Divide and Conquer is a total conversion submod for Third Age Total War focusing on new factions, plenty of new units, numerous new events and depicting Middle-earth in a unique way. Play any one of 26 factions, from the Dúnedain of the North to the Haven of Umbar.


Factions and cultures

There are 26 playable factions in this submod that can generally be divided into two groups: The "good" factions and the "evil" factions. This is the morality axis Tolkien himself based his legendarium on and Divide and Conquer stays true to this. This does not mean that the player cannot choose who to ally with and who to fight, but there are certain limits, e.g. an alliance must first be broken via diplomacy. Wars between evil factions and more frequently between good ones are indeed not unheard of, either through AI choices or through scripts. Additionally the Clans of Enedwaith faction starts with neither allies nor enemies and can therefore choose sides freely.
