Does the Senate ever stop giving you missions? I was playing as the Brutii, and the Senate kept on giving me missions until they gave me a gift of 1000 Denarii. After that, they stopped.

If you must break the law, do it to seize power: in all other cases observe it.
Before all else, be armed.
He who wishes to be obeyed must know how to command
It is better to be feared than loved, if you cannot be both.
There is no avoiding war; it can only be postponed to the advantage of others.

Hi Derek

As Brutii I received new missions as soon as I completed a previous one.

As the game went on and the number of Brutii regions went up the popularity with the senate fell. The missions being given became less rewarding and eventualy were of the sort where 'failure meant punishment' rather than 'success meant reward'.

On occasion I had two missions at the same time. The second one was a 'special' and was something like:
- 'get off an allies land' or
- 'go recapture that city you just allowed to rebel'

The real question is how does the SPQR afford that huge military, pay for all the missions and still get extremely rich? When i played as the SPQR I started the game broke and barely able to support a half stack army.

This all happened to me, but it's been quite a few years and no new missions. The Senate is still pleased with me, but the other two roman factions arn't.

They sure get cheap later on in the game. I haven't gotten money for the last dozen missions. The senate is either happy that I've done it or they hold gladiator games in one of my cities...how nice of them :P

lol the senate gave me a mission after i was outlawed: they told me to attack the julii, even tho they were outlawed after me, so it should really have been the other way round, so i would assume they never stop giving you missions until you defeat them.
