    Its "Europa" Barbarorum then my guess is that another N-W European or Spanish faction will be there and not something from the east (no offence). My guess is a Belgian or another Germanic nation is coming up next in the previews.

    But to be honest I am happy with every faction the EB have in mind and published so far. They are all great and exciting to me. Would be fun something related to the Batavii being published/mentioned within a Germanic tribe.

    Unfortunately, yes. Such a pity that Syracuse had that long lived ruler and then were pretty much absorbed into Rome afterwards. I suspect that in an alternate history with a more aggressive ruler and more time they could have easily moved out and asserted hegemony of at least the island of Sicily if not an even greater area. Possibly many of the greek cities and towns in the western mediterranean. We will never get the chance to see that.

    Its horribly black and muddy kinda like everything from Doom 3. So I'd imagine that the last faction is Hell.

    well, since you brought it up, I'll quote myself from the twitter discussion:

    I can just see that one:

    unless you mean as in south of the mediterranean, in which case we could be looking at Arabianz or some other group.

    I would be tempted to suggest the font style could indicate the cultural identity of the occultus faction but I tried that last time and suggested the Mauryans were actually Celts... Oops.

    By the font I would say a faction from the Iberian peninsula.

    Also posted this in the "New Factions" thread:

    I just noticed bobbins occultus symbol has a bird of some kind in it. I have highlighted it for people:

    Attachment 3095

    If you can't see it too well check out bobbins homepage, its much clearer there.

    Does anyone know much apology ornithology? From what I can see it looks like some kind of raptor, and what little I do know leads me to suggest its from warmer climes.

    I agree, I was going to suggest it's Atropatene based on that logic as the eagle was the Achaemenid banner in battle although I will have to look up Iranian wildlife to be sure.

    Welcome to the forum by the way!

    If I see this correctly, and if it´s a bird, I think the beack looks like a vulture´s.
    Weren´t they part of Zoroastrianism, consuming the dead exposed on a dakhma?
    If they were influenced by this religion in this period (I´m far from being an expert)
    this could also be hint on Media Atropatene.

    What do you mean, look up Iranian wildlife? At that time, eagles existed anywhere on the planet (except for the arctic zones). Iran, specifically, boasts the largest subspecies of the Golden Eagle.

    I am assuming the Occultus faction is Atropatene and therefore I assumed a species of raptor native to Iran would fit the illustration.

    The sad thing is, Taksashila was not the impossible faction we were never going to guess, it's this next one! Whatever it may be!

    Actually it was, most people kept on thinking any Indian faction was impossible due to culture limits our that the only faction there had to be the Mauryans, hence why it was a faction that barley anyone guessed.

    don't believe him! this is morosian disinformation!
    i can remember precisely that some team member said the indians are NOT the faction noone ever will guess (noewg-faction? ;D) shortly after the preview!
    also foot said they would NOT tell which it was before the release, to achieve maximum surprise!

    So the last occultus faction will not be announced? We will have to wait till the release?

    Also, bobbin, can you rule out the Arevaci, Belgae and Atropatene as the occultus? I'm not asking you to rule them in or out completely as EBII factions, just say if the occultus Sig does not represent them if anything to save us constantly suggesting them.

    No, I said that about the Gandharan faction as at the time we didn't know if we were going to make a preview for them.

    Sure, it is neither of those factions.

    I've given you a tiny helping hand as I've reuploaded my sig in png forum, the old jpg one had suffered some form of compression when it was uploaded which meant you had no change of getting anything from it.

    I increased brightness and contrast in photoshop and it says:


    "Nice try, but that is not going to work".

    :D



    Anyway, I think it's either a bird or the flying spaghetti monster.
