From the depths a light shall rise, a star of hope for all the World. As a darkness gathers, it shall stand mighty as the blade, and be the shield that shelters as well as the spear that drives to the heart of evil. Yet, as this light will shine, darkness will slither like a tendril of hate, like a fatal disease, and the star will be its slave. Alas, this is the fate of all things, yet most beautiful cruelty is in the fall of Numenor. This mod will bring you back to the Second Age, before the War of the Ring, when the Dark Lord Sauron sought to corrupt and destroy the hearts of Men which lay bound to the fate of Westernesse and both scatter the loyal Dunedain as well as bending to his will those with weaker hearts or demeanour. With an all-new campaign, two new factions, a specialised purpose-built Living Map for use in the War of the Ring mode, plus new maps to battle over, this truly expansive mod will reinvigorate your Battle for Middle-earth experience like never before!

So, as a few of you here may have seen, the Black Numenoreans are being built, with their final architecture after a few testing phases as you've seen earlier in Westernesse's progress.

Firstly, the Fortress, from which builders and Heroes can be purchased, with a number of upgrades:

One of the expansions is the Tower, however unlike the fortresses of other factions, Numenors' are far larger, and so have only four expansion plots as opposed to the traditional six:

Also planned are Pyre and Catapult expansions

Next is the Wall sections, of which their are segments, minor gates and hubs, and later to be added are Towers and main gates:

You know, man, thank you. Thank you so much, and to everyone who's said this before, and whilst I've said this before I'll say it again, that everyone who supports this mod is giving me something to hold on to, and to motivate me more than anything else. There's nothing like appreciation to keep you going when you're toiling away at UV maps and importing and exporting hundreds of times for just a few models. So, yeah, thank you so much guys, I love you all.
