Today’s trailer for The Lord of the Rings Online introduces the game’s new (and toothy) villain, Dulgabeth. He was apparently sent to command the armies of Mordor in the Battle of the Black Gate and, after Sauron’s downfall, he’s planning to step into the power void and rule over Mordor. Hey, he can’t be worse than the previous management, can he?

There’s literally no other information about Dulgabeth available on the internet, though some are comparing him to the Mouth of Sauron. The Mouth had no official name in the books; in fact, Tolkien said that he had even forgotten his own name. So Dulgabeth probably isn’t that semi-notable character, but someone totally new and invented by SSG. And that’s your Tolkien lore session for the day!
