255 BC

The relations among the three Roman houses are strengthened.

Carthaginian Republic loses a large amount of war, fishing and trade ships, during a massive hurricane and storm.

The significant and obscure amount of snowfall has led the Scythian and Nordic Tribes to lose many farms and people.

Iberian Tribes discover more silver veins in northeastern Iberia.


  • Thracians: The Thracians, led by King Byzas, who is beloved by his people, send NAP's to the Seleucid Empire and the Pontic Empire.  The Capital city of Byzantium is holding roughly 7,500 citizens with the entire nation holding roughly 100,000 Thracians, with Tylis holding the highest population of citizens at 17,500.  The army is roughly around 3500 troops strong, with the navy around 2500 with over 400 battle ready ships consisting of ten fleets of 40 ships.  The year is spent training and developing the Military and the Navy as more ships are being built for the Thracian Navy.  A few minor conflicts begin to develop around the borders between the Thracian Empries and the Scythians (their south western plot), increasing tension between the two nations, however no acts of violence have been ordered from either government.
  • Pontic Empire Dip: We accept an NAP of ten years. No more than that.
  • Hey Cheese, it clearly states you have 7500 in your capital. Your city: Tylis has 17,500. I think you mixed em up. SwankyJ (talk) 00:54, May 6, 2014 (UTC)
  • Gothca Cheeseball007 (talk) 01:11, May 6, 2014 (UTC)
  • House of Scipio: The leader of the House, Gaius Scipio, increases the military as many hastati are being produced. Gaius has a son, Cornelius Scipio. The increased relations and bond between the other Romans leads to fortified trade routes being guarded by forts. The faction takes advantage of Carthage's weak navy, blockading their ports at Lilybaeum. An NAP is requested with the Greek city-states.
  • Celtic Tribes: The chieftains of Éire receive blessings from druids in an upcoming exploration of the east (OTL Wales) where their brethren reside. (As far as I know, Wales was Celtic now, so it'd be plausible for some Celts to know that). The tribes, primarily those near bodies of water, develop their navy and thus the economy through increased naval trade and fishing.
  • Egypt: The royal dynasty of the Ptolemies continues to solidify its grip over Egypt and its people. THe training of the troops in the phalanx formation continues in order to make sure that the formation is the standard method of war in the armed forces. Native troops are also raised and trained in the same formation, but discrimination still happens between the Greeks and the Egyptians. Trade continues to be expanded thanks to the canal. A NAP is requested with the Seleucid Empire.
  • Persia: we work on our military, mainly archers. Our king has been scavenging for more gold mines, as we are looking for a trading partners. We request a trade deal with Egypt.

254 BC

The Nordic Tribes suffer more population losses due to the continued farming shortage

Carthage, the city, begins to undergo rebellions due to the lack of action responded to the House of Scipio.

The Thracian Empire begins to encounter severe incursions with the Scythian peoples, as small skirmishes have begun to ignite

The Thracians lose 5% of their navy due to large storms, which was from the effects of the same that hit Lilybaeum

Mining of Iron in Getae has given the Thracians a large economic boost, and enabling them to reinforce their military

House of Scipio's trade routes are successful, linking with the other Roman Houses, giving them a boost as well

Rome sees a enormous surge in population, as much migration from the foot hills has been centered to the capital

Iberia's economy shoots through the roof, on the discovery of huge deposits of silver mines and veins are found

