Hey,I have a siege idea for the goblins,you could put a balista(small) on top of a troll and have a goblin man it :) ,you could also change the name of the goblins from 'moria' to 'orcs of the north.'

But unrealistic and unnecessary since they already have Trolls and Mountain Giants, both are powerful and versatile monsters on the battlefield, not to mention, they weren't really known to use technology.

In the hobbit, it says that the goblins stole a LOT of ideas through cruelty, pretty much forcing prisoners to make them weapons, terrible weapons, I think it even includes explosives :w00t:

If they did I expect it would be something very basic like Corsair fire bombs or weak exploding arrows. Nothing special.

If they did attain higher levels of weaponry it would have to have come from the neighbouring elves, dwarves and men around the Misty Mountains, maybe enhanced levels of smithery and building work, but beyond that, I'm not so sure.

i know that you don't like doing powers, nazgul, but from what I've heard, golfimbul will only have one power - leadership. i think that heroes should really have more than one power. i know that "battle rage" or "carnage" is overused (ugluk and shagrat), so maybe another power that already has fx, like poisoned blade or stealing resources.

and another thing: in the original game, ea neglected the goblins a lot. this resulted in them having one less fortress upgrade than every other faction, which has still continued. i was thinking they could have something like scavenged materials, to reduce the cost of structures or unit upgrades. another idea is that the scavenged materials upgrade gives every structure building rubble, because i think right now all structures get building rubble at level 3. the only thing is i dont know what to add to the fortress when you get that upgrade... maybe the metal plating changes to a darker colour or something...

i also think that goblins dont have as many elite units as the other factions. perhaps the half-troll swordsmen from rotwk could make an appearance. i know you dont like the half-troll idea, but it was possible that they mated orcs and trolls to make larger orcs. or they could just be an elite unit called "goblin brutes" or something like that. elite units, but not as elite as the guardians of moria

finally, i think that the flags for the goblins should be changed. i dont see why they should raise a standard of a spider, especially if the faction is centred around moria. since they feared and (possibly) worshipped the balrog (the movie commentary said that they based goblin armor off of the balrog, hinting that the goblins worshipped it), i think that it should be a picture of the balrog's head, instead of a spider, or a dragon like their faction logo. if not, make the symbol be of a mountain or something, just not a spider smile.gif
