About This Content

This is a tale of revival, resurrection and revenge; the chronicle of how the greatest adversary of King Arthur came into power – and the terrible price he had to pay.

Our journey begins in Eboracum, in one of the greatest cities built in the Roman provinces of Britannia. But that was a long time ago, and Eboracum slowly turned into a magnificent graveyard of marble palaces, populated by the living, breathing ghosts of a fallen empire. Until a young monarch in the south, a Briton called Arthur pulled the enchanted sword out of the stone and changed everything.

And now, after the catastrophe has struck in the south and the Once and Future King lies wounded, the time is right to make the former provinces great again. The fate of the Romans lies in the hands of a noble man called Septimus Sulla. Betrayed and full of anger, he embarks on his quest to restore the glory of Eboracum. Nothing will deter him: he will wage war against both the savages of the north and his fellow nobles; he will unearth the secrets of Hadrian’s Wall and he will even venture into the mists of the underworld to find to the fabled ghost legions of Rome.

Key features:

  • Join Septimus Sulla on his road to glory and darkness… and witness the rise of the most frightening emperor who has ever walked the land of Britannia.

*Minor Spoiler Alert!*

This game is fantastic, with varying diffuculty levels allowing vast sweeping battles for the Casual Player who just wants to give some orders and then watch as his units slaughter the enemy, and extremely difficult random battles that will test your resolve and your will to survive the fall of Rome in one of her most far flung colonies. A deep and intriquing story with many choices along the way, ultimately leading to the foregone conclusion - Rome is dead, you are a ghost of rotting empire, and you are no Hero.

Would Commit Heresy in the name of preserving the Light of Civilization again.

*Minor Spoiler Alert*
Picked this up on summer sale and I must say always a classic to see how decadent the Roman people became even in crisis it is hard to convince them to save themselves. The ending and game itself does really reflect the title symbolically and literally. Symbolically because Rome is dead and gone and nothing will change that no matter how much its clung to. Literally because you can turn your army into an undead one (and who can resist an undead Roman Legion?) and your wife can become a spirit possessing a woman (creepy yes but I blame Hadrian). Overall the battles are challenging and can be difficult but not impossible provided you play your cards right.

*Moderate Spoiler Alert*
But something that pulled me in was how this was written (voice actors sound annoying but that is my opinion). At one point when you are meeting with the Senate the leader of one of the Families accuses you of being a source of evil and will bring ruin upon them. This is reinforced by someone in the room having a vision of it at that time. Now pretty much through the whole game I assumed that the person who had that vision was just paid off or convinced into saying that even though said person didnt have that vision. But then that ending came about... makes one wonder if he did actually have a vision... I reccomend it because of the story.

Really great campaign. It's quite short, anyway, but really worth the price.
