In the Age of the Firstborn modification, we take the game back to the middle of the Third Age, and set "The Rise of the Witch-King" in a more suitable timeframe. The factions featured in this mod will also have to change due to this change in setting. Fighting for the forces of light in the first release, there will be Lindon, Lothlorien, Gondor, and Khazad-Dûm. The armies of the forces of darkness will be composed of Dol Guldur, Angmar, Umbar, and Wilderland. In the future, we aim to bring the faction of Arnor to you, too. The mod will introduce many new buildings, units, powers and heroes to the game, and turn it into a faster and more exciting experience than ever before!

Hey guys, I know it's been ages. I've been considering releasing the mod soon, it's really quite buggy, but I thought people would want the chance to play it, help by reporting bugs, comment, and, above all, enjoy it - so, please let me know if you're still interested, and I promise it'll be out quite soon.

Honestly for how well the 2 new factions are played this might be one of my favorite mods right now, hell of a good job man. With some more content i think this mod has the potential to be one of the best mods on here for bfm2 rotwk.
