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.

To mount rohan heros you have to build a stable. ;)
Without the stable they can't mount, with the stable they can.

The problemw ith Erkenbrand is that all different places for heros are already allocated by other heros. He would just be a clone of other heros. (He would be very similar to Theodred.)
As a power he is unique and it fits perfectly to the books. :)

Sorry, I have no idea.:D
Those bugs normally appears when there were troubles with the internet while downloading the mod. Do you have friends who were able to install the mod without problems? Then perhaps just take their installer via USB and try to install it this way.
Or try redownloading again...^^ It SHOULD work and works for 99% of the people... I don't know exactly why it doesn't for you.

Hmm... I never had the problem, but can you play without the mod? The mod shouldn't be the reason for this problem.
Try this:
Uninstall edain and rotw.
Install rotw.
Test if it works.
Install patch 2.01.
Test if it works.
Install Edain.

2. There are some, but we won't add more. In the lotr no character had any teleport abilities.^^

Submods are always mods which aren't made by us, but by fans. All we have to do with those is that we allow them to do it. :P

The custom heros have notghint to do with cheats.^^
They are just not compatible with the edian mod. The problem is that edian already reached the limits of the engine, so we had to delete the cah from the game to get more space. (and the remove of the cah gave us very much more space)
If we would integrate them again following bugs would appear:
- No savegame could be loaded.
- the game would crash much oftener, normally it would crash after ~5-10 minutes ingame
- some people wouldn't be able to start the game.

Therefore the decision is:
Either cah or all our new features.^^

Gondor is one of the weakest factions. Goblins and Mordor are much stronger.
Atm you just have to spam orcpits and produce new orc hordes all the time. If you add a few archers and trolls to this spam your enemy should have no chance.

And Mordor had walls, true.
But there was never a siege in the third age. And those walls were either not build by mordor, but by the numenorians or were build thousands of years ago and it took hundreds of years to build them.
Additionally mordor would be very bad at defending castles, as they don't have good long ranged archers and without those the fortresses would just be for show and even if you could climb the walls... every enemy could just kill your units from far away. It would be a useless feature for this faction.

Not really and even if - it would be horrible.
You wouldn't be able to kill the creeps and as we're adding a new building system in the next version, most build plots wouldn't be useable in that time. => you could do nearly nothing.
And if you could train units, but wouldn't be able to attack the enemy you could just move all your units in the middle of the enemies fortress and attack as soon as the peace time is over.

Perhaps.
The most important thing about heros is always that they have to be unique.^^
Of course we could just add more heros, but we want every hero tro be unique and have his own place and playstyle in a faction.

It will only make us work slowler... ;)
Just try to be a bit more polit if you want us to do what you want. But if you would have read the news... the next version will be in english. as soon as we have finished the version you will have your english version.
@ debeul: We never give any release dates.

As I have written in the PM:
The ability gives you power points. You will always get as many points as "Gelehrte" you have.
