    Did anyone look at Bobbin's Year Seven EB Member sig? The background picture is the same color as his Occultus sig and it seems to represent the same picture.

    It doesn't represent the Silphium plant does it?

    I suppose this is tiger. And I think this is some Arabian faction.

    PS

    Tell me please, what does "Occultus" means? I thought that is how you call Bosphoran Kingdom, but now it seems this word stands for "unknown faction"

    "Occulutus" is latin for "hidden" or "secret".

    Just to be different I'm gonna say its a Silphium plant and the faction is Cyrene.

    Look at the background of Bobbin's EB Member signature right below the Occultus one. It is the same color and the pattern to the left of the word "Seven" looks very similar to the left side of his Occultus sig only rotated slightly.

    Moreover, if this connection is correct, the section to the left of the word "Year" looks exactly like the top of several depictions of the Silphium plant which appears on many coins from Cyrene.

    Here is a link that describes the plant and it's connection to the region. It also contains a few pictures of coins.
    http://www.sylphium.com/html/plant_silphium.php

    Hopefully I'm right. More than likely I'm just causing chuckles from the EB team.

    Just saying, but the year part is a different image file and differs for every member depending on which year he joined. As can be seen in my sig.

    note how he said "different image file" and not "different image" !

    No, but it has at least a similar font and colour. Actually I also thought there is a connection between both pictures but it does not percectly fit each other. I'm still pretty sure there is at least one horse on the picture.

    What is it with you lot and the fonts, you are always thinking there is a connection. FYI the font for the "Boii" text in your sig is the same as the one in mine (Rusticana).

    I'm speaking about font because I lacked another word in english for the... general theme how the lines are made? Sorry for the confusion. I'd not state they are the same in this regard anymore though.

    I see your reasoning but at least XSamartan said otherwise as far as I understand his posting:

    http://www.twcenter.net/forums/showt...11#post9924211

    I can't see how this is relevant for guessing this faction though. Thanks for the better quality picture by the way.

    How are these occultus signatures exactly work? Are they the real signature just blackened or could it e.g. only be a part of a complete picture/signature?

    That palette of ochre and white seems very "desert-y" to me too, I think we can slot a Nabataea-ish faction in now along side the Belgae-ish faction.

    Of course, it will be a steppe faction. Because no one expects as much.

    I'm going on the colors and say that it's a new Arabic faction so Saba has someone to contend with. Maybe Hadramaut, Qataban or Ma'in? The symbol is a life tree of some sort maybe?

    well, looks like a tree, i would guess a Boswellia sacra. That would mean an arabic faction, probably the source of Frankincense, Hadhramout.

    I think they were ruled out on the grounds of being too similar to Saba.

    Did you think was any connection to the Boswellia sacra, in other ways here i found a interesting history of use of the frankincense



    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    The lost city of Ubar, sometimes identified with Irem in what is now the town of Shisr in Oman, is believed to have been a centre of the frankincense trade along the recently rediscovered "Incense Road". Ubar was rediscovered in the early 1990s and is now under archaeological excavation.

    Damn it. I thought the last one was an ox and it indicated an Indian faction, but the whole "no Mauryan" thing diverted me. This time I've got no bloody idea at all.

    I imagine it will be somebody obscure, that very casual readers of history like me have never heard of, because all the obvious ones have been suggested by now. Somebody whose archaeological/historical information is greater than their fame, so the EB team have heard of them but us plebs haven't.

    Of course Ubar would bring a whole new meaning to "Occultus Faction". :)

    Ubar is not discovered at the small site at Shisr, which is no more than a small stop. It has some walls and towers and some minor structures within but it really is small. A little later during the same investigation (they used sattelite image analyses to find the sites) they actually found a bigger one a little north and west of modern day Salalah, which appears to have been called Saffara. This will most likely be the local province capital. However this region is one of those places we virtually have no information about. It's the last place where you'll have to look for a faction sadly. Probably will not even get a unique unit.
