Im afraid the end of the line has come for me. I am retiring from modding. I have not been modding for the past month for varius flue, pc errors and modding break issues. But now thats all over, my intrest in modding and tolkiens world has gone.

I am looking for anyone intrested in taking the mod over. I would give them all the work ive done on bog, contributions not yet released and hand over the website and forums over to them. The only condition being that my name is kept in the credits ^_^. If you intrested email me and we can talk.

I would hate to think bog wont be finnished after it collected hundreds of fans, who wanted to see the final version.

Thanks to all those who contributed to BOG and showed their support :p

Anyway, i have released the last non public beta, which contains the latest and will be my final release.

Download here.

Here is the readme, ( the fixes are whats been fixed since the last none public beta).

place the bog.big in the "C:\Documents and Settings\Tom\Application Data\My The Lord of the Rings, The Rise of the Witch-king Files" folder, and run the previous shortcut youve been using.

Haven't seen that much of your work, but I stopped by the BOG website a few weeks ago and was very impressed by it. It's a pity you have lost interest, but this is for fun, it shouldn't be a chore. Good luck with the rest of your life

So long mate, sad to see you go... Another of the old veterans, passing into the sky. You were no doubt the most popular modder outside of T3A, I would like to congratulate you on your very succesful modding career. Once again, sad to see you leaving,

I know little of you. But i have heard so much about you from JEV3, YodaWarrior, D_Bershevits, and El Kevo. You wouldn't give the mod to me if I asked so I won't. Eve though I know what to do with is. I won't ask.

Discontinued, that's why it's in the Archived Mod's section :thumbsupsmiley: There were plans for the supporters of the mod to carry it on, but I don't know what ever happened with that.

I think Tom(Stealthsnake) wanted to give the mod to a modder that had alot of free time,by free time i mean that the modder would have no other projects.

Sad, t'was a great mod.

The old world will burn in the fires of industry! The forests will fall! A new order will rise...we will drive the machine of war with the sword and the spear and the iron fist of the Orc! We have only to remove those who oppose us...
