Each Amazon factions (there are four), as well as Carthage and the Sarmatians have their own quests to complete in order to achieve the dominance of the Europa Ecumene.
This mod introduces the concept of Balanced Unit Modeling, that is, close attentions were given to make sure there is a direct relationship between the equipment (in the form of animation skin or texture) and the infrastructure of the supporting community. Unlike many previous mods, no longer a fighting unit of 160 warriors with texture showing full suits of chain mails can be recuited from a tiny villages of 700 souls with a lone metal smith in town.

- -Main Article: Paeninsula Italica
Paeninsula Italica is a historical mod, with the timeframe of 338-222 B.C., and with aims to recreate the great struggles for the supremacy of Italy.
In this mod we are aiming to portray Italy in the late fourth century BC. After a hundred years since the founding of the Republic, Rome has grown considerably in power. It has dissolved the Latin League in 338 B.C. and has taken up the leadership among the states of Latium. In the center of the Peninsula are the powerful Etruscan League, the Sabini and the ancient nation of the Umbri. Even further to the north are teeming hordes of Celtic Insubres, Cenomani, Boii and Senones who have invaded across the Alps into the Po Valley, and entirely obliterated the old Etruscan dominion there, settling in an area neighbouring by the warlike Ligures, the Veneti and the Rhetic tribes. To the south are the hardy Sabellian tribes collected on some powerful leagues: Sabelli, Samnites, Lucani and Brettii. On the southern Adriatic coast are the Ipygian tribes, grouped in two major confederations: the Apuli and the Messapii. Some of the ancient Greek cities still survived and are collected in the "Italiote League" led by Tarentum. The rich Sicily is still contended by Chartage and the great city of Syracuse. News has arrived that Alexander of Epirus, uncle of Alexander the Great, has just landed with ambitions for the whole peninsula.
