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.

How do I cross the river? I get to the Old Ford by Beournings(sorry about the spelling) Village and I can't cross, and I don't see anywhere else to cross.

I've been enyoing this Mod for quite a while now, but unfortunately it always crashes at day 61 11am on map. I tried everything you guys posted in the Forums (changing amount of armies on map saving in town etc.) and google everywhere, but couldnt find a solution, is it a commun bug?

Click on the link i gave to you, choose between the instructions/patches for regular M&B OR M&B: Warband, download the patches according to your game (assuming you have warband then select the warband's option), patch the mod, and then start a new game.

Highest Rated (25 agree) 9/10

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.

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.
