about the game

The year is 399 BC, and Rome is poised for greatness.
However, its very existence balances on a knife-edge.

The Gallic Senones tribe, led by chieftain Brennus, are
newly settled in eastern Italy. Ambitious and fierce, they are but
a javelin-throw from the nascent republic.

The tyrannical Dionysius rules Syracuse with an iron fist.
He leads the war against Carthage, but his eyes range across the
Mediterranean as he considers future conquests.

Under the guiding hand of the great philosopher-statesman
Archytas, Taras in southern Italy is reaching the zenith of its
glory and power. Rome’s meteoric rise is cause for concern, to be
sure – perhaps an intervention is merited?

Meanwhile, Marcus Furius Camillus seeks the title and powers
of Dictator. His vision for Rome is grand indeed, but can it
survive the designs of the young republic’s neighbours?

A crossroads in history: a time of threat – and of

A time for the republic to rise.

The factions of Rise of the Republic are uniquely
replayable due to the new Government Actions options, which
replaces the Change Government system from prior ROME II campaigns.
These options provide unique new bonuses, albeit at a cost. Some
notable examples are:

  • Rome may appoint consuls or dictators in times of need
  • The Etruscans of Tarchuna can initiate the summit of Fanum
    Voltumnae, where decisions are made
  • The Samnites can rely on the ancient Ver Sacrum rite, to
    receive an instant army
  • The Insubres and Senones rely on druidic councils for
    divination and public support
  • Taras has access to court philosophers who greatly improve
    their research

Along with these, different factions have access to specific
dilemma chains such as:

  • Rome often is forced deal with domestic trouble that result in
    plebeians or patricians being happy or enraged.
  • Greek factions can influence the struggle of the Greek poleis
    back in Hellas.
