    Generally we only respond to suggestions made in our community forums:

    Fortress maps will contain buildplots but otherwsie we’ll be keeping the free-build style.

    We provide clean versions of each game (them being abandonware) plus installation instructions here:
    Forums.revora.net

  17. Do you have a Discord?
    Yep.
  18. Will you add walls to Mordor?
    No.
  19. Why can't I build a second fortress with Gondor?
    You can. The fortress icon is in the builder's personal commandset because we ran out of space on the right side of the screen.

    Legolas will be a hero in Mirkwood, which isn't released yet.

I am not able to upgrade past level 1 in my Blacksmith or in any other faction to upgrade my armor and strength. Any ideas why?
Absolutely LOVE what you all have done!!!

As it is a resource gathering building you must wait for it to upgrade. It gains XP automatically while gathering resources, and I think it gets XP too when it researches upgrades.

I swear it feels like it does gain xp when buying upgrades but I can't ever remember to look at the level bar when it does.

I wonder if its AoE influences how quickly it upgrades? I.e. does a blacksmith placed at 100% upgrade quicker than one placed at like, 60% for example? Or is that just how many resources it produces...

It does. The structure needs to gather x amount of resources to rank up. So if you place it well it generates more and ranks up quicker.

Good to know! I'll stick with the current tactic then - 1 well-placed blacksmith to gather resources / level up quickly for upgrades, and then cram the rest in wherever to get the discount! =P
