    I was thinking about the Pope before. My idea was either to have all Christian factions subject to him, but some (Romans, Wessex etc) having extremelly bad relations... OR get rid of him entirely. The tenth century was, after all, hardly the golden age of the Papacy, and so there does not seem to be much need to have a Pope. After all, in Vanilla, basically all he did was call crusades, and as there were no crusades in our time period, there doesn't seem too much point in having him.... what do the others think?

    As for "what's happening so far", I have taken on team leadership, and have started gathering a small team. We have assistance from CBUR, Bulgaria Total War, and Vacuus Lux Lucis for units, and several members of the Total War community, on the English and German forums have expressed an interest in helping out. Plus, I have been doing some research, and come up with a rough idea of regions and provinces, based on Euratlas. Which is below...

    Oh, and for religions I was thinking Roman Orthodox Christianity, Celtic Christianity (was it still active at the time?), Paganism, Judaism, Shia Islam, and Sunni Islam. Can you suggest any others?

    lol, don't worry they are
    if you look really closely, you can see a little black dot between them
    i've counted the regions, and there are approximately 160 of them... give or take a few, it's difficult to keep track! So plenty of room for other suggestions, if anyone has any.

    To be fair that´s about right!! to solve the problem we can make the other factions emergen or sort of or have rebels available for recruitment in those areas. and can you give me any other scandinavian faction that is not call "the viking", because to put the viking as a faction and then another faction beside it seems to be silly!! we can solve the scandinavian problem by making one "the viking "faction and the units name will be relevant to its own region!! how is that sound?

    You must choose at least one faction of each of those regions that will be active rebels(sub factions)!

    If you're talking about the province map I proposed, not all of the coloured nations will be factions, that is just a template, as it shows many of the provinces of the time, making it easy to "carve up".

    About extra provinces, remember there will be cities on Corcyra (Corfu) and Mytilene, as they were Roman themata at the time! So that gives the two extra Greek provinces. I agree with the extra Egyptian one, can anyone suggest a city? Same with the Frankish Empires...

    I will try to "clean up" the map a bit, so that it only shows the playable factions in the mod...

    Oh when I say "Roman Orthodox" I mean the entire Christian Church, which was still technically under the Pope of Rome.

    Well the great schism didn't happen until 1054... I know there were plenty of divisions before this, but technically it was still the same church...
    And I'm not sure if Celtic Christianity was even around then, does anyone know for sure?

    It was state that there will be 4 factions but, i am thinking about the rest of the map , so the team have to decide which faction remain and which turn in to rebel! like fortrui could be emergen faction but it will be Alba by then!!! and also gwynedd could be the other one, and so we keep one saxon, one celtic, one emergen britonic and one norse that would be vassal of the viking faction whatever the name we give to the latest.
