Added the "Legion of the Black Serpent" Mercenary Unit, will be only available for the High King of Harad, and will give a powerful strength of heavy cavalry and Mumakils. Will allow players to simulate the Black Serpent in the battle of Pelennor Fields, for exemple.
The commandant of this legion will gain automatically the nickname : "the Black Serpent".

A look to a new feature :
An order (Mercenary company) that you can form as the Emperor of Harad : the Legion of the Black Serpent. Will give you access to a powerful mercenary company, and will give you the ability to nominate some of your children in it. Here's a look at the creation events :

- Now, the Legion will be always in open elective succession
- After the creation, the Black Serpent will ask the older of Dunamrun to settle in this county, and will create the "Fortress of Kadar Sulâdan":






Any suggestions on flavour events are welcome! Okay

I like it. I just recommend switching the piety bonus to prestige, taking into account the intended overhaul of piety.

Really classy. Harad will get far more popular xD

Yeah, that's the goal Smile
I want to expand this mechanic for some other great "military orders" of Middle-Earth, like for exemple the Swan Knights of Dol Amroth, the Rangers of Ithilien, maybe a "Iron Guard" for Dwarves. I hesitate for some of them, i believe that the rangers of Ithilien could be interesting at least.

Would look great with some more Harad focused event pics, like these maybe?

Also, what about the Lokê ("Dragon") troops of Rhûn? They would be badass...

Oh yeah, event pictures are WIP. I'm searching some military ones too Smile

Didn't heard before about any Lokê units in Harad? Where did you find this?

Book-wise, none. It's fan-fic mostly based on the looks of the Easterlings in the LotR movies.

We don't have to buy their lore explanation, but it's not at all implausible that the Easterlings have elite troops to match those of Harad and Gondor.

The "Dragon" designation could be simply derived from the looks of their shiny scale armor...

Some problems I noticed
-Duplicated send son decision (send_son_decisions + black_serpent_decisions)
-Black Serpent form decision is still there after forming it
-Problem with tooltip for event options

I just fixed the trait issue. Was caused by a wrong code in the interface file : "GFX_black_serpent" instead of the good version "GFX_trait_black_serpent".
