The Edain Mod aims to take you deeper into Middle-Earth than ever before and create a game worthy of Tolkien's books and Peter Jackson's movies. In our quest for lore accuracy, visual quality and deeper gameplay, we overhauled every aspect of the original game to craft a new, immersive Lord of the Rings experience. Discover the new factions of Lothlorien and Rohan, field new units and heroes for each of the existing factions, enjoy a visual style closer to the movies and unleash the power of the One Ring with individual Ring heroes for every factions. Light or Shadow, Defender or Conqueror... the choice is yours.

Oh, und noch eine Sache, die ich liebe, die Schlacht um Minas Tirith Vollversion spielen würde. konntest du Jungs machen, dass eine Kampagne Mission Ihnen, wie Helms Klamm und haben es ebenso wie die freaken Film hat, weil alle diese Mod Teams wirklich sind keine großen Fans der Serie bin ich mein Zimmer mit Herr der Ringe Filme und Spiele ive geladen gefehlt jemand eine Minas Tirith Version campagin für eine lange Zeit zu schaffen, so informieren Sie bitte ur mod Team ach ja, und fügen Sie bitte Ruine und harad Einheiten, neue Art, die wir noch nie zuvor gesehen, und ein Held Mumakil Marktführer mit einem 200 Prozent Angriffs-und Verteidigungskraft und ein Mumakil kostenlos Horn Macht ebenso wie die rohan theodon Pferd berechnen Sie wissen, warum? denn es war in dem Film und machen sie die tatsächliche Größe aus dem Film, und es wäre soo viel für mich bedeuten, und jeder, my christmas möchten Bitte informieren Sie Ihren mod Team ist. Meine Idee wird Ihre Bewertungen explodieren und legte den freaken Geisterarmee wieder auf Gondor!

Oh and one more thing i would love to play the battle for minas tirith full version. could you guys make that a campaign mission you did with like helms deep and have it just like the freaken movie because all these mod teams realy are not big fans of the series I am my room is loaded with Lord of the rings movies and games ive been wanting someone to create a minas tirith version campaign for a long time so please tell your mod team oh and please add ruin and harad units, new kinds that we never seen before, and a hero mumakil leader with a 200 percent attack and defense power and a mumakil charge horn power just like the rohan theodon horse charge you know why ? because it was in the movie and make them the actual size from the movie and it would mean soo much to me and everyone that is my Christmas wish please tell your mod team. My idea will make your ratings explode and put the freaken ghost army back on gondor!

Please just speak english.^^
As I've understood you don't like the second mission?
Well, it is a EA Games Mission. (it was disabled, we enabled it and made it a bit more difficult)
I personally like the mission very much and most of the others like it too. You just have to collect all the goblin heads.

Such campaign missions are very much work, that's why we don't have more.
I personally have also most of the lotr books and much more . (f.e. I'm wearing this T-Shirt here atm:
Ecx.images-amazon.com

For your new concept:
Well, we don't just put in new units and heros - every hero and every unit should be unique in style and gameplay. You can already get some harad und rhun units via Suladan and Mordor already is one of the factions with the most units.
Additionally Mumakils are already nearly Movie size - you doesn't notice it ingame, but they are.^^ If we would make them even bigger it would look stupid in the game and the handling of them would be horrible.^^

Why should we give the ghost army "back" to gondor?
They still have them, nothing is changed with that.

You have to take the ring with another unit and bring it after that to the hero as you did it with the fortress in the vanilla game.
(it's not possible in another way)

What exactly do you mean with Smaug?
He's too strong?

MP people don't like him, that's true, but I haven't heard complainings in aging about him.^^

The only real mission is: Kill X goblins and collect their heads (the counter is on the left side - the exactly number of heads you need stand in the objectives as normal number... should be 300-500)
The site quest is: Conquer the signal fire to get more troups.

Do you mean Smaug in the campaign? He is undieable there - you have to flee thorugh the small way on the right to get to the platform on the southwest.
In skirmish he is only summoned for a small amount of time - if you have no magic damage the best thing is to run.

@ dre2dre:
The problem is that the siege towers are useless in normal games and for maps like MT it is not possible to teach the AI to use it.

@ kostask:
You can build "Gelehrte" (scholars)
If you use the book power you'll get spellpoints equal to the amount of scholars you have after a short period of time.

No, Radagast is the hero you can recruit after you have bought the spellbook power "Radagast der Braune". You can buy him in the fortress.

And it is possible, but it would take ~200-300 hours per fortress, most likely more. So: No, we won't make it.

You build the Mirkwood barracks on your build plots and recruit Legolas.

Agandur lived whie the war of the ring... he never served the witchking, while he was at angmar. Additionally he is just another invented hero by another game... Additionally we never just add heros - every hero needs to be unique in design, use and gameplay.
Well, we personally like our orcs much more than the one of RJ and I've heard this from other players too, but that's just a point of view - everyone likes different things.

You get them by leveling up the necromancer. On level 3, 6 and 9 you get another legion.

No, we will NEVER forget what the books say.
Our goal is to make the game as close to the books as possible. THen it would be stupid to forget the books, wouldn't it? ;)
The fortresses of RJ really look incredible good, that's true. But I think that our units look very good too. I personally think that RJ has many better buildings (especially fortresses), but I like our units and our gameplay(balance much more. As said before: Everyone thinks different. ;)
YYou say "forget about the books" and also say that Saladin is stupid as he wasn't in the books?
Saladin is no name which is made by Tolkien, that's true. In the books he was called "the black serpent". For factions like the Mote we have to made up a few things as tolkien gave us nearly no informations about them. But we're always just adding new things which could be in the books. So we're always reading the books and think what would fit in the books. Saladin is just a name for the black serpent. He would fit in the books perfectly.
And as also said many times we're working on new factions, but new factions aren't made in one day. There is space for two more factions, more aren't posible. (it would be possible ot add more, but then they would have no AI)
Mordor already has tons of different units. The problem is that if you have 10 different melee fighters, most of them will be useless, as they are all more or less the same. That's why we can't just add them back to Mordor. The gameplay would be crap.

And becoming a video game designer is much more difficult than you think. Have fun with it, but even though you critisize so many things... why are we one of the most played mods and every version gets more than 20.000 downloads?^^
Somehow many people like our mod and think that we're doing the right thing. :P

We deleted the CaH as they caused game crashes all the time. Either 90% of our concepts or the CaH - and as we never liked them we deleted them for our concepts. ;)

The AI is very difficult to program. If we just could say: "Use this!" we would do it... but it isn't that easy, that's why they aren't buying everything.