  • Gallic Tribes: Chief Lannidult expands the military and economy. As the population begins to rise with much success in hunting and farming has occurred.
  • House of Julius: Tiberius Julius is not one for war, as he is a genius when it comes to making the people happy as well as making smart choices for the House to gain economic advantages due to trade and naval tendencies.
  • Macedonian Empire: King Antiochus has seen signs of sickness when he walks through the capital, Thessalonica. He fears if a plague may begin. Meanwhile, Macedonian requests an alliance with the Thracians. And will give them control of Bylazora, if they will help them defend from the Greeks, Seleucids, and Dacians. Military is expanded.
  • Celtic Tribes: The Celt explorers arrive in Cymru/Wales and wish to begin trade with the tribes there (mod reponse). The navy is further expanded, as is the infrastructure.
  • Yes trading is allowed with a tribe that would be similar in culture, approved.
  • Nordic Tribes: With farming land in short supply many of the tribes fight over control of the little lands available. Amongst the tribes the Svae and the Ulra grow larger as they defeat and absorb other tribes, while the Laev begin increasing their presence at sea attempting to secure a living through pillaging and fishing raiding the Germanic tribes in northern europe and along the coast of OTL Frieland. Almost all of the tribes use bronze at this point while some tribes further to the north continue to use even more obsolete materials, with none of the tribes having been exposed to iron weapons or med sea cultures. 
  • Carthaginian Republic: We increase our military and navy. Luol Mago become king of the nation after his parents death. We expand our nation east taking Nepte the one next to us. Ships are being build for our navy. We focus mostly on farming and trade. Our main language is a mix of Greek and Italian. We ask for an alliance with Greek city-states, Egypt and Roman Empire. Our main religion is the same as the Greeks. A main castle for the king is being built. Walls and outposts are being built around the capital city. Temples are being build for praying. Ports are being built for more trade.       
  • you need an algo, unless it is a dark grey, which it is not. SwankyJ (talk) 20:46, May 7, 2014 (UTC) and you can only take one. As you cannot travel that far in one year.
    • House of Scipio Dip: We will agree to an alliance if we are given either the province in Iberia or Sicily.
    • Carthage Dip: We will not give you land, but we will give you medical and military aid when you need it. 
  • House of Brutus: Marcus Brutus is more warlike than Julius, however, he has no animosity towards over Romans. Nay, for he has a deep seated belief that Rome should rule over all of the World. As such, he begins to upgrade the Navy, as the key to ruling all is to dominate the Sea. After the Navy begins to be upgraded, Brutus leaves it be. It will continue to be improved over the next decade or so. As he prepares for another days work, his eyes alight on a rather Slovenly Roman Soldier. He smiles. He knows what to turn his attention to next year ... He accepts the Carthaginian Alliance, and sends an emissary to negotiate, and to secretly check out the Carthaginian Fleet, and how difficult Carthage would be to invade.
  • House of Scipio: Gaius Scipio proposes a deal with the Greek Cities. They will gain an alliance and trade rights, as well as Brutus' military help to take down the Macedonian Empire. If the Greeks give claims to Segestica to Brutus, and give the city of Syracuse to Scipio. We expand our navy and military. We use our boosted economy to produce more houses and buildings in Rome, to provide more encouragement to migrate to the capital. We declare war on the Carthaginian Republic. We request an alliance with Numidia.
    • Numidia: Accepts the offer for an alliance.
  • Egypt: The nation accepts the trade agreement of the Persians, and while considering the offer of the Carthaginians, decides that an alliance is too close of a relationship right now and that a closer trade alliance would be better first. The military continues to train in the phalanx formation. The population rises as profitable harvests and agricultural yields increase the food supply. The navy increases in size, and the nation considers the possibility of reclaiming lost land in southern Anatolia.
  • Greece: We expand our military. Soldiers train with headless spears to improve their reactions during a real battle. Construction of a short wall around the major cities begins. Inf and 'Mil Turn
  • Thracians:  We use our boosted economy to help build up the army.  King Byzas has begun the process of imposing tariffs on ships traveling through the straits between Byzantium and Pergamum, and Byzantium and Nicomedia to all non allied vessels.  This helps to boost the economy of the state further.  King Byzas sends diplomats to Thessalonica to humbly reject the offer of the Macedonians to ally.  The tension building in the north with the Scythians comes to a head as King Byzas waits the year out and plans to Invade Scythia next year, but takes action by blocking the main harbor of Scythia with three fleets of ships to prevent any trading in and out of that port.  Diplomats are sent to the Greek city-states and the Seleucid Empire to help them fight Macedonia for the Greek City and Armenia and Egypt for the Seleucid Empire in an attempt to become allies with the two powers and to open up trade with the two.

253 BC

The plague hits Macedonia like a ram to a gate. Over 3000 die in the first year. And the conditions only become worse. Thessalonica has lost 2000 people, as Larissa has lost 1000

Egypt sees major military reforms with the chariot being largely added to the mix in the military as it supports the Greek Phalanx suedo of troops (+3 to mil for seven years)

Greek city-states begins to suffer uprisings in Cyprus and Syracuse as the people feel a large distance from the capital of Sparta, as many wish to see Athens as the new capital. Although Syracuse wants Sparta and Cyprus wants Athens. Whichever is chosen, the other has made it very clear it will break away.

The Gallic Tribes begin to grow bloodthirsty, as they ache for the thrill of battle. Many warbandsmen encourage High Chief Lannidult to declare war on the House of Julii

The rebellions in the Carthaginian Republic have greatly increased. As the sudden adoption of Greek and ITALIAN? Become instituted. The world is curious as to what Italian is, as it as roots to Latin. The people raid and pillage the academies, barracks, and temples of the capital, Carthage. The temple of Baal is desecrated

Nordic Tribes see a positive output of food this year, as the population slowly begins to stablize the economy slightly begins to show signs of prosperity

