SPQR since I never tried the mod (planning to once theres more stuff completed) what date does the mod start with? Rome Total War : Barbarian Invasions starts in 363 after Chr. so I assume BI uses an date close to that? Correct me if Im wrong.
Still, Decebal ruled Dacia in 87-106 after Chr. Using him in the mod wound't seem historical accurate. The aurelian retreat happened in 271 but we're still too far from 363. It's pretty late now for me so I don't know how much accurate my historical dates are.
EDIT: Dug out some information ... by 336 Dacia was free of Romans. By that time we had influences from looter and raiding nations. Dont know If I expressed my idea that good.
EDIT 2: As for dacian helmets I found a royal helmet http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/0/02/Royal_Dacian_Helmet_Cotofenesti.jpg/200px-Royal_Dacian_Helmet_Cotofenesti.jpg
EDIT 3: Regarding Dacian chiefs. I found out the following:
->Diegis was a Dacian chief, general and brother of Decebalus
->Vezina was the Dacian high priest during the reign of Decebalus, having the second most important place in the state, after the king. He took part in the Battle of Tapae.
I did manage to found some more names but I coundt find who where they serving.
EDIT 4: Dacian Banner: http://www.gk.ro/sarmizegetusa/armata_daca/tricolorul_dacic.jpg
... The colours on the background are Romania's colours but those 2 heads I believe they are a Dacian banner/symbol. Maybe put those 2 heads on a red or black background flag?
EDIT 5 (LOL sorry for that many but double posting is not allowed) : I ve said earlier Dacia had influences from other nations. Those are: Celts, Germans, Greeks, Iranians (I just found out about this one o.O), Indo- europeans, Slaves .
Also: one more ( I think its a banner LOL ) http://www.enciclopedia-dacica.ro/eng/pic2.jpg
EDIT 6: One more Dacian helmet http://www.enciclopedia-dacica.ro/armata_daca/coif_sigla.jpghttp://www.enciclopedia-dacica.ro/
