Posted 08 June 2007 - 09:47 PM

Well I was wondering if the Return Of Angband Mod could by any chance get hosting on t3a? We had hosting on mevault which we still do, but we figure that t3a would give us more publicity.

Coder- SquallBK
Skinner-Lotrfan2
Modeller- Black_Serenade
Also looking for another skinning position.

Here is info on the mod (copied and pasted from our mod topic on bfme2 and rotwk forums)

new forums and website

first off, the website- http://returnofangba...evault.ign.com/

and the forums- http://returnofangba...phpbb/index.php

also, I am looking for a modelling team. I currently have a skinner(lotrfan2), coder(me lol) and a modeller (black_serenade), I would like to also have another skinner if that is a possibility. Anyone who contributes to the mod gets to come up with the ideas, no questions asked, besides complete conversions of our current idea lol.

The Return of Angband- A mod for Rotwk

The Storyline-

Welcome to the storyline page. First off I would like to say, the storyline to this mod is not completely within the likings of tolkien fans, so I figured I would give that warning, but here it is anyway. I will list in this page, The return of Angband, and the effects it had on the other Factions of middle-earth.

Angband- Gothmog, lord of the balrogs, after the destruction of the ring and death of Sauron's spirit, made the decision to revive Angband, after hearing word that his Lord Morgoth was still alive. Gothmog began reviving the power Angband once posessed, and with that power, Morgoth returned, and with the power of the Valar of whom he had obviously betrayed, revived his valuable lieutenant, Sauron.

The Valar- The Valar was happy to hear of Sauron's defeat and of Men being united under one banner. When they heard of Angband's revival, they did not want the age of peace that the lands of Middle-Earth had finally faced to be destroyed by the power of Angband. The Vala got on Elven Ships, and sailed to the shores of Middle-Earth, to assist in destroying this growing threat.

Men Of The West- when Aragorn, king of men had heard of Angband's return, he immediatley started preparing his armies for attack. Eomer, horse lord of Rohan, did not agree with Aragorn's tactics, but Aragorn continued on. Eomer broke off from the union of Men, and formed his own government to deal with the threat of Angband and Morgoth's armies. Arnor, hearing word of this, also broke off, with Arvudei as their leader. Thus civil war broke out in the Union of men, causing them to break into three branches, fighting civil war and angband at the same time. Gondor, Rohan, and Arnor.

Elves- during the war of the ring, the Elven race was diminishing from the lands of middle earth. When word had reached them that Angband was making a come back, they immediatley gathered their armies, and United to fight them. Glorfindel, Elrond, and Celeborn all gathered a great army of warriors from Lorien, Rivendell, and the Noldor in the lands of the Valar.

Dwarves- The dwarven race had never cared of the wars of men or of the departing of the Elves, but they did not want evil to rise in middle earth again, with them as slaves. The dwarves fought war alone, as they always have, against Angband. King Dain, however, did ask for aid from Men when Angband sieged Erebor, but received no reply as they contacted them at the unfortunate time that Men were breaking once again.

Isengard- When word reached Saruman of the revival of Angband, he did not seek to create Alliance with the dark lord as he once had before with Sauron, but instead he chose not to fight Angband but found it to be an advantage. The other factions would be low on resources with fighting Angband, so Saruman raised an army once again, and chose to crush the factions of Elves, Dwarves, and Men. When Isengard heard word of the valar coming to middle earth, this worried Saruman, so he looked to ally with the Men of the East, as they were neutral in this war, but found no reply.

Mordor- The forces of mordor were crushed after the destruction of their Lord Sauron, but when he was revived by Morgoth, they followed Sauron wherever he would go, and chose to unite with Angband under one banner.

Angmar- after the war of the ring, Angmar had also reformed, with the Witch King as their leader, but choose not to interfere with other factions until their power had reached its full potential once again. When Angband had returned, Angmar seeked an alliance, but because the Witch King did not follow his Lord Sauron, Morgoth saw that has a betrayal, and instead chose Angmar to be the first to be destroyed.

Goblins- Goblins, hearing of their intimidating leader, Gothmog, reviving Angband, chose to join him in his conquest. until this time, no one truly acknowledged the Goblin's full power.

I will also say in the game, Rohan, Arnor, and Gondor will be new factions of good, which will unbalance the faction number between good and evil, but I will say Angband is going to be quite overpowered.Also men of the west will still exist as a faction, these three factions are just being made to follow the storyline. Here is a list of the Individual effects of Angband's return on the three factions.

Gondor- Lord Aragorn led gondor alone now, with Gandalf the white as his advisor. Aragorn was more concerned with fighting Angband then he was reuniting his people. Aragorn and his Nation, Gondor, believed that to win the War of Evil against Angband, they had to raise a great army, and attack immediatley before Morgoth could get back the great power he once had.

Rohan- Lord Eomer led the Armies of Rohan, and balanced himself between reuniting his people and also fighting Angband at the same time. Eomer and his Nation, Rohan, believed to win the War of Evil against Angband, he had to fight, but at the same time attempt to reunite his people, because with the full potential of the men of the West, Morgoth could be defeated more quickly.

Arnor- Lord Arvudei led the armies of Arnor, and believed fully he needed to unite Gondor and Rohan once more, and dispatched only maybe three thousand Arnor soldiers to help fight the war of evil. Arvudei and his Nation, Arnor, believed to win the war of evil, the Men of the West had to once again be reunited, for if they were, they could lead both Elven and Dwarven races in fighting this war, and unite The three races of Men, Elves, and Dwarves under one banner to quickly destroy this threat.

If anyone has any suggestions feel free to message me (squallBK) on t3a forums or by email at squallrofl@hotmail.com

-Units- Reskinned Orcs, trolls, Goblins, and more when i get more info on Angband
-Heroes- Carcharoth, Sauron (obviously a different sauron than the ringhero, that would be overpowered)
Boldog, Gothmog the lord of the balrogs, Glaurung, Ulfang,
-Ring Hero- Morgoth

---------------------------------

-The Valar-

Not much added here, probably more will be added as the mod advances. Here are the ideas for this faction right now-

-Heroes: Aulë, Manwë, Ulmo, Oromë, Tulkas, Námo, Irmo, Nienna, Varda
-Ring Hero- Ilúvatar

-----------------------------

vanyar skin, done by Lotrfan2 (not yet fully finished, some modelling also has to be done)-
Posted Image

may not look different, but the hair is different color, and there is armor on the chest. That is why we need modelling eventually for the armor. lotrfan2 said that was the temporary solution. It is also reskinned from an existing ea skin.

Here are a couple models done by black_serenade, they are not yet skinned-
boldog(done by black_serenade and rudgey)-
Posted Image

ulfang(once again, not yet skinned)-

Posted Image
I may be wrong but I beleive black serenade also based this model off an existing model of ea's.

also here is the skinned model of boldog-

Posted Image

lotrfan2 also wanted me to say that the skin of boldog is a WIP.

The time available to me limits me to scrolling over this topic, but that alone gives me the impression you have a good chance at getting hosted.

It's put up at the team chamber now, where there is always a bit of discussion before a new hostee is accepted. With a bit of luck you'll soon get your answer. :thumbsupsmiley:

Not difficult. All you need is a decent mod and some motivation, not a "add 10000 command points and rename Gollum to Smeagol" made by somebody who's going to forget about it in a week :thumbsupsmiley:

nice job both lotrfan and black serenade. I obviously can't display much at this moment, but I have prepared a majority of INI files for future use. Now its just a matter of adding some buildings in the commandbutton.ini and commandset.ini. Plus I still need to make custom commandsets for a majority of units/heroes.
