“The enemy? His sense of duty was no less than yours, I deem. You wonder what his name is, where he came from. And if he was really evil at heart. What lies or threats led him on this long march from home. If he would not rather have stayed there in peace. War will make corpses of us all.” ― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings

Greetings fellow Edainers
Today it's all about the menacing Dol Guldur!

I've tried to make Dol Guldur more interesting to play by somewhat reinforcing its defenses in a unique way; in the vanilla, Dol Guldur was one of those fortress that after playing MinasTirith, MinasMorgul, Erebor,.. you would feel meh about it (all the defenses were basically a couple of catapults and weak walls that you can't rebuild,..). The fortress defenses are now focused on its sheer manpower (Orcpower for that matter :P ) and Khamul's dark presence.

The Easterlings Quarters:

Dol Guldur didn't only have Orcs weaklings. Khamul relied a lot on his fearsome Easterlings who bring from Rhun Soldiers, Spearmen, and their well known heavy cavalry.

The Prison:

None who's been imprisoned in Dol Guldur ever returned the same (even returned at all!).
Finally, the prison building is now actually a useful one were Khamul uses his dark magic to torture and mutilate his prisoners, and change them to something else entirely!

More to the defense:
The Citadel is now guarded by dedicated Castillans.

Some notes:

  • Although the wall defenses themselves aren't changed much, all walls and catapult hubs are now indestructible. The only way into the fortress is through the gates (seriously they're not that hard to destroy). The catapults themselves can be destroyed, but the defender will have the option to rebuild them.
  • Quite more build plots.
  • A couple of archer towers inside the fortress. The defender can't rebuild those.

There are a couple of build plots on both sides of the fortress, which are quite useless since they're very open to all kind of attacks. I was hoping to do something about them, but I've run out of energy for this map :|
Also I'm not 100% content with the units produced from the Prison.
What do you think? Any alternate suggestion? Maybe something from the Misty Mountains once they come out?

Any suggestion is very welcomed.

Do you think there will come a new Lord of the Rings movie in the future?

Well, not in the near future, that's for sure :/
However, I'm almost certain there will be some LOTR (or LOTR themed) movies eventually.
The biggest problem is with the Tolkiens not selling the license for the universe to anyone.
But I'm sure a time will come when someone will be able to do it.
Middle Earth is a HUGE universe, with the First and Second ages having tons of possibilities for story lines to movies or even a series (something like Game of Thrones). the story of the Noldor will make an epic TV series^^

I really hope that they will continue Lord Of The Rings, many more stories that must be told. But I think they should have told from the start about Arnor.

Yeah, the Arnor Vs Angmar conflict will make one hell of a story!

On the lord of the rings 1 movie start the final part of Arnor that goes right in the future where you see Frodo for the first time. So I think that they should have made a movie or a TV series that tells the beginning of Arnor and Angmar, it would have been incredibly fun to watch that type stuff.
