The same as vanilla Total War, but with a few more factions. It depends which one you get, I have the BI version, so I'll tell you that.

Some barbarian factions(Dacia and a few others) have been replaced with one faction named "Independent blahblahblah", where Pontus is there is now the "Amazons". In west Africa the Gorgons are found. The Bean Sidhe control the British isles, and the Valkyrie are in the north.

You can download it from quite a few places. Google it

Yes, as long as the other mods use a mod:switch. If the other mod changes the original files then you will need a clean copy.

You can download the Amazon Total War - Reignited release here:

http://rtw.heavengames.com/cgi-bin/forums/display.cgi?action=ct&f=33,7940,,10

The Reginited mod (aka ATW 6.0) is more archeologically and anthropologically based. Whereas the 3.0 is more based on fairy tales and Norse legends.

The Amazon Factions for Amazon 3.0c are

Bean Sidhe (as in Banshe)
Valkyrja (as in Valkerie)
Amazonia
Gorgon

The Amazon Factions for Amazon Total War - Reignited are

Geothe (or Jyazii)
Libyan Amazon
Thyssa Amazon
Amazonia

You can find their background stories here:

http://rtw.heavengames.com/cgi-bin/forums/display.cgi?action=ct&f=33,7943,,10

The rest of the factions are

Armenia
Carthage
Sarmatia
Gaul
Celt
German
Ptolemaic Egypt
Seleucid
Macedon
Greek States
Roman (as one faction)
Iberia
Numidia
Parthia
Thrace
Scythia

Many of those factions neighboring to Amazon factions can recruit some of the Amazon units.

Other non-Amazon factions can recruit Amazon or Amazon-like units through building-trees.

Still, there are quests where the Amazon Advanced tech units can be recruited only if your faction achieves certain milestones.

Ok, have I read this right? You don't need a totally clean RTW if you use mod:switch?

ATW will use its own data files, which means if you only modded your game through those text files, it shoulld work fine.

TG is absolutely right, ATW (both 3.0 and 6.0) are using its own sets of mod folders where the ATW specific files are located.

If your other RTW mods (none vanila RTW/BI stuff) are also mod-foldered, there should not be any problem.

If you have base folder file changes (like some altered RTW/BI files in the original RTW/BI folders, there might be problem, because both ATW mods still use some skeleton or animation files from the Vanila RTW/BI folder.

As long as these files in the RTW/BI folders are not changed, both ATW mods would still run.
