Probably the most popular mod for the original Mount & Blade v1.011 - now also for Warband!
What can I say? This mod is awesome. besides the fact they are having troubles with invasions and some crashes, needless to say the team that worked on this mod have shown us that they mean business! good job guys, looking froward to updates and any new versions you have to offer.
The fantastic screenshots were enough to make me redownload and reinstall Mount&Blade after, what, 3 years? It's truly fantastic, though because it uses the old M+B engine, the combat isn't very good (a great sub-mod exists for Warband combat animations, though it has some animation bugs and doesn't fix the terrible sword combat while mounted).
I'd give this mod a 10, but twice now i've reached a point in my campaign where the game will just crash at a certain point. The game is kind enough to make backup saves, but using those would still result in a crash once reaching a certain point in time in the game.
The new weapons and armour look fantastic, the new enemies look great and have a nice selection of sounds to go with them (grunts and...stuff), and the great new system of earning rank (and therefore rewards) with different factions is great fun, if a little grind-like and monotonous.
It's definitely worth downloading.

Best mod ever made on warband! It's full of good idea, all work, texture, scene are perfectly made with passion. The feeling is very close to the feeling i have when i read LOTR. And it's one of the rare mod that take the J.R.R Tolkien description and not the Perter Jackson esthetic (who is not bad at all but it's good to have something different and beautifull)
Great mod! The detail on the armor is astonishing,the mod itself is awesome,altough some minor bugs and other things like the "main" characters looking exactly like any other soldier. (Glorfindel should have his silver armor!!) other than that the mod is perfect.highly recommend it
The mod is amazing, exactly what a lord of the rings fan would want but the mod has various bugs-
-battles over about 50 units can only be played on dx7.
-the dunland camp glitches out after becoming lvl 8.
-sometimes supply/prisoner trains wont spawn(mordor).
the mod has also a lack of maintenance from my point of view
