AoW3 map, requires the Golden Realms (Halfling) DLC. An XL map, with 8 playable factions, and several lesser factions. Playable Factions: Gondor, Rohan, Hobbits (with a little help from Thorin), High Elves, Mordor, Haradrim, Misty Mountain Goblins, and Gundabad Orcs. I believe that the map was originaly created by Nemesis13, and has subsequently been substantially edited by Shaithias and now by me, Roger The Dodger. Added a lot more Hobbits. More extensive caverns. All playable wizards now have a hero. Hobbits are a fictional, diminutive, humanoid race who inhabit the lands of Middle-earth in J. R. R. Tolkien's fiction. They are also referred to as Halflings. I'll leave you to work the story out for yourself.

dando85 Dear Roger,

I have a problem to run the scenario. The same problem applies for the previous one (Jolly Roger). I have patch 1.4.

Your files have .sam format. Can you please help me how to run your scenarios?

Unfortunately this is a map for Age of Wonders III, not for Age of Wonders 2 / Shadow Magic, so it won't run with your game.

Sorry about that.

However, I did make quite a few maps for those games too, although quite a lot of them would need Brave New World mod or Dwiggs mod running, as well as Upatch 1.4, so they are probably best for experienced players. Here's the list:
dando85 Thank you for answer!
firegolem Hello Roger,
awesome map! I love it, I tried to play nearly with every fraction (not with Elves and Mordor). The integration of the Hobbits seems very appropriate. I like the concept of the over-strong evil alliance. An alliance of evil lords can beat an alliance of emperors.
So finally, I played with the MapEditor too and added/updated several script event logic to be more organic. If I could send you this map version, I would be very glad (I published my email).
One bad thing is that you can not negotiate with most of the independent cities (but I changed nothing on this because unfortunately, this is how the map works).
I also informed me now about the whole original lore.

Saruman is called "the Wise" not "the White" (but seems very trivial)?
An event for Gandalf "the White" would be good?
The default human Hobbit player doesn't really exist for play?
