During Narmacil's reign a new confederacy of many peoples called the Wainriders appeared from the East. Encouraged by emissaries from Sauron they suddenly assaulted Gondor. Narmacil brought a great army into the plains south of Mirkwood and gathered what remnants of the Northmen we could to meet the threat. However, these new enemies were stronger and better armed than before, traveling in great wains with warriors mounted in chariots. In the Battle of the Plains Narmacil was slain north-east of the Morannon. Thereafter the people of southern and eastern Rhovanion were enslaved while the border of Gondor was withdrawn to the Anduin.
