  1. Re: Should these diplomacy offers/demands be added in Rome 2 Total War?

    I agree with Welsh Dragon and Morticia Iunia Bruti, it would be exploitable.

    If you keep sending characters on diplomatic missions, eventually a faction will give you a region (you don't get to...

    Re: More on the Politics Management issue

    That's good advice! I use political mariages too (a tip I picked up from Welsh Dragon). Using the 'seek spouse' intrigue for members of rival parties, giving those new members the free first...
  3. Re: What new campaings, DLC's and packs would you suggest for Rome 2 Total War?

    Yes, starting as a client state is an interesting challenge, and more campaigns starting in that situation would be fun. I enjoyed playing as Athens with the choice of whether to fight or remain...
  4. Re: “Toutatis Favours The Brave” (A Nervii CiG AAR) [Updated 9th August 2020]

    I really like the way that you introduce the theme in just a few words in the opening line, and the different ways in which you illustrate the reputation of the cunning Remi. That's a memorable line...

    Re: Death of George Floyd and Subsequent Riots.

    I wonder if, as you suggested, Chauvin's hold didn't choke or asphyxiate Floyd - and, at the same time, Floyd mistakenly believed that he was being choked? Judy Melinek (the forensic pathologist I...

    Re: Death of George Floyd and Subsequent Riots.

    I agree there's a clear case that Floyd shouldn't have been restrained in this way. As you said before, whether this was murder is up to the court.

    When I saw that the MPD allowed (at the time)...

  9. Re: The best moment/situation when to convert an enemy faction into a satrapy/client state

    Reading this makes me want to try your strategies, for example to play as Colchis and make Trapezos a client state. :)

    You mentioned making Ardaei a client state as Epirus. I did the same thing as...
