It looks really sweet. I'm wondering/worrying a bit though, how well will the vanilla assets match your work? Skyrims models are a bit... "Consolized"

We'll most likely re-texture a lot of items, but quite a lot of things work as vanilla.

A lot of Rohan stuff matches the vanilla stuff. So for Rohan, not many new meshes and textures are needed :)

@Revan9537: You won't find "Fiscryne" in any of Tolkien's books. Its an original Rohan settlement created for MERP :)

And before anyone goes crying "Its not in the books!? Lynch them!" please realize that Tolkien didn't go naming every village/town/city/etc in Middle Earth. We have to assume Rohan is composed of more then just Edoras, Aldburg, Helm's Deep, Grimslade, Upbourn, and Underharrow (they had 6,000 soldiers show up at Pellenor Fields afterall). In MERP, Rohan is around the same size as Skyrim, so we do need to fill in the gaps ;)

Actually they had more like 10,000 or 12,000 can't remember. They had to leave half their force to protect Rohan from the enemy force that came over Cair Andros ;)

@Klevdude: Yeah yeah, thanks for one-upping me >_>

No but really: all the more proof why MERP will need custom settlements.

Dirt, stone, and wood. Very rustic. Looks very much like how I'd imagine a village/town in Rohan looking. (:

There are too much stone for a Rohan village (in my opinion), except if this one is close to a mountain. A little bit more wood on the models could maybe improve the entire village. :)
(Rohan is a big plain, so there are only a few stones/rocks)

It is stone, but of a rough hewn, unquaried variety. We won't use too many of the "advanced" stone structures in Rohan. Many larger settlements will have custom and/or modified assets.

Isn't it the exact opposite, that there's more rock and stones on a plain than trees?

I think this is awesome. There are some Skyrim vanilla textures, but that doesn't matter in-game. With npc's added and a video to show me, I will turn into a happy little man. ^_^ More than of these pictures and they are awesome! (as usual). :-P

Hmm, when you start MERP as a Rohan soldier, it would be cool, if a small village like this would be the starting location, so that you'll first see major locations, like Edoras, later on. Maybe a visit to Isengard (if not too far away?), where it is still green, and then later on, join the White Council and travel to Rivendell? Just a thought you could consider when you get to that point in MERP. :-D
Or have you already planned something for that? :-)

What about: starting off at a border village, while being raided by a Dunland raiding party. You try and hold them of, but can't and have to retreat (with your family, parents/nephews/etc), fleeing away from your home, as you see it burn.
You run to the nearest town/city and maybe join the militia or start a complete different adventure.

This is what I had in mind for a Rohan beginning, I hope some ideas of it may be useful. :)

Btw nice houses, not as Anglo-Saxon as I hoped, but I won't mind it's great either way.:D

Its an original Rohan settlement not from the books. Fiscryne means "Fish Run" in Old English. Expect a lot of Old English in Rohan :P
