Is this pure RNG? Or predestined, meaning if I fail to turn up anything valuable in Latium, I NEVER will?

Thanks.
No that's not fixed, you can get extra natural resources, but with diminishing chances if you have more than one already, and never more than 3 IIRC.

Re: Newbie Question: Carthaginian Mercenarys

Merc center for Carthage only provides an equipment bonus, but they don't need it. You need to control areas on the map that provided mercs to them: Spain for Spanish scutarii, Sicilia for slingers, etc.

Re: My first v1.3.3+DLC game ???

Games are very different from one another, from test runs, it can vary a lot. You were perhaps lucky, or unlucky, by having too many stars aligned to your benefit.

Thanks for the update Gray ;-)

To have the AI accepts demands like absorb, you can in a transaction send it a load of money.

Re: Alliance and relations?

I would say, if you feel the other ruler is becoming too friendly, calling you 'my buddy' and inviting you tasting his wine and women ... Just a little insult from time to time will do some good, so he knows his place! Nothing too intense, so no foul words against his mother :D :twisted:

the max bonus is calculated at the very end, so whatever the source of the bonus.

Re: Just curious: What is the better scenario and why?

You can play the base campaign with the extra DLC content of impediments and regional decisions in any case. If you want a challenge, play Rome in Difficult or greater difficulty.

Re: @Pocus - I really like these regional decisions

yes they do use decisions, for example in the Persia DLC, the Athenian AI likes to settle colonies along the Illyrian coast. I believe I have understood you indeed. I try to refrain adding only numerical modifiers, they can go only that far in giving flavors. Adding extra minor mechanisms takes more...

The removal chance is 3% per turn. It was 2% before the last patch, which was REALLY slow.

Re: Persia - playing as Rhodes - quite slow

If you want to speed up thing, forget maintaining a standing army of appreciable size for many turns. What you should do is alternate between a cheap army, used only for defense, and a relatively powerful mercenary army, for offense and expansion. You can and should 'burst-recruit' mercenaries when ...
