The Town Crier! Announcements! / A new Triumph to be awarded
« on: October 10, 2013, 10:59:00 PM »
Due to recently reaching the 7000 post mark, comrade_general has now gained enough triumph points to earn his third Triumph.

Other reasons that he has gained the required 300 points are
 - Reaching 6000 posts
 - Mother of Dragons' citizenship
 - Uploading many paintings
 - Will's citizenship
 - The Khan's patricianship
 - Atlantis release
 - Diplomacy (during a linkswap with TWC)
 - WHTW final release

A great well done to CG!

The Town Crier! Announcements! / A third Triumph
« on: October 03, 2013, 04:31:23 PM »
It is my great pleasure to announce that Jubal has now collected enough triumph points to be awarded his third Triumph.

He has done a variety of activities across the website to accumulate the necessary 300 triumph points. These include writing poetry, running for Basileus and being elected as Basileus. Also, Rob and Othko97 being elected as Spatharioi gained Jubal, their patron, 20 triumph points. Jubal's work on Warhammer: Total War and his proposal of various motions to the plaza have earned him a great many triumph points.

Well done to Jubal!

The Boozer / MORE HUGS!
« on: September 03, 2013, 05:22:44 PM »
Friends! Websitemenandwomen!

Your random-weirdo-(or-not)-from-the-internets hugging abilities are once again required! Will you take up the challenge?



Of course you will! :D

Jubal needs hugs! Give him hugs (please)! Lack of hugs makes a sad Jubal; we don't want a sad Jubal. :(

GIVE HUGS TO JUBAL FOR A HAPPIER JUBAL!
