After the war of the ring, the Hobbits returned to their beloved shire and found it taken by Saruman's armies, who enslaved their fellow people (this is what happened in the book). Now you have the chance to claim it. Beware, you will have to face many of Saruman's servants before you can reach your opponent and even some of the hobbits are now under his command. However, for starters you will have one squad of fighting hobbits under your command as well as a farm. Since the game is based of the film rather than the book, my level shows the shire as it would be if men had lost the war, i.e. it has some features of Isengard as well as Mordor. It is most suitable for 2 vs 2 or 1 vs 1 multiplayer and should not be played against the PC. (warning) the level has a very violent atmosphere. If you would be disturbed by the view of a hobbit slaughter pit (as you should be) don't play the map.
