Conquer, rule and manipulate the Roman Empire with the ultimate goal of being declared as the "Imperator" of Rome. Set in a time when the mighty Roman Empire emerged to conquer the known world against powerful enemies, when gladiators fought to a bloody death in the Coliseum; when Spartacus defied the might of the empire; when Hannibal led his invincible army and his war elephants across the Alps to strike fear into the very heart of Rome itself; and when Julius Caesar finally smashed the Barbarian Gauls. This was a time of brutal confrontation between civilisation and barbarism, and of civil war as the ancient world's only superpower turned on itself.
I was lucky enough to spend a few days of vacation in Norway, Sognefjorden mostly, and after that I decided to have another look at improving the fjords and settlements.

Now, the settlements act as choke points, simulating that you'd have to use boats to be able to move about in these areas (and thus have at least some control over the area). You can see how it works here:
The crossings and mountain passes, etc. have been looked into in quite some detail, and I even made an effort to make the areas around the settlements look nearly like in reality.
Some of the areas may not look pretty on the campaign map:
... but the battle map looks quite similar to the real world picture:

The game that made the TW saga a classic. For someone that played a lot Shogun TW like me, playing RTW for the first time was absolutely stunning. The vanilla game is superbly done. The battles, the strategy map, visual & sound effects, physics.... you name it. What made this game even greater were it's excellent mods. It's greatest flaw, however, was shared by it's successor, M2TW and it's expansion Kingdoms: The lack of naval battles on the battlemap. Which came only when Empires TW came out…
