Marvin you will enjoy them but they are not easy ....they are they most rebellious miserable citizens I have come across :D

In one of my MP games I was landed with a totally incompetent leader....within a couple of years unrest was growing and after five the mob beat him to death in the square of the Capital along with his bodyguard......

Three years later they murdered his successor who was somewhat more competent and they remain fractious to this day 😂

If you take on the Bactrians check your life insurance policy 😉

Remember they are a client state of the Seleucids so unless or until you break away from them in your independence struggle you cannot have an independent foreign policy so are unable to expand your borders unless the Seleucids attack the Saka or war with Maurya breaks out.

It is a very different kind of challenge but I am enjoying it.

Devoncop, yeah, I look forward to seeing if I can beat your record of 5 turns for a leader change due to the mob.

The game is now posted and ready for joining. PW will be en route by PM. I'll start on Monday, or earlier if everyone who commented reserving a faction signs on.

Rome can bring civilisation to most dishonourable nations.

In the case of the Antigonids however that would be a task more in the category of a miracle so we would hand that one over to the God Appollo.......... :wink:

I'll take Armenia if it's still free. (Or any other country if there's a preference.)

Sounds interesting. Count me in please.
As I havnt played a lot so far, I dont have any strong preference. Ptolemies or Carthage would be nations with some interesting perspective in the game I think.
Hello! The challenge has been created. We need a strong Ptolemeus to keep the south fun.

The old and glorious Empire of Egypt, the cradle of culture, that already has its place in history of mankind, greets the young nations all in the world that try to find they way to glory and to a place in history. May you become adult and a nation being remembered in future.

Special greetings to our neighbour in the west, Carthage, that might have a remarkable future in sight while others may be a weak glimmer in history of nations, like these hardly known ones in the north of the earth, somewhere across the great sea. May peace and trade between our nations be all we have to care about

Greetings to the states in Greek, that had seen a short period of glory before it is all over again now. Greetings to the people in Italy like the Etruscians, Senones, the people or Tarentum and those of some smaller and hardly known city states in Italy.

Did you forget Rome ?

Or was this a deliberate slight ?

Ah, Rome, yes.
It is mentioned: "... and those of some smaller and hardly known city states in Italy." Rome is somewhere included here.
Greetings, Ptolemeus

For far too long and far too often once great Empires, declining into decadent corruption fail to treat seriously the young up and coming dynamic nations of the future until their soldiers are at the gilded gates of the Palace and the once proud navy of ancient renown lies rotting on the ocean bed.....😉

We're gonna wait a little longer for Epirus to join up. If Morbio does later tonight (East Coast US time) then I'll start it before I go to bed.

Otherwise, I'll do it when I get a chance tomorrow, which could be any time since I have to drive from NYC to Virginia on Sunday. Just be patient, and I promise I'll get this started once - all - the indicated players who posted in this thread have signed up.
