    Yes, in fact I added more, such as mountain settlements in mountainous areas. But certain settlements in the Fourth Age Campaign, such as Barad-Dur and the Black Gate, will be destroyed and therefore not unique. Just abandoned ruins that can be built up after being populated. Mordor's settlements will be occupied by Narnian (I guess is what they are called) rebels, and the Variags will eventually take it over causing the RK to have to fight on yet another front. So even playing a game as the RK should be fun and challenging.

    While this magical adventure full of magic and adventure may be quite magical I have doubts about it being adventurous enough. How might one alleviate my fears?

    These symptoms are common, and may be alleviated by sniffing 10 cc's of glue and/or eating a few paint chips half an hour before your largest meal. You can trust me, I am doctor.

    Yes, the Variags have lamellar armor and similar gear as the Steppe people's in the Middle Ages wore. Most units I created still need skins, other than that they are ready to rock.

    I would appreciate some help with shields, but I don't have textures lined up for them yet. I will probably do all the units myself as I already know in my head what kind of look and feel I want them to have.

    Not to be a downer on the very impressive mod coming along, but having a 'magical adventure full of magic' in the fourth age really doens't fit with what we know of the Fourth Age. The Fourth Age was sort of Tolkien's bridge between the fantasy world of middle earth and the 'real' world. Magic was almost gone and the magical creatures were on the decline. Having a huge number of dragons and all sorts of other fantasy creatures makes about as much sense as having Peacekeeper Command Carriers in a mod about the Siege of Gondolin.

    As I said, the mod looks to be very impressive, but it seems to ignore much of the established fourth age lore.

    How about a croissant axe instead? I don't think I will be adding any Crescent axes. They look cool but are not very functional in real life for chopping. That or something similar would look good as a pollarm weapon I think, so maybe I will add another unit to the Variags roster in the future. Thanks for the idea.

    It is just a joke, I didn't actually mod any magic into the game. This mod follows what little lore there is on the Fourth Age. If you know any lore I don't know about, please share it.

    So far I have three custom campaigns planned for the Fourth Age.

    Dawn of the Fourth Age: Begins during the War of the Ring, in which Sauron needs to be destroyed (and has a serious military advantage). Then the Fourth Age comes and you do your thing.

    Fourth Age Campaign: Begins right after the fall of Sauron. Mordor and Isengard are already destroyed.

    Fourth Age Late Campaign - Begins about fifty years (200 turns) into the Fourth Age Campaign and factions are more developed and have expanded a bit. Optional Creature Invasions script for late in the game, when things start getting dull.

    i red at some place that 2 of the originally 5 wizards (istari) sent by the valar in m.e were lost somewhere in the east (deep rhun) and that their teachings got a bit "twisted"..saruman went with them too, in the beginning, but when he decided to return ,they instead decided to remain..anyway here's the article and in general ,this site is gonna help you with research and inspiration..it's very well organized - categorized like an encyclopedia..

    all i know about Dol Guldur after it got destroyed is that the elves were re-taking it and renamed it into Amon Lanc wich means Bald Hill, and the region was called East-Lorien.
    not 100% sure though

    That was one of Tolkien's original ideas for them, that he mentioned in a letter. A later note, however, has Tolkien saying that they actually remained good guys, and were instrumental during the third age, as they organized rebellions and resistance against Sauron's rule in the East. Tolkien said that without them, Mordor would have had far more Evil Men to throw at the West.
    Source: The Unfinished Tales

    Of course, Tolkien had a tendency to juggle around his opinions, and little was ever truly final until it was published, so whether we believe his earlier letter (bad Wizards) or his later note (good Wizards) is a matter of discussion.
