Welcome to Valarian Mod Studios

The Wars of Arda is a (very) large expansion mod for the EA Games title "The Lord of the Rings: The Rise of the Witchking". We will first be heavily reworking the existing factions (adding Rohan and Harad and merging the Goblins into Isengard) and implementing a "minifaction" system where you begin a skirmish map with a "Core Faction" which contains a variety of units and heroes, and you purchase "Mini Factions" as the match prgresses, giving you access to new units and heroes.

The Mod will also be implementing several "Eras" into the mod. This will NOT be an Empire Earth style system where you upgrade from one era to another, but a system where each era is a separate set of skirmish factions and campaign missions (however all factions will be able to play against each other). The eras of the mod will be as follows.

The War of the Jewels
The Last Alliance
The Rise of the Witchking
The Wainriders Invasion
The Quest of Erebor
The War of the Ring
The New shadow

Each era will consist of between 2 and 7 factions, each with between 3 and 5 "mini factions".


The mod is now available, and can be downloaded from our page on ModDB!


The mod also has a new feature called "Be-A-Hero". Wherever possible we are adhering to a mix of the LoTR movies and the works of tolkien, but in many cases there are not enough characters to adaquetely fill the required numbers of Heroes for each faction (10-15 heroes per faction), so we are allowing people to submit designs for their own personal Avatar to appear in the mod. This can be voiced by you and you can even appear on the skin/unit portrait.

Examples of current heroes are Calintz of Rhun, and the black Numenorean General Eraus, commander of the defence of Barad Dur against the Last Alliance (mod team get the most impressive characters!).

I cannot guarantee youll get the character you want (were FULLY stocked with Elves already im afraid) but within reason I will try and include your character, until all the spaces for new Avatars are full.

I rated the mod ok. The mod has a lot to offer. It was simple to install for me. Im soso with computers. The mod game play had a lot of heros. The only negative thing i can say was that, they give you all these heros but you cant use them all because of cost LOL. I had to keep droping castles in order to get the heros i wanted to battle. Also you can only build structures within your castles influence ring, that killed the AI. The AI was send so many low leveled troops at me because thats all it could afford to send. after a few maps i was like next. There was no challenge because the AI could not afford to fight.

The demo is actually a beta version. It is the most recent download available to the public.

Hi, umm... I can't find a download link on your site. I see a trailer and a demo, but no beta. Am I supposed to just download the demo or...

I've got a problem: Noldor and most of the Mirkwood units can't kill anything. They just don't damage enemy units... That's really frustrating. Does anyone has this issue?

The first era is still a long way off, because its one of the last eras to be done.
