Great updates! Nice mix of gameplay, history and story. Keep going!
The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.
Thanks!Great updates! Nice mix of gameplay, history and story. Keep going!
I should have seen it coming, after all, but they no longer had the Destroy Carthage mission so I figured they would leave it alone. Never understimate how opportunistic the AI can get. Fortunately, there is nothing like a war against the Romans to get Carthage into last stand mode. They might not like the position they ended up piggybacking to since they didn't gain much and now their borders are getting quite interesting.Ha, Rome is looking to piggyback on your success in the war! Better hope you can wrap it up quick before they can get too many gains.
Are you planning to replace the historical Roman Empire with a Celtiberian one?
That was what I was hoping too, but what happened is even more awesome! They are right now trying to invade the Dalmatians and failing horribly at it. Their manpower dropped to 0, they got some provinces captured and a rebellion in central Italy ended up with a province defecting to the senones! I tried to see what was happening with a boat, and saw an army of 40k Romans defeated by one of 17k Dalmatians. They will of course win the war eventually but getting this weak when you border almost every other big power in existence can get a bit dangerous. :happy:Here's to hoping that the African province the Romans won will keep them bogged down in meaningless wars in Africa!
Thanks!Sweet AAR, it is interesting to see how Rome plays. Also, nce narrative style!
Civilization per se is not going too badly. The capital is at 60.0, which is enough to reform into a kingdom. The problem is that federal kingdom (the only kind I can opt to from tribal confederation) isn't really a good system for warring since you don't get a military idea slot (goodbye to professional soldiers), lose the tribal laws (goodbye to retreat is dishonor) and, since one of the first things you need to do is getting your citizenship class going, you need to use your civic idea slot for that (goodbye to defensive). I could go from kingdom to empire almost immediately, but I don't like that option from a storytelling point of view. That's why I need to deal with Rome first.How's your civilization progress going? I have to imagine you're pretty close.
A very interesting AAR you have here! I'll endeavour to continue reading and follow as best as I can.
These are some high praises. I hope you continue to enjoy the AARIndeed, it got me into EU:Rome again c:
Though I hope the epigoni mod comes with a new patch soon.
They probably received a call to arms from them, or a casus belli against me at the very least. As you guessed, they were in condition to fight a big war at that point, with what was left of their forces tied up in the east. I'm sure they were not happy at all about me easily gaining a foothold in Central Italy.So were the Romans not obligated to defend their tributary? Or did they refuse due to their terrible progress in the Illyrian War?
Thanks!A very interesting AAR, keep it up!
I stand in the shoulders of giants. The Senones stopped Roman advance for some long decades, then the Gallic alliance made them turn to the Balkans and the Dalmatians slaughtered their armies. And yet, winning this war still required of every single resource I had at my disposal, depleted my manpower, mercenary population and gold reserves and almost costed me Africa.Defeating Rome in such an emphatic fashion? Well, this is nothing if not impressive.
Hat off to you. I'm yet to play the game, but, from at least an historical point of view, you've done very well. Looking forward to more triumphs.
Not the weirdest thing that will happen in the AAR. Some power in the east is trying to outdo me in craziness, I'll cover them soon enough.Am I the only one who thinks it's a little funny to see the Celtiberians conquering the Romans? Anyways, good job!
