Sepia Joust IV- Voting is now open

by | 9/30/2010 1:41 AM

Quills and sepia have etched wonderful runes upon our Magical Glass Curtains, giving us insight into foreign worlds and glimmers into what is to come. The time of etching has now ended. Thou mayst peruse the glorious tales here.

If thou does wish to make known thy opinions, or otherwise give comments upon the tales, thou may do so in this scroll of comments and discussions.

All are encouraged to cast their votes, to help the Community decide which entrant shall emerge victorious. This can be easily accomplished by affixing the runes depicting the entrant thou does feel deserving of hearing the Horns of Victory upon this scroll. This scroll shall remain open for a fortnight, closing promptly when the fourteenth day of October has passed into history.

Two New Articles for the Glory of Carthage

by | 9/27/2010 10:15 AM

Our articles database continues to grow rapidly in all directions. Today I am proud to announce the publishing of two more, both of which coincidentally concern Carthage.

Primus Julius has written a strategy article: an alternative opening moves guide for Carthage entitled Ruling the Western Mediterranean. Feedback can be left upon this thread. If you must criticise, be constructive.

Punic Hoplite wrote up an article on the Mercenary War months ago but we all forgot about it. Now finally I present it to the wider world. Comments and praise can be left upon this thread. Negative feedback is of course forbidden unless carefully disguised as useful.

Dark Ages: Now Discussing

by | 9/16/2010 8:43 AM

Hail, noble warlords. Our Community Modpack idea for the Dark Ages seems to be well received. To which end it has been granted its own forum.

Now under discussion are the factions Romano-British and the Franks.

Feel free to drop by and lend a hand, or merely pass on a comment or two about the development so far.

It is a Community Mod, so everyone is welcome!

Roma Surrectum II Released!

by | 9/4/2010 15:14 PM

Roma Surrectum II, a highly-anticipated complete overhaul of Rome: Total War, has just been released. Featuring such improvements as an all-new graphics system including previously-unseen features like bloom, completely redone unit selections, new music, and a very advanced scripting system, this mod is one of the most complete total conversions to cover the Roman timeframe. So what are you waiting for? Check it out here now! One caveat, though: you will have to make a copy of your entire Rome: Total War folder to install this mod, as it is not modfoldered. We have a guide to doing that available here

New History Article: Armies of Ancient Africa

by | 9/3/2010 8:08 AM

Kahotep has again turned his thoughts to the ancient peoples of Africa to bring us this article, looking at three of the most well-known African tribal armies from various periods of history and all parts of the continent, and comparing and contrasting them.

Positive feedback can be left on this thread. So too can negative, but it would be most wise to disguise it lest you be thrown to the crocodiles...
