The War for Middle Earth

Author File Description
Meat Puppet
File Details
Needs T&P?: Yes
SCENARIO: First of all, I hope if you download this scenario and play it, you will come back and rate it. Scenario designers don't make money, we do it 50% for the fun and 50% for the glory. Feedback keeps us in business. Nuff said ...

Second note: This scenario uses scripting that may not work on your computer. Should work perfectly on most computers, though ...

Third note: There is not much in the way of game instructions in the scenario itself, or as a .txt file in the scenario (I forgot). So consider this page your game instructions.

Fourth: This scenario was designed using RON Thrones & Patriots scenario editor with custom scripting and one custom sound, an intro sound (drums.wav).

SITUATION: Five races rule Middle Earth. NO attempt was made to make this Middle Earth like Tolkien's Middle Earth. It's just a map that has some races from Middle Earth. These races are:

Elves: The Elvish player can build scouts and archers only. Every so often, he will get a group of archers and cannon at his capital, otherwise he has to build them. The Elves have a limited population cap (when controlled by a human player, due to their heavy advantages). Their kingdom is heavily wooded. These archers can move very fast but are otherwise weak. The Elves also do not suffer attrition.

Giants: The Giants can build scouts, cannon, supply wagons and Landsknechts, which are the Giants themselves. These units have been resized to look like, well, giants. The Giants are very powerful and strong units but are very slow. They occupy a part of the mountain rich in mountains. Other Giants units, like citizens, are sized normally, as these are humans enslaved by the Giants.

Dwarves: The dwarves can build swordsmen, scouts, cannon and supply wagons. They are resized to look like Dwarves. Other Dwarvish units are sized normally as these are humans enslaved by the Dwarves.

Orcs: The Orcs can build cannon, Heavy Fire Lances, scouts and supply wagons. They start with the Temple of Tikal wonder, which is the "Dark Tower." Every so often a group of Royal Scutari and Mahouts (war elephants) will appear. All of these are sized a little bigger than humans but not as big as Giants. They also move a little faster than humans but slower than Elves. The Orcs are very formidable player.

Horse Lords: This is the human player. The Horse Lords can build scouts, infantry (Praetorians) and two types of cavalry.

SPECIAL CONDITIONS:

* You have a choice of three races to play: You can be 1) the Horse Lords, 2) the Giants, or 3) the Elves. This allows you to play the same scenario at least three times and get a totally different game experience.

* You cannot build castles/forts and some wonders. Other wonders are given customized costs (more expensive than usual).

* The resources are renamed: metal = iron, food = grain, wealth = gold, just for fun.

* Finally, and this is important: Note that each player starts with a certain number of castles. If a castle is reduced below 50% of its hit points, the castle will surrender and be attributed through treaty to a random player. This really mixes up the action. Sometimes another player may take another's castle, and it's given to you by treaty. This can only happen once--if the castle is attacked again after it is given to another player, it can be destroyed.

Otherwise, this is a straight-up diplomatic scenario with conquest victory conditions.

THANKS FOR PLAYING: I hope you have fun playing this scenario! If you like it, please come back and rate it. If you don't like it, tell me how to improve it. - MP
