Probably the most popular mod for the original Mount & Blade v1.011 - now also for Warband!
I had a lot of trouble getting it to work only to see a messy and small map and terrible sky box. The orcs and uruks are poorly modeled and look like small trolls with back problems. The named characters look nothing like the movie, one example is Gandalf and Saruman having brown hair and beards. it was impossible to feel immersed with these problems and there's also the fact that i cant recruit a single soldier who isn't a named character, all it ever says is that they are better off where they are. the mod is far too strict and makes me feel like my character isn't going to get anything done. who knows, maybe i just didn't have the patience to wade through a bunch of boring stuff only to not be able to do anything. I am sure others are thoroughly enjoying this mod, but it is simply not for me.
