    This is a complete success!

    Perhaps Roma Surrectum and RTR and E.B. should communicate more often.

    Who knows, maybe you folks can start up your own game company! Seriously.

    Congradulations,

    We work closely with the RTR team. In fact many of use (the developers) are members of other mods and that includes both EB and RTR. I myself is a member of RS, RTR and AOD2 (age of darkness 2).

    I'm the last one around here who have a complete knowledge of the subject but here's a few picks I found.

    Makers of Ancient Strategy: From the Persian Wars to the Fall of Rome Victor Davis Hanson
    Legionary: The Roman Soldier's (Unofficial) Manual Philip Matyszak
    The Complete Roman Army Adrian Goldsworthy
    Roman Warfare (Phoenix Press) Adrian Goldsworthy

    You cam send a PM to rory o'kane and ask his help. I think he is one of the best experts here in the Roman history.
    Impossible is not a fact It's an opinion. Impossible is nothing.

    Conn Iggluden has also written some great historical novels based on the life of Caesar. They're almost entirely historically accurate, with a few allowances for narrative I think.

    The first one is called The Gates of Rome, and the series is called Emperor.

    I wouldn't call them almost entirely historically accurate at all, they are more novells written using event in Caesars life as support to the story.
    They are however really well written and a pleasure to read.

    If you want fairly accurate books on Caesar i would reccomend Colleen Mcullough over Conn Iggulden, the series starts with sulla and marius in the first few books, but eventually centers around Caesar/Octavian/Anthony- the author based the book titled "Caesar" on ceasars commentaries as well and although they dont all still exist she used what was left for the book- overall in the historical notes at the end she does seem to say that she did her best to portray the events as they happened with the limited material available (apparently there wasnt much info for sulla/marius).

    Anyone who has listen to Matt Costa's new album "Mobile Chateau" ?
    It's my favorite right now alongside his two previous ones.

    Guys. Los Angles reached a record temperature of 113 Fahrenheit. Today, while walking from school, I felt my eyebrows burning off. And my skin was literally burning( that feeling when you touch fire). Also, apparently they say that there is a 80% chance of Earthquakes today. FML.

    113 Farenheit. That's, what, 45 Celsius? Eh, we get those every year, you'll live.

    Nah, I feel for you. Here in Australia its 11 degrees (52 for you Americans) and raining. In the middle of Spring! I am unhappy.

    Well its more or less winter in the uk now even though its technically autumn, but they are both cold/rainy/snowy seasons, so we win in the competition of who has the worst weather.

    It was -40 last year when I was skiing at the northern parts. And that wasn't even that much up north.

    You're Swedish, right Apple? I'm going there at the end of this/start of next year to enjoy some of your Nordic frost. Mmmm, looking forward to those short wintry days.

    And Brittanicus, you live in Britain. Of course the weather's . Here in Australia we're usually enjoying lovely twenty-something degree days at this time of year.

    It's depressing isn't it! I'm having to get up earlier and earlier for work and now it's dark when I get up. I hate it, I feel like I should still be in bed!

    I'm glad i only have to work over the summer, but i had to get up at 5 am so it was dark anyway, but now im back at uni- i still have to get up early, because whoever organises timetables fails at life- seriously i only have 26 hours of lectures/labs a week when im at uni- why do they insist on starting all the days at 9 am.

    O yeah I agree. I hate when I have to get up for school when it's dark and come home when it's even darker.
