Tribes Of Britannia - Test Release v0.4 [IN DEVELOPMENT]


A project to bring iron age Britain to life in thrones of britannia

Hi there all!

this project has been a bit of a hobby of mine for a little while now and i have recently started it back up in production again.I feel the time period if fully fleshed out could provide thrones with a unique experiance.

currently available to players is the first module of the custom & multiplayer battles for the southern tribes with thier first round of units and i will be adding the other sub cultures with custom units as we go along into development. i have begun work on the grand campaign as you might be able to see from the map screenshots but i am not ready to make that available until the unit rosters have been fleshed out more for each subculture but progress is coming along nicely.

if you find this project interesting them please do feel free to get in touch with me about helping out. I am currently looking for a UI designer and artist to help out.

►Team Positions:
• DB Editing: Souron
• Startpos Editing: Souron
• 2d Art: Looking for assistance
• 3D Modeling: souron / Looking for assistance
• Animation: Looking for assistance
• Skinning: Looking for assistance
• Mapping: Looking for assistance with naming of towns
• Scripting: Possibly looking into this eventually
• AI: Looking for assistance
• Research: Looking for assistance
• SFX\Music editing: Looking for assistance

Let me know what you think and where you think changes and improvement could be made.

The setting for the mods campaign will be a few hundred years before the roman invasion and will contain a roman invasion event along with gaulic raiding parties as well. players will have access to play as any landed faction in game and the Romans will be available in custom battles.


one important note for this ^ i am no UI designer so all current faction flags, unit cards and uniform colours will be changed and the factions uniform colours in particular will be updated to reflect the tribes flag when i finally get them sorted.

@Souron Thank you for the answer.

I checked in to see if the mod has updated at all and when it hadn't I checked the comments and saw you haven't because of moving and all and that's all good. Then I saw your whole thing on making a poll about if the Romans should be an endgame threat or playable. I had the thought that you should make them and endgame threat, and after releasing the mod pretty much finished, have plans to make a submod that 1) changes the start date to the Roman invasion, 2) removes the endgame threat mechanic, and 3) makes the Romans playable just like how the Normans are in the ToB 1066 mod.

hi warofcard,

i think the gauls will more than likely be a custom battle only set of factions but the romans will have access to some auxiliry gaulic units.
warofcard Aug 11 @ 5:19am 
I am wondering if the gauls will still be in the mod?

Hi All,

For anyone interested in keeping an eye on my live notes & project tracking i have set up a trello for it here

Thank you!

@Augustus Really appreciate that thank you! i hope you enjoy where it ends up

@warriordude - so this will be tuned of course but the base idea for the difference between the romans and the britons is the romans will be all about heavy infantry and tight formations and the britons will focus on hit and run tactics and skirmishing & beserk units for hard hitting line breaking. i hope that makes sense

@Charlemayne - Really appreciate the comments. its mainly just me working on the mod so progress is a little slow but i hope you enjoy where it ends up

People called the Romans, they go the house! One good thing about starting with the Roman invasion is that you can be reasonably confident about tribal names- admittedly, mainly from Ptolemy's Geography, created a hundred years later, but still, at least a snapshot of the situation in the Roman period. The problem with the names we have is that no one knows how long each of these tribal units was actually around, whether they were really distinct tribes or just factions within tribes, whether the Romans had lumped people together for convenience, made names up or misheard them, etc, etc. But before contact with Rome, we really have no solid evidence at all for what people called themselves (and bear in mind that the Ulster Cycle, the Mabinogion etc weren't written down until even later than Ptolemy and his Geography).
