Probably the most popular mod for the original Mount & Blade v1.011 (not Warband)
TLD is without a doubt one of the best mods aot there, and I'd say the best for Mount&Blade.
It's not just the art, the gorgeous scenery, the inmersive new quests and the new gameplay features (and that alone would be enough to stand out), it's the incredible ammount of detail put in every bit of the world, in every line of dialogue. The kind of things that show the developer's deep love and knowledge of Tokien's work. And I am a victim of the same love, so I can't be impartial at all. TLD is not only an amazing mod that is incredibly fun to play, it's also a tribute that appeals to the memories of the time when I was reading LOTR for the first time and couldn't stop reading until late night.
That's why I give it a 10/10
It's a perfect mod, the developers have made it well.
I only wish it was a standalone game instead of a Mount & Blade mod. Because... well, Mount & Blade isn't really a realistic game, especially the way the characters run/walk sucks... But that's just M&B not TLD. (:
It would be amazing if someone could make an Elder Scrolls version of TLD. :x
