Anyone tried it yet? It's a one-time fee (of around $20) and then you can play for life. It's almost like a historical/realistic veresion of Gods & Heroes.
Almost all the property is player-owned which can be bought and sold by other players. You can also hire NPC guards to protect it.http://www.roma-victor.com
Only thing stopping me from trying it is it's steep system requirements. (2Ghz, 1gb ram, and at least 128mb video card)
