EvilSepheroth's campaign is based on The Lord of the Rings:The Two Towers, a high fantasy novel by J.R.R. Tolkien. In this book, the members of the broken Fellowship of the Ring make their ways through Middle-earth, battling the hordes of the evil Sauron and Saruman.

Playability: 2
This was not one of the best LotR scenarios available in the Blacksmith (although there are quite a few). It does not truly re-enact LotR for me, and it will not for most other people, too. One thing that bugged me was that Saruman's soldiers never attacked Helm's Deep. However, I quite liked playing it in a schadenfreude kind of way; watching a Furious beat up an entire army is immensely stress-relieving. There is an Attila the Hun named: Barad-Dur, The Dark Tower.

Balance: 2
Heroes have 100 attack and 2000 life, and a Furious the Monkey Boy with 2500 life just does not make sense. Yes, I realize you wanted to use a mod, but still. When attacking Isengard, I just put the Ents (Elephants with 5600 HP, led by Treebeard who has 220 attack) in there and set them to Aggressive stance, then waited. It worked!

Creativity: 3
Some creativity is shown by having several groups of heroes and soldiers to control: Frodo and Sam; Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli; and Gandalf and Eomer, for example.

Map Design: 3
This map was very obviously based on a random map, which meant that sheep standing around made the map look not like LotR. The map's geography is nonsensical; Helm's Deep guards a pass to Mordor?

Story/Instructions: 4
This is LotR, which is a great story in itself and practically made to be adapted into AoK, but EvilSepheroth did not adapt the story especially well. The instructions, at least, are clear, telling you exactly what to do with each group of people.

Additional Comments: A good try, EvilSepheroth, but you've got a long way to go before you become one of the true design masters. Keep working, I actually quite like your stuff!
