So what if they see it.It is good looking weapon

Well if they don't see it, it's not worth having in the map. It takes up extra space in the map, that if they're not going to see, is just wasted.

It may just be a great looking weapon, but it's useless if they can't see it.

Lets get some few things done here.... Right now Dr. itsekk is doing the terrain, I've requested him Helms Deep because I always can't get to get the damn thing done. If anyone is up for it, I will send you the map.

We need to talk about the events, Should I have them at all in my map? What kind of events do you guys want?

Balancing of Morgoth needs to be considered, I'm planning to have a event in the middle of the game that allows Nurn builders to allow the building of the Temple to Morgoth. How strong should he be? What Kind of spells?

Will other units have attached weapons also.If so I can try to find some weapons.

EDIT:
-Events sound nice.
-I am not terrainer.
-Maybe good guys should summon Manve.Balance of the force.
-Morgoth should have some kind of corrupting abilities.

Events should be battles. And you should have a dialog at the beginning of the map whether or not they want to have the battles on or off.

Morgoth should be a little on the unbalanced side, but not mega unbalanced.

I had stun and cleaving spells for my Morgoth. It seems fitting.

I've made a quick terrian for Helms Deep. It really sucks, but it's a beginning. Right now I don't know how to do it. I hope you can give me any specific ideas of how to make it. Then again i'm not sure if the general idea is ok, or how much space i should use. Can any of you guys do it better or something?

Btw, you should use that last texture space.

That looks really good. Just get rid of the ground paths for the turrets, they look terrible.

On-Topic: Merry Christmas and I hope your map will go on just fine.

No he wasn't on the pagan side.

LotR is riddled with Christian undertones. He even said so himself. He was good friends with C.S. Lewis who also wrote very religious stories.

Well, that's simple. There aren't multiple deities.

There is one God; Eru Iluvatar. He created the Valar, you could see them as arch-angels, sent to Middle-Earth to look after the world, and shape it, but in the end everything goes according to Iluvatar's will.

And then there are the Maiar, which you could see as regular angels that have come to Middle-Earth, with the Valar, to help Iluvatar's children (elves and men).

People often confuse the Valar with Gods because they're practically omnipotent, BUT they're not gods. There is only 1 God; Eru Iluvatar.

Anyway in features of this map you said that there will be events.
Whats the plan.Having some major attacks or searching for lost things from old ages?
Or some kind of third creep faction that will sometimes bother players like rebelions, bandits, leftovers of great armies like wild Uruk-Hai?

Events, we hadn't gotten far on yet. I see that Conflict for Sereg D'or map isn't protected, so I'm trying to learn the triggers they used for events. Theres a event list but that's unbalanced crab i was babbling about. We will get to that later.