  • Thracians: King Byzas has become fed up with the skirmishes along the Scythian border and declares war on Scythia. Using the fleets of ships already stationed outside of the Scythian port an additional two fleets are sent to aid in the effort as the army is sent to go to war over the land. (MOD RESPONSE WITH ALGO). The year is spent sending troops to combat and building the economy through the tax points in the straits around Byzantium. Still waiting to hear back from Seleucid and Greek city-states to hear back with ally deals.
    • Seleucid Dip: We deny your alliance request. We request an alliance with the Macedonian Empire.
    • Macedonian Dip: We accept your alliance, and request support to now bring down Thracians.
    • Greek City-states Dip: We request an alliance, in order to gain land from the Macedonians and Seleucids.
  • Carthaginian Republic: We increase our military and navy. Ships are being build for our navy. We focus mostly on farming and trade. A main castle for the king is being built. Walls and outposts are continuing to be built around the capital city. Temples are continuing to be build for praying. Ports are continuing to be built for more trade. We also declare war on the House of Scipio. Since they started it we want to fight them and give them their money's worth. We are happy the House of Brutus Accepts the alliance.
  • Celtic Tribes: After trade increases with the tribes of Cymru, we offer a mutual defense pact, creating an alliance between the Celtic tribes and the tribes of Cymru. The military and economy expands.
  • House of Scipio: We ask the House of Brutus to assist our Roman soldiers, to help us fight Carthage, in turn for support in fighting Macedonia, Greece, and Thrace. We ask that they betray the alliance with Carthaginian Republic. We also call on aid from Numidia, to help us fight Carthage, promising land in mostly all of Africa. We expand our military and navy, improving our economy with trade routes. We invade Lilybaeum.
    • Palma: We expand the infrastructure. The city sees large population growth, with much migration from Iberia, to those that wish to become Roman citizens. The economy also expands forcing Iberians to stop at Palma before the rest of the Mediterranean, and force them to pay silver.
    • Numidia Dip: We accept Scipio's offer and declare war on the Carthaginian Republic.
    • Greek City-states Dip: We accept Scipio's offer. We will give them Syracuse, and establish Athens as the new capital. 
  • Greek City-states: We expand our military and declare war on the Macedonian Empire. Making an example of our power by invading the coastal city in the south, Cyrene. The navy and economy is expanded as much blockade and taxing has come from the islands of Greek states. Sparta begins to simmer down, as Syracuse no longer is under their reign, and lies in the hands of the House of Scipio, in return for military and naval support.
  • Numidia: King Gala begins to organize the Numidian people. He starts by convincing all other Numidian chiefs, who de jure owed fealty to the King, to swear fealty in person at which time they were granted various tracts of lands dependent upon the size of the chief's contingent. Then, work on the capital city of Cirta begins, trying to make it as modern as Rome and Carthage. After Scipio is dragged into a war, Gala quickly aids his ally and declares war on Carthage. The military is then mobilized and the famous cavalry helps Numidia make massive gains. Expansion into Corduba begins. The military increases in proficiency as a result of the ongoing war, and the economy picks up as trade with Carthage is cut off.
  • Seleucid Empire: We declare on the Thracian Empire, and begin to build siege equipment. Massing armies of onagers in the west.
  • British Tribes: Fighting between the tribes continues, with five tribes emerging as the most powerful. 

252 BC

The plague in Macedonia continues. Four thousand are lost in Thessalonica alone. Down south, in Larissa, 2000 fall victim to the plague. With efforts of the King and the government to confine and quarantine the disease, it begins to slow down the death toll. Although the population continues to drop.

Nordic Tribes see prosperity in fishing and trade with other small northern tribes (+2 Eco for 2 turns).

The republic of Carthage begins to collapse from within, riots in Carthago Nova, in western Iberia have broken out. With the King Harbudal, still not doing anything, the land begins to shift in full upheaval (-5 inf for 7 turns).

With the riots in Carthage, the House of Scipio decides to focus its attenions elsewhere, not wanting to walk into riotous territories. Gaius Scipio makes reforms to the military, the Triarii (spear unit) are used more effectively, being massed to deal with opposing cavalry. The rest of the houses also adopt this strategy. Gaius is looked upon more as a military commander, much like Tiberius Brutus, while the Julius House, is less so.

Iberia begins to prosper and begins to build its military, invading Scallabis and Valena. Expanding the great peninsula. They have taken up to allying with their northern neighbors, the Gallic Tribes.

Sparta begins to grow less restless, as Athens seems to be excelling as the new capital.

  • Nordic Tribes: The nordic tribes continue fight amongst themselves however the Seav and a few others begin to gain strength as they subjugate several of the other tribes. While the Ulra and Laev continue to pillage the coastline of Continental Europe. The Laev begin making moves on the Jutland Peninsula as they lok for arriable land. The Svea begin building ships as well and raiding of the OTL Baltic begins. 
  • Celtic Tribes: After trade increases with the tribes of Cymru, we offer a mutual defense pact, creatings an alliance between the Celtic tribes and the tribes of Cymru (needs mod response). The military and economy expands.
  • agreed SwankyJ (talk) 19:01, May 12, 2014 (UTC)
  • Carthaginian Republic: We increase our military and navy. Ships are being build for our navy. We focus mostly on farming and trade. A main castle for the king is continuing to be built. Walls and outposts are continuing to be built around the capital city. Temples are continuing to be built for praying. Ports are continuing to be built for more trade. To stop the riots we attack the leaders of the riots and put them in prison. We tell the rest of the people that if you do not listen to us we will kill all of you.
  • I'm sorry, your nation is dealing with major revolts. You can not stop it just like that.
  • Thracians: We accept the terms of the Greek city-states alliance and spend the year developing infrastructure especially in newly captured Scythia and military, building onagers for seige. We plan to ally the Greek city-states if they choose to invade Macedonia or if they are invaded.  Our population keeps growing and reaches 109,000 at the end of the year. King Byzas appoints Thylius as the head general of the army and Greivus as the head general of the navy. He also appoints Librus II as captain of the army and Syris Pontis as the Captain of the navy. We also send an alliance offer to the Pontic Empire offering them aid in wars. MIL AND INFRA TURN
  • Pontic Dip: We deny the offer. We have an NAP ATM, and it will remain that way, for now.
  • Egypt: As the Greek city-states become more and more polarized, Egypt sees an opportunity and decides to support the faction that does not own Cyprus, as Egypt is eager to regain its lost province. Egypt also begins to send forces into Syria, taking advantage of the lack of stable government there. While it could worsen relations with the Seleucids, it is thought to not be a major issue as they would retain control of Antioch. 
  • House of Scipio: Gaius Scipio now turning away from the Carthaginian Republic for the time being, focuses his efforts in Greece. Requesting the land in Crete and Rhodes for total military support in fighting the Macedonians. We help the House of Julius take down Mediolanium.

