    Just what I was thinking. Disable the tech cash-in and change the graphic for an artifact...

    Frodo and Sam ignore ZOCs?

    Actually, cashing in the ring could yield a 'new Dark Lord' victory condition....

    Make it a scenario objective.

    I forgot. Is there a special ability that allows ZOC to be ignored.

    Basically we're building some superhero units.

    Yes, there is an 'ignore ZOC' special ability. I've never used it in all these years, but I see it in the DW all the time.

    As a basic unit, we can give Frodo and Sam as many special abilities as we want. So we can give them the ignore ZOC ability. Also maybe cloaking ability.

    Would cloaking make them too hard for the Mordor faction to catch?

    I'd think so, yes.
    AFAIK there's no ability to see cloaked units in the game.

    Unless you try to enter the square they're in.

    Frodo should have the cargo ability. Escorting an artifact is a pain...

    The AA can move.

    Problem is that a land transport can't be transported by a sea transport and we want to give Frodo and Sam the chance to move via ship or eagle.

    Eagle. Good thinking.

    Eagle might be a pre-defined unit (that is the only way to have an air transport that can attack).

    Is it possible to forcibly upgrade/downgrade units as events in a scenario? Perhaps with multiple versions of each Hero unit, you could simulate different modes (such as upgrading to add the cloaking ability when Frodo puts on the ring).

    Storywise, Frodo doesn't much put on the ring- it makes him more visible to Sauron and the Nazgul, for one thing.

    True... Although there are many times when the hobbits use their elven cloaks to hide from the enemy.

    Yes, AA is perfect for the ring.
    Why do geeks think Halloween and Christmas occur on the same day?
    Because 31oct = 25dec!

    Say z- my build queue is absolutely empty at the moment. Any progress on this project? Now would be a great time for me to take a lick at some of the graphics if you're ready...
