So for my first turn, I begin by building a few buildings- on this limited a budget, we can't get much done fast.

Looking around us, our logical enemies are the Thracians to the south- they aren't very strong, and are on the path to taking Greece- so I sent my spy to take a look at them. Back at home, we're already getting bandit troubles, but I decide to wait a turn to deal with them when I have some more troops. Ending the turn, we're still in the black.

However, now we can get some barbarian cavalry, and 1 experienced barbarian cavalry at that- I know Scythia is known for its horse archers, but some real cavalry can't hurt. Meanwhile, I take on the bandits out near our other city- it's an army of three archers. Against most bandits, I'd probably stand off with the horse archers, but since they are archers as well, I just go ahead and charge!



That easily finishes them off, without any losses.

For the next turn, I start off by besieging the Thracians- it's about time we got this show on the road. I build two rams for the archers to man- we're probably going to need some other infantry pretty soon. Either that or a better spy. Even with declaring war on the Thracians, we still end up in the black.

The rams are built, but a second Thracian army is coming north to fight as well. So it's time to take the city!

I array our forces before the gate, with the rams to either side- with only 4 enemy units, I figure we can storm the gate pretty easily once we're inside. While their militia cavalry have a little missile duel with our horse archers and manage to kill a few, it's a fight they quickly lose. Then it's time to advance into the city and deal with the two units of general's bodyguard and the peltast in the main square. Figuring that the best method is a coup de main, I just send all of our cavalry up the main street and charge their weak Greek generals head-on.



They break, and our horde of cavalry sweeps into the main square and to victory!



We take a few loses, but pretty reasonable considering their two family members lost. That leaves us with just the small second army to the south, but I decide to ignore it for a turn and see what happens.

As it turns out, the Thracians decide to ask for a ceasefire, and are willing to pay me for the privilege! That little transaction, along with taking their city puts us firmly in the black for the end of the turn.

As things stand, we've taken one city, don't have any current enemies, and have a nice budget to work with.



Now, on to the leadership of Hannibal!

Excellent work General! Now that we have a full treasury, we can develop a stronger economy.

I think we should also capture Chersonesus to create a strong trading presence in the Black Sea...

We do already have 3 ports on the Black Sea- 2 actually built right now- but owning Chersonesus certainly wouldn't hurt.

I begin my reign, and see the great gains General Sajaru had made during his own.


Taking into consideration other factors, occurrences and conquests that will no doubt be made, I lay down a plan for the duration of my reign. The main emphasis for expansion will be into Macedonia then Greece. These are rich lands - rich in people, and resources. If we secure those we will limit the expansion of the so-called 'civilised' peoples and gain a tremendous amount of wealth in the process. Even their legions will be no match to our horsemen. Off we go.


---------------------------------------------

I begin the construction of a couple of structures over here and in Tanais, consuming about 2,000 denarii. Not much, considering the fortunes we will get from these economic buildings.



Liapos does not have much to report from Thracia, only a single force is patrolling the Thracian countryside. Now would be a good time to strike.



We initiate the retraining process of a couple Scythian Horse Archer bands, they will need the improvement on the field of battle.



Other than training two new Horsemen units at Getae, I do not have much else to do, so I end turn.


---------------------------------------------


Liapos manages to uncover very useful information. It seems the Thracians are sending their forces out into Dacian territory, and out of their utter foolishness, have forgotten us, those whom they have fought only a few months ago. I intend to capitalize on this situation, and plan on sending our faction leader along with a sizable force.



Sarmatae appears to be on the verge of rebellion, so the governor starts constructing a shrine to Papay, hoping to please the mighty gods.



For some reason I feel those two are up to something, so I will leave a force here to defend our lands until Zipoetes wipes out the Thracian fools.



Zipoetes leads his men to a single turn's distance away from the Thracian capital. It shall not be long before these pathetic people perish off the face of this earth.



I move Liapos out of Tylis, to prevent detection, furthering our chance of seizing Tylis.


---------------------------------------------

Now, Liapos has infiltrated the city once again, and there is a small chance that if Zipoetes besieges it, that he will open the gates. Let us hope the odds are in our favor.





The gods favor us! We assault Tylis!



Our first step towards glory started in Campus Getae, and now we shall continue sweeping across the land, like an unstoppable tide. The battle begins.



Wood or stone - these walls will not stop us.



