When civil war erupted in Rome, Quintus Sertorius took the side of his uncle Marius and travelled to the Iberia to secure to loyalty of those provinces but was soon defeated by one of Sulla's legates.
Sertorius fled to Mauretania where he organized an army and defeated many of Sulla's legates there. The news os his success in Africa reached the Iberian tribes who were being attacked by Sulla's legates in the region and an embassy was sent asking him to return to Iberia to lead it's armies against the oppressor.
Sertorius soon desimnarked on Iberia bringing reinforcements from Africa and with the help of the Iberian tribes, took over almost all of the Iberian territories under the senate´s control.
The power of Sertorius, however, is not undisputed. They must deal with the Senate's forces still in the peninsula and at the same time strengthen his dominions if they are to survive if something happens to him. Also, it is not clear what will be course his Iberian allies will take when the Senate's forces are defeated.. they called upon Sertorius to liberate them from one master's yoke, who says they will bow to another?
Only after all this questions are solved the "rebels", as the Senate calls them, can think about higher projects. Will they march upon Rome to deliver justice to those who kicked them out of their homeland made them pariahs? Or a independent roman country in Iberia is enough?
