I also have a question about Lacontia or however you say it. Why do they have two kings? More importantly, what are their origins?

Quote from: "Jubal"
The Aurothians are a very, very ancient people; they also sit on a crossroads between the eastern world (as shown by the nearby Hematites), the Southern Sea nations (Such as the Lusitanians), and trade routes from places like the Commagene Empire. As such, they have a very rich and diverse history and draw on many other cultures to create quite an unusual fusion. Their city of Estarinia has been built over many generations, and having never been destroyed has vast undreground mazes of tunnels, particularly in the castle.

Aurothians consider themselves to be the oldest surviving nation; certainly they were never absorbed by the Lusitanians at their height. Legend has it that once there was a great island in the middle of the southern sea; the Kings of this isle, Nurelon, were the most powerful of all the rulers of their day. They built a vast city, called Huralia, beneath a large mountain. Eventually there was a great civil war there, between those loyal to the Kings and those loyal to the High Priests. Eventually the Kings were forced to flee and continue their war from afar, fighting around the shores of the sea until eventually, in the middle of the night, they found a wooded hillside beneath a second great mountain. As the stars were so bright in this new place, the settlement they founded there was named Estarinia, and bears that name to this day. And what of Nurelon? The earth was angered by the wrongs of the priests and punished their falsehoods; the mountain at the centre of their realm spat fire, and the once great nation sank beneath the waves. Perhaps this will one day happen to Estarinia, who can tell? Nevertheless, the Aurothians are truly and rightly proud of their heritage.

They tend to a higher degree of learning than most nations, prizing that above discipline or the arts of war - they fight with finesse, using fast horses and daring bands of archers, rather than the clunking heavy knights of other kingdoms. The leadership of the Kingdom is done firstly by the King, but he is advised by the Rinterns, who the academics and merchants of the town elect from amongst the old noble families. In this way those who provide the wealth are made to feel they have some say in matters (though since the candidates must be of noble blood it makes little real difference). Popular pastimes for the poor include archery and rabbit-trapping; for the rich, alchemy is very much in vogue as is hawking (Aurothians are known for breeding the finest hunting-birds in the world).
Thanks, its good to know about them now. They're now even more interesting to me.

A little bit.

I'm sorry to tell you all this but it was revealed a long time ago that this would not have outstanding modding capability. Look it up on Youtube if you want proof. Type in Shogun 2 Total War interview.

I personally wanted Rome 2 over this.

I have a question about the Aurothians. So could you explain their culture and lifestyle please. Could you explain their history as well. Also, why do they wear the armor that they do?

 I listened to Windhawk briefly about them, but don't completely understand them.

They're my favorite faction.  :P

Basically, just explain all you can.
