Years ago, each of us, myself included, started working on the Rhovanion Alliance hoping that we'd never have to announce this. I can't really believe that I'm the one doing it... so here goes, in the words of Mark Antony:
"Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears, I come to bury this mod, not to praise it."
I am announcing that we are ceasing development of the Rhovanion Alliance, effective immediately. The team has come to the conclusion that there is no reasonable way to complete the mod. There is too much left to do, and not enough hands to do it. I don't have time anymore to work on this as much as I have in the past, and with cahik busy with postgraduate GIS work, we no longer have access to the best animator in the community. Dain has been busy with his important genetics coursework and doesn't have time to mod.
I know that a good deal of you will still want to get your hands on whatever we've finished so far. This isn't going to happen. The mod as it is is too far away from any state of stable release to just throw out there for you to play. You'd have far less fun with it than you'd think. However, we are considering working towards a limited release of some parts of the mod as soon as we possibly can.
Thanks for supporting us for all this time, and believe me when I say that we tried our best.
