About Fall of Rome
Fall of Rome is set in the 5th century, at the dawn of Dark Ages Europe. From the power vacuum created by the collapse of the Western Roman Empire, twelve historical kings including Arthur of the Celts and Atilla the Hun struggle for dominance across Germania, Gaul, Italia, and other historical regions in an engrossing game that involves not only intense battles, but political maneuvering, economic development, espionage, spying, and plenty of intrigue in the negotiations and deal-making between players. There is also present an element of the mythos of the period, as heroes of each kingdom can venture to recover powerful artifacts such as Excalibur or the Sword of Mars (legend has that it was possessed by Atilla) from their mythical guardians. Fall of Rome is true strategy, that is, turn based strategy. The twelve players in any one contest begin the game on the same day, each has an equal number of turns, and the game ends with a victor after no more than 24 turns. In any one turn each player issues more than a dozen commands to his varied forces. These include ordering the movement and specific battle tactics of armies across a map of ancient Europe, commanding the noble court, attempting assassinations, sabotage or other espionage, gleaning divinations from the high priestess, and issuing commands to improve defense and economic output of their civilization. Each player chooses a time at his convenience within the 72 hour period between turns to plan his strategy and issue his commands using the intuitive graphic user interface. The game is browser-based so there is nothing to buy at a store and no large files to download. More information is available at www.fallofromegame.com.
