Welcome to the official Edain Mod Wiki, Companion of Edain! This is a wiki entirely dedicated to the Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle-Earth 2: Rise of the Witch-King addon: the Edain Mod. The Edain Mod is an total conversion mod for the Rise of the Witch-King that expands greatly on every aspect of the game using the lore and that uses the Battle for Middle-Earth 1 fixed plots building system. We are currently editing 494 pages with 18,178 edits in total, and we need all the help we can get!
The Ring Heroes are specific heroes in each faction of great strength and mighty will who dare to take upon the power of the One Ring at whatever cost. Apart from Sauron most are educated guesses drawing both from the movie and book lore along with a good dose of common sense. They are a key component from each faction and a unique selling point of the mod as no other mod presents such an exhaustive use of the Ring of Power. Units cannot pick the ring up and instead a Ring-Hero must be bought and brought to the Ring before it Gollum steals it back. A full list of all the Ring Heroes can be seen here.
The FAQ is a collective database of frequent user questions which the Edain Team and other members of the community have answered many times. They are answers which are unlikely to change and therefore there is little point in them being asked again and again. Therefore, before asking any questions, make sure to the check the FAQ out since it may have the answer to your question. However, if you don't find the answer you were looking for, you're more than welcome to ask a question on the either ModDB or Modding Union.
"I know. It's all wrong. By rights we shouldn't even be here. But we are. It's like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger, they were. And sometimes you didn't want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it's only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn't. They kept going. Because they were holding on to something."
About the image: This image was the profile picture of Ealendril der Dunkle who, for a long time, was the team leader of the Edain Mod along with being a coder, modeler, mapper and skin designer. There wasn't much Ealendril didn't take part when it came to the Edain Mod and he was also very active with the community when he had the time. Recently, because of time constraints he had to make a choice between real life and the mod and had to chose real life. He now works on smaller projects on the forums, we wish him the best on his future adventures.
