A Rome: Total War battlereport series:

Yes, operant word there being series. I tried to do a series once before, but I'd rather not talk about it. I've had this game for a while, but the demands of 16 credit-hour school and 30-hour work weeks have kept me quite busy for the last few months. Enough with the excuses though: I've delivered, right? Bout fuckin' time.

This time I'm experimenting with a bit of a story thing, even though I'm not much of a fiction writer. I haven't written any fiction, as a matter of fact. I began this as a typical LN report, with a traditional battlereporting style. I realized almost immediately that this wouldn't do it justice. So if any of you writers out there have suggestions as to how I can improve this (.praetor, kane, dagomar) -- which I know I can -- please let me know.Thnx GW!

If, on the other hand, you just want to say hi, you can do that as well: HI!

My E-Mail Addres. Please be kind, I try to be kind to you.Karma!

Some special notes and thanks. First, this report weighs in at a hefty three megabytes. Those that had known me for my low bandwidth bible before, I'm so sorry to have flipped on you. But get with the times man, even Dagomar has high-speed now! Second, I'd like to give many thanks to ZerG~LinG and the warsmith for giving free battlereport templates for the good of the order. It's much appreciated. Finally, the makers of fraps deserve a big thanks in this report. It's screen capture utility has proven itself able to any PC battlereport, and may prove its worth time and again for any prospective reporters on games lacking a rapidly responsive screenshot key (or those that can only hold 100 shots).

So, there you go. Click the picture to go to the report, if you haven't figured that out. I hope you enjoy it. Please leave a comment too, they mean a lot to me. You mean a lot to me. (my ego)

Oh, and I almost forgot...


Congratulations, BR.COM! It's been that long, I know! We should make this a tradition or something. Make a big deal out of every 6000th report. Have some baloons.This is all part of my balloon fetish, really
And, in keeping with four years of another tradition:And no, I don't mean hidden text you fool.

Yup, thats me, LuckyNewbie:P, aren't I cute?
