16 Factions are being made for Return of Shadow as of the current version 10 have been released. Each faction is unique and designed to make best use of the faction's culture while offering unique game play mechanics and ideas.
Over 100 new maps are in Return of Shadow covering just about every corner of Middle-Earth. From the arid lands of Rhun to the snow capped peaks of Caradhras of the Misty Mountains.
Battles will be bigger than ever before with expanded Battalion sizes, higher starting Command Point Limit and the new Expanding CPL system.
New heroes join the fray for every faction bringing new strategic options to table with all kinds of unique abilities.
Outposts have been improved upon with Outposts now with 3 Defence plots and counting toward the Expanding CPL system and for most factions these are the sole source of Siege Weapons making controlling Outposts vital in a siege battle. The new Watchtower plots allow you to build a Watchtower that will provide vision over an area and defend key points as well as providing a Territory bonus to External economy buildings in the area.
You'll have access to more spells than ever with the Spell Store expanding from 8 to 12 spells and with rebalanced spell costs and new types of spells.
Because of the huge amount of changes in the mod the game is completely rebalanced. With damage, costs and command points adjusted all over.
Start with Final Beta Part1 then Part 2 and finally Riddermark Edition. Requires Patch 1.03 installed (will work with 1.06 as well).
Download and install the following parts in that order.
As you may have noticed I've been pretty quiet for a while now, I've been pretty busy with life stuff for the last 6 months and it limits my modding time. I've been working on the mod on a more part time basis these last 6 months so work is still continuing just not at my usual fast pace.
Southron Edition is still planned for release and hopefully in the near future, most of the Harad faction is ready and work has for now shifted to working some of the other factions finishing up some stuff there, like the last 2 weeks I've been focused Erebor trying finish up their Expansion system and its related heroes.
