Don't worry about any of that. Nazgul's got a mod subforum, he's not a T3A staffer or whatever. You're very welcome to contribute (that's coming from me, the actual T3A Lead Admin).

Actually I was totally kidding. I made this creature up.

No armory, upgrades will come from the caravan.

Well yes, haven't you read Unfinished Tales?

I think you can squeeze out some more. Go on, give it a try.

I understand where you're coming from. I know for sure that Suladan will not ever be renamed (for personal reasons) but Hasharin might at some point.

Thanks for your compliments. Regarding your objections: the bottom line is that this plan isn't attempting to be as lore-friendly as possible, or correspond particularly heavily to historical equivalents. I added elements of popular culture/other LotR-based franchises (like Games Workshop) into a fantasy mish-mash of 'things I liked', with a special focus on getting a little weird and out-of-bounds in terms of creatures and mythology.

Regarding the scorpions and Harondor raiders: the latter are not summoned by the Haradrim Warlord. Rather, they're a semi-elite cavalry unit recruited from the structure once it's ranked up. I may eventually decide to add another cavalry unit (though right now the Black Numenorean Vanguard also fills that role).

It won't be weaker, being that it's a final tier summon. Gondor summons a group of Eagles as one of their final tier summons, but Haradwaith summons the one Aicanaroc. It'll be larger and stronger. Consider it a Maia spirit, like the Balrog.

Haradwaith isn't particularly lore friendly. We took a lot of liberties to create something original. The faction will be the last one to be released, so quite a ways off still.

You may as well be talking to a wall. Fovqalade thinks that the more he asks/annoys us, the quicker a release will happen.

Bolg in our Misty Mountains faction is not the book lore character, but the movie side character. We don't think he needs to be a full hero. This is not going to change.

Minas Mongul? lol

Yeah, the city looks great. I wonder why they decided to come up with that ****** Gondorian armor design though.

Gimli will be part of one of Rohan's two final tier spellbook powers.

If we do them, they probably won't look like that. I don't like the literal interpretation of the line 'men *like* half-trolls*. Ours will likely be huge, strong men, more like The Mountain than the resulting offspring of a troll-human relationship.

The screenshot was just taken on a map featuring Rhûn map props. So there's no Easterling faction planned. Mordor does get an Easterling structure though from which they can recruit Variags, Easterling phalanxes, and Easterling archers.

The Haradwaith faction plan will be revealed at a later date. It's currently still being written.
