Who are we?
The Council of Modders was formed up of two small modding teams and a few newcomers: Aristeia (about the bronze age), Millennium A.D. (about medieval times) and Rise of the East (East civilizations, Current Terra Magna) and Ponies Ascendant (Pony factions) CoM aims to create an umbrella for all wannabee modders and help everyone needed and of course create their own projects.
