The Sundering: Rise of the Witch King Soundtrack


The Sundering: Rise of the Witch King is a mod for Medieval 2: Kingdoms and based around the fantasy world of Games Workshop's Warhammer universe during the civil war between the Elves.

The mod's campaign opens with the Death of Bel Shanaar in -2751 IC. It features completely new units never before seen in a Medieval 2: Kingdoms mod, includen noble Griffon Riders, vile Hydras, and even the all powerful Dragon Princes of Caledor. Alongside these mystical creatures will be the Elves themselves, from the lowliest Elven Spear unit to the powerful Phoenix Guard, and from deranged Cultist to the Knights of Anlec.

Also included is a new strategic map of Ulthuan, the homeland of the Elves, including new models for Elven cities, generals, and monuments (such the Shrine of Asuryan). The campaign is an unscripted and epic journey through almost fifty years of the war that shattered the Elves forever, featuring new custom messages to fully immerse the player in the lore and culture of the Elves. Will you lead Nagarythe forward in it's bid to conquer Ulthuan and install Malekith as the new Phoenix King? Or will you lead one of the other nine Elven Kingdoms in their battle to protect their homelands? Or perhaps you will follow neither path and forge a new destiny for your people! The kingdom is yours to command, whether it be rich maritime Eataine or the martial powess of Caledor and its dragons. And while you forge a new empire for your people, you must be wary of the all corrupting influence of the Cults of Pleasure and Excess who would seek to undermine your position, though perhaps the Cults could be used to your own advantage if you play your cards right!

This is the most pivotal moment in Elven History, and one of the most destructive wars that the Warhammer universe has ever witnessed. You are now part of that history! Will you change that history for better or worse? That is for you to decide...

I was thinking of making a mod similar to this one.You could expect to see it on moddb for Christmas!
And it's dedicated to my friends MorguLord,BagaturKhan and RiderOfRohan. :))

The mod will be called "Storm Of Chaos"

It's a Total Conversion for the Kingdoms,replacing all the Factions with:
The Empire(NO THERE WON'T BE DUCHIES AND COUNTYS,Only Kislev is alone)
Kislev
Chaos Forces
High-Elves
Dark-Elves
Greenskins
Dwarfs
Sylvania

And that's it.

I'll sometimes use art from MMORPG game called "Warhammer Online:Age Of Reckoning" to speed up the work and save time.

Expect to see Warhammer:Total War designs and concepts.


FOR THE EMPIRE!!

for sigma! I like it :)
do you know if chaos will include chaos dwarves?
and can you hint about how much area will be covered.
and is it possible to expand later, I mean, maybe there is a chance that a mod like this can compete with the new total war warhammer title.

The coding is in absolute shambles, and the campaign switcher seems like an impossible task thanks to the hardcoded limits of Medieval 2. Therefore 0.7 can't be released as it stands. Also a lot of the models shown aren't implemented at all again due to the limits of the engine. There is a petition going around to remove those hardcoded limits, so maybe if that petition get's approved the work can continue with a new team, provided that Twmadman and Kolwen give their permission as they are (or were) the leaders of the team.

I left a comment asking the modders of rage of the dark gods to look at your mod. and maybe if you guys could collaborate and share your resources make an even better mod that is stable. and a bigger part of the warhammer world in one. the sunderings strength was in part that it was stable, the other rage of the dark gods, well, is slightly chaotic lets say on that front.
your models and textures also have a better look to it often, especially certain details;)
