Legends of the 3rd Age rises! Formerly known as the Blue Wizard Mod, it now bears a new and more accurate name. Update 0.4 is available now: Moddb.com
Why was it named "Blue Wizard Mod" in the first place? Originally I planned to go for Harad/Evil Men as new factions because I've always been fascinated by the Blue Wizards (as "pallando" or "pallandoya" kinda tells), but then switched to Elves and Moria for other reasons. Legends of the 3rd Age was an early consideration before Gil-Galad (who is a 2nd Age character) was introduced to this mod. Gil-galad was disabled in an early update but currently is still in the mod (as an obsolete character).
It was a tough decision to rename Blue Wizard Mod at this point because it already is an established name. But the name made no sense at this point and caused way too much confusion among players. And no matter how painful a name change is now, it'd be even more difficult in a year to come. All links to this page however will stay the same.
Legends of the 3rd Age (short: Lot3A or LOT3A) focuses on the tales and heroes of the 3rd Age. In LOT3A, heroes have more powers available than in the base game, and every faction does have a ring/superior hero that can be unlocked via spell book.
Possibly even more focus could be put on heroes, in several ways, in the future. Where is LOT3A headed now? There are two more things on the list right now:
- Adding military outposts as a new form of expansion
- An improved Evil Campaign
Aside from that, lots of balancing will be required in order to make this mod a viable multiplayer alternative to the already balanced base game.
That's it for now. I hope you like the new name as much as I like it. :)
