RED SUN RISING (created by Baronic)
It is a grim year, and the red sun is
rising, as the fields will be strewn with the bodies of young men. Six strong
nations, battling out for the supremacy of the italian peninsular, and only one
faction will survive.
Rome is besieged on all fronts, and
the senate SPQR will find it it difficult to face its enemies. But it can
probably outlast them, as the lands around it is rich with resources. It will
take time, but then, as they say, Rome wasnt built in a day.
Roman Julii, situated at the northern area, are practically next
door to the barbarian Gauls. The threat of extinction is huge indeed. But if
they can conquer the barbarians, the entire northen italy would be theirs for
The Roman Scipii, have much to contend
with, especially the SPQR. Only wits, and an army of superior cavalry will save
They have good infantrymen. They have cavalry.
But the one thing they dont have, is good missile units, and of course, living
space. They will have to act quick, and decisively, and destroy one of the
southern factions for resources.
The barbarian gauls have
the powerful berserkers. The Roman Julii are the only faction standing in their
way for a proper foothold in roman lands. Then, even rich Rome will not
withstand the onslaught.
The Greeks have good cavalry,
superior missile units, and strong melee units. By all rights, the roman lands
should be theirs. But caught between the onslaught of Roman Brutii and Roman
Scipii, the Greeks will have to rely not on brute strength, but sheer cunning.
