Heh, that'll be the day. A lot of us are going to second age, sounds like it actually has some real rp. War mechanics are a bit strange but at the very least more realistic. Sadly it sounds like rob and Konrad already screwed Numenor over with coups and other crap.
Hey, crafter6789 here. Mind updating me on the happenings in Gondor? I have missed the server dearly since my ban, and I am dying to know what's happening. e_0_s seems to not discuss with me much about what's going on (he's pretty cranky around me, and all this Pelargir stuff I don't care about, tbh. Although I am a little pissed about the money, but that's really it), and I've been dying to know...
A short summary is all I want, really. I looked at the page, I saw a war with Mordor (you guys are doing great! For what it's still worth, good luck), but other than that, I don't know much.
If my ban appeal gets accepted, I will hopefully see you on DOME again!
Firstly, staff will probs never accept your ban appeal and that's coming from them. As for Gondor, we are beating mordor to a pulp thanks to our new general. DA is going to be annexed (Mi9i finally agreed), arnor and Gondor may also unite today. On darker tidings the uruks have claimed once again (they're all fools I don't fear them, especially with DA) harad is weak as usual. The poros wall is coming along nicely. Still need a build team for MT, PG is our new capital and it's a death trap, no ones taken it yet. And I think I'm about to negotiate a deal with coco about splitting harondor between the two of us, we each get our rightful half (south Gondor for us harondor for them). As for Pelargir, only thing they erased was your coins, they didn't touch the other chests and I saved everything else from the smithy and all that before they knew it was there. I put it to good use, I also saved the mithril stacks. So basically I'm the richest guy around now. Things are going good for Gondor but, we know that a spy has infiltrated our war council (Skype chat). We are doing what we can to find out who. I doubt you'll get unbanned so if you just really want to come back I'd recommend buying a new account.
Who is the spy, and how do you know he is in your skype chat?
If you want to get to work on MT quickly, I'd reccomend using all that money I have and buy a bunch of Gondor rock from a stonemason. You can practiacally buy Minas Tirith with all that money. I also have (or had, I may have misplaced it) a good architectural design for the city, and I could try and find a way to get it to you if you like.
KingTotalWar wrote: No the money is what didn't get saved, and come on dude, me build MT by myself?! You know I'm not good at building. Also we defeated mordor today and annexed DA.
That's pretty good! Who was the king of Mordor? And with DA, you'll be pretty OP with those Swan Knights, especially since you don't have to worry about Black Uruks. I'd suggest an invasion into Near Harad, it seems as though your new general is pretty good, and with those Swan Knights, they can't stop you.
I don't know who all is a good builder in Gondor, so good luck with MT
Maybe e_0_s could help you with Isengard, once he claims. He is apparently planning for this afternoon, but there will probably be no staff on as usual. Anyway, if e_0_s does claim and does attack, if you helped him, and if he got Rohan to fight, you could probably destroy them. e_0_s's plan for war is basically win one seige agains the enemy capital right away, and then play defense the rest of the war. From what I have seen of his city, it has decent defenses, and he apparently is going to add more concerning defense.
Or, you could just wait and see if Isengard disappears again. They always do. Whenever a new faction arrives on the scene and makes everyone think they're the big bad guys, they disappear. Happened when b3ngaan claimed Mordor. Happened when Gurlakdar claimed Isengard, and from what little I have heard from e_0_s, when robinvandeeren claimed Isengard the same thing happened, but on a slightly smaller scale.
Plus, most of the people in Isengard are probably noobs, because all the noobs tend to rush to the faction that just claimed, or to the faction that has good units. Isengard fits both of these requirements. This can be seen with the past history of Mordor (when b3ngaan claimed), and with Isengard.
Eos gets pissy every time we talk to him. Got tired of his crap, tepel and I roasted on him and he rage quit, next day he came back and tried getting the last word. The only reason he wants to attack someone is he "wants to make his mark as king before it's too late". Rohan can't help and I'm not going to help eos go on pointless assaults. Why? Uruks are at war with Rohan and we all know that Gondor is next. I'm not about to help eos attack dunland on account that he simply wants to attack someone. You are right about Isengard though, they're all noobs but when they're wearing Uruk armor and gear it doesn't matter near as much.
e_0_s wants to attack someone because he will be leaving the server come late spring/early summer due to life. He won't be back on ever after that. He wants to make his mark, and do something that will define his rule and what he did as king. Like, people will remember a conqueror and a victor, or a great diplomat or something, more than a king that doesn't do anything. You should know this all too well: people used to see you as the Steward who lost to Harad, because that was the main part of your rule (well, unfortunately, it kind of is for most people. Obviously, you did more, but people think of that usually). e_0_s doesn't want to be forgotten. And as much as he can be annoying, just don't keep on being rude to him. I care about him, and I won't stand for you or whoever being a dick to him. That said, your roast was probably just and deserved, but just want to tell you that.
