    Random Postcards from the Roman Empire:

    "The Horror of war"

    "Following the siege of Zama, Fabius Maximus froze, refusing to take part in the merry pillaging of the hated city. He had seen so much."

    (Seems like my Principes freeze at 0 moves when adopting "Maniple tactics formation." Bug or PTSD?)

    Tip: Bring a lot of extra units to a siege. I mean a lot! Defenders retreat like crazy!

    Random Postcards from the Roman Empire:

    "Dertona has Fallen!"

    "The Consular army of Gnaeus Iulius Verus hurries off as the news reaches Rome: Dertona has fallen! The road to Ibericum lies open!"

    (Consular because I can only build 2 of these!?)

    Tip: The Samnite warrior is a fast heavy infantry unit. I loaded Rome with gladiators (Slaves that give produced units +1 XP) + builings then added a GG. 39 XP and a "Trained" promotion from out of the box!

    Beautiful. I really like the sense of isolation. All alone in the world... For now!

    A little later in that game.
    I'm on my way to probably become the Nordic Myths religious leader...

    War against Rome with the Celts as my vassal... just took that village down there.
    Hope we will push them back behind the Alps soon

    So... c. 200 years later.
    Rome is back in Italy and the Gauls are history ;)

    Greece is extremely in front by points, though...

    I'm in a Rome game too, at the moment.
    It looks like you're also playing the Eurasia XL map...

    This is my overview:
    Peace and happyness with everybody... for now :D

    I actually sorted this out because the ”grecoillyrian alliance” attacked up the hill over the river. They sent loads of stacks but defenders held out and levelled up like crazy. Then the Aquitani attacked the other front and we started to buckle... Dont overextend your turf on Emperor difficulty...
    I got my cash mainly by selling tech. At this level AI can pay lots!
    I love this map! I love this mod!

    BTW brettschmitt, I believe you have done some fixes to this scenario, will you be posting a new version shortly?
