Please note that the date of the Gold Code Day has been postponed to November 8, and that the deadline has been extended to October 30!

We at Rome: Total War Heaven are pleased to announce, as one of the largest and best Total War Communities, that one of you, the dedicated fans of CA and Total War, will obtain the privilege of playtesting Medieval 2 before your peers at the SEGA Europe HeadQuarters on November 3. Imagine, you'll be one of the very first people of the world to check out the gold code version!

There's one catch, however. Remember that we have only one invite to give away, and obtaining it is no easy task.

Simply put, show us that you deserve to go! How, you may ask?

It is up to you to perform something of startling originality: tell us what you're going to do, how you're going to do it and when you're going to do it. And most importantly, DO IT and report the whole thing to us in this very thread - provide proof that it has been carried out in the form of a sequence of photographs.

MOST IMPORTANTLY: Contestants must be aged 16 years or more as this is the age rating of Medieval 2 Total War. The winner must be able to get to Kew Bridge in London on the morning of the 8th of November.

Entries are to be posted in this thread no later than October 30!


Conditions:

- It must be legal, both in the UK and in your home country if different.

- It must be realistic. No asking the Pope whether another Crusade to the Holy Land is in order... ok, nothing wrong in asking him, but good luck getting by the guards!

- It must be decent. So, sorry, no marathon orgies or other naughtiness that might spring to mind, are going to win.

- No cruelty to animals (or humans, for that matter) will be acceptable.

- Doing stupidly life-endangering stuff won't help you win. If you injure yourself, that's your problem, because we warned you NOT to do dangerous stuff.

- Remember that whatever you do is at your own risk.

- HAVE FUN!

Unfortunately, we can't help with that. Even more unfortunately I have prior engagements, otherwise I'd be there.

*builds trebuchet*

Nah, I'm too lazy to do anything like that. But anyhow, does it have to be related to Medieval Total War II? Or can it be anything original, such as grabbing my skates, and attempting to skate through a crowded shopping mall at full speed? Or say leap off a pier, or play chicken with a train?(Just examples)

Since all of those examples are either illegal in the UK or would get you sectioned, then no. Something original should be allowed, since there isn't any mention of it having to do with M2TW.

Pier jumping isn't illegal. And anyhow, I don't live in the UK, just near it. If I did, wouldn't it be legal for me to kill a Scotsman on a sunday with a longbow? (No, I know there are other laws that would make it illegal)

And since no-one has entered right now, if I do anything it'd almost get me to be the winner. For a legal example, I could say I am building a castle out of my PC Game boxes... Right?(C)

Brilliant, can I enter that as my entry then?

Building a castle out of PC Game boxes. Then I'll take a photo... Must attempt it first of course. *tries*

Edit: Wow this is hard to build. Okay, finished. Uploading pictures...

Okay, here goes.

1).

2).

3).

4).

5).

6).

Okay, that's my entry. That is a lot harder to build than it would look. It fell down shortly afterwards, when my cat leapt ontop of it.

And I have mid-term break on November 3rd. And permission to go to London should I actually win, so woohoo.

Good job, Saranalos!

I do like how you flaunted your Total War game boxes there (just a question out of curiosity, why is it that you have duplicates of MTW and VI?).

Oh I don't have duplicates, that is the box they came in. I simply took them out of it, and used it as a kind of display. And thank you for your compliment, it took over an hour to build since I had to use only PC game boxes, and they needed to be balanced just right.

Hey, that looks good! I was wondering if anyone was going to enter!

Is this a HG only thing or are lots of places offering this? As in, is there 1 HG ticket, and others from other places, or does everyone play for just the one?

Ok never mind then.

Fact is that HG, the Org and TW Center were given one invite ticket each to be fought over by the forumers from respective site in some sort of competition, but HG seems to be the first place arranging such a thing so far.

Hello there,

I've watched this site for a long time, and I just love the help, ideas and general knowlege provided by the countless fans of RTW. Age of empires (1-3) use to be my favorite series of games until I got RTW and BI about a year ago, haven't played many other games since. I feel this is the closest i'll ever get to ancient times. (I'm sure I should have been born prior to 500 years ago). Any how I'm from Canada and don't have the money to get to England. However I'd like to share my pics of my balista/scorpion (you'll understand when you see the pic why it's a combo of teh 2) anyway just since some of you might appreciate my efforts. However it has occured to me that I don't know how to post pics. I shall return with pics when I find out how to post them.

Well to post images, go to www.imageshack.usand host your files there. Then use the code provided in the "Thumbnail for Forums 1" box. I'd I for one would like to see the ballista you made... I've made a few small things myself, but I mean REALLY small. The best one was a working wooden cannon.
