    Ah, the curves. The two-handed curved blade will remain, due to one visual key:

    Not surprising, the LotR intro is the second of the reasons to why this game was made to begin with
    Egalmoth may have something to say about it, haha, but curved form aside, two-handed sword is not founded in lore either. From all my reasearch, JRR never described one. So, as we keep it in (the only proper two-handed sword in DCI, to my memory), the asthetic remaining from the film is not considered an issue.
    Turning to the Noldor bodyguard (who usally will be more commonly present throughout campaigns), they do have shield and sword, with straight blade:
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    Same goes for the Noldor of Lothlrien (who also have sword and shield).

    Yeah, he's the best ME paparazzo! haha


    PS: no indeed.
    The only generic missile unit of the Dwarves, who're usually given crossbows (Isengard aside), has common wood bows. Making the Orocarni archers with their composite bows all the more valuable, hehe.
    That's not far fetched either btw, Dwarves did craft such bows, as found in Erebor, in The Hobbit (and Thorin used it with skill):
    Beautiful work as ever !

    You guys have produced some real jaw-dropping stuff as usual. Fantastic work, gentlemen (and some ladies too, I presume, it's easy to forget there are women on this forum, lol, not sure about the mod team, though). You guys (and gals?) should be proud of your baby that you fathered here (and/or mothered)! And like Luca Brasi said in The Godfather: "I hope your first child will be a masculine child." But it could be a feminine one too, nothing wrong with that!

    Hope I covered all my bases there. Phew!

    Preview videos for Rhn Confederacy is now out.


    I ramble a bit, hehe, indeed had to cut it down a bit to not become far to long (still pass the hour mark), but hope it shall cover most matters of interest.
    Part 1 is an endeavor about strategy, economy, the faction uniqe tribes and ending with bodyguards.





    Source: https://youtu.be/bI1ntOmtl_w


    The rambling endeavor continues in part 2 with unit stats, battle mechanics and a long line of soldiers.

    Never would have thought that I'd be willingly watching two full hour-long previews for a video game mod and after watching - clamoring for more. Ngugi, you don't cease to impress me with your attention to detail, your ability to "translate" the LotR lore to Total War game mechanics, and your style of narration. All in all, a great job!

    [This new text is now found in the OP, under Rhn's info-box, to benfit the players]

    Tribes:
    Rhn has a 'tribal system', where the three groups of Balchoth, Khand and Haerhn provides uniqe units and bonuses.
    Each starting region has a Homeland-building representing a tribe; two regions for each tribe. The Homeland offers the tribe's special units (some are avilable first after the Barrack Event).

    When the Easterlings expand and conquer new regions, they can construct a Rhn Outpost and then dedicate the conquered region to a preferred tribe, by upgrading the Outpost into a Camp > Residence > Court, of the preferred tribe. Each specialization provides different units and bonuses (see chart below).

    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 


    Notes:
    - The Outpost can not be constructed in Homelands (because those are dedicated by default to the native inhabitants).
    - If you want to change tribe after a Camp or higher tier been constructed, the current building must be demolished and the Outpost-tree rebuilt, from Outpost onwards; this is a game limitation, but also enforce the need for planning and strategic decisions.
    - The highest Outpost tiers [Courts] provide retraining of all tribe units, even if the building do not allow them to be recruited (the exception is the Balchoth Tribesmen, who can only be retrained in Balchoth buildings).

    Strategic considerations when choosing tribe for a new settlement:

    Balchoth offers in general weaker but more units than the other tribes, making them good for players who appriciate numerical superiority.
    The population growth bonus is uniqe, in that it is avilable in all settlements, including castles and whatever the climate. The growth bonus makes this tribe a good choice for smaller settlements, as it allows them to upgrade faster.

    Khand has the heaviest units in the Confederacy, granting a defensive edge. Infantry with Armour Piercing and skilled archers makes them valuable against all enemies, but must beware of hostile AP units.
    The Law-bonus grants both public order and decreased wastage [corruption]. Combined with the fact that no unit is offered from the Camp, Khand is best chosen for larger settlements where public order may be a concern and where the Residence and/or Court can be constructed instantly.

    Haerhn provides 2H Axemen and Lancers, the heaviest normal cavalry unit, making them an aggresive alternative on the battlefield.
    The trade bonus (that operates as Markets) makes it a profitable option for settlements that have good trade income.
    Since there are only two tiers in their tree, it is preferable to build Haerhn in larger settlements where a Court can soon be constructed. However, as the Camp provides the Axemen instantly, it is also a good choice for settlements on vulnerable fronts, where quality fighters is in high demand.

    Glad to see things progressing - have been quietly following development for years. Might actually be persuaded to play my first Rhn game ever, in six years of playing TATW!

    Hello stalebread,
    we're happy to hear so, we have learnt over the years that most of our followers do so in silent vigil. That has the advantage we can lay most time on modding ofc, but we're always happy to hear people are looking foreward to the game
    That's great praise indeed
