Beta 0.2 News and the next Faction

theadbar.png
After giving it some thought I've decided to skip Beta 0.18 and jump right to Beta 0.2 which is more or less ready and is being uploaded.
Due to my circumstances it will take a few days to get the Beta up and running since I have to upload it piece meal.


I've done pretty much everything I had set out to do with Beta 0.2 and the faction is mostly complete in about the same stage as Dunland was with 1.55 with only minor fixes to go.

So the next faction will be The Strongholds.
Not exactly shocking I know, but currently it is the evil faction most complete and I want to try and keep to the good-evil-good-evil pattern of faction releases.

So as I mentioned in the announcement news for Strongholds the faction is the combination of the Deep and Dol Guldur factions.
I showed a couple preview images a couple days ago to whet your whistles.
Now I guess I'll reveal the tech tree.
