  1. Re: What do you do when boxed in by friendly countries?

    Exactly, diplomatic missions to expand are helping. Initially, several factions gave me settlements (none included a Mediterranean port, which I was hoping for) - after that, I haven't got lucky and...

  4. What do you do when boxed in by friendly countries?

    I enjoy playing minor nations, like Greek colonies and African kingdoms. When you're a small country with bigger nations nearby, it makes sense (at least to me) to make friends and allies. In my...
  5. Re: Your reasons for choosing a specific Roman house for a Grand Campaign as Rome

    Uusally, I go north against the nearest Gauls until I hold the territory on the Italian side of the mountain passes (and maybe Illyria) and before going for Carthage (or possible somewhere else,...

    It's the House of Cornelia for me too, as I enjoy trying different auxiliary units and (as you said) their auxiliaries have cheaper upkeep.
  7. Re: Written in Sand (Nabataean AAR for EBII)[updated: Apr 25]

  8. Re: Trinacria Caput Mundi (Kingdom of Two Sicilies AAR)

    After decisive victories on land and sea, it sounds like the Battle of Genova was a bruising encounter for the Sicilian army.

    It looks like the peace treaty with Genoa will provide a huge benefit...

    Re: Revenge of the Tyrants. Darkness.

    Wow, a lot has been happening in this tale! I'm enjoying the mystery around the amulet, and evocative phrasing such as "Neither the Elves nor the Dragons will save them" - nicely done!

    The Dark Hunters sound pretty lethal. I'm intrigued by the descriptions of the occult groups - the Coalition call them terrorists, perhaps others see them differently.

    Re: Identify that Tank/Ship/Plane/Artillery etc

    That's a remarkable history for a ship, even in a period when it seems to have been fairly common for ships to be captured and used by a different navy.

    Is one of these ships the Cumberland?
