THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING

For over 2 years, the Legends of the Third Age team have been working to re-create the first installment of Tolkien's classic Lord of the Rings trilogy in AoM. In this long-awaited campaign, the player follows the adventures of the nine members of the Fellowship in their quest to destroy the One Ring. The scenarios are made to the highest quality by some of the best designers in the community, and will lead the player from the sweeping rural hills of the Shire to the deepest depths of Moria to the wooded ruins of Amon Hen. Complex map design and amazing eye candy will keep gamers coming back simply to watch the brilliantly created cinematics. Even more fantastic is the completely original soundtrack created by a true genius at his craft. From Rivendell to Mordor, Legends of the Third Age: The Fellowship of the Ring brings Middle-Earth alive like never before.

Aside from the excellent scenarios, The Fellowship of the Ring boasts what may be the largest and most expansive modpack in Age of Mythology history. Each weapon is authentic, and gamers will feel the fires of the Balrog and hear the crack of Gimli's axe. Each face of each hero is authentic and detailed, as is every structure in the many exotic Middle-Earth locales. The mods were made by legends in the Age of Mythology community, and the quality does show.

The Fellowship of the Ring has features such as:

- The world of J.R.R tolkein created in AoM for the first time!
- 12 beautiful maps, pain-stakingly made to the finest quality by some of the best Age of Mythology mappers out there.
- The largest and most detailed modpack ever created in AoM!
- Original and never before seen game play.
- Extensive and professional sound track.

**This project is dedicated to the late, great Flipbizcut (1979-2005).**


===IMPORTANT===
When installing, you extract the extractor to your AOM INSTALL FOLDER,
not the folder you downloaded the file to.
Your AoM install folder is C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Age of Mythology\.
It is NOT My Documents\My Games\Age of Mythology.
If you extracted incorrectly,and re-extracted, you must run the
lta.exe inside the AoM folder, NOT the one created from the
mis-extraction.
Please do not pester us about something not working if you did not
extract to the AOM INSTALL FOLDER.
If you are getting an error about rockalldll.dll, you have not
extracted it properly.

cat This should read: Dragon Gaming Design Network and The Modders and Mappers of Liquid Fire Studios: Legends of the Third Age Team Proudly Present....

Reason: Eazy is a member of DGDN :P
Blue Dragon27 That may be but he's the only one. The rest of us are all solely LFS members and neither us nor the project have had anything much to do with DGDN at all.
cat Plus we were told that both teams would be credited......... sorry BlueDragon. but thats fair.

Shrink Here are some more criticisms from myself:
(note, i'm doing criticisms because you want them. I'm not doing a balanced pro/con review - this is a straight list)

Scenario 1:
(already mentioned most problems before, but:)
-The catapults died? Why is that?
-The black gate took too long to take down - which seemed pointless because there was no challenge. Just had to wait while doing nothing.
-Why would i ever want eleven infantry? the rollover help doesn't exactly tell me what they're good against, so I just used archers 100% - and it worked.
-I didn't realise I was fighting Sauron, nor did I notice that he died! I think he was probably too dark or too mixed up in a ton of other units, which leads on to:
-For a 'boss' of that caliber, a more interesting boss fight would have been funner than selecting 4 armies and right clicking.
-The playable area of the map was a thin straight line, which is boring.
After scenario 1:
-I don't like how the cinematics appear to be attempting to replicate the films, rather than adapt. I'm not keen on it because it can make for some boring cinematics, or for some very confusing things had you not seen the film or read the book.
-There were green glowing arrows. I could not believe it. Green glowing arrows? Green. Glowing. Arrows? Ugh. They ruined all immersion and where utterly pointless.
-Stamina felt like a gimmick. I never had to look at my food count or even explore for any apple trees. just every so often it said I got some apples, and because of this it seemed pointless. Such a gimmick would have been a way to encourage exploration, but you didn't go that way.
-On the info screen of Heroes (when you right click the portrait) it should have told me what the special attack of each hero was, because I had no idea. This sort of thing is also good to have in the rollover help. Or in the scenario hints/spotlight if you don't want to mod it.

That's all I've got right now. There were good things in the download as well - a lot of good things, but as I mentioned, this is a critique, which you seemed interested in hearing.
(and of course, they're all my opinions blah blah disclaimer etc etc)

Tiber Septim So what you're saying, Dnas, is that I can't just click my AoM desktop icon? Ah, i'll reinstall AoM now and check if it works. :)

Seriously, I don't want to star tan argument or anything, but DGDN did nothing to help the creation of this project, so I think the team are being very generous to let DGDN have it on their site just because of me.

Consider yourself lucky you have what you have.
Dnas DGDN situation: Aip... I have no idea what's going on and I'm going to stay out of this one...

You run the extractor and give it the right folder.
To run, using the normal AoM icon will run plain AoM, and running C:\\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Age of Mythology\lta.exe (I'd recommend making a shortcut to this) will run the modpack.
Reinfire @Rider

I am talking about the stamina system. By the time I reach those statues in the forest, my stamina is down to 20 while I walked at top speed and took all the apple trees along the way. And during that test with the dryad my stamina keeps on draining >_<

How the hell are you supposed to complete this scenario like this?
RiderOfEternity --
There are other problems. For example, in Scenario 1, you are given far too many units (like 6 armies' full?) and the scenario is not challenging. I just had to direct the units forward (in a straight line! not great map design there) - no micro or anything was involved.
--
Heh we actually changed it just before the release because it was too challenging. In fact I had to keep doing hit and run tactics in order to defeat the armies.. only then to be overun by Sauron's army.

@Rein: I'm not sure since I didn't make the scenario. GoI did, ask him :)

And yeah, keep the comments coming, it'll help us in TTT.

Btw Shrink couldn't you look at the objectives to find out what to do?

Guardian Of Isis -------------------
On the info screen of Heroes (when you right click the portrait) it should have told me what the special attack of each hero was, because I had no idea. This sort of thing is also good to have in the rollover help. Or in the scenario hints/spotlight if you don't want to mod it.
-------------------

Hmmm, will do! Thanks for all your tips, everyone. I'm working on the campaign right now!