The foolish Thracians place a skirmisher group at what used to be a gate of theirs.


They flee like ants than face their death like true men! As their honor was lost, their lives will be too.


The skirmishers are destroyed, and the gates are breached.





The enemy general flees. But not before he takes some of our men's lives with him.



Victory! But our victory is not complete before the enemy is obliterated.



Thrace, is no more.





We gain a load of money by exterminating the settlement. Our other settlements are not large enough to absorb a large influx of slaves.



I offer trade rights to the Armenians in exchange for a small tribute, and they accept.



Liapos reports no military presence around Tylis, except for the rebel family members whom Zipoetes cannot slay for his men are exhausted.



---------------------------------------------

The Parthians offer trade rights and their map information, we accept.





The Macedons violate our territory, but I send Liapos forth into Macedonian territory, he discovers another larger Macedon force nearby, but is not large enough to pose a threat. We will let them be for a while, perhaps they will deal with the rebels for us.



The rebels to the Dacian side are obliterated, and we retake our watchtower.


---------------------------------------------

The Macedons offer us trade rights and map information. We accept.




We attack the rebel general Sautes. His force is made up of peltasts and skirmish cavalry. An easy task for our horsearchers.



With minimal casualties, we remove most of the rebel forces on our land.




Not much left to do, I end turn.



---------------------------------------------

This man thinks he is worthy of royal blood. He lacks in other important areas, and is 29, but I think he will be a fine addition to our family.



At the moment our financial status is excellent. The construction of economic buildings is underway in most of our settlements, and we are gaining almost 5000 denarii per turn. Byzantium is also within striking distance of Zipoetes' army, and it's conquest could grant us access to gold-rich areas.



---------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------


I leave the scepter with the mighty Awesome Eagle. May the gods be in our favor!

Well done. The pesky Thracians reduced to cleaning feces from the hooves of our horses, and a handful of nations offering us gold and maps. I also noticed that we are set for continued expansion of the steppe Lords into the lands of the Hellenes.

Good. I like olives.

Well led and well-reported, Hannibal.

Sorry for triple post, but here is my reign:

Turn 1- Winter 265 BC

Campus Sarmatae can be expanded so a Warlords hold is constructed, and a unit of peasants is recruited



In Tanais, some peasants are recruited to watch the town, and Belniari is sent on a scouting mission to construct watchtowers and pay informants to watch the countryside from bandits


In campus Scythii, a market is ordered to boost our income. Palacus is also sent on a mission to explore the countryside.


Sure enough he finds more bandits. So reinforcements are sent to quell the unruly peasants and battle is commenced.


They are crushed


Palacus has the makings of a fine commander



Rebels near Campus Scythii are also dealt with, at no casualties to our men. Unfortunately no Man of the Hour though.


Zipoetes builds a watchtower then moves and besieges Byzantium where two rams are built and some Thracian mercenaries are hired to push them. The Garrison of Byzantium is weak and should crumble under an assault.

The turn is completed.

Turn 2- Summer 264BC


We have a new General, Ziaelas. Although only 16, this man will come in useful and is sent Westward along with Partatua.


Campus Alanni is ready for expansion and a Warlords hold is ordered.



An assault on Byzantium is ordered.


It is successful and the enemy is crushed. Our casualties came from the mercs.


The population is enslaved.


Trade rights, map information for map information are asked of the people Pontus.


They are accepted.

The turn is completed

Turn 3- Winter 264BC


While building watchtowers, Zipoetes is ambushed. Battle is commenced.


They are crushed and learn of justice.


Partatua encounters another rebel army.


They are also crushed.

After some building, watch tower erection and recruitment, my turn ends.


Germania offers trade rights and map information


I accept

Turn 4- Summer 264BC


Another rebel army is spotted near Campus Alanni. Elder Partatua is sent to destroy them.


They follow their cousin’s fate


Besides more building and recruiting, the turn is uneventful.

Turn 5- Winter 263BC


We are greeted with a suitable husband. He is young and military talented. We shall accept.


Palacus is to be the leader of our invasion of Greece, and is sent towards Macedonia to await reinforcements and an suitable opportunity to strike.


Meanwhile, other Palacus is sent with a expeditionary force towards Dacia. Looks like we have many same named generals. He will await however, scouting reports on the Dacian defences and numbers. By annexing the province of Dacia, we will be securing our boarder.


