Nice mod. I hope u will port it to 1.05 :p
One question. Isildur is summonable or normal hero?? Because he died in 2nd (or 1st?? ;) ) age. So he shouldnt (in my opinion) be buildable in fortress

Can't say I understand why Alatar and Pallando are on separate teams (on opposite ends of the good/evil spectrum, for that matter), but I digress... It's your mod and you know what you're doing with it.

Screenshots are showing some very good work. Keep it up!

Looks very nice. Keep up the splendid work! ;)

I'm not sure. Someone mentioned that he died in the 2nd age. But I didn't know if it was true...

There was only one Wulf ever named, and he usurped the throne of Rohan during the Long Winter.

Anyway, this mod continues to look promising ;)

Hopefully most of you have also noticed that Draugluin the Werewolf is also in this mod (he died during the 1st age). I wanted to have Isildur because there was already a model and some pics of him in the game... And according to the movies (Two Towers EE) there was a Wildman leader called Wulf (however his name's not mentioned in the movie).

Anyway, here are the new Ringheroes:

DWARVES:
King of the Dead

GOBLINS:
Gurthur the Balrog

ISENGARD:
Black Eagle

As you can see, there are two names in the list that aren't created by Tolkien. Gurthur is a Balrog hero with some new powers, and the Black Eagle is basicly an evil eagle (I wanted to make a new flying unit, so I made him). And King of the Dead was in the first version of this mod, but in the 2nd he's far more powerful.

Not sure i like the idea of the black eagle.

Talking about the TTEE part where the guy cuts his hand in front of saruman?

If people don't like the Black Eagle, I can leave him out from the public release of this mod... so don't worry!

And yeah Wulf is the guy who hits his hand in front of Saruman.

Black Eagle? Of course you must have him in! :)

He sounds cool! That may be because I always like the dark side! :lol: in fantasy that is.... real life, they suck!

:lol: Lauri, I sometimes find it incredibly hard to understand you...

As far as the Dark Eagle goes, if you want total realism, kick him out. But as you are making a mod on the Blue Wizards, of which we know almost nothing about, go ahead and leave him in! Its a nice original Idea :thumbsup:

Im not sure im right here but wasn't he a beoring and he and galdalf met somewhere in the books. My tolkin lore is a bit rusty and needs refreshing since i havn't read any of his books for a while. :lol: :p

If He is he should also have a sort of healing herb besides athleths.
