The campaign is the framework for wars between 8 factions, Pontic has 2 players and Illyria is a minor led by me.
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.

If you want to know more please feel free to ask.

So each player resolves one battle per turn right?

I am suspending my game against the Gauls until next campaign turn atm. If in fact I even get to invade Gaul given the movement scheme

One major war against another player, a second war in that same gameyear can be done against Illyria. Because Illyria only has 3 Provinces there can only be 3 minor wars this year.

I'm still waiting for Wolf (S. Pontus) to accept our civil war. In the meantime there is peace in Pontus.

I will invade Illyria. I prefer agricultural terrain so we meet in the hills. Challenge posted, pw "rise"

Greek and Illyria have the first battle of this campaign completed, Illyrian troops used their numbers and the mobiltlity of medium troops to envelop the left flank of their Greek opponent, while their own left flank refused to advance. Woods and rough terrain slowed down the heavy infantry of the Greek army. It became a bitter fight and if you like peace this was a bad day. So Illyria wins a province and Greece loses one.

An excellent summary. Fine use of the terrain and the swamping of my own med Inf screening force in the woods to my Left got Illyrian forces being the hoplites in force before they were able to slog across broken terrain to defeat the lighter troops on the Illyrian right.
Kudos to the random map generation. Fascinating terrain to fight over.

My Macedons were able to win the valiant Thracians, 43% vs 5%. Thanks for the game, Schmolywar.
For Byzantium!!

The Romans can report victory against the Greek incursion. The veteran Princepes broke through the Greek centre-right while the Equites Cavalry held the flank as the Legionaries moved inwards to defeat the the Greek centre. The Italian allies held the Greek left long enough for victory to be secured. Final score was 30-58 in favour of Consul MikeC_81 who will now adopt the agnomen Graecianus to his name!

A predictably professional and well planned performance by the Romans who took advantage of a thin spread Greek line to smash through with their best troops on the right and centre as the Hoplites were unable to cope with the impact charges of the veteran Roman infantry.

Well deserved win and Greece reels.....

Yes my dear Aryaman i am afraid he will do. We have already started this game and everything seems you are right. Those Spaniards do not love agricultural maps.
For Byzantium!!

I just want to make sure, as the Roman player having played the defense against Greece, my obligations are done until the next campaign season right? Unless I try to attack Illyria who is neutral?

Yes no further obligations and congrats with winning a province, attacking Illyria is no longer an option this 281 BC year. As all others have to await it's conclusion. Perhaps next year,

The first battle of the Pontic civil war has been resolved with North Pontus the victor 48/22. North Pontus seized high ground in the center with their left flank guarded by mountains and were able to use this advantage to eventually overwhelm the South's flanks and envelope their still lively pikemen.
