The game is based on turn-based gameplay. During every turn a special event will happen that will provide some bonuses or penalties. What the special event will be is determined by RNG. Here is a
Free Move: You get one extra command point that you can use anywhere you want. This is the most common special event to happen.
Onslaught: Units will get +2 attack and +2 move on one of the three flanks for a turn.
Rally: One of your flanks will get double the amount of the maximum leadership of the hero on that flank. So to take Aragorn: if Rally happens on his flank you will get (4x2= ) 8 command points for that turn. Easily the most useful special event.
Recovery: All units on one flank recover 1-4 HP.
Disorder: The flank gets 0 command points, regardless of the hero. This is the only special event that has a penalty. Getting this special event, especially on pivotal moments, is extremely frustrating.

The Lord of the Rings, the Third Age for the Game Boy Advance is a turn-based strategy game with roleplaying elements in which you have to use your army to fulfill certain goals. Those goals can veer between killing specific units, reaching certain destinations in the many levels (usually shown in the level with a flag) or defending your positions for a specific amount of turns. An example of a goal that appears in many levels is killing enemy heroes. You get two points for killing a hero and you usually need between ten to fifteen points to win the level.
Heroes are the stronger units that give command points. Command points (or CP) are the points that allow you to move units and attack enemy units. Every hero has a certain amount of command points. For example: Aragorn has a Leadership of 1-4, meaning that every turn the flank Aragorn is on gets either one, two, three or four command points. The amount you get is based on a random number generator or RNG. Th

Through ideals disconnected too much
By cruelty and kindness unchecked
The innocent lives that we touch
In our desire to see knowledge expand
Diseases rooted out by examination
So enlightened minds may withstand
Saving us from barbaric predation
Yet hands are blooded by the fanatic
Clinging to cruel gods through their plea
Spouting propoganda to keep men static
Killing heathens who do not agree
In a world divided by vultures
Equality has many battles to win
Uniting those from different cultures
So that we may call ourselves kin
But some words spoken are only hollow
People who care only for prosperity
Innocents are forced to swallow
Lies created to ignite polarity
In this world filled with contradictions
On the cealing hanging swords of Damocles
Heads of the hydra destroyed by conviction
Spawn mere strife among our families
Hercules and Achilles may fight plenty
Yet are they destined to fall?
As Pandora's box is not yet empty
Will Balance never learn to c
