    I read the silmarillion long time ago and I hardly remeber it. This mod is encouraging me to read it again.
    The reflections of the metal textures is one of the things that I like most about your units, they look very realistic to me in the screenshots.
    My favourite units so far are those bodyguards from the House of the King, and those archers with blue cloak (House of the Harp they said). Amazing units!

    Tuor and House of the Wing (reworked) :
    Tuor Eladar (born F.A. 472) was a hero of the Edain in the last years of the First Age, and the father of Eärendil. In spite of being a Man, he was chosen by the Vala Ulmo to be the last hope of the Noldor in the face of annihilation by the forces of Morgoth.

    Born in the winter of the 'Year of Lamentation', Tuor's life coincided with the final defeat of the Edain and the Noldor-in-Exile by the forces of Morgoth. He was of the House of Hador, but after the deaths of his parents Huor and Rían in the Nirnaeth Arnoediad was fostered by the surviving Elves of Mithrim. He passed his youth a refugee and an outlaw, before being guided by the Vala Ulmo to the hidden city of Gondolin. There he rose high in the favour of the High King Turgon and wedded the elf-maiden Idril, the King's daughter. Escaping the fall of Gondolin, he and his family came to the Mouths of Sirion. After abiding there long enough to see Eärendil to manhood Tuor finally succumbed to his sea-longing and, with Idril, departed Middle-earth for the West. The tradition of the Noldor was that he became the only Man to be accepted as one of the elder kindred and will share with them an immortal life in Valinor as long as Arda will endure.

    Avant-goût : Kingdom of Doriath (WIP) :
    Doriath was a realm of forests about the great river Sirion, with in it the forests Neldoreth (also Taur-na-Neldor, the northern beech forest), Nivrim (also West-march, an oak forest), and Region. Additionally, the forests of Brethil and Nan Elmoth were held as part of Doriath, but these last two lay outside the Girdle of Melian. King Elu Thingol of Doriath, also High King of the Sindar, saw all of Beleriand as his realm, from the Gelion to Belegaer.

    The Vanyar and Noldor had passed by it on the Great Journey, and had been ferried across on Tol Eressëa by the time the Teleri arrived. Then their lord Elwë was lost in Nan Elmoth, and when Ulmo returned for them a part remained behind. They became known as the Sindar or Grey Elves, and when Thingol returned he became their king, ruling from Doriath.

    Doriath was originally named Eglador, but in the last years before the First Age attacks by Melkor's creatures (Orcs) began to increase in Beleriand, and Melian fenced the forests of Neldoreth, Region, and Nivrim. Thingol then called all the Sindar to Doriath, but many remained in the wild. After the First Battle of Beleriand, many Laiquendi removed to Doriath.

    Eöl the Dark Elf leased Nan Elmoth from Thingol, having paid the sword Anglachel for it.

    The Dwarves of Belegost and Nogrod were contracted to build the halls of Menegroth, which became Thingol's capital.

    When the Noldor returned to Middle-earth at the beginning of the First Age, Thingol refused to allow them in Doriath, with the exception of the children of Finarfin, who were related to him by his brother Olwë.

    When later Men arrived in Beleriand, they were also refused entry, but at Finrod's request the Haladin were allowed to live in Brethil.

    Beren, son of Barahir and lord of the First House of Men, passed through the Girdle as Melian had foretold, and arrived in Neldoreth. There Thingol's daughter Lúthien fell in love with him. After the Quest for the Silmaril the Wolf Carcharoth also breached the Girdle, but Thingol, Beren, and Thingol's captains Beleg and Mablung hunted and killed the beast.

    Túrin was sent to Doriath, and lived there until he came of age, when he fled from the land. Later his mother and sister, Morwen and Nienor lived there, until they were lost.

    Húrin brought the treasure of Nargothrond to Doriath after the fall of Finrod's realm, and Thingol enlisted the Dwarves of Nogrod to combine the Silmaril of Beren and Lúthien with the Nauglamír, the Dwarves' Necklace. The Dwarves then attacked Thingol, and slew him, stealing the necklace, during the first Sack of Doriath. Melian then left, and with her the protective Girdle.

    Doriath was briefly restored under Beren and Lúthien's son Dior Eluchíl, but he was attacked and killed by the sons of Fëanor in the Second Kinslaying. Afterwards Doriath remained abandoned until it was sunk along with most of the rest of Beleriand.

    If you intend on using that in a description, you should know that Tolkien Gateway is incorrect when it says "last years before the First Age". The First Age began with the Awakening of the Elves at Cuivienen.

    That's a matter of point of view. Most of the scholars consider that the First Age began with the rise of the Moon and the Sun and the awakening of the Men in Hildórien. Anyway, that is not so important, just enjoy the preview .

    Actually, it is not a matter of point of view. It is a matter of what Tolkien said:
    "In those days, in the Year one thousand and fifty of the Valar, the Elves awoke in Kuiviénen and the First Age of the Children of Ilúvatar began."
    Morgoth's Ring, Annals of Aman
    "In the manuscript as it was originally written the Elder Days began with the Awakening of the Elves: 'Here begins the Elder Days, or the First Age of the Children of Ilúvatar'; but 'the Elder Days' was struck out and does not appear in the typescript."
    War of the Jewels, Tale of Years
    "'Ages' last about 3000 years.'"
    "Each 'Age' last[ed] somewhat more or less than 3000 years;"
    "The First Age was the longest."
    Peoples of Middle-earth, Tale of Years of the Second Age
    "It [Quenya] was no longer a birth-tongue but had become, as it were, an 'Elven-latin', still used for ceremony, and for high matters of lore and song, by the High Elves, who had returned in exile to Middle-earth at the end of the First Age."
    LotR, Appendix F
    Tolkien being the scholar who counts

    Now Dramborleg looks more like a proper axe!
    It is such a quiet thing, to fall. But far more terrible is to admit it.

    Gil-galad and his bodyguard:
    Here is Gil-galad, future High King of the Noldor during the Second Age. In the Silmarillion, he is son of Fingon, but in later writings Tolkien made him son of Orodreth. Orodreth is the son of Angrod and so the nephew of Finrod Felagund. We have not decided yet which version of its genealogy will be in the mod.
