Hey there!

It's been quite a while since our last update and the release of the 0.755 patch, which we hope you're all enjoying. But even though things have been fairly quiet here in terms of public updates, don't worry! The team has been hard at work on lots of exciting new things. So in this update, we thought we'd give you a little peek at what's been happening behind the scenes, and what you can expect from the Dwarf Holds over the next while.

For those of you who haven't guessed as much already, i'm pleased to announce that The Dwarf Holds is currently working on adding in two brand new campaigns. Those of you who were savvy enough (or illiterate enough :p) to venture past the "Unavailable" buttons in the mod's campaign section may have even caught a glimpse of the beginnings of a new Living World Map. Well, see below for the nearly-finished result.

Now we don't want to give away too many details, but we can tell you that there will be two Dwarven campaigns. One will follow the story of Balin, and his ill-fated Retaking of Moria. The other will take you through the War in the North, and the Dwarven battles that took place during the War of the Ring.


Each campaign will contain plenty of new maps, new units, and new spellbook powers for you to experience; and we've made sure to include a unique and interesting variety of campaign missions and map objectives for you to play through.


As i said, we wouldn't want to ruin the surprises by showing you too much of the different campaign missions, so updates will probably be fairly scarce from now on. However, we'll certainly try and give you small glimpses when we can, so here's a little sneak peek at the first mission of the Moria campaign, The Eastgate.

And that's all for this update!

I hadn't seen that incredible skyline for the Eastgate map. This all is unprecedented.

Oh that sunset along the mountain side on the 2nd pic just gorgeous. I also like the texturing on the east-gate, nice and dark green with rock.

So you guys are making the inside of Kazad-dum! It will be an epic of epic epicness no doubt.

Will you wait for the Hobbit to come out for some bits of it, to see how these lands look in the film?

Not exactly the plan, but I wouldn't be surprised if some of the things will feature ;)

But most of what you suggest is probably in the 2nd film, due December 2013, so it's a long time to wait..

Far as I know, there weren't any Dwarven battles in Mirkwood during the War of the Ring ;)

I wouldn't want the art direction to suddenly change due to those films, personally. It wouldn't look good.

Good work!!! But you said new units and spell? If new units goblin spearmen and half troll or great moria orc add in Moria campaigns. Or war boss giants squrid? shall add units for old faction exemple dismounted dol amroth or harad ridder or dwarf crossbow or guard of isengard? Return Gondor soldiar? New spell one giants bear (The Hobbit)?
Hope you have good! :)
