The staff have decided to start a new feature aimed to bring you an update which will be regular in nature, versatile and hopefully cool :lol:. Every Sunday we'll put up a new Sneak Peek, which could feature anything from animations to renders to power lists. Enjoy!

It is something a bit different this time. Ever wondered what our mappers have been doing the last 10-11 months? Since I joined, RA has gone from 0 new maps to a lot more. And here is the list of all the finished ones. And there's still more to come!

An odd mix this week... Firstly, the Dol Amroth Barracks, which I gather hasn't been shown in any screens or updates yet. A joint collaboration between Matias, Nertea and Dain.
Secondly, the Pass of Caradhras, a three player map made by me. It also has one outpost, one minifaction plot and six economy posts.

I really don't do requests and my Arnor Soldier is not fit for BFME. Don't ask me for either.

Firstly, the vineyards of Dorwinion. A beautiful land on near the Sea of Rhun.

...The Journey doesn't end here; death is just another path, one that we all must take. The grey rain curtain of this world rolls back, and all turns to silver glass. And then you see it. White shores...and beyond. A far green country, under a swift sunrise...

...Many folk like to know beforehand what is to be set on the table; but those who have laboured to prepare the feast like to keep their secret; for wonder makes the words of praise louder...

...Stand, Men of the West! Stand and wait! This is the hour of doom... ~ Gandalf the White, The Return of the King

i think there's one word left in this topic: WOW!

"The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides
By the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.
Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will,
Shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness,
For he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children.
And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger
Those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers.
And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you."

Wooow, and amazing work, congratulations. I'm looking forward the next sunday.
There will be a day when the sun will rise crying for the dawn
Then, all of them will be opened
The first one will be the continence of a warning
The second one, the flames of the war
The third one, the end.

Arribarà un dia en el qual el sol de l'albada plorara el matí
a la fi les tres s'obriran
La primera serà la continència d'un avís
La segona les flames de la guerra
La tercera, la fi de tot.

QEL·LA IS ABOUT TO BEGIN-----------------------july 2007.

Excelent work. Will definetly add spice into the game. No need to use those boring, old animations that some modders use in their mods.
