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.

Iv been playing the mod for a few hours, but I didnt see any magic. Is there magic in this mod?

Only the gods and there servants wielded magic, and the races of the 1st to 2nd age could make magical items and effect the elements weather and such. In the the 3rd age only Aniur had any real magic and there was only four of them left in middle earth.

Im not very into LOTR (Im getting into it, but so far iv only seen the 2nd movie. I plan on reading the books soon). But I thought there was magic in LOTR (and I thought it would be cool to be an elf wizard lighting orcs on fire).

Yeah, it's a shame. The mod also lacks tossable dwarves and shield-surfing elves.

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.

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.
