    Letters from military men and soldiers on the eastern front were collected by a Alexandrian trader in the years after the chaos of 641. They give some clues to the events during the reign of another short-lived emperor, Heraklonas.


    Heraklonas, son of Heraclius and Martina, rejects Arab demands.

    From a captain in the travelling detachment of the excubitores (the emperor's guard), writing from the provisional military capital of Antioch, to a co-conspirator, a fellow captain in the 1st Tyre Tourma:

    From a soldier of the 1st Tyre Tourma, encamped near Antioch, writing to a certain Joseph, apparently an old Greek friend from Tyre and now a refugee in Antioch:

    The 1st Tyre Tourma arrives in the north, reporting that the garrison at Tyre has defected to the enemy.


    Jews and Monophysite Christians in Syria and Palestine welcome the Arab invaders.

    I am not sure if it has to do with the number of civs knowing the advance only. There are historical dates for discovering any advance (the corresponding info file is in RFCE package).

    RE Mercenaries: I was able to hire Avar Horse Archers right after I researched the tech. It is strange you don't have any yet...

    Part of the reason I always agree on flip is that Arabs get some units in southern Egypt (not sure if that was fixed in Beta 13). It is easier to reconquer Tyre and Jerusalem, rather than give Arabs more troops.

    I think a Byzantium game might make me rage quit.
