1 Becoming emperor

Becoming emperor is not easy, you need to reach the top of the roman society, make powerful friends.
Dont make powerful enemies, get your army ready, plan everything and strike at that perfect moment.

2 As emperor
You can declare war.

You can sign alliances.
You can make trade agreements.
You can share technical knowledge.
You can ask them to allow trespassing each others terrain with big armies.
You can make pacts in which you declare not to attack each other.
You can make defensive, and military alliances.

You can freely assign governors

you are the governor of Italia (which is Italy south of the Rubicon)
You are the governor of Rome of course, but you can give yourself any land you want.
You can give places to people, according to their services, or just because you like them.

You are emperor until you are deposed by force.
If a praetor has gotten the province of Sardinia and you as emperor assign him Syria, than he will go to Syria because it is higher priority.

3 triumphs

If you make 100 renown during a term as governor, or if you get 30 or more renown in one battle you may also be allowed a triumph.
If the emperor is positive it will happen
When emperor is neutral and senate positive it will happen
But only small ones, you need to win big battles for big one´s
Like stopping boudica will get you a big triumph

A triumph will get you honor (20), and 20 more renown. To be a consul you must have a triumph.

4 barbarians
Barbarians; Groups of 300 badly geared barbarian soldiers. 2 or 3 groups may team together and try to besiege something. Governors are there to defend against these and will not leave their province to respond to martial summons, other vassals with no province will follow you. Governors will accompany but only with a summons directly to them.

5 contracting and reinforcement
A legion consists of 350 units of which 200 are legionairs, 50 archery, 50 cavalry, 50 auxiliary
So no need to actually contract troops, your troops will be filled automatically because Rome sends troops to you, with delay ofcourse and chance of them getting attacked

6 governors
A governor will have approximately 350 troops if he controls one legion so with the biggest provinces he can have 1400 troops :D

7 provinces (roman only)
Britain (Britain) Imperial 1 Town, 3 Forts 2 Legions
Lugdunensis (Northern France) Imperial 1 Town, 2 Forts 1 Legion
Germania (Rhine border) Imperial 1 Town, 3 Forts 4 Legions
Narbonensis (Southern France) Senatorial 2 Towns, 1 Fort 1 Legion
Nearer Gaul (Northern Italy) Senatorial 1 Town, 2 Forts 1 Legion
Italia (Italy) Emperor's 3 Towns, 3 Forts 1 Legion and 4 Praetorian legions
Sicily (Sicily) Senatorial 1 Town, 1 Fort None
Sardinia (Sardinia and Corsica) Senatorial 1 Town, 1 Fort None
Tarraconsis (Northern Spain) Senatorial 1 Town, 2 Forts 1 Legion
Lusitania (Southern Spain) Senatorial 2 Towns, 1 Fort None
Mauritania (Morroco and Algeria) Imperial 1 Town, 1 Fort None
Africa (Tunisia and Libya and Crete) Consular 3 Towns, 1 Fort 3 Legions
Egypt (Egypt) Imperial 2 Towns, 1 Fort 2 Legion
Syria (Syria and Israel and Cyprus) Imperial 3 Towns, 1 Forts 3 Legions
Asia (Western Turkey) Senatorial 2 Towns, 1 Fort None
Capadocia (Northeastern Turkey) Imperial 1 Town, 3 Forts 2 Legions
Macedonia (Greece) Consular 3 Towns, 1 Forts 2 Legions
Moesia (Bulgaria and parts of Romania) Imperial 1 Town, 3 Forts 2 Legions
Pannonia (Eastern Yugoslavia) Imperial 1 Town, 2 Forts 2 Legions
Illyricum (Coastal Yugoslavia) Senatorial 1 Town, 2 Forts None

8 ranks
all ranks sorted at position:

1 emperor (total ruler)
2 governor, become an governor of like Africa, and have control of its legions etc, only people having chance in the four emperor year (1-4 legi troops)
3 two consuls, their function is a sort of symbolic, the function is more orientated as the way to become a big governor, ofcourse the game will have an actual senate, so there's a lot you can do here, as you battle in the four emperor year you can even try to add democracy again. (Sort of roman democracy) (no troops but personal gaurd of 16)
4 praetors -- important this is more like a leader of a smaller group (80 troops)
5 quaestors -- civilian function, but you can contribute to the senate (no troops)
6 tribunes -- army function you fight under an legate to get experience and get small missions

9 a little pic of people influence trough food:

Dude maybe he's just too busy to work on it so GROW UP!

I played it when i was a child (8-9 years) and now i play Warband. I love this game, but its outdated. RIP , one of the most revolutionary games that even created. A new genre, with Sandbox and Hack n Slash in a enormous map with hundreds of mods.

10/10, never played a best game. Now waiting for bannerlord

Now that Warband is out there, i can't just forget the good old M&B.
With it's unique style, this game provided more than five years of the best medieval-style RPG, only to be bested by M&B Warband.
What more can be asked?
