Field of Glory: Empires Giveaway!!!
« on: June 12, 2019, 03:33:43 PM »
OK fellas...given all the interest in this upcoming title from Slitherine, we're going to be running a contest and the winner will get a code to the game!

Gus and I are still trying to sort out the details, but its been proposed that each entrant submit their best Latin name with a brief explanation and the best submission, as judged by GH staff, wins!

For instance...Gus' Latin name might be "Gusingtinius Midgetcato". I'll let him provide a plausible explanation... :crazy2:

Technically, it is, but the explanation has to be plausible... >:D

^Both taken already.

'Gusingtinius Midgetcato'  :2funny:

Oh, and 'your mom thinks I'm cool' - however you say that in Latin.

We think the name must include your forum moniker in some way...

So, for example...SirAndrewD = SirAndrewDysfunctimus Erectus

I think mine is already in Latin.

Hmm, apparently it's Italian.  Sort of the same thing.

My reward is being able to mod with JH and Gus.  ;)  I'll be interested to see who wins.
