This is one of many of the maps I have worked on for the Wars Of Arda Mod that can visited at http://www.Valarian.org.

__About the Map__ Very Well Balanced map that bottle necks land forces to one spot causing stalemate between the attackers/defenders. The only real approach to attacking the city is by using the attackers navy to first defeat the enemy fleet then landing forces in the harbors. I also have reflections on in this map to make it more bueatiful and have placed the proper audio objects . To my suprise this map runs really smooth since I tried keeping the number of objects to a minimum to maximize the playability.

__The Location/History Of Dol Amroth__

In J. R. R. Tolkien's legendarium, Dol Amroth is a fictional place being a princedom which forms part of the kingdom of Gondor.

The first Lord of Dol Amroth was Galador, son of Imrazôr the Númenórean. Imrazôr was himself the son of Adrahil I, Prince of Dor-En-Ernil. At some point Imrazôr moved to the area where once was the elven haven of Edhellond. According to tradition, there he married Mithrellas, a Silvan Elf of Lórien who had accompanied Nimrodel, the beloved of Lothlórien's king Amroth, on her journey towards Edhellond, but had become lost along with her mistress sometime in the middle of the Third Age. Galador and his descendants therefore had claim to Elven blood. (This is one of the few unions of Men and Elves, which included Beren and Lúthien, Tuor and Idril, and the later wedding of Aragorn and Arwen.)

Mithrellas' fate is nowhere described, only that she eventually left Imrazôr after bearing him a son Galador and a daughter. After Imrazôr's death, Galador went on to found the city and later the princedom of Dol Amroth. He is counted as its first Lord. The specific date of its foundation is nowhere recounted.

The city of Dol Amroth was built south of Edhellond at the inlet of Cobas Haven in the Bay of Belfalas. In the north of the city was built the Sea-ward Tower of Tirith Aear.

The men of Dol Amroth are described as tall and proud, with sea-gray eyes and dark-haired. The men are also of high blood.

In the War of the Ring, the men of Dol Amroth, led by Prince Imrahil, supply the majority of Gondor's army, and are said to arrive in the city by seven hundreds.

The lands of Dol Amroth were also known as Dor-en-Ernil, or 'Lands of the Prince': initially this name was applied to the area of Belfalas where Adrahil I and Imrazôr lived, but after Galador it was also applied to the area of Dol Amroth itself.

An amazingly crafted map and very fun to play around with, making it a definite download.
