Choose between 7 major factions, all historically based:

Flavius Constantinus Augustus (Constantine) - You have recently arose to the rank of Augustus by proclamation of your soldiers. When your father and former Augustus Constantintius Chlorus died suddenly in 306 A.D., you were the next logical choice to become Caesar under the replacement Western Augustus Severus. However, the Alamannic king Chrocus and your legions declared you Augustus without the approval of the senior Emperor, Galerius. After accepting the lesser title of Caesar from Galerius, you have recently rose to become one of four Augusti during this turbulent time following the death of Emperor Galerius in 311 A.D.

Marcus Maxentius Augustus (Maxentius) - You are a brazen usurper of the Augustus title, or so most of your contemporary Emperors see you. When Constantinus was proclaimed Augustus by his own troops in Britain during the summer of 306 A.D., you saw the path to power. The son of former Augustus Maximian, you were declared Emperor by the people of Rome when the other Emperors attempted to impose a tax on the ancient city. You have weathered the attacks of the now dead Severus Augustus' and Galerius Augustus' legions against your legitimacy to rise to power.

Gaius Licinius Augustus (Licinius) - You grew up the childhood friend of the recently deceased senior Emperor, Galerius. He tried to hold the Empire together in the manner of Diocletian, but his reign was fraught with conflict. Upon his death in 311 A.D., you took over his place and reached an agreement with Maximinius Daia to share the regions of the East. Although you are nominally the senior Emperor, your hold over the Empire is extremely precarious as tensions are rising between all four Emperors.

Gaius Maximinus Daia Augustus (Maximinus Daia) - You are a relative newcomer to the Imperial ranks, but your experience as a soldier makes you more than qualified to lead. Campaigns against the Sasanian Empire have proven your worth and Emperor Galerius adopted you in 305 A.D. Upon his death in 311 A.D., you divided the Eastern Empire with Licinius Augustus. While you may seem to be peaceful, you have plans for maneuvering into ultimate power.

Sasanian Empire - After the fall of the Arsacid (Parthian) Empire, Ardashir I founded the Sasanian Empire in its place. Although the empire started in traditionally eastern territories, it eventually expanded to challenge the Roman empire for control of the Eastern Mediterranean. During the Sasanian Empire's ascendancy, Persian culture reached new heights and flourished as the major power between India and the West.

The Franks - The Franks were a loose confederation of Germanic peoples who populated the area surrounding the Rhine river. Some tribes would regularly raid Roman territory, while others chose to join the Roman legions as soldiers. As their raids became more and more invasive, the Franks turned into a very real threat to Roman stability in the west.

The Goths - The Goths as a people were believed to originate from Scandinavia, although they ventured far into other territories. By the third century A.D., the Goths had crossed the lower Danube and begun to ravage various territories all the way to the Black Sea. Eventually, two of the Gothic branches, the Visigoths and Ostrogoths, would become major threats to Rome and lead to the fall of the Western Roman Empire.

Minor Factions - Lombards (Boii), Kindah (Qidri), Garamantia, Huns (Roxolani), Scythia, Massagetae, Picts (Caledones), Taurica (Cimmeria)
