Re: Any tips on playing Judea?

Judea main goal is to recapture Jerusalem, so that you can start building up the holy temple (it has no less than 8 levels of improvements and the higher the get, the more impressive the bonuses are) to do so you must bid your time so that either one of these 2 things happen: a) Jerusalem owner is ...

Re: Any tips on playing Judea?

Don't panic. Find someplace to expand. Keep up the faith, this is actually important as your fanaticism is a bonus. It is a tough faction, many are, but the tough ones are fun if you are not wedded to winning. Thank you for the ideas. They make sense. Just hide in the shadows until an opportunity o...

Any tips on playing Judea?

I have just started a game with this very interesting faction. They start with a single poor province, a tiny army, and everything around them is owned by stronger nations. Nabatea is an obvious target, but it is defended by an army stronger than mine. And building up my army will take a long time. ...

Re: Are there some historical leaders in the game?

This would need to be tied to a kind of "historical pack" of events. Why not, it should be optional. Not everybody wants to have a game with the high predictability historical leaders and events give somehow. Some prefer a more freeform game. The historical pack idea is a great one, and w...

How do you deal with aging?

Having become a Glorious Roman Empire in a golden age, I have picked up two aging tokens in four turns. Now everything is going very well for the empire, which has a huge surplus in money, manpower, metal, is getting a lot of legacy points, does not have much decadence, has thirty regions getting le...

Re: Are there some historical leaders in the game?

Historical leaders can create more issues than fun. Perhaps they will return in a special pack/events, optionally. I don't know. Issues: - if their window of appearance is historical, then with some fore knowledge, you'll wait until you get a good leader before doing major operations or in reverse,...

Re: Are there some historical leaders in the game?

no, in an early version there were a few historically named 3* leaders. The problem was they totally distorted the combat system as units they led all tended to get 8-10 on the combat rolls regardless of the troops they were leading. I think a three is too much of an advantage for anyone, as your e...

I thought there would be some historical leaders in the game, but I have yet to see any in my game as Rome, except fro Horatius. At about a hundred turns, I thought I would have seen a few more by now. Having a few Historical leaders in the game, would add a lot of flavor. They would not need to app...

Sicily was actuallly very fertile during this period. Change requested.

After conquering Syracuse and Agrigentum in Sicily, I was surprised to find that both regions had a fifty percent penalty to food production. The Sicily of today has poor soil, but in ancient times the soil was some of the most fertile in the ancient world, and the island was the bread basket of Rom...

Do you have Italia Superior as a formed province? If so, you can raise the special provincial unit, Italian infantry. These are medium infantry who should do much better in the mountains than legions or cavalry. I would also bring plenty of skirmishers to support them. A bit army of these units shou...
