I am in fact a Hobbit (in all but size). I like gardens, trees and unmechanized farmlands; I smoke a pipe, and like good plain food (unrefrigerated), but detest French cooking; I like, and even dare to wear in these dull days, ornamental waistcoats. I am fond of mushrooms (out of a field); have a very simple sense of humour (which even my appreciative critics find tiresome); I go to bed late and get up late.

Sorry so late here [In reply to] Can't Post

As a long time TW player (Medieval II Kingdoms is still my favourite) Id love to see something like this.

med 2 [In reply to] Can't Post

Med 2 was my favorite as well. Have you ever played the third age mod for med 2? It is still the most popular TW mod ever made.

Never played [In reply to] Can't Post

I remember paying attention as it was being developed, looking at screenshots, reading forum posts, etc. But at the time I was leery of mods and user created content in general, probably owing to experiences around file sharing on Halo 3 and hacked lobbies in Modern Warfare (ancient history I know). I could see that a lot of effort went into the mod, but admiring it from afar seemed the safest thing, to me, at the time. Besides, when I was feeling like an immersive LOTR gaming experience, I was more than satisfied with Battle for Middle Earth and its iterations; and apart from the sometimes frustrating AI, Med 2 satisfied a specific longing just as it was.

Edit to add: but as a longtime fan of the series, I actually keep an old windows 98 system running just to play Medieval 1 and the original Shogun titles!

Play it [In reply to] Can't Post

I highly recommend playing it. Of course, it's not 100% LOTR TW but it comes very close. It was a lot of fun. I played multiple hotseat campaigns aginst my kids, great fun.

But perhaps more than third age I would recommend the board game War of the Ring by areas games. Nothing immerses you more into Tolkien's world than War of the Ring. It is a lore acurate grand stretegy game

There is also an online comunity on steam that plays TT simulator. They ever remade the pieces to look like the movies. I havent played in ahile but it was great to play others across the world, even if they whipped up on me.
