Introducing the Guides & Articles Forum

by | 10/31/2009 4:48 AM

If you take a look at the forum listing you'll see we've opened a new forum. The Guide & Articles Forum is a place to post articles and guides and to expose them to public view and criticism, so that errors and such can be identified and fixed before publishing the article or guide on the Main Site. It can also serve as a place for people to work together on one single article, not just a single writer. This is especially handy for those working on Strategy Guides and Opening Moves.

For a more detailed description of the new forum and the rules & regulations please check this topic. Feel free to leave any comments or suggestions there as well.

I hope to see you all there to submit articles, help improve ones written by others or even start from scratch and write an article in collaboration with your fellow forumers.

Norman Invasion released for BI

by | 10/14/2009 17:16 PM

It was at 9 AM on October fourteenth, AD 1066, that an ambitious Duke from Normandy took his land-hungry forces and hurled them against arguably the best warriors in Western Europe - the feared English Housecarls of Harold Godwinson, King of England...

Palantir, also known as MasterOfNone has just released his latest mod, Norman Invasion, in which players can take the side of either the Norman invadars under William the Bastard, lead the English defence as Harold Godwinson, or play as the Welsh, the Scots or the Norse and take advantage of the chaos to claim Britain for yourself. NI builds on his previous mod, Viking Invasion II, and takes it to whole new levels.

Head on to this thread in our Game Modification forums to find out more, or head straight over to download the mod.
