Rise of ..... campaign

Post by Hendricus » Wed Nov 22, 2017 8:33 am

I want to start a campaign that starts in 281 BC and lasts for 7 years. There are 8 armies that fight for dominance.
Each year there are 4 wars. Power with lowest score picks enemy, if scores equal follow order of list 1-8.
Both sides decide the terrain, Mountain or Agriculture, if different it becomes Hill.
All powers start with 7 provinces, So as you only lose 1 each year you can fight the full campaign.
If you fight a war against the same foe the win/loss ratio increases with an extra province for each war after the first.
Armylists:
1 Greek 280
2 Roman 280
3 Macedonian 320
4 Gallic 300
5 Seleucid 300
6 Thracian 350
7 Pontic 281
8 Illyrian 350
So I need generals that want to lead their army to glory.

oops looks like someone already has Pontic. If there can only be one player per "faction" then Roman or any that is available.

Gentlemen we have found 8 generals, for now the Thracian and Illyrian factions are not picked. As gamemaster I decide that a faction with two generals starts with a civil war. The winner of that civil war gets 5 provinces and the loser of that civil war 4 provinces, if they ever have the same number of provinces the winner of the first civil war is dominant in picking the next war. The Illyrian and Thracian factions are reformed with a different number of provinces at gamestart. If they have a general; 9 prov, and the other 3 prov. In the case of two civil wars at gamestart; 5 prov. Factions without a player as general are handled by the gamemaster and named minors.Those countries have a neutral stance tough, they never declare war, only defend themselves. At the start of each year players can decide to wage two wars, the normal war ( or civil war ) and one against a minor. So decision time for you gentleman. Going for a civil war or a bigger Illyria or Thrace. Already regret your first pick, feel free to name your favorite. Commanding an army you like makes it easier to stay with us for 7 gameyears.

As Greece we would like to advance our forces into the inviting fields of Pontus.....assuming I understand your rules correctly.

I wish all Generals all the good luck that is left after Greece uses up what she needs :D

PS.....If above is ok who picks the map and is the battle a medium one of larger?

Yes you do, do you want to fight in Mountains or Agriculture ? If Pontic wants the same terrain,great, else it becomes Hill.
Unless you or Pontic are in civil war, then you can choose another field of glory.
The one declaring the war sets up the Mediterranean very large force and very wide map with text Rise of.... campaign, password: Rise.
To prevent eager non participants from stealing the match just set up.

thanks for setting things up...
so when i looked at who to play this is what i saw>>>
1 Greek 280----Devoncop
2 Roman 280---mikeC_81
3 Macedonian 320 Nikiforosfokas
4 Gallic 300 Klayeckles
5 Seleucid 300 aryaman
6 Thracian 350
7 Pontic 281 Trogilus (1st) Wolf blitzee (2nd)
8 Illyrian 350

Schmolywar = no pick
so looks like there is confusion on the pontic leader, and Schmolywar has no army yet. as a suggestion, Syracuse is a much better choice than thracian or illyrian in terms of having a shot a hanging with the pike armies...

while all tht is getting figured out, i'll take the gauls and do what gauls do...attack the romans...
MikeC_81, the gauls will choose the mountains.
i have 2 games set up...one with mountains, and one with hills...depending on your preference, based on the rules, you choose which you want and insert PW toga for either one to get things started.

Did not pick Syracuse for Geographical reason, Devoncop can not attack Pontic because of the civil war, and the Roman player is higher on the list so can start a war before the Gauls, So Greek ( Devoncop ) must pick another victim. Klayeckles must wait a bit longer.

I'll just invade Gaul to save time then since Klay was kind enough to set up the games.