Belnirari and his army near on the Crimea. By securing this province our underbelly will be secured and dominance over the black sea that little bit closer.

I end the turn.

Turn 6- Summer 262BC


I offer the selucids trade rights, map information in return for map information.


They accept.


Belniari lays eyes on the Chersonesos. It seems lightly defended, but out of movement he has to wait.

I end the turn.

Turn 7- Winter 262BC


Belniari besieges Chersonesos, but with infantry and no mercs available, we will have to wait the 4 turns to starve out the enemy.




Palacus begins his invasion of Dacia by attacking some Dacian field armies.


We crush some, but the rest retreat before engaging our army, the cowards….


The Dacian field army retreats to Porrolissum and hides. Palacus pursues but Is unable to commence a siege.


Meanwhile, in Macedonia, Southern Palacus is almost ready to begin a siege of Bylazora, but is waiting on reinforcements to commence his attack in later in the year.







So this is how I leave our nation to the next commander. Our finances have lessened due to empire wide building and watchtower construction, but our armies have never been larger, and are on the cusp of taking or besieging 3 settlements. Some of our generals are spread building watchtowers and should soon return to more fulfilling duties. It shall be up to the next leader of our nation to win more glory!

And we're back:

We start out with several sieges underway: Porrolissum, Chersonesos, and an army outside Bylazora.

At Porrolissum, we're waiting for some infantry to push the rams before we assault. Outside of Bylazora, there's a second Macedonian army, so instead of trying to do a siege battle, I opt to attack the army outside and draw both armies into a field battle, since the odds are fairly good:


We win with moderate losses:


However, some of them get away, so we have to put the city under siege again. Throughout this time, we're doing quite well money-wise.

Up at Porrolissum, we're fighting a pretty decent Dacian garrison, and the odds are only slightly in our favor. The battle starts well, with our archers cutting down the enemy:


But we end up losing quite a few troops, including our general:


Down at Bylazora, we're ready to take on the survivors. Since they just have a few cavalry units and some archers, I charge all of our cavalry in and overwhelm them with sheer force of numbers:



During the next turn, the Seleucids want an alliance, which I grant, and we take Chersonesos. Our capital city has expanded, so I build the necessary buildings to take it to the next level- pretty soon we'll have some really good cavalry.

Meanwhile, down in Greece, the Macedonians are gathering their forces, but haven't made a move yet. Our main army has retrained in Bylazora and is ready to move on to the next target.

However, we need to deal with the Dacians first. Sallying forth from our city, the odds are against us, but we win anyway:


At the end of my reign, we're building a fancy stables in our capital city and a grove to make some head hunting maidens in the city to the south. Down in Greece, since the Macedonians have moved away from their city, I've put it under siege:


Up north, we're preparing to engage another army from the Dacians with a pair of leaders of our own:

And on the steppes, we have some bandit trouble to sort out.

And my reign begins.


-----------------


There being nothing else to do, I charge the rebels occupying one of our watchtowers.




The cowards flee before the battle even begins, and place themselves further away from us. But they fail to realize
the might of Scythia is above all things.



A heroic victory.



Trade rights were offered to the Greeks. They accept.





It seems to be that the Brutii have already taken control of Thermon. We must make haste, so that we still have a chance to take Greece. And Terikel getting his olives, of course, that being the greater goal



I end turn.

-----------------

Turn 2



The Macedons, choosing not to have a go at Byzantium, reroute their army and attack the forces of Palacus that are besieging Thessalonica. Although they are numerous and are worthy opponents, we have proven ourselves earlier, and have proven why Scythians are superior to these heathen.




The battle begins.




The main force is annihilated and its remnants routed, but the reinforcements are causing quite a problem, there is a lack of coherence in the structure of our army, everything is chaotic.




An enemy general falls. The faction leader will follow next.




Amazingly, our barbarian cavalry alone deals with the Macedonian King's bodyguards.



Ha! The sight of our mercenaries made these despicable creatures flee!



Victory!



Even though we annihilated as many enemies as our own numbers are, no heroic victory. But, it was a great victory. A victory worthy only of Scythian prowess and valor.



The Dacians offer us a ceasefire. They think they are of equal military stature, but they are not. We demand a large payment for the same.