Anyway, do you think the staff would notice if I got a new account and tried using it? The staff can apparently see what computer the player is coming from and all that, by checking the IP address. Which is downright scary, considering once you know the IP address and some binary, you can basically hack into that computer.
Unless you show signs of being crafter, they won't think you're crafter. Also, I understand why eos is desperate but he's going insane with it. He's going to tear what little people he has left and destroy any alliances.
Also, if anyone calls me the Steward that lost Gondor they're going to get their ass whooped because Gondor has gone from 1 to 4 biomes in 2 days. (We made a deal with harad to split harondor between our rightful halves)
I talked with him last night, and he dropeed plans for war, and now wants to make Dorwinion just a strong economic nation. He even wants to do a loaning system where, if another faction needs money, he can loan it out, with interest of course. He just kind of said screw DOME, who cares about war, whatever, imma just do something with economics. Not in those words, but something like that. And voilá, now you have a plan for growing the economy, and making Dorwinion beautiful and civilized, no war involved whatsoever.
For alliances, he doesn't hate you. He told me you are incredibly condescending and patronizing towards him and all of Dorwinion, and he hates that. He said if you would talk to him "decently", he's fine with a coalition or whatever.
That was what your legacy was, but its not anymore, obviously. Before you claimed, and possibly in your early stages, that's what people thought of you as. Now that you are growing to be an empire, they see you differently.
Give him some more chances to prove himself. Now that his plans have all changed, I'd renew your chances for him to redeem himself. He has always wanted an allegiance between Gondor and Dorwinion, and he does not hate you, though it may seem like it. Always be open to the guy... he can surprise you.
If I attacked harad Umbar, harad, DG, and gundabad would all declare war on me, and now there's a much larger plan in play that I've found out about since tepel joined us. Coco plans to annex the half trolls, Mordor, and Rhun to his side, effectively giving him all of South West Middle-Earth. The thing is, the plan could work. Amphion will try and claim Rhun, the Mordor people are for it. The only threat to cocos plan is the soon to be superpower of Gondor.
So, Tepel joined Gondor? Or i am missing something?
If Amphion takes Rhun (or if anyone takes Rhun), will you help me if they attack Dorwinion? If i work fast, I can probably finish the build in a month or so, and claim sometime after that. I fear that if, by that time, Mordor will have already claimed (from what I know, they own Barad Dur now, and just need approval from the admins), and since they hate me, they would instantly take me on in war. Now that I am aware of Amphion's operations in Rhun, I am now fearing much more than I was before. Many of the dorwinion cities have absolute garbage defense, mine being the only well defended one.
While I do think that Gondor will be significantly stronger after Beta 29, Umayr's plan would get so many people on his side after he owned the Southeast (because of the massive amount of people required to claim those biomes), he could probably wipe you out completely. In addition to that, Gundabad and Umbar are strong factions that could assist with devastating effect. I am not worried about DG (except for Mirk-trolls maybe) because (other than Akorahil) they don't have very good PvPers from what I can tell.
I am aware Gondor has many allies, but if his plan of domination is complete, he could easily destroy our allies due to sheer numbers. In addition to that, Umayr's biased past has shown that he could probably make everything illegal no matter what. I don't know if he has become less biased by now, but time will tell.
I am sorry for such a hopeless view on the current situation, but if your reports are true, then there is an awful good reason to be fearful of destruction.
I already gave u my skype, but it is anorienisthebest55. Can I have yours? Crafter wants to know it too.
Also, could u please get Pleargirs coords saved? I have never bothered to get a Facebook, and the mods don't seem to like it if I ask them to do it right then and there in chat. If I get the chance I will probably ask them to, and hope they don't tell me to take it to Facebook. Thx on behalf of arvedui.
So, did Tepel join gondor? Don't get mad, but u never answered that question....
