Descendants of Númenor (MOD)

Upcoming in the next A23-release :wink:

(It needs allot of tweaks though)


So, I’m currently working on the ‘Fountain Guard’ profession :slightly_smiling_face:

The Profession Icon I made:

Fountain Guard Talisman Icon (A02v002b) Small

The Profession promotion works fine.
I haven’t made any changes in abilities or buffs yet, and I think I’ll only make it a single-level profession.

I basically copied the ‘Knight Profession’, and use that as a base (=

But I’ve run into a problem here, (I know almost nothing about .lua files, so I feel a bit clueless here :fearful: ).
The promotion and profession works fine, but I get these two error messages in-game:

Fountain Guard Profession - Error Messages.txt (4.1 KB)

And here are some of the code:

( in don_mod\jobs\fountain_guard\ )


local Fountain_guardClass = class()
local CombatJob = require 'jobs.combat_job'
radiant.mixin(Fountain_guardClass, CombatJob)
return Fountain_guardClass

Here is the line of codes for the profession:

index.json in the Jobs folder

   "jobs" : {
      "don_mod:jobs:fountain_guard" : { 
         "description" : "don_mod:jobs:fountain_guard"

Lines in the manifest.json

	"mixintos": {
	  "stonehearth:jobs:index": "file(jobs/index.json)",

	"controllers": {
        "class:fountain_guard": "file(jobs/fountain_guard/fountain_guard.lua)"

Icon Update;


The ‘Fountain Guard’ profession will be leveled from the ‘Knight’ profession :+1:
(I haven’t worked on the Abilities and Buffs yet)

And I guess I’m going to make the ‘Talisman’ into a promotion letter instead of a shield ^^


Hmmm… I think it’d be interesting to have an event trigger on a knight’s level up to 6 that would deliver the letter from a royal official . :stuck_out_tongue:


-A great idea, that would be a cool thing! ^^ (Though I don’t know how to create events or triggers xD )
I was thinking the King or Queen of Gondor, (equivalent to Aragorn’s Role in the book’s), the one who wears the ‘Crown of Elendil’, could craft/write it (=

To see the Blacksmith hammer up a parchment looks quite odd hehe :sweat_smile:


May be this ornament would usefull… Link for download, i cant attach file for this page.

Awesome ornament design! -And I really like the way you made the stars! :smiley:

I currently have three different designs for the White Tree.
One for the Banners, one I use both for the Towershield and the Greatshield (the two shields on the right side) :slightly_smiling_face:

And the third version (the first shield on the left) is for the Fountain Guard Towershield.
I wanted it to be different from the other two shields, by having the stars on it.

And now when I saw how you made the stars on your ornament, I made a new version and added them to the Towershield -and I like it! Thanks (=
Now all seven starts are there :+1:

Fountain Guard Shield with Stars
(Had to push them in though to make them fit the shield)

I forgot, I have a fourth version of the tree, the one I made for the armor ^^


I don’t understand why is it a “Fountain Guard” ? They must protect the last White tree of Middle Earth, not a basic fountain :confused:

Good question… -I don’t exactly know, but they are also called ‘Guards of the Citadel’, -it might be two different units classes.
But I’ve always seen them as the same, and your right as far as I know, their main duty is to protect the (Dead)White Tree, that later will be re-planet with the last sapling of it’s kind that Gandalf shows Aragorn, before he is crowned (=

Guard of the Citadel

Oh, -And my plans are, that with this MOD, you will start with that sapling in your inventory :wink:


This mod look amazing i love everything this mod have already can’t wait until it fully out so i can try it :smile: :smile: :smile:

I love the idea of starting with the sapling. Our duty would be (among other things) to protect it?

Have fun, Kyth.

May be craft a fountain for sapling?)

Thanks @Kythandra! Positive feedback really means allot to me! I’m glad to hear it :grinning:
It would be great to find a way to give the White Tree some special feature, and give it meaning, and in the same time make it a target for enemies, which also would give it an extra reason for the need of protection ^^

Thanks! -Great to hear you like it! :smiley:
-It is a SWIP(Slow Work in Progress) hehe -but I am working on it! ^^


Absolutely, -that would be something! :grinning:
It will take a while before I get started with that though (=

Maybe if someone makes a ‘Build-Your-Custom-Fountain’ MOD, it could be an awesome supplement ^^

Descendants of Númenor (A23.v0.01.3 Build 1.60) Release!

The Fountain Guard class has been added, and there are a few other updates/changes.

There is an error when promoting your Hearthling to a Fountain Guard.
-If anyone has the knowledge and time, I would really appreciate the help in solving this issue :slightly_smiling_face: :sweat_smile:

don_mod (Fountain Guard Profession Error Message (Build 1.60).txt (4.1 KB)

I haven’t worked on any of the abilities or the buffs for this profession yet, but that will come.

The ‘Outdoor Bulletin Board’ has also been added, (-It dosen’t have a description yet though and the collision shape has to be adjusted too).

As for now, it’s categorized as a Decoration, please let me know your thought’s on that.
Is it better to have it as a Furniture or something else, or is the decoration category fine :slightly_smiling_face:

Also, if you notice any bugs, typos/misspellings or other issues, please let me know :wink: :+1:

( I have an Error-Log in the description where I will add current issues )


So, I wonder… :thinking:

Is there any way to create an entity with a ‘static’ pose to it, manufactured by a craftsman, and which can then be placed in your settlement/town?

I’m thinking more specifically about a creation like this statue;

-If possible, that would be amazing! :smiley:
I would then add this, and other statues to the Mason, -Like the rider statue, that stands just inside the main gates of Minas Tirith! ^^D


Do you mean an entity with a single pose/frame animation effect attached to the model?
Like @BrunoSupremo’s slanted/diagonal minecart rails:

Precisely! ^^
A single-posed entity -So there is hope! :sweat_smile:
Thank you @Stmpnk!

I haven’t tried Bruno’s Mine Cart MOD, but I’ll check it out!
I’ll have to learn how to extract poses properly for StoneHearth from blender too, but I’ve seen that there are a few tutorials around the forum on it :grinning:
