    Default Wars of the Gods Ancient Wars- Uniting Germania! (Lugii)

    The first part in a new Let's Play series where I am the Lugii, I am switching things up rather than be Sparta. I am playing a culture I have never played before!


    In this episode Lugii is declared war on by pretty much all of the surrounding tribes save for Suebi. Gutones to the north, attacks the small settlement of Belz twice. Meanwhile, Lugii sets its eyes on the Aestii capital of Mons Regius in order to gain a valuable port. Be sure to watch as their are massive volleys from long bowmen to unfortunate victims in this epic episode!

    In this episode! King of Lugii, Sigibert defends Belz against waves of Aestii after sending his forces to take their capital Mons Regius. Sigibert is able to ambush an Aestii army that is heading to Belz at the forced march.


    Although Aestii's forces are of better quality, they are tired as well and Sigibert has the element of surprise. A fierce battle occurs in the forest where many lives are lost on both sides. Rather than move towards the new Aestii capital of Tur, Sigibert is forced to retreat back to Belz to replenish his forces for the season. The Aestii use this opportunity to assault Belz yet again knowing that Lugii's armies are not at full strength. Sending wave after wave of Aestian soldiers at Belz, Sigibert is able to defend Belz bravely. Aestii having exhausted all of their troops, Sigibert sees his opportunity to strike and assaults their capital at Tur.


    With his eastern front secure, Sigibert moves south with hs eyes set on Budini hoping for a quick and decisive victory. But are wars ever that easy? Galic is taken with almost know lives lost, however, Sigibert does not know that Budini's armies went south to take Petradova. Budini launches a counter offensive to take back Galic and the Lugiian forces their hold out to the last man as they are faced with two full armies of cavalry. Sigibert must move to defeat Budini as quick as he can the giant that is Rome begins to expand to Lugii's borders.

    Playing the Lugii looks like both fun and challenging! It looks like you have a wide selection of units, both regulars and mercenaries, with the War of the Gods mod. It looks like the Lugii have units capable of guerilla deployment, I wonder how you feel about using it (as I see it, it's brilliant when you can use it to ambush the enemy but risky). Like you, I was surprised by the information that you couldn't sustain your armies when you had a food surplus, I wonder if thiss it was a mechanic in the mod (maybe a population mechanic?) which I'm not familiar with.

    In this long Wars of the Gods Ancient Wars episode! Sigibert continues to unify Germania while simultaneously fighting off against two very powerful factions. In what will be a long and bloody war, Cimbri attacked the Lugii port of Mons Regius. With a war front now open in the north, Lugii must take care of Budini quickly so as not to get sandwiched between two and soon to be 3 factions as ROME declarers war Lugii just when Cimbri does.


    Quickly, Sigibert moves to take Galic and then separates his forces leaving one small army to guard Petradova and taking the larger force up north. Cimbri assault Ascaucalis before Lugii's armies can reach the settlement. Only the garrison can make stand and valiantly they fought! Already have taken 2 territories from the Lugii, the Cimbri seem like an unstoppable force. When they assault the capital of the Lugii kingdom, Budorgis, all Lugiians, come to the defense of their capital.


    Will the Lugii be able to hold off against the Cimbri invasion in time for Rome's eventual assault into the region? Or is all hope lost? Be sure to check out the two city battles at the end of the episode for massive carnage!

    Great update! I was surprised too that the Suebi didn't accept a defensive alliance, when it sounds like you're at war with the same or similar nations (at least, I think so). When you captured the Budini city at 6:00, it looked like you had more options than usual (I'm thinking of options such to as 'occupy', 'loot' or 'raze' a captured city), that's an interesting feature of the mod.

    In this episode, Lugii grows by splitting the the Cimbri kingdom in half. Just when victory seems sure and all of Lugii's forces can focus on Cimbri, a Roman legion is spotted moving towards Belz from the forests to the south. For the first time, Lugii meets Rome on the field on battle, which is leading to a decade long war with Rome. Who will win? Lugii is testing the strength of the Romans.


