Reman Culture (1.1)
The Remans made their way through the portal in the East of the continent around 1200 years ago from Earth in the year 9 AD. They quickly expanded to the east coast of the continent and built many towns and cities. They establish trade with the Dwarves in the West and the Humans in the South. The Remans have had many battles and skirmishes with the Jotun in the North, but have managed to fight them off many times, at great cost. They often refer to themselves as New Rome or Sons of Remus, and have become major political players on the continent. The Remans have kept their same form of government and are governed by their senate. In the last few decades they have survived a civil war and a faction of the Remans have branched off but have recently been reabsorbed under the leadership of a new and powerful general. This general is a follower of the Church of Asmodeus and many more traditional Remans feel that he is trying to destroy their traditional belief system.
Restricted Classes: May not play Barbarian, Samurai, Druid, YuXia, Hoplite or Raider (although the Remans do hire Raiders from other cultures and Greek Hoplites as mercenaries).

Reman Weapon Training: All Reman players may use the gladius, regardless of class.
