Julii Gameplay


The Julii start with a strong foothold on northern Italy, and therefore serve as a gateway into the German and Gallic regions of the north. Their color is scarlet, and their thirst for power and blood matches that shade quite well. They vie for power in the north, then they should turn their attention to the south to their Roman allies - or rivals.

Overall Unit Summary:

The Julii have the same advantages as the other Romans. They are an extension of the Senate and therefore should obey their whim. To do this, they have the ability to muster the same powerful, disciplined and varied units that the S.P.Q.R., Brutii and Scipii can. Their strength is in infantry, and they are moderate in cavalry.

Arretium (capital, Large Town), Arminium (Large Town)
