Frequently Asked Questions

Q: When will this mod be done?
A: When it’s done.

Q: How long you think it takes you to release beta of the mod?
A: It’s still too early in development to tell, but I’m thinking sometime this year (if things roll smoothly that is).

Q: Is this mod for Kingdoms?
A: Yes.

Q: Are the elves in the Elven Faction thread high elves or a mix of wood and high?
A: Mostly high, but some wood. There will be two elven factions though.

Q: Will dwarves have recruitable cavalry of some type?
A: We think so, but it won’t be very good. but the dwarven melee infantry will be some of the best (next to the elves of course)

Q: Do you want this mod to focus mainly on the books, or the films?
A: It’s not really one or the other, we use both, it seems that we are going with the movies on most of the armor because it provides our modelers with a visual aid.

Q: Are you going to imply the Fellowship/destroying of the Ring in some way?
A: Not in this release, we may not even do it at all, not really a purpose of the tw series to have little quests like that.

Q: I’ve seen you are focusing on the movies for the unit looks, are you going to do the same with portraits of generals/heroes like Theoden/Eomer/Elrond/etc?
A: Yes, it will give a photoreal look to the portraits and just improve overall look and feel.

Q: Will this mod focus only on the War of the Ring? if so how long will one turn take? And will one be able to continue after the WotR?
A: No it will start about fifty years before.

Q: What would be the goal in the campaign?, conquer x settlements?, destroy x enemy factions?, destroy the Ring?
A: Yes, Yes, and No. We’ll probably throw in a few other things too, but it’s still too early in development right now.
