Minas Morgul: Faramir’s Plight - By Warlord Designs

Author File Description
File Details
Map Size: 400x400 (Large)
Difficulty: Hard
After a great deal of time and effort, Arthus and I are most pleased to bring the stronghold community the latest in our LOTR map series: Minas Morgul: Faramir’s Plight.

We hope you enjoy playing it as much as we did designing it...and a great deal more than we did scripting it. Quite the struggle...

The scenario is one of our own imagination, and doesn't follow any strict or accurate LOTR profile other than design recreation. The story is told from the point of Faramir who with his men rides against the fortress Minas Morgul and the Witch King of Angmar. This scenario takes on a 'what if' role. With Osgiliath taken, and Mordors army ready to strike Minas Tirith, Faramir rides to destroy the Witch King's forces and win his fathers respect.

We hope you enjoy it.

Here is some of the story, as usual you will find the full document, along with some helpful hints in the zipfile.

Minas Morgul: Faramir’s Plight - By Warlord Designs

Osgiliath is fallen. The once proud city now lays in ruin and its grandeur has succumbed to the ravages of war. The white bell towers in which doves had nestled and hatched their young, now crumble-their majesty but a memory, but a dream. The sound of children laughing has been drowned out by the sound of drums-and not even a whisper of good can be heard. Those who could have now fled to great white city of Minas Tirith, but this evil is different from other things. It moves swiftly like fire in the meadows, bringing down all that resist its wrath. It feels nothing, not the warmth of love-nor the bitter cold of sorrow. It is unlike anything else in this middle earth. The great city of Osgiliath which once proudly overlooked the golden fields of Pelennor is consumed. Mordor has come, they wait…

We slip by unnoticed and fade into the night…

IMPORTANT: Minas Morgul has been updated to allow players to recruit knights, we're are sorry for the error it seems we uploaded the wrong version.

Update includes: Path so knights can both gather at the barracks and also attack minas morgul all the way to the last gatehouse.

The update should add an effective and powerful unit to your limited line-up, enjoy

Arthus and Alexus,
Tammo VII Thanks for the update :D It'll be great now being able to have Knights, they are my absolute favourite unit ;)
Tammo VII Er ... sorry to be such a bother, but it seems that your edit didnt work - or perhaps im doing something wrong? I deleted the first version, and re-downloaded. However, now there is a group of my swordsmen on top of some towers inside Minas Morgul - and the knights still cant get out. Perhaps you uploaded the wrong one again?

Very, very nice!!! The enemy still attacks comming up from Minas Morgul:P FANTASTIC!!!

Balance: 5
It was very hard for me to "make balance good", the bigest problem was to warrant people food. But with some of effort i did it- it was very exciting

Creativity: 5
It's very good idea to put together protecting the hold and attacking enemy's fortress and situate it in climat of LOTR- This is awesome!!!
Map Design: 5
Like I said before- Arthus & Alexus are the best mapmakers in my opinion!!! Create the fortress based on movie and make it playable- that's very hard. Minas Morgul looks perfect, surroundings is also perfect!!!

Story/Instructions: 5
Maybe too short description in the game, but all the story and "walkthrough" tight in documents- the story of Faramir is very nice- I love it!!!

Additional Comments:
Summing up, next great projest by WL_D - I order it to everyone, who looks for very good made, and valuable invasion!!!
