In a time of turmoil and the ever-growing shadow of the Roman Empire. Romans with their vast greatness and power were not the only people of honor, culture, ingenuity and bravery. Many got tired of Roman cruelty, as the years went by and the Romans became more interested in subjugating everything in their path, rather maintaining their sovereignty and co-existing with other nations.
Once Rome had respect for greatness in others, but that was no more. Greed and madness preceded the name of Rome, some nations were left with no choice than to raise arms and challenge their oppressors. Others preferred to fight and die than let their heritage be lost to tyrannical madmen. In times of struggle, many nobles seized the opportunity and established strongholds throughout the lands. No one can fight them all, and some just might survive long enough to alter the balance of power in the world.
Leaders have risen from Vikings, Egyptians, Franks, Goths, Celts, Byzantines, Gauls, Saracens, Thracians and Persians – will they kill each other or live to challenge Rome. Only time will tell.
