DCI: Last Alliance is the independent sequel to Dúnedain Counter Invasions: Tôl Acharn and is a WIP (Work In Progress) submod to Third Age: Total War.
For faction previews, see below (click READ MORE)

Take the role as Gil-galad, last High-king of the Noldor, or Elendil, High-king of the Númenóreans in exile, as they rally Elves and honourable Men into the League which is called the Last Alliance, at the end of the Second Age.
The counter-invasion Tôl Acharn, 'Vengeance Comes', allow you to move mighty hosts against the Dark Lord.
Strenghten the cause of the League if you wish to, as the indomitable Durin IV of Khazad-dûm or as the brave riders of Rhovanion (using DCI mechanic).

Unless you instead fulfill the will of Sauron? Unleash the hunger of Orcs and wolves, be the warlord over the Easterlings, command the savage natives of Eriador to recapture their homelands or reign as a Black Númenórean lord at the head of the grim Haradrim, in the Invasion of the West.

Will the Men of the Mountain be loyal to the Númenóreans or become the Oathbreakers? The choice is yours.

Tôl Acharn and DCI mechanics in short

The "Tôl Acharn" is a 'counter invasion', the M2 Jihad-feature renamed; just as TATW have the "Invasion" for the evil factions, which in turn is the Crusade-feature renamed .
Factions with the culture 'Hosts of the West' [religion islam] can join the Tôl Acharns at will. The uniqe DCI mechanics allow factions of other cultures [religions] to temporary join the Tôl Acharn, if allied to the calling faction of the 'counter invasion'.

  • Third Age campaign map adapted to Last Alliance era - Preview video
  • New battle map settlements - Preview#1 * #2 * #3 * #4 *
  • New UI (interface, menu, loading screens, units cards) - Preview faction symbols
  • Extensive new rosters and unit models
  • All new unit stats, prices and recruitment system
  • Custom prominent genrals on the battlefield like Elendil, Elrond, Galadriel etc.
  • New buildings
  • New scripts (exemple: Tôl Acharn script, Immortal Nazgûl, the One Ring-events)
  • Palantirir: six truely useful palantirs, now without drawbacks

The DCI:LA team presents

The DCI Map

The Second Age strategy map is a modified version of the Third Age:Total War-map, with uniqe custom changes.
All map work credited to Withwnar.

The focus of the presentation are the new regions, border changes and other climate & terrain edits.
The video do not go into name- or size-changes of settlements, nor the strat models or custom settlements, though the latter may become focus of a video in the future.

As my first ingame video I take any shortcomings upon myself, but hope you shall enjoy:

Youtube source: Youtu.be

With an extra thanks to Loreanya for encouraging words ^^
Best regards Ngugi

Will there be any updates after the initial release?

For sure; there will always be flaws and unbalances to tweak once out, hehe, and even some occasional bug to remove, so there for sure will be some patches, that likely will contain some extra new content.
But it shall be noted that DCI:LA has been created from day 1 with a vision, a goal, and we have worked hard to makes this vision come true.
Unless some real new/uniqe feature appear that we might find appealing to add, once we ironed out all issues we can and balance is settled, DCI:LA will be finished.

Ergo, this therefore will not be the kind of mod that is worked on forever and ever, adding new stuff in version after version simply because we can (but without a final goal), until we lose energy and the mod dies still semi-WIP, hehe. We prefere it finished instead ;)

No worry :)
The SA tends to be the Age folks know or remember the least, so I don't mind to elaborate.
If you're interested in lore, I can suggest my own Second Age videos, made for such a matter: Moddb.com

Umbar was a Númenórean haven/colony, yes, fortified in 2280 of the Second Age. However Númenor sank into the Sea in 3319, and this campaign starts in 3429.

At this/our time, the Númenóreans in Umbar and elsewhere in south and east are those known as Black Númenóreans, and among them the lords Herumor and Fuiniur rule in [known] Harad.
