RJ-RotWK brings the best from each title in the BFME series by EA. As a mod for Rise of the Witch-King, at it's heart it brings 3 new factions to the game. Men of the West has been broken into Gondor and Rohan, with new heroes, units, powers, and more. Arnor has also been fleshed out to be a unique faction with a mix of Men and Elves and more. Men of the East and Mordor has also been split, with Men of the East made up from two smaller sub-factions of Rhun and Harad. The Elves are now made up from three smaller sub-factions of Rivendell, Lothlorien, and Mirkwood. In total, over 70+ new units/heroes/structures and more have been added. Over 20 new maps are included, and much more.

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.

This is, what you get, when you are able to use the SAGE Engine. A well done job Robert.

THANK YOU robnkarla! This is the best mod I've ever downloaded. No joke. Signed up just to say 'good on ya'. Did 3 player LAN last night -no issues, no bugs, just great. We now await eagerly for the finished (or semi-finished) product. Mod of the year when done? Your faithfulness to the LOTR authenticity would make Tolkien smile (or smirk). Keep it up and keep working through the night! Thats an order!! ;-)

Does this mod alter the HP of walls? That was my single biggest complaint about BFME. It makes no sense for a thick stone wall to have fewer hit points than troops.

I love this mod and I would love to build maps using the buildings. I've tried using the Asset Builder to modify the asset file, but it just refuses to actually do anything. I would really appretiate it if you could put the complete asset file in the downloads section so I it's possible to use the mod with the world builder. Thnx
