 Game Play
 Starting Position
- Tingi (Maurentania)
- Dimmidi (Sahara)
 Win Conditions
Take 10 settlements, including Alexandria and Carthage
Tough, desert-oriented infantry and light, powerful cavalry. They have no siege weapons and very few heavy units.
 Unique Units
Hillmen- Tough, dependable infantry that can hurl javelins before charging; they have a moderate defense, and dug in on a hill they can hold an enemy for a long time.
Berber Axemen- These guys mostly suck. They have terrible morale, will get cut to pieces under missile fire, and only gain a minimal bonus from fighting in the desert. They are, however, useful against heavily armored enemies, and if properly positioned they can maul a unit of Comitatenses.
Mountain Men- Very tough, good morale, and can be absolute beasts in the desert. MM's make a great garrison for your home cities, and they should generally be stationed somewhere important(Alexandra/Carthage/possibly Tingi)
Desert Archers- Basic archers, nothing special
Moorish Raiders/Camel Raiders/Berber Lancers-Good, fast cavalry all, Moors are the best
