This is the very last update for the Rise of Kings: Chronicles project, until further notice, and all units are contained in this update. We have not...
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.

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
With the addition of the last patriot and wonder unit sprites, Rise of Kings is now complete, although additional material - ie icons and flavour text - are still far from properly done, as is balancing. We will however upload the full version to the original Rise of Kings page, once these have been completed to satisfaction.
Nevertheless, the mod is now fully playable. We wish all users the best with our humble mod, and we too also will remind them to keep their eyes and ears open for any issues that may crop up.
Wishing you success in every way,
