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.

Take a look at our community forums to learn more about what is planned.


Note there are no current release dates on future updates,

so please don't ask.


We are currently working on the Erebor faction.
Do you have questions? Make sure to check the FAQ to see if it hasn't already been answered.

The Lord of Ravens

News 8 comments

AotR logo medium


Introducing one of Erebor's unique heroes:

Roäc the Raven-lord.



Roäc son of Carc was the Lord of Ravens during Thorin's time. Of old, the Dwarves of Erebor enjoyed a close relationship to these exceptionally intelligent birds - going so far as being able to communicate with them. Roäc was the bird that Thorin sent to the Iron Hills to contact his cousin, Dáin Ironfoot to come to their aid.

In Age of the Ring, Roäc is an airborne support hero. He's unable to attack, which means he has to level up in a different way. Using the same system that was used in The Dwarf Holds, the player can purchase Roäc's levels from his first ability:

Rank 1: Lord of Ravens
Allows Roäc to grow in strength. Becomes more expensive the higher Roäc ranks up.
At rank 1, he gives +5% movement speed, at rank 3 he additionally gives +10% experience gain, at rank 5 he gives +10% movement speed.

Roac 02


Rank 1: Subtle Ways
Roäc is useful, but vulnerable. In order to have a chance on a dangerous battlefield, he can conceal himself so long as he remains still.
Roäc becomes invisible while remaining still.

Rank 3: Unkindness of Ravens
Using mysterious-sounding calls and subtle magic, Roäc can slow down the enemy below him.
Enemy units below Roäc lose -7% movement speed.

Rank 3: Wisdom of Yore
Through years of gathering information and offering advice to the King Under the Mountain, the Ravens of Erebor have become skilled in lore and wisdom. Roäc, being the wisest of all, can offer his wisdom to provide experience to units.
Friendly units within the radius gain experience.

Rank 5: Messenger of the King
The Ravens of Erebor have always served as messengers between the various Dwarf kingdoms. As such, Roäc is able to summon a battalion of Iron Hills Warriors to aid the King in battle.
Summons one battalion of Iron Hills Warriors.

Hi, thank you for your amazing work !

I have a question regarding maps such as helms deep and minas tirith, is there a plan to rework them ?

Most of the fortress maps are currently almost unplayable, cannot build any buildings with new models or even if one gets to build anything a serious lack of command points does not allow player to recruit any units.

Over time we'll be replacing the free build system on fortress maps with a special build plot system specific to fortresses.

Got one questions
Are planned...or rather can we expect some new dragon-like units (some cold drakes maybe?)or even new dragon heroes in future?

Well, Dol Guldur sound terrifying!

I've always liked the 'bad' factions for the sheer variety of troops available, but with their cockney accents, maniacal laughter and silly insults (I'm look at you, Mordor!) they are just light-hearted enough to remain funny.

But constant damage to your own troops and undead units popping up everywhere is just downright evil! Gwanthaur sounds horrific! Great faction plan as always!

(Also, 'yay' to the news that Rohan potentially 3 releases away!)

I really like Dol Guldur faction plan but i think Necromancher could have an anti hero skill.

The next will be the Erebor or dwarf faction. Unfortunately, Rohan will be in the last update at least according to them.

Rohan will be after Rivendell most likely. So not last.