Texted you on skype, if you can get the coords from Pelagir then I'll send them to the FB page, I don't have time to go and find everything he has in the build to know how far to dig and all that, I have a war to prepare for.
I will be leaving for a trip to a lake with some friends (including Arvedui) on Sunday the 24th (tomorrow). So, I won't be back on until Thursday.
If war does come, you can send me a Skype message (the computer that is powerful enough to play Minecraft LOTR is my desktop that doesn't work with Skype for some reason, but the one that I use Skype with is my laptop, which I may bring along)
I apologize. I really hate that stupid Akorahil guy, but it's not like he can really do much. He has been here for a week or less, and has never spoke to Umayr. Harad also can't counterattack us, because as soon as people join to start helping, the good factions will overwhelm them. Besides, u never told me to keep it secret until now. Unless there is something I am missing this doesn't seem like the end of the world. On the other hand, it was pretty stupid of me to tell I admit.
I know this'll trigger u, but at the end of the day, it's just a video game
There's a thing called common sense! Did the Japanese tell the Americans that they were going to bomb Pearl Harbor? No! Because they weren't retarded! Number one rule in war is that you don't let your enemy know they're going to attack. Akora isn't the one at fault here, he supports Umbar, your at fault for blaming our plans in public chat! Now the whole damned server knows which means it's only a matter of time before coco finds out. Also youn then went on to say that you wouldn't help us -__- now idfc about the past twenty times you've skipped out on Gondor because you were either scared of Mordor or that we didn't need more people, but when you say you'll help an ally then go back on it that's unacceptable.
When I said I wouldn't help you, I don't know what I was thinking. I just wanted to end the conversation. I lied about that dont worry.
Now, I will say this again, Near Harad has threatened us a million times and never attacked. We should just tease this war thing for a long time until people dismiss it as some sort of empty threat, and then we strike a little while after that.
I won't go back on you, I promise, it was purely a lie to end the conversation. I was sick of Akorahil screaming at me for being "not peaceful".
You really should consider my tactic of just decieving people to make them think war is coming, but it doesn't until long after we make the threat. Near Harad has done that millions of times, and it works on you, because you freak out every time they say something like that.
We will find a way out of this mess, but first please stop raging, it makes me lose respect for you.
True but I am always worried, harad doesn't have the power to launch an assault on us thank God and hopefully it stays that way. Gondor has voted for we so we will begin preparations. So basically plan the attacks and train the recruits. We have been stockpiling weapons for some time now. We have the equipment. The evil in the north is of little consequence, I'm the last thing on gundabads mind and DG is weak af. Soon Gondor will stretch from Tharbad to Abrakhan!
Nothing is certain yet (and it'd be great if you have Skype btw) but we know we will attack the desert, their bases are weak as are their people. Our main attacks will be focused on Musabs base, we'll attack that as much as we can and then for the final battle attack Abrakhan (sinces it's a requirement). Gondor has around 7 active people now I think, idk I've been gone for a week. Our first move must be to do recon on their cities.
You have talked to me many times about rejoining Gondor? I must ask, what is the desperate need? You seemed to have denied the stregth of Mordor and Near Harad, but today you said that "evil was rising all around Gondor". So, what evil, and how much of a threat is it to Gondor?
I can rejoin if you really need me to, but we have a king, and I can aid if I must.
I do need you, 2 of my commanders just went on vacation, Mordor is weak now but it will rise, and half the gondorians are idiots. The only competent people I had were you, my commanders, Angbor(who also left), and sideus. All the evil factions are allying with one another, that means if we try to siege one they all come to aid and vis versa. Now I'm all for aid from allies but it's better for your actual faction to be stronger, allies cans only send 4 people to aid but if you already have 5 online from your own fac you now have an army of 9 people. Yes evil may have good units, my biggest worry is a hoard of black urks, ologs can't even get inside half our gates, especially not mine. But each person can bring 10 troops, so even if it's a noob they are still adding to our army. But your not a noob, your actually good at this game. That's why I need you, I need expierenced people to lead the armies of Gondor. I'm sure you have more expierience than I with fighting Mordor for the only people I fought in open war during my reign was harad, I know how they fight, but not how Mordor will fight.
Yeah I have a ton of cobble that I can smelt for you, I'll be on in probably an hour and a half, been working out in the heat all day I want to go home and get a shower. I also just checked the updates page and found out that Mordor is getting Minas Morgul, I guess it balances out since we get Lossonarch but I doubt Minas Morgul gets anything super special.
