It is with great excitement that we announce the completion of Tales of Middle Earth (ToME), the first ever fully playable and finished conversion based on the works of J.R.R Tolkien. This mod represents years of work from both Pulkit and Matt LiVecchi, as well as contributions from a host of others.

ToME's Features Include:

  • New Timespan: Play from the Fall of Belariand to the Great Years and the War of the Ring.
  • New Civilizations: Choose from one of 18 unique factions
    • Guide the wise and fair elves - Lindon, Rivendell, Mirkwood, Eregion, and Lothlorien
    • Fall under the sway of the Shadow with Angmar, Mordor, Isengard, Dol Guldur, or Minas Morgul.
    • Place your hope in the Men of the West with Arnor, Gondor, and fabled Numenor of old.
    • Ride with the Native Men of Rohan, Rhovanion, Harad, Umbar, or Rhun.
  • New Random Maps: Battle on new random maps based on real Middle Earth locations.
  • New Technologies: Research countless new technologies and decide the path of your race with faction choices. Will you ally with the Rohirrim as Isengard, or fall and become a Vassal of Mordor. The choices are yours.
  • Alliances: Forge alliances to supplement your armies with soldiers from other regions, or even call for the aid of dwarves and hobbits.
  • New Graphics: Enjoy the rich world of Middle Earth as presented by one of the largest graphical modification ever produced for Age of Kings. Over a hundred buildings have been designed, including wonders based on famous Middle Earth landmarks like Orthanc, Barad-dur, The Golden Hall, or Elrond's Homely House. Likewise, over 70 new unit graphics have been added, including over thirty all new units to appear for the very first time in ToME.
  • New Editor Opportunities: Create that LOTR campaign you always had in mind or play online against a friend! Designed to function in multiplayer, singleplayer, and scenario design.
