Added the Roman opportunistic diplomatic maneuvering that changes forever the history of China and at the same time safeguarding their northern flank. Check it out, between 248 and 252 AD.  :wink:

The suppression of Islam now allows you to occupy the entire Indian Ocean Carrying Trade, especially after you adopt the Long Ship.  Furthermore it will allow you to move south to circum-navigate Africa, and to colonize centuries earlier than the Bantu migrations into southern Africa.  Once you've established Provinces at Cape Town and along the east african litoral, you own the eastern coast.  Now you can begin to move deeper into Africa, occupying the Song-hi, Mali and other empires of the Niger River Valley.  These empires rivaled Rome in size and in military strength--just never developed written records, and termites prevented the preservation of celluloid product for more than a few decades.  Once you've linked up Western Africa, East Africa, and the Med, you have closed the loop.  

Problem is you need to develop Railroads, steam power, and other technologies that will allow you to link up all of the Empire.

Yeah the tech angle is the sticking point. The Romans were adapters of technology par exellance, but were not great scientists themselves. So I am probably going to have to make tech breakthroughs due to adaptation of current tech, accidental, or a discovery by a group like the cult of Hermes Trimesgustes, known to the Egyptians as the cult of Thoth.

Most likely I will use a combination of all three till the Scientific Principle is discovered.  :D

Added a huge section about a Roman reform of their army in 270 A.D.

Added the section of the Timeline where the Romans tangle with the Norse, and the Norse discovery of North America.

Comments and critiques are heartily welcomed.  :D

I have decided to completely redo the timeline, make it a bit more realistic. Any comments on the new beginning would be greatly appreciated.  :D
