronts the Haradrim. Akhôrahil the Ringwraith - the awful Storm King - plots the conquest of Greater Harad.

Seek your fortune in the lands of Greater Harad where merchant-lords dominate the roads and sinister tyrant enthroned in Tûl Isra rules the once independent cities. Dark minions sway the populace, and slavery thrives. Whispered tales about Obed of the Másra hint that the hero's legendary weapons lie unclaimed in a ruined catacomb.
