Description
I made this map a long time ago. At the time I thought it was amazing, but now I realise its not even all that good. Feel free to try it though.


Play as one of the eight factions in the struggle for the control of Middle Earth. You start with with your home territories and heros from The Lord of the Rings

UPDATE 1,5 IS OUT
You should see a new file called "ME - The War of the Ring v1,5" in your scenarios folder.
See the change notes for the changes included in this update.

Victory conditions:
Capture at least 14 rings of power as a team to achive an instant victory
Otherwise destroy your enemies by conquest

Powers of Good:
Player 1: Gondor and Rohan (Byzantines)
Player 3: Elves (Britons)
Player 5: Eriador (Franks)
Player 7: Dwarves (Teutons)


Powers of Evil:
Player 2: Mordor (Aztecs)
Player 4: Isengard (Celts)

You can choose different civilizations if you want to in the game lobby.
Also, I suggest locking teams.

Play Nomad (villagers and scouts in boats) or free play (towncenter, villagers and scout) on
these versions

nop,i tested it before,diplomacy chances and i always die thanks to dwarves getting mad at map start

It might be that this is due to bugs with the 4.8 beta patch if you are running that.

doesnt work,and diplomacy changes so the map is bugged

The map is great but it has nothing to do with the book/movies... Also i think that the elfs should be english because of it's special units, that fits better.

This must have been changed in some update to the game :/
Zetnus  [author] May 31, 2016 @ 2:56am 
@Eldwyndor - I just tried it here and can't get it to work -_-

I know it used to work in the past ... in fact, I just tried it in my CD version of the game and it DOES work there...

@Zetnus - When I change my color or team or civilization I always control the Gondor and Rohan. Same when I change the civilization of the AIs. I can't be located on another place in the game preparation on singleplayer mode :/
Zetnus  [author] May 29, 2016 @ 12:27pm 
@Eldwyndor - yes. You have to might have to sequentially line up the civilizations for the AI players to make sure everyone gets the right one though....

Hi,
It is possible to play as player two on singleplayer mode or not ?
