I'm currently researching the Cyrenean army for mod designed for Rome II (you can see the details here: (http://www.twcenter.net/forums/forumdisplay.php?2036-Sub-Mods-for-Divide-et-Impera). When I was gathering information, I've stumbled upon this site:
It contains a very nice summary of Cyrene's history. I've been wondering who should I contact if I wanted to use it as a description in the mod? I could write my own summary, but I figured that if someone had done such a great job, why not ask?
To clarify: This mod is a strictly non-profit project.
I don't really know who owns the text of Fanaticus The site manager or the original writer. Why not just cite the original source and use the text and if anybody sues you, you can just drop it. I have never known a nicer person than the original manager, Chris, so I can't imagine him objecting.
