It'll only be there for a limited time of turns (10 I think) after that it'll move to another settlement, and you will get a new message about it
i'm playing as eriador and i received a message saying that the one ring has been located in Dol guldur , does it mean sauron will spawn? or he just spawn around turn 200 ?
From the FAQ:
Q: How do I acquire the One Ring ?
A: Through events in your campaign you will be automatically notified where the One Ring might be located. If you conquer the settlement in question (the event will tell you which one) within the given time limit, your general will acquire the One Ring. When this happens an event will automatically pop up explaining you have successfully acquired the One Ring.
Q: What happens if do not acquire the One Ring after receiving several messages about its location ?
A: If you play as a good faction, the One Ring will always somehow end up in the hands of its former master Sauron. When Sauron is resurrected, he will be introduced on the campaign map in the form of a unique and powerful general. Mordor will also become stronger when this scenario becomes a reality. Your relations with other good factions will be penalized for the fact you haven’t tried to prevent Sauron from regaining the One Ring.
Q: When do I have to take the One Ring to the White Council ?
A: You must have the One Ring for at least 10 turns in possession when playing as a good faction. After this an event tells you, you have to bring the One Ring to the Council. Based on certain conditions, this can be at (the event will tell you where): Imladris, Mithlond or Caras Galadhon.
Q: Do I have to bring the One Ring to the White Council within the given time-limit with my ringbearer ?
A: It is a requirement if you want to have the possibility to destroy the One Ring later in your campaign. If you fail to meet the demands of the Council leader to show up at the meeting in time, the relations with other good faction will be less good as a result.
Q: What happens if the One Ring gets stolen from my ringbearer ?
A: You will have to be patient and wait until your spies report to you where the One Ring might be located.
Q: What is up with these reduced movement points of my ringbearer ?
A: The closer the One Ring gets to Mount Doom the more it can influence the One Ringbearer. It will become harder and harder to reach Mount Doom. These effects to do not apply to the Nazgūl and Sauron.
Q: When I reach Mordor controlled regions with my ringbearer, they automatically declare war to me. How is this possible ?
A: Mordor and more specifically Sauron want to have the One Ring back. Unconditionally.
Q: How do I destroy the One Ring?
A: You must play as a good faction and you must have accepted the task from the White Council to destroy the One Ring. Bring you ringbearer to Mount Doom and keep him there for more than 5 turns.
Q: What happens if I managed to destroy the One Ring ?
A: Mordor will lose all of their armies on the campaign map.
Q: How do I resurrect Sauron when I play as an evil faction (not when playing as Mordor) ?
A: First you must acquire the One Ring. Second you will be informed through an event that you have to take the One Ring to Sauron. You can achieve this by positioning your ringbearer in front of the Black Gate. Ensure that the Black Gate and Barad-dūr is controlled by Mordor! If you succeed, Sauron will be very pleased and will reward greatly for bringing the One Ring to him.
Q: What happens if I fail to give the One Ring back to Sauron within the given time-limit ?
A: Sauron will give the order to the other evil factions to take the One Ring from you. They will as a result all declare war to you. You will also lose the Dark Lord’s protection.
Q: How do I resurrect Sauron when I play as Mordor ?
A: Acquire the One Ring and take it back to Barad-dūr with your ringbearer.
Q: What happens if I let Sauron get killed ?
A: Besides losing a extremely powerful general , your economy will take a serious ''hit''.
Ah right. I've read through the FAQ a couple of times now and I'm still trying to work out exactly what happens. I'm trying to work out how Sauron can get the ring if the AI 'evil' factions aren't capable of taking it to him. Does it just happen if the ring appears in Mordor or something?
If you're playing as a good faction and fail to retrieve the ring. Sauron will eventually discover it on his own. I'm not sure if the same applies if you're playing an evil faction though.Q: What happens if do not acquire the One Ring after receiving several messages about its location ?
A: If you play as a good faction, the One Ring will always somehow end up in the hands of its former master Sauron. When Sauron is resurrected, he will be introduced on the campaign map in the form of a unique and powerful general. Mordor will also become stronger when this scenario becomes a reality. Your relations with other good factions will be penalized for the fact you havent tried to prevent Sauron from regaining the One Ring.
You just get the ring if you capture the settlement and stay one turn with your general there , i think they should implement a event where a general spawns with the ring and when he is defeated the ring goes to the winner is that possible to do?
Ah right thats explained it thank you. The senario I had in my head was an evil general with the ring marching back to mordor and me having to try and intercept him before he made it.
I have a question about custom battles.
For some reason, before I could play a seige battle at a fortress like the Hornburg and Minas Tirith. But for some reason now, there's no options in the settlement and culture slots to make it a seige battle :/ Did it break? I had started a new game as the HE, so would that affect custom battles too?
Some questions i have from my campaign as Rhun
How long do the generals live my king is 110 and i have 4 generals in their 90s
I seem to remember there is a way to keep your army in formation when moving instead of the usual mess with units all out of formation. Which key(s) is it.
The garrison script seems to give certain cities bonus units when i attack them. Is there any way to avoid triggering this. And which cities have a garrison script.

I have used search and read through 3 threads on the subject but I still am not able to recruit ents playing TATW. I am playing as the Silvan Elves and this is turn 200+ in my game.
What conditions must be met in order to recruit them as mercenaries using a general?
-Must I own Fanghorn?
-Can only certain generals recruit them?
-I presume they are recruited in the countryside of the Fanghorn territory by right-clicking a general's unit card but I see no mercenaries available for hire
-Does Isengard having owned the territory earlier in the game terminate their availability?
I believe I have tried all of these conditions and still cannot find them.

I hope this helps

Thanks for the info, I actually read that thread before. I was wondering about the mercenary hiring method rather than the autonomy script for this particular game.
They used to be available for hire as mercenaries for Elven factions, but I don't think that option is available any more. You must own Fangorn and give them autonomy.
Could someone explain (once again) what is the difference between battle difficulties? Is it only morale bonus or also stats bonuses and/or AI improvement? Sorry for bringing this but I have found some different answers to this question and I would like to be sure.
@ppetrus, I think that the enemy is stronger, and a bit more strategic.
But I also have a question: what are the effects of obedience, command and authority. Command somehow helps in battle, but I don't know how. Authority makes your faction more reliable, but does it have any other effects? I don't know anything about obedience.
Battle difficulty doesn't do anything besides increasing the enemy morale and reducing your own morale.
Command increases the morale of your units, and I believe makes it more likely for your troops to come back from routing. (maybe it has some other bonus as well, like reducing the enemy morale a bit, but I've never heard of it.)
Obedience increases tax income as long as the general is gouverning the city and makes it less likely for Inquisitors (or Servants of Sauron in TATW) to kill the general.
As far as I know, authority only makes it less likely for your armies to ge rebel or get bribed.
