  1. Re: The importance of both politics and diplomacy in a campaign

    I do similar things, these strategies work work in my experience. I like having an ally, so there's a border I don't need to defend, and I like the way that for military allies, their regions count...
  2. Re: Just got into rome 2 - which campaign is best for playing as a Greek faction?

    Massilia and Macedon are good choices! I'd be interested to hear how you get on, either here or in an After Action Report in the Writers' Study, if you like.

  9. Re: Just got into rome 2 - which campaign is best for playing as a Greek faction?

    The Greek states pack makes Athens, Epirus and Sparta playable in the Grand Campaign (the Wrath of Sparta doesn't unlock factions for the Grand Campaign, it makes available a separate campaign). The...

    Re: [Third Age MOS AAR] An Uruks Tale

    The return of Malthur is an exciting event! The bleak, desperate mood of Rohan after what happened in Gondor comes across powerfully. I'm interested to see what role the King's new adviser will play...
  11. Re: To earn a Kingdom: A Northern Dúnedain Narrative - Divide and Conquer V2.1 [UPDATE - 19/03/2020]

    Good chapter, you convey well the long history and slowly fading splendour of the elves. Eldarion's decision sounds like a dangerous one, I wonder if the hobbits will disagree.
  12. Re: Written in Sand (Nabataean AAR for EBII)[updated: Mar 15]

    I wonder if it's significant that Mun'at's army seems to have been able to march as far as this through Saba' lands without being intercepted (politely or otherwise) by one of the Queen's armies -...
  13. Re: The Empire Strikes Back - Seleucids AAR [R: TW Vanilla]

    Great AAR, like Turk I enjoyed the way that you use the differences from history to your advantage. It looks as if Antiochus and Alexander are bold, decisive leaders.
  14. Re: A OtherRealm Productions - Phoenicia AAR (Bronze Age)

    Good update! It looks like the Phoenicians are making good progress in both north and south, the battle at Ugarit in particular seems significant. Good update!
  15. Re: Just got into rome 2 - which campaign is best for playing as a Greek faction?

    As Spyrith said, Massilia and Sparta are fun options.

    If you enjoy strategy, I recommend Athens and Syracuse in the Grand Campaign

    Athens is interesting, for me, because you start as a client...

  32. Re: What do you prefer to do in the early stages of a campaign when playing as Baktria?

  35. Re: What do you prefer to do in the early stages of a campaign when playing as Baktria?

    I like going west initially as Bactria, ignoring the northern tribes. Yes, I tend to get bonus objectives accidentally rather than intentionally.

    Like Turk, I enjoyed the way that you convey the vulnerability of Conrad and his men and the burden of command. The arrival of Balthasar Gelt is a good moment, too!
  38. Re: “Toutatis Favours The Brave” (A Nervii CiG AAR) [Updated 23rd February 2020]
