 Game Play
The Western Roman Rebels are the Western Roman Empire's shadow faction. They take over rebellious cities and armies of the Western Roman Empire. If a Western Roman settlement's population is very unhappy, it will rebel and join the Western Roman Rebels. The same can happen with armies. That way, a general with a low loyalty rating can become part of the Western Roman Rebels faction along with his whole army.

Historically, the Western Roman Empire suffered from many rebellions in its later days. Various generals founded their own kingdoms within the Roman Empire and declared themselves independent. Furthermore, as the population became increasingly unhappy, riots and revolts became rather common.
