18 comments by IreneHawnetyne on Aug 18th, 2015

It's been years in the making, and God knows it doesn't feel like nine years since I started modding. I started Westernesse in late 2012 with some crazy intention of having a release mid 2013, and of course that didn't happen, but it seems that every time I did something, I'd have to fix the bugs surrounding it, and just manage to get it in game. But even now, nearly into September 2015, it feels like nothing has happened, and in a way that's true. The truth is that Westernesse is an awful mess, with none of the new assets in game not working due to unexplainable errors that nobody knows how to fix, and for the last half a year I've been struggling by with the semi-functional tools I've got. I think it's time to call it quits now, since I'm off to university to study this type of thing full-time, and while I've lost no interest in finishing Westernesse, I've come to the realization that it's just too far gone now, and that I will never be able to complete it.

I'm grateful for all the support you have all given me, and I'm sorry for those who awaited a release, but I think the time has come to say farewell.

It is unfortunate that a project of this magnitude finished well, but it's your decision and respect.

IreneHawnetyne luck with your studies and your future projects that you deserve.

Is Arnor and Gondor going to be two separate factions or is it just going to be men?

At the moment I'm taking time away from Westernesse, building Gundaband structures for Rider of Rohan's The Horse Lords mod. You can check his other stuff out here, by the way:

Sorry, haven't been here for a bit (Vacationing in a place with **** WiFi) but damn this mod is looking better by the second! I have extremely high hopes for this mod, but I feel like I have to ask a few questions, if that's okay.(BTW I haven't read any lore, at all, so please if you think my questions are stupid and will lead to a lengthy answer, you don't have to answer them.) First of when does Westernesse occur? (What age) and what really is occuring?(I've gathered that there is a civil war between two Numenorean factions, but that's about it.) Well, those are my questions, please don't be mad if you already told everyone somewhere, just send me a link, and If my questions are stupid, feel free to ignore them.

Not stupid questions at all, I appreciate them! Westernesse is set in the Second Age, in the last years of the dwindling Age of Númenor, and depicts the culmination of ideological frictions between the Elendili, who worship the Valar, and the Adûnaim, or Black Númenóreans, who are in the process of rebelling against the 'Gift' of Mortality. With the arrival of Sauron in Númenor, this friction escalates, and ensnares Ar-Pharazôn, the King whose sympathies lie with the Adûnaim, and blood is spilt on both sides, ending up in the Elendili fleeing to Middle-earth and Ar-Pharazôn's beginning of the Great Armament, a fleet intended to conquer Valinor. There is more detail in the lore, and Westernesse explores the human situation and dilemmas involved, and the distrust from man to man, and the fear and violence that springs from civil war.

Personally I gotta side with the Black Númenóreans in the war

If the Elendili love their 'gift' of mortality so much I say they should get it delivered to them through the sharp end of a spear

But I always tend to root for the villains so Meh xD
