RTWH is pretty much compelte, but Rome II seems to offer many more factions, some fo which have not already been covered here.

So, for those with a penchant for writing and the desire to earn a custom title (as per the rules here), the chance of easy pickings has arrived.

Sega and CA have released details of some factions for the upcoming games. Those which have not been covered here will be needed. So place your orders, pick your faction, and feel free to whip up a faction history and sketch out a faction overview that needs but flesh and details when the game comes out.

I can do one for the Iceni, and when I am done with that if nobody has claimed it in the meantime, the Suebi.

Histories are about as far as we can get until the game comes out. That is the default setting for a faction at this moment. So when someone claims a faction, they are stating they will write the history portion, unless they specifically mention 'overview'.

I miss spoke and was unclear, my apologies. I was referring to the histories. The link had the links to the faction histories as well. And by the beginning of the faction, I meant real life..

And thanks for helping clear that up Terikel.

Since Terikel's snapped up the Iceni, I'll sit tight and just offer feedback.

Oh, you are back.

You can have the Iceni, if you want- they are your people after all.

I can take the Suebi.

Let me know if you prefer this.

Ah, I didn't mean to take them from you. Sorry for the misunderstanding. I have no actual wish to do them - although I will if you would prefer I did than you. I will offer what I have learnt either way.

I'll do a brief history of the Aecidian dynasty for Epirus. Might also do a factional overview as well once Rome 2 comes out since I've decided to play them as my second faction after my first playthrough with Rome.

Also, even though they're not playable (yet ) you can put me down for a faction overview of the Seleucid Empire
