    Not sure if that's what Psan was going for, though.

    Re: The Hobbit Trilogy 2012-2014

    Yes I can.


    You said they were "top notch". That means you think they're among the best movies ever made. If you don't, you can't call them "top notch" either, because that word implies quality....

    I don't find it particularly hard to compare other English classics to their movie adaptations.

  6. Sticky: Re: The Dominion of Men Open Beta General Feedback Thread

    That's an interesting solution. The problem in EB I though is that saving in between turns isn't so good for the script IIRC. In my later campaigns in EB, when I had to fight several battles on the...

    Well, in DoM, while most units behave as they should on the battlefield (apart from cavalry beating infantry in close combat, that's the one thing that requires serious fixing), 2h axes have a lower...

    Well yeah, there are a few elements in FATW that might require looking into WRT realism (although it's by no means as irksome as in most other fantasy games or mods). Including the AP Elven arrows -...

    Well in the case of Romance speakers or Greeks, I wouldn't say "extremely rare". Blondes are quite common in the northern areas of Spain and Italy, and not totally uncommon in Greece (not sure about...
  10. Re: Sarmatians (eg. Roxolani, Alans) should be Indo-European, not Mongoloid

    None of these are valid points. Western academia (regarding historical studies as well as science) has long ago severed any ties with political ideologies, and more importantly is independent of...

    I actually disagree, now that you bring this up. I think the new icons, and the images connected to them, are great. I just wish there were more of the (slightly modified) photos and paintings, and...
  13. Re: Unofficial Overview: Settlement Diversification and Customization Options in DoM

    You're welcome :) Out of curiosity, why doesn't Adnabr have access to the Royal Mint building (which would increase its Diversification options to seven, same as most other factions)?

  17. Unofficial Overview: Settlement Diversification and Customization Options in DoM

    Re: Unit balance/stat change proposals

    Aren't Rhn Axemen supposed to be a mid-tier unit though, as opposed to Rhovanion Axemen or similar units? Their unit design has them wear more armour - at least, it looks like that.

    Yeah, there seems to be a problem, although I don't really have a suggestion for its solution. In general, Snagas are annoying like hell when you play Dwarves, both in FATW and TATW.

  24. Sticky: Re: The Dominion of Men Open Beta General Feedback Thread

    No, I'm not referring to rebels. Just factional armies (like Dale's, who're most likely to be in need of teleporting).
  25. Sticky: Re: The Dominion of Men Open Beta General Feedback Thread

    Nope, doesn't work. At least not with "Lieutenant" (the official title in FATW). Should I try "Captain" instead?
  26. Sticky: Re: The Dominion of Men Open Beta General Feedback Thread

    Teleport helps.
    Speaking of which, how can I move a stack led by a captain?
