The Battle of the Five Armies centres on the build up of military forces in the area of Mirkwood and the Misty Mountains, prior to the Battle of the Five Armies in The Third Age 2941, and the battle itself. The Free Peoples, on hearing that the dragon Smaug is dead and that the treasure of the Lonely mountain now stands unguarded, are intent on claiming that part of the treasure they consider rightfully theirs, and united in their hatred of the Goblins and Warg Riders. The Dark Servants, well aware of the events that have been unfolding, see no reason that they themselves should not profit from the situation, or at least cause misery amongst the Free peoples
