Our aim with FA:TW is to accurately portray the lands and peoples of Middle-earth as we think they existed approximately three-and-a-half centuries into the Fourth Age.

I don't know about Helm's Deep (There might be something planned, or maybe not. In any case, I am not in the know) but there is a Dwarven settlement in the works. It is unfinished as of yet, so I can't preview it.
