Introduction and history of this mod[edit]

A spinoff of Rise of Kings: Chronicles, Bronze Dawn is a mod for the award-winning historical real-time strategy computer game Rise of Nations: Thrones and Patriots.

Unlike Rise of Kings which covers most of Eurasia from 888 to 1530CE, Bronze Dawn is projected to be more limited in its geohistorical focus: the Warring States Period and the Han-Chu Civil War that brought down the Qin dynasty in China. Players will be introduced NOT to a single Chinese nation, but one which is still in the very early stages of formation.

There are currently 24 factions in the game; each one based on a historical mediaeval civilisation. Players of the CtW however may also meet sub-factions and barbarians, which may be based on one or more civilisations, and even field their own special units and styles of play.
