This version of Rise of Kings contains all units, technologies, and possible buildings ... we however have not fully completed balance issues for units...
Rise of Kings: Chronicles is a continuation project for the mod Rise of Kings, a mod originally started by Super7700 (with support from the Rise of Nations Heavengames community) for Rise of Nations: Thrones & Patriots. Chronicles intends to continue where Rise of Kings ended, and will be in the form of one dozen or so expansion packs, each one centred around a certain theme. We expect the following to be added over time:
- New wonders and units: the first release for Rise of Kings: Chronicles, RKC 2, will include a plethora of custom-made warships and new units, such as lantern galleys and Japanese ronin.
- New tweaks to improve historical accuracy: we expect that rebalancing of parameters for warships and archers to take place to improve gameplay, for instance a longbow should have weaker attack but better rates of fire than a crossbow
- More mercenaries, such as the Swiss and the Genoese.
- Spawnable units from wonders: this was not implemented yet for the original Rise of Kings project, and we will be looking into it in due time.
For more information on this mod or to track its current progress, visit our main bulletin board and wiki here.
Whenever release of a new expansion pack is imminent, a news release is to be issued online for public review, and will contain a teaser for the next expansion pack.

Rise of Kings 1.1 by Super7700
After 13 months of work, Beelim Solutions Ltd/Bhd has terminated its contract with Messrs Shaw and Mantegazza, handing back its mandate for further work. This means further changes to Rise of Kings will be carried out by Super7700, LT_Monty, and any of their subordinates.
Work left to be taken care of:
This does not mean that our involvement in other RoN-related projects will be ended - they will still continue but only at a slower pace, due to our involvement with current mitigating issues.
Once more we would like to thank Super7700 and LT_Monty for their stellar performance on Rise of Kings, which has allowed us to bring back the mediaeval past in all its checquered and detailed glory, and wish them all success and joy in this and further endeavours.
