New Downloads
Posted by kach on February 26, AD 2009 @ 10:46 PM
There are two recent addition to the downloads section. Asteroid Annie from Goonsquad is a new scenario based on his CBC competition scenario Revenge of the Market Ladies. Goonsquad rates the scenario difficulty as 8 out of 10, so expect to find it quite challenging. If you would like a little more background, you can read his 'Designer's Notes' in the strategy discussion thread at CBC.

The second new file is the completed city Thamugadi from Mihaip - with a population of over 100,000 and culture and security ratings of 100. The screenshots accompanying the download have been resized; you can find the originals in the gallery.
Insanity Rising
Posted by kach on February 14, AD 2009 @ 11:20 PM
Insanity Rising is the latest contest from the AODE at CBC. In the words of the designer:
A contest that will run for 4 weeks, taking 4 game years to complete (and be pretty easy to do so as well). It will answer such burning questions as: what did Jasonus Alexandrus do as an encore after the Labors of Herculaneum? why are the AODE releasing a sequel to a scenario that hasn't even been written yet (well, not quite)? and is it true that one of the characters in this scenario is actually a common ancestor shared by the Daggy Two?

Insanity Rising: second in the Jasonus Alexandrus trilogy and sequel to the forthcoming Twisted Nicopolis. In the dark pastures of Caledonia, no one can hear you bleat.
Sounds like a lot of fun! You can find the contest thread here.