    • Lilybaeum: We expand the infrastructure as well as the economy.

  • ​House of Julius: Lucius Julius declares war against the Gallic Tribes invading and besieging the city of Patavium. We expand the military and economy. We also help the House of Scipio befall the city-state of Mediolanium.
  • Germanic Tribes: We expand into Trier, and send a secret force which is being undiscovered and only moving at night towards northwestern Scythia to take the lone city-state. We expand the military and navy.
  • Macedonian Empire: We donate Corinth to Greeks and Cyrene to House of Scipio, in a joint agreement to not attacking us for 15 years. We attempt to slow the plague, we expand the military and the infrastructure.

  • Pontic Empire: We increase our population and expand our military and infrastructure. We prepare for the upcoming eastern war. 

251 BC

The plague in Macedonia begins to slow down, although 3,500 people are announced dead caused by the plague alone. Macedonia begins to see instability, as the King has done only little to stop the spread.

British Tribes in the north, begin to continue to fight, as now one tribe begins to gain a very large upperhand, as a second is in a close range to achieving the first.

Egypt begins to grow weary of the war to the north, as it decides if it shall abstain or take a side in the war.

What war?

haahaha MP, you have been too inactive. The one with Seleucids + Armenia vs Greeks + Thracians + Scipio + Brutus

Armenia joins the war siding with the Seleucid Empire, and encourages its ally, Egypt, to join them.

The Persian Empire's current Emperor and ruler, is overthrown as the Safavid Dynasty begins to be established, and the Parthian Dynasty begins to crumble. The new rulers are much more ambitious, desiring much land, and announcing to crush any whom stand in their path.

With land falling to the Romans in the west, action begins to take place, as many alliances are beginning to be drawn up to combat the powerhouses of Italy.

Segestica falls under the influence of the House of Brutus, as it is humbily bribed.

Iberia's influences proves to be a thorn, as Corduba falls under its grasp, including help from the Gallic Tribe, their ally, in taking Narbo Martius, in return for military support in the war with the House of Julius.

Valena succumbs to the House of Scipio's influence. The city-state becomes the foothold of Iberia, as the main and strongest base throughout the Empire, being garrisoned with thousands of legionnaires and Triarii.

Meanwhile, Dacian, Germanic, Gallic, Scythia, and Armenian peoples succeed in gaining large pieces of land, largely expanding their empires, over the years as they have been preparing their armies.

  • Gallic Tribes: With many tribes in Gaul the chief of the Parisii tribe declares himself king of the Gauls in OTL Paris claiming that as his territory. He slowly settles down and encourages more of his men to become farmers. He begins slowly (100 years or less until unity) uniting the tribes under him as the head. His army expands.
  • not a place. 
  • Celtic Tribes: We expand our economy and navy. A pact is offered to one of the British tribes in the north (the one geographically closer to the celts). This will allow trade and military assistance for the British tribes (mod response) The Celts, after developing better relations with the people of Cymru, offer the arrangement of marriages between the Celtic men and women and the men and women of Cymru, hoping to bring the tribes closer (again, mod response)
  • fair enough, this will result, in Wales becoming under Celtic Tribe rule. Approved.
  • Carthaginian Republic: We increase our military and navy. Ships are being build for our navy. We focus mostly on farming and trade. A main castle for the king is continuing to be built. Walls and outposts are continuing to be built around the capital city. Temples are continuing to be build for praying. Ports are continuing to be built for more trade. With the revolts going on, we pay the people in silver coins to stop them from revolting. Also we try to improve civil rights and make more freedoms in our country. We expand into the the territory Thamidi and Dimmidi. (If I need and algo can a mod do it for me please. Since it is unowned territory I think I can just expand into it.)
  • I can do it for you. SwankyJ (talk) 22:40, May 12, 2014 (UTC)
  • Thracians: With war looming, diplomats are sent to the Pontic Empire as Seleucid has declared war on our two countries at the same time.  We encourage Pontus to ally with us at least for this upcoming war as it would put Thrace and Pontus against Armenia and Seleucids instead of two separate battles giving us a better chance of success, promising them split land giving Sardis to Thrace and all of Halicarnassus to Pontus finally giving them a Mediterranean port. With our onagers for siege finished, King Byzas orders the General of the Army, Thylius to increase in size of the army to 15,000 strong by recruiting and training eligible men to defend the country.  The population booms over the year and hits roughly 114,000 people at the close of the year.  Infrastructure is also increased as the Scythian province is beginning to become settled with their new nation. Diplomats are also sent to House of Scipio to request an alliance as they are allied with Greek city-states and request back up in the upcoming war for future military aid in any combat against Macedonia, Seleucids or Carthage.
    • Pontic Empire Dip: Pontus refuses to align with the Thracians. If any more empty attempts are tried, the Pontic Empire will declare war on the Thracians.
    • House of Scipio Dip: We deny an alliance. As we have no trifle with the Seleucids. We will help if land in Greece is promised. We wish to occupy Larissa, the second largest city in Greece.
    • Thracian Empire: We accept these terms.
  • Macedonian Empire: Declaring war on the Thracians, and now requesting an alliance with the Seleucids and Armenians. We expand our military, and the plague begins to become a rarity.
    • ​Seleucid Dip: We accept.
    • Armenian Dip: We accept.
  • House of Julius: We wish to strengthen bonds and trade with the other houses. Although Julius has a more passive nature he orders the growth of the military.Our population continues to grow (more to come)
  • House of Scipio: We openly engage in naval warfare with Carthage crushing them. With our allies, Numidia not helping in the war. We neglect the rights until confronted and invade Thapsus and Leptis Magna. Our military increases as well as the economy. With a population boom in Rome still occurring Latium now reaches a total population of 52,000. With Rome numbering 44,000 people.
    • Palma: We expand the infrastructure and economy, as the population increases to 3500 becoming a large town.
    • Carthago Nova: We expand our infrastructure and military.
    • Valena: We expand our infrastructure and military.
    • Lilybaeum: We begin to become part of the Empire. We expand our infrastructure and economy.
    • Syracuse: We begin to become part of the Empire. We expand the infrastructure and navy.
    • Cyrene: We expand the infrastructure and military in the region. As Greek navies have been patrolling our waters keeping the bay safe, as part of our agreement.
    • Crete: We expand our economy and navy. Now becoming an ally of the Thracian Empire, we are able to acquire much wealth from their trade routes.
    • Carthage: Gaius Scipio considers burning the mega city to the ground, but falters, on account of its beauty. He begins to rebuild all which has been destroyed. And replacing the devastation with Roman buildings and architecture. Making the god of the city now Neptune.

