#1085606 Update on WOTR

I have some thoughts on the hero rosters you've got. What about this:

 

Gondor

 

- Faramir

- Boromir

- Imrahil

Recruit: Gandalf the White

 

Lórien

 

- Haldir

- Idrial

- Celeborn

Recruit: Galadriel

 

Erebor

 

- Balin

- Dwalin

- Bard

Recruit: Thorin Oakenshield

 

Mordor

 

- Mouth of Sauron

- Gothmog

- Khamul

Recruit: Witch-king of Angmar

 

Isengard

 

- Wulfgar

- Lurtz

- Wormtongue

Recruit: Saruman

 

Misty Mountains

 

- Muzgash

- The Great Goblin

- Urshak

Recruit: Azog the Defiler

 

Basically make the most powerful heroes available as recruited heroes, and removing Aragorn from Gondor's selection so he can be a big one in Rivendell, which would look like this:

 

- Aragorn

- Glorfindel

- Gildor

Recruit: Elrond

#1085434 The Battle for Middle-Earth meets a brand new, powerful game engine - Unreal...

Posted by Mathijs on 25 June 2018 - 06:34 AM

How about the following arrangement:

 

We give you permission to use the HD Edition assets that you have already used.

 

In exchange, you give us full credit for those assets in your Readme or when you post them in public ('The following assets were made by the HD Edition team: *insert list of assets here*, find them at https://www.moddb.co...-2-hd-edition).You'll also not use more HD Edition assets or Age of the Ring assets in the future without asking us first (and accepting the outcome should we say no).

 

What do you think?

Indeed. Please don’t use our art (HD Editions, Shadow and Flame, and Age of the Ring) in this project.

That doesn’t mean it’s safe from legal scrutiny.


#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.

#1076865 The Age of the Ring Lore Compendium

Posted by Mathijs on 02 February 2018 - 12:41 AM

Because we're coming up with a variety of new characters, creatures, and locations, I thought it would be nice to create a little alphabetical compendium of all of the Age of the Ring-canon that we've come up with so far.

 

It's a work in progress and will be updated over time.

#1070821 Sound bites for AotR

Posted by Mathijs on 30 October 2017 - 12:57 AM

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.
