Total Conversion mod Based on Lord of the Rings?

Given that this game is suppose to be completely moddabel, I was wondering if anyone was interested in trying to put together a group to do a total conversion mod based on Lord of the Rings. I know nothing of modding but can help on the lore side and perhaps recruiting others from other Tolkien/gami...

Re: War of the Ring- LOTR Grand Strategy Board Game

Yes, 1st edition was already a wonderfull game, maybe the best Tolkien boardgame. It is to be play in a full day or a 2-afternoons weekend. The small flaw was it's better to use it with 2 players than with 4, I don't know about the 2nd ed. We have not yet played 4. We will be playing a 2v1 soon and...

War of the Ring- LOTR Grand Strategy Board Game

Highly recommend it. Read the reviews and they are not lying. I would wait for summer when a reprint comes so the price goes down.

2 Question- Auto Resolve Battles and Modding

1] I do not own Field of Glory II and am not a fan of the battles shown in Field of Glory Empires [I do think it an amazing feature to transport battles out of game and results back in]. So I was wondering if their would be an option to auto resolve the battles as was done in civil war 2 instead. 2]...

I just wanted to let the developers know the two reasons i will buy this game and spread the word. Mod friendly - If this game is as moddabel as they say, that alone is a sale to me. 1 6 player MP - Speaks for itself. If it ends up 8 I am ok with that as well. I played and loved civil war 2 but have...