Can you hold amphion off?, i will be back Monday or Sunday.... so after that if Glorfindel takes rivendell, i probally joins back to gondor. Duilin the ranger of ithilien one of my rp characthers that have't died. Amrothos and Ereknbrand being dead, ..... and Elrohir probs in exile if rivendell gets taken by Glorfindel....
Amphion cannot be trusted and anything he says is a lie, faramir is making it sound like everything is going to shit but I don't think it's that bad. Amphion has no Gondorian supporters, faramir said that arnor and the dwarves support him but I doubt that, Gondor has enough allies that if the dwarves and arnor attacked us all of middle earth would be thrown into war. Amphion is still demanding Cair Andros and he has the audacity to ask for his old job back after the things he pulled. I was going to ask my commanders about it but I think I'm just going to banish him.
After our dear Glorfindel banned the Rivendell folk, i fled to gondor, i hope i can help i mean i helped again'st that Amphion. Ummm i am Duilin , which was one of my Rp Characters and i am now a Mercenry of Gondor for the Time.
I read your first message, you and any of your people are welcome in my city, there is plenty of room. As for the other Gondorians, who are they, do they have support, do they have builds. I will get on soon as I can but my comp is messed up. I have to redownload everything cause all my stuff got deleted when I updated to Windows 10. We must not let Gondor be torn apart in a civil war. I'll be on soon as I can to adress it and put you and your men on my banners,nor you'd rather build homes outside the city that's fine, I'm making a road for that very purpose.
Good, I see a place forming for you in the restored regime. The to get these usurpers back on my side, if they refuse they will be considered traitors and enemies of the state, when I re-establish my kingdom they'll be banished for treason.
I have Some.. Well news.. bassicly this guy called monkey is amassing followers so right now all the Moldur and crafter forces united to help fight them Crafter agreed that we can eliminate all others who try to claim until its done to just you and him I was wondering if you could give me diplomatic power to help make more of these decsisions Ill contact you more as soon as I can
I hearby give you permission to speak on my behalf until I return, just don't go starting any wars, crafter and I are friends and once it's down to the 2 of us it's just a race and that's fine, more like a friendly competition. But this monkey person.....sounds like someone not loyal to the true lords of Gondor, Arvedui and I are both former Stewards (even though he was only steward for 3 days). Usurpers will not be tolerated.
My internet is messed up, I'm almost out of data (cause I got scammed I think) I won't get new data till the 16, I can get on tomorrow and try to adress things but I can't be extremely active for a while, if we need to make a council then we can, if only to shutup pineapple.
Alright the situation with pineapple is dire he joined the Royal Army but his men think hes going to be in the Elections (he Has more men then you and Crafter combined) We have to find reason why he cant btw I BETTER BE A LORD AFTER THIS xD
Well I have good news and Rlly bad news. Pineapple stoped running and is now supporting crafter with ALL HIS MEN!!!!!!!! Not sure how your going to win a election unless you staright up claim the throne
Deliver them this message from me: (read as if it's a letter or anouncment and your a herald) There is no election and there never was an election. I am the one rightful steward. (I'm the only was that was an actual Steward crafter doesn't count he was steward for like 2 1/2 days). The Royal Army is the people loyal to the throne or the rightful ruler that's what it means. Any who oppose that rule is a traitor and will be treated as one. Anyone who wants to join the Loyalists(Royal Army) will be welcomed back as brothers and be given full rights as Gondorians. Immediately following my claim we will have a meeting to create a council and asign its members, we will also give out land. All I know for sure about command structure is that crafter will keep Lebinnin and pineapple will be given a seat on the council. Only if he and crafter stop this non sense about election and over-claiming, this has gone on far to long guys. (crafter said he'd support me, clearly that's changed). I don't want a civil war or kin slaying, let us not repeat the faults of the Sons of Feanor. Gondor has never been strong but if we stop all this petty squabbling here and now then we can bring about a new Golden Age and perhaps destroy evil once and for all. I plead to all of you my brothers, stop this now, stop the usurping, kin slaying, and betrayal, it's exactly what our enemies want, and we are playing right into their hands. With dark powers at our doorsteps the last thing we need to do is quarrel amongst ourselves. I will be on soon as I can to adress you all in person.
Anything in () is for you, not for them except the thing about the Royal army. You will be a lord like you asked. If things go south we will retreat to and finish my fortress in the Forodwaith.
