MIRKWOOD

Age of the Ring

Rough write-up

 

Synopsis:

Mirkwood is a wild and dangerous faction based around stealth and ambushes. Basic Mirkwood units, while more numerous than Rivendell and Lorien units, have very low armor and will struggle early game. The player will need to make use of Mirkwood's extensive roster of buff/debuff spells to tip the scales of each confrontation. Mirkwood has access to elite units that are expensive and take up high amounts of CP.

I like the description at the start explaining the play style and general theme of the faction. It'd be nice to have something like that on all the faction plans.

 

Great write-up though! I'm continually astounded by the sheer quality of your work. I can't wait to see what else you have in store!

It seems a very exciting and dangerous faction. With the beorning berserkers, the woodsmen, but the White stag is the real eye catcher i am very curious about it. I also like the fact that Radagast is included as a hero, his powers got me very excited.

Talking about Feren again, i have a few suggestions for his abilities:

 

Rank 1: Toggle sword/bow

 

Rank 3: Horn of the Guard: gives a temporarily small boost to the guards armor and attack (25 % each)

 

Rank 8: The King's guard/Guard of the king: Feren equips his armor (50% armor)

 

So far my suggestions for him, I hope people will read this and give their opinion about it.

Because there is not so much known about Feren I would suggest to design him as Leader of the kings guard and also one of the highest commanders in Thranduils army.

So I would like to see him manly in his armor: https://s-media-cach...205225b0c11.jpg

 

In point of his abilities, I would also give him the ability to blow the horn nearby an allied building. So it's an active ability which has to be used on a building. If this building was a recruiting building the recruiting times are reduced an all nearby troops get a speed boost for some time (they don't need to be nearby the building any more.

 

So this ability has a lot of ways to be used. You can use it to defend (faster recruiting and faster troops) or you can use it to get fast from your side of the map to the enemy and can surprise him (so exactly like in the movie). Also the ability fits exactly to mirkwoods aggressive and mobile character and to Ferens function as the one who orders the troops to be at the right moment at the right place.

 

I know it's just one ability but I think it was worth it to be posted ^^.

I'm a big fan of multi-purpose abilities. Good idea.

Woodsmen axes and beorning berserkers seems interesting, how good will they be compared to other elite infantry (stats)?

Beorning berserkers will be similar to Isengard berserkers but a lot tougher. Woodsmen axes are not something I've thought about much yet.

I have an idea for a spellbook power.

Origin in lore:
When Thorin and company are traveling through the Old Forest Road, they are drawn to what they perceive as a feast in the distance. As they come closer, the feast vanishes and reappears further away. It goes on like this till eventually they get lost and captured. It is not completely clear whether the forest  was playing tricks on them or the elves just wanted to be left alone, but the consequence was them being drawn deeper and deeper into the woods, further and further from the road.

How the power would work:
"A Feast in the Forest"
Set a large area of effect anywhere on the map and enemy units in it (limited to an X number of battalions) will be compelled to move to its center, where the fake feast would appear for a few seconds.

I like this idea of a power that draws units towards an area, not unlike the fell winds power of The Misty Mountains but without the blast or damage. It should certainly be large, and should last a while I believe.
