V2 The Map has been fixed at the gate house. All is still the same. In progress of fixing the woods.
In the first movie after Gandalf fell, the fellowship left the mines of Moria and headed towards Lothlorien. On their way there they met up with Hardir the captain and leader of a small company of elves which though they were foes. In this map the very same thing happens. The fellowship are right outside of Moria mourning for the loss of their companion, Legolas and Sam are the last to come out.(archers 1 and monk1 for sam and legolas) then after you get moving towards the lands of Lothlorien, you are cuaght up by Hardir with his band of Elves "the dwarf breathes so loud we could of shot him in the dark" now together you must make your way towards the woods which are not far from your location. Remember the enemy are right behind you. After you make it to Lothlorien the city it self and the woods. The enemy will begin to attack. The siege is hard since you only got a few archers and the fellowship. But there are reinforcements which you need to find in the city. The walls are made of threes and they will not hold out for long, therefore take the enemy out before they reach the wall. There are 2 parties of archers outside. Use them wisely as they will come in handy. You can either set up and do as much damage as possible or move back and hold out. There is a catch. If more than 150 Elves die you lose. If Celeborn is killed you also lose. Ive included such details in the map such as the mirror in which Frodo sees his future, and the Exit from Moria. I also liked the fact that the main Orc force makes its way from the Mines themselves through the exit!! Lastly Review this map as it can always be improved. Have fun and enjoy.-Map best played on Hard and Vhard for advance players...Novice players use normal.
This was a very fun map, another LotR by figster. Many of your maps have been based solely out of the movie, and the story lines show it. Maybe to get an ultimate LotR feel, read the books, Tolkien gave vivid descriptions of all the places in his books. Heck, he even wrote other books explaining the trilogy.
Playabiliy - 4
This was very fun, and I gave a four to show it. I liked having to put my troops into position quickly.
Balance - 3
Pretty well balanced, although the enemy didn't even touch the second gatehouse, not to mention the third
Creativity - 4
Very Creative, enough said.
Map Design - 4
Again, about how the books AND the movie in the movie in this instance, Lothlorien was known for its beauty and large trees. On its borders were rolling grasslands and small trees. It was not bleak and rocky like you portrayed it. Even inside the forest were many large hills and a few rivers. Overall, I was very, very impressed with the design. Great work.
Story/Instructions - 4
Very Good, I think you put in as much as it allows. There were a few qualms I had with it though, I'm a stickler for details ;) especially being a hardcore LotR fan. Its Haldir not Hadrir.
Overall, another good LotR map from Figster.
