October 31st — 'Twas the witching hour...
It was the night of 31st October 1998.  The wind was howling, the lightning striking the trees on the hills of northern Bristol.  The night belonged to ghouls and wraiths, who moved silently through the night, undetectable by humans.

Meanwhile, the night was calm in the Caesar III Heaven General Help, Wishes and Comments forum.  Discussion was continuing as it had done for the past 3 weeks.  Nobody noticed a figure slip quietly under the front door, nor did they see it scurry across the floor to the registration area.  Little did people know that life would never be the same again.  Suddenly, a gust of wind rattled the windows.  People stopped discussing the virtues of Lugdunum, and looked at the door to the registration room.  There was some kind of unearthly bright light behind it.  Everybody held their breath, waiting for this new horror to be unleashed.

The door creaked, and then flew off its hinges.  The bright light momentarily blinded all present.  When they could see again, they looked in terror at the figure sitting in the doorway.

"Squeak" said the small golden hamster.  Everybody breathed a sigh of relief, and then went back to what they were doing.

Ok, that was a really silly story, but at least it gets the vague significance of today across.  1 year ago today I registered on the C3H forums.  Amazing what can happen in a year ;).

October 30th — Pharaoh hits the shelves
So they did make the October release after all.  Pharaoh has hit the shelves of some game stores in the US.  Electronics Boutique seems to be the place to be if you want to get your hands on it.

Not sure of what I'm talking about?  Then head over to Pharaoh Heaven to join in the party!

October 29th — Map Editor forum goes into overdrive
It's amazing what a bit of publicity will do.  The Scenario \ Map Editing forum has come to life since I posted about it earlier this week.   Angel ET FLAVIUS want's to know who's creating new scenarios right now, and Bob the Lethargic's top 10 things that make a bad scenario has re-appeared after 5 months off the thread list.

If you're currently creating a C3 scenario and are wondering how you can get it to other people, just send them over to Angel Monty's Monkey, who will gladly add it to the downloads section - yours might be the scen that takes us over the 200 mark!
