Duplicarius (4/14)



  1. The (in)famous Irish foot cataphracts from the first versions of EB. https://europabarbarorum.fandom.com/wiki/Dubosaverlacica_(Ebherni_Armoured_Shock_Infantry) Later removed because they were made up.
  2. Maybe these or the round pattern on cuirasses could be used for Gauls emblem? Since the current round shield is innacurate. Could also have the wheel of Taranis or one of the Gallic coins.
  3. The Extraordinarii were recruited exclusively from Rome's Itallic allies. So does not make sense as an upgrade for Roman Hastatii.
  4. This depends on the civ. It would be weird to turn the Machimoi into Greeks, or Roman Citizens into Extraordinari.
  5. I think it's possible Hieron sent mercenaries or native levies to Rome considering what you said. Livy does not say what people these slingers where. Polybius describes Peltasts instead of Slingers. The confusion could be because they sent slingers with shields.
  6. For the timeframe i think Syracusan slingers would be a better option; they were used by Rome in the Punic and Macedonian Wars. Or the Numidian slingers and archers from the siege of Numantia. Some Italic peoples like Ligurians and Picenes used slings; but i am not sure if they fought in the Roman army at the time.
  7. Personally i think it should only be avaliable to civs that have artillery.
  8. The Pyramid of La Danta, one of the biggest in the world. https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pirámide_de_La_Danta
  9. I think the building could still exist, but maybe called something other than blacksmith (Crafstman, armory).
  10. Not sure if it should have furnace. I think metal artifacts were not very common among Mayans, and the first ones date from classical period. Perhaps one of civ bonuses could be that they not use metal resource. But this type of gameplay might be hard to balance.
  11. An attempt at proto-germanic building names (using Wiktionary). House: Hūsą Farmstead: Hufą (Estate, farm, hall) Kurnahūsą(Granary) Field: Fuldō Civil Center: Fulkasrēdaz(Tribal Council) Corral: Hagô (enclosure, yard, pasture) Storehouse: Skattasfriþuz (shelter of riches) Outpost: Staupilaz (tower) Defense tower: Warīnīzstaupilaz (defense tower) Statue: Gudasbiliþī (God image) Market: Kaupôsmaþlą (Merchant's Gathering) Fortess: Burgz Dock:Habanō (Harbour, Haven) Wall: Wallaz Palisade: Tūną (Enclosure, Fence) Barracks: Druthislegra (War band's camp) Stable:Stallaz Temple: Hailagastadiz (Holy place) Smith: Smiþjǭ Arsenal: Wēpnasfriþuz (Weapons shelter) Great Hall: Kuningashallō (King's hall) Possible wonder: Kuningasgrabaz (King's grave), Samnungozbarwaz (Semmnones' grove), Þunrassūliz (Pillar of Þunraz), Grautazhaimaz (Great House)
