The campaign is the framework for wars between 8 factions, Pontic has 2 players and Illyria is a minor led by me.MikeC_81 wrote:Ok time out. Can we solidify the campaign rules please? I don't want to do this helter skelter.
Provinces can be won and lost during those wars. 1 in the 1st, 2 in the 2nd and 3 in the 3th war etc, against the same foe.
The order declarations of war are made is by the general ( player ) with the lowest number of provinces first or if that is equal the rank in the starting armylists.
I make a prioritylist after each war. Ganging up against the same foe is not allowed, so as long as there are 8 players we have 4 normal wars.
If such a war is between the 2 Pontic players it's called civil war. As a sideshow it is possible to declare war against the minor Illyria.
Minor Illyria has a neutral stance, but if a player nation declares war the normal win/loss of a province is at stake.
Nations can only win as much provinces as they can lose during a war.
Example N Pontic loses the 1st civil war and also their war against Illyria during 871 BC, the loser of the 1st civil war gets 4 provinces and losing against Illyria costs another province. So 3 provinces to start 870 BC. Having the lowest number of provinces he decides to wage the 2nd Pontic civil war ( win or lose 2 provinces ) and the clever boy also wants a 2nd N Pontic/Illyrian war ( win or lose 2 provinces ). Because he only started with 3 provinces he can win only 3. So he must lower the win/loss ratio of the minor war. If he loses those wars he is out of the game. History can be cruel. The player(s) with the most provinces after 7 gameyears is the winner, probably somebody that never initiated a war himself, but beating most that challenged him.
