New Blood for the Heavens

Postby Angelspit » Feb 2 2006, 2:47

<img src="/forums/images/avatars/141617256643de488bf18f9.jpg" align=right vspace=10 hspace=10>With the increase in traffic and the ongoing beta, it's recruitment season for several fan sites, and CH is no exception. First of all, I would like to announce that <b>Robenhagen</b> has been promoted to the rank of editor. Thomas joined Celestial Heavens at the beginning of 2005 to take over Ghostwriter's tasks while he was away. Unfortunately, since we are without news of the former <a href="http://imdb.com/name/nm0933146/">visual effect expert</a>, Robenhagen will be taking over the position left empty. He is a mapmaker and a talented graphic artist, as well as the co-administrator of the Round Table forums.

<img src="/forums/images/avatars/1447033037438837a3ad1b1.gif" align=right vspace=10 hspace=10><b>Kalah</b> joined the news team last month to take over the ForumTalk column, a summary of what's going on in the forums. Those who do not fear the merciless moderator will be happy to hear that he is working on a <a href="http://www.celestialheavens.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=785">secret project near the Campfire</a>. <b>a55a55in</b>, who has been posting a couple of news items already, is on a temporary assignment while his schedule allows it. He is awake while I sleep and vice-versa, so together we won't miss a thing. Beta hacker <b>Bad Wolf</b> is the first person to try our trainee program, and works with <b>igoraki</b>, our staff member of the month, to bring you a series of pretty sections about Heroes V. That's all for now!

Cool - good luck with your new tasks, guys.

You guys are the tops! Looks like CH will be better than ever.

Someday, I'll start writing again. I just need to find a topic where I have something to contribute. Maybe I'll take up doing reviews. In the meantime, if you need any copy editing or rewriting, let me know.

looks like CH tries to increase it's staff once again. Keep ujp the good work! soon, total domination of the homm world will be yours! (just kidding)
I have probably offended you in this post. if you take it too harshly, it's your own responsability. I, for my part, never intended to.

Offtopic - Everyone wants bigger battlefield sizes! Why not use the saveheroes.org site to sign a new pettition so that our voices are heard...

Good luck to the new ones and thanks to you all who give this site a very good aperance:)

For using "Saveheroes" for single project will be wrong. Battlefield is ppice of the interface and the feeling of the game..Betatesters report this...and if programmers don't want to change it, then they have the right.. and will maybe loose on that, but we can't take detail controll:)

He sent me an email more than a year ago, and I haven't heard of him since. He has very serious health problems. I wish I knew what happened.

Angelspit I echo your concerns and wishes, I tested his map ‘The City’ over two years ago and even in that stage of development it was destined to be a great map. It was certainly one of the best if not the best map I had played (and I normally do not play single map games), I hope his health improves and he releases that map for all to enjoy.

I did some of the last test for 'The City', but it's still not finished.

Last time I spoke with him was January 27th ... last year, and I can add to Angelspit's note that he was in no way in a healthy condition. I am very sad to say, that I don't think we'll see him here again.

I actually thought of teaming up with Wimfrits, who also did a lot of testing on 'The City', and see if we could finish his work, but I haven't found the time.

Wimfrits would certainly be a better choice than I, however now that Dragon's Fate is almost complete (by the end of the month, please, please, please), if I can help let me know.
