This is the most basic sword in the Thenodrim lineup. There will be more ornate designs in some areas of course. But our art direction isn't the type to go insane with the crazy designs. There will be armors with more flare, especially ancient sets, but they will be rare loot.

Also the Engine as a Service subscription system that CE3 released is a huge disappointment. Really hurts more than helps indies. UE4 is very user friendly and the subscription system is very good and indie friendly

Actually, for the middle ages this is about right xD
But another thing to keep in mind is that this individual might be of a heavy/stocky build. Which would create an illusion of shortness. But of course, it's not lije everyone who is wearing this in game will look exactly the same in terms of height and build anyway :P

Yeah the pictures not being there is partly because magic and its related groups and factions aren't our focus so concept art for them is not being developed right now. However, this is by far the most bland post in the three part series :P . Origins almost always are...well kinda dull. Hopefully, you will find the next two more interesting. If not, well...next week will be a new subject :P

Hmmm. Not entirely true. The Gondorians are actually the Numenoreans in Exile. Numenoreans were a monotheistic culture according to the Akalabeth, worshipping Eru (Illuvitar), the God in the Middle Earth cosmology. However, I doubt they built churches. The Numenoreans only worshipped in a small grove on the upper slopes of Meneltarma without a temple. A similar place is described on the slopes of Mindoluin above Minas Tirith.

We are currently focussing on and only have plans for the current LOTR focused mod. As for addons, we honestly can't say. A Harad and Rhun addon (AFTER 1.0, NOT now) have been talked about, but nothing we can say for certain as that is a long ways off. As for a the Fall of Numenor (the Akalabeth) addon, I don't know if that would work, but that doesn't stop another group from doing it in the future.

Well, in Oblivion it is kinda limited as when you "fly", what is happening is that the creature is essentially lifted via a script on an invisible "plane". That is why the Akatosh flying mount, while a very cool mod, doesn't look really natural in its motion. It is also why the Akatosh mount doesn't fly without the player riding it.

This is the same as in the latest beta release actualy. And movie accuracy isn't the number one focus anyways, but rather book accuracy (which is good as the books are far more epic than the movie :P). Also, Minas Morgul won't be restored to Minas Ithil as that is in direct contradiction to the lore, which states that Minas Morgul and the Morgul Vale are unfit to live in and High King Elesar (Aragorn) has the city razed to the ground and the vale burnt. However, a new city is built at Emyn Arnen and the great cities of Arnor are rebuilt (Fornost, Anuminas, etc) and that will be done in MERP.

It was your own fault. Use your head when you word your questions. You could have said something like this: "I like the elven towns you are doing! They look really nice. If you don't mind my asking, will you also be redoing some other generic towns in the future, namely the orc towns? Would be awesome if you did!" If you had said that, I doubt anyone would have minded or said a thing against you.

Personally, I wouldn't mind seeing custom orc settlements myself, but I recognize that this mod is MASSIVE and those sorts of things get done when they get done. And I think that all the awesome custom settlements will more than make up for any "flaws" (if you can even call them that) in 3.0.
