Silmarillion: Total War is a total conversion of Rome: Total War Alexander expansion, sets in the First Age of Beleriand, allowing the player to immerse into the War of the Silmarils. Play as one of the three Houses of the Edain, the Houses of the Noldor, the Sindar or another faction among the 20 playable. Recreate the legendary deeds of the First Age, or rewrite them. The mod aims to follow Tolkien's own vision and descriptions of his universe, so you won't see plate armors like in Peter Jackson's movies. The mod is a total conversion, so everything will be made to make you travel in the mythic world of Beleriand and Middle-earth, including new units, new graphics, new scripts & events, unique characters, new animations, custom cities and many more.

Is the map actually going to extend far enough to get Moria on there? Also, when in the first age is the mod set?  :)

I shall be watching with interest - be good to see some more of the team here if you can persuade them over :D Particularly I'll be watching the stuff on the Dwarves, which are a specialism of mine (three journal essays published with a fourth in the works). If you need any advice on Dwarf-lore at all, ask and you shall receive far more than you needed :P

Also, your TWC link is broken.

Yes it will, in order to include the Kingdom of Khazad-dûm .

I've got this screen just for you, Jubal:

Just wondering but where can I find some info regarding middle earth at this time?

You could read the Silmarillion?  :P

Bear in mind that Wikia often gets things wrong on the detail, though the outline is generally right.

My predecessor as Steward of Gondor wrote a useful chronology in the CTS journal which you can get here if you want an overview:

Post by: comrade_general on April 06, 2014, 10:23:04 PM
Understandable though. If you've read everything that Tolkien wrote on the subject, which I have  >:D, he would sometimes change details over the thousands of years that he continuously wrote and rewrote the works.
Title: Re: Mod Overview
Post by: Jubal on April 06, 2014, 10:49:24 PM
Yeah - the issue isn't that so much as that the Wiki often includes either film details that have no basis or are contradicted by the books, or occasionally quotes secondary books that have made stuff up or introduced errors. But then I am something of a hawk on weak or baldy researched Tolkien scholarship.  :P

Bercor and Nelduin: could one of you write me some words for a frontpage post and PM them to me or CG? It would be good to have a front page announcement for Silmarillion TW coming to Exilian.   :)
Title: Re: Mod Overview
Post by: Tom on April 06, 2014, 10:56:34 PM
Thanks Jubal and CG I kind of want to know about the lore before I play the mod :)
Title: Re: Mod Overview
Post by: Jubal on April 06, 2014, 10:58:42 PM
Yeah, the Wiki or Anor are starting points, but really I massively would advise you to find the Silmarillion and read it. You can often find copies for less than a fiver in second hand bookshops.  :)
Title: Re: Mod Overview
Post by: Tom on April 06, 2014, 10:59:55 PM
Now I need to find some second hand bookshops, shouldn't be too hard :)

Better be Nelduin to do that. He is the publicity man!

Tom, another good site is Tolkien Gateway...about read Quenta Silmarillion, it can be hard to read the first time, but the most important parts that you must know to play the mod are :

-The Fall of Gondolin
-The Ruin of Doriath
-Beleriand and its Realms
-Lay of Leithian
-The book of Lost Tales
-The Sons of Hurin
-The Darkening of Valinor

and many more...of course!!!

Regards and thanks for your support.

Yes, I just posted our Valinor's Host Preview at TWC and ModDB. I will post it here as well tomorrow and send you something that suit for a frontpage news. Thanks for your interest and your help, Jubal!
