Read the Manual to find out what to do!

TLD 3.22 is now Open Source! It's not a simple "grab and use for whatever", so read up on what it means exactly: Mbx.streetofeyes.com

Hey there! We've made a new page to streamline the process of finding and installing the latest everything, we know it was messy before, so this is our small gift to you. A succinctly small presentation page with the key facts, with just what you need: Click here!

Seriously, this up here is all you need, the rest is an old description we're leaving here.

And for the very end, it's worth repeating again TLD is primarily based on Tolkien's books, not on Peter Jackson's movies. So no need to ask about plate armour, uruk-hai crossbows, odd elven blades and other movie inventions.

We will be deleting/ignoring comments/questions that are flaming, rude or about LOTR movies stuff, Warband, bugreports and tech support. These have all been addressed in the manual and forums a million times before.

Back up all your saves in the 'Mount&Blade savegames' folder. It should be in your 'Documents'. Select the module (TLD), You're gonna see 00-08sg.sav files and at the bottom 'last_savegame_backup.sav'. Copy this file (as many times as you want) rename it and save it for when you get another corrupt game. The only solution that I know of.

This is the best mod of them all. AND I MEAN OF THEM ALL!!!
But i have some few questions:
1. When/how can i besige a castle like Minas Tirith?
2. Is it possible to wear the same clothes as a nazgul?
3. Why can't i enter Barad Dur? And will it be possible?
4. Now i know that its not possible to meet any of the characters from the fellow ship, but what about the ring?

And finally. Are there comming a update soon? :D

1. You can't. Lords do it. (read the manual, it explains it)
2. No. The Black Numenorean armors are somewhat similar.
3. Nope.
4. You actually CAN meet a few members of the Fellowship. Not the Ring though.

There is a 3.15 beta patch on our forums, a full final patch may come in a month, or later.

I was just wondering, is it possible to go inside Mordor? As in, to Barad Dur itself, I'm a Numenorean serving Sauron so I thought it would be possible but you just can't walk there.

Did you install the enhanced version of M&B? Go read the forums; just taking half an hour to read the forums helps a bunch, it did for me.

This mod is utterly incredible! Everywhere I look I see the four years it took to make this world. From the orcs to the elven armor. The detail is staggering, every scene lovingly crafted, almost every armor textured to perfection. +5 The mod is well balanced and the immersion is total and complete. It immediately reminded me of an Elder-Scrolls Lord of the Rings game. +5 Now sadly there are the bugs. Several quests are broken and some of the enviromental textures (elven bridges and Gondorian stone…

Great graphics side(excepts from some minor issues like terrible Isengard buildings), new shaders (windy flora!) bus scripting siede is comeplatly failed compared to that what dev team promised. Gameplay becomes booring too soon.
