    Default DCI: Last Alliance - Open Beta released, get your copy and play folks!



    DCI: Last Alliance is a
    TATW submod and the independent sequel to Dúnedain Counter Invasions: Tôl Acharn

    Take the role as Gil-galad, last High-king of the Noldor, or Elendil, High-king of the Númenóreans in exile, as they rally Elves and honourable Men into the League which is called the Last Alliance.
    The counter-invasion Tôl Acharn, 'Vengeance Comes', allows you to move mighty hosts against the Dark Lord.

    Strengthen the cause of the League if you wish to, as the indomitable Durin IV of Khazad-dûm, or as the brave riders of Rhovanion (using the DCI mechanic).

    Unless you wish instead to fulfill the will of Sauron? Unleash the hunger of Orcs and wolves, be the warlord over the Easterlings, command the savage natives of Eriador to recapture their homelands,
    or reign as a Black Númenórean lord at the head of the grim Haradrim, in the Invasion of the West.

    Will the Men of the Mountains be loyal to the Númenóreans, or will they become the Oathbreakers instead? The choice is yours.

    DCI: Last Alliance Public Beta Requirements:

    'DCI:Last Alliance Public Beta' requires the 'Medieval II Total War Kingdoms Expansion' and the mod 'Third Age Total War 3.2'
    A fresh working installation of 'Third Age Total War 3.2' is recommended Download and Instructions for TATW 3.2 If you can't start DCI:LA after you installed it, try the Submod fix HERE.
    Alternatively, there is a simple "quick and dirty" TATW 3.2 install option with a smaller file size, located directly below the "Installation Guide Video"
    For setting up multiple installations of 'Third Age Total War 3.2' please follow this Guide by Emperor of Hell

    DCI Last Alliance installer instructions:

    1. Download the files below

    2. DCI_LA_BETA_Part1of2.exe and DCI_LA_BETA_Part2of2.exe have to be installed into the default installation path: "...\SEGA\Medieval II Total War"
    or "...Steam\steamapps\common\Medieval II Total War" for Steam users. (If you have installed Medieval II into another folder, please check if the installation path is correct.)
    The installation process will overwrite your TATW files, meaning that you will not be able to play TATW.

    3. At the end of the installation for DCI_LA_BETA_Part2of2.exe a cleaner will delete files that need to be auto-generated at game launch, you'll be prompted to 'press any key to continue...'

    The hope is that it will end up appealing and great fun hehe

    Rosters are not decided yet, not at that stage; but intend to make use of vanilla units, FRoME:s and whatever new ones I find interesting and may get permission for. Taro_M has for example good creations and Curufin as well, perhaps AUM etc.

    WOW AWESOMEEEE!!!

    Will you have 2 Numenorean factions or just 1? Cause Isildur's brother hold off Sauron's forces at Osgilliath while he travelled to his Father Elendil for a response to this threat...

    If Eregion is already destroyed will Imladris be in?

    Love it already...haha

    @ Ovarion
    The Númenóreans are one faction. They may been two realms but is one nation, with Elendil as a common highking, as was Isildur after him, while the last until Aragorn came thousands of years later. Call it a United Kingdom if you like; perhaps enjoy anyone who likes the Reunited kingdom I presume haha.
    Further it creates a from TATW very different and strategic challenging campaign, with multiple fronts at the same time to handle.

    Imladris belongs the the Kingdom of Lindon (HE)

    @ Araval
    Thanks mate

    Certainly, a 3d tier unit that is - to their enemies dismay
    In later days, in the wars upon Middle-earth, it was the bows of the Númenóreans that were most greatly feared. "The Men of the Sea," it was said, "send before them a great cloud, as a rain turned to ser­pents, or a black hail tipped with steel;" and in those days the great cohorts of the King's Archers used bows made of hollow steel, with black-feathered arrows a full ell long from point to notch.
    - UT; A Description of the Island of Númenor

    [The Orcs] were silent now, and kept at a distance out of the range of the dreaded steelbows of Númenor, though the light was fast failing, and Isildur had all too few archers for his need.

    YAY! I would advise you to not have Numenorean cavalry as it would be unrealistic, considering it would be exceedingly difficult to breed horses strong enough to be mounted by a Numenorean in full armour.If they need to have cavalry, they could have horse-archers.

    The cavalry aspect of the Númenórean roster is yet not decided upon (while some already have been sketched out), but the facts from Tolkien are known. We'll stick to lore (and many would be surprised on me otherwise I presume hehe) as far as it's reasonable from a game play perspective

    In my opinion, the Numenoreans should have a strong core of Heavy Infantry,Spearmen and Archers, great building abilities [Could be implemented as faster build time], the Palantiri, some Armour and Weapon upgrades and a mighty Fleet. On the other hand they have very limited cavalry options,slower recruitment and expensive units which require high Culture. You could also change the name of their faction to ''The Realm in Exile". You can use what you will from this list.

    The unit considerations are in line with what's intended, with least lacking any heavy cavalry ("auxilary" cavalry forces were indeed used). The palantiri will be reworked by Withwnar (he's the creator of them to begin with) and they will be both more (six) and they will be much more potent than in vanilla TATW, with no drawbacks either
    Faster building was an interesting idea! Will see how that balance up, since they will start with the in general largest quantity of high level cities/forts anyway; which they on the other hand needs because as it looks they will be really in the brown when this campaign kicks off haha

    I will make use of the 'Exile' terminology in descriptions but if put like that it would rather sound like it's the realms (and not the Dúnedain within the realms) that's in exile - further the majority of least Gondors population are not Dúnedain, but partly related and/or led by them. Then it's simply very long, and since there's not "Black Númenórean" faction it works out. If you prefere, once released, to have the name changed that's very easy to edit for anyone themselves
