Done:

Carthage
Rome
Seleucids
Ptolemies
Macedon

The Hellenic Kingdoms and both Greek states factions won't be playable at the start (only later swap campaigns), so do they need descriptions at all? It would be quite difficult as well considering the variety of factions they comprise- it would sound very artificial and strange and could surely not be written in the style I've used thus far. That would leave, from playable factions, for now:

Parthia
Armenia
Pontos

I'm not sure what how the Barbarian tribes are going to be portrayed in 1.0, are they already playable (since ahowl11 described them as shadow factions, too)? As far as I'm concerned Tekowiāt might be a better choice than myself to write the descriptions/introductions for these three Eastern factions :) (messaged him).

More seriously, I'm liking it so far. :)

Thanks  :) Unfortunately Tekowiat doesn't seem to have been online recently and ahowl11's unit list doesn't really tell me if the Barbarians or the three Greek superfactions are in any way playable in 1.0 ;)

They will be playable. Just give a short paragraph on each sub faction within these superfactions. So Hellenic Kingdoms would have a short description for Pergamum, Epirus, Bactria and Cyrene etc
God, Family, Baseball, Friends, Rome Total War, and Exilian. What more could I possibly need?

An interesting bit for the superfactions might be to talk about how different citystates (for example) were governed.

Did you still have all the different types? Tyrant, Oligarchs, Democracies etc

Yes indeed you would have that. Perhaps there is also a way to represent that in-game?

Here's a complete list:
