REQUIRES SHADOW MAGIC 1.3 PATCHES OR HIGHER but no Mods.

The latest and best version of Quest of Earendil (formerly known as Middle-Earth in the First Age: Quest of Earendil) is changed to benefit from Beren's Arda Mapset. You can get it here: http://aow2.heavengames.com/downloads/viewinfo.php?id=493
But if you really dislike mod packs for some reason, here is the older version, version 1.3.

Tolkien's masterpiece THE SIMARILLION is faithfully brought to life in this single-player game, featuring an accurate map of Beleriand, most of the characters in this part of the story, and many event messages directly quoted from Tolkien. At the same time, it is an exciting and challenging, character RPG-style map, with tons of scripts and special events and puzzles to solve. It is a short and sweet, relatively small map which you can play to completion in a few hours. But it is designed to be a challenge, which will be very hard to win on your first try. If you liked my previous map MIDDLE-EARTH IN THE SECOND AGE, you will appreciate the Tolkien authenticity of this one as well. Players who have seen the LotR movies but haven't read THE SIMARILLION will be able to learn something about it from this map. If you like strong RPG-style maps, you will like the puzzles and challenge of this one as well even if you don't usually like Middle-Earth maps. Give it a try!

The story starts with you in command of the city of Gondolin, under siege by the forces of Morgoth. Somehow you must escape and survive, and, although Morgoth's conquest of Middle Earth is nearly complete, find allies and find a path to victory.

SETTINGS: Classic Turns, Allied Victory On, Build Outposts Enabled

Playability: 4
Tightly scripted, so this makes playability somewhat constrained.

Balance: 5
You are given just enough resources to succeed.

Creativity: 5
Extensive use of events and scripting plus use of existing units to fill roles from story.

Map Design: 5
It all works!

Story/Instructions: 5
Stongest part of game as it leads you through the story.

Additional Comments:

One small spelling mismatch between town name and instructions. A little hard to find way through the restricted western seaway.

I really liked that this didn't require mods as they are too much of a hastle to install and manage.

Mithrandirdragon This scenario is VERY hard, however. Even with cheats and lots of spellpoints and a generous quickbattle result I can NEVER get past the Balrog in the mountains. :(
