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.
Tunnelers are a new siege weapon of the Misty Mountains, their counterpart to Mordor's siege towers and Isengard's ladders. They can quickly dig a tunnel from their position to a nearby point, bypassing foes or walls and creating an entrance for your units into an opposing castle. These tunnels are not only connected to each other, but also to a network of all tunnels you own, including the tunnels in your base. However, a symbol will appear on the ground shortly before the exit erupts from the ground, giving the enemy a small window to prepare for your arrival. Furthermore, a group of tunnelers will disappear after they have dug into the ground and the tunnel will have few hitpoints and collapse after a short time - use your tunnelers carefully!
