Begone with your anachronistic concepts of "race-mixing". This is ancient Rome were talking about you stupid snownigger.

Btw you were considered well to do in upper class Roman society if your wife had multiple lovers. Men would brag in the baths about how many lovers their high status wife attracted.

I eagerly await the "Life of rome" mmorpg beta opening, but I dont think it will be what I want it to be at all.

I essentially want a deep immersive historically accurate elderscrolls game set in ancient Rome and with no magic. Be a merchant, Join the leigion, maybe campaign for political office...


Fuck I need to learn how to lucid dream so I can experience that.

>Issa is more playful than the sparrow of Catullus. Issa is more pure than the kiss of a dove. Issa is more loving than any maiden. Issa is dearer than Indian gems. The little dog Issa is the pet of Publius. If she complains, you will think she speaks. She feels both the sorrow and the gladness of her master. She lies reclined upon his neck, and sleeps, so that not a respiration is heard from her. And, however pressed, she has never sullied the coverlet with a single spot; but rouses her master with a gentle touch of her foot, and begs to be set down from the bed and relieved. Such modesty resides in this chaste little animal; she knows not the pleasures of love; nor do we find a mate worthy of so tender a damsel. That her last hour may not carry her off wholly, Publius has her limned in a picture, in which you will see an Issa so like, that not even herself is so like herself. In a word, place Issa and the picture side by side, and you will imagine either both real, or both painted.

You're just being a jackass but marriage was respected so little at certain points that you and your wife would basically be business partners and the business would be breeding. After which, both would return to their prefered lay/fuckboi/hunk and live happily.

I recently downloaded flashdevelop and tried a tutorial, but I can't even get it to work properly, I also need to download a compiler or something and I followed the instructions but it doesn't work and every time I try to load a file with it it goes into a recursive loop and keeps reloading more and more flashdevelop.exes, I'm a useless sperglord

Do you know of something I can download and just start coding something very simple, preferably for free or shareware

When it first came out it was so fucking broken. I'm just glad its playable now.

Been arguing whether or not I want to pick up Attila the next time it comes up on sale.

I was never hugely interested in late antiquity but this board is making me want to play it.

Military question: How effective was Roman cavalry? It seems that their Infantry always did the work while the cavalry is seen as the weaker unit.
>>
>>621134
They employed mercenary cavalry often. Their native cavalry perhaps wasnt the best tho.
>>
>>621128
My favorite was Napoleon.

Shogun 2 had so much potential and its still really good but I wish they would redo it and add some of the features of the later games.

The mechanics of the game are just too rigid to properly do the period and conflict justice. Generals don't make the difference they need to nor have the flare they should. Agents are useless. And the politics of it are all wrong. But they're all easy fixes. Shogun 2 had and has the potential to be the greatest of them all.

Fall of the Samurai was brilliant. I really want them to do an early modern Total War (just prior to WWI) or Romance of the Three Kingdoms.

>>621134
Cavalry was always the weakest part of their armies and generally left up to auxillaries when it could be. Probably had something to do with them being the richest members as they could actually own horses and thus the least willing to die.

One time we told Caesar to put the legionaires on horseback and he actually did it. The absolute madman!
>>
>>621128
Medieval 3 when! I've been enjoying the age of charlemagne expansion, I honestly can't pick an overall favourite though.
>>
>>621152
I just feel that the medieval period is more interesting for a total war game since all factions are relatively balanced while in rome its a couple empires vs small groups that are just trying to avoid total subjugation. Not as exciting imo
>>
>>621159
For a sequel I just wish that CA would have some need for historical accuracy

>Russia

What mods? The thing that drives me crazy about it is not being able to split armies and garrison them wherever i want, having retarded construction and development trees and naval battles being fucking dumb with no good tactics except rushing and hoping to strike a good ramming.

i have a question about gladiatorial games: when did they stop? what made people enjoy them less? how related are they to medieval tournaments?
>>
>>623273
Disrupted trade networks, a paucity of wild animals and the church forbidding the practice. Also a smaller Urban population

You'd get similar things like fights and things but it be much smaller scale; bair-baiting, watching two warriors pummel the shit out of each other

They aren't related in anyway to medieval tournaments. Tournaments were mostly used to keep people sharp and in practice for battle, eventually becoming a bit more of an entertainment.

If you want something similar to a medieval sport the Roman cavalry troops would often dress in elaborate clothes and streaming banners and generally show off.
