does RTW have lots of female generals to play?

i hope their 3d images look good

and there were Amazons in roman times

who else: Diana, Helen,

should even be a jesus, though i think he is a guy

say - does jesus put an appearance into RTW?

since the game ends at 14AD i doubt yuo'll see jesus as a general of some sort,he would still be a 14 year old kid http://www.totalwar.org/forum/non-cgi/emoticons/tongue.gif.

If palmyra was in i expect to see some female units,and i hope the female generals get their own model http://www.totalwar.org/forum/non-cgi/emoticons/tongue.gif

Jesus were actually born 10-20 years earlier than we think,

Make him a general and you can start oversea invasions without ships. Your men just walk over water http://www.totalwar.org/forum/non-cgi/emoticons/joker.gif http://www.totalwar.org/forum/non-cgi/emoticons/joker.gif

Yes and make him be able to resurrect fallen generals.

And if things seriously go wrong he can call his dad to help him.

jezus: *crying* It's not fair the romans beaten my army and they had twice the men I had.
god: It's ok kid i'll settle this. *sends a lightning bold to rome that wipes out the city*
jezus: that's what you get when you mess with me

Joan d'Arc is about as close to the Rome:Total War period as Nefertiti.

Indeed, the same remark I wanted to point out ... The woman was dead and mummified long before.

05-22-2003, 04:26
Buodaciea's a little bit out of period too - although only 50 yrs or so - Cleo's the only one that's actually around.

05-22-2003, 05:18
Well if we miss Boudicca (game ends too early)
how about some good guys?

we must get Marius Sulla, Sertorius, the whole Tarquin mob, Pompey, Scipio Jnr and Snr and even Mark Athony

we're not too far from Alexander maybe.. (400 BC)
do we get Parmenion?

back to the girls: the oracle at delphi? there were virgins there i think.

do you guys have a favourite characte ryou want to see in the game?

05-22-2003, 05:52
First, I hope Marius will be in ... and of course, Burebista.

Alexander died around 323BC, no? Anyway, he was too much a mister nice-guy, so ... let him be ... dead http://www.totalwar.org/forum/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif

I want Cato to be in the game, he'll spam you to no end with messages saying "Carthago delenda est".

05-22-2003, 15:54
Female characters shouldn't be present in game IMO, unless as historical characters on the campaign...Cleopatra, Boudicca ect. Boudicca comes a few years after the game's time period ends, but it would still be cool if there was a British revolt historical campaign.

EDIT:Actually a Vestal Virgin unit might not be bad. (=

If anything, I think that Jesus will be an event, rather than a general. This game will be more high profile,and I doubt that CA would make such a blunder as making Jesus a general. Of course, I am sure you all knew this... http://www.totalwar.org/forum/non-cgi/emoticons/rolleyes.gif

05-23-2003, 08:40
Noooo Make Jesus a general

Don't you guys see the marketing opportunity created by controversial depictions

Marilyn Manson, Eminem etc...
Insult the church enough and you will have a sure-fire bestseller once the controversy gets broadcasted by the news Sales will skyrocket Imagine... A parental advisory label, the ultimate accomplishment of media

Just kidding... http://www.totalwar.org/forum/non-cgi/emoticons/joker.gif

Hmm, why not make Marilyn Manson a general? He`s out of the time frame, I know, but would add a lot of merchandising possibilities. He could make the soundtrack, too

General E. Presley.

Why not have the Cardigans as contubernalii? http://www.totalwar.org/forum/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif

Well if jesus had hanged around until the jewish revolt 30 years later he might have been able to band together some thugs and claim to be some sort of a general. There certainly were other fanatics/bandits/zealots mob armies around led by charismatic idealistic characters. (See Josephus).
