Set some 1000 years before the Mediaeval period, this Age is dominated by the Edwinan empire known as Senatus Populusque Edwinus (SPQE). The time period is like that of Earth's Roman Republic, when the Republic encompassed much of the known world, and conquered against the Barbarians of the surrounding countries. All natives are furry (Skin Avian are present here too). No native humans.

A scene from 'Rome', depicitng the battle of Philippi. It shows Imperial Rome, as opposed to the Republic, but still a very good example of combat. Of course, all the officers have decidedly British accents, and talk about odd things like cakes before battle.

A very good example of forming Testudo at 5:00. Warning, contains blood.



The battle scene from 'Gladiator'. The use of siege engines in this battle, when it is not a siege is quite questionable, but it at least gives an example of what ballisate and catapults look like in this Age. Another good example of the Testudo formation at 7:04. Also, a rare example of a Roman officer that is not played by a British actor.

This is of no battle in particular in history, there never was a decisive victory to conquer all of Germania. One last historical inaccuracy, soldiers would be tought to fight as a unit, not alone as seems to happen in this battle. Still, a good resource for those interested in the look of the Age in combat.



A scene depicting the Battle of Alesia, from a film I can only guess was told from the point of view of the Gauls under Vercingetorix. Forgive the cliche speech at the start, this demonstrates Roman siege warfare and uniforms. At last, it shows a battle fought by the Republic. A great resource of a great Roman victory. Note the hurling of the pila at 4:30.



A decent enough video compilation showing battles, maps and dates of the Roman Republic. Music only.
