This was meant to be a prelude to 0ad. In the final mod, the Vikings will be replaced by the Republican Romans, with a new Roman building set and Latin language set.

WOW! Awesome mod dude, a big THUMBS UP. But i too was not expecting it to replace a berserk, though i still think u chose the right unit to replace cuz i don't really like berserks (in other words they SUCK!).

Nice! Will come in handy.
NB: In republic rome, legions did not exist. The closest thing to 'em was Triiari.

^ forget that bit. Republican Rome did fight in a formation the equivalent of legions, but they weren't called that until imperial rome. It's just that a lot of historians call that formation a legion, which is wrong.

Hey frog, your kinda wrong there. The armies during Republican Rome evolved quite a few times. In the early times, there were hoplites whom were called triarri. Then after that, came swordsmen(2 groups) called hastati and principes. The triarri still existed, used in times of emergency in battle. Then when republica rome owned much of the medditerranean, proffesional soldiers called Legionairs took over, supported by light-infantry(range troops) and cavalry. The standard army at this time was called a Legion.
This was all before Imperial Rome!
