Well, your dream might just have come true.

There's a new AoW3 map available that let's you play as a Hobbit in Middle Earth.

Or, if you fancy being the witch king of angmar and slaughtering hundreds of hobbits instead, you can do that, too.

An XL Lord of the Rings map, with 8 playable factions, and several lesser factions. Playable Factions: Gondor, Rohan, Hobbits, High Elves, Mordor, Haradrim, Misty Mountain Goblins, and Gundabad Orcs.

Check out the download section:
http://aow2.heavengames.com/downloads/lister.php?category=scenarios
and look for a new scenario called Hobbits.

It needs the Golden Realms (Halfling) DLC.

Have fun!

Thank you.

I haven't tested this scenario yet but it would be done this month.

I've tested a little and... cannot converting other city peacefully is distrubing. The military way is the only option ?

Tested as Hobbits.

I was not excited about The Hobbit (#1), and I found it to be quite meandering and mediocre (but loved 48fps 3D). I am quite excited about The Hobbit (#2) for reasons I can't entirely explain. Anyone else feeling similarly?

I modded the map by myself and added a huge bunch of script events (mainly join events and strong improved the existing) groups and location descriptions (mainly mountains, woodlands, waters and regions) for the map view. I also added some more underground locations from the lore (Path of the Dead - Army of the Dead, Caverns of Isengard, Glittering Caves). I pimped few more locations.

I replaced the Nazgul hero with The Mouth of Sauron. Also the Rohan hero doesn't fit really with the lore (it was the servant of Saruman and never the servant of the real Theoden). Overall, you can improve a lot more in this map (there are also no real LotR extensions in the map). It was really fun to edit. The extended locations of the Hobbits really don't fit to the lore at all.

@Fantasy fun: I realized the Haradrim fit very well as Tigrans in the map. If simply converted (only eastern desert humans) to this they rule the map. Also the Witch King plays very well as necromancer.

If interested I can send you this map.
