Four amazing heroes stand trapped on perhaps the most magical island in middle earth. Ancient and new buildings alike grace the island, and controlling them controls the magic.
Command the blinding sun or the cold river waters. Inspire your soldiers through statues long lost.
Each hero begins near the most magical structures: capture them first!
As long as you control a building, you can revive your hero there for free. If you lose all men and structures, you lose.
The heroes are , as far as my testing has showed, very well balanced. All the heroes but Elrond have 6 powers, with Elrond controlling 5. This is because Elrond is extremely powerful.
Remember: Revive your hero as soon as he dies.. he is free! Summon troops often.. they are a huge help! Try to kill the most enemy as possible each time you use your magic.. the evenstar powers recharge much quicker than normal, but they still take precious time to recharge! Finally, each heroes last power on their palantir summons troops. Read the description of all the powers.. they may not be what you think!
This can be a 1v1v1v1, or a 2v2. The AI works by completely on its own only for boromir.. the other heroes you have to use powers near to get them to use their own. You summon troops near them, they will summon troops, etc.
Any comments are appreciated.
