Fifth Bio for the new or updated factions of Divide and Conquer.

Baruk Khazâd!


Welcome to Third Age Total War: Divide and Conquer submod! As the current writer on the DaC Council, I am proud to present you with some long anticipated information on the new factions of DaC and the major changes to the vanilla factions. This bio is of the expedition to Khazad-dûm lead by Lord Balin. All campaigns start in the Third Age 2980, 39 years before the events of The War of the Ring.

Dwarves of Khazad-dûm:
Faction Leader: Highlord Balin
Faction Capital: Khazad-dûm
Best Infantry Unit: Khazad-dûm Reclaimers
Best Archer Unit: Iron Crossbowmen

So it begins...

The Reclaimers prepare to march onward to the bitter end.


Gameplay Bio: Setting out from Erebor in 2980, spirits could not be higher among the loyal followers of Highlord Balin, with the successful re-population of Erebor and power and wealth returning to the lonely Mountain, the time could not be more right to reclaim the ancient mansions of Durin. All that lies in their path is the twisted horror of Mirkwood Forest, the eternal hatred of their race from the Goblins and the threat of Shadow and Flame.

Marching to Dale with some of the hardiest and most determined Dwarves in Middle-earth, Balin must decide to either attempt the shorter path straight through the dark, twisted forest or the longer, potentially safer, route through the uppers vales of the Anduin. Both paths will inevitably filled with danger but they may also bring reward. Once a path is chosen and the troops recruited, the expedition can begin!

Should Balin find himself staring in the lake of Azanulbizar he will have made the journey in one piece but the monolithic challenge of cleansing the deep halls still rests before him. The ever present threat of Durin's Bane now becomes fully released as the beast rises to destroy the hated Dwarves. Now the greatest challenge of Balin's life must be overcome, he must either rid Moria of Durin's Bane or risk the total failure of his expedition. If the mighty beast can be silenced then perhaps a new found peace and prosperity can reign from the three peaks of the lower Misty Mountains.

An army of Dwarves lead by Balin's iconic guard.
Dwarves hold the line while axethrowers rain vicious hell down on newcomers.

Most possibly you dont download something or some not work properly. I couldnt take root by realms of Thranduil, i was forced to take longer route, but later all work properly, i reclaim Moria, all Misty Mountains and even took Grey Mountains, which should belong to Erebors Dwarfs, but were conquered by humans from Anduin. Now i made decision to attack a Mordor and reclaim all Mountains of this Region . I hold a Isengard and now fight for Minas Morgul with Gondor, which later will earn this city when i conquer all Mordor.

Does it crash in battle or when the scroll appears? If in battle, auto resolve it!
