The Lord of the Rings: The Third Age is a roleplaying game released in 2004. Unlike previous Lord of the Rings games it uses turn based battle sequences.


The Lord of the Rings: The Third Age is focused on the Captain of the Citadel Guard of Gondor, Berethor. He is travelling to seek Borormir, one of the members of the Fellowship of the Ring however, on his journey he is attacked by Ringwraiths and left to die. He is saved by a female elf named Idrial. They later share a vision of Gandalf the Grey telling them Borormir is heading in the direction of Moria.

Berethor travels to Moria in an attempt to seek out Boromir and along his way meets a Dúnedain Ranger named Elegost and a dwarf named Hadhod. With his new companions, he later finds out about Boromirs death at the hands of the Uruk-hai and his task changes to protecting the remanining members of the Fellowship.

As they journey through Moria they are faced against the Balrog and, along with the help of Gandalf the Grey, slay him. They continue through Rohan where they meet Morwen and Éoaden, a member of Théoden's Royal Guard. With the help of the two newcomers, they reach Helms Deep and and provide help to Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli.

The next destination is Osgiliath where the group fight off the Ringwraiths before journeying to fend off the Minas Tirith attackers. Their final task is to help Éowyn on the Pelennor Fields defeat the Witch-king.
