Formerly known as Delta289 for the almost 5 years I've been on this site. I'm a giant fan of Lord Of the Rings and Warhammer 40,000. I used to be really big into star wars but due to recent events my interest in Star Wars is pretty much spent. My patience just ran thin with the decreasing quality of stories coming out of that company and I no longer wish to be associated with any of it.

I'm pretty sure Dictator and Emperor are two completely different things. From what I know the Senate appointed Dictators who had a period of service time like consul, except were only for desperate situations like in the 2nd Punic War. Also wasn't Octavian [Augustus] the first Emperor of Rome?

Yes but after a period of time, the dictators would give up their power when there was no need for it (much to the fashion of Cincinnatus).

Yes Octavian was considered the "first" emperor but he was Caesar's adopted son and also doesn't appear as a recruit-able character in the game.

Now that's some dedication right there.

I've actually compiled a lot of files that help in roleplaying as close to reality as possible and it is fairly entertaining. If you're interested I could host the files on Mod DB for you.

Description

After weeks of planning, I've finally done it! I reenacted Julius Caesar's rise to power as emperor of Rome (he liked to call himself dictator for life instead of emperor but i digress) in the game Rome II: Total War

When Caesar became available to recruit in, I think it was around 60 or 59 BC in my Roman campaign, I immediately set him in command of one of my legions and unleashed him upon Gaul. After ROFL-stomping the Averinii, Helvetii and Pictones, Caesar finally reached enough gravitas and ambition points to start a Civil war within Rome, after crushing the Senate loyalists, i was given the choice to either remain as a republic or declare Rome as an empire. I obviously went the Empire rout.
