Southern Fiefdoms

LossarnachLamedomLebennin


Ok I'm officially announcing the 17th Faction for Lone Wolf.The Southern Fiefdoms of Gondor or Fiefdom for short,is a faction has been in the works for some time and it was made as an answer to a problem with Gondor.
Gondor had too many Heroes and Units so I decided to create a faction consisting of those extra Heroes and Units.
The Fiefdoms of Gondor are a varied army with many types of units from all of Gondor's Fiefdoms.There main strength comes from the Knights of Dol Amroth lead by Prince Imrahil.
The noble knights are a powerful unit for The Fiefdoms being the Strongest Cavalry unit in the game are expensive.
They are almost the equivalent of a fully upgraded Gondor Knight and come to battle fully armoured.
They will have different upgrades to strengthen them.Fiefdom also have the strong Morthond Bowmen use to skirmish the enemy forces.

OVERVIEW

Fiefdom are usually weaker in terms of attack and armour to make up for this they are pretty fast on their feet great at hit and run attacks and raiding.
Using Militia and Hunters to start with Fiefdom can put early game pressure on the enemy though these units are weak against structures making them ill suited to taking down the enemy early on.
To balance this out the Fiefdom can build Axemen which are great at taking down structures especially Farms though they aren't as fast as other Fiefdom units.

A fiefdom player will possibly use waves of units to batter down the opponent for instance using hunters and militia to draw fire then using Axemen to take down farms then when the counter attack comes they can pull back the Axemen and use either the Hillmen or Pikemen to counter a Cavalry counter.

As a rule the fiefdom will be good against units but weak against structures (except Axemen and Siege) they will also have a good selection of useful units early on in the game.
In later game they can begin using stronger units like the Warriors of Pennith Gelin,Household of Golasgil and Knights of Dol Amroth.

Because the Fiefdoms are made of various Gondor fiefdom's fighting together heroes usually function as captains for their people able to buff their own people.
In this way Imrahil can buff Knights of Dol Amroth and Dol Amroth Men at Arms but not other units.
Players may choose to maximise this and stick with a certain Fiefdom and captain in Early game.

The Fiefdoms will be the faction that replaces Morgul in the next beta.I was going to surprise everyone by announcing at the last minute.But with the discussion of The Fiefdoms in the lore discussion topic I was nervous about my faction being inadvertently revealed. :pAs for progress:Only a small portion of the art has been made so far that being the Morthond Bowmen skins,The Knights of Dol Amroth,Imrahil,The Castle Walls,Building Foundations and the Camp Walls.Most of the Fiefdom's code has been done however with the faction already sporting a complete spell store,partially complete AI and most of the Heroes and units coded.Also as you can see above a couple of the Banners have also been designed.I'll be revealing more of these over the next few weeks. I'll also be showcasing some screenshots,renders and concept art over the next few weeks as well.
