Description
The game, Thairacus, that we are currently developing, is a MMO Total War-style game, with open sandbox exploration and a universe to explore. It is set in Ancient Greece, but in this world, all of the myths are facts, and the Ancient Gods and Monsters are locked in War that lasts for eternity. Choose your side, and train to join the battles. Rise in the ranks to become the greatest warrior ever known. The game is almost completely unguided, relying on the players' decisions to determine the future. Explore the world of Ancient Greece, and discover the Ancient Secrets. Guided by Prophecies, lead your factions to victory against your enemies, and create alliances to last a lifetime.

In our Game, we want to model gameplay after a half-mix of Total War and Skyrim, adding our style and flavour to the game. The entire game is open sandbox, allowing your armies to go as they please, and conquer the world. Your actions affect the entire future of the game, not allowing anyone to predict what happens next. Your explorations through the world uncover mysteries and powers, altering the story again. The entire game is soaked through with prophecies, fortelling great achievements and losses. Choose your Class (God, Titan, Giant, or Ancient One) and Faction (individuals Gods, Titans, Giants, and Ancient Ones). Train and join the armies for your Faction and rise through ranks based on your military prowess. Over each Campaign (time span undetermined - only a span of time in which score (based on victories, losses, kills, and wars won and lost) is accumulated and given in a leaderboard for individual, Faction, and Class) fight to come out on top, and be known as the Best. If you are exceptionally talented and renowned, you may apply as an Elite or a Gifted (gifted are the specific warriors of the Class's Patron) and recieve skills and fame.

English is only language at the moment. others to be decided at a later time. we are only in beginning stages, at design and visuals.

The closest mix between Skyrim and Total War... I know this! MOUNT AND BLADE!! It sounds like your making another M&B. Not to worry, the game is very open to modding! Also, TaleWorlds is coming out with a new one -- BANNERLORDS.

I am very sorry that I have not posted on here in a LONG time. When I left, i had said that we were working on concept art and the specifics of the geographical and technical properties. In the time that I was inactive, I have not a chance to further the project whatsoever, and so I am going to continue work very soon.

Hello, is this thread still actual?
Are you, Ethanstarr, still working on the project?
If so, could we know more about the project avancement?

I must say that I love the ancient time setting (I'm such a geek for such things) but I'd like also that you would pin out about the games features quite a bit, I know you are in early-development phase.

I wish you all luck with this mate! I'll definitely be following this.

I don't know if you're kidding me but if you're not I should say that it's very easy to have ideas but materialize/realize them is much more difficult and I don't have any idea of the whole process so ......... but if I could help it would be with great pleasure :) :) :)

you should start a kickstarter-project for Thairacus ....

1) Yes, this is what I mean. I think that it would be fantastic to think/create such a society (with of course a big realistic touch of what we know about greek antiquity , if you did not yet just read Thucydide "la guerre du péloponnèse" (sorry it's in french :)) and you will at least have a view of some aspects of this time).
