Ballista Stunning Blow

Someone found this out shortly after the demo was out. It makes defending sieges a wee bit easier when you can knock out the enemy's catapult and ballista in a couple of hits. Can Barbarians knock down castle walls with this?

Artifact Set Bug

What if you Memory Mentor your Expert Enlightment away and then pick it up again later, will you get the skill bonuses a second time?

Tribes Video and Shots

The video had an angel with a neutral unit aura (instead of the haven one). Still i'm a bit sceptical about the mixed neutral stacks and the hyped farm-razing ability of the orcs. They seem like special scripts appearing in the campaigns only. But otherwise TotE seems a good purchase(assuming it's f...

The *Old* Clothes of Isabel

For a polygon she's actually quite pretty (unlike the one in the game which looks just too smug to be a good guy). I still dont get why they changed so much good stuff to inferior models (Cleric, Treant, Dino-Riders etc).

Got 263 this time. It seems that there's some amount of luck needed for getting higher scores since the patterns are all random.

Funny little game. But why are all those cute bunnies hanging out in a zombie-infested graveyard?

I only got 190 points BTW.

They're majestically screwed up! I love it!

The one with Veyer's head would actually be a good Chaos Sorcerer in my Warhammer army. Thanks for that evilp.

Tribes of the East Boxshot

I encourage women to wear shoes. >Well I understand some women like that sort of treatment...< Statements like this are kinda infallible, since there's ~7 billion people on this planet. On topic though, the cover is like i expected: guy and a castle. Not much reason to do anything different anyway.

Tribes of the East Previews

Warcraft being as popular as it is, it doesn't take more than the concept of non-evil orcs to get people scream "rip-off" These are still the previews and we don't know exactly how the story goes, but if the leader of the orc rebellion (Whats'isname) was raised by humans, and his closest friend dies...

It is more likely a dragon, that i agree, but it seems to have feathered wings and chest, could be the dark elves' mockery of a griffin emblem.Also the riders are nobility IIRC so it's not out of character for them to display heraldry (along with brain-boxed dinosaurs).

Me too. The hooves look a bit too small for the lumbering brute anyway. Besides, the Dino-Rider lost it's shield and trident, as seen in the preview screenshots.(IMO the emblem on his shield looks almost like a griffin) Of the others, i really like the centaur, it's nightmarish heritage is quite cle...

but why would you do that? just turn off the games music and put up windows media player 11 in the background. sure, it wouldnt put up a specific track for specific occasions, but why go through all that other trouble?

About them gremlins... Yes, it's possible to have 141 gremlins on day 4 if you start with Havez, he starts with nearly 80, then hire another wizard for ~25 more (not Razzak though, he starts with golems only), then recruit 20 from your town and 20 from an external dwelling, assuming one is availible...

I recall Elrath.com (http://deep.phpwebhosting.com/~paradox/) had such mods, but i'm not sure if they work with 1.5 and 2.1 (without some tweaking at least)

Necropolis Alternate Upgrades

@Orfinn: Well, my point was that the Banshee's gender isn't distinguishable from the model, and while it's true that a human skeleton's gender isn't distinguishable, the model is near identical to the Wraith, which is viewed as a male by default, whereas a Banshee is expected to look a like a woman ...

Necropolis Alternate Upgrades

Most of them are good, but what's with the "Banshee"? It doesn't look female at all, I thought a Banshee was supposed to be a spirit of an evil woman, not Grim Reaper turned gay.The model itself isn't bad though, Nival should just darken the pink parts a bit, maybe take the hood off and call it a Re...

Sure the Renegades were Biara's henchmen in the campaign, but we have to wait and se what happens to them after Biara is defeated. Most of the units are credible to see in the Haven line-up anyway, for example Crossbowmen have new technology, Vindicators use more offensive fighting techniques and Ch...

Tired Imp

Smoky Dog
Stone Succubus
Wooden Horse
Mutated Fire Bug
Old Devil
Heh... These are good. When TotE comes out somebody should make a mod that changes the real names to these(and has DeepPurple Dragon and Electric Elf for Sylvan as well).
