Edoras by WarLord Designs

Author File Description
File Details
Map Size: 400x400 (Large)
Difficulty: Normal
The golden sun that once glowed over the foothills of Rohan struggle to break through the darkened sky, the land once abundant in life now cringes at sight of its own people as though they leaked some hideous poison, some foul deed irreversible in its void. The stones and the rock faces harbour no moss or shrubs and the light that once warmed its cold surface, echoes still death on the faces of the people of Rohan. The trees that had grown at the waters edge many a king ago stand still and bent, their dead bark skins shield any love or warmth as they slowly perish in the cold grey light that filters through the thick clouds. The fog that lifts from the land carries the foul curses of lost souls; evil once again rises from the darkness of Mordor. Like a foul poison the dark lord’s will and influence slips unnoticed through the land taking advantage of lesser people, lesser men. The land that had been so still is again siring evils unknown, incomparable. With each and every passing day Rohan is beset by its own people and a new danger is beginning to mount on the city walls or Edoras and the Golden Hall of Theoden, king of Rohan. The Nomads of Eastfold gather under a new flag, yet it carries no white stallion or noble steed. Wildsmen grow closer with each passing day rallied under darkened war banners bearing the white hand, Mordor’s grip has tightened on this middle earth and the wizard Saruman has allied himself with the dark lord Sauron, forging the union of the two towers. The days now grow seemingly longer and the city towers are never without warrior, with each rising sun more villagers flee to the safety or Edoras’s walls, the light that was abundant has almost ceased and the clouds grow increasingly dark overhead. Theoden, our king had sent out scouts days earlier and yet our eyes have seen nothing, our ears heard nothing. The days are getting increasingly cold and the frost clings tighter to the shrubs underfoot. The flowers of white lace that once covered the tombs of our past lords have all but gone, and when you stand in their presence souls seem to cower in the shadows, afraid of what warmth the sun offers to us.

The full storylin can be vewed within the zipfile,

Have Fun.

WL_D. Alexus and Arthus.

Darkslave Master since i havent seen your name here before bow_master i assume your new here and a mistake that the newcomers mostly make is forgetting to unzip their files before playing...if you do or dont do that will make a diffirence....
hope this is your problem since its solved easy...

p.s: to the WL_D team, thanks for sending over the map, when i get some more time ill play it and most likely you can expect a nice 5 from me

No problem DSM,

Good thinking about the zipfile, never thought of that, are speaking from experience?;)

Can't wait to hear what you think. :)

bow_master13 well, i am new here but i am unzipping my files.
another thing is that it only does that for invasion and economic maps, the skirmish maps work just fine.

but thanks for the ideas!

p.s. i also put my first map on. the "Look Out Towers" mabye somebody would like to rate it for me :)
bow_master13 i guys i got the problem fixed:)

it was the stupidest thing that i have done in a long time so i am not going to tell how i fixed it ;)

thanks again for the ideas.

ps. WL_D do you ever put a map this good up for crusader? you should

well bow master your wishes will soon come true,
you may not have noticed but I am currently working on a map for crusader called Krak De Chivaliers.

I also have done two other crusader maps, the Citadel of Tripoli and Reynal De Chatillon-The siege of Kerak.

Arthus despises the crusader editor so he just helps out with ideas and playtesting mainly. Just put our name through the search and you will find a list of our works.

The map was EXTREMELY fun to play, and I've tried and tried but I just can't beat it, not even on easy, but then, I'm not such a good player anyway.

Balance: 5
This was perfect, just a little bit too hard for me.

Creativity: 5
WOW! This is probably the most creative and eye-catching rich maps on the whole Stronghold Heaven! Wow!

Map Design: 5
This is just amazing. There isn't ANY map that beats this. It just isn't. Congratulations guys!

Story/Instructions: 5
Well, you didn't actually make up the story yourself, but I wouldn't lower the score for anything.

Additional Comments:
One of the best maps I've ever seen! The custom sounds were just great, and everything else was perfect. Keep up the good work(s) guys! ;)

Thanks for the review,
about the story though, actually I did make it up myself, I just invented it using characters and evets from the book and movie so I guess its kind of half half,
I dont think theres a realy detailed story on an attack on edoras so had to be a bit more creative.

Thanks again, let us know if you beat it in the future.

bow_master13 yeah, the crusader map editor is pretty anoying, but since that is all i have i will have to deal with it :)

i have played one of your other maps and i liked it so i cant wait for the new one!
Andy Baz Is this map 15 meg? :) INCREDIBLE. Well I’ve downloaded it finally on my narrow-band connection. Only took me, a hundred and one ages, but judging by the map design it was well worth the wait. Haven’t played it yet but it looks tremendous and I so much like the new sound files. I don’t often play LOTR maps, actually never, but this one was one I felt compelled to do. The great scores speak for themselves, I guess nothing less than you deserve :). Hopefully going to play this beauty soon. Either way great work from you 2.
