MGC08 - ~The Black Gate of Mordor~ LotR

Version: The Conquerors 1.0c
Style: Fixed Force
~The Back Gate of Mordor~

"Hold you're ground! Hold you're ground!" Sons of Gondor, of Rohan, my brothers! I see in your eyes, the same fear that would take the heart of me. A day may come, when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship. But it is not this day. An hour of woes, may shut it sealed when the age of men comes crashing down, but it is not this day; this day we fight! By all that you hold dear, on this good earth, I bid you STAND! Men on the West!!!!!

Aragon's rally before the battle for the Black Gate

This is a game that I made for the AoKH Mini Game Competition. Hosted by Epic Commander, or as he is now called on the forums, Viper IV.

This features a LotR game rarely done on AoE II. The Battle of the Black Gate. Though it not an overly awesome game, it will keep you on your toes, as your limited forces must hold out against a never ending army of orcs. It doesn't matter how many orcs you kill. What matters is how long your lines can hold, and that you are able to keep you troops organized as long as possible.

This game has some neat features however:

~Changing a unit from Archer to Swordsman
~Detailed ruin
~Good looking wasteland. (or is that an oximoron)
~Average looking fortress of Mordor
~Good instructions
~An "egde of your seat" game


Thanks Oliver for making Renaissance. Which is needed to play this game.

Thanks to Tanneur for taking care of the blacksmith.

Thanks Epic Commander for Hosting the competition.

Lastly, thank you for downloading. Please comment, or review.


Renaissance must be installed in order to play this game.


Thanks for downloading, and I hope you enjoy this game.

hailstorm65 Played it, good game.

Also one other thing; for every paragraph you type or game you make you do not have to have to put ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
for everything.

I'll decide if I want to add a bunch of ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ to a game. :p

Lol, thanks Basse. Lookin foward to hearing what you think of it. :)
Guthan Hey Dantares!

I played it, it's very challenging (I still didn't finished because my Legolas always die when you have to kill the remaining orcs...)

But I loved it :)
Nobody made a good Black Gate of Mordor scenario yet, I think I'll review it one day :P

LC_Pupitre map is sweet, not much more to say, except in the movie there were more men, so it might of been better to have more standing against mordor, however that would make it harder to defend and keep track of units

solid map altogether ^.^

Guthan: Glad you liked the game, and I'm glad you found it challenging. Legolas can be tricky, but you just need to know the correct areas to put him in. Personal advise: Don't put him in the front lines, even as a swordsman. I'd love for you to reiew it someday.

LC_Pupitre: Well, it's a mini game, so I figured I could put in fewer good guys. If it was a larger map I MIGHT of used more men. At any rate, more men would cause more lag. ;)

I just Google 'Hold you're ground! Hold you're ground! Black Gate' for Aragorn's speech and the top hit out of 269'000 is your submission, congratulations Dantares IV.

Wow! This is a great honor! Thanks for telling me about it. I never would of found it by myself. :D :D
MerryBrandybuck Wow, it really is the top one! Sic!

I have yet to download renaissance, but have a request:

If I don't beat you to it, will you make a scenario for Helm's Deep w/ Grond, Orc Super Petard and Explosion, other events, etc...

And also what about Minas Tirith?

Master of the Templar makes a good-looking template for Angmar, the hobbits could be villagers, and you could have a king as Denethor standing on a burning farm for a pyre...of course, you'd mod them all to have the names from the book...anyway, just an idea.
