IT LIVES! You have no idea how happy I am!
One thing tho. Why are you jumping so much between SI and Imperial units? At first I thought that Isengard was using SI as a sign of progress and the rest of Middle Earth was using Imperial to show they are more primitive, but it later went to trash as Ugluk used Imperial. So, what's the deal?

Yay! It's Back! And that last improvement on the recoil guns... I smell tanks coming!

Awesome. You write great war. Love the competent Saruman and the regimented soldier-wargs. Great AU, good see more of it. Definitely enjoy how they're spreading across Middle-Earth, improving the infrastructure as they go. Nice pacing on the chapter, Umbar looks like it will lose hard. Good to have spare engines, definitely thinking ahead.

I am so glad to see you've taken this up again. Looks like the elves are just as OP with a rifle as a longbow. A dedicated elven sharpshooter is going to be utterly horrific.
I've always loved this sort of military sci-fi, from King David's Spaceship and Janniasries to Empire from the Ashes and the Safehold series. And a cross over with Lord of the Rings... It's like several christmases at once!
Looking forward to more (and Mordor).

Very nice chapter.
| wareagle chapter 13 . 8/29/2015
This by far one of the best stories out there, no matter the genre. I'm glad that it has started back up again and look forward to many more chapters.
The pacing is perfect. The characterization is perfect. Everything is perfect. Thank you for your hard work.

Amazing chapter as always. How you work on so many things at once I'll never know.

I REALLY wish that "Battle for Middle Earth 2" or a similar game had a mod for Isenguard that had all these wonderful weapons...
Dang, Sarumon's tech base just keep advancing by leaps and bounds.

Hooray! This fic started up again!

Interesting! 'INS' stands for Isengard Naval Ship I assume. The naval tech especially seems like they are working out the bugs and getting practical experience. Having a steam tug or two nearby looked helpful.
Those Gundabad goblins would be quite irritated to know that they were repulsed by less than a dozen elves.
And any word on Frodo and his friendly werewolf?

This is such a fun story, thank you! I also can't help but feel anxious about the future. Things are going so well, but there are still a number of ways things could go wrong. Really wrong. And the ring is still out there.
| Ellen Brand chapter 13 . 8/29/2015
YAY! I love this fic, and I am SO HAPPY to see it updating again! I especially love how you handle characters being wrong about things without bashing them. And Lurtz is just awesome. :)

Delighted to see the return of this story. Lots of interesting things this chapter.

Fine development of the basic premise. Currently my favorite read. Perhaps you could include some material on coordinating the planning and operations of independent but allied armies with non-identical political agendas? All protagonists want Mordor off their backs, but some may still have rivalries or differing post-war political aspirations that they are trying to line-up in territory,post-war autonomy, or technology development.
In any case, thanks for continuing the fic.
