This map is for 2-4 players in Multiplayer or 1 in Single.
The Map depicts Middle Earth from Fangorn Forest in the North to South Gondor in the South.
Players can play as Rohan, Gondor, Mordor or Isengard.
This scenario begins in the final scene of The Fellowship of the Ring. The Fellowship must defend against an attack from an Orc scouting party from Isengard.
Their objective is to get Frodo (or Sam in multiplayer) to Mount Doom and destroy the Ring whilst the forces of Evil try to kill the hobbits and take the One Ring.
To keep in the intense feeling of the LOTR story, castles, walls and bombard towers cannot be built, so be sure to defend those structures. Also Docks can only be built in certain places.
In addition, all explosion units have been removed bar the use of petards by Isengard. However, Trebuchets remain (otherwise the Black Gate would be unpenetrable).
I'm interested to hear what people think about this scenario so your comments would be welcome. Also, I played this with a friend against two AI and the battle on the Pelennor fields occured naturally with Rohan riding over the ridge and turning the tide of the battle.

Great map, fun to play although takes a long time to complete.
Played a multiplayer with 3 other people as Gondor, me and rohan slowly managed to wipe out the other two sauron based players.
A good lord of the rings map in general (cant be bothered to review)
