I'm afraid you do.

"'Third Age - Total War' is a total conversion modification for 'Medieval II: Total War - Kingdoms Expansion' that brings you into the world of Middle-Earth."

Well if you don't own Medieval 2 at all yet it is only $14 at amazon.com which isn't too bad. The expansion just by itself is only $11. So it wouldn't cost too much just for the Third Age mod. And there is also a ton more mods (I haven't tried any other one out yet though) that are probably worth it.

Kingdoms is really worth the $20 you pay for it now. It adds tons of content AND you can install The Third Age which is a game within itself.

£5 on steam but only works with steam Copies.

That should be even cheaper at some sites.

Dang dude, if only you made this thread like 2-3 weeks ago during Direct2Drive's spring sale... They had M2:TW Kingdoms for like $2.50...

really? that sucks, usually steam copies allow mods if the retail copies do.

I bought kingdoms solely for the mods, haven't even played the included expansion campaigns, just Third Age and Westeros: total war

Heh, I bought Medieval 2 (gold pack) just to play, but I have yet to actually play the vanilla game. Only mods that are total conversion (meaning essentially a new game, not just the vanilla with fixes or alterations). Also nice Xbox Live gamer picture. Isn't it either from Oblivion or Too Human? I can never remember which... or even if it is really one of those two games...

You can get it to work with mods, but you may have to edit the registry.

Someone also made a Steam mod installer for the game. You can find it here:

I haven't tried it, but it looks promising.

If you end up not getting the expansion you can always try the Stainless Steel mod. which is basically a bigger map, way more factions, and a basically a more epic version of the original game.
