    Default Last Alliance - Download, Information and General Discussion


    Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
    Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
    Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
    One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
    In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
    One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
    One Ring to bring them all, and in the darkness bind them,
    In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.

    Last Alliance: TW is total conversion of Shogun 2. This mod base on stories from Tolkien's books, concretely on end of Second Age when Elves and Numenoreans fought against Sauron - many years before events from "The Hobbit" and "Lord of the Rings". The goal of the mod is changing most aspects of the game: models, units, campaign map, ui, music, battlemaps, etc.

    You can find mod also on: MODDB, Discord, totalrtsmods

    DOWNLOAD Last Alliance: TW Alpha 0.1.0:
    - MODDB + Hotfix

    Recommended difficulty level: Normal

    In full version I want put campaing with north-west part of Middle-Earth, with all known factions and races and important characters. Start date will be in 3429 of Second Age, when Sauron attacked Minas Ithil.

    But firstly I published alpha with mini-campaign. Mini-campaign is prologue (and technicaly this is alternative history) to full campaign, with start date in 3255 of Second Age. In 3255 of Second Age died Tar-Palantir - last legal king of Numenor. Next ruler should be Tar-Miriel - his daughter, but her cousin - Pharazon returned to Numenor from Middle-Earth, forced her to marry and taked crown of Numenor.
    This action was illegal, but in books no one tried to stop him. So, Pharazon ruled as next King of Numenor but when he attacked Valinor, Kingdom and Island was destroyed in great disaster.
    In mini-campaign I want to give option to change this story. Start date it time when Pharazon returned to Numenor and is in Rómenna before heading to capital. Will be possible to play as Tar-Miriel, Pharazon or one lord from royal council.

    Alpha version 0.1.0 include:
    - One playable culture - Numenorean
    - Numenorean units
    - New animations for units with shields
    - New campaign map with 28 provinces (Numenor Island) and 8 playable factions
    - Important characters (Amandil, Tar-Miriel, Pharazon)
    - New building chains for Numenorean
    - New models on campaign map
    - New resources (e.g. Mithril)
    - New technologies and comander skill tree
    - New music (by Filip Oleyka) and units sounds
    - And more...

    In updates I want add:
    - Next cultures and factions (elves, dwarves, haradrims, orcs) with units
    - Animations for dwarves and orcs
    - Next provinces (west coast of Middle-Earth)
    - New battlemaps with new models
    - Naval battles
    - Regional units system (eg. Dunedain will can recruit elves units in elves provinces)
    - And more...

    Awesome and a very good idea to start with a "Teaser".
    May I suggest you keep this small campaign as an appetizer and prologue even when the "main thing" arrives (which will probably take a few years...)

    If I may, how did you deal with Realm Divide in this campaign?

    Would it be possible to "enlarge" the "mini" campaign map a bit and perhaps add a few more provinces? An island of 400-800 miles across is a damn big place... it is probably double the size of Japan.

    +rep and I hope you find a lot more patrons as this work is awesome.
    S2TW is the most moddable total war title in existence but how much can be done with it, is often overshadowed.

    To be honest, in future will be two grand campaign in mod (Akallabeth and Last Alliance), because I have plan to expand this mini-campaign in updates. I mean e.g. when I will prepare Lindon army and building - mini-campaign receive Lindon territory
    About Realm Divide - I only changed requirements that are now unachievable
    And no, I can't enlarge Numenor Island because would be to big relative to Middle-Earth (when I will add Middle-Earth on map). Campaign map has resticted size (I'm trying take off this restiction, but I didn't do it yet )

    Oh, you plan to "include" this as is in the main campaign once it's done?
    Wouldn't it be possible to have two separate maps? One that is just a big numenor island, with more provinces etc (i.e. like Japan in S2TW) and a different campaign map which has a small numenor with perhaps 7-10 provinces and the rest of the middle earth?

    Creating one campaign map is very much work, and for this reason I decided make both campaign in the same map scale. In future in mini-campaign will be also Lindon, Enedwaith, Harad and other lands. And when I will have units for all (or most) factions I will just remove Numenor from map (because when was Last Alliance War Numenor doesn't exist) and I will change start situation for Last Alliance War

    Very well, thank you for all the effort.

    How do we use this mod? The hotfix goes first?

    The game has a learning curve. I would say it is closer to NTW than S2TW.
