So in the next version, which I hopefully release before the last Hobbit movie, the player will be able to play as a dwarf.
Dwarven armours, shorter swords and bows, and of course huge axes with tremendous damage will be avaible on the dwarven settlements :)
The glitch that Isengard player is orc and Mordor player is Uruk-hai is fixed as well (Now choosing Isengard means uruk-hai)
Pointy ears for elven players have been added.
Addonays elven weaponry, and TLD dwarven helmets, shields
Dwarven troop-tree overview
Hopefully, in the far, far future (no closer than 2015) I will make the first costum scenes. (Not sure)

Until it I wish you a nice gameplay, wait for next upload (~end of October) and gimme gimme gimme good reviews :)

Very funny, but I made a mistake in the fix in the previous file as well... So this really should work, and really fix version 1.27... I hope so :D

It's messed up at the moment.
I recommend Full Invasion2 if you want to play Lotr multiplayer, that and this mod use quite many common items.

the new version will have ;) search for the bandit unit called "Stalkers" in the taverns; you'll be able to train Rhovanion soldiers and Rhun soldiers from them.

In the next patch i wish you can balance the faction's armies, lets say a group of 40 Rohan(35 on a horse) can easily take a 100 orc from Mordor.
The Cave Trolls are great but that won't do it, beside the Huge population of Mordor, they have the weakest army, you can make them tougher to be killed, creating a bigger taller forms of them.
Any ideas guys?

yep, that's one of the future improovements; you can recruit an orc scum, and then isntantly train him to battle orc, then to uruk -> less TYPE (not number) of units for mordor player, but stronger. Note that Mordor NPCs will have numerous weaker units (snágás, goblins, and weaker scum) BESIDE the "elite orc" (=almost as good as a normal human warrior) units. Strenghtening the orc make me a little problem, but I decided to make their armour far better, instead of giving them high skills. Maybe more hitpoints, as well.
