I have been lately taking away a lot of their Númenóean influence, (Since Númenór will be a civilization now) and working on changing/remaking portraits.

I redid their infantry portraits. Since it was one of the first civilizations I made it had a lot of bugs. So I dealt with those bugs (Stringable errors, unbalanced technologies and stats...)

Everything looks great, especially the homecities!

I really like all the map ideas, so it's a tricky decision, but I'll go for the Valley of Imladris.

Looks awesome! Rohan definitely has to be there! Dead Marshes too!

Are we gonna see a Pelennor Fields and a Helm's Deep some day?

And also, will single player skirmish be available?

And (last question) will this work with the Steam version of AOE 3?
