Description

Tales of Middle Earth (ToME) is the first ever fully playable total conversion for AoK based on the works of J.R.R Tolkien. Featuring full 18 realms of Middle-earth including Elves, Men of the West, the Rohirrim, Southrons and the Easterlings, and the evil forces under Mordor and Angmar. Bring to life all your favourite battles and stories from The Lord of the Rings on maps of real Middle-earth locations. From the keen archers of Lórien to the trolls of Mordor; the Rangers of the North to the dreaded giant Mûmakil – as many as 70 new units, with over a hundred new building graphics and wonders from the Middle-earth.


  • Play from the Fall of Beleriand to the Great Years and the War of the Ring.
  • Choose from one of 18 unique factions.
    • Guide the wise and fair elves - Lindon, Rivendell, Mirkwood, Eregion, and Lothlórien.
    • Fall under the sway of the Shadow with Angmar, Mordor, Isengard, Dol Guldur, or Minas Morgûl.
    • Place your hope in the Men of the West with Arnor, Gondor, and fabled Númenor of old.
    • Ride with the Native Men of Rohan, Rhovanion, Harad, Umbar, or Rhûn.
  • Battle on new random maps based on real Middle-earth locations.
  • Research countless new technologies and decide the path of your race with faction choices. Will you ally with the Rohirrim as Isengard, or fall and become a Vassal of Mordor. The choices are yours.
  • Forge alliances to supplement your armies with soldiers from other regions, or even call for the aid of Dwarves and Hobbits.
  • Enjoy the rich world of Middle-earth as presented by one of the largest graphical modification ever produced for Age of Kings. Over a hundred buildings have been designed, including wonders based on famous Middle-earth landmarks like Orthanc, Barad-dûr, The Golden Hall, or Elrond's Homely House. Likewise, nearly 70 new unit graphics have been added, including almost thirty all new units to appear for the very first time in ToME.
  • Create that LotR campaign you always had in mind or play online against a friend! Designed to function in multiplayer, singleplayer, and scenario design.

I was about to report a crash and a few bugs, silly me forgot to update first :P Amazing job, I actually prefer this over BFME 1 & 2, always have preferred older 2D isometric RTS games over the newer 3D ones. They had generally better gameplay (and sometimes graphics!).

Amazing and fun mod, though when playing Isenguard during the second and third age all units had their default textures, is this a bug or are modded skins for the Isenguard faction not in this release?

P.S If you haven't guessed my favorite faction is Isenguard :)

Just like in regular AoK, common units have same textures across the factions. Furthermore, as per Middle-Earth history, Isengard was a fortress of Men until Saruman sided with Mordor. Hence, until you research Vassals of Mordor, Isengard appears like a Westron establishment.

If you research Vassals of Mordor, you get some novel units in Isengard: Orcs, Uruks and Wargs. The other units still represent all the Men in the employ of Isengard.

If it doesn't run, just launch AoK like you normally do. Should work the same.

I have a problem with the game. It can't start and shows this message: Could not initialize graphics system. Make sure that your video card and driver are compatible with DirectDraw. Despite this, I have never had any problem with the game without the mod. Thanks you.

Are you able to run the game using the normal Conquerors shortcut? That will launch ToME just fine.
If not, uninstall ToME and try to run AoK. Does it throw the same error?

People report if the game crashes, you likely do not have the C-Patch installed. Download the C-Patch here: Forums.heavengames.com

We are trying to get in touch with Voobly and GameRanger for adding ToME. Till then, you can play a ToME game by making sure everyone has ToME installed. It should work fine.

Thanks for the bug reports! We plan to update ToME this month with all the bugs fixed. :)

Regarding the suggestions, we don't have more building sets on the high priority list. Currently, we are working on adding heroes, more eye candy objects, and fixing the bugs.
