I'm afraid the accessibility of NTWH within the wider HG and TWH network is sub-par. At first I thought this was caused by the transition period of setting up a new site, but as the problem has persisted I think it may be worth noting it here.
The following is the case:

- There is no link to NTWH near the top banner on any of the TWH sites/forums (RTWH is also lacking a link to ETWH there).
- There is no link to the NTWH forum in the forum Hop to bar on any HG forum.
- The only way to get to NTWH while on any HG forum is by going to ETWH, then clicking the link to go to NTWH. However, this link takes you to the frontpage of NTWH rather than to the forums.

This is all rather cumbersome. I did notice there is a link to NTWH on the HG main page, and another to the forum in the forum directory there (although it is called an upcoming game there, which is peculiar as NTWH didn't go live until after the game was released), but as I only visit the HG forums that's no less indirect. It almost looks like HG isn't very fond of NTWH. I'd understand it if they would want to keep the forum hop bar relatively clean and not too crowded, but a better way of doing this would be by removing the links to long archives forums, such as Empires: DotMW Heaven.

I realise this is only in part a problem NTWH staff can fix, as the hop to bar is managed centrally, iirc, but giving a relatively new site good accessibility is vital when you want to attract new visitors. And NTWH staff are the ones who should be pushing for this.

RTWH actually has a link to ETWH. NTWH added.
- There is no link to the NTWH forum in the forum Hop to bar on any HG forum.
This is outside our control but we'll try to get it fixed asap.
- The only way to get to NTWH while on any HG forum is by going to ETWH, then clicking the link to go to NTWH. However, this link takes you to the frontpage of NTWH rather than to the forums.
Less than ideal. We'll push to get it fixed.
