#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.

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

#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.

#1064258 Age of the Ring 1.1 Hotfix Released

You can - the button is just in the builder's commandset (Palantir) rather than on the right-hand side of the screen. It's because we ran out of button space on the right.
