Oh, go on and download it. Courage is not required . @timerover51: thanks for your comments. Whilst it's a shame you weren't around for the 2-3 years Anno Domini was in development, you need to know that all this was discussed. The mod is foremost meant to be fun and it's been acknowledged that it isn't entirely historically accurate. Originally, there were going to be different BIQs, so that more civs could be represented. Within the BIQs were going to be different leaders for the civs, so whilst overall Rome might not have been stable, perhaps under Trajan "industrious" and "stable" was acceptable. Anyhow, if the mod's not for you, that's fine.
