Shadow of Rome is a story that was created from the End of Darkness, and follows the events of the Roman Empire, and the Byzantine Empire, as well as introducing more about the Empire of Nehekhara. The Shadow of Rome details four main characters in the form of Antonia Constantine, Titus Pullo, Lucius Vorenus, and Issacc Conmenus of which detail the Byzantine Empire, Roman Empire, and for Issac Conmenus the Kingdom of Cyprus, and finally Bruno Certo is a noblemen from Athens and leads the storyline from Greece where the region is growing in importance.

The End of Darkness would detail the sections of the Fall of France that weren't discussed such as the Fall of Africanas to the Orcs, and then the Roman's invovlement in the defence and eventually fall of Hispania. The Shadow of Rome once again continues the impression that while there are good Romans the leadership of the Roman Empire is utterly lost in failure and greed and is destroying the once mighty Empire from within.

Shadow of Rome has two spin-offs in the form of Pax Romanus of which is a historical breakdown of the Roman Empire through the history lessons of Gaius Octavius. The second Spin-off is called the Rise of Ravenna and details the rise of the Kingdom of Ravenna alongside the flood of independance of northern Italy through numerous characters.

The Shadow of Rome begins with Lucius Vorenus of whom is talking with his best friend Titus Pullo as they travel into Africanas, of which during this point is still controlled by Rome to a certain extent. The two fight against the Orcish invasion and lose in Africanas but live to fight again in Hispania where under their command the Roman army is able to hold out for many months before the Orcs are finally slowed after the disasterous loss at Castille. Antonia Constantine takes over for a time and discusses his love affairs and his rise to Emperor of Byzantine and during his early chapter he begins plans for a massive expansion of the Byzantine Empire as well as radical genocide against the innocent Turks.

Chapter 10

During this argument his sister Theodora Constantine would reveal to her brother that she was romantic with Toygar Ilhan of which led to him storming out of the Palace Grounds where he was emotionally overwhelmed by everything that seemed to be spiralling out of control for him and left trying to go and visit his mother, but instead was stopped by Natashia of whom consoled him turning his blame away from himself and instead towards the Turks. Still on edge she would seduce him and during their love making she convinsed him to take revenge again on the Turks something that the obsessed Tony was unwilling to resist. With Natashia words and then accompanied seduction all he could think of he left the palace accompanied by several Palace Guards, and several of his close friends where he went to the Turkish Market where he would find Toygar Ilhan working one of his fathers stores. Confronting Toygar on this there was little conversation as once Toygar admitted to the relationship it would be Antonio of whom would kill Toygar decapitating him in front of his mother and then leaving him dead in the street, and this caused fighting at the market which led to the deaths of nearly a dozen people in the market as they were cut down by the Palace Guard trying to protect the heir. Fighting there way out killed well over a dozen more but they got out of the Turkish market where fighting then broke out between the Turkish people following Antonio and Visigothic citizens who begin fighting in the streets. The fighting would burn down much of the western section of the Turkish Market and killed hundreds by its end, with the army of Constantinople forced to move in and separate the two rioting factions. Antonio avoids the calls of his father to see him at the Palace as the hooks of Natashia have gone so far that the two are now planning a wedding and with the Byzantine Orthodox Church supportive of the Sons of Constantine the Patriarch of the Orthodox Church in the form of Photius Corelius I. would invite him to pray with him at the Saint Sophia and accepting this he went there with Natashia and the top tier of the Sons of Constantine providing them a safe place while the rioting died down in the streets. Photius would bless the marriage of Natashia and Antonio despite the Emperor himself being the one who should bless the marriage, and thus with a blessing Natashia and Antonio were married in the Saint Sophia. Antonio following a blissful night with Natashia falls asleep knowing that things are going very well for him, but despite this a tears runs down his cheek as he thinks on all the violence, and also the distance between himself and his family.
