'It is the Dominion of Men, the Age of Peace, but the roots of Evil run deep and always after a defeat and a respite the Shadow again seeks to assume some new form...The inevitable boredom of Men with that which is good, their quick satiety with peace, has already begun to make itself felt in Middle-earth and fostered another Evil, darker than the shadow that clouds the hearts of Men...The New Shadow has arisen. This is The Fourth Age: Total War!'
'The Fourth Age: Total War - The Dominion of Men' is a modification for 'Rome: Total War - Barbarian Invasion' (v1.6). Our aim with FA:TW was to accurately portray the lands and peoples of Middle-earth as we think they existed approximately three-and-a-half centuries into the Fourth Age. It is based on the works of Tolkien, and especially on his unfinished and abandoned sequel to 'The Lord of the Rings', entitled 'The New Shadow'. With an aim to staying true to the works and spirit of J.R.R. Tolkien's world of Middle-earth, whilst also aspiring to original creative excellence, 'The Fourth Age: Total War' is a must-have for anyone who loves the setting and peoples of Tolkien's mythic world.

"This is one of the best mods for any total war game. It's like a completely new game." (Balgeron, Moddb)
"A great, spectacular and just plainly refined mod. Fourth Age Total War oozes polish from every pore, with a lovingly detailed story, carefully and cleverly constructed gameplay mechanics, stunning visuals and incredible immersion...All in all, I would say there are no perfect mods, but Fourth Age Total War damn well comes close." (SuperTechmarine, Moddb)

The intimidating Minas Ithil joins the list of custom settlements in Dominion of Men. At the start of the mod it lies in ruins, but after the Tower of the Moon is reconstructed it may thrive once again as, and be known far and wide as a symbol of Dúnedanic power and skill.
The rebuilt Tower of the Moon, a reminder that the Dúnedain are still mighty builders and craftsmen.
The rebuilt city of Minas Ithil, in all it's glory.
There have been some other significant changes in patch 3.2, not least the addition of a new unit, courtesy of Arsaces II.
The Rhovanion Rangers have a very interesting history and appear both as an elite AOR unit for Rhovanion and as mercenaries in and around Southern Greenwood.
Also in the above screenshot you might notice the excellent new UI, courtesy of Bercor. Both the Northman and the Dunedain factions now have new, much improved UI interfaces.
Finally, there were some significant changes to the Dorwinion roster, to help that faction develop it's own unique appearance and play-style.
We have also included many minor changes, additions, and bug fixes. For a full list please see the patch notes included in the download.
Work has already begun on the third patch in the series, 'Cities of Middle-earth'. The next release will feature the Middle-earth famous settlement of Bree. Under the rule of the King once again, Bree thrived in the early years of the Fourth Age, becoming one of the most important cities in Arnor.

I must say it was simply AMAZING. First off, I am a fan of all the Lord of the Rings books, and the Silmarillion, and have always wanted to see what happened afterwards. And with this mod for Rome: Total War, you can! You can even change history and not be 'accurate', because , hey! NOTHING HAS BEEN WRITTEN ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED AFTER THE FOURTH AGE! Being able to fight and take cities without the feeling of: Oh, I am Macedon and I just took over Carthage...how historically accurate. You get the feeling…
