"Elen síla lúmenn’ omentielvo"


Wars of the Firstborn is a modification based on the discontinued Ridder Clan Mod for The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-Earth II and for The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-Earth II - The Rise of the Witch-King, which focuses on bringing to life as much of the Elven world from Tolkien’s epic as possible.

Hello followers,

Mod of the year is upon us and Wars of The Firstborn almost gets one year old. Time to review what has been done and since I want to tell you so much and can't type fast enough, I decided this year to delight you with my voice and elves!

You can watch/listen the video below which showcases the current state of the Mirkwood factions and give many insights in what is and what is to come. To some, it might not seem like much but what we achieved this year cannot possible be expressed in words and we are committed to see this finished. Just keep in mind a lot of backstage work went into this and also, the mod aims for higher standards, which in turn meant redesigning many things. More explained in the video.


For all of those that are still here after all these years, Thank you!

Looks cool so far, keep up the good work. Would be cool if instead of defensive plots on the base, if you could build ents or archers and put them in the base too shoot.

Well done, the way mirkwood builds up instead of side to side is very cool.

They will sparely receive new content, however the elven factions will have the main focus. The dwarves might get more stuff but no promises.
