I suppose it can't be done to start glowing when "orcs are close."
Not sure if this was how it was in the books but it would be cool to see it anyway.

It only starts glowing when you ARE close to orcs. If you notice at the very beginning of each test, it isn't glowing at all.

Well that can be easily changed if you change the area of effect. But we thought that this distance was good enough.

Seems I was wrong. Indeed it doesn't glow in the start.

Please tell me you're going to make it so we can custom enchant blades to have this effect too?

Yes! Anduril too, but with its own effect ;)

Nice effect! But is Anduril meant to glow? I thought that was just the blades made in Gondolin.

The way Sting glows while the character gets closer and closer to an orc(of course orcs in MERP won't be the vanilla Oblivion's ones).
