RJ-RotWK 1.06 BETA has been released!



After the year+ wait, the next public beta has been released. All of the details can be found by following the link and browsing the news topics:


So much mod to explore and enjoy with 10 factions (Rohan, Men of the East, & Arnor Added, Elves split out), combo hordes, the more than 30 maps added, new map play styles that blend BFME1 & BFME2, over 35+ RotWK maps with the new camera system and skies. Explore Middle Earth once again and rediscover the joy of BFME! (All screenshots below were taken directly from actual gameplay!)

For the short term, the mod without an installer is available. I'll be creating and uploading one with the installer.

Thank you for playing, and a huge thank you goes out to all of the team members and the beta testers to make this possible,
Robert J.

RJ what exactly is keeping you from continuing the modification? Sure it's not such a large project as Edain but personally I love your additions very much. Consider taking up the mod again and make some more progress. :)

Outside of the RJ/Phaelen mod, my favorite has been the "Rise of Wizards" mod which grants an assortment of powers to every class of Create-a-Heroes. The cost structure is a little different but they are useful and enjoyable. Can this mod incorporate in new CaH powers? I seriously doubt that the RJ-mod would survive swapping out the INI file with that in the "Rise of Wizards" mod. Oh but if they were integrated!

Of course I enjoy playing two-player RTSGs with my shockingly attractive Mrs but I have not been able to do this in Middle Earth. I do own one "anthology" set which includes play discs both for BFME2 and RotWK. I don't want to buy a second copy of the game ($300 often) just to play in-house. Does anyone know a way either to work around buying another set or acquiring a RotWK second copy on the cheap?
