    I believe they looked to history for inspiration. For example the Ver Sacrum was an actual rite carried out by the Sabines and Samnites.

  2. Re: A Total War Saga : Troy coming to Steam on 2. September

    Unfortunately not, sorry. It's a combination of a memory and what others have been saying on Reddit, but I can't pin down the exact post/article, sorry.

  3. Re: A Total War Saga : Troy coming to Steam on 2. September

    What they said was they hoped to be able to do something like that, possibly through Total War Access. Unfortunately looks like that didn't come to fruition as there's been no mention recently.

  7. Re: Dealing with multiple rebellions in Caesar in Gaul

    What you're describing sounds like Caesar in Gaul's end game challenge, when all Gaul rises against you. (The other factions have a different challenge.)
