Edain Mod 4.5: The Sound of Arnor



Greetings, companions of Edain,


We have already preseneted you some of the music tracks in the past, which Forhir independently composed for Edain. Today, we would like to show the rest of the tracks, which will complete the own soundtrack of Arnor, such that Arnor will have a unique Backgroundmusic in the next version.

The Sound of Arnor

How does one imagine the sound of Arnor, the tragic northern kingdom? As you might imagine, it was quite difficult to create a fitting atmosphere for Arnor, the greater kingdom of the Dunedain, but at the same time the more tragic one. The glorious sound of trumpets, as Howard Shore used them for Gondor, weren't fitting enough for Arnor, in our opinion, for a kingdom standing on the edge. Therefore, the melancholic sounds are the one shaping Arnor, and are those, which tell more of past glory, than of current. At the same time the emotions of the people of Arnor should be represented: the losses by cold, pestilence and war; the fight to survive; omnipresent destruction, of what was formerly known as life. Though, the hope and the knowledge of a proud and great faction prevails, because there still is the will to fight, which can be heard in the battletracks.

Realm of the Dunedain

This is a track, which represents the atmosphere of Arnor. The once magnificent empire is melancholy lammented.


In Times of Cold and Hunger

In this track, the events of the Great Winter and the plague years are treated. From the cold, uncomfortable mood, however, rises a warm melody again and again that represents the hope.


Seven Stars and a High Crown

Also, this track shows the melancholy of Arnor once more. The drums of war are nonetheless omnipresent.


A Kingdom on Knife's Edge

As the name implies, Arnor's fate is on cutting edge. But not all is lost, yet.


The Men of the North

An improved version of an already featured track. Closed ranks of Arnorian soldiers advance forward.


The Last Stand

The final music of Arnor in its whole glory and greatness. A choir sings an old numenoriean poem(„Firiel’s Song“, from line 9).



If you want to know more about Forhir, you can find him on Soundcloud or on Youtube. There you can also find the other tracks he composed for Edain. We hope that you enjoyed the Sound of Arnor and are looking forward to your feedback.

Your Edain team

They are well made masterpieces that give you the feeling that this kingdom really existed in our history. Well chosen themes for the rise and downfall of Arnor. Personally I found very ear-pleased the "Men of the North" soundtrack.
Well done, it seems that you guys are on the way to give as with 4.5 entirely new Edain mod :))

The second pic really make me wish this game had a more advanced economy/world building system and not just a single resource with 1-2 resource buildings per faction ( talking about vanilla battle of middle earth )

Basicly a lotr stronghold would be perfect for me :/

I think I have the urge to write some music for the Edain as well.

Decent job Forhir. Though there are some things that somehow gave away the feeling, it's still a good one.
