MoTM returns with a fanfare! Today it is my pleasure to bestow this title upon Roxas.
For those of you who do not know - Roxas was previously MoTM in 2008 and can often be found in the community forum asking various existential questions in the LPW or lamenting over Jamie Oliver.

Due to social distancing laziness, the interview has been conducted in sound format and you are able to listen to it here.

    Cinematographer extraordinaire Anraheir delights us once again with another expertly crafted cinematic. Tributary Travels follows a pharaoh carries a holy relic to the source of the Nile in hopes of lifting a curse from the land of Egypt and its people. In true style each scene is masterfully crafted and an eyecandy delight in itself. It's truly worth watching as loads of incredible tricks are used.

    Patch 2.8 Scheduled Beta Testing
    Posted by nottud on June 09th, 2020 @ 12:08 p.m.

    Hey everyone I bring this update from the FE devs regarding testing the 2.8 BETA patch:

    We've noticed that some people are having a hard time finding games on the public beta patch branch we'll be organizing some games this week to make sure we can have as many people testing the branch.

    To be sure to get as much information out of these test games make sure to enable recorded games! Recorded games really help us figure out bugs.

    The schedule can be found here.

    Please leave a comment if you want and are able to join.
    And if you cannot join because the time scheduled doesn't work for you then leave a comment with a time when you are able to play some games and we'll see if that time works for us or some other people.
    Cherub nottud

    With the contest in full swing and new patches dropping frequently, we are delighted with the new activity in SD. So it's time to hunt some new wings.

    If you've run into some problems in the editor, chances are you've sought help and nottud has come to your aid. Having an extensive decade plus legacy discovering untold mayhem, trigger tricks and functions - he now find himself making new programs that challenge the fundamentals of the game itself.

    I'm thrilled to have him on the AoMH team and look forward to more installments of game breaking sorcery.

    All praise and glory to nottud.
    Patch 2.8!
    Posted by Yeebaagooon on May 26th, 2020 @ 5:50 p.m.

    It seems we have a new patch on the block and this is an exciting one!
    For starters, there are some long awaited crash and balanced changes. As if that wasn't good enough there are some very interesting new features such as raising water, changing terrain in editor and forcing player gods.

    There have been added script functions for designers along with these changes, and I was expecting them to be abused by nottud - but the madman has already gone and released a trigger pack for it! His thread can be found here.
    Official link to the full changelog is here.

    I'd be really interested to see some screenshots of what you can now do! It is strongly encouraging to see the developers start to add features for scenario designers. Please post away.
