Twilight of the North
Some Men fled the corruption of Morgoth, but did not enter Beleriand and the influence of the Elves. These men settled in the northern reaches of Middle-earth east of the Blue Mountains – though only a minority crossed the Misty Mountains and became the Northmen of Eriador. They are distant cousins to both the Men of the West and the Men of Darkness, and have dwelt in the western lands of Middle-earth longer than either.
