So I realized the need to make available a thread where we can easily access the final drafts of all the factions we've hammered out so far for convenience's sake, and had some free time on hand (abundant free time, in fact). So see below... (I haven't done all the drafted ones yet because this kind of job takes a ridiculously long period of time to finish, not to mention the tedium of coding the same stuff over and over again... /whine)



The Western Roman Empire


The Eastern Roman Empire


The Sassanid Empire


The Huns


The Alans


The Vandals


The Berbers


The Copts


The Gepids


The Sklaveni/ Venedae


That's all, folks!

Oh, that's fun, good thing that it will get more filled up as the factions are completed.

I really have nothing to say at this point.
Other than this.
