  • New start date of 633, just after the death of the Islamic prophet Muhammad.
  • Reformable Hellenic religion, complete with a playable religious head
  • Cushitic paganism, the religion of many pre-Islamic East Africans
  • New catholic heresy : Arianism
  • Syriac and Coptic cultures as part of the Byzantine culture group
  • Updated or new de jure titles, complete with new flags

  • Scripted events for the rise and fragmentation of early Islam
  • Meticulously researched historical characters
