The Modders and Mappers of the Liquid Fire Studios: Legends of the Third Age Team Proudly Present....



For over 2 years, the Legends of the Third Age team have been working to re-create the first installment of Tolkien's classic Lord of the Rings trilogy in AoM. In this long-awaited campaign, the player follows the adventures of the nine members of the Fellowship in their quest to destroy the One Ring. The scenarios are made to the highest quality by some of the best designers in the community, and will lead the player from the sweeping rural hills of the Shire to the deepest depths of Moria to the wooded ruins of Amon Hen. Complex map design and amazing eye candy will keep gamers coming back simply to watch the brilliantly created cinematics. Even more fantastic is the completely original soundtrack created by a true genius at his craft. From Rivendell to Mordor, Legends of the Third Age: The Fellowship of the Ring brings Middle-Earth alive like never before.

Aside from the excellent scenarios, The Fellowship of the Ring boasts what may be the largest and most expansive modpack in Age of Mythology history. Each weapon is authentic, and gamers will feel the fires of the Balrog and hear the crack of Gimli's axe. Each face of each hero is authentic and detailed, as is every structure in the many exotic Middle-Earth locales. The mods were made by legends in the Age of Mythology community, and the quality does show.

The Fellowship of the Ring has features such as:

- The world of J.R.R tolkein created in AoM for the first time! - 13 beautiful maps, pain-stakingly made to the finest quality by some of the best Age of Mythology mappers out there. - The largest and most detailed modpack ever created in AoM! - Original and never before seen game play. - Extensive and professional sound track.

[Note: Make sure to read the IMPORTANT notes below.]

- Installing Legends of the Third Age: The Fellowship of the Ring is relatively simple:
- Double-click the installer, autoextract.exe.
- When prompted, chose your AoM directory. It should be C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Age of Mythology\
- If it asks to overwrite any files, be sure to make a backup of them before allowing it, with the exception of:
-- xpacklanguage.dll - if you have not already modified this file (or installed a mod that did so), you can leave it alone. We provide a copy of the original, labelled xpacklanguage-original.dll should you need it. If you are unsure, save a backup.
- There should not be any other collisions in filenames unless if you already have installed a mod using the Bar Loading Mod. In which case, save a copy of your barlist.txt file.
- If you are one who dislikes auto-installers, choose a blank folder and manually move the files into the AoM directory.


- TO PLAY YOU MUST USE THE "lta.exe" (NOT the normal aomx.exe). LOCATED IN C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Age of Mythology\

- You MUST copy and paste the "scenario" folder to your "My Documents\My Games\Age of Mythology" directory in order to play the scenarios. 

- To play the campaign you can launch it from the campaign menu by selecting "Fellowship of the Ring" from the scroll list at the top left of the campaign menu.

- The normal aomx.exe will run with the modpack off, so that there will be no OOS errors when playing online.

- Also, included is a scenario, "FotR_Mod_Install_Test.scx" which is designed to test if you have installed the modpack correctly. Load the scenario up and read the objectives. Make sure to do this before starting the campaign, otherwise you may be missing vital music, sounds, models, amongst other components.

- Before running, make sure you do not have any of the following files. If you do, back them up first.
