    The Legacy of Alexander the Great - Seleucid Empire campaign

    INTRODUCTION


    Hello my this is my first AAR. So here goes game setting:
    What: Rome VV 2.32 with Epigoni Mod to the Hindu Kush v2.01b
    Country: Seleucid Empire
    Rules: No cheating, reloading ok
    Goals: I will make some attempt to recreate Alexanders Empire in 150 years. My English is bad, be warned! After that conquer Mediterranean region.
    Difficulty: normal.
    Year:456
    Writing Style:Gameplay


    1.Seleucos I

    1.1.0. 456 year of reforms.

    After many wars between Alexanders generals, Seleucus I gained eastern parts of Alexanders empire. To fulfill dream of restoring Alexanders Empire, his new country need some serious reforms. He used hes popularity about local noble class to do some harsh reforms. Of coarse middle class should be respected too.

    First was decided nation ways of life in different aspects:

    Second choice was which god would be most important of all in nation:

    Third was enacting new laws. Ruler decided to ban pirates and help strengthen cult of Muses:

    After those reforms Seleucos proclaimed himself to be god:

    And of coarse strengthen in those barbarian Persians Greek traditions:


    After reforms there must be done trade arrangements between city's and army reorganization to face treats in east from Partia. Trading was organized so, that city's with many researchers receive extra papyrus. In every corner of empire was recruiting new armies.

    Soon enough our mighty god ruler took command of forces in the east:

    Ptolemaic kingdom offered us alliance, but we refused, because they own OUR land:

    In first April crime was committed by Armenia, they killed our 'special'(0 charisma) envoy, who tried to give gift for Armenian king- knife in the back. This unlawful action wont go away unpunished!:

    By order by his father, Antiochus, heir to the throne of Seleucid realms, took role of Chief torturer. Job he dreamed from childhood was his at last, so he was very greatfull for this position:

    Parthia has turned they grabby little hands on some tribe in north. While they busy its time for revenge. Seleucus ordered attack on envoy-murderers Armenians all his western forces:

    Current wars:



    Soon fallowed invasion led by Bayad Aramid in Armenian Artashat, which was fairly successful:

    And after that capital city too got besieged. Armenian army remnants retreated in Uti wastelands, where they disturbed barbarian hordes:

    By order of our god ruler in our capital started construction works :

    good luck ... not sure there has been a Seleucid AAR for a while so this will be well worth following
    Remember, whatever the question, the answer on 18 September is Yes ...

    1.1.1. 457 year of preparations.

    Start of this year was peaceful. Armenian city's still was under siege, last planed units where recruited. People lived they lives.

    Like past, this year most important god is Muses:

    In end of march Armenian fortresses have been fallen. Armenia became part of mighty Seleucid Empire. Soon afterwards, after giving oath to be loyal servants of current ruler, former nobles of Armenian court was released from prison to serve they new country in different positions:

    New mission from council of nobles is to conquer second Armenian state-Lesser Armenia:

    Archon of Mesopotamia built temple:

    Parthia have failed to conquer Messagetea tribe. Maybe they are weaker as our scouts reported:

    Our heir wants new title, of coarse our little boy can have it:


    Barbarians are on rampage at our borders, border guarding must be top priority in western front:

    Again one of pretenders of Alexanders(our) lands want alliance, we must refuse such offers:

    Irrigation must be constructed all over our great nation:

    1.1.2. 458 year of research.

    Start of this year was peaceful. Armenian kingdom has fallen, but there is still Lesser Armenia, who should be included in Seleucos realms. Parthia is bigger treat then ever.

    And again most important god is Muses:

    Looks like our dear ruler are pretty cool guy who likes other people wives:


    They shall not forget ever they god-emperor Seleucos. I must be immortalized:

    And again they are proposing alliance?! When they will finally understand we want their land not help:

    Asking for military access? Well fine by us(maybe we could even ally them huh?):

    All technology levels have been risen. Cheers to our great researchers:



    Greek culture started to spread:

    And of coarse construction works continue:

    1.1.3a. 459 year of war.

    This year started with plan. Take out last Armenian kingdom. All efforts should be made to make it happen.

