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.

Estel. Thorongil. The Dúnadan. Strider. Elessar. Telcontar.


Aragorn II, son of Arathorn has gone by many names throughout his long years.


In Age of the Ring, we wanted to represent his many identities throughout the time of the War of the Ring.


From his first appearance at the Prancing Pony...



"He's one of them rangers. Dangerous folk they are — wandering the wilds..."


To him guiding the Hobbits from Bree to Rivendell...



"I think a servant of the enemy would look fairer, but feel fouler..."


To his battle with the Uruks at Amon Hen...



"Elendil!"


Giving chase to Merry and Pippin's captors...



"We will not abandon Merry and Pippin to torment and death.
Leave all that can be spared behind. We travel light. Let's hunt some Orc."


To him defending the people of Rohan at their fortress at Helm's Deep...



"Show them no mercy, for you shall receive none!"


Coming to the rescue at the Battle of the Pelennor...



"Late, as usual... pirate scum!"

To coming to terms with his fate and giving Frodo one last chance...



"An hour of wolves and shattered shields, when the Age of Men comes crashing down...
but it is not this day! This day we fight!"


To finally being crowned King of Gondor and Arnor.



"Out of the Great Sea,

to Middle-earth I am come

In this place I will abide,

and my heirs,

unto the ending of the world."

In conclusion, here's some screenshots of his various costumes in the game.

Congratulations, MathijsRevora & AoR team. This mod already looks better than almost all BFME2 mods, and your recent additions, the Dunedain and the Variags are marvellous.

Your Variag of Khand, does actually look similar to the Variags from The Last Days mod for Mount and Blade: Media.moddb.com

I do not know if you will make more Variag units, but I think, since you had a similar design in mind, TLD might be a good source of inspiration for you.


A further note, I do not know what your goals for the remote future are, but may I suggest as factions for the most final version mod:

Gondor (with all the fiefdoms); Rohan; Dwarves(Includes men of Dale and Beornings) ; Imladris(Rivendell&Dunedain;); Lothlorien ; Mirkwood

Mordor* ; Isengard(includes Dunlendlings) ; Harad ; Rhun ; Misty Mountains

*Mordor can summon a fortress of Umbar Corsairs/Black Numenoreans OR a Fortress of Variags of Khand from the spellbook just like Gondor has the Dol Amroth Citadel.

The current downloadable version, still titled The Horse Lords, is on this profile. The latest version (ie. the one we've been showing) isn't released yet.

Installation instructions are included, as well as readable on this profile.

With the new animations and stances, we're going to make Anorien spearmen the same way they forme the shield wall in RotK, with Gandalf to support them.

"You are soldiers of Gondor! No matter what comes through that gate, you will stand your ground!"

Can't wait to play that epic music in the background, with my units impaling those pesky orcs and trolls :p

1. Yeah, the new farm isn't ingame yet.
2. Yep, will be implemented soon.
3. See above.
4. No idea.

The released version will contain finished Gondor, Isengard, Mordor, and Misty Mountains factions, meaning the above features will be implemented by then.
