A thread its sole purpose being spam, and no one has posted the Monty Python sketch yet!? I'm so very disappointed.

Description of the "Steward of Gondor" office is broken. It just says "Steward of Gondor [description]" and "Steward of Gondor [description] effects".

I don't get it with the traits.
The King of the RK has the trait "Competent Commander". This sounds decent, but he has just one command in battle. I really don't understand how this works.
January 18, 2016, 03:56 PM
Yeah, it's really far from crystal clear...
Concerning the Stone of Erech, however, there is no ambiguity that the Men of the Mountain had a well-established kingdom of their own, and maintained...

Nope, nothing. Do I need the mines first?
Yep. I built the Financial Policy there, still nothing.

I'm having issues with the building three. Sometimes I just can't build things, also I should meet the prerequisites. I think this mostly affects industry buildings.
E.g., I built Carpenters'...

I was confused. I was aware that Dol Amroth did of course exist before 1981 TA, though it had another name. However, I remember that Gondor struggled for quite a while with the...

Wasn't the lethality of missiles fixed?
However, Archers in Tolkien's world are much more powerful than their real world counterparts have been.

The main issue with TATW is, that TATW vanilla, despite it's superb graphics, offers quite boring gameplay. Sure, there are fun units, but the rather simplistic building tree, and no ZoR-System at...
None is "Home in time for tea", but I'm pretty sure there are one or two that ar Bullroaring (Rhűn maybe?).

I rarely ever get retinues, except the titles of course.
Battle speed is fine mostly. If it takes that long to finish an enemy off, I suspect it's usually because of high defensive values. I just...
I know there are no scripts. But the rate they spill out armies feels as if the game engine suddenly was ported to M2TW, and it werepossible to recruit more than one unit per turn per town. It might...

Eärendil: "OMG! OMG! The evil faction is OP! HELP!"
Manwe: "Sorry dude, this is hard coded. You could cheat though..."
Haha, part 2 at 18:25:
Campaign: Kingdom of Tharbad
Difficulty: Decidedly Tookish / Bullroaring
So, this is the second campaign I started. Tharbad is quite comfortable playing, everyone else is busy with their...
1) The New Shadow is an older built of the mod (quite a lot older), including only six (?) campaigns. Dominion of Men is the latest, and final, release.
2) Nope. AFAIK the music is now implemented...

I just fought a few sieges at Amon Sűl, and it occured to me that instead of making new custom settlements it would be a great idea to improve the permanent forts.
This tiny camp inside huge stone...
I wish to address some issues with character traits.
In general I have to say, that family members suck. Most of them are poor or inept governours/commanders, and I don't see that much improvement...
January 16, 2016, 02:35 PM
What exactly does "improved" mean? Performance?
Yeah, Orthanc is implemeted since quite while.
January 15, 2016, 04:18 AM
This is a rather old issue. As Count said, the game sometimes just screws up this trait. Let the FMs stay in a town for a while, they should start healing.
January 15, 2016, 04:16 AM
Someday maybe. I definitely need a new computer first... -.-

May Eru Aradan bless my work and amend it!

I have collected a bunch of quotes, mainly from the Silmarillion, that I tought where missing in vanilla FATW.
I tried to...

It seems that apart from small forces like the Guards of the King's Hall and the personal retinue of some Nobles, like Éomer and Erkenbrand, there were few real soldiers in Rohan, the army consisted...

Insane prophecies... :D I can almost imagine.
There are just a few real prophecies I know of. One is concerning the Witch-king, the others were...

Oh boy, this is hilarious.
It's nice to watch the perfect movements of the Elven host. But Jackson definitely should be the first choice as director if a WARHAMMER movie was ever made. Just look...
August 12, 2015, 11:16 AM
Well, you could remove the timber requirement for Umbar only!
This should only require a few lines in the EDB. After all, it is quite complicated to find the trees suitable for ship-building and the...

Isn't the "density" (I can't think of a better term) of a formation only dependent on the radii given in the EDU? IIRC the size of the model doesn't matter, it might only look weird if you have a...
August 09, 2015, 01:16 PM
Nah, Tolkien probably just forgot about them. Also they're minor characters and at no point the story is told from their perspective.
July 03, 2015, 05:22 AM
Hehe, that's funny. Some lines are hilarious.
"Fëanor was the mightiest and most talented of the elves, and also their biggest :wub:."
"Fountains are delightful, not metal."
March 11, 2015, 11:44 AM
Nope, it's not the standard bearer (or the officers), it's the units.
The standard bearer has an ordinary vanilla 'fs_standard_bearer' skeleton, pikemen and halberds use the 'fs_thp_f_spearman'...
The Entwash had quite boggy river banks and was thus could only be forded at a few places. IIRC Shadowfax knew the ways across through the fens, but none of those could be traversed by a larger host.

How could I dare and stand up to Monty Python. :P
February 20, 2015, 09:04 AM
The tales collected and published by the Brothers Grimm never really were supposed to be "children's good night stories". In a way they are the continuation of the old sagas and myths. And neither...

ATM Aradan is quite inactive though. What's up with him anyway?
The Fellowship encounters a Troll in Moria. However, as there are now accounts of Orc holds south of Moria, I doubt that any Trolls would be found there.
@ 2: I tend to agree. It's not only a...

That Wolfhunters' abomination is way more crude than, and probably just as cumbersome as, the Axe... Just nitpicking, I won't complain about the tiny difference :P
February 14, 2015, 02:42 PM
I was actually thinking of simply making some chart and a new building browser that could be published in the forums. But whatever suits you best...
No, the Teleri of the Falas were considered Sindar.
They were called the Falathrim and strictly speaking they are not part of the group who called themselves the Eglath, the Forsaken, who had been...

Sometimes Christopher's ability to analyze and interpret his father's mythology amazes me.
Taking what he says into account, and I think he's completely right, this actually petty quarrel about some...
February 12, 2015, 12:51 PM
I was surprised to see that Cultic artillery has slightly higher attack than ordinary dúnedainic.
Also Rhovanion Axemen are painfully weak compared to Rhűn Axemen and their unit size is much...
