What is a submod?

Going on our definition, a submod is a version of the base Lord of the Rings mod that has edited the assets or code of the mod. Our submod uses both of these methods to repurpose the Lord of the Rings mod (set in the third age) into a (sub)mod set in the First Age. Note that you cannot use both the Lord of the Rings mod and the First Age submod at the same time.


The First Age submod uses an edited map that adds Beleriand to the map, and removes the rest of Middle-earth.

We have chosen to remove the rest of Middle-earth and replace it with ocean to keep the gameplay focused on Beleriand.

The First Age submod adds many new factions to the mod. Some of these factions are brand-new, custom coded in - and some of them are factions from the LOTRmod that have been renamed and repurposed. You can play as an elf of Doriath, a man from Dor-lómin, or an orc of Angband.
