2) Quenta Silamrillion

Set in the First Age of Middle-earth, this division of From Book to Game follows the campaign of the fallen Vala, Melkor, in his quest for domination over Arda. There will, in later releases, be implemented an all-new 'War of the Ring' feature, with this mod's unique Arda 'Living World Map'.

3) Dunedain

The Dunedain mod shall focus on the Dunedain of the 3rd Age, no Arnor.

With their elite skills, the Dunedain can stealth and are very skilled with the bow.

This mod shall not be over-done or over-worked but it will only add this single faction for now.

Expect a BETA release soon!

4) The Hobbit


The recently introduced "The Hobbit" sub-mod will contain a brand new campaign based on the journey of the Hobbit called Bilbo Baggins. This campaign will be greatly inspired by the upcoming Hobbit Movies by Peter Jackson, which will be released in about 6 months from now. This means that work on the mod will also start when the movies are released. Stay tuned for this excellent new upcoming campaign, the team will enjoy making it.

I could be mistaken, but I believe you might have messed up the clickable image links. They only display part of what seems to be a bigger picture.

Ah yes, they are actually made like that.
How would I go about making images that have just the pictures and none of the extra background?
Because it's just white in the background to blend in with Revora's background :p

What I usually do is make thumbnails and make them clickable through html, and have them lead to a full render/screenshot.

Ha yes, I actually understand the mods now.
If you guys remember I gave you Nargothrond.which will I believe will fit nicely into Quenta Silmarillion. :)
I have been contacted, but I will reject a fourth mapping job, but I will change Nargothrond to your specifications if needed.
P.S. And help your mappers.
P.P.S. Great job guys (and girls if there is any?).

Here is Aragorn as one of the Dunedain along with the Chief of the Dunedain

If you're going with the Dunedain during or just before the War of the Ring, Aragorn was the Chieftain of the Dunedain. So you can't have Aragorn and a Chief of the Dunedain if you go with that time period.

There were 16 chiefs and some of them were chiefs at the same time. I will agree aragorn was the only one of his time. But I named the hero that to represent all the other 15 before him

So you're throwing timeframes together?

So people who were dead around the war of the ring will be featured?

It is not a necessity though, you have the rangers of the Gray Company that you could include as heroes, even though not each of them carries a name (which in the end, matters little).
