Client States as of end of 272 B.C.

In 279 B.C., Macedon won a decisive victory over the Aetolian League and it became a client state of Macedon. If Macedon continues to control the Aetolian League until the end of 270 B.C., it will become a province of Macedon.

In 279 B.C., Carthage won a decisive victory over Syracuse and it became a client state of Carthage. If Carthage continues to control Syracuse until the end of 270 B.C., it will become a province of Carthage.

In 278 B.C., Macedon won a decisive victory over the Achaean League and it became a client state of Macedon. If Macedon continues to control the Achaean League until the end of 269 B.C., it will become a province of Macedon.

In 277 B.C., Ptolemaic Empire won a decisive victory over Bithynia and it became a client state of Ptolemy. If Ptolemy continues to control Bithynia until the end of 268 B.C., it will become a province of Ptolemaic Empire.

In 276 B.C., Carthage won a victory over the Bruttians. The Bruttians were already in a weakened state due to a prior (non-decisive) loss to Carthage. Thus they capitulated and became a client state of Carthage. The Bruttians will become a province of Carthage if Carthage continues to control the area until the end of 267 B.C.

In 274 B.C., Gauls won a decisive victory over the Iberians and Iberians became a client state. The Iberians will become a province of the Gauls, if the Gauls continue to control them until the end of 263 B.C.

In 273 B.C., Seleucids had a draw with Atropatene that resulted in ravaging by the Seleucids. As Atropatene was in a weakened state, it capitulated and became a client state of the Seleucids. Atropatene will become a province If the Seleucids continue to control it until the end of 262 B.C.

In 273 B.C., Ptolemaic Empire won a battle against Pontus, which was in a weakened state. Pontus is now a client state and will become a province if Ptolemaics continue to control it until the end of 262 B.C.

In 272 B.C., Rome won a victory over Campania. It was a decisive victory. Campania is now a client state of Rome and will become a province if Rome continues to control it until the end of 261 B.C.

In 271 B.C., The Ptolemaic Empire won a decisive victory over the Nabataeans, who are now a client state and will become a province if held until the end of 260 B.C.

In 271 B.C., Macedon won a decisive victory over Thrace, who are now a client state and will become a province if held until the end of 260 B.C.

Weakened Minor Powers:

None

"To put movement sequence as simply as possible, there will be 2 pools of players, those that chose their last move and those that did not. Those that did not choose in the last movement sequence will be in the pool that can choose in the next movement sequence."

The Italian city lotto is used for this. Saturday's lotto for 6 October will be used for 270 BC:

1. Epirus – Firenze - will be active
2. Rome – Roma - will be active
3. Macedon – Milano - will respond
4. Gauls – Napoli - will be active
5. Carthage – Palermo - will respond
6. Seleucids – Genova - will respond
7. Ptolemaic – Torino - will respond
8. Antigonus – Venezia - will be active

The order of active movers will be based on the lowest number received on a ball. The responders will be in order of the highest number received on a ball, with highest number responding to lowest number. If there is a tie, the next lowest/highest ball will be used.

The Italian city lotto is used for this. Saturday's lotto for 6 October will be used for 270 BC and results are as follows:

1. Epirus – Firenze - will be active - 26,33,43,50,59
2. Rome – Roma - will be active - 37,47,64,77,78
3. Macedon – Milano - will respond - 04,19,68,77,80
4. Gauls – Napoli - will be active - 08,17,35,82,84
5. Carthage – Palermo - will respond - 09,51,52,79,89
6. Seleucids – Genova - will respond - 04,15,34,38,85
7. Ptolemaic – Torino - will respond - 02,38,49,62,88
8. Antigonus – Venezia - will be active - 02,10,39,77,88

The order of active movers will be based on the lowest number received on a ball. The responders will be in order of the highest number received on a ball, with highest number responding to lowest number. If there is a tie, the next lowest/highest ball will be used. Antigonus has first choice. Tom, please choose and also choose size of battle. Steve will respond and choose terrain.

We have now played 10 years in game time. The map is beginning to show domination by Macedon, Carthage and Ptolemy. It is inevitable that a clash of major powers will begin. Therefore I am adding a new rule to facilitate the diplomacy that would occur when a major power has its "sphere of influence" threatened. The sphere of influence is defined as its geographic region - East, Central and West. Whenever a responder responds to an invasion in his own sphere of influence, he can choose to use his own army to respond, using the same rules as if he were responding to defend a client state regarding mobilization, winning, losing and draws. If this defender wins the battle on behalf of this minor state, the minor state will not become a client state but will agree to play 100T to the defender to mitigate his mobilization cost. The benefit to the defender is to counter the attacking player's attempt to add to his sphere of influence.

For example, Rome attacks the Boii. If Gauls (Danny) defends, Danny can choose to defend with the Gauls instead of the Boii because Boii is in the West, the Gauls sphere of influence.

Expanding the Sphere of Influence - Provinces

Once Provinces are established, the sphere of influence of a major power will expand if the province is in a separate geographical area. Example, Epirus conquers Apulia and it becomes a province. Apulia is in the West, so the sphere of influence of Epirus would then be Central and West.

Major powers can attack from East to Central or West to Central. Central major powers such as Epirus or Macedon can attack in either direction. Once a client state is established by a major power in the central area, this power may also attack in the East or west.

For some reason I am not getting replies when they are posted, so I will PM the group in case anyone else has this issue.

I think everyone has this issue. email notifications do not seem to be being sent out. (Although I did have a couple a week or so ago). Something to do with the new web page I suspect.

You can, however, see your notifications in the top right of the forum screen.

Bithynia is a client state of Ptolemy. Richard, you must respond to this. You may choose to defend as Bithynia or use your Ptolemaic army. Antigonus has chosen a large battle. You must also choose terrain.

The Gauls have the next choice. Danny, please choose your move and also size of battle. Steve will respond.

Thanks Richard. Danny has had to resign, so I am looking for a new player to take on the Gauls. Please let me know if you know anyone with interest.

Guido,

It is now Rome's choice. You are somewhat limited in choice; You may attack the Celtiberians or invade in the central area. Ian is due to respond to you.

TGM, I will set up a game for Epirus against Apulia, medium battle, Med hilly PW rascals.

Trogilus, Mac -

The Boii fight as Gauls, I assume? If so, I'll fight against Trogilus' attack on Mediterranean Agricultural terrain.
