You may also want to try some submods for TLD:
1) Mod introducing smoother and nicer battle animations http://forums.taleworlds.com/index.php/topic,201177.0.html
2) Mod introducing female versions of many armors  http://mbx.streetofeyes.com/index.php/topic,2489.0.html

NOTE! Before you explode with joy, and start soiling the topic with telling us about your ejaculations and such, we must add a sobering warning:
The release IS NOT bug free, in fact we already know some, and expect MANY more unexpected bugs, appearance of broken stuff, crashes, etc to start pouring in reports by you, the players. Hence the bug reports will be welcomed on our MBX forum. The next couple of months will then be used for making ready and available patches and additional features to the mod, ones that we simply did not have time to add in now. That will also mean that any game progress you will make will be lost when any patch comes, as it will most likely NOT BE save game compatible. After a patch ALWAYS start a new game or you will report non-existent bugs carried over in the save game.

The Official TLD Forum:
Our main forum is on MBX: http://mbx.streetofeyes.com/index.php/board,20.0.html
It also features a bug reporting topic for the expected bugs.
Make an account there if you have any questions or comments for us: http://mbx.streetofeyes.com/index.php/topic,2464.0.html

As you see I wear that title with pride. If not catering to every lazy douche's whims and whines makes me an arrogant douche, then hell yea...arrogant douche 4 life!

The Last Days Tips:

You choose your faction at the start and you can't change it later. You can also choose from different races: a man, an elf, a dwarf, an uruk or an orc. Remember that both the faction and the race you choose will limit you in certain ways. Some factions provide excellent soldiers, but few of them. Some have weak troops, but you can hire many. Smaller orcs can't wear armors designed for big guys, but can ride some beasts instead. Dwarves have exceptional gear, but can't ride mounts at all.

Due to the nature of the Middle Earth setting, you can't create your own kingdom, or rebel mid-game and change sides. You choose a faction and you fight for it until your side wins the great war, or untill your faction gets wiped out. In that case you can still keep fighting for your allies.

There is no money in TLD. Instead you develop relationships with factions - represented by resources, influence and rank.
Resources are what's needed to sustain the faction in war - you can redeem looted scraps and items for it and you're also given a certain number of resources each week depending on rank.
Each faction has its own resource/influence/rank pool, remember that! They will supply you with armour, horses, soldiers for you to command and companions to follow you, but only if you bring enough resources for their pool.

Due to being true to lore, we have also disabled by default the option of crossdressing, as a Gondorian wouldn't likely ever wear looted Orc armour, and vice versa. Instead after battle, "metal scraps" are dropped, which represent salvageable equipment and can then be traded with your smiths who require resources, to get proper faction gear from them.

Influence points are awarded for finishing quests and winning tough battles. They can later be spent  on special items as a reward from the rulers of factions you got the influence with.

Rank points allow you to rise up in the ranks of your faction - this will determine your max party size, weekly resource income and unlock other stuff.

At the beginning of the game the War between good and evil hasn't started yet. You'll be notified when it does. While Middle Earth might look like a pretty empty and quiet  place at start, it gets filled with hostile parties very quickly once the War starts. Be prepared and use your few days of peace wisely!
You can perform quests for the lords and leaders of all allied factions, raise troops and train yourself in the barracks.

The war itself can be won, unlike in the original MnB. Every faction has a strength - which moves according to faction successes or failures in battles. With strength dropping low enough, it becomes possible for enemies to siege faction cities/camps. When a faction drops to the lowest status, it is possible to defeat it completely by storming its capital.

Note that player himself cannot initiate sieges in TLD. He can only help his faction and allies in siege battles if they decide that it is time to go storm the enemy settlement.

There are several theatres of war in TLD, defined by geography. When one side eliminates all the enemies in its current theatre, it will spawn an expeditionary force, which will build advance camp on the other theatre and help allies there. If the good forces are completely defeated, but Mordor and Isengard still stand strong, the two towers will battle each other over total dominance.

What's there for you to do in TLD, in a nutshell: raise your troops, develop your character, help your allied factions with battles and quests. Rise up in ranks, get special items, explore locations, talk to different people, maybe you would learn something useful

And of course, have fun!

1. General questions poll answers, after 388 votes cast:

When is TLD going to be released? Asked 200 times (51.5%)
31.10.2011 (on Halloween, because it's a monster of a mod), sometimes during the day, we suppose, when all uploading is done.
Later patches and upgrades will be announced as they near completion.

Is TLD for Warband? Asked 95 times (24.5%)
No. For Mount & Blade 1.011.
A Warband port is NOT planned.
We'll see about M&B2, if it's ever made.

Is TLD a LOTR movie mod? Asked 13 times (3.4%)
No. TLD is based off Tolkien's books.
Except in certain details, where movies didn't contradict books or where some solution was in our opinion handled better than in books.

Are there hobbits, Aragorn, Legolas, Gimli in the mod? Asked 80 times (20.6%)
The Fellowship had their own agenda.
In TLD you play a random guy from any the many factions, so not very likely to run into anyone from the Fellowship.
We have however already included or plan to include some recognisable chracters as encounters or in missions, just to spice up your TLD enjoyment a bit more.

2. Installation poll answers after 363 votes cast:

I didn't read instructions and got "windy_flora" error.     36 (9.9%)

Just when I decided to fix up my game too.
The purpose of science is to shine a light in the darkness, and lasers do it hard enough to set the darkness on fire.
Fairy tales aren't there to tell you Dragons exist. They're there to tell you that Dragons can be killed.

Hurrah
"When the castle falls, all those inside will be put to the sword. Your herds will be butchered, your godswood will be felled, your keeps and towers will burn. I'll pull your walls down, and divert the Tumblestone over the ruins. By the time I'm done no man will ever know that a castle once stood here." Jaime got to his feet. "Your wife may whelp before that. You'll want your child, I expect. I'll send him to you when he's born. With a trebuchet."

That's a helluva great decision 'cause hunting bugs by dev team alone means 2,5% effectiveness :D Looking forward to play soooooooooooooooooooooooo loooooooooooooooooooooooooooong awaited masterpiece.