We demand a 15000 denarii tribute, but they counter-offer with a 1000! Idiots. They will pay nonetheless. We reject. (lost the screenie for this one)


Our spies spot a full stack (!) Macedonian army near Thessalonica. The Macedon King has somehow managed to return to the besieged city, so we will annihilate him, hopefully no other family member thrives and we can finally end this conflict.




Thessalonica is ours.




We can recruit Noble Horsearchers!



Apparently the Germanics have quite a force in Vicus Venedae. I think they are going to be a major source of trouble for us in a couple of decades.



END TURN


-----------------

Turn 3



The Egyptians offer us trade rights, we accept.



-----------------


The Dacians attack the army of Zipoetes that was besieging Campus Iazyges, the Dacian capital. Our horsearcher army will utterly annihilate their filthy kind from this world.




The foolish enemy approaches.



After our men cleverly divide the enemy army, their general is attacked and slain, and the main force is either dead or scattered around the field of battle.



The other general is no more.



The day is ours!



-----------------


The Macedonian full stack has vanished, and might have been sent to fight the Brutii. Just to make sure, we send Liapos forth to remove the abnormal fog covering these lands.




Ah, it is still there. If our invasion plans are to go smoothly, we need to get rid of it.




More bad news. Turns out the Brutii are the Macedonians' allies, not their enemies. This means we must attack, regardless of the size of the enemy's forces.



The Greeks have lost Sparta, and are now confined to Rhodes.



We besiege the Dacian capital.



We offer the Gauls trade rights. They accept.




END TURN

-----------------

Turn 4




The Dacian faction leader attacks Zipoetes' forces, and the battle begins.



-----------------


The enemy king is slain, and so is his army. The reinforcements are now shaken by the demise of their leader.



The day is once again ours!



-----------------



Campus Iazyges is exterminated, to show the peoples of the world
what fate awaits them.



Palacus takes an all-horsemen army and attacks the Macedon army earlier mentioned. Already our mens hearts are filled with uncertainty, but if the gods watch over us, what is there to fear?



-----------------


Before our men clash with theirs, they begin to flee, leaving behind a few loyal dogs to fend us off for a period of time. What cowardice.



Ha! Despite being numerically superior, the Macedons lost half their force due to this strategic blunder. It can only be the doing of the gods themselves!



-----------------


There being nothing else to do, I end turn.



-----------------


Turn 5


We offer the Britons trade rights, they accept.





We offer the Julii trade rights, and they accept.



We are the most advanced faction in the world!



Madyes discovers that the Dacians have few warriors left to protect what is left of their kingdom. Our faction leader is to be sent to rid us of these disgusting folk once and for all.



Zipoetes decides to attack the Dacian faction heir Decebalus who, in his infinite wisdom, ventured out into our lands with no accompanying force whatsoever. He deserves what is coming.




Well, Decebalus is brave. He'd rather die than turn his back onto our arrows and run. Unfortunately for him, bravery is the attribute of the foolish, not the calculating.



Decebalus has been slain.




Palacus besieges Larissa with his horse army and begins construction of rams, while infantry are sent from Thessalonica to merge with Palacus' forces.



The Brutii seem to be sending a sizable force towards our lands. I hope the next Overlord in line keeps an eye on the pesky Romans.



END TURN

This was a great term of service, Lord Hannibal! Already envoys bearing olive branches have been visiting our realm, vying against each other to be the provider of such delicacies to our court.

So far the taste test prefers the northern olvies of Thessaloniki to those of highland Larissa, but that is a matter of taste and freshness. I am quite sure the larger olives of Attica and Laeconia will appeal even better to the palate.

As to teaching the once-formidable Dacians that their time has past and the Age of the Horse Warrior is approaching- well done! And to following warlords- those warriors in the lands of the former Dacians are poised to strike deep into the dark forests of Germania should those fur-wearing fools decide to pillage our more-northerly regions...

I am pleased with this report. Please, lords of the Steppes, do continue.

Unfortunately not yet. RL has been hectic and I was only able to update that because I got 5 minutes to copy and pasta it from my note pad. However- I have a free rafter noon tomorrow so I will play it then and update Tuesday.

I managed to find the time to play an action packed 3 turns. So here they are:


Our forces besieging Larissa are sallied upon by the dual armies of Macedon. Hopefully I will be able to work some magic..




