Goblins:
Gundabad
Misty Mountains

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

Arnor won't be in the mod, since it's about the late third age.

If you don't mind answering: What are the units for Dol Guldur?

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...

Goblins:
Gundabad
Misty Mountains
Moria

reguarding the goblin minifactions
I would replace misty mountains by goblin town

I thought there was a Northern Kingdom though.

as far as i know the most northern kingdom still in place by the end of third age is Dale
witch could be a really cool mini faction for dwarves

i dont think that transforming buldings is a good idea id rather make like per example 3 different builder you can recruit at the fortress
depending on the minifaction and then they build the buildings of their factions
wut would be even cooler is to have like one fortress with three big build spots that generates a partial minifaction fortress and then theese partial fortresses have build spots for conventionnal defences

k let me give an exemple lets take the men of the south
the main fotress is a big tent
than theres three circles
you select on one circle
now u have the choice to add on:
1- a haradrim tent that helps you summon harad heroes, gives a certain bonus (eg.: harad buildings near fortress builds faster and cost less), range of upgrades ( eg.:spikes or fog ) and 3 spots for defensives structures (eg.: a hunting post that feeds (heals) nearby troops or a simple tower)
2- an umbar trade market where u can summon umbar heroes, gives a certain bonus (eg.: boost on ressources from the forteress), range of upgrades ( eg.: lamps that widen the vision of the buildings) and 3 build spots for economic structures like markets that acumulates ressources or shipwrights that lowers the building time of boats.
3- i think you get it...

So let me get this straight, each faction will have the option of choosing different minifactions that will add new upgrades and units to the existing main faction. Correct?

yeah but all the same its a cool idea of yours but from what ive seen and herd minifactions will be purchased in the inns
6% of teenagers today are a bunch of informed NERDS, if you are one of the 94% who actually reads cheap magazines and a couple of schoolbooks, or anything besides the paper, copy and paste this into your signature.

90% of teens today would die if Myspace had a system failure and was completely destroyed. If you are one of the 10% that would be laughing, copy and paste this into your signature.

Can you have all of the minifactions, or just 1 per game?

And I agree, the inn is a good way to have the minifactions, it's a little different from other mods and gives it a little originality.

well i have an idea, what if there were levels of minifactions, so you have to buy one faction before you can buy the next, and the next is more powerful and more expensive for example:

Mordor: you captur the inn and purchase Dol Guldor, which costs say 8000, then you have the ability to buy minas morgul, which costs 10000 and then you can buy barad dur, which is 12000. Just a thought

Also does getting different minifactions decide which ring hero youy get because the dol guldor techway thing says

Ring hero
Necromant

just wondering

Except that it would be almost impossible to afford them :p

It shouldn't be tiered like that imo; They should be priced around 1500 and you should be able to buy them in any order you want, though maybe each time u buy a minifac, the others would cost more...
