Smile Artoriu - I'm new!

The locals of this island call me "Artoriu," though the full name I was born with was Aulus Artorius Maximus, and I am descended from a Byzantine (Eastern Roman) noble family from Constantinople, now overrun by the Ottoman Empire Turks.

I have come to this island to flee Ottoman oppression, many of the Byzantines (Rhomaioi, or Romans) are being treated poorly. I travelled east to Persia, and eventually the large Ming Empire (China), until I took a ship to Honshu, the main island of this country.

I wish to humbly notify the King or leader of this land, and will peacefully settle around the western coast.

P.S. That's my character's roleplay. Hello there everyone!

-Aulus "Artoriu" Artorius Maximus

Okay welcome friend. Just gonna do some picking at this now. The Ottoman Empire conquered Constantinople in 1453 this game takes place in 1600. You mentioned the Byzantines being oppressed after they were conquered, well I just have to say that I disagree. The Ottoman Empire covered too large an area to oppress its people thoroughly. And besides, the jurisdictional complexity of the Ottoman Empire was aimed at allowing the integration and assimilation of culturally and religiously diverse groups. They had three court systems, one for Muslims, one for non Muslims, and one that involved trade.

Welcome, but what Gheari is true. Romans of any kind in this time period in Japan something very unlikely to the point of near impossibility...

Well technically it is Byzantine/Roman nobility descent, so that could make sense in the 1600s, but according to RP, what brought the Artoriu character to Japan was that his family in particular was oppressed and disliked by the Ottoman nobility.

You never know though, I might just restart my roleplay altogether.

Thanks for the welcome everyone, could someone give a precise release date too? Me and some friends were wondering that.

Hahaha! Good joke!

I kid. In all seriousness - the game will be done when it's done. One of the great things about this team is that they are remaining independent and not being forced into too early a release date by a publisher just out to make a buck.

As such, the team will continue working on the game until they feel it is worthy to be released to the public - at which point it will be!

There is rumor of a beta in the future though, so be sure to stay tuned for an update post from the devs in the coming months. Not that you shouldn't stay tuned all the time anyway. I mean, what else do you have to do in your spare time? In fact - what else do you have to do in your not spare time?

I rest my case.
