Today I want to show you my brand new map : an ENTIRE ERIADOR map!! The concept is simple : it's a 1v1 multiplayer map, where one player controls Frodo and Sam and must quickly flee the Shire to anywhere he could find some help, while the other player controls Mordor with Nazguls and many other things and have to find Frodo and kill him. If Frodo dies, the game is over, Mordor wins. :P But if Frodo survives 40 minutes, he wins and the game is over too.
- When you controls Frodo, you have to explore the map and go wherever you want, and ALL THE HEROES that you can see on your way can join you, you only have to find how. Generally you have to go with Frodo right in front of them, but I let you try some other combinations :P Sometimes you can find simple soldiers, who will join you.
- When you control Mordor, you get an entire Mordor camp with many other buildings. You can explore the map too, and find reinforcements at some places, but much less than Frodo's side.
- Spellbooks of both sides have been adapted, so you can find powers adapted to the situations and places you are exploring. The system has been modified a bit too : you can't get power points by fighting. Now you get the points by exploring, by leveling-up heroes, or simply by time.
Will you follow the films and go to Bree, and Imladris ?
Will you try to find help in the West, to the Grey Havens or Ered Luin ?
Will you try to explore the old Arnor, and try to find the few Dunedain remaining ?
All these things, only YOU will have to decide! ;)
Here are some screenshots of some places of the map : https://modding-union.com/index.php/topic,33421.0.html
Remember that it is a multiplayer map, so you can play vs AI, but don't expect a very good challenge xD I heavily recommend you to play vs another human player.
I also recommend you to not play with ultra settings. Otherwise the game may crash.
