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.

True, true,
But I would love to see someone sue me anyway, if they're lucky they'd get about $1000 :xd:
But in the end, I see a mod for the players, not for myself :p
They enjoy playing it, not me ;)

Well, here it is:
My hosting request for a forum.
First I'd like to say that I think that my mod would be good to get hosted because:
-I am a devoted modder
-I have 5 team members altogether
-And my team is quite experienced as am I

This mod will be editing the original factions and making them all Unique in their own way.
Also certain things such as the CaH system, the Inn sytstem and the Creep System.
The original thread with the Tech-Trees can be found here:
From Book to Game Thread
Incase you want a banner, then they'll be located here:

Here is a few pics of the progress so far:

Binding seems pretty simple with Rob's amazing guide :p
Making scratch models, I haven't learned about yet.
But it's quite fun when you get into it :)
