Lone Wolf Updates » Return of Shadow 9th faction revealed

Posted March 10, 2015. By Radspakr Wolfbane | View Comments


Battle of the 9 Armies


Wait that's not right...
Well you get the idea.
The 9th faction will be Erebor, faction of the shaving adversed.

Erebor has been the faction I've wanted to release most but at the same time it has always been the faction with the largest workload.
Finally Erebor has started progressing enough to be released in the nearish future.


Erebor are a powerhouse infantry faction fielding a large number of strong infantry units for both attack and defence.
Familiar faces will make up the hero list like Gimli, Gloin, Dwalin and King Dain Ironfoot.
Via the spell store other dwarf heroes will also be making an appearance such as Thorin Oakenshield and his ill fated companions.

Breaking with tradition Erebor won't be coming alone they'll be released at the same time as the Strongholds.

Posted February 5, 2015. By Radspakr Wolfbane | View Comments


Return of Shadow Beta 0.2

Download Link


Rivendell is now finally available for play without having to use a game mode code.
The mod now has 7 factions available.
Rivendell plays differently from the other factions it uses a good variety of strong units culminating in some powerful elite units with exclusive upgrades.
As well as the support unit the Lightbearer that can be upgraded to use either Healing, Defensive of Offensive spells.



Beta 0.2 is the first full version release since Beta 0.15 and has a new file structure and updated launcher.
The file size has been reduced as well by trimming as much fat as possible bringing the current size down to 2.5gb from somewhere around 4gb.

A new optional addon is coming soon that will change the look of the game slightly to give a more cinematic look.
The UI has an updated look to match the Return of Shadow theme, even the launcher has been tweaked to match it.

Check out roschangelist.txt for a full list of changes.
Beta 0.2 also includes a small hotfix 0.21 that fixes a few issues I noticed while I was slowly uploading the Beta (it took me about a week to do so).

An installer and old version uninstaller is planned to be released later today.

You can also read the updated manual from the download section.






Lone Wolf Updates » Return of Shadow Patch 0.175

Posted January 8, 2015. By Radspakr Wolfbane | View Comments


Patch 0.175



Download Patch 0.175

Because of a stupid oversight on my part I have to reupload 0.17 as 0.175.

So to make up for that I've added a little something something to the launcher.

Type in Imladris to the newly updated launcher to access a new Game mode the Rivendell Preview.

Also because I'm not as rushed as I was yesterday I'm able to do this release properly complete with the standard promo stuff.

Test mode also includes Rivendell.

The Rivendell preview is as the name suggests a preview.
The faction isn't complete yet so I'm not adding it to the proper release, but you can have a play with it and get a general feel for it.


This patch mostly fixes issues with Dunland but also addresses other issues and updates some things like FX and audio.
