The War of the Ring

Author File Description
File Details
Number of Scenarios: 9
Difficulty: Mod-Hard
I´m proud to present my first custom campain for AOE:DE, The War of the Ring

The campaign consists of nine scenarios set in J.R.R Tolkien´s Middle-earth. In these scenarios, we follow the life and career of Aefundil, a captain of Gondor, throughout the war of the ring. The aim of the campaign is to tell a compelling story within Tolkien´s epic from the viewpoint of a minor (fictional) character. The story of Aefundil will take you from the lush forests of Ithilien and the harsh deserts of Haradwaith to the beautiful coasts of Lebennin and the splendour of Minas Tirith.

The scenarios are of differing levels of difficulty. Some may focus on narrative and exploration and can be completed on a first try, whilst others will be extremely challanging and require trial and error to complete. None the less, if you feel that one particular scenario is too hard to beat, or simply laughably easy, feel free to tell me so - and i might take a second look.

I welcome all critique of this campaign, and will continue to do so in all future scenarios and campaigns - as long as it is constructive. So don´t hesitate to point something out that might need fixing or rebalancing. I would love to hear what you think regardless if it´s positive or negative.

Some planned changes:

Scen 1 - An Ill omen: Nerfing player two slightly. Less resources or starting villagers. Not yet decided. This is to prevent the speed of which the enemy army builds up to an undefeatable extent.

Scen 6 - A new war: Removing/ moving some Osgiliath buildings that essentially made invisible walls were there shouldn´t have been any. This is to make pathfinding easier.

Scen 7 - The siege of Cair Andros: Nerfing player two slightly. Removing some of player 2´s initial units. At least one stone thrower and probable a couple of hoplites. This is to prevent the enemy from destroying all your military buildings before you´re given a chance to respond.

joshminer I found it too hard for my liking. Its a pain to find all the gaia units without dying, and when i finally found the priests and barracks/stable. The priest didn't do anything but stand there. and I had enough money to buy 1 camel guy. Hell just killing on trade shop I lost all my adds and my hero was down to 3/4 health let alone trying to destroy like 4 or 5 more.
Too much trial and error.

Maybe I suck but that's my 2cents ;-)