    In an effort to distract and delay any remaining legions heading towards southern Lugii territory, Ricbodo takes an army from Galic towards the outer Roman settlement of Istro. Just as the army is about to besiege the settlement. Another Roman legion intercepts Ricbodo. Cimbri uses this opportunity, while Lugii is distracted to take back settlements that it lost, however, Lugii's power grows every season and Cimbri's decreases. With Lugii now fighting on two fronts and Rome officially in the fight, can Lugii sustain the constant fighting. Rome continues to hold great influence in Europe and across the Mediterranean? Be sure to check out this great episode! If you like Roman fighting, this one is for you!

    In this shorter but no less amazing episode, Lugii takes back Lupfurdum from Cimbri. Where there are gains, there are also losses...Rome sacked and occupied Petredova and moved north to take Galic. Rome knows Lugii is weaker in the south as its armies are in the West conquering Cimbri. What follows is a vicious battle where Lugii must defend Galic at all costs or Rome has an open path to the Lugiian capital.


    Sigibert, King of Lugii, finally reaches his army to Alabu, capital of Cibri where the fate of Cimbri is decided. Does the faction survive to fight another day? Or does Sigibert's presence mark the end of their time. Be sure to watch this episode for a major battle against Rome and to see where the Lugiian strategy will go from here!

    In this episode, Rome relentlessly counter-attacks Lugiian invasion. Lugii must pull every resource and man it can to hold back the Roman hordes. After taking back Petradova, Lugii sends two armies on the offensive against Rome in an effort to distract and hold back any further legions from the south. Also so Lugiian forces can focus on what is left of Cimbri. Two Roman settlements that Lugii is currently besieging counter-attack, at Zarmizegetusa, and Uburzis. Lugii is thrust into vicious fighting.


    There looks to be hope for Lugii as armies are sent further south, as far as Akink, in order to inch closer to Italia and cut off Rome from it outer provinces. In the north, Flevum, the last Roman port in Northern Europe is besieged by Lugii. Hopes are high for the Lugiian people as the fighting moves away from their capital, however, with expansion comes new enemies...

    My "Let's Plays" are now called "TSJ Plays" In this episode, the Tree-Breakers guard the bridge in preparation to attack Koria. Sigibert rests in Tulifurdum. Akink and Flevum are besieged by Lugii. All is going well for Lugii at the moment, at the start of this episode. Naturally, something horrible is about to happen. Sigibert moves his not yet fully replenished army to Flevum with the idea that in the following season, Lugii will take the port city from Rome. However, the Romans, trying to break through the siege lines, counter-attack at Flevum and make the first move.


    After a close and vicious battle, Lugii suffers a terrible blow. With the fate of Rome's upper territories being decided, in the south Rome sallies out of Akink to meet two Lugiian armies. After a massive battle on the outskirts of the settlement, Akink falls into Lugii's hands. Lugii also makes a daring move and takes Koria, which the Romans left completely undefended! In the east, however, Rome sends up the Legio I to retake Akink. A massive battle is fought, but Romes First Legion lays defeated. Lugii sends a spy into Italia to assess the military in the region. Just when all looks successful for Lugii, Dumnonii invades Lugii near Flevum and camps right outside Tulifurdum. Again, Lugii must enemies on two fronts.

    In this TSJ Plays, Dumnonii attacks Flevum with a full army where a brutal port battle ensues. Koria acts as a staging ground for invasions into Italy. A new enemy is added to Lugii's list, that of Ebdani, who recently took Bagacum from Dumnanii. Ebdani attacks a much smaller force of Lugiian forces who, while having the high ground, put up a fierce fight to their new enemy. In the south, Lugii continues to Italia by assaulting Medhlan and Noreia. Both Roman garrisons sally out to meet the Lugiian forces which results in two massive and brutal battles. Rome is in sight of Lugii! Can they make it? Watch to find out!
