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.

From the manual:
"for practical reasons of war intensity, only the [east] part of the Misty Mountains is covered by the map"

Well, I've been loving the mod. I am well aware that it is stated to post bugs on your forums however i still have yet to receive an invite from the Merlkir. Just had a question to the public if anyone else has had a problem with the Dalish quest " The lost spears of King Bladthorin " ( i believe i spelled it all correctly ). It's a quest given by King Brand, to find spears in the dwarven mountains. Sadly trying to use the door in the first area results in nothing. A dead end sadly. The door is called "A door to some place" if i remember correctly. Just wondering if anyone else has experienced.

Quest is incomplete.

From Swyter (http://forums.taleworlds.com/index.php?topic=199243.4515):

"No, it is partially done. Scenes are completed, dialogs are almost there, but scripting is just started.

Merlkir has complete design documents for those with coding experience wanting to help."

Hi guys, figured i'd get a faster response from the community, tried doing the mod for warband, followed the video manual to the letter, even that little banner they have provided. I get the mod installed as stated. The intro video will play, however after that i get a RGL warning stating : hlsl_data_handles[ varying number based on how many times ive hit enter ] is not valid. I have tried uninstalling and redoing the whole lot of it twice. No luck.

Can you delete the TLD folder on your Warband directory and check the instructions here: Tldbot.bitbucket.org

Let us know what happens

I redid everything, and it seems to load up now. I believe ( not sure on this ) that the night patch dl was corrupted. When i was dling it yesterday it kept saying checking. Now it doesn't. Either way, cheers mate.

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. 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…

Lowest Rated (7 agree) 5/10

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.
