Hello all who appreciate the game Rome: Total War, it's mod Rome Total Realism and Ancient History!

I am ahowl11, a humble citizen of the United States, and one who's been trying to make his own mod for almost five years now. Ideas bounced around for most of that time, until I developed a keen interest in the old mod, Rome Total Realism Platinum Edition. From there I went about modding it and then Total War Rome 2 came out and I thought my dreams had come true. Instead they turned into a nightmare with how bad that game was  >:(

So alas, I turned back to Rome Total Realism, and made a small RTR 0.5 campaign right here at these forums in Exilian. From there, it was a year of constant circles, as I could not decide what to do next. People came, and people left but I stuck to my dream of remaking RTR. Then in May of 2015, Anarchon and I got together and started this thing from scratch. We implemented a new map, decided the faction list and I added all features from BI and ALX, and was able to get the mod to work with the ALX engine. From there Anarchon became ill and left, and me and a few others implemented all BI and ALX units into the mod, as well as reskinning and renaming many vanilla units. We also implemented a new recruitment system. From there unit cards were made and our first public beta was released in April. Since then, Emodude, Xeofox, Aaronbarron, Quinn_Inuit and I have been hard at work trying to make this game more challenging and beautiful.
Now thanks to Jubal and the Exilian community, RTR is back at Exilian, and I am now proud to announce that this will become the new home for RTR, so fans, players, modders, historians and enthusiasts are all welcome to this forum to discuss things about the mod, books they have read, shows they've watched and finally just enjoy being in community with others who have the same interest!

Please introduce yourself, and check back often as this community and mod about ancient history continues to grow!

Ave.  Vincentius here.  Got started on RTW by my brother, and was hooked quickly.  I mainly play factions with heavy infantry, which means Rome, Seleucia, or Macedon.  I have covered the entire RTW map as the Julii, Brutii, Greece, Seleucia, and Macedon.  Most of that was on E/E, I mainly play M/M now.

Hello! Philip here (nickname Sheridan here and on TWC). Total War modder since three years back, working on projects such as Ancient Empires and Rise of Mordor. Was invited by Ahowl11 to try out this mod.

Howdy all. FATW beta tester and humble contributor. I played RTRPE with relish years ago. I am sorry to learn that Rome 2 was such a bust, but happy to learn that the one TW game I own is still the basis for so many excellent mods. I look forward to testing this mod, and contributing in what other ways I can.

Hiya, I'm GUNIN! I was introduced to the mod a few days ago by Ahowl. I'm hoping to provide some meaningful contributions to the RTR project on the code side of things. I'm also a hobbyist writer, artist, and Let's Player.
