I really like the idea; good luck for the modding work
Nice progress! Just to say I didnt forgot my promise to make Croatian faction for you, if you wouldnt be able to borrow it from TGC.
then forget it
seriously do, getting it from TGC would be best solution, its same period, thus same units

Are there some faction symbols ?
Why not a britanny faction ?
We would like to have all kinds of factions like that, but i'm afraid we are limited to a roster of only ~30 factions because of the hardcoded Med2 engine. If you can convince us why it warrants a faction slot better than one we already have though, go for it
Well, I think that the Duchy of Brittanny would be better than the Kingdom of Frise.
Following the battle of the Boarn in 734, the Frisian Kingdom was annexed to the Frankish Empire. Then Frise had no more independance or even power.
But the Brittany is far different. This realm was never invaded by the Franks, and even during Charlemagne's reign, Brittany kept its independance. In the early 10th century, the country was overrun by northmen and then the old Kingdom of Brittany was destroyed. But in 936, Alan II Wrybeard, grandson of the last king of Brittany Alan I the Great, freed his people from the nordic's dominion and established the Duchy of Brittany. From then the three houses of Brittany (Nantes, Rennes, Cornouaille) fought for control over the duchy until 1532.
Brittany has a proud history of independance, and resisted from the German invasions until the end of Middle Ages.
And for the campaign, it could be the only celtic faction in continental europe. The units can mix a round of celtic traditional units, roman-inspired troops, and frankish-nordic troops.
And strategically, they could be a pain for the Frankish.
What do you think ?
About the Duchy of Brittany... Hmm. Do you have much sources on them? Tactics, rulers, etc? If so, go ahead and open up a new thread devoted to information on them.
We also have to take into account of gameplay as well i'm afraid, that whole area is already pretty cluttered with factions, and we need frisia to provide an annoyance to the HRE, keeping them in check I can't remember whether we have any faction slots left or not, but if we do it is definitely a contender
I think the roster include 28 factions, plus rebels. So there's an empty slot for Brittany, I think
In any case, while i do think it would be great faction, i also am starting to feel, like focus of the mod starts to shift way too much west- i mean british isles are having tons of factions already. for that reason, i'd like to see at least one more viking faction
but that said, i still like the idea, so i wont be disappointed in any case
