* CutHimselfShaving: The Idiote ancillary took his position because: "Fortunately, this man was able to take the place of the previous returning officer when he accidentally, brutally cut his own head off whilst combing his hair."



** The Kitharodes ancillary's text says "I sing in praise of Total War!", because Creative Assembly would like an IAmGreatSong, apparently.



** A Playwright ancillary may have been [[TheZerothLawOfExamples the only person to do it before Shakespeare.]] "Hmm. Comedy. Tragedy. Historical tragedy. I know! Biographical historical comedy!"

Added DiffLines:

** The Wine Amphora ancillary has flavor text that says "Last one to down theirs is a member of the Theban Sacred Band!"...which is to say, [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sacred_Band_of_Thebes the last one]] [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar is gay]].

* BrickJoke: A random household that can be obtained named "Eastern Turncoat" insists his treason was not just because he got paid to in his flavor text. 'Gold? Is that why you think I...? No, no. Not that.' A "Parthian Turncoat", however, says quite simply that: 'Actually, it is entirely about money…'


Added DiffLines:

*** Apparently, a household named "Trophy Hunter" is really [[Film/{{Predator}} Dutch Schaeffer]] since its flavor text is "One ugly [[CurseCutShort mother--]]"

Added DiffLines:

*** And a Latin Tutor household ancillary clearly watched the "Romanes eunt domus" scene in that film as well. The people called Romanes, they do not go the house.

The first expansion pack, ''Caesar in Gaul'', was released on the 17th of December, 2013, and follows, naturally, Creator/GaiusJuliusCaesar himself during his conquest of Gaul, opposed by the various Gallic tribes (including the Arverni, led by Vercingetorix himself), the Germanic Suebi and the Belgic Nervii.

** The historical record isn't completely conclusive, but it surely indicates strongly that the Carthaginians regularly practiced [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ancient_Carthage#Religion child sacrifice]]. The Romans gleefully used the practice against the Punici in their propaganda during the various Punic Wars.

** Upon promoting a family general to the rank of Censor (the highest political rank possible), the description text reads "[[Film/MontyPythonsLifeOfBrian He wanks as high as any in Wome, you know.]]"

Added DiffLines:

* CannonFodder: ''Very'' basic melee Mob/Pleb infantry can be built from slums that arise from a population surplus square that isn't developed or provided as an innate garrison for many towns...they're pretty much guaranteed to inevitably die off and rout no matter where they attack any real melee units without a dramatic numeric advantage - they're essentially a basic ranged unit in effectiveness but without the actual range.


Added DiffLines:

* CombatDiplomacyStealth: The gist of the feel to Zeal, Authority and Cunning attributes. The Champion, Dignitary and Spy agents also match the trifecta.


Added DiffLines:

* CriticalExistenceFailure: Your agents will only serve you ''better'' as they age and work over the decades, up until they are wounded, killed or keel over from old age.


Added DiffLines:

* YouALLLookFamiliar: You're definitely going to be able to count the few character models that are randomly available for representing a faction's agents and generals considering how many of them you'll go through over the centuries.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Pun}}: Your characters can have a "Roman Exile" in their household. It has the flavor text "Wherever I wander, there's no place like Rome...", obviously referring to the popular phrase "There's no place like home".

Added DiffLines:

* AttackReflector: The Expert Charge Defense trait available to certain elite units causes damage to the charging unit proportional to how strong their charge is. However, the charged unit will still take damage from the charge and has to be stationary for it to work.

* StealthPun: Many armies have names such as "The Champions of X" or "The Honor of Y" for their deities. One of Egypt's is "The Pride of Sekhmet". Sekhmet is a lioness...
