Well, everybody though that this mod was 100% dead but it wasn't. I've been doing some stuff those last days, as I'll show you here.

I've started with the dwarves. I wanted an original idea for them, in fact, I want different ways to play for all factions in the mod, so I made a new system for the dwarves.
My idea is: They won't have buildings, you'll start with a "mountain" as fortress that you'll improve, building upgrades that will improve the fortress such walls, towers, rooms etc.
Of course, the towers will shoot to the enemies, the walls will make you able to put units on them, and the rooms will make you able to build new units.
I made that because I think that the dwarves should be a faction centred on attacking and not on defending or resources (I'm still thinking how will they get them, perhaps the fortress will be able to be upgraded to make more resources... I don't know yet.)

Also, I the minifactions will be a separate building from the citadel. Anyway, those will be connected as tunnels, so your units will be able to go through it.

Well, that's all. Let me show you ONE screen, only one yet. I'll show you more.
In this picture, the mountain fortress is upgraded with the walls (that's everything I made so far)
Also, there are some belegost soldiers there. They can be upgraded with a lot of things.

Very unique idea. I'm glad to see more work done on the four ages. It still is one of my favorite mods, and I'm incredibly happy to see more work :good:

Can't wait to see how the dwarves are developed.

it's... alive.... ALIIIIIVE!

Nice to see some progress again, very original idea!
It has been reported that some victims of rape, during the act, would retreat into a fantasy world from which they could not WAKE UP. In this catatonic state, the victim lived in a world just like their normal one, except they weren't being raped. The only way that they realized they needed to WAKE UP was a note they found in their fantasy world. It would tell them about their condition, and tell them to WAKE UP. Even then, it would often take months until they were ready to discard their fantasy world and PLEASE WAKE UP

This topic is from a month and a half ago, and my guess is that it is actually dead.

I wouldn't count on it. Morgoth946 is just not making much of a public appearance is all. :shiftee:

It could mean his internet is down, eg. expansions doesnt have many public updates or Lauri's fourth age mod his internet was down.
