The Dawnless Days: Total War is being created by a collective of motivated individuals that are willing to learn, are loyal to the mod's development and share a passion for Tolkien’s inspiring franchise with the final goal of creating a custom "Lord of the Rings" campaign, set in the immense world of Middle Earth. While it was more difficult than ever to take up this long quest, we are growing stronger with every release. Besides units, which are the hearts and souls of Total War, we are also actively designing custom battlefield and settlement maps (land and siege battles); Gondorian settlement development - using custom Gondorian architecture - has already made an exceptionally promising start, and we continue to produce Gondorian settlement maps to compliment the completed Gondorian faction. As well as the basic necessities of the Total War overhaul, we also plan to include custom creatures such as trolls, wargs and mûmakil - and all will have custom animations made by us.

Currently, due to the early stage of development, The Dawnless Days focuses on the multiplayer aspects of Total War; with a campaign being a work in progress, we look forward to offering you more. Although a campaign is very possible, we are unable to do it with the provided modding tools. A custom tool is being designed by a small team of individuals that will allow us to construct an accurate map of Middle Earth, and we hope to have a functional campaign very soon. In light of this, much of the team's time is dedicated to 3D design and level design - examples of which you can see in our media above.
