  1. Re: Did the Romans know there were other lands such as in China, Russia, India, Mongolia, Southern Africa, etc?

    Seems like it! Thanks for sharing, Sumskilz. It seems obvious enough to me that the Northern Xiongnu who fled Han China into Central Asia gradually morphed into something else, especially as they...
  2. Sticky: Re: Announcement: Europa Barbarorum II 2.35 released!

    I have a question about recruiting Roman units in Italy as Hellenistic Greek factions, since I am now over 250 turns into my current Epeiros campaign. I played a 1000-turn Roman campaign this year...

    Sorry for the delay! I've been busy with friends & family all weekend and haven't had a chance to sit down for a proper response. I definitely have the field of games that the Seleucids built and...
  4. Re: Roman FMs and their hatred for games/races

    The beating heart of Rome is not the marble of the Senate, it's the sand of the Colosseum. Rospokadu will bring them death...and they will love him for it. :D

    Carmen Sylva already pointed this out above when noting the Oppidum of Manching in Bavaria, Germany. If you visit the page link, it claims the site reached a population size of about 10,000 people....

    I have a supervised Hellenic administration, a second-tier Hellenistic polis (built by the Seleucids before I got there), and the provincial culture has over 60% Hellenistic polities. That's well...
  8. Re: Did the Romans know there were other lands such as in China, Russia, India, Mongolia, Southern Africa, etc?

    Yep, pretty much, and like I mentioned before, Ptolemy demonstrated that he knew a great deal about trade and commerce in southeast Asia. Beyond that he clearly charted the outlines of the South...

    It feels strange to say this to you, but you're wrong! All of this was going on after I already achieved the Thorakitai reforms. It's already 212 BC in the game. I took Damaskos in like 216 or 215...

  11. Re: What were the reasons why the Romans decided not venture on conquering all the lands that today are in Germany?

    Good point! Thanks for sharing that.



    All very true.



    To emphasize this point, the colonial Greek towns and cities in southern Gaul, especially Massalia with its own navy (until it sided...

    Wait...I just had an idea. Perhaps it was only showing a few new Western Greek portraits because you left most of the old ones from images "000" to "084" alone, and tacked the vast majority of the...

  19. Re: What were the reasons why the Romans decided not venture on conquering all the lands that today are in Germany?

    Even though they never conquered eastern Germany, the Romans still did pretty well for themselves by building entire cities, not just forts, along the huge stretch of the Rhine River. Modern cities...

    To reinforce what Conan has said, the Romans knew about India even before they took over Ptolemaic Egypt from Cleopatra VII, because of the legendary lucrative trade spanning from the Red Sea ports...
