AOKH Holiday Guide
Posted by Anastasia on December 24th, 2006 @ 7:55 p.m.

The holidays are here, and for many of us this means a welcome break from school and work. Here’s hoping some of you out there will spend some time here with all of us at AOKH. I’ve made this little guide for those of you who have finally found the time to join us, and yet are still wondering what to do at Age of Kings Heaven.

Where To Go:
Favorite Hero from Scenario Editor
Just got AoK as your holiday gift, or already a veteran? Join MythWriter in his thread about the Hero units, or get answers on how to play the game in the General & Strategy Discussion Forum!

Winterland Long ago Enrique Orduno and King40 teamed up to create this Christmas scenario. Players will have a most wonderful time in Winterland!

Christmas Mod The Christmas Mod team, Tiger and IVAN DRAGO, created this Mod Pack with holiday theme back in 2001. This mod pack gives us Christmas trees, a snowman, Rudolph, and more all inside our AoK game. Isn’t it time you tried a Mod pack?

The Nativity Set This scenario was created by me as a Christmas gift to the AOKH members in the past, and yet the wish for Peace on Earth and a Merry Christmas remains. Take a heartfelt Christmastime journey through this historical perspective of the Nativity.

Halo Wars Heaven Launched!
Posted by Anastasia on December 9th, 2006 @ 3:06 a.m.
HeavenGames’ newest Seraph, and our beloved President of AOKH: watchwood, has announced the launch of the new Halo Wars Heaven!

From Watchwood:
It’s finally here, Halo Wars Heaven is now online, to bring you all your Halo Wars Happiness. Be sure to check out the site, the forums, and the rest of the HG network if you’re new, and stop by the forums to say hi and introduce yourself.

Though I believe a short introduction would be appropriate. I am watchwood, the resident Seraph and administrator of Halo Wars Heaven. Also staffing HWH are Elpea, Sith, Shadowflare, and Bendak. All of us are huge fans of the Halo series, and we look forward to a long and happy future for HWH.

Halo Wars is a RTS game for the XBOX 360 based on the Halo universe, developed by Ensemble Studio and published by Microsoft.

It’s a bittersweet moment for me and I imagine it is for many at Age of Kings Heaven, just knowing that watchwood will not be around as much any more. So, on behalf of the staff and forumers of AOKH; Congratulations watchwood, and thanks for the good times!

Please congratulate watchwood and the rest of the HWH Staff here!
