Silmarillion
EfeKaracar wrote an article for the story competition in which you can hand in stories to be worked in into the mod by the developers. Also some Orcish Voices and Heraldy Icons have been done.
You can read more about the Story Competition here.
For the Orcish Voice lines go here (can't embed the video at the forum)

TLD Overhaul
I wrote a little article about the upcoming patch for TLD Overhaul and the content which can expected at it. You can find the full article here:

Short summary: The upcoming patch will set TLD Overhaul to version v1.8.3L. It contains bugfixes reported from the former version as well as the for now final overhauled version for Mirkwood. Trolls and Wargs got a first overhaul now too and some other little work has been done. With the patch the mod will be equivalent to TLD nightly patch r3217, so pretty much uptodate.

Dusty Breeches
A full set of armor (all body parts) should be 5-15K triangles and weapons 1-4K, based on what in the game right now. Armor is animated, so it should be modeled using quads. Weapons (except maybe bows, which bend) can probably be modeled using tris if you want, since they don't deform (although watch out for shading artifacts if not using quads)

Armor is composed of hands, feet, torso, head, and cape/scarf/shoulder. Each should be their own object when exported. Weapons are composed of handle, pommel, blade, and guard, each their own objects, to conform the weapon crafting system.

Based on models exported from the game, you need a male and female version for torso armor and perhaps a version of each with the forearms removed/shrunk to allow for hand armor that covers the forearm. If you are using a high poly to low poly workflow, I would suggest just focusing on the high-poly models until you have the mod tools. Thats about all I can think of
