            • Contracts





              1. Cossean Depredations- Deep in the mountains of Persia and Media a pastoral group of tribesmen guard the passes and roads, charging tolls or even going so far as to waylay travelers that go upon the road. Peucestas and Peitho, satraps of Persia and Media respectively, have been busy with the partition and other matters after Alexander’s death and the nobles of the region have seen fit to raise a sum of money to solve the problem themselves. The Cosseans have no permanent abodes and live fully upon their flocks and what they can take from unwary travelers on the road. Only the great Alexander was able to chastise them and force them to in turn pay tribute, but now they have again started to set upon merchants after news of his death.



              Location- Mountains of Persia and Media

              Reward- 300 talents








              2. Piracy in the Black Sea- The Greek merchants of the city state of Sinope in Pontus have grown tired of pirate attacks on their shipping within the Black Sea and seek mercenary help to find the pirate dens and destroy them for good. The citizens of Sinope are a proud breed, they and their fellow Greek colonies in Sinope have avoided passing under the control of Alexander the Great’s empire and have succeeded in maintaining their independence against every threat. They think that perhaps the barbarians in Colchis have seen the wealth of their neighbors and sent pirates to steal it for themselves.



              Location- Pontus

              Reward- 400 talents





              3. Thracian Devastation- The Macedonian satrap of Thrace, Lysimachus, is under attack by numerous different Thracian tribes and the relative lack of soldiers in his province due to his aid to Antipater has forced him to hire mercenaries to check their depredations. Lysimachus seeks veteran mercenaries familiar with wooded areas to protect his borders and perhaps even take the fight to several hostile Thracian tribes that are on his borders.



              Location- Thrace

              Reward- 300 talents




              4. The Lamian War- The climactic end to the Lamian War looks to be drawing nigh. All the players in this conflict look to bolster their forced with mercenaries to gain an edge in the fighting in the days to come.



              Reward-

              Krateros- 400 talents

              Leonnatus- 400 talents

              Antipater- 250 talents

              Leosthenes- 300 talents




              Location- Lamia




              5. Maritime Protection- The merchants of Kyrene are the main distributors of the invaluable silphium, but many recent shipments to Greece have gone missing and the city of Kyrene does not have the men or ships to spare to escort these ships on their own. The merchants of Kyrene have decided to hire guards for their ships, hoping that veteran mercenaries will be able to hold off pirates and allow their cargos to reach Greece unharmed.



              Reward- 450 talents

              Location- Kyrene





              6. The Samnite War- With the defeat of the twin Roman legions, the Samnites realize that Roman revenge will be swift and fierce. A call for mercenaries goes out to bolster a Samnite army being raised this year to blunt the Roman counterattack.



              Reward- 300 talents

              Location- Samnium





              7. Native Rebellions- The natives of Sardinia, ever restless under the yoke of Carthaginian rule, have revolted again from their Punic masters. With no real army of their own to speak of, Carthage is seeking experienced mercenaries to help them retake their colony with the assistance of their navy, and they offer to pay handsomely for it.



              Reward- 600 talents

              Location- Sardinia

              • Aegeus eyes the carthaginian contract with much interest. He seeks to know who else might bid to join his now very heavy battle line troops in subduing the sardinian people......

                • Put me down as interested in the Sardinian Contract as well. Iberians have served with Carthage before. I will consider going in with a partner, but need to see how the contract will be split. My Light and Medium Troops would do well in the Hills of Sardinia. Being close to Spain would allow me to hire Iberian Replacements.

                  The Kyrene job also looks good.

                  • We will accept the piracy in the Black Sea contract. Also we let it be known be known that we are looking for 50 green light spearmen to join us for adventure and profit (25 to recruit, 25 to kit out out of 90 carried over). My men are spending their recent payments quite lavishly while the winter so impressing 50 young lads shouldn’t be hard.

                    • Carefully considering his options during the winter months, Aegeus speaks to his subordinate leaders.

                      Gentlemen, we have a goal. A true goal, a purpose beyond mere silver. To reclaim Neapolis for true Greeks. But to do this, we must do more than just take the city. Contacts can open gates and conspirators can set fire to barracks. But once Rome knows that the city is no longer theirs, they will raise legions and march on it. We must have an army, and an army that can destroy a Roman Army in the field, not just cower behind walls in a siege. And that army, that army costs silver.

                      It seems that the war in Lamia has come to a climax, with many generals marching afield. Leonnatus offers 400 talents to mercenaries who will fight for the old order of Macedon. I have heard of his army, and our well drilled veterans will be a decisively effective force in it. I know of Leonnatus, and he has royal designs, such men are want to bestow many more talents of silver upon those who aid them in achieving their designs. We shall sojourn to Greece, make the silver needed to raise an army, and return to this Italian Penninsula with the forces to not only retake Neapolis, but hold it against Rome, and eventually take the fight to Rome herself.

                      Knowing that his own men are short in cavalry, and that Snowygerry Bolgios is well known for quality horse, Aegeus sends a missive to him to entreat him to partner in this endeavor. Leonnatus' army is likely not to be all hardened veterans like Krateros, but Leo's political plans would make him more likely to raise his bid if a mercenary army arrived with substantial numbers of highly sought after forces that could turn the tide of a battle before his erstwhile ally arrives to 'save' him with an army of hardened Alexandrian veterans.

                        • Aegeus, knowing full well the scope of the mess in Lamia and how Macedonian politics can turn into a multi-sided war, sends a missive to Leonnatus seeking clarification. Aegeus denotes the quality of the forces that he represents, and also notes that he would very likely be bringing a significant force of cavalry with him, all veterans of campaigns against greek style armies. Aegeus frankly notes the situation and that 400 talents is a pretty general sum being offered by more than one general in this war and seeks to know if Leonnatus is truly serious about employing the services of veteran hypaspists and phalangites and cavalry?

                          (Per request of Snowy, sending a couple of missives out to get a better lay of the land).

                            • Leonnatus’ aides send back a message that states that if a force of good veteran cavalry and phalangites were to join him, payment could be increased fittingly.

                              • Could I get some feedback on what the Carthaginians want taken first and what measures we will take with people that surrender? If they don't surrender when we find them we will pillage and loot the place.
