    It does appear that there are other Loyalist Legions in Rome and Umbria. Are they a real threat? Where is the Loyalist fleet(s) - if you know?

    Now that was a very nice first battle, but I fear this might actually be trick. The Senate and Pompeius has sent forward a smaller force to make you believe that they have few forces left and then as you march on Rome confident on victory they will march in behind your lines and encircle your forces… or it might be that the Senate actually are fighting badly and that it will be a quick victory in Italy. As for the rest of the empire I am thinking the war might turn out to last for a long time indeed…

    There's no way I'm going to miss this, since I like your writing style and I also happen to like Caesar, whose writings are inspiring and written in eloquent Latin.

    Note that Rome should be kept pretty busy on its eastern flank too (war against Pontus in the message log), so this should indirectly profit Caesar. It seems Caesar's luck is still holding on

    Knowing the author's excellent work on "Sforza", I will surely follow this AAR!

    Good luck and conquer them all!

    Well, I just looked to see how long it's been since I did feedback in this thread, and...

    I've never done feedback in this thread!

    They say parents forget the names of their children (or cats) when they have more than 2 (we have 7, combined). So, I guess now that I have more than 2 active AARs running...

    To avoid absurd repetition, I shall now WELCOME ALL OF YOU!!! Corporately.

    Thanks! It is a very interesting period. I did quite a bit of period research for the game, and found it fascinating.

    I'll be following this one for sure.

    Be sure to fix the research bug before you play too far in the game.
    Forgot about that research bug. I'll try upgrading to 1.2 tonight, or so... I agree it should be exciting. As I mentioned, Comagoosie has a similar setup, but I was surprised no one seems to have started with the 705 scenario before me (Comagoosie started in 696, I think...)!

    Thanks!

    Quote Originally Posted by Encarta98

    One thing though - some of the starting character stats seem quite strange! 18 year old Salvidienus Rufus is more popular than Caesar? Mark Antony has mediocre martial stat (6) and mediocre charisma (6)? Much like Hannibal not being a particularly good general in the 2nd Punic War scenario. Obviously there could be much debate about the 'real life stats' of historical figures, but it seems a strange decision if only from a game perspective!

    Nonetheless, good luck! (though I am a Republican at heart )
    I think there's some randomness in the initial stats, except perhaps for historic characters. Actually, from my research, Mark Antony didn't strike me as that stellar a general. Nor as a very likeable guy, either. Thanks!

    Half of me wonders if that was designed, because after all... he DID just switch sides! In fact, he's the archetype for the general getting too big for his britches, and revolting against the civil authority! I trust his loyalty will improve with time...

    Most welcome! You're doing great work, and I'm hoping to be able to keep up with it! Yes, the quote is as iconic as it is controversial. It sounds like something he would say, though...

    I actually watched the first season (for the 1st time) as part of my research for the game. Quite well done, I thought! I had to fend the librarians off, as it took me a while to find time to watch, and they were scratching at my door... Someone reminded me later I could have just used Netflix...

    I'm curious what will happen there, too! I'm not positive, conceptually, that I will play this AAR beyond the end of the civil war, and so I cannot guarantee Octavius will grow up to be featured... That said, this may still be a long war, and you may well see him!

    I'm not ALL that far into the game/story, but to date I've not seen any Roman ships. Not that I'm looking for them. And, yes, there are a startling number of legions out there!

    Excellent! So what's your opinion on the accuracy of the "The die is cast" quote, based on your readings? Not that he would necessarily write the same as he spoke. On the other hand, in important situations, it would seem to be his personality to carefully craft what he had to say...

    Well... Apologies to all of you for not being around. This was a big week, for me! I've just finished a CE-only tidbit on tactics, which should be available to those who have access there.

    I also was gone Monday to northern Kentucky, to visit a magnificent, mindblowing museum about a subject that is not to be discussed on the Forum... I also, Tuesday, was involved in the completion of a major statewide petition drive, on a subject that is not to be discussed on the Forum! But, anyway, I've been busy, but I'm back!

    Thanks for reading! I'll have an update in a few hours.

    In victory, Cotta turns, now, to return to Bonoina. Pictor is meaning to land in Umbria, behind the advancing Loyalists. Meanwhile, Caesar is gathering another legion in Liguria, so he can lead the combined force south toward Rome, itself.

