Save received, just have to move it to my gaming computer.
I hope I'll be able to finish half my turns today.

Time for an update on the first three turns of my command.

Turn 1
I reinforce the army besieging the fort just outside the Vicus Franki with two Gallowglasses and the faction leader stationed in Augusta Treverorum.
I embark one Gallowglass and one chariot unit from Samarobriva and land them behind the Saxon army besieging Londinium.

Turn 2
I attack the fort in a night battle and score a clear victory.
I do some recruitment in all of my settlements and send a diplomat to scout Spain for my next invasion.

Turn 3
I bribe a rebel army near Londinium and add another four units to my army which is ready to attack tne Saxons besieging Londinium. I attack the army in a day battle and score yet another clear victory against the Saxons, who numbered the same number of men.
I besiege and attack Vicus Franki which has been inflitrated by my spy and defeat its garrison of two units (among them the Frankish faction leader) and exterminate.
I move my small Spanish expeditionary force towards the Spanish eastern settlement (name?), which is defended by only three units. The plan is to boost this force's numbers by recruiting some mercenaries and conquer Spain.

Share your opinions

EDIT: Save sent back to Drak. To summarise my eight turns in command of the Celtic armies, the Franks and the Saxons have been destroyed and the following settlements have been captured: Vicus Franki, Vicus Alemanni, Vicus Saxones, Tarraco, Campus Chattii.

None of this would have been achieved without the amazing work of my predecessors. I merely fought the battles. Good luck to the next player

I have, and it has been sent onto Xingjianma.

Well done with those conquests! Just like every game I play as the Goths, the Celts are slowly conquering northern Europe.

Congrats Alex, you were bold indeed (See what I did there :P)

So are the franks and Saxons gone, or have the franks horded? Well done in Spain and defending Londinium

Good Luck Xing !

A pop-up window showed up, saying "Faction destroyed:Franks",so I guess they are gone. But, how come they didn't horde?

You probably wiped out their family, I slaughtered about 4 of them then you killed the leader and heir ...

Hey guys,

I've just now learned that I have to go out of town for a whole week, starting today, so I won't be able to play this turn. I do apologize, and please pass it on for now. I'd be up for my turn once I get back, if possible.

Good luck!

I've now chased up Redvig.

Things be crazy, not to mention that my time spent gaming recently has all been running for Procurator on the Minecraft server I play on.

A very good question. Thank you for prodding me into action.

You should already have the save, since we haven't progressed since your turn. So, in the name of activity, feel free to go again.

Save sent back!

Here is a small but important update of my turns...

TURN 1

I assassinate a Burgundi family member near Campus Chatti. I send my spy eastwards, towards Campus Burgundi. Finally I attack Augusta Vindelicorum with almost all the army in Campus Alemmani. END TURN

Turn 2

I move the Spanish Expeditionary force to Carthego Nova, trying to surprise the defenders. This is going to get ugly...
I assault Augusta Vindelicorum. I score a clear victory and then a message pops up. It was the Victory message. Our efforts have born fruits and the victory conditions achieved.

Final save sent back to Drakontos. What do we do now? Do we continue the swap, or we are finished and choose a new one?
