A downloadable mod

Welcome to Middle Earth!

This mod for Age of Empires: The Rise of Rome casts you into the War of the Ring.

Four new nations await your leadership.  Raise a great army as Isengard, build vast strongholds as Gondor, ride into battle as Rohan, or conquer the world as Mordor.

Save the world in an epic four-part campaign based on the War of the Ring.

Befriend hobbits, hire dwarves, meet wizards, and breed vast armies of orcs to aid in your conquests.

Enjoy a great blend of Age of Empires and Lord of the Rings music.

When you are ready for a real battle, challenge your friends to LAN games, and enjoy endless hours fighting across the Middle Earth random map type as you taunt each other with over twenty-five new taunts.

For more info, see the forum topic at Age of Empires Heaven.
