DCI: Last Alliance is the independent sequel to Dúnedain Counter Invasions: Tôl Acharn and is a WIP (Work In Prpogress) submod to Third Age: Total War.
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.
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'.
League members that can call and join the Tôl Acharn
Non-League members (can join the Tôl Acharn if player)
Sauron's followers (can call Invasions)
Invasion, Tôl Acharn or neither depending on player choice (Oathbreaker, Oathkeeper or neutral Middle-men)
Hello fellow Tolkien friends and TW players!
These are summaries of the history of the Second Age of Middle-earth, by JRR Tolkien.
I have made them because while many at least remember the intro prolouge of the Fellowship of the Ring-film, most know little or even nothing more than so about the Age we here set our game at the end of, but that has an eventful history as well!
The Eldar establish kingdoms east of the Ered Luin, on Númenor the Edain folks merge into the Dúnedain, Sauron rises as a new Dark Lord after Morgoth, the Rings of Power are created and great wars follow from that, the Dwarves become hated by Sauron for their loyalty to the Noldor, the Númenóreans become corrupted and much more.
Great characters, as for example Gil-galad, Galadriel, Celebrimbor the Ringmaker, Ar-Pharazôn who capture Sauron, Elendil of Arnor and his son Isildur of Gondor, interact against a panorama of over 3000 years.
I hope this shall be an opportunity to get reminded of, or for the first time experience, all that - perhaps even an entertaining opportunity.
NOTE: The history presented is in accordance with what I consider a credible version: because just as with real history, we're in the situation with many, sometimes contradicting, sources. And what sources has precedence, and when or in what details, is open for lore debates.
Ngugi, head of DCI: Last Alliance
