    Thanks, Jagmodo. I realize some players may ignore most of the in-game flavor text, so it's good to know someone will be reading it!

    Rhovanion's preview will come, though probably not for a little bit. Beornings next, and then we may hop over the Misty Mountains to see what's brewing in the western lands. But I aim to go through all the factions of DoM and give them the same treatment.

    The plan is to start a new thread for these previews, to keep them all in one easy-to-access place on the forums. As things change over the course of development, the thread may be updated to reflect those changes.

    I'll probably get to the Beornings preview (in the new thread) in the next couple of days.

    Uhm, the Kievan Rus were Northmen after all, am I right?

    So, the assumption chain Variags => Varangians => Rus => Vikings => Northmen was somewhat predictable.
    I would rather have a memory that is fair but unfinished than one that goes on to a grievous end.

    Yes, but as I have already written, I assumed they have chosen solely real Mongolian culture instead of Nortmanish as the base for Khand.

    Based on Khandian units that we could have seen in TNS, I haven’t had a clue. Therefore, Surprise! Surprise! for me. If you managed to foresee/deduce combination of separate steppe and separate Northmanish culture/units, each retaining its distinct identity – great for you!

    Maybe I had to put comma in the sentence you quoted to make it more understandable... - right about here ^.

    I've tried downloading the installation but when I click on the installer it just says "This file contains invalid data". Does anyone have any suggestions how to fix this?

    The file probably got corrupted during download. Try downloading again or from a different mirror.

    Will the Dev Team will follow this map I found for the future developments of the mod?

    Here's the map's link: http://aidanmoher.com/blog/wp-conten...nds_color.jpeg

    My alters throughout the history: Phraotes of Persepolis (270 BC), Konstantinos Severokos (470 AD), Justino Paz (Middle Ages), Yamato Yoshiro (Med. Japan), Markus Varsanka (Renaissance to 1700s and Napoleonic era).

    That map is both inaccurate and depicts the world many thousand years before our mod's timeframe, so we won't be following it, no.

    To be honest, you couldn't find worse map of Middle-earth even if you tried...
    If you want more accurate maps of Arda by Ages check spoilers in this post:

    To be frank, there’s no way devs will expand the map of DoM, even if they decide to develop it further in the future. There’s almost nothing known about the lands beyond, so everything would be only fan fiction without bases in lore. Also, almost all slots (units, factions, cultures, ...) will be filled, so nothing without groundbreaking Memory Editing that still needs much work. But even with that, larger isn't always the better.

    Out of curiosity, will there be an Aeglos in the possession of the Elves the mod? If yes, will Faction Leader model use it of it will it be just represented as a trait/ancillary?

    Also, I don’t want to sound like I complain (again), but is there an option to mute/volume down music on your ModDB page? It’s OK if there is that option, but I honestly didn’t find it. Otherwise, it is just intrusive; especially if someone want to watch videos on it (Dev Diary), or listen to his music and read…

    What is the current situation of hordes? I remember reading that every faction could horde once, and then that this was no longer true.

    Will the Shire be playable in the campaign? What are, roughly, their victory conditions?

    Well, Shire is surely unplayable. It just wouldn't be plausible to have Hobbits conquering Middle-earth. Also, their roster is very limited.

    I'm also very curious why you have turned off the "exile feature"? It seemed very nice in theory. I assume AI is just too dumb to handle it...

    The current situation of hordes is that hording is available to Rhun and Khand only. In an earlier post, I had mistakenly said that all factions could horde, which was once planned to be the case.

    Hobbits are unplayable. It would be quite difficult to think of reasonable victory conditions for the Shire faction, since they begin the game with all of the Shire in their possession.

    Not atm.

    Also, I don’t want to sound like I complain (again), but is there an option to mute/volume down music on your ModDB page? It’s OK if there is that option, but I honestly didn’t find it.

    That's something four our ModDB page manager (Feanaro) to answer.

    Having it for everybody decreased the uniqueness of Rhun and Khand, plus there were some slight inconsistencies with the way the game creates horde armies and our unit balance settings.

    The only way to mute the ModDB page music is muting your own computer. You can still see the Dev Diaries without the music in the background, though, if you click the "videos" option on the toolbar.

    Well, I don't think there is a way to tone it down or mute it. But the music only plays in the main page of the mod, and that means the only thing it will intrude on is reading the comments there.

    Yes, plus mod summary, and that’s what newbs look for, right? Without the option to turn off the music it seems a bit forced upon visitors.

    Imagine the situation newb stumbling upon this mod while listening to his music. It would collide and he/she would have to turn off either the page he’s looking or his music (or both). Guess which one is more likely if he isn’t acquainted with the mod... When something is forced upon someone it soon becomes a burden.

    Well, do what you think is the best, I won’t force my opinion on you.
