    Default ROMA VICTRIX **Showcase Beta released**

    ROMA VICTRIX



    "Rome Conquers"

    300 years ago a King named Tarquinius ruled a small city state in central Europe. This city state was of little size or importance, and of no concern to it's neighbours or the great Empires of the day - just another Kingdom of no value to anyone. Twenty-six years into this King's reign, after years of violence and oppression, his subjects revolted. A new Republic was formed, one which would be fair to all, and never see the days of Kings and dictatorship again.
    Over the next three centuries, this Republic faced many trials and challenges - it was sacked by Barbarians invading from the North, it faced many wars with local peoples, it suffered from internal strife, yet it thrived. Territory was gained; the rights of the poor promoted; a moral constitution formed, which, though unwritten and unofficial set the standards for generations of cultural practice.
    But this Utopia had it's flaws. For all the value this society placed on honour, corruption was rife. Although the poor had their "rights" they could hold few offices in government. And when the Republic grasped control of the peninsula in inhabited, it started to make itself enemies much more powerful than local tribes and rivals.

    And now, to the present day: The Republic has just ended one of the most destructive wars it has ever fought - The First Punic War. With the resources that victory granted, it now stands ready to expand into the Mediterranean and beyond and forge itself as one of the true powers of Europe. But to do this there will be many lands and peoples to conquer - To the North lie the various Gallic and Germanic tribes and the rumoured isles of Britannia; To the West the remainder of the Carthaginian Empire smoulders, ever-ready to burst into the flames of war once again. And to the East lie the greatest treasures of all - The sophisticated Greek states; The wealthy Kingdoms of Pergamon and Pontus; The Ancient Ptolemaic Kingdom and the far-off continent of India.

    The world is about to witness one of the greatest and most efficient military machines in all it's history - so will you command The Republic to greater glory, or will you defend your homeland from it? Whichever side you choose, the Republic will soon enter a period of Total War. All in the name of the city at the centre of the world. Rome.



    Mod Background:Roma Victrix is a new mod for Empire: Total War, with a small but growing team. We aim to use the latest generation of community-made tools to push the boundaries of Empire: Total War modding to the next level. Empire:Total War offers many great opportunities as a modding platfrom - this mod aims to fully include India and Naval Battles, to name but a very small few of the features we will develop and introduce (And yes, we've dealt with America!). The mod is currently in a Pre-Alpha stage, and with current tools becoming more comprehensive by the minute now has the resources to enter full-scale development. Although assembling a team has begun, there are plenty of positions available. If you are interested in taking part in Roma Victrix, let us know! We need people of all skill levels - researchers, battle map editors, skinners, modelers, animators etc. We will also cater for people with no experience modding ETW, but with the enthuse to learn.


    Shown below is the RV unit models gallery; as you can see all of the work to-date has been on unit models, we are soon beginning the campaign map design phase!
