#1082558 Dol Guldur Faction Plan [WIP]

Posted by Mathijs on 25 April 2018 - 08:17 AM

I appreciate the effort put into this post, but I must tell you that we will not be using Hobbit designs for the Dol Guldur orcs, nor for the Nazgul. I'm tired of copying other people's designs and would rather design them myself. My Dol Guldur orcs will not look like heavily armored Uruk-hai, but like thin, ghastly scavengers under the corrupting influence of the Necromancer, wearing bone and hide armor and carrying bone weapons.


I might make an exception for Krimpûl - the original Bolg design from The Hobbit was neat and there's a lot of concept art of the creation process available, so he might get based on those.


As to the book, I have it too.  ;)

#1082035 Saruman becoming the Ring hero and Gokhar - The Hand of Saruman

Posted by Mathijs on 14 April 2018 - 09:19 PM

It's not a bad hero concept, but as saruman_the_wise said above, removing Saruman from the core roster is an impossibility. He is too iconic and important.


I recently updated Isengard's faction plan to include a version of Saruman as the Isengard Ring hero. It's likely we'll do this at some point. The player would be able to deliver the Ring to Saruman rather than the Fortress, which would trigger the original Saruman to change into Saruman of Many Colours.

Some useful things in there... how would we go about downloading them? I'm not familiar with Soundcloud and in my quick looking I didn't see a download option.

I hope you didn't spend your own time extracting those sound files, because this will never, ever, ever, ever happen.

They'll be Men.


@Vidstige: Sadly the portrait will likely need changing to fit the new model he'll receive.

#1064541 Lothlórien Faction Plan

They are, although the lore is different here. In AotR, Amroth's Knights are the remnant of King Amroth's (the last king of Lothlórien who drowned off the coast of Edhellond) household guard. They're mounted Sindarin nobles, a reference to the mounted Athenian nobles (hippeis) of Ancient Greece.

He's recruited from the fortress and cannot attack, hence why he has his own leveling system. It's very similar to what The Dwarf Holds did, if you want to take a look.
