CODEX EXCLUSIVE - Novus Mundi [Munch] - 12:54 pm BDT
Here's a sneak peek at the new layout for the Novus Mundi Tournament being hosted by the Knights of Eblis. KofE has souped up the interface providing a Strategical, Intelligence, and Military Advisors. This is shaping up to be one intense tournament.
The Strategical Advisor -
This is where you make your moves and challenges. It shows you adjacent territories as well as a sense of the overall status of the tournament.
The Military Advisor -
Here you'll issue and recall garrisons - send your troops to the front lines and back to defend your key territories. Keep your troops organized and marching forward....
The Intelligence Advisor -
From here you can send spies to infiltrate your enemies ranks and give you the down and dirty on their strengths and next moves. Scouts take peeks at maps to see if any one is home - very useful for avoiding/finding combat
Take a look at the screen shots (reduced to 800x580 resolution) of the different advisor screens.
This note came in from Taft recently:
Well, the tournament is moving along as scheduled. I am happy to announce that there will be no challenge submit/confirm BS like there was in the last tourney. The scripts will suggest a time and date to play, and it's up to you when you play your game if you don't like the time. (You'll have 3 days to play, or it will be a loss)
There will be an orientation this Sunday, August 2, at 8pm Eastern on bungie.net. We'll meet in Bagrada...bring your order members along.
Also, I need a list of 3 people in your order that you want to receive the emails for game times and such...we don't want to forward to entire orders this time. Everyone will still get emails like this one.

Must be that time.... [Munch] - 12:54 pm BDT
Well, I don't know what is going to happen to this page. I'm taking a leave from the Codex and Myth for a while. I need to climb up to a mountain cabin in the Andes and think for a couple of months. So, I'm leaving this page in the capable hands of the Codex staff. I'm leaving you with this last thought.
For memory's sake of when I was running Tournament Central here's your moment of zen:
They can call me crazy if I think
All the cahnce I need
Is one in a million
They can call me brilliant
If I succeed
Gravity is nothing to me
Moving at the speed of sound
Just going to get my feet wet
Until I drown
- "Swan Dive" by Ani DiFranco
