Rome Total War Heaven is proud to announce a partnership with, a fellow Total War fansite. RTWH has a good reputation on the web for its in-depth and detailed content, though the Multi-player side is not as active as it once was. The Org, as they call it, is not as heavy on the content, has a very active Multi-player side. Both have thriving communities of good-hearted forummers.

So what would make more sense than for these two to partner up? forummers will be exposed to our content and community, and TWH forummers looking for matches and hotseat campaigns can hook up with forummers. Both sides complement each other quite well. Everybody wins.