The battle began with domination by our army, with our archers massacring their pikemen and picking off their cavalry. However, trouble started when the enemy reinforcement army with many units of Light Lancers entered the fray. Spread out and disorganised, some of our troops proved to be easy pickings. However, Palacus rallied his men and reinforced the front line- however, not before many casualties were taken. Among the dead were found a entire unit of Scythian Noble Archers- who lived up to their name and inflicted upon the enemies a kill ratio of 3-1.


However, we did manage to eliminate the entire garrison and reinforcing army, meaning Larissa is now ours!!


256 BC- Winter


We have a candidate for adoption. He will make a good General and is accepted.


Oh No! The plague has come to Macedonia. Maybe we can implant the Romans with this disease to slow their roll..


Campus Alanni has grown yet again.


Our army in Larissa is depleted, and will need to be retrained.


Liapos- our spy is moved to check the defences of Athens and Corinth. They are lightly defended, but our army will need to be expanded and retrained if we are to go on the offensive any time soon.


An army of the Brutii is bribed to disband.


Partatua leaves Porrolissum and goes on a mission to build some watchtowers.


Madyes enters Aquincum, and sees that it is largely undefended.



Zipoetes is ordered onto the attack, and can assault now with the help of our spy.




AQUINCUM IS OURS!


Belnirari is ordered out of Chersonesos and to Greece. He shall pick up troops and boats along the way.


Troops from Tylis engage some rebels.


They are eliminated mercilessly


We have a Man of the Hour. I was hoping for this. I accept.


Aram is sent to reinforce our armies in Greece.


I end the turn

255 BC- Summer


We have a new General


The plague has moved to Larissa as well. That isn’t good!


Prusias, a plague bearer nears his Brutii target


Our fleet arrives in Campus Getae to collect some reinforcements.


Aram moves closer to Greece.


Our new general Ara is moved into Dacia- He will move to replace the aging Zipoetes who is now 65.

I end the turn

255BC- Winter


Plague bearer Liapos is moved into Athens- infecting it with the plague.

In the west, Prusias is moved into Apollonia and infects the town.


Reinforced by troops from northern Thrace, and boats as well- the fleet moves south again.



Palacus is moved out of Larissa to confront a Macedonian army.


It was a clear victory, with many enemy killed for little loss


Palacus is moved back to Larissa to retrain and build more forces, as he lacks the provisions to take over Athens and hold back the Brutii.


A small Brutii force is in Macedonia. I really don’t want to go to war with the Brutii yet- we need more troops!


A Parthian army is close to entering our territory


An enemy rebel army is destroyed at no loss to ourselves.


A small Dacian army is engaged by a unit of Horse archers.

It is a victory (accidentally misplaced the photo)


Madyes is moved north, in order to scout the possessions of the Dacians


This is the situation I leave to the next commander. Unfortunately time constraints left me with only 3 turns to play, but I did manage to capture 2 cities, and reinforcements are on the way to Greece to assist with the growing Brutii threat and capture the rest of the olive eaters.

Save will be sent on tonight.

An excellent tenure nonetheless AE. We look to be in fairly good shape, although the incursions by the Brutii are worrisome; however, if we can wipe out the Macedonians and turn to take on the Romans next, they might be manageable; at any rate, Romans are on the whole easier to take down than pikemen.

Ach, sickness and plague. They make these old bones brittle. Luckily, I hear olive oil is good for health and suppleness.

Dacia has been taught respect for our horsemen, and it appears Brutus is on the short list for being taught this as well. Poor Brutus, and him with but hastati adn those before the coming of the Great Marry Us.

Well done, Awesome Eagle!

Sorry about the delay, but here's the update:

I start out by declaring war on the Brutii; they've encroached on our territory long enough. Running them down, we wipe out the closest army with ease. Up north, Parthia has an army close to our territory, but they're not brave enough to attack. However, we have plenty of bandits in our territory and they aren't exactly easy to kill.

Down in Greece, the Brutii are moving troops into position:



To the west, our spy has found a Dacian town. Our money situation is rather good, making several thousand denarii per turn.

While the plague has run its course in Larissa, the Macedonians put a spy into our town with the plague, infecting it again. We have a new family member, Rusa, come of age in our capital. Meanwhile, at Porrolissum, we have another group of bandits to take out.

