The Silmarillion - is it difficult to read?


An interesting fan-made trailer about the Silmarillion:



Band: Summoning
Genre: Athmospheric Black Metal
Country: Austria
Setting: Middle Earth, the Lord of the Rings

Don't get confused by the Genre, many of their tunes don't seem to belong at all in this genre, for example the following:

Summoning - Bauglir/Oathbound

Morgoth/Melkor talking to the mighty but imprisoned Húrin, announcing his vengeance and the death of the beloved ones of Húrin.


Mount & Blade lotr mod - The Last Days (of The Third Age of Middle Earth) is another amazing mod where the makers have been working in their spare time, creating an incredible environment that is just breathtaking. The Last Days is being added to the game Mount & Blade Warbands that you need to install before.

Third Age Total War - best game ever


Third Age Total War is the best Lord of the Rings-computer game mod
out there - and according to me, the best Computer Strategy Game ever made. But stop; it is not a game, just a fan-made mod that is being added to Medieval 2 Total War Kingdoms. However this mod was created with so much love and dedication that many people buy Medieval 2 Total War just in order to be able to play Third Age Total War.

Best fan-made film about Elladan, Elrohir and Eärendil


This video is very well done, the best fan-made Lord of the Rings film I've seen up to now. It feels very much that the guys who created it spend a lot of time on it and loved every second.

It is about the sons of Elrond, Elladan and Elrohir and their grandfather, Eärendil. They are all Half-elven.

Your favorite unit in Third Age Total War?


Which is your favorite unit in Third Age Total War?

Now that is really a hot discussion topic for those
who sold their souls to Third Age Total War.

I love to combat Isengard. The Uruk-hai units are just wonderful,
I don´t know how many times that I have been already fighting Isengard, both as Eriador, High Elves and Gondor.

Own units:
