From the depths a light shall rise, a star of hope for all the World. As a darkness gathers, it shall stand mighty as the blade, and be the shield that shelters as well as the spear that drives to the heart of evil. Yet, as this light will shine, darkness will slither like a tendril of hate, like a fatal disease, and the star will be its slave. Alas, this is the fate of all things, yet most beautiful cruelty is in the fall of Numenor. This mod will bring you back to the Second Age, before the War of the Ring, when the Dark Lord Sauron sought to corrupt and destroy the hearts of Men which lay bound to the fate of Westernesse and both scatter the loyal Dunedain as well as bending to his will those with weaker hearts or demeanour. With an all-new campaign, two new factions, a specialised purpose-built Living Map for use in the War of the Ring mode, plus new maps to battle over, this truly expansive mod will reinvigorate your Battle for Middle-earth experience like never before!

Well, apologies for the hiatus, but it'll get better soon.

My sincerest apologies for this overtly long hiatus, but it isn't going to end too soon. Due to complications in my personal life, Westernesse has been pushed aside for a while, but given that they aren't going to let up any time soon, I thought I'd give you a heads-up in the meantime.

After my extended hiatus ends, I will be looking for a few members to join this mod, since clearly it is quite unfair of me to keep you waiting this long. I don't know quite what I'll need yet, as I haven't touched Westernesse for a while, and don't quite know where the progress is at, just yet. If you wish to participate, you can message me on here or, more preferably, on my more active Revora account, and send me details of what you can do, and maybe some examples of your work.

Disclaimer: I alone reserve the right to accept or deny your entry into the team working on Westernesse, and it is by my direction alone that any actions should be taken therein. No work created for the Westernesse project may be taken for use elsewhere, by any members, and will remain exclusive to the Westernesse project. Any member of the modding community or any individual found to have misrepresented any produce of Westernesse as their own, or taken any assets for use in their own projects, will be dealt with appropriately and severely. I do not take kindly to fraud, having been afflicted by it before, and know that I will go to any lengths to rectify any wrongs that are made against me, or any of my partners or associates.


How is everything going? Are there any volunteers that have applied already?

I can't believe that of all the people who track this mod, no one has the time or the skill to lend aid. I'd apply myself if I had any modding skills. But in any case, if you have some job to do that requires no modding, I'd be happy to help if I can. I hope this mod keeps on going and wish you good luck!

Thank you so much for the support! Unfortunately, however, it's modders I need more than anything.
