    Default Rome II's regions and their present-day equivalents! Help!

    Hi guys,

    I hope I'm posting in the right place.

    I'm very exited for the release of Rome II in a couple of weeks and decided to brush up a bit on the history of the era.

    What I'm looking for essentially is a comparison between the regions and factions set during the campaign of the game and the current countries and nations these regions and factions roughly correspond to today.

    I don't need a large volume of information regarding each faction, just a short description of what these factions are known as today ( Example: Gauls are today's Frenchmen and Gaul was what is now France (give or take).

    Could someone point me to a website or a thread that would help me with my personal research?

    Thank you!

    This will help you identify what the RTW 2 factions are going to be When you get to that site you will see a list of the factions. Click on the faction name, and you will get details, including a map of its location. See, the Total War folks ma

    In those simple times there was a great wonder and mystery in life. Man walked in fear and solemnity, with Heaven very close above his head, and Hell below his very feet. God's visible hand was everywhere, in the rainbow and the comet, in the thunder and the wind. The Devil too raged openly upon the earth; he skulked behind the hedge-rows in the gloaming; he laughed loudly in the night-time; he clawed the dying sinner, pounced on the unbaptized babe, and twisted the limbs of the epileptic. A foul fiend slunk ever by a man's side and whispered villainies in his ear, while above him there hovered an angel of grace . . .

    To be honest you would have to wait until the polities of the High Middle Ages before you saw any real correlation with modern states.
    At the end of the day politics is just trash compared to the Gospel.

    True. But many settlements in Rome II have been inhabited since the Neolithic period. And some like Aarhus could have been but there's no hard evidence.

    Well, its nice to see someone so enthusiastic. A game is already inspiring you to educate yourself, before it even comes out!

    Haha yeah I've always liked history! Thank God for forums where people could share their knowledge, I got some amazing answers on the TWCenter and Total War Wiki, although I also got some lazy answers like " look it up in Wikipedia".

    The real trouble is a lot of the ethnic tribes (not as many as you'd think) have merged into nations we know today. Iraq is a good example of taking several different groups and putting them in one border.
