From a Gandalf quote:

"Far, far below the deepest delving of the Dwarves, the world is gnawed by nameless things. Even Sauron knows them not. They are older than he. Now I have walked there, but I will bring no report to darken the light of day."

Nothing huge to report, but work on the Falathrim has begun and the map is almost done. I've been busy lately so I haven't had as much time as I would like to work on it, but it's slowly getting there. :)

First: yes, pretty much all modding is horribly frustrating, but rewarding when you get it right. ;)
Second: there aren't any programs that will do the job for you, though some member of the community have created tools to help modders along the way.
Third: If you're not put off by points 1 and 2, a good place to start would be the tutorials on Twcenter.net

Agreed. I'm sure the mod is excellent but I've been put off from downloading it more than once now due to the hosting sites. I'm not about to hand money over to Filesonic, can't use the torrent due to being on a University network which doesn't take a very kindly attitude to torrents, and I simply don't have the time to download the mod in parts. Any chance of uploading it to ModDB, guys?

The spiders that we'll be implementing are being carried across from Alreadydead's Perillicious Creature Mod (http://www.twcenter.net/forums/showthread.php?t=355651). Dunno if they have any kind of missile attack. You can get a very brief glimpse of them in battle at the end of MasterBigAb's fantastic vid, The Dying Sands (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0fVyTZ2mAd4).

@Earl of Memory: I didn't know you'd joined, mate! I'll add you to the group.

Yep. It means "House of the Petty Dwarves" - that was the name of Mim's home before Túrin & co. took it over.

I believe they will also have one or two other settlements in the Blue Mountains and along the Dwarf Road.

There will be two evil factions, one lead by Sauron and one by Sauron's boss, Morgoth. They'll come with the usual orcs, but also with a number of more exotic beasties - balrogs and werewolves, for instance. There will also be one Dwarven faction.

Its not a priority and I doubt it will be in the first release, even if we do get around to doing it.

Nope, but its close. I'm working on the fringes at the moment - the Iron Mountains, the Blue Mountains and so on. Once that's finished, the map itself will be done.

If you want to join the team, I suggest contacting JorisofHolland (http://www.twcenter.net/forums/member.php?u=49263). He's the mod leader. As far as I'm aware, we're not looking for any more researchers at the moment, but it wouldn't hurt to ask. :)

No, we're not, though some of our team members did contribute to TATW.

I have a copy of The Children of Húrin myself. It's a really good read, but it's not out primary source, because The Children of Húrin is set after the start date of our mod. The mod begins soon after the Dagor Bragollach, whereas The Children of Húrin is set later; after the Battle of Unnumbered Tears, when things REALLY got bad for the elves. ;)

The mod is still in an early stage of development so its impossible to put any sort of estimate on the release date as of yet without running the risk of getting it wildly wrong, which is never good for the mod or its fans. We've made good progress these past couple of months, but there's still loads to do.

Squeaks did a fantastic job with them. There'll be a proper preview appearing on the news page soon, together with descriptions of all the units you see here, so keep an eye out! ;)

Of course! :D If you're planning to pick it up, though, you should know its nothing like LOTR. It isn't really a novel at all - more a creation myth and a history book bundled together. You could think of it as Middle-earth's Bible. ;)

Hey guys. Thought I'd pop in to mention a mod I'm involved in developing for Medieval 2: Total War Kingdoms. It's called War of the Silmarils and does what it says on the tin, really. :P

There should be a news post appearing on here sometime soon, so if it interests you at all, it would be great if you could have a look. Here's the URL:

Yeah, Earl of Memory really did (and is doing) a great job with them. Considering the best descriptions we usually get are stuff along the lines of "a shining host", there's a lot of improvising going on. :)

Well, there's a Second Age: Total War in development over at Total War Center too, so I suppose you could add them all up and make the argument that we'll soon have one!
