Europa Barbarorum II

A total conversion of Medieval II Total War

Auferre trucidare rapere falsis nominibus imperium, atque ubi solitudinem faciunt, pacem appellant.

To steal, to butcher, to plunder, is called the false name empire, and where they make a desert, they call it peace.

Calgacus in Tacitus Agricola 30.6

About the project

Europa Barbarorum II is a total conversion modification (mod). It covers roughly the same time period as the Imperial Campaign included with Rome: Total War, but made for use with Medieval 2 Total War: Kingdoms.

Contrary to what the name might imply, Europa Barbarorum is not solely focused on barbarian factions. The name was derived from the roots of the project when our desire was to portray barbarians more accurately, but 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: Total War. 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 ahistorical representations everywhere on the map. As it became clear that CA would not use this sort of information, the group decided to transform the project into a modification.

Europa Barbarorum I created for R:TW has received critical acclaim and has been downloaded well over 100,000 times for each version. Europa Barbarorum II created for Medieval 2 Total War: Kingdoms aims to surpass everything in Europa Barbarorum I.
