Amazons Total War - Refulgent

Parthian Shot Amazon Priestess Hierarchy


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. As we know it more 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 flock 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.

Amazons: Women With Names Tied To Horses

Never mind that the ancient horses with very few exceptions are almost glorified ponies, about less than 12 hands tall. And horse breeding 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.

Priestess Dispatchers


Amazon Goddess Theocracy Dispatcher - Mod DB

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.

Amazon Scouts


Amazons Total War Refulgent Elite Scout - Mod DB

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.

Amazon Pathfinders


Amazon Priestess Pathfinder - Mod DBAt

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 signal. She also needs to ensure the human resource for the operation of such a new connection to the network.

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

I get a font error, mingliu. I installed a mingliu font I found online but I still get the error:
"Script error in data/descr_font_db.txt at line 20, column 9.
Unknown font mingliu found in fonts database"

I'm running: AmazonsTW-Refulgent_rev80M_000
Any ideas? I have the Steam Rome Total War Gold version.
Thanks

Hi, you need to run the Chinese font installing program came free with the download file.

Under the folder
汉化
Using this utility
罗马全面战争 全系列版本 中文语言包 正式版2.0

Hope this helps.

Sorry, only being to China three times on archaeological trips, my Chinese is not good, and our Chinese translator is no longer with the project.

I just tried it again and it failed. I have it already running with administrator privileges and it still fails with that error message. I'm running it on Windows 8 and I bought the steam version just to install Refulgent.

Ok, if I renamed the font file to a non-chinese character name (and moved it to my desktop) I was able to get the application "罗马全面战争全系列版 本中文语言包正式版2.0" to run, translation of application's title:
"Rome Total War Full range Version Chinese language pack full version 2.0." Now I get an error part way through installing the font. It says that ui_0.pak is not a valid previous version and could not be upgraded. I've installing it into the Total War folder that I installed Refulgent on top of. I have the Steam version of RTW-Gold. Any other idea. Where am I supposed to install this font pack to? I think I'm doing it to the right place but I'm not sure. If I don't select the game directory I get a different error. When I try to run refulgent I get a font error still.

I've tried booting into safe mode, running it in WinME compatibility mode, and back-dating the file's date with a utility program, none of which has helped.

Amazons Total War 8.0M, yet another microstep towards the Amazons Total War in M2TW, this time, the standard bearers and the companion cavalry units are all updated, impacting 34 files. In addition, a new French language folder has been created, but not finished.

A major reconfiguration of buildings also took place.

Very good point, the 50 provinces win is not working, only if the true world domination is the real winning condition now.

A new release with another development member's addition has been created.

The 8.0L revision has the following changes to keep consistent with M2TW release.

1. New Barb Archress System and Light Archer System with impact to 92 units.
2. Bug corrections to missing standard bearer's skins for Scythia and Far East Celt.
3. New battle stats for light archers, both foot as well as mounted units.
4. New shield designs for most of the light units.
5. Corrections of mixed color hair for amazon light units (particularly on those without helmets).
6. physical attribute correction so the light unit warriors appear to be more anatomically natural.
7. Primary and Secondary weapon re-animation so the shield is deployed properly. The corrects the old bug where the shield became part of the primary weapon and disappears when the secondary weapon is deployed.
