    Cheers TWfan60, there's a few things worthy of the OP! To everyone else (my wide and avid readership I am assured is more than a figment of my imagination) I will do a proper newsbeat update soon. I did write one a month ago but my labors were for naught when I accidentally closed the wrong tab.

    New retiree section, running out of real estate again:

    CA really did split opinions, that day in september. :rolleyes:
    "Raise them, Necromancer. Set brother against brother. Let's give our hosts something worthy of recording in their pathetic book of complaints, shall we?"
    The Queen of Mysteries, on the Book of Grudges.

    Her voice was as rustling silk. "In the darkness I dreamt of you, cousin."
    "Hawk no longer. My wings are dust and bone. I crawl through time now, like an asp."
    "You took my wings, Neferata. You made me crawl. Now I return the favour. Crawl, cousin. Crawl."

    For ease of memory, if we're not talking about cavalry, everything the High Elves have is better than everything the Dark Elves have.

    Given the almost universally acknowledged state of the game on release, it would seem to lend credence to the theory of paid reviews, at least to a suspicious mind.

    There's that Mackles presumptive reasoning at work again. :rolleyes:

    Thanks for stopping by. I promise I will not release any more patches for the game.

    Oh but now this just looks silly with the previous comment deleted! What is this madness!?

    I'm not sure if this is posted anywhere else, but if you actually want to know the rules and units in the game (you know, like a rulebook or a useful encyclopedia) this site is indispensible:

    It's still there? I loved that thing pre-release. Plotting, plotting and more plotting. :D

    The link for the interactive campaign map just leads to a blank white page.
