What’s the proper term for referring to residents of Rohan?  Rohanians?  Rohanese?  Celts?  Whatever nomenclature they prefer, better brush up quick because it sounds like the freshly released content update for Lord of the Rings Online is giving players plenty of reasons to spend time in the Riddermark.

The Epic Story continues! Aid Prince Théodred as he endeavors to keep the forces of Saruman from entering his homeland, the Kingdom of Rohan. Report to Théodred’s camp and help prepare his troops for the trials to come against the armies of Isengard.  The Ford of Isen, the gateway to Rohan, must be held at any cost!
