  1. ahowl11 HRTW Mod Leader

    Rome Total Realism Needs You!!

    Hello people of UNRV! I am ahowl11. My name says HRTW Mod Leader but that was an old name and if I can just have it changed to ahowl11 I'd appreciate it! Anyways, I am the leader of a mod called Rome Total Realism. It is a mod for the computer game, Rome: Total War. http://www.rometotalrealism.org/ The old RTR teams are gone now, and a new one has arisen with me starting the RTR Project. Our mod will be on a grand scale focusing on the entire history of the Greco-Roman world from the Rise of Alexander to the Fall of Rome. Right now we are only in our sixth month of development, but we already have a release out! http://www.twcenter.net/forums/showthread.php?643025-RTR-Project-Imperial-Campaign-v0-5-Released! Also a friend of ours has been playing it and posting his campaign to youtube https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLhjRGtB_rFAygivDhEZwd-ph48Rfg3fkm For our next version we are concentrating on the world of the Roman Republic and Hellenistic Kingdoms from 280 BC to the Marian Reforms. We are thinking about ending the game right before the Cimbri and Tetones made their invasion. We are in need of people who know their history on this time frame! Whether it be political, military, or geographical. The map will stretch from Iberia to India, and from Scandinavia to Ethiopia. We are looking to have a very diverse world filled with troop types, cities, characters and Kingdoms. Also if anyone here has 2d or 3d graphics talent, we are also in need of those skillsets! Please comment below or message me if you are interested regards, ~ahowl11

  5. Have you any connection with Roman Empire? Mine: I live in town Trencin (in Roman age named Laugaricio), modern Slovakia. In 179AD Romans defeated german tribes in this area and left inscription on the rock below the today Trencin Castle. Thanks to this inscription we know about settlement in this area what makes Trencin one of the oldest towns in central Europe. Marcus Aurelius planned to create a new province here, but died and Commodus withdrew from this area.

    Funny ancient history books

    Most of the discussions and reviews on UNRV deal with serious and/or scholarly topics. After posting the list of July book releases yesterday, I thought I'd post an alternative list of titles focusing on more humorous aspects of ancient and Roman history. These are not necessarily recent releases but a more general compilation (also, some of the titles may have already been reviewed). Enjoy and feel free to share further suggestions below! Laughter in Ancient Rome: On Joking, Tickling, and Cracking Up by Mary Beard Dangerous Days in the Roman Empire: Terrors and Torments, Diseases and Deaths by Terry Deary The Bloody Funny History of Rome by Brett A. Clark Stupid Ancient History by Leland Gregory The Classical Compendium: A Miscellany of Scandalous Gossip, Bawdy Jokes, Peculiar Facts, and Bad Behavior from the Ancient Greeks and Romans by Philip Matyszak Rome, Inc.: The Rise and Fall of the First Multinational Corporation (Enterprise) by Stanley Bing The Joy of Sexus: Lust, Love, and Longing in the Ancient World by Vicki León Working IX to V: Orgy Planners, Funeral Clowns, and Other Prized Professions of the Ancient World by Vicki León How to Mellify A Corpse: And Other Human Stories of Ancient Science & Superstition by Vicki León Uppity Women of Ancient Times by Vicki León The Naked Olympics: The True Story of the Ancient Games by Tony Perrottet Pagan Holiday: On the Trail of Ancient Roman Tourists by Tony Perrottet The World's Oldest Joke Book: Hundreds of Hilariously Terrible Ancient Jokes by Dan Crompton
