I've recently implemented a variable 404 message on RTWH. You should be able to see some of the variations by reloading this link several times.

http://rtw.heavengames.com/nonexistentpage

What we're looking for is some good messages to add to the list we have so far. Post your ideas in this thread and if we like them and they are suitable, then we'll implement them.

Our current messages are:
'As Augustus once said: "Server- give me back my site pages!"',
'The page you are looking for cannot be found. The Carthaginians have sacrificed it to Baal.',
'This page has been trampled by an elephant. It probably won't be dug out of the ground any time soon.',
'The page you are looking for is now held by Huns.',
'This page was involved in the civil revolt in Corduba, and as such, has been executed by your men!',
'This page has been whisked away by the Amazons, to an unknown fate.....',
'This page has been taken by the Brutii during the Roman Civil War.',
'Senate Mission: Find this page.

Reward: This page.',
'This page has been eaten by a Yubtseb Elephant.',
'This page has been bribed and now belongs to another faction.',
'This page has been felled by an assassin's blade.',
'This page has been lost in Germania. We suspect it has been sacrificed.',
'This page has decided to become a Vestal Virgin.',
'This page is currently doing military service. Please check back in a few years.',
'This page is with Legio II in Britannia. Don't expect it back.',
'This page is currently under siege.',
'There is nothing that remains of this page. It has been sacked, and the ruins are held by steppe tribes.',
'This page is routing, and oblivious to the world.'

Please note the following rules:
1. All submissions must comply with the CoC.
2. All submissions must relate to the game or the era covered by RTW.
3. No inside jokes or references to forumers.

Good luck and get your thinking caps on!

"This page has been taken on a Scythian Horse Ride." (I dunno if that constitutes as an inside joke or not, so here's another one)

'The Morrigan has taken this page and devoured it.'

Great stuff, guys.

I left out a couple because they were a little too obscure but great ideas all the same.

A n00b box was made upon this page, unless you have onagers you can't read it.

This page has been eaten by a Yubtseb.

Yep, it's true, having no sig is boring. But so is this one. Which makes my point... relatively pointless.

This scroll has been bribed and now belongs to another faction.

This scroll has been felled by an assassin's blade.

This page has been lost in Germania. We suspect it's been sacrificed.

This page has decided to become a Vestal Virgin.

This page is currently doing millitary service. Please check back in a few years.

This page is with the II legion in Brittania. Don't expect it back.

"This page tried to take on the Romans in a civil war.

The Romans won."

It's a little obscure though, how about.

"FoW is on, you can't see this page yet."

Victory!!!
you have won the game. congratulations!
(but you haven't patched up to version 1.5, so you can't play on.)

"Please patch up to 1.5"

"Only the dead have seen this page" - Plato

"Against this page, it pays to be prepared"

"It is the noblest and safest thing for this page to be visible for one spirit"

"The internet, as the saying goes, is full of false pages"

"Only the brave enjoy this page"

"Pagina Iacta Est" this page is thrown....away

"This page is hidding in a wooded area" (or something like that)

"Venit Vidit Abiit" It came, it saw, it left (the page)
(this was an insription that was found in Brugge, Belgium, after the war against Willem van Oranje)

"This page is currently under fire"

"This page has rebelled to another faction"

"Error"

This page can hide anywhere. Which is a bit of a problem.

This page has run amok. I'm not sure where too.

This page has joined a band of Naked Fanatics so I'm not going to try too hard too look for it.

Isn't it "It is the noblest and safest thing to be visibly animated by one spirit"?
