As a veteran Total War player since the days of the first Shogun edition, I have always been interested in these games. After Medieval II Total War Kingdoms, I became less pleased with the series and especially with the engine they use. Thus I started playing mods for MTW2 like Stainless Steel, Broken Crescent and TATW. As a long time Tolkien fan from way before the first movie appeared, this was undoubtedly the game for me.
After a while I discovered the MOS submod for TATW and I liked it a lot. Of course this meant I had to visit the TWcenter on a regular basis as this was where all things MOS could be found. I since then became a Citizen there and got involved in modding myself. I am presently a member of the the Reunited Kingdom mod for MOS team (no longer active), The current MOS team and the team that is developing the DCI:Last Aliance mod. All of these are submods for TATW.