The next turn, the Germans decide to put our capital under siege. Even so, our money situation is looking good. Down at Larissa, the Brutii are back for round two, and we take them down handily:



Back at the capital, we send the Germans off:



However, they're sending more armies our direction:



Our money situation is good, but the Brutii are back again, and we slaughter them as well:



Down in Greece, the Macedonians are massing, to the north, the Germans are on the move, and the Brutii are gathering their forces:

My people never were smart enough to leave well enough alone. Oh well, thou has thrashed them thoroughly. Maybe this time we will learn, but I doubt it. You will need to drive deep into the dark forests and make them Scythian for my people to learn- and for us to be able to concentrate on gaining those olives. Luckily, a small army of horse-archers and a few other bowbenders, capped by some heavy cavalry, should be enough to hound those back into the woods.

Brutus offers more of a problem, for his wimpy hastati and weak principes will soon turn to tough legionaries backed with Archer Auxilia, which can outrange and slaughter our beloved horse archers. Thus this must become our focus until such a time as we breed Noble Archers like flies upon droppings.

Well done, General Sajaru!

Fear not, for I have done miraculously well. There were only two questions I could not complete because of lack of time.

And just to clarify, I wasn't playing while studying. As I've told GS in an email, I was using the free time I had from mid-February to play the Swap save, and so, everything is ready

I'll upload the pics later today.

Apologies for the late arrival, but here it is.

---------------------

TURN 1

_____________________

I gaze upon the wonders our armies have done, the peoples whom they have vanquished, all at the hands of the previous overlords. Excellent.



I start with sending our spies to carefully monitor the Macedonian commander of this massive army, Philip of Agrigentum, and his behavior. What I find is less than satisfactory, it is as if the Macedons no longer have good commanders for their forces! A feeble commander will always drag his army down along with him, so, we move on a little bit west to Brutii lands.



Things do not look good. The Brutii have fielded several armies around the whole area. Our objective for now, on this front, is to capture Athens with either of the forces at Larissa, and crush any significant Macedon presence in the region. The other force at Larissa will stay and make sure the Brutii do not attack us in the rear, till Athens is ours.



The plan's commencement is marked by an attack on Macedonian forces near Athens.



Buuuut our army runs out of MPs. However, even with this wait, our position is that of strength.


I turn my attention towards Dacia, and the Germanic armies present there.


We send out a very small force of horsearchers to harass an enemy force not far from the capital of Tribus Iazyges. The odds for victory are greatly against us, but that is not what we are aiming for.



The enemy general is dead.



After the enemy general was slain, and our men running out of arrows, I give the order to withdraw. A defeat on paper, but a victory in reality.





I send a combined force to battle this Germanic army that is only a day away from Porrolissum.



Despite a few casualties, because of the bloody stupid AI, t'was a victory.



There being nothing to do, I end turn.




TURN 2


lolwut



Ah, as expected, the enemy has attacked us near Athens. The battle has begun!



I don't feel very confident of this whole thing, so I order our infantry to withdraw.



The enemy's cavalry routs!



Our arrows have slain the enemy general.



The enemy have been crushed!



Belnirari's army has been brought to plug this gap, while Palacus besieges Athens.



I send Zipoetes to take Segestica, for a classical anvil and hammer tactic. With the Macedons reduced to an insignificant rabble of spear-throwers. An incursion into Dacia would be a bad move at this point, we would be incapable of replenishing lost forces in case of an encounter with Germania, and the Romans have enough men to go into our lands.




I send a small force to wipe out the remnants of the Germanics in Scythia.



Another force is sent to expel the other Germanic army in Tribus Iazyges.

The enemy have been crushed!!!



END TURN


Turn 3!


A foolish move by the Macedons. They have sent what was left of the former force against us once again, and the reinforcements will be obliterated if they lose their battle.




A 'clear' victory.



The Brutii have decided to advance into our land. We have decided to give them a beating.



Yet another crushing victory!!



We sent Belnirari's force to destroy some of the Brutii's armies, and we have won a crushing victory!!



END REIGN


--------------------------------------------------------


It's here. I'm afraid it was not long as I had wanted it to be, but regardless, the other warlords will wipe the floor with the Romans.

I also want to be taken out of the Supreme Commander list. Unfortunately, 12th grade is a hassle and I need to study every minute of the day if I want to get at least 95%+ in the average. I will also be taking a long time off the forums, I won't be actively participating in anything (Like the map game that we might do) but I'll still go on from time to time. I wish thee luck, noble warlords. Farewell.
