Europa Barbarorum modification for Rome: Total War
Features Factions Gallery Downloads Forum Contacts Links
to the Europa Barbarorum website! Europa Barbarorum is a modification of Rome: Total WarTM, a game by The Creative Assembly, that is motivated by the desire to provide Rome: Total War players with a more fun, challenging, realistic, and historically accurate gaming experience. Europa Barbarorum is a total conversion modification (mod), though it covers roughly the same time period as the Imperial Campaign included with Rome: Total War.

Contrary to popular opinion, Europa Barbarorum is not solely focused on barbarian factions (though the name was derived from the roots of the project when our desire was to portray barbarians more accurately). Europa Barbarorum goes to great lengths to portray all factions correctly, including Rome.

The Europa Barbarorum project started in January 2004 as a team with the intent of informing The Creative Assembly about the historical nature of the "barbarian" factions in Rome: TW. Our aim was to gather as large an amount of historical information as we could and pass it on to the Creative Assembly, prior to R:TW's release, in order for their portrayal of the "barbarian" factions in the game to be more accurate.

Later, the team expanded their aim to also correcting the ahistorical representation of Egypt, and several other aspects concerning other factions. As it became clear that CA would not use this sort of information in R:TW, the group decided to transform the project into a modification. Our effort has grown from this starting point to become what is possibly the largest R:TW mod project in development.

Update: You may have noticed that the website has been intermittently unavailable and that it went down over the night. The reason is an error at the our hosting provider which eventually resulted in our server being completely wiped out. We are working hard to restore our files from backups and get the server in proper working order again, but until we are done some files may remain unavailable or otherwise inaccessible. Additionally, since our server outage is part of a wider problem with many other servers at the host data center being affected, the server may be a bit slow due to heavy network traffic at the host data center as other customers try to recover their servers as well.

We are very sorry, not in the least because the server admins could have been enjoying a nice comfortable Sunday lie in.

Other news: the hosting provider of experienced a problem with one of their routers resulting in a very slow forum. Fortunately this is now fixed. This is unrelated to our own server woes: the ORG is not going anywhere and hopefully blessed with unfailing uptime for years to come.