250 BC

The plague begins to end now in Macedonia with 3500 more being victims of the disease. With a total of 12,000 dying in the empire. Roughly 9% of the total population.

Carthage begins to start stabilizing itself after the riots are drawing to an end.

The war is sparked, Seleucid Empire has attacked and sieged Pergamum.

In a large naval war, the combined navies of Iberia and Gaul, barely lose to the House of Scipio, with Gaius losing, 25% of his navy in the west.

Rome continues to see a population boom, as the surrounding territories: Arretium (J), Capua (S), Croton (B), and Tarentum (B), begin to feel the affects of the boom, and their populations begin to climb.

To the north, the Nordic Tribes, begin to prosper after the hard winters, and begin claiming the northern peninsula and the east coast.

OTL Wales, now under a marriage pact with the Celtic Tribes' prince, has joined the faction.

Numidia's territory, Siwa, begins to see much Egyptian influence, as the Egyptians, have spread themselves out to the neighboring territories.

The Greek City-states are pronounced with the finest navy in the world. Sparta, now with the fourth largest military, containing 4000 men in one small regiment.

Cyprus also begins to see much Egyptian affection, as the influence derived from the great Nile Kingdom has hit them like a force.

Persian Empire's new rulers, the Sassanids, begin to start their campaign, invading Phraaspa and Dumatha.

  • Celtic tribes: With marriage organized with the Cymru tribes, the Celts settled there begin expanding towards the south. The ties with the northern British tribe are strengthened, and the Celts expect the tribe to gain an upper hand soon enough. The economy and infrastructure is expanded to cope with these events.
  • Carthaginian Republic: We increase our military and navy. Ships are being build for our navy. We focus mostly on farming and trade. A main castle for the king is continuing to be built. Walls and outposts are continuing to be built around the capital city. Temples are continuing to be build for praying. Ports are continuing to be built for more trade. Last of the riots end. Due to a tie in the war both us and our enemy lose a bunch of troops. We set up trade routes to Egypt to trade with them.
  • How can you continue building walls around the capital? You lost Carthage.
  • I meant to say the new capital city. 
  • Where would that capital be?
  • Somewhere in the middle of my land.
  • Ahahah what? It would be Leptis Magna, as that is his next largest city. SwankyJ (talk) 21:15, May 14, 2014 (UTC)
  • Thracians: Our population increases to 115,000 With war looming we increase our mikitary and infrastructure in preparations for the war and massing troops and naval ships around pergamum prepared to attack. Mil and Infra turn.
    • Algo is done. I will post, but Seleucids took Pergamum. SwankyJ (talk) 19:43, May 14, 2014 (UTC)
    • :( VENDETTA!

    • Agreed
  • Egypt: Egypt begins to finish up its military operations in Syria as the Seleucids are distracted elsewhere. Syria becomes integrated with the rest of the nation over time, and most of the Greeks there accept Egyptian rule. To compensate for the temporary losses suffered in the campaign, Egypt raises some Jewish levies around Judea to help ease the strain on the military. Cyprus continues to be the jewel that Egypt is seeking, and influence continues carefully. 

249 BC

The last of the rioters in Leptis Magna are killed, due to Scipio hands. Gaius besieges the city, and the government collapses. Leptis Magna falls into the hands of the House of Scipio.

Not all is bad in the Carthaginian Republic. As Hanno left Leptis Magna a few weeks before, Thamidi and Dimmidi have pledged allegiance to Hanno the new king of Carthage, and the capital is now established in Dimmidi.

Riots throughout the Carthaginian Republic finally cease.

Egypt influences Cyprus, as the Greeks have all abandoned the territory. Memnon of Sparta, has made it his mission to concentrate all Rhodesian forces on Halicarnassus, as the Greek-Roman alliance prepares to assault the city.

The northern territories of Scythia and Armenia overthrow the governments and the native rebels take control of the city-states.

