Thessaly and Thrace/Odrysian Kingdom Faction Idea

Recommended Posts

I know the odds of anyone taking this seriously enough to even consider adding them into the game is almost none I just thought maybe haha. I just think as the game did originally have only one Greek and one Celtic faction it wouldn't hurt to add another different Greek faction and a mashup of Celtic, Greek and Persian influences in the Thracians. Even if the Thessaly faction idea is pointless I think the Thracian/Odrysian Kingdom is unique enough to warrant a place in 0 A.D. But please bare in mind I am no historical expert and there could be things I have listed that might not be accurate.

 

Thessaly

Icon could be a Horse's Head

Strengths

- Good Melee Cavalry i.e Lancers and Swordsmen 

- An ability that adds faster production of Cavalry Units

- Cavalry Have a Slightly Better Line of Sight 

Weaknesses

- Hoplites and Melee Infantry are weaker than traditional Athenian or Sparta troops

- Can't think of more but obviously the faction would be balanced

Additional Troops

Thessalian Riders (Sword Cav)

Thessalian Lancers (Slight buff to the normal Thessalian Lancers)

Thessalian Hoplite (Like normal Hoplites only a little weaker)

Heroes

I can't say I know any Thessalian Heroes

 

Thrace/Odrysian Kingdom (Fusion of Celtic/Greek and Persian Influences)

Icon Rampant Thracian Pegasus 

Strengths 

- Strong Swordsmen/ Flaxmen

- Access to both Greek and Persian Mercenaries

Weaknesses

- As like the Romans the Thracians have no archers

- Rely solely on Slingers and Peltasts for their ranged

- No champion cavalry maybe

Additonal Troops

Thracian Falxmen

Thracian Kingsguard (Champion Swordsmen Unit)

Thracian Swordsmen (Citizen Soldier Version Slightly Stronger)

Heroes

Teres I

Sitacles

Seuthes III

I mean I can completely understand not adding Thessaly they are similar to the Athenians and Spartans despite having good cavalry but the Thracians are so unique they warrant an add

The team says this: We aren't adding more faction by now.( may be after beta phase)

darn that sucks but ofc I understand would be annoying adding another 2 factions. Maybe one day Thessaly or Thrace will make an appearance

Pre Macedon they had the Thessalian League if I am not mistaken, forgive me if I am wrong I don't know loads about Greek history

To be fully faction needs some requirements 

 

  • champions (2)
  • heroes(2 or 3)
  • a Wonder.

By the way.

Look up Jason of Pherae and his son, Alexander of Pherae. Thessaly was briefly one of the strongest polities in Greece under their leadership.

Idk about Thessaly but for Thrace also the Faction Icon would be more a Thracian Pegasus

 

Champion

- Thracian Kingsguard ( Similar to the Blackcoats possibly with more armour etc.)

- Thracian Champion Peltasts ( Basically a Thracian style Champion Peltast)

Heroes

- Teres I

- Sitacles 

- Seuthes III 

Wonder 

- Possibly Like a Temple or Statue of Thrax

Delenda Est looks really cool, and your guys textures are insanely good. I would say maybe use the Thracian Pegasus as their icon just think having an animal icon always looks fantastic and the Axe is not originally Thracian whereas the Thracian Pegasus is a Thracian design
