So I decided to boot up a Paragon game and see if I could build a large empire with Egypt. My goal was to bring my Militia up to Babylon, harass them so I could pop Pyramids, set up 3 cities in my core, go straight for War Chariots and set out to conquer Jerusalem and Babylon as fast as I can. I got DOW'd by Persia and then by Greece. Persia made peace and payed me 60 gold, and I immediately DOW'd Carthage and took Sur. Greece gave me a bunch of techs for peace, and then Carthage suddenly made peace after Capitulating to Greece. Rome conquered Greece, DOW'd me twice, then collapsed and Christianity was founded in Iberian Qart Hadsht. Right before the Fall of Rome I built a city in my southern core to get ivory to make a more modern army, though I soon remembered Horse Archers exists. My game ended as Plague ripped through my nation and sent it into a domestic crisis, causing me to collapse into nothingness. Here's some pictures of an autosave of my empire at it's height: EDIT: On second thought, perhaps I should have named this thread one post gloats so this could be a centralized area for everyone to gloat about games that they don't want to take the time to detail in a walkthrough. Instead of a thread devoted to an empire that was toppled by green faces.