Gaul begins centralizing under Vercionex II, as he begins uniting all of the tribes. (+2 mil, +1 eco, +1 inf, for four years)

With the settling in Devon, the land quickly collapses and succumbs to Celtic rule. Britanica worries about its new neighbor, fearing the unified Celts to command all of Bripictland.

Riots begin to erupt in Pergamum as the new Seleucid rulers begin encountering resistance from the populace, due to the unlikely victory, and small militaristic presence.

  • Thracians: We launch a counterattack upon pergamum with Scipios allied forces and Greeks forces. Upon revenging the seizure of our land we dedicate the year to increasing military and navy increasing the military by 1000 troops and the navy with 20 warships totaling the entire Thrace military to roughly 30,000 and the navy at 420 warships. The population continues to slowly rise and reaches 123,000 at the end of the year recapture of Pergamum, and invasion of Sardis. King Byzas wants revenge on the Seleucids and begins contemplating future attacks in years to come. Mil and Navy turn
    • Scythia: Year is spent increasing infrastructure and military as people are beginning to fully accept their new place in Thrace and have begun to enjoy the new nation putting King Byzas in high appeal. MIl and Infra turn
    • Sardis: The tension between the former Seleucid land and its new nation are limited as the cultures between the greek people begin to fizzle out most differences between the nations in the past.  We expand Infrastructure and Military.
  • Carthaginian Republic: We increase our military. We focus mostly on farming and trade. A main castle for the king is continuing to be built. Temples are continuing to be build for praying. Last of the riots end. Due to a tie in the war both us and our enemy lose a bunch of troops. We set up trade routes to Egypt to trade with them. New walls and outposts are being build around the new capital Reggan. We build up our capital too make it the center of trade in our country. A border control team is formed to protect ourselves from the Romans (Scipio House). 
    • ​Scar, it's smart to build ports, but you don't own any coastline ...
    • As stated in the event Scarlet, the new capital is Dimmidi.
  • House of Scipio: We reinforce the garrison in Leptis Magna, and rebuild the defenses. Our military increases as well as the economy. With a population boom in Rome still occurring Latium now reaches a total population of 57,000. With Rome numbering 46,000 people. Although the boom now ends.
    • Palma: We expand the infrastructure and economy.
    • Carthago Nova: We expand our infrastructure and military.
    • Valena: We expand our infrastructure and military.
    • Cyrene: We expand the infrastructure and military in the region. As Greek navies have been patrolling our waters keeping the bay safe, as part of our agreement.
    • Crete: We expand our economy and navy. Now becoming an ally of the Thracian Empire, we are able to acquire much wealth from their trade routes. We send military support to Pergamum led by Marcus Scipio, who will oversee the Roman militaries in Anatolia.
    • Carthage: We expand our military and infrastructure.
    • Leptis Magna: Gaius Scipio oversees the rebuilding of Roman culture, and Roman defenses within the city-state. Expanding the military and infrastructure.
  • Celtic tribes: With the increased relations with the northern British tribe, a new tribal chieftain wishes to marry the British tribes' chieftain's daughter. (mod response, Spartian left) The economy and military expand. This also leads to centralization. The Éiric, Albic and Cymru tribes each gain a respective chieftain of chieftains who holds power over his region. The tribes of Devon spread.
    • Good look Sky, yes at this time the only thing separating the two of you is your one main religious preference, yours is Andrasta, and his is Briganta. So you also have two similar gods. So yeah, a plausible marriage will be accepted, although this would not give you control of the nation, until the chief dies, and a son is born.
    • Of course not, I had not expected it to happen either. I know how this things work, but I still gain influence over them -Sky

248 BC​

The British/Celtic marriage is a success linking the two nations but not uniting them, only increasing their relations.

General Alexander, furious at the loss of Pergamum and Sardis wishes to counterattack, but the Emperor is hesistant to allow this as too many lives have been lost over the past few years commanding the general to allow Seleucids to recover.

In Numidia, Cirta sees a population boom throughout the Capital.

Riots emerge in Scythia and Armenia as the native tribes continue resisting the government 

Prosperous summers allow harvest yields to boom across mediterranean countries (+1 eco for Scipio, Brutus, Julius, Greek city-states, Macedonia, Seleucids, Thracians, and Egypt for next five years)

The Persians begin to become bloodthirsty and begin putting troops near Bostra-Dumatha border, in attempt to try to gain land 

