Long ago, two towers were built on either side of the Morannon pass by the great men of Gondor. For many years, these towers guarded this pass, keeping the Dark Lord Sauron from entering his realm, Mordor. But the strength of Gondor failed, and these towers were abandoned, left to crumble and decay.
Then Sauron, seeing his opportunity, took these towers, towers that had been constructed by his enemy to keep him out. He built a great gate across the pass. The Black Gate, the Haunted Pass, Cirith Gorgor. The towers were repaired, and strengthened, and evil eyes looked from towers that were built to keep them out. The Teeth of Mordor they were called, and no one could pass them without feeling their bite.
Then Sauron, confident in his defenses, returned to his fortress, Barad-Dur. He plotted, and he grew in power, until he could assault the great races of Rohan and Gondor. His strike came hard, and it came fast. Rohan was able to retreat to Helm's Deep, where they repelled Sauron's army. Gondor, however, lost their capital city, Osgiliath, after years of fighting.
Sauron kmew it wa time for Gondor to fall. He concentrated his attack on Gondor's fortress, Minas Tirth, sending legions orcs against the White City. Gondor called for aid, and Rohan, despite their loss of troops after Helm's Deep, sent six thousand mounted troops to the White City.
In the fields of Pelenor, Sauron, Gondor, and Rohan soldiers battled, but again, Sauron was defeated. Gondor realized that their only hope of survival was to assault the Black Gate and the Teeth of Mordor. All of the remaining soldiers were sent of to the Black Gate in a final battle that would decide the future of Men...

This map is VERY hard. In the file you will find tips how to beat it, as well as sound files that replace some of your Crusader sound files, and instructions on how to use them. Do NOT use the files without making a backup of the original files or without understanding the full process of replacing them. I would lkie to thank Drowzee1872 fr his playtesting support as well as Duc de Noisiel for his support.
