Home of the Æsir
Åsgard is a Populous III: The Beginning (RTS 1998 PC) clan founded in 2005, with members from all over the world. To this day Populous III has an active player run Matchmaker and Community. Clans are a very important part of this community, Åsgard being the 2nd oldest of the lot. We compete in monthly ELO leagues on individual and clan levels. But most importantly, we play for fun.
Of course there is the AsG way, making friendships that last a lifetime"
Åsgard is turning 15 soon, which is quite unbelievable! Fifteen years ago, the first mentions of Åsgard started expanding among our founding members, a plan that would materialise in August 2005, with several [AsG] tags logging into the lobby at once.
What makes it even more special for us, is that despite of being part of an over twenty years old game, with a community that has had its ups and downs through the years, Åsgard’s indoors clan activity has never actually faltered. We had and still have inactive years lobby-wise, but our members have trascended the limits of Populous’ community and kept in touch steadily through the years in real life.
And with all this introduction is that we release a new website, and a new look and feel for our forums. Technology has always been on our side, and we keep taking advantage of that by exploring new platforms and means of communication.
You will find we have embedded our Discord channel on this site, and you can of course join us in our public chat (remember the good old IRC days? We’re bringing that back!).
You will also find a way improved application form, with adequately separated sections and guidance on how to apply to join the clan. If you’re looking to join us, make sure you have a look at our Clan rules, policies and values page. We welcome positive players regardless of their level or skill at the game, and we strive to make our community as inclusive and fun as possible.
Thanks for reading, welcome to our new site, and stay tuned!
Populous: The Beginning
Populous: The Beginning is a real-time strategy video game and is the third entry in the Populous video game series, developed by Bullfrog Productions. The game was released in 1998 on Microsoft Windows, and in 1999 for the PlayStation. [credits to/see: Wikipedia]
The game is still popular among its fans and continues to evolve thanks to a community of devoted developers from Populous Reincarnated, who not only maintain the Multiplayer Matchmaker engine, but also work tirelessly to reverse engineer and redevelop parts of the game, addressing compatibility, enhancing features, and allowing for better competitiveness.
