Post news RSS Grand Campaign: War for Rohan

First, what is is a Grand Campaign? The Grand Campaigns are series of challenges based around events from the Lord of the Rings. Each campaign is split up into multiple challenges which (loosely) retell the happenings of the central event. These challenges will hopefully force you to play creatively in order to respect the restrictions that come with each. There are no complicated rules, all you have to do is make sure you respect the restrictions listed in each challenge. These will often vary from restricting the player to certain factions, certain units or limit what spellbook powers you can use. You are not obliged to complete all the missions or play them in any specific order, they are simply provided that way for your convenience. Grand Campaigns are initially hosted on the unofficial Edain Discord server but I'll also be slowly releasing them onto here for a wider audience. On the discord server, there are currently two finished campaigns and a third one currently being released.

The War for Rohan

This Grand Campaign contains five missions centered around the various battles fought in Rohan during its war with Isengard.
