800 BC: Corruption in C.4! Citizens demand TEMPLE! Well, guys, I can't build you a Temple. We're BARBARIANS. Get over it. 720 BC: I found E.2 in Scandinavia to host the fleet for the English Invasion. 660 BC: Karakorum emits a Settler to the northeast. I open the cordon to let it go wherever it wants, but next turn the Settler starts building a road. 600 BC: The Mongol Settler heads southeast. The cordon closes in around Karakorum. Every so often a Militia appears and has to be killed. 500 BC: Mongols found Bokhara and their time is almost up. 460 BC: After the usual carnage, the two Militia defending Karakorum are destroyed - and the city with them. My surviving units start moving towards E.2. 440 BC: A Leader reaches Bohkara and the city becomes E.3. The Mongols are down. Only London stands between me and a conquest victory - although when England goes down, it's likely that Greece will spawn. But that will be the last. If I'm very lucky I might get a unit into Athens before it can build a defensive unit. England however is proving to be a thorough nuisance. It's completely turtled on its island, showing no inclination to discover Mapmaking. It's built Barracks, Granary, Marketplace and City Walls. It is already garrisoned by two ordinary Phalanxes and a Militia but now it's building a Veteran Militia. Veteran units behind City Walls will make London very expensive for Barbarians to capture, even though I am slowly replacing my 4.5 AV Legions with 6 AV Chariots. 1 AD: No progress. Yawn.
