Total War: ROME II – Black Sea Colonies Culture Pack

The Black Sea Colonies Culture Pack introduces three new playable factions into the ROME II Grand Campaign: Cimmeria, Pergamon and Colchis.

Originally citizens of the Greek States, these pioneering peoples have settled far from home, intermingling their customs with those of far-flung societies to create unique cultures of their own. The Black Sea Colonies bring a rich new gameplay flavour to ROME II through their unique traits, battlefield units and buildings, and hybrid unit-rosters.

Black Sea Colonies Cultural traits:
Greek Knowledge: +5% to research rate
Far from Home: +2 cultural conversion

Cimmeria

Background:
The Cimmerian Bosporus has been fought over for its resources and strategic importance for millennia. The adventurous Greeks of Miletus, in Asia Minor, formed several colonies around the Black Sea coast during the 6th and 7th centuries BC in order to exploit its resources for trade with the wider Greek world. By the beginning of the 5th century BC their government had gravitated from classical Greek democracy to control by a single family. The current ruler, Satyrus, conquered nearby Greek cities, heralding the birth of the Cimmerian Kingdom, and a dynasty of rulers that endures to this day. Despite this strength, Cimmeria remains under threat from the surrounding nomadic tribes, and from the avaricious gaze of nearby Pontus, whose military strength may yet prove its undoing.

Faction Traits:
Tyrants: +5% corruption
Bosporian Fertile Lands: +25% wealth from agricultural buildings
Multiculturalism: -25% unhappiness from all foreign cultures in own territories

New units:
Scythian Hoplites: Armed in the Greek style with spear and shield, these medium infantry are solid defenders.

Cimmerian Heavy Archers: A truly multirole unit, these heavily-armoured archers trade their bows for spears when the enemy draws close.

Cimmerian Noble Infantry: Noble Infantry are drilled to a peerless standard in the classic hoplite style.

Picked Peltasts: Accurate and determined, these javelin-armed skirmishers can pack a devastating punch.

Unit roster:
Greek/Scythian hybrid

Unique Buildings:
Prytaneion
Rose Marl Building
Sanctuary of Demeter

Pergamon

Background:
Although a minor player up to that point, Pergamon came to prominence during the struggle of Alexander the Great’s Successors for control of his fragmented empire. An ambitious lieutenant named Philetaerus acquired control over the fortress city and led Pergamon into a new golden age of culture and learning, building an impressive acropolis and a temple to Pergamon’s patron goddess, Athena. Not yet a kingdom in the truest sense, the time is right for expansion beyond its current borders. There are also new threats to be faced from Galatia, the duplicitous Pontus and Cappadocia. Pergamon must be strong if it is to meet these challenges and fulfil its destiny as a mighty Successor state.

Faction Traits:
Great Builders: -25% to all building costs
Military Underdogs: +10% non-mercenary recruitment cost
Town Growth: +4 growth in all provinces

New units:
Agema Spears: The cream of Pergamon’s infantry, these elite defenders will hold the line against the odds.

Pergamon Noble Cavalry: Hardy and proud, the lance-wielding Noble Cavalry of Pergamon can execute a devastating charge.

Picked Peltasts: These elite, javelin-armed skirmishers are trained to a superior standard.

Unit roster:
Greek/Hellenic/Galatian hybrid

Unique buildings:
Great Altar of Pergamon
Library of Pergamon
Spring of Asclepius
Baths of Asclepius
Sanctuary of Asclepius

Unique technology:
Pergaminus

Colchis

Background:
Far to the east of the Black Sea, at the very edge of the Greek world, lies Colchis. A place of legend, it is said to have been the final destination on Jason’s quest for the Golden Fleece. Around the 6th century BC, Greek traders from Militus arrived to construct a thriving mercantile economy from this former Persian satrapy. Its current ruler controls a powerful Greek trading state with strong Scythian influences and a nobility who extol the finest qualities of both cultures. His warriors fight in the Greek fashion, yet the ferocity of their nomadic past is very much alive. As such, Colchis has set out to conquer much of the land around it - to absorb further Scythian tribes, and as many former-Persian lands as possible, into his burgeoning empire.

Faction traits:
Trade Crossroads: +15% trade income
Golden Legacy: Major diplomatic penalty with Greek factions
Assimilation: +4 happiness from presence of other cultures

New units:
Colchian Nobles: Heavily armoured and drilled to blunt the mightiest charge, Colchian Nobles are a force to be reckoned with.

Unit roster:
Greek/Eastern hybrid

Unique Buildings:
Temple of the Golden Fleece
