    Default Guide to the Guides (Total War: Rome II)

    This is the TW:R2 edition of the "Guide to the Guides." There will most likely be some overlap with Total War Center and other sources of guides, but I hope to keep things as organized as possible.

    General Guides:

    How to Play Total War - A Beginners Guide

    Official Rome 2 FAQ Thread

    Guides for New Players [Videos]

    Online Encyclopaedia Access
    ________________________________________

    General Campaign Guides:

    Total War: Rome II - Beginner's Guide by Dark Side
    (^Work in Progress, though past efforts have been excellent)

    Skye's Video Library [Videos]

    SusaVile's Rome 2 Building Planner, all factions
    (^A handy little tool)

    Slaists Guide to RTW 2 Politics

    Roman General Guide

    Taking over [settlements]: A short guide

    Vampiresbane's Guide to Food, Growth, and Happiness for Rome 2
    ________________________________________

    Faction-Specific Campaign Guides:

    Roman Auxiliaries Guide

    FOR SPARTA! Legendary Campaign Guide

    Suebi Guides and Strategies
    ________________________________________

    Battle Guides:

    Guide to playing as the Suebi online [Video]________________________________________

    Misc. Guides:

    Latin Army Names Guide
    (^A real community effort)

    ________________________________________

    Look to the links directly below if you can't find a relevant guide in this thread:


    Total War Wiki

    TWC Strategies and Tactics Forum
    ________________________________________


    Please post here with links to any useful guides you come across or create. Historically, the GttG has been a great resource for the community, and I hope to repeat that success with TW:R2.

    A note: I myself am sadly separated from a gaming computer for most of this year (*cries a small tear of sadness*), and so will rely entirely upon the community for even the most basic information on what does and does not work in this new game. Your pity, in the form of guides and helpful advice for all, would be appreciated.

    Maybe. *sniff*. Maybe. I don't exactly see a surfeit of community guides over there.

    I'll cede the post if Mackles wants to keep it up for community guides, since he's been more active than me, but I'll stick around for now.

    Honestly, I'm more "worried" about the "Strategies" section of the wiki, what with its "Community guides coming soon!" and "FAQ's & Guides coming soon!" bullets.

    ----

    On that note, I added a "General Guides" section and put "How to Play Total War - A Beginners Guide" from Mackles' thread in it.

    I also added an "External Links" section and a link to the aforementioned wiki in it, titled "Total War Wiki".

    Yes, but I'm keeping an eye towards guides to better/easier/more informed play that will start coming out after the release, not "news", per se.

    The latest sticky has a few very basic guides that could be used.

    Thank you, Mackles (I think... What have I done! )

    @Rewinged

    Thanks. Got it just now. It's literally the only guide in the OP at the moment.
