Well, I'd like to avoid using Elven Allies, as they weren't on the friendliest of terms, and so I doubt that they'd send aid to the Dwarves of Erebor.
As for Rhovanion Alliance...what do you mean by it?

an alliance between the dwarves of Erebor (who definately live in Rhovanion) and the elves of Mirkwood (who also live in rhovanion) would be called the Rhovanion Alliance :unsure:

that's what i mean

-UNDECIDED.
~Summon Elven Allies?

The Rhovanion Alliance would go out on Erebor, Laketown\Dale and Mirkwood, I think... Atleast, that's what RA told me :crazed:
or something...

It looks a bit ape-like, you should check the arm proportions. I would also recommend reducing the square aspect of the legs by strategic movement of vertices.

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

Instead of "summon elven allies"or "rhovanian alliance" how about the spell "United Clans"-summons three battalions of dwarven archers or elves(if you wanted)

If may be so bold as to point out, a mausoleam is a building that extends underground where dead people are burried(as opposed to live people, lol).

I think the summon power should bring in a mix of the Elves of Mirkwood and Men of Dale and Laketown. They worked out a lot of their issues after the Battle of Five Armies, so they are probably on better terms, especially since Thranduil was given a hoard of his favourite gems as part of the treasure(Emeralds of Girion).

Myself? :p Joking..
We probably should decide something about that..for the time being, I'll remove that bit from the Tech Tree.
@CNCM- I know what a mauseleam is, just used it incorrectly there. I was trying to think of something better than 'siege works', so...yeah.
