As this author is fond of saying: "If the word 'History', or His-Story, as coined by Herodotus, does justice to the human existence, it would record that 95% of human existence is actually Her-Story". For matriarchal societies governed much of the societal evolution of the human existence. We know it from the science of anthropology than from the study of "history", for history is a mere few thousand years of records over the hundred thousand years of human's societal existence. And history as records go, are often written by the victors over the vanquished, by the indoctrinators over the uninformed, by the mass-propaganda machine over the sheep known as the citizenry, aka the general public. One victim of such "scholarly study" is the stories of the Amazons: for in the world views of Herodotus and his contemporaries, Amazons are the people they don't want their womenfolks to be. And that sets the trend of the downward spiral, the trend that vilify women's leadership along with their martial prowess. Never mind that the ancient horses with very few exceptions are almost glorified ponies, about less than 12 hands tall. And horse keeping people would know, and should know that, given the quality of the war mounts, women makes eminently better cavalry soldiers than men. And it is no surprise that most of the Amazons recorded by the Greek "Historians" kept the nom de guerre which have connotation to horses.

The Amazons Total War as a mod is unique in that it hypothesizes the plausible origin of the Amazons. That they are a powerful goddess cult governed by a sisterhood of priestesses. And connecting the influential temples of these goddess cults are the network of equestrian message dispatchers. Many of such temples might have been controlling the local politics and ruled its municipalities in all but names, Very likely these message dispatchers are junior priestesses of the cult. The network would operate in a fashion not dissimilar to the modern history's pony express in that it has maps and routes as well as the operators, but without the highway or road infrastructure similar to the messaging system built by Darius for his Achaemenid Empire.

So the Amazon factions in the mod, as well as those factions in the mod who can assimilate into the Amazon culture, must have the following units recruitable units from its municipalities.

The lower level of the combat unit is the Message Dispatchers, formed in time of the war into a military unit. They are trained in peace time to be an effective combat team. Delivering message over enemy or unknown territories takes survival skills, combat skills, guise, cunning and guile. And the Amazon priestesses cannot manage such feat without proper military training.

The higher level is that of the Amazon Scouts, In the mod's storyline, the Amazons Scouts also double as the judge of peace, to punish those who presents a threat to the goddess theocracy, or to the community the Scouts are tasked to protect.

At the next higher level is the Amazon Pathfinders, which is like a field marshal, an civic engineer, and a navigator all rolled into one persona. When a temple seeks to connect to a new territory or another temple through unknown territory, the Pathfinder is tasked to find viable route, with coded map and singal. She also needs to ensure the woman power for the operation of such a new connection to the network.

The 8.0F release represents the best release that matches this goddess priestess sisterhood.

Yes, our mod team is working on it, however, the level of release is highly dependent on whether CA can make either product a true open mod platform like they did to RTW. Also we need to see if they can resolve several key issues with their AI. Currently we don't see either as products with mature AIs.

Hopefully CA will address the difficulties with their AI and the game's modibility. I haven't found any other TW mods out there that incorporate aspects of Greek Mythology, and I'd hate to see this mod not continue on in Rome II due to CA. I really enjoy the RTW edition of this mod nonetheless and good luck at your attempts to mod Rome II.

New Release 8.0F is being uploaded.

This release follows the Amazon Goddess Theocracy story line and theory and adds Amazon Goddess units to all assimilated Amazon Cultures. Before some factions are supposedly assimilated to become Amazon Priestess Culture as in many ancient societies but the key unit derived from the Amazon Leadership Caste were missing.

This release also resolved a major bug in the Scandinavian Quest, where re-start of the game after saving a current campaign would cause the game to re-tell the quest and accumulated new Amazon Advanced Technology units and this could cause bankruptcy of the Amazon faction.

Thanks to Vandreren's bug sighting, a file with war wagon bug fix which was not added to the release was located and updated.

This file is now incorporated into the download and can be accessed as the latest 8.0E release on this site.

The following are the changes in 8.0E

1. Allow Ptolemaic Egypt and Seleucid to have mobile ballista artillery, these are still the canister shot version like the Greek Cities and Macedonian operate.
2. The Greek factions are deploying the Ebeatos Palintonon (Canister Shot Mobile Artillery) at the beginning of the campaigns (of all four varieties). Since Ebeatos Palintonon was used even during the Alexander The Great's Persian expedition, there is no reason why these weapons cannot be deployed after his death.
3. The capability to produce and replenish these weapons, however, come much later, each faction must achieve tier 4 to be able to recruit these mobile artillery units.
4. New Amazon Dispatcher Cavalry model and animation
5. New Barbarian Javelin Cavalrywomen model and animation
6. New War Wagon Stat, to make this type of units truly heavy panzer unit
7. LOD correction for Amazon Legionair Cohorts
8. More aggressive and heavily armed rebel faction
9. Amazonia can now horde
10. Scythian Horde now have heavy units (wagons).
11. German faction can now horde as well.
