Thanks for the video. It pretty much made my day; also thanks to Yoda and Mike for forcing me to watch it before playing a match :p

I still can't dance, though.

Will the easter egg just have lots of people with Bombadil's anims, or will the screen start flashing neon colors, too? :p

Well, it could include some sort of Darkness-like global spell that gives every unit and building a leadership that changes their color to red or green, like Lurtz' Carnage does :p With the map itself dark and all objects neon-bright, there'd be some real disco flair :p

Build me an army worthy of Mordor!

That would be a very interesting easter egg when applied to some of the map-wide buff/debuff spell book powers...


Imagine, it's starts out as Cloudbreak, then, with one button press, all of a sudden, it gets dark, and colourful lights are flashing every where.

Hehe, I just might do something like this for Tom :p I can just imagine the "What the....." factor when the AI casts it on an unsuspecting player. If I had the time I'd bind as many units as I could to Tom's skeleton. Just image your in a huge battle, it goes dark, the buildings all change color, the music starts, and Aragorn, the Nazguls, all your units start dancing around as they fight.....

As for the easter eggs:

Just have CaH turned on and you have to press the shortcut key. Please don't post where they are. Have the fun in easter eggs is finding them, and now you know what they are it shouldn't be too hard.

Truly an excellent easteregg and a really great video. ^^

That shows, that there definitely would have been much less bloodshed, if Tom had participated at the battle of the last alliance.

It was request by someone, so I added a higher quality video:

I would have uploaded it to revora, but I don't like consuming bandwidth if I can avoid it.

I was cackling out loud as I watched Sauron dance. To the Safety Dance no less. With Tom Bombadil. Genius. A work of art. That was...amazing. You're the man, Rob XD

'The Twilight of Man is nigh, and coming ever closer. The days have shortened into cold, forlorn darkness and sunrise to sundown is a bitter struggle for survival. But do not think for a moment that we shall not fight. We shall not go quietly into the dusk. We shall not throw down arms and flee, or surrender. We will go on, we will not falter. And even should we die, we shall make an end that will be remembered for thousands of years. For beautiful Arnor that is, for glorious Númenor that was! We are the Dúnedain, we are the Men of the North, and our foes will remember our steel!'

Works fine for me too now. Check the ModDB front page, and you'll see that apparently the entire site was having problems streaming, which they have now fixed. :p

*goes to watch it again*
