I suspect I should have done this earlier. Anyways, FAQ.

Q: Is the Rhovanion Alliance mod dead?
A: Yes, we have decided that the remaining work on the project is too much for the few remaining team members.

Q: Will you be releasing what you have done so far?
A: No, we will not. It is not in a fit state to be even slightly fun to play. Instead, we'll be concentrating on finishing the Dwarf faction as a standalone mod called The Dwarf Holds. Check out the announcement thread here

Q: What will The Dwarf Holds contain?
A: It will contain a fully functional and polished Dwarf faction based on our RA Dwarves. It will fit seamlessly into the four original factions.

Q: What's up with the weird Dwarf unit names?
A: Some names are in the Dwarven language of Khuzdul. Don't worry, we'll make each unit's type and function evident ingame.

Q: Will the Dwarf faction have AI?
A: We're not sure yet.

Q: Will there be any changes to the original factions (Gondor, Rohan, Isengard and Mordor)?
A: Using our RA models and skins, we plan on reskinning the original factions to the best of our ability. That will be all.

Q: Will the reskinning include adding any units to the original factions?
A: Not in the initial release.

Q: Will the RA maps be included in The Dwarf Holds?
A: Yes.

Q: What is happening to the minifactions for the Dwarves?
A: They have been merged with the main faction.

Q: What will happen to all the work on the other factions?
A: We are not sure yet, but I'm sure we'll find some way to make it useful.

Q: Will you put the old RA buildings and units into the mod so I can code them in myself?
A: No.

Q: Can I use some ex-Rhovanion Alliance models/skins?
A: We are not releasing any raw models or skins at this time.

Q: Will you merge The Elven Alliance with TDH at any point?
A: Nope.

Hope that answers most things.

You may want to change RA to the "dead" mod category on the main site and then make a new mod called The Dwarf Holds. May solve some of the confusion that is going on. ;)

Burk-Khazâd -> Burk(Axe) Khazad(Dwarf) so a Dwarven Axemen?
Rakhâs-udrig -> Rakhas(orcs) Udrig(Bane) so Orcs Bane?
Sigin-zigil -> zigil- spike Sigin- long so maybe Long Spikes? Some kind of Pikemen?
Tarâg-udrig -> Beards(Tarag) Beardsbane? Doesn't make sense...
Baraz-Khazâd -> Baraz(Red) Dwarves
Khazad-Uzbadu -> Dwarven Lord (Uzbad Khazad Dumu means Lord of Moria eh?)
Burk-Gabil -> Great (Gabil) Axemen? Or maybe
Khazâd-mahalu -> Aule Dwarves (mahalu= Aule)

Am I correct? (I hope at least 1 will be correct)


I'll just quote this earlier post, and not say anything more wink.gif


With this and the sneak peek page, I'm sure you can work it out ;)

No, you should merge T4A with TDH, and make a Erebor faction that's 200 years after the WotR! I've never seen anyone makes dwarves from that time!

Oh, wait..

I'm not sure, while it's not completely out of the question. It would come a lot later still, if there would be one.

It's not just making maps + scripts, which already cost some months, you need to think off a story line, and there is also a lot of coding stuff ;).
