    Akrit, I'm not sure what you mean by Aram. Thanks for your response, but I am having a difficult time understanding you.

    EDIT: Okay I re read it and i think I understand. One of the problems with the Hebrews is that we just don't know when the kingdom was started. Somewhere between 1400 BC and 12something? Oh well. Great mod! =).

    EDIT: THe Hebrews did have their own kingdom by the mid to late 12s >__<. plus that's going by a late date. it could have been a 100 years earlier.
    EDIT: Oh fumble monkeys! The date is 1290-1150?

    Hebrews will be presented as "Ivri".
    "Ivri" will be one of fraction "Aramaeans" components.

    Hebrews kingdom most likely has arisen not earlier than the middle of XII century BC.

    There are no acknowledgement of earlier existence in written sources. Is not present as well archaeological acknowledgement.

    In XIII century BC it is correct to speak about nomadic tribes Hebrews

In many places the old and developed a society ceased to exist around 1200 BC In the Aegean Sea Mycenaean civilization disappeared swept migratory movements of wild northern tribes from Illyri and Thrace. Although some bards of the "dark ages" such as Homer and Hesiod remember about the past greatness of a court of Mycenaean civilization, it sank into obscurity, until archaeologists began to excavate. In the Anatolian peninsula the losses were even greater. Famine, plague, and on top of the invasion of the Thracian tribes destroyed the Hittite empire, gave the Anatolian plateau level of stability and prosperity, which this area will not see in the follow thousand years! Levantine trading cities suffered the same fate, and although recovery was faster here, but urban life was severely set back, and the major cultural centers such as Ugarit and Alalakhceased to exist altogether. In Egypt, with difficulty repelled an attack by "Sea Peoples" XX-th dynasty marked the end of the New Kingdom and the end of the achievements of the Pharaonic era.

Everywhere in the Eastern Mediterranean and the Middle East, XII-th century BC led to a "dark time", from which the world civilization began to emerge only four or five hundred years later. In general, the end of the Bronze Age was one of the deepest and catastrophes of ancient history, a great calamity than the fall of the Roman Empire.
    It is this dramatic events in world history is devoted to modification of «Bronze Age: Total War» developed on the basis of engine RTW-BI1.6, a small team of enthusiasts from Russian site internetwars.ru.

Or on the contrary lead the crowd from a desperate tramps are ready to challenge the powers that be, win fame and fortune in the war and set a new world order.
    In it the great conquerors will be a great variety of units (according to the plans to two hundred). Unit line will be as historically accurate as possible. Assistance in preparing them have professional historians of the Institute of Oriental Studies, Russia Academy of Sciences - A.A. Nemirovsky and A.V. Safronov for which many thanks to them!
    The basis of the armies of the Bronze Age was the infantry, cavalry and chariots had only been provided through this particular change to the gameplay and the tactical map, the role and importance of the chariots will increase substantially compared to the original game or other mods. Players are waiting for large-scale infantry battles with lightning breaks of mobile chariot troops - "tanks" of Bronze Age.
    Gameplay on the strategic map will be complemented by a regional system of units and a set of scripted events - epidemics, earthquakes, droughts, as well as on the campaign will appear formidable faction-destructive (not available to the player) - "Sea Peoples", Dorians and Mysii tribes (see details below) .

    The first of these - The battle in the Bekaa Valley - at the time of Akhenaten and the ensuing turmoil, Egypt lost the lion's share of their possessions in the northern Utterance (Syria). Many cities Levant came under the patronage of the powerful king of the Hittites Suppiluliuma. Two campaign of Horemheb to restore the power of Egypt over the Utterance was inconclusive. New, more energetic Pharaoh Seti I acted decisively and in the first three years of his reign, made three successful campaign. Consistently, conquered the city have fallen northern Hanaan, and the countries of the Southern Utterance and kingdoms Amurru. For the fifth year against him declared himself king Hattie – Muvatalli. Both armies met in the Beqaa Valley north of Kadesh. Networks must win soon will establish control over the cities of Northern Utterance.
    Second - Battle of Sugagu - assites kings of Babylon has always claimed dominion over Upper Mesopotamia and from time to time carried out the devastating trips to the southern borders of the Assyrian kingdom. While the power of the Assyrian kings was weak, and the Assyrian army sparse, they shied away from the battle with Kassites, but things have changed since Ashshuruballit, he managed to defeat Kassites army, capture of Babylon, and to elevate to the throne of Karduniash his grandson. Several decades later, the king of Kassites Kurigalzu decided to take revenge for the defeat of the old and consolidate the power of Babylonia over Assyria. He gathered a large army and the rapid march entered a neighborhood of Ashur. New Assyrian king Enlil-nirari be slain with Kassites and defend freedom of Assyria, or perish.
    Third - The Battle of Thebes - the fate of the Theban kingdom is solved in this battle. Eteocles and Polynices sons of Oedipus for the testamentary father had in turn every alternate on the throne of Thebes. But Eteocles in order to avoid troubles, refused to concede the throne to his brother. Offended Polynices left Boeotia. Quarrel between the brothers decided to take the Argive king Adrastus. He received the fugitive Polynices and agreed to organize a campaign to conquer Thebes, but on condition that the troops will be headed on – Adrastus. Polynices agreed. By the allies joined with with his troops a few more heroes - Tydeus, Kapan, Amphiaraus, Hippomedon, Parthenopeus. Soon omnibus army Adrastus lump to the walls of Thebes. On the eve of the battle all seven Argives leaders vowed to destroy Thebes to the ground even if it displeases of Gods. Eteocles must crush the Argives and save Thebes from destruction.
