The war of the valar will bring to life the first, second, and early third ages of arda with new factions like the eldar, dunedain, khazad, and angband. New spell tree abilities will be added as well as an improved ai system, and a new hero system. The new hero system will only take place in the new skrimish trigger maps.The map will consist of 3 silmarils. Once these silmarils are brought to a maia of players that team (i.e. Sauron, gandalf, etc) they will be able to call forth an ainur such as manwe or melkor.
With huge progress made toward the Angband faction we may start offering in game screenshots sometime soon. The War of the Valar has quickly and greatly progressed since its initialization roughly 5 weeks ago. Planning has become a much larger process than originally anticipated, but it is turning out quite well. The building in this image is called the volcanic shaft. It will be used to generate resources by players using the angband faction.
