Forummers of Total War Heaven

Many articles have been submitted to both M2TWH & RTWH over the years and much effort has been expended by non-staff but us staff are greedy and we want more so we're going to run a wee scheme that will both thank those who have contributed as well as encourage further contribution.

Custom titles
Yes. You heard that right. We will hand out custom titles to people who submit articles.

Here is how it's going to work.
If you submit four articles, you will gain a "tier 1" title.
If you submit seven articles, you will gain a "tier 2" title.
If you submit ten articles, you get to choose your own title.

The titles on offer are:
RTW
Tier 1: Centurion
Tier 2: Legate

M2TW
Tier 1: Ministerialis
Tier 2: Banneret
ETW/Napoleon
Tier 1: Rake
Tier 2: Gentleman


Shogun 2
Tier 1: Sensei
Tier 2: Roshi


This scheme applies for all future articles submitted and is also backdated to include articles submitted in the past that are hosted on our two front pages.

The articles eligible are:
-Strategy or gameplay articles for both M2TW & RTW.
-Modification tutorials for both M2TW & RTW.
-History articles for both M2TW & RTW.
We will also count hosting & presenting the forum awards. For practical reasons, we will not be backdating this beyond the most recent awards (which do count).

We will not be keeping count of articles submitted and it is up to the forumers themselves to keep count of their own articles and contact mods to request their title.

If all your content submitted is M2TW-specific, then you will get the relevant M2TW title. If you have submitted for both games, you get to chose whether you have the M2TW or RTW title.

A couple of pointers...
We're giving out rewards here so we expect any submitted content to be up to scratch. Any articles requiring major correction or amendment beyond html coding or otherwise deficient will not be considered. TwH mods have the final say on this matter and any complaints or issues will be dealt with over email.

Staff are welcome to avail of this scheme for their own submitted content if they wish and there is no issue if anybody wishes to collect their custom title at a later date. This scheme isn't going to run anywhere and there is no time limit as to when you can cash your cheque.

For practical reasons, anybody who qualifies for selecting their own custom title gets one go at picking it so make sure you're happy with it as there are no second chances, unless you feel like submitting another 10 articles!

Feel free to discuss this and if you have suggestions on how the scheme can be improved, let us know.

Magnanimous thanks!

Who was he, who first forged the deadly blade?
Of rugged steel his savage soul was made!
Then slaughter was created, war was born to men,
then a quicker road was opened to dreaded mortal end.
But perhaps it’s not the wretch’s fault we turn to hate
what he gave us to use on the savage children of Hecate?

Terikel has earned his fourth custom title.

This time, he chose "Princeps Senatus", as only a Patrician who had served as both Consul and Censor may be granted this title, and he has done both...

If I wanted to do a video article, would that be okay?

I am not sure.

If it is an article concerning a video, as long as the reference is to something in the general vicintiy of the game or its eras, it should be okay.

If it is a video itself, I am not sure if our system can display it properly. I will have to find out for you and let you know.

I was thinking along the lines of having a powerpoint slide show with narration, and uploading it to youtube so it can be embedded here.

Good news, NJR.

We have a YouTUbe channel of our own. You can make your article, send it to us, we'll upload it and embed it from there.

We can also upload PowerPoint without sound, but I think the sound component is the most important part for your idea, correct?

Terikel Grayhair has finally decided to activate another of his custom titles awaiting usage. He has chosen Interrex as his fifth custom title.

He has yet another two in storage, and is 60% of the way to a third.

Congrats, but personally I think Decemvir is better. It's not like you're taking temporary command here. (yes sir I'll shut up.)
If you submit ten articles, you get to chose your own title.
Please remove this taint.

BTW, how many articles have you done?

I had a free moment and an idea.

Do you know how hard it is to find both at the same time when one is my age?

I used to have that stuff in my profile, but there was simply too much and I had a choice: follow this idea or lose some of my 'history'.

I chose the page.

Deal with it.

Terikel claims Imperator as his sixth custom title.

He now only has 1 in reserve (his seventh), but is one article away from an eighth.

Tryhard, upon completing the Voting for the Tavern Awards, has accumulated over the span of several heavens his seventh qualification towards a custom title, to which he now lays claim. His qualifications totaled five in other heavens- according to their seraphs- and here he had an Awards presentation and now the Voting. Thus seven, and a Tier Two title.

Congratulations, Legate Tryhard!
