Yes another one.

However I liked the idea of a game set in an 'expansionist' arena. The idea is simple - we are the Senate. However it's a Senate with rules...and um without them so to speak. Unlike real Rome, each province sends a Senator. Some provinces are stable, some provinces aren't. Some provinces and Senators aren't Wink There could be people playing client state rulers and so on. And there are wars, because they can be fun Grin

Also the Senate 'elects' an Emperor from amongst their own. I had thought about setting it just after the death of Caesar and the transition from Republic to Empire to reflect the state of things when setting a game up Smiley

Thoughts?

I need to decide how the provinces are to be split. They probably won't be exactly the same, but can then be subdivided if more people join up.

Volo eligi senatorem Italiae Superioris, si possibile est.

I am VERY interested!

For a game kicking off in 44BC after the death of Caesar. The light blue areas are tributary states outside the Empire...for now.

Of course we could do the whole thing with the Holy Roman Empire too Tongue

     I'd be interested in this. If we kick off from 44 BC, I want Lusitania. That's where my grandmother's family is from. Tongue

I'd go for Cyrenacia...you know because it's more mixed.

Actually, I'd totally be up for Holy Roman Empire instead of Roman Empire, myself.  Religious intrigue and dynasties, oh my!

I've always liked the idea of something self contained. The thing is I'd play the Holy Roman Empire along the lines of the German Confederation which suceeded it. And the confederation itself pretty much was self serving trying to put down the liberal revolutions etc. So the idea could be combined I guess.
