    Roman Campaign; Adventures of Gaius Fabius.

    It all started in Sicily. After quick and successful campaign Siracusae was captured, and Gaius Fabius, leaving only small garrison to pacify the locals, marched west. His army was relatively small, but strengthened with some greek loyalists happy for romans removing their tyrannic ruler Hiero. A victorious army then besieged Agrigentum, but the garrison of the town was too small... Suspiciously small. Gaius Fabius ordered his men to double night patrols, but his scouts failed to notice carthaginian forces marching to smash small roman force. At the morning, Gaius found that his army was cornered with carthaginian professional soldiers, libyan veterans, balearic slingers, numidian cavalry and towered elephants... He just have a little time to make final preparations, when carthaginians attacked, confident in victory. A hot fight ensued, and ...

    This time his men were absolutely confident. Angry at carthaginians for losing many good friends in previous fight, romans and their loyal greek friends rushed into battle, wreaking havok and destruction. Carthaginian mercenaries, having no reason to fight to the last man, having no good leader this time, quickly routed. Another great victory and finally Agrigentum captured!

    Default Re: AAR - the Antigonid Dynasty campaign.


    The Antigonid Dynasty lasted 58 yrs, from 270BC to 212BC. During that time, we had three faction leaders. The economy provided steady income of about 6500 denarii per turn, which is the equivalent of 3 military units. This only allowed for slow expansion since a fair portion went to building infracstructure. We had no trouble with unrest for the most part. We managed to gain control of the entire Greek mainland plus in 223BC we captured Tarentum and we held it for 11 years. We were able to contain the Roman invasion for the most part, but our downfall was precipitated by our acceptance of an alliance with the Selecid Empire in 228BC. The resulted in war with the Ptolemaic Empire which invaded southern Greece through Athens. After 16 yrs, they managed to break us. We won the majority of our tactical battles and won 66% of the 95 battles. In the end, Ptolemaic Empire is ranked over 400,000, Pontus at 210,000, the Germanic Tribes at 200,000, Rome at 180,000, Baktria at 175,000. At our height, we ranked at 100,000 and ended at 50,000.