    Like always most important god is Muses:

    LESSER armenia have made alliance with Parthia?! They think that will stop us!!! NEVER!:

    So our new envoy Argishti will bring very special gift to Armenian king(our dear heir idea). Very good wine from Antioch(with special ingredient cyanide). So he set sail to win. Well there was little problem about their cup bearer and they got angry... Murderers, they killed poor envoy just because stupid cup bearer didn't like our wine!!! This mean we must wage war!!:


    LESSER armenia friends Parthians was in hurry to defend they little allies. Well good for them :

    Meanwhile we learned how to trade properly:

    We will starve off those Armenian bastards!:

    First battle with Parthia and victory it is of coarse!:


    Our ruler dint want to wait for city walls to crumble so he charged at once and took over city!:


    Stratos Arsaces dinnt want to be weaker then our dear ruler attacked city walls too. And he took capital!!:

    Parthians already begging for peace. NEVER!:

    At last our ruler engaged combat and he was victorious!:

    Meanwhile we learned from this war how to increase discipline among men:

    This city must be our, ordered our ruler and so it be:

    This year started with plan. Take out last Armenian kingdom. All efforts should be made to make it happen.

    Stratos Arsaces too wanted to take city fast, but he failed. Well, we will talk about this after war:




    Temple was built in on of our provinces:

    After three month siege Dehistan has fallen in our hands:

    Seleucos strike again:

    Even in battle there is time for some love isn't it?:

    After this victory we don't need hurry anywhere anymore. Lets rest a bit:

    Are they serious??! NEVER!:

    Construction went as planed. Well not counting two week delay..:

    There is a limit of 20 screenshots per post; your update (the one posted about 12 hours ago) has nearly 30 after your latest edit. Please fix this and plan future updates in such a way that you stay under the limit.

    EDIT: Thanks, quick work.

    1.1.4a. 460 year of Parthians defeat(serves them well).

    This year started with war. And ended with victory, actually two victories. Well anyway lets take a look.

    No more rest, assault! Oh well nevermind...:

    The only important god in our realm is Muses!:

    Stratos Arsaces reached last Parthian hold out, victory is our!:


    Second assault was more successful and ruler took Pissuri province under our control:

    From long war even our dear little heir loose money:

    Armenian capital have been taken, to their last city marched forces of the west:

    Armenian try to withstand us. What an pitiful attempt. We even captured their general:


    Our ruler engaged remnants of Pathrian army and defeated them:

    This year started with war. And ended with victory, actually two victories. Well anyway lets take a look.

    Without commander, Armenian forces where shattered into dust:

    And soon after their last city have fallen too. Time for some diplomacy:

    Annexing was inevitable:


    Same goes for Parthians:

    For great success against Parthians our ruler became very popular:

    Council of nobles think, that we must rest for bit. Well fine by us:

    Parthian provinces started to recover:

    Maybe this annoying country should be our next target??:

    Construction went as planed:


    And this is map in the end of the year:

    1.1.5. 461 year of rest.

    With enemies defeated we must replenish our manpower and strengthen our economy.

    Muses from now and on will be our only god:

    Brother want to be better then his brother:

    Some temples where built:


    And some irrigations as well where built:


    And last but not least forum where built too:

    People in Upper Margiana finally understand how powerful is god Muses:

    In some other province assimilation took all local barbarians:

    So what can do ruler in times of peace? Stupid question isn't it?:

    Of coarse everyone cant be happy. Some Parthian rebels took they chances..:


    Our ruler wanted his legacy to be even more magnificent so he decided to rebuild Tower of Babel:


    Construction works continued as planed:

    Well nothing special happened in this year anyway.

    I hate to keep bringing bad news as the AAR is interesting to follow, but ~40 screenshots in three posts within 44 minutes isn't following the rules, it's circumventing them. Do not post more than 20 screenshot in an hour in the future.

    1.1.7. 463 year of peace.

    Third year of peace in Seleucids Realms.

    Some people get strange if peace last too long..:

    I heard you like Muses??:

    Some parthian rebels are messing with out peacefull lifes! Their defeat are imminent:


    Another wonder under construction:


    Forum was built in Corduene:

    Some people likes to make demands to our great ruler. Good luck with that...:

    For archons peace time wasn't time for rest:

    Again Parthians have rebelled against our divine rule. Forces to destroy this incursion must be deployed at once:

    Another archon built forum in Artashat:

    Even in such a peaceful times some reforms are made, like open courts:

    Reconstruction of Citadel of Ecbatana started:


    Some people gained wealth not only to themselves but for they country too:

    Still people must be prepared for future conquests:

    Last important event in this year was defeat of Parthian rebels:

    Nice AAR
    The Eternal State - a DH-KR Ottoman AAR - Dropped due to health reasons

    Struggle for the Mediterranean - a BOR Punic War MP AAR
    - Dropped due to AGEOD leaving Paradox

    One of these days I will actually finish an AAR
