The Battles of Gondor aim is to try to bring back the fun that bfme1 made. This mod is for Rise of the Witch King.

Rohan - Plenty of cavalry units, with some infantry support and strong heros to lead them.
Minas Tirith - A well balenced side, with heavily armoured infantry.
Souther Fiefdoms - A huge seletion of infantry with limited but strong cavalry.
Elves - Plenty of archer units with some skilled swordsmen.
Mordor - Plenty of orc and troll units, numbers is their strength.
Isengard - Orcs and wild men are now isengards early game units, with plenty of uruks for late gameplay.
Evil Men - Plenty of stealth and assasins make up part of their army. the rest is taken up by their huge infantry devisions.

As this is a war in the south mod, Dwarves, Goblins and Angmar have been replaced. So you could call this a total conversion.
Every faction has plenty of new units and heros and reskins. i have given everything a "makeover".

New Maps
East Emnet
Osgiliath (new)
Dol Amroth
Cirith Ungol
Lothlorien (new)
Minas Tirith (new)
and more!

Other changes
New navel units
Fully working War of the Ring Mode
Create a Hero for all the new factions
Full ai for all the factions
New War in the South Campaign
new spellbooks
and more!

I could probely go on for a while about the features of this mod, but most of them are listed at my site for the mod. Screen shots can be found on the site, under the faction pages. There are also hundreads of released screen shots, which can be found in the mods forums under updates.

I may add more info later and ill kepp this updated.

If you have questions, comments or whatever, your best to post them at the forums.

There is an early beta out for bfme2, it only includes Evil men and Isengard, but they both have ai, so it gives a taster of what to expect.

i downloaded the mod, and installed, but when i startup the normal version of ROTWK appears. Help>?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

Does anyone know where I can find info about the launching process?. The game is downloaded and installed in the normal Desura window, and is described as ''ready'' below the BFME 2 Witch King, which is listed as installed. This is all I have done, then I right-click on Battles of Gondor and press launch. What happens then is that the normal version of BFME 2 Witch King is launched, without the mod... How to get the mod to work? I will thankful for any help.

Thanks to Tom for creating the mod, I've visited the website, it looks fabulous!
