Rework the Menu of Mordor

I’m planning on removing redundant menu options that were part of the old animation software no long in use.

It’s time to take a fresh look at Mordor and remove the old icons and imagery that used to hold Adobe Flash interactive content. I’m sorry to see it go, but website animation and HTML5 simply do not work well together. Adobe discontinued the use of Flash across the web in 2019-2020, which means any Flash content simply shows up as a gray box and will not work. You can go HERE to see an example of the problem on this site. The link takes you to a page that used to house our interactive Orkish Beastiary, but now it’s nothing more than an annoying gray box.

Hey everyone, we’re back!

Its been nearly three years since The Land of Shadow.com went dark!

It’s hard to believe so much time has passed. At the time I wrote the last post I was sure I was done with Mordor for good, however some things just won’t die! Mount Doom has once again burst into flame and covered all the lands in shadow! I’m not sure exactly how this new version of Mordor will evolve, but as long as the die-hard fans of Mordor keep calling for more, then I’ll do my best to deliver.

You will need to be patient as I get my sea legs back as captain of this wayward vessel. Stay tuned as I figure out where The Land of Shadow is heading next!
