The Wars of Arda is a (very) large expansion mod for the EA Games title "The Lord of the Rings: The Rise of the Witchking". We will first be heavily reworking the existing factions (adding Rohan and Harad and merging the Goblins into Isengard) and implementing a "minifaction" system where you begin a skirmish map with a "Core Faction" which contains a variety of units and heroes, and you purchase "Mini Factions" as the match prgresses, giving you access to new units and heroes.

In the meantime, the forums have been in dire need of restructuring. We've simply got too much room for too few members here and the layout is starting to feel a little bloated anyway.

I will be updating everything at around 0:00 GMT (7:00 EST) on Saturday, November 28. Hopefully we can look forward to some more refined mod information, better forum and site structure, and a cleaner setup overall.

In preparation for this, I've also been looking for ways to make the chatroom more accessible. I've registered a free mibbit client which will open up the chatroom for you when you click the link now. For those of you who already have clients, the link is still in the forum description. When you visit the forums, be sure to hop into the chatroom and talk with anyone else who may be online.
