Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Will you add faction X ?
A: We're not making any promises concerning upcoming factions, we follow our planning and eventually new factions are done.

Q: Will you add X item ?
A: If it fits our time frame then we will most likely add it as long as it is relevant, if it doesn't then we won't.
Items we won't do:
- Square Scutums
- Segmentata
- Corinthian Helmet
Stop requesting these please.

Q: Faction X is so OP/UP (overpowered/underpowered)!!!
A: That's not a question. Also we tested everything against everything in multiplayer a dozen times already and as far as I'm concerned it's relatively balanced. It seems to work decently in SP too so if all you have is one random empiric occurrence where you got your ass handed to you that won't be convincing of a faulty balance.

Q: Is the mod dead?
A: No.

Other things worth mentioning:
We do our own research so please be so kind to not point towards Rome II as a historical reference, we appreciate actual history books and physical evidence over movies/videogames. We do have a planning for what we are doing (most of the time) so there is no point in suggesting to us what our next move shall be. Thank you for reading the F.A.Q. and twice the thanks for reading the F.A.Q. before posting a question already answered in it.

At this timeframe if they ever heard about Rome they wouldn't give a damn about them, they are nothing but an Italian tribe to the rest of the world. They are a threat to the Samnites and Etruscans, Gallic tribes don't care much about them either having reached their pick at the third century B.C. and sacked Rome 90 years before. They are centuries away from having to fight the Germanic tribes which at this point are mostly skirmishing qmong themselves and the Gauls.

Eventually yes, Illyrians should come first and Iberians should come when we start making Carthage if all goes according to plan.

They are there... You can recruit them from the Campania region south of Rome (the villages around Capua and Nola).

Why not play the Samnites instead? There's plenty of troops for multiplayer already.
