A LOTR based scenario. It tells the tale of the united forces of men and elves fighting Morgoth, The Black Enemy, in Forodwaith(the northern realms of Middle Earth).
This is my first scenario and is has no triggers. It's just for me to test my mapping-skills so please leave some comments. If anyone is making a LOTR capaign he/she can use this map in it. CREDIT ME IF YOU DO
For a first time try this is not a bad scenario, but it is definetly not up to par with most other work being submitted to the blacksmith. The map design is okay, but lacks any eye-candy. Slower computer users should be warned that this scenario has a lot of units. No triggers either so don't expect much.
Just a quick note to the author if you're reading this: the story of the Wars Against Morgoth is told in JRR Tolkien's novel "The Silmarillion". You had the battle taking place in Forodwaith correct? Morgoth never built a fotress there, he made his stronghold in Angband, north of the ancient realm of Beleriand. If you need help doing some research on this topic I can help you out a bit, just post here and I'll get back to you.

Thanks for the comments, Spartos. I am currentley trying to find the book "The Silmarillion in a library though haven't got any luck so far. This scenario is more like LOTR inspired and is based only on my imagination rather than on Tolkien s works.
One more thing though. When creating this scenario I used a mod which changes the dirt 3 terrain into black mud. I used it when creating everything on the other side of the mountains so it had a Mordor-like effect.
I don't know wich mod it is but it can be found somewhere on AoKH. Without it this scenario looks quite ugly

Maybe you should upload that texture then if it makes the scenario look so much better. I would be interested in playing it again just to see what it looks like. About The Silmarillion stuff, here are a few good sites to get you started and feel free to ask me any questions my e-mail is "firstname.lastname@example.org"
