    This is a free for all hotseat using the Broken Crescent M2TW modification, version 2.3.2 (installation instructions below). This will be a lead battles game, meaning one may lead versus enemy (AI or human lead) armies if given the chance, or autoresolve at their own discretion. Sallies from the AI versus human besieging armies are automatically autoresolved.

    "Thorkell why can't I come with you?" Einars' voice was high and uneven as he hurried after his brother. The boy was wiry but thin, he had grown taller this past winter but he was far from the height and strength needed to oar a longship or fight alongside seasoned men. Such were Thorkell's thoughts as he ignored his younger sibling and instead took to inspecting his belt and the strap that would hold his dagger and longaxe.

    "I'm a man already! Please, tell Erikr to let me join the raid!"

    Thorkell continued walking at a brisk pace trough the muddy street, making his way around the occasional hand cart or a fisherman's wife carrying a basket with the day's catch to market. He slowed at Ylfa's stall and grinned to the girl. She was as pretty as Freya herself - tall, slender, blond and with an ample blossom. Her hair was the colour of ripe wheat and now was tucked into a thick triple braid which reached down to her back.

    "Tyr guide your Axe Thorkell, may you bring a fine haul this summer!" she yelled at him and tossed him one of her freshly baked buns. ...

    Welcome back to Tales from the Throne Room, our regular piece on the Org's community of hotseat and RPG gamers!
    (written by Myth and phonicsmonkey, graphics by Quirl and Myth)

    The Throne Room is where we play collaborative and competitive games based around TW titles, including Hotseats, RPGs and Succession games. We currently have a group of 19 active players (and several who come and go) across 5 hotseats, one succession game and one RPG.

    This chapter marks the ending of an era. The retirement of both veteran moderators, phonicsmonkey and Zim, men who have shaped the Throne Room into what you see today, is both a threshold and a reminder to us all to strive to give to the community as much as they have during their years as players and mods. It also marks the ending of previous games, the coming resolution of some but also the prospect of new and innovative games to come!

    Hall of Fame:

    The annual HoF awards came to a close, and the results are as follows.

    SilverShield won the title of Throne Room Champion and was unanimously hailed as the best general of 2011. I congratulate him and I promise the next edition will feature an interview (this edition's interview is a special occasion).

    Cecil XIX won the award for Best Gamesmaster and has good chances of repeating his achievement if he hosts that multi-faction RPG he proposed in the Arena of Kings contest.

    phonicsmonkey won the Best Hotseat award for 2011 despite the stiff competition. Hopefully he will run at least one game for 2012!

    I myself won the award for ...

    Hello everyone, this is my first post to 'The Org' but I have been browsing the forums for many years. I have written what should be a fix for the 800x600/640x480 resolution cap on higher end cards. This should mean an end to the rebooting shenanigans that were previously required. I do not yet have the ability to attach links to posts, but I can provide the fix on request and I will amend this ...
