Additional content for the Champions of Middle-earth module will not be added to MEPBM Wiki for a full calendar year from its launch of 24 April 2020. This will give players more time to explore the new game world and mechanics.
The hour is late in the Third Age of Middle-earth.
For long years has the Dark Lord Sauron been forced to bide his time, working in darkness and shadow. But now his reach grows long, stretching like a shadow from the mountain fastness of Mordor. His Nazgûl stalk the night, evil stirs in the deep places, and called forth by his command, Goblins and Orcs spill like maggots from their tunnels and lairs.
But all hope is not yet lost for the Free Peoples of the land. The One Ring, in which Sauron bound his power and his malice, remains in the keeping of Frodo, safe, for now at least. And Gandalf, escaped from the treachery of Saruman, makes with all haste north to Imladris, which yet remains as a torch lit against the gathering dark. For Elves, Dwarves and Men all stand ready to battle the forces of Sauron, awaiting but a leader, and the call to arms.
The world stands upon the edge of a knife. And its fate will be decided by the Champions of Middle-earth.
We are pleased to announce the release of our brand-new module, Champions of Middle-earth!
Set during the events of The Lord of the Rings, Champions of Middle-earth is a two player game, and is very different to our other modules.
Each player starts with only a ‘micro nation’, consisting of two characters and a handful of population centres. From this starting point, they must seek out and recruit powerful Champion characters with which to build their nations. These come with a variety of benefits, including population centres, armies, artifacts, special nation abilities, and even other characters.
Through the choice of characters you recruit, you can decide what kind of nation to build, be it military, magic or agent-based. But you will only be able to recruit some of the many characters available, so choose wisely!
