Alrighty folks, our very own forum is now set up. It'd be great if we could head off over there, as then we aren't encroaching on Taleworlds' legality. Make an account and feel free to post. It's a work in progress but it's there - just expect regular changes and updates so take it with a pinch of salt. Cheers guys, I look forward to seeing you there!

Merge with X mod!


I am very aware that there are a few Lotr mods out there. However, I don't want to merge, join, or differ to them. This is for several reasons.
a) I love modding, and this is something I've always wanted to do.
b) The other mods are rather unprofessional. Spelling mistakes, lore mistakes, and bad management. I'm English myself, so that solves the first issue. I've read all the books, (and watched the films of course), so I know the lore. I've read Tolkien's other works such as the Silmarillion, and several other books about Middle Earth of which I can't remember the name. As for management... I guess we'll have to see how I do, eh?
c) Those mods don't see much development. I have the capability, determination and passion to see this through.





In regard to "The Last Days"

I love the mod, but I find it lacking in two areas.
a) It's for the original Mount&Blade. The dated graphics, animations, and enginelimitations just slightly spoil TLD for me. So, this project is definitely not intended to undermine such an amazing mod.
b) The possibilities for the player are not as diverse as they were in Warband. I'd love to see the kingdoms players of this mod create, and also, it's Warband that most people play nowadays.

I don't want to see it that way.
Your mod is set in a completely different part of Middle Earth to mine.
I really don't want to compete :P
A massive good luck for the Forofren Auth mod :)

Thank you guys, for all your nice comments!

Unfortunately, it's impossible to sexually harass and abuse an undead wraith due to Warband's engine limitations.

Looking good! Are you planning on adding special features, or will the AI be mostly native?



Also, I read a Cracked article in which I saw tons of really cool off helmets. Want me to get you a link for the future?

I don't know yet, I'm finishing the bare-bones stuff first.
Currently doing Gondor troops as we speak!

That'd be great!

What do you plan to do in regards to the fellowship and the other heroes?

 Will they feature as NPCs or will you be able to play as them?

Personally i would love to play as Aragorn and reforge the realm of the numenoreans in fire and blood.
