Download Links and Mod Information
« on: February 13, 2015, 08:43:09 AM »

Hi guys! This is a mod about the confilct between the Greek city-states and the Persian Achaemenid Empire in the years 495-479BC. The mod takes place in 485BC, between the Battle of Marathon and the Battle of Thermopylae. It will feature historical locations, persons and items, but it will not be defined by them. We try to combine historical accuracy with a fun gameplay and a novel experience.

So, let's start off with a little bit of history, in order to give to those who are interested in that department some information. This is a sumarised history of the Greco-Persian Wars.
(click to show/hide)

This is, more or less our historical context. The source of this information is Heritage History, so whoever wants to read the full account of the war, along with images and tables with battles and other interesting things, just head over there and enjoy!

Now, to mod-related stuff. I hope that all things will be covered in time, spanning from troops and armory to scenes and dialogs, Here is the official progress report. It will be updated as we go on with the mod.

Items (weapons, armors, helmets etc)                                                       
100%  FINISHED!
Troops and various units(mercenaries, hoplites and Amazons)

Scenes
