The precursor to my Kings of the West mod, Shadows of Evil contains many of my previously released mini-mods combined into one large mod. The mod focuses on Mordor and Isengard with no changes to Gondor or Rohan.

Some of the basics of the mod:
-Compatible with patch 1.03 of BFME I as well as online multiplayer.
-Completely finished and released mod

Additions or changes to Gameplay:
-New Mordor Hero: Khamul the Easterling. Not the nazgul Khamul but rather a rhun pikeman who leads by example with his leadership (+250 Experience, +50% Armor, +200% Damage ), Pillage, and Blade Master powers. At a cost of only 1200 he is the perfect early game hero for mordor.

-Adds the Witch-King on foot, with a toggle to mount his Fellbeast
-Adds the following powers to the Witch-King on foot:
*Leadership (+100% Experience, +50% Armor, +200% Damage),
*Toggle between War Mace and Sword,
*'Morgul Blade' Special Power (Reduces target Speed to 25%, armour to 50%, and Damage to 50%),
*'The Black Breath' (Basically Saruman's Wormtongue power with a slightly larger radius),
*'This is my Hour' (Blast that kills all enemy heroes in radius... includes new audio and an awesome new FX),
*Mount Fellbeast

-The following powers are added to Saruman, who now starts at level 10:
*"Industry" (Spell similar to the existing Industry only with a base-wide radius)
*"Word of Power" (Red WoP identical to Gandalf's WoP, only its red)

-The mod also contains 12 new team colors for Skirmish and Multiplayer (in addition to the original colors). The colors included are:
-2 shades of grey
-Black, white
-New red, blue, teal, gold, and yellow
-Hot Pink and Neon Green
-Gray Green (Awesome Rohan/Fellowship color. It's the color of the Fellowship's Lothlorien cloaks)

The mod comes with an installer that you can run for easy installation.
