Third Battle - Dagor Aglareb (The Glorious Battle)
After deciding that the time was right and Elves were otherwise occupied, Morgoth once more sent forth a great host of Orcs. Numerous bands made raids throughout the east and west while the main force attacked Dorthonion. However they were attacked on both sides by the forces of Fingolfin and Maedhros and were beaten back to the gates of Angband, where the remnants were destroyed. After this battle, Morgoth realised that unaided, his Orcs were no match for the Elves. This scenario begins as the Forces of Morgoth are attacking Dorthonion and the armies of Fingolfin and Maedhros attacking the orcs from both sides.
