  1. Re: Writers' Study Yearly Awards 2018-2019 - NOMINATIONS THREAD

    Nominating just three per category is really difficult, there were plenty of others who deserve a nomination. I hope we'll get more nominations soon! :)

  6. Re: To earn a Kingdom: A Northern Dúnedain Narrative - Divide and Conquer V2.1 [UPDATE - 12/10/2019]

    Right from the first line, your chapter hammers home the urgency of the Company's journey and their tiredness and tension as they watch for signs of their foes. (I wonder if putting speech in bold...
  7. Re: [Diablo II AAR] The Misadventures of Diabolical Amazons

    It's great to see you Maltacus! If Episode 40 ½ means what I think it means, congratulations! It sounds like the Amazons are as fearless as ever and that they're getting suspicious of this mysterious...

  10. Re: Written in Sand (Nabataean AAR for EBII)[updated: Sep 30]

    It sounds like Tharin instinctively likes and respect Mun'at. I hope they'll get the chance to talk further - but I wonder if their goals can be reconciled with each other.

    Welcome back! The mixture of playfulness and threat among those lurking in the shadows adds mystery to your poem.

  21. Re: Recommended factions for the Great Campaign Mode if one wants to have an easy start

    Welsh Dragon's recommendations and advice are excellent. As Welsh said, the AI factions are unlikely to land in the British Isles (I've seen it happen, but it's rare). The strategy of going into...

  31. Re: Wars of the Gods Ancient Wars- Uniting Germania! (Lugii)

  34. Re: What playable faction do you normally choose in the Rise of the Republic campaign?

    Yes, partly for that reason, and partly because starting on the edge of the map makes it easier to limit the number of wars you need to fight at one time.
