Osgiliath has been plagued by disaster. Castamir's supporters burned the city during the Kin-strife, and repairs never restored its original beauty. Then the city was devastated by the Plague, losing half of it's citizens in a few short months. The King moved his seat to Minas Anor, leaving only a desperate few to live among the crumbling buildings. A small but able detachment of soldiers guard the decrepit bridge across the Anduin. Despite it's strategic importance as a river-crossing, the King is almost helpless to prevent the decline of what was once the most beautiful city of Gondor into a pathetic ruin and a den of brigands.
