"But those who saw the things that were done in that time, deeds of valour and wonder, have elsewhere told the tale of the War of the Ring, and how it ended both in victory unlooked for and in sorrow long foreseen. Here let it be said that in those days the Heir of Isildur arose in the North, and he took the shards of the sword of Elendil, and in Imladris they were reforged; and he went then to war, a great captain of Men. He was Aragorn son of Arathorn, the nine and thirtieth heir in the right line from Isildur, and yet more like to Elendil than any before him. Battle there was in Rohan, and Curunír the traitor was thrown down and Isengard broken; and before the City of Gondor a great field was fought, and the Lord of Morgul, Captain of Sauron, there passed into darkness; and the Heir of Isildur led the host of the West to the Black Gates of Mordor.

The War of the Ring mission maps are a series of heavily scripted map presented by Fredius. They start the player at the head of a mighty army opposing another mighty army on some of the iconic battles of Middle Earth. !!Disclaimer!! Legendary fun may follow.

Also make sure to vote on the poll to tell which mission map you'd like to see next. !!Other Disclaimer for real this time!! SOOOOOO MUCH SPOILERS FOLLOW, EVERY SINGLE MAP IS WRITTEN OUT IN THE MOST DETAIL RIGHT HERE, DON'T SAY I DIDN'T WARN YOU

Installation of Mission Maps Edit

General Installation Edit

Okay now read very carefully, these are the installation instructions for adding the maps to the game and setting it up in the skirmish menu; my mission maps have a little different procedure compared to regular skirmish maps.

Go to your "My The Lord of the Rings, The Rise of the Witch-king Files", you can access it by pressing "Windows-key" and "R" at the same time, this will open the "Run" option. Type "%appdata%" in the search box without the quote marks, and you will get to the hidden Appdata folder, and you will see the "My The Lord of the Rings, The Rise of the Witch-king Files" folder inside of it. Open that folder, and then open the folder called "Maps". Put the map in that folder, and you can now find the map in the skirmish mode.

Battle Under the Trees Arc Installation Edit

The player must be Lothlorien, and pick NO second player, or else it will result in a quick victory (it sounds nice but you haven't even done anything :D!) Also the player must select the bottom start location in the Skirmish menu, that's the place where the  Elven armies are.

Resurrection of Angmar Arc Installation Edit

The player must be Angmar, and pick NO second player in the Skirmish Menu, or else it will result in a quick victory (it sounds nice but you haven 't even done anything !). Also the player must select the top start location in the Skirmish menu, that's the place where the Angmar army is placed.

Invasion of Rohan Arc Installation Edit

BFME1: For Invasion of Rohan series: REMEMBER! The player must be Isengard in the Evil missions, and Rohan in the Good missions. Pick NO second player in the Skirmish Menu, or else it will result in a quick victory (it sounds nice but you haven 't even done anything !). Also the player must select the top start location in the Skirmish menu for the Fords of Isen map, that's the place where Isengard starts.

This is a special Mission!! This map require sound files from BFME1, which I have included in the download. Please follow these steps in adding the sound files to the game (can also be read in the README files included in the downloads.

Battle Under the Trees Arc Edit

The Battle Under the Trees arc is part of Fredius's War of the Ring Mission Map Series and stars the player as Lothlórien defending Mirkwood and Lothlórien against the armies of Mordor. Both maps have a similar skeleton with the objective of first resisting the onslaught of troops and then attacking back and destroying the leader. The leader in the Lothlórien map is the Shadow Lord and in the Mirkwood map is Khamul. The Mirkwood map is the first installment and the Lothlórien map is the second.

Sauron has ordered him to resurrect the old Kingdom of Angmar, and resume the conquest of the North. Vaztumir must gather enough allies, both old and new, to wage war against the vigilant Dunedain, and eventually the Elves of Imladris. Aid Vaztumir in his task to show Middle-Earth that the threat of the North has not yet been defeated! However, the Elves of Imladris and the Dunedain of the North won't just stand by and idly watch how Angmar grows again.