  • Thracians: King Byzas encourages the nation to rejoice behind Spartacus' large military victory over the Seleucids and backed by Scipio and Greek city-states.  The population increases to 127,000. Infrastructure is developed as major roads undergo renovation to make travel slightly quicker throughout the nation.  Military onagers are also built (One of Two) in the army as King Byzas looks to seize more land in a few years to come. Diplomats are sent to the Dacian Empire to propose a trade request to expand both country's economies.
    • ​Scythia: Now fully integrated into Thracian society, the Scythians no longer see themselves as prisoners of war instead, seeing themselves as full citizens as King Byzas institutes policies to make the recently acquired provinces citizens full citizens of the Thracian Empire.  Year is spent increasing Military and Infrastructure, building more roads around the major city.  Mil and Infra turn.
    • Sardis: Limited riots pop up throughout the land, quelled almost instantly by King Byzas and some of the local authorites as many Sardinians have come to celebrate and rejoice in their new nation.  Year is spent increasing economy through trading and infrastructure by building roads. Eco and Infra turn.
    • Pergamum: Pergamum rejoices the Thracian victory as they are reunited with their nation. Pergamum slowly begins rebuilding their population and begins assimilating back into the nation and developing more roads and rebuilding the tariff cutoff points to build economy.
      • Dacian Dip: We accept the trade request
  • Egypt: Egypt begins to finish up its military operations in Syria as the Seleucids are distracted elsewhere. Syria becomes integrated with the rest of the nation over time, and most of the Greeks there accept Egyptian rule. To compensate for the temporary losses suffered in the campaign, Egypt raises some Jewish levies around Judea to help ease the strain on the military. Cyprus continues to be the jewel that Egypt is seeking, and influence continues carefully. With the gain of Cyprus and Syria, Egypt begins looking towards the Berber tribes of Libya, and begins to influence the region further. 
  • House of Scipio: We reinforce the garrison in Leptis Magna, and rebuild the defenses. Our military increases as well as the economy. Rome now boasts a population of 46,000, being the largest city in the world. The faction also contains now: 175,000 being the largest in population. We begin to get back on our feet after the many wars. We request an NAP with Carthaginian Republic for ten years.

We set up trade routes to Egypt to trade with them. New walls and outposts are continuing to be built around the new capital. We continue to build up our capital too make it the center of trade in our country. A border control team is formed to protect ourselves from the Romans (Scipio House). 
  • Celtic Tribes: The tribes in Devon spread, causing a new chieftain of chieftain to spread there. This causes a tetrarchy or ceithreriail with a Ceithrerialóir as the tetrarch. The influence over the British tribe is spread, hoping to create a pentarchy in which the british tribe cheiftain would rule over other British tribes. The economy and infrastructure expand.

247 BC

Britannic Tribes lose their lands in OTL France and OTL Germany. The tribes give up all their land to the Celtic tribes.

The Roman Houses unite, forming the Roman Empire. All now unifying to the faction which currently owns Rome, the House of Scipio.

Lines are drawn, with the war in the east. Seleucids, Armenians, Pontus, Persia, and Macedonia are now fighting: Thracians, Greeks, and the Roman Empire.

With the newly formed Roman Empire. Not all are on board with the merger. As various riots spring up among the Brutus and Julius lands.

Egypt dominates influence over Siwa. Although Damascus, or OTL Syria, proves to be dominantly loyal to the Seleucid Empire. As the Empire now declares war on the Egyptians, the entire alliance now faces, the lone Egyptians.

More lands in the north, revolt against their leaders, causing more lands to be lost from Scythia, Nords, and Armenia.

The Greek city-states, begin seeing a lack of money. With the royal coffers in Athens not able to support the slacking cities any longer, and with the loss of Cyprus, the Greeks declare war on the Egyptians for the stealing of their land. The Roman Empire, with its newly acclaimed wealth completely funds the Greeks, in promise of land.

Under the rule of Vercionex, the Gallic Tribes declare war against the Dacians.