    Unfortunately for him, Pictor’s army landed before Vinicius’ army had passed, and the clash was bloody for both sides. While Loyalist casualties were higher, Pictor’s landing was untenable… He was forced to retreat up the coast, back toward Bononia.



    Thankfully, that would mean that Vinicius has been bloodied even before Cotta’s army (upon reaching Bonoina) has to deal with him.

    I arranged to trade stone to Bononia, from the Lycian League! That will bring in .13 gold for our armies, which is welcome, indeed.

    Not so welcome was the attack upon Marcus Lepidus' positions north of the Pyrrenes! He is outnumbered 3-1. However, he expected this, and so he intends to weaken the enemy as much as possible before having to retreat.



    Meanwhile, in Rome (check the above graphic!), the Senate, deserters, patriots, etc. all gathered to come to the defense of Rome, forming new units to oppose Caesar.

    Belladonna's fleet dispersed, at this time, in order to scout along the Adriatic coast, on both sides, and to place several ports under blockade. What the scouts found was stunning -- many legions, and smaller detachments, all moving to the defense of the frontiers with the rebellious provinces! An army of 4 legions was marching, slowly, north from western Macedonia toward the Illyrian hills. Such a force would completely overwhelm Caesar's friends, there.



    Sensing need, Publius Servilius Vatia, a friendly general, chose to use his own resources to raise a whole legion in Helvetii! Vatia is a loyal friend to Caesar, and a known rival of Pompey Magnus, which surely prompted this act of good nature. His father, incidentally, is Dux of a province in western Spain which remains loyal to the Senate. I wonder if this family tie might come of some use in the future…

    Quintus Licinius Cinna retires from his Civics praetorianship to take command of the 6,000 soldiers, and begins to lead them into northern Italy, where there will be many uses to be made of such a legion, no matter to whom its loyalties lie.



    However, there are generous senators in Rome, too. Soon, rumors of two large legions in Etruria reach Caesar’s ears. He will have to face these, on approximately equal terms, before he can threaten Rome...

    Hmm, the Caesarian faction is scraping small victories, though I found the same thing, Pompey is powerful in Spain, I wish you good luck on the forthcoming battles!

    Quite the build-up in this march(ing) toward war! It is best if you are able to engage the Loyalists in the pre0gathered phase. I fear that you allow them to coalesce then your "puny rebellion" will be destroyed! btw - be watchful for the Legion of excellent troops on the forest moon!

    [Nice AAR, but...

    You are correct that Rome will be building up faster than Caesar, so it seems to me that Caesar must concentrate his two armies as you did and get the initiative before the Romans can put together 40K+ legions (which they will if given the chance).

    So it seems to me that the legion in the East planning a holding operation is a waste of resources. Wouldn't they be better used by joining with Caesar to help beat the legions around Rome before the Greek reinforcements arrive? Indeed, a holding operation is hardly possible with this game, since a lost battle drives the loser away and the winner can keep pursuing without any appreciable delay. And make no mistake, these units are no match for what they will be facing coming up the coast. But they will take time to arrive, time which can be used to win the war (getting there "the fastest with the mostest", as whasshisname put it...

    I did try this strategy with the SPQR mod, and it was working pretty well , but unfortunately Caesar died within a few months of the start, which made the civil war pointless.

    It seems to me that Caesar's only chance is to keep his enemies from concentrating by keeping Rome off balance. Retreating units cannot join up effectively with reinforcements, which is good news if Caesar has the initiative. But if the rebels lose the innitiative as happened in my scenario when Caesar died and I could not replace him nor join up with arriving reinforcements because his 23 units were in an enemy province, the rebels can kiss their ass goodbye.

    PSThis battle is described in the thread "the best laid plans...."

    Are all those Roman legions leaderless or are they just reinforcements for existing legions? If they are indeed leaderless, maybe you can exploit that?

    Can you hire Heavy Infantry in the Gallic provinces? If not you're really going to strike hard at the Italian peninsula before they hire more legions from Rome.

    I think your biggest problem will be Greece, all those rich provinces will provide a powerful base for the loyalists even if you do take Italy.

    if you don't have version 1.2 yet, then get it now!
    Otherwise the enemy shall have over 1m soldiers in the end... which has already happened to me...

    and it is funny, I didn't remember that you were roman rebels, so I thought something odd when seeing romans fighting romans...

    Anyways, if you are playing 1.1 or 1.0 or some other version... you're gonna get beaten...
