looking for the eight classical tragedies. Now we've suggested that one of them should
have been The Lost Marketlady, but other suggestions include Elektra, Antigone and
Post your suggestions here.
The selfsame angel is still the object of
veneration by many of the forum visitors. There is still talk of raising a tribute for him

801KB of it, extracted and installed it...old fashioned pixels the size of a planet. Crude
non-anti-aliased lettering, blobby figurines moving across the screen. It is hilarious. I

released the game that started it all off, Caesar I, for free download from their site. It's only 800k or thereabouts, so
it's well worth taking a look to see how things have improved. It's a pretty old
program, and I've seen some people complain that it doesn't run in Win98 - remember, if
you have a problem like that, then Cherub Et Flavius in the Technical
forum would be happy to iron it out.

the Hawk will play.
Let's see what's happening in the Forums.
Somebody... at HGS Main hinted I'm claiming to
have laid low the Roman Empire in person. If I can find that thread I'll
definitely mention it.
The Community forum is running two
different stories and a wonderful thread on the addictiveness of Caesar 3. Here
Priestess Wendoolicus finds penance for the sinners, i.e. those that
stray form the C3 path and comfort for the hopeless.
The Nobel Prize forum's summer thread has
turned into a bit of a booklist. So, if you're suffering from not enough to read, have a
to see if there are any title you haven't read before.
Well, I think Angel Alexander is still
suffering from Traumatic Highschool Movie Disorder, as I could not find a thread even
remotely close to what he mentions... <G>

If you are having problems viewing this page (then
how can you see this<g>?) because of the Java bit at the end, then there is now a
javaless version of this page at http://caesar3.heavengames.com/indexnojava.shtml.
This might also be better if you are on a slow connection and it takes a while for
the java page to load. You won't miss any news - both will update simultaneously
when I upload (clever, eh? :) ).
That concludes today's public service
Or does it? If you are partial to a
trip over to The Dark Side (ie you play Age of Empires from time to time), then there's a
brand new tournament over at Age of

in the Fall of Rome, then click

|July 1st - Oops!
|We resume normal service
this morning after Angel Abelius made a bit of a mistake yesterday by uploading their news
in the wrong place, overwriting my news. Don't worry, the appropriate punishment has
been meted out - I've confiscated their C3 disc<g>. Believe me, it will not
And now on to some
other news. If you are still one of those who hasn't bought C3 in the hope of
winning it in a contest, then now's your chance - the Empire Earth Trade Center has a competition running
where you can do exactly that. Here's what Stasio (webmaster) has to say:
|A news story about a week ago
said there would be an upcoming contest at Empire Earth Trade Center. The time for the contest is now, win a
free copy of the PC version of Caesar 3, the award winning RTS from Impressions/Sierra
Studios. The contest runs from July 1st till July 4th, and you may enter the contest once a day to
increase your chances of winning yourself a copy of Caesar 3. So, quit wasting time and
get signed up.
Back in Heaven, there are
a few things going on in the forums (as
always). I've started a thread in Community
asking where the cheapest
C3 can be bought. If you know of somewhere to get C3 really cheap, then let us
all know and I'll post the results here. Also in Community, the Summer
Campaign Story is going from strength to strength. So, if you like stories, then
feel free to join in.