  • Dacians: We expand our military and economy. We send our troops to the Gallic Tribes.
    • Do you mean send troops to fight Gallic tribes?
    • Yes, we send our troops to fight the Gallic Tribes
    • Which area of the Gallic empire would you be sending them to?  As in which province of the nation do you want to attack, (see Talk Page map for province names).
  • ​Thracians: With Scythia and Pergamum now fully assimilated into the nation the nation's unity grows stronger as is begins fully integrating the war prize, Sardis, into the empire which will take until around 246 BC until they are fully incorporated. The population continues to steadily rise as it peaks at 132,000 by the end of the year. King Byzas realizing the Greek city-states woes, and understanding their alliance to the nation, sends supplies and troops, backing the Greeks in their attempt to gain their homeland of Cyprus that has been taken from them by the Egyptians.  We do not declare war on them we are simply giving supplies to our ally.  The onagers have been finished and with another war looming in the east, King Byzas increases the military to 40,000 troops and a large fishing yield brings in an expanded trade area, boosting economy. Mil and Eco turn.
    • Sardis:  We expand military and infrastructure as the year brings about no riots and the continuation of the integration into the Thracian Empire.  Mil and Infra turn.
  • Germanic Tribes: The Germanic peoples, really disorganized tribes at this point in time, begin to recognize that performing raids in larger numbers usually results in greater chances of success. Thusly, tribes start to change from bands numbering around 10-30 to groups with close to a hundred fighting men with associated non-combatants (usually a fifty-fifty split). While no raids of significance occur, tribal leaders band together and recognize what they can accomplish with this newfound force. Bog-Iron gathering and smelting continues to be the primary source of weapons for Germanic raiding parties. Recent unifications of small tribes prompts additional demand for bog-iron resulting in semi-permanent residences and settlements around bogs. Focus centered on military and infrastructure.
  • Carthaginian Republic: We increase our military. We focus mostly on farming and trade. A main castle for the king is continuing to be built. Temples are continuing to be build for praying. Last of the riots end. Due to a tie in the war both us and our enemy lose a bunch of troops. We set up trade routes to Egypt to trade with them. New walls and outposts are continuing to be built around the new capital. We continue to build up our capital too make it the center of trade in our country. A border control team is formed to protect ourselves from the Romans (Scipio House). 
  • Celtic Ceithreriail: The tribes in Devon spread.The economy and infrastructure expand. The Celtic tribes are reformed into a tetrarchy, with four centres; Éire (Ireland), Alba (Scotland), Cymru (Wales and Devon) and Bhreatain (former lands of British tribes)
  • Roman Empire: The first emperor, Gaius Scipio takes control of the senate. Leading along with the senate, he makes sure that Rome is more of a republican empire, rather than totalitarian. He expands the military and the infrastructure, increasing the advancement of the cities, to better the populace. The riots which have begun to uprising are started to be quelled, but won't be silenced for another four-to-eight years. Marcus Scipio is made the empire's heir, being set up to overtake the throne after his father dies. Emperor Gaius Scipio sends Tiberius Brutus to oversee the militaries in Greece and Italy. Lucius Julius is sent to the north to overlook the cities which guard the great empire's most prized cities. Gaius Scipio takes the Empire's finest legionnaires to Africa, as he plans to wipeout the Carthaginian Republic. Marcus Scipio is stayed at Rome to rule in his father's absence.
    • Valena: The state begins to rebel, stating the distance from the capital is too much, and that the newly unified Empire will be unable to maintain protection over their population. They plan to become an independent city. Economy and infrastructure is expanded, to advance the citie's own well being.
    • Crete: The island and naval base is an uproar, the leaders of a revolt overthrow most of the Roman officials, sending them to Apollonia. Not much violence takes place, as the state desires to rejoin the Greek sphere. The temp-Emperor, Marcus Scipio complies, knowing to stay in the Greeks' best interests. Economy and infrastructure is expanded.
    • Segestica: There are whispers of rebellion, but nothing is taken in action, as one of the focal points of the Aegean Sea, the people know the importance of the city, and do not wish to upset the Roman Republic. Military and infrastructure are expanded.
    • Carthago Nova: As a previous city of the Carthaginian Republic, the state wishes to rejoin its dying mother, a local general: Kaseo Nuntillius is sent military support from Palma, and crushes the pro-Cartho leaders. The navy and infrastructure is expanded.
    • Segesta: The city begins to merge into the direct empire. Lucius Julius oversees that stability is maintained, hoping to prove himself to the new emperor as a promising leader. The city-state expands its navy and economy.
    • Massilia: As a heavily influenced Greek city, the Triarii in the state seem to excel more than Rome's finest, small Greek hints and flavor are incorporated into the military. The military and navy is expanded. The state begins to merge under direct Roman control.
    • Salona: Being a previous Brutus city, the state sees no reason to be upset with the new merger, as Tiberius now oversees the region they are enclouded in anyway. The navy and infrastructure is expanded. The region begins to merge into the empire.
    • Leptis Magna: We expand our military and infrastructure, and prepare for Emperor Gaius Scipio, to come and finish off Hanno, and his dying Republic. We merge into the Empire.
    • Thapsus: We merge into the empire and expand our navy and economy. Trade has been almost fully monopolized in the western Mediterranean sea.
    • Cyrene: The region shows signs of rebellion, although strangely nothing happens. Rather to solidify the result of zero resistance, the region merges into the empire. The navy and economy is expanded.

Miletus (+3 in algo defense only, +1 in offense). Spartacus II (+4 in algo offense only, +2 in defense)

The Macedonian Empire sees its time running short. In a desperate attempt, they find their chance to strike against the distracted Dacian Tribes. The Dacian Tribes, declare war on both the Thracians and Macedonians, for their Greek similarities, and calls on its long time friend, Scythia to form an alliance.

  • Thracians:  The nation mourns the death of their former leader, King Byzas, and in turn celebrate the rise of an Emperor to head the nation.  Emperor Miletus's appointment of Spartacus II brings in the hope of expansion of the empire into future sights.  With war looming on all fronts, Miletus makes a bold move and sends troops and naval warships to aid the Greeks in their invasion of Helicanarssus.  Miletus also sends diplomats across the black sea to request an alliance with the Armenians and germanians with the promise of land consisting of tanais to thrace, Themiskyra and Samartae and Dokyra to Armenia. And Vematia and Domus Dulcis Domus to Germania for waging war on Scythia.  The population continues to rises to roughly 135,000 and Emperor Miletus greatly increases and trains the military to a well trained army of 40,000 troops armed and ready for the rough next few years, rallied by General Spartacus II.  Miletus also declares war on the Dacians, moving troops to the Dacian/Thracian broder in the Northwest, but has yet to attack.  Sardis has become fully integrated with the empire and has merged into the nation.  Infrastructure is increased as many new roads linking Tylis, Getae, and Scythia more efficiently.

  • There is no House of Scipio anymore. Your military is 2500. Your population is 35,000.
  • Egypt: With the lands of Cyprus and Syria under Egyptian control, Ptolomy begins to consider other options for expansion. While still an ethnic Greek who believes highly in Greek culture and martial training, he decides the best course of action would be to change the way the military is organized to achieve better quality against more numerous foes. To do so, Ptolemy allows the native Egyptians to enter the military and learn Greek tactics. The native Egyptian troops begin to add competent phalanx formations and cavalry units to the military. Other peoples are added to the military. Berbers are added as harassment cavalry, Arabs are hired to do likewise, Judean levies are raised as skirmishers, and Syrians are trained as high quality archery units. Phoenicians are hired to produce ships. All of this is funded with the wealth coming from the mines of Cyprus.
