Danke King Kong dass ich Third Age ab meinem Geburtstag zocken kann
Oh sorry, I didn't make myself clear enough... is there anyone with an interest in Golden Ages who can mod? Besides KnightoftheNine
And also, do you think the Reconquista Total War people would be interested in helping us out? As you seem to be good friends with them, Kornflakes...
That sounds like a great idea Kornflakes... you sort it out, you're the German expert!
I can't say I would mind giving a helping hand in regards to research to this mod. My specialities are the Irish language and history, and would be able to give you some information on the Ui Néill. I would also like to point out, that although churches in Celtic countries, and in England for that matter, may have had a different hierarchical and clerical structure from the continent at this stage, that technical they would not have been considered separate churches. The Celtic church in Ireland had conformed to Roman practice by 700, and in England since the synod of Whitby. Furthermore, since Cinaed had formed the Kingdom of Scotland in the 840s, there was no longer a separate Dal Riada or foirtriu. There were all the same nation from then onwards. Dal Riada in Ireland were never more than a subgroup of the Ulaid, who were in turn subservient to the Ui Néill so there is no reason why the should be represented in this mod.
One question that I am interested in though is, shall there be a Lotharingia?
Oh, and welcome to the team! Put us on your signature!

Hi, i've benn talking to kornflakes in the total war-zone-forum. He said i could help you in researching about the different factions except of the byzantines. I'm quite interested in medieval history and could provide you with some good information if you want so. I'm also starting to learn skinning new units but i'm still beginning and trying out GIMP. Seems to be pretty complicated.
Sounds good Vespasian68, which factions would you like to research? Researchers for the Muslim factions would be good, but tell me which ones you would like to do, and I will tell you if someone is already doing them or not!
900 is a very interesting time in Irish history, the doctrine of the High-Kingship had been established and the Uí Néill were becoming more ruthless and employing more realpolitik to establish their hegemony over the other kingdoms. However, it also sees a strengthening of these kingdoms in response and then a virtual revolution (or usurption, depending on your point of view) in the guise of Brian Bóroimhe. It also sees the start of employing viking tactics and weaponry in Irish warfare as well as the growth of the Ostmen towns, exposing Irish culture to external influences on a level never achieved before. I would loved to provide help to any team which wished to depict these events.
Oh sorry, but I'm german too . I'd like too do some research about the vikings or the east frankish empire but the Ummayid Emirate of Cordoba would be interesting too. I've found a nice map here:
