I have been a huge fan of lord of the rings-themed mods since I tried the Third Age Total War for medieval total war 2: kingdoms expansion, and the new The Last Days mod looks absalutely stunning. I played the release for the older build of mount and blade, and there is nothing more fun than building your army of young gondorian warriors, and training them in the field of battle against hundreds of orcs. The only bad thing about this release was the lack of ragdoll physics/fully constructed mega-cities (helms-deep, Minis tirith). This upcoming release, however, is a culmination of five years of work, and although I have only just became aware of this mod six months ago, I am extremely excited to see It's release. I will write about how awesome it is when It launches, october 31st. If you have M&B and like lord of the rings, try it. From my hands-on time with the game, i can honestly say it was better than any commercial lord of the rings game, and that was just the alpha version.
