lol..
Anyway, back to the discussion. It'd probably be a good idea to design your Hobbit faction around what we know about them as fact:
PROS:
-numerous
-good shots
-sneaky/stealthy
-fierce in a pinch
CONS:
-short
-lazy
-slow-moving
-unadvanced
-no professional warriors
There you go, hopefully that'll give you guys something to work with.
On the subject of Dunedain allies...they should be just that - allies. They never had direct contact with the Hobbits of the Shire while they were protecting them, and if you include them, that should be reflected likewise as possibly a summon allies power, or maybe even a 'slaved' unit to certain buildings.
EDIT: Perhaps they could be both? You would sellect the power, "Guardians of the Shire" (?), and the area of effect circle would appear. You would then select where you wanted it to be active on the map ala Devestation or Elven Wood. When selected, a battalion or so of individual Dunedain would patrol the chosen area until slain.
Cheers,
-mike

IMO, short should go to PROS.... would help in the stealth and sneaky paramenter... :p
And I agree with the dunedain, as allies...
And you could summon 'ranger-lairs', which are placed somewhere on the map, and have guardians... It gets trees, and nothing else....
trees with rangers in it :spam:


oh, wait.. nonsense :mad2: I forgot..
I'll leave, and take my ideas with me... From this post, I have copyrighted everything from SotS, so you can't make anything that's in it! :p

It's not like you actually made anything.. so the effect on the modding community is ZILCH.

well, hobbits are small and they can probably be very good to 'block' incoming attacks...

Still, they should have some kinda upgrade... Or rely on huge leadership bonuses by their heroes...

edit: also, I think they should have a huge attack, but low armor, since they can probably get in close and atleast stab a bastard or two before going down... :wink_new:



no cursing just take your nonsense somewhere else please i wont allow this lanquage on my thread :ohmy:


thats pathetic if hes swearing i mean last time i looked lauri was a much higher position than you he has much more authority than you. shit wait did i just swear oops. Anyway i think the shire instead of getting upgrades can purchase instead motivation upgrades.

Smartdude used a smilie ( :ohmy: ), to indicate he was joking.

Anyway i think the shire instead of getting upgrades can purchase instead motivation upgrades.

Smartdude is no longer making this mod.
BTW. You meant locomotor upgrades I assume?

1. Don't judge others, leave the task of moderating up to those in a "much higher position than you": The moderators.
2. Don't get involved in what you think is an argument if the 'offended' party shows no sign of being offended.
3. Read topics in full before you reply.
4. If you were trying to be funny, stop trying.

He was being serious, as far as I could tell, but if he doesn't want swearing on his topic, I won't swear on his topic :ohmy: (even though bsartad isn't a real curseword)
