Party Wrapup

by | 2/11/2007 22:35 PM

The party's over now. The sounds of bowstrings firing and the swords clashing have now stopped. But don't be sad, because we had one great forum party.

The latest forum party concluded earlier today, and it exceeded all expectations. Many forummers turned out to play their favorite game, and there are many pictures and tales in the party thread.

The success of the party means that soon you will be seeing a regular schedule of forum parties. Stick around to see when the next one will be!

Roman Party

by | 2/8/2007 20:43 PM

In an effort pioneered by our awesome community, we here have decided to once again draw the battle lines and prepare for war! For the first time in quite a while, we will be holding a forum party. If it's successful, you can look forward to attending a forum party for Rome: Total War on a regular basis.

The time it will take place is February 11th at 2 PM EST (7 PM GMT) until whenever the excitement dies down.

Be sure to check out the party thread if this is your first time or if you need a refresher!

If you're interested in playing some Medieval 2: Total War, you can visit Medieval 2 Heaven. They will be holding their party on the 10th.

PS: No, the forum party thread is still "Holy Roman" ;)

The Fourth Age: Total War - Forth Eorlingas Released!

by | 2/5/2007 15:33 PM

The Fourth Age: Total War - Forth Eorlingas modification for Barbarian Invasion has being released! It's an expansion of the highly acclaimed The Fourth Age: Total War – Corsair Invasion, set in the LoTR universe, which itself featured in both PC Gamer and PC Action magazines, who dubbed it "impressive."

apocalypsis, one of the mods designers says...

Our aim with FA:TW is to accurately portray the lands and peoples of Middle-earth as we think they existed approximately two centuries into the Fourth Age. ‘Forth Eorlingas’ is a provincial campaign encompassing a little less than half of the full campaign map, in which players can choose to play the Kingdom of Rohan, the Chiefdom of Dunland, the Reunited Kingdoms of Arnor and Gondor, the Chiefdom of Rhn, or the Empire of Harad.

Check it out on our forums here!

Amendment to HG Moderation Policy

by | 2/4/2007 14:29 PM

HG has made a change to moderation policy. According to Zen, we have:

Retired the parole system:

Members currently permanently banned with parole pending in the future will be eligible for parole; members permanently banned from now on will remain permanently banned. Parolees who incur an offense will be permanently banned.

Since this means less chances are available, I suggest everyone takes the time to re-read the Code of Conduct.
