Hi all!

This mod is a personal project for fleshing out my Roman forts. But hopefully you will find things to like & use in here too. It is a set of 12 various Roman-era accessories:

-- Large pottery amphora (storage/transport jug)
-- Painted amphora (texturing thanks to Michael Cole & his fiance!)
-- Samian (glossy redware) plate, cup, decorated bowl, decorated mug
-- Goulash & Soup-with-Bread in samian bowls for extra boost
-- Black burnished jug & bowl
-- Gameboard plus red & black gaming pieces
-- Mortarium (mixing bowl)
-- "Cucullati" (hooded spirits) carving
-- Skillet
-- Oil lamp

All of these items (except the painted amphora, which is just TOO good not to include in the mod) are well known on Hadrian's Wall. The amphorae would have stored oils & sauces. (They were often recycled afterward to be used as urinals in barracks, buried in the ground!) Samian ware was imported from Gaul (France) & was the nicer regular pottery used for eating. Black-burnished ware was made down in southwest Britain; the army on Hadrian's Wall had a 200-year-long contract for it. The gameboard is for a game known as "Latrunculi." Its rules aren't known, but it was probably a cross between checkers & chess. Every Roman household had a mortarium, it's a true classic. The "Cucullati" are known all over the northwest Roman Empire, and keeping carved "household gods" was a Roman tradtiion. And every soldier needed his own skillet for cooking. Little pottery oil lamps were extremely cheap & common. Candles were known, but a wick in oil seems to have been the usual Roman way of lighting one's way at night.

I hope that the designs add good value to your builds. As always now, all of these have LODs in place so the resolution will go down as you go farther away. This saves -bigtime- on computer processing & will keep the game optimized. They also are all buildable in Survival mode.

Enjoy! And thanks as always for your support.

Hey Speedy Builder, thanks! Yeah that was a fun one. It's actually usable too as a chessboard. Tricky to move the little pieces dynamically but it can be done. :)
