Age of the Ring is a mod for Rise of the Witch-king.
It's set during the final years of the Third Age of Middle-earth,
and features content from both The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings film trilogies
and J.R.R. Tolkien's novels. Our primary goal is to represent the cultures,
warriors, and heroes of that era in a way that is accurate
to the source material, engaging in terms of gameplay,
and balanced around RotWK's 2.02 community patch.

  10. Will there be a campaign?

    Generally we only respond to suggestions made in our community forums:
    Forums.revora.net
  12. Will you eventually add in BFME 1 style gameplay?
    No, we’ll be keeping the free-build style.
  13. I want to play the mod but I don’t have BFME2 or RotWK installed.
    We provide clean versions of each game (them being abandonware) plus installation instructions here:
    Forums.revora.net

I installed everything correctly. Follow the steps for 2.02.
I installed The Horse Lords following the steps and everything perfect. Except that the game runs as if it were normal ROTWK. NO mod mnu, no factions, nothing.
Have I skipped any details?

Fixed!
My problem was that in the shortcut I copied it as dictated by the guide -mod C: \ the horse lords ..... And I had created the folder in C: \ games \ the horse lords.
I changed it to the correct destination and it works perfectly!

By the way, great job, I like it.
Although I can not download from the page, the Spanish language, you know, 404, page not found.
If you know of a place to download the language, it would be great.

Thank you very much and greetings from Spain.

It's probably because you're doing it wrong. Please read the instructions carefully and possibly watch the video if something is unclear.

It's not empty. The Horse Lords demo is right there (Horse Lords being the old name of this mod).
