    Everyone feel free to weigh in on your contracts? I’ve only had contact with one player so far.

    You suggested I look at Celtic Heavy Infantry and here are some I came up with:

    Solduros (Gallic Noble Infantry)
    Boii Cingeros (Boii Swordsmen)
    Golberi Curoas (North Gallic Swordsmen)
    Neitos, (Gallic Heavy Swordsmen

    These are all well armored and armed, well trained and not impetuous. I prefer an anchor to my line that I can maneuver around.

    Most players seem committed to a particular campaign.
    Feel free to take two to three days. I’ll start moderation on Monday if that works for you.

    Uazali yes, Galatians don’t exist yet. Just hire Celts, same thing basically.

    It’s possible. Those finishing up contracts quickly can likely grab another closeby before the end of the season. Though, depends on the contracts in question.

    Three of those look good! Maybe they will still be there after Crete?

    Non Exclusive Contracts-




    The First Diadochi War-




    With the lines of the first war among the Diadochi being drawn, mercenaries were in great demand in the East. Leonnatus issued a call for any mercenaries looking for work to attend him in his capital in Pella and Perdiccas also sent word to various mercenaries that any who wished to work could find a new paymaster in his capital in Babylon. Another major player, Ptolemy, also uses his massive resources to attract mercenaries to Egypt.







    Leonnatus- Leonnatus is looking to hire mercenaries for a variety of purposes. He’s seeking warriors willing to guard his borders against Thracians in the North as well as other mercenaries to help with the Greek surrender in the South. Lastly, he’s sending a force to secure new territories in Asia Minor.




    Pay- 500 talents to fight in the North, 300 to go to Asia Minor, and 250 to police the Greeks.







    Perdiccas- Perdiccas is building an invasion army and is willing to use some of the massive fortune Alexander acquired in his Eastern campaigns. Word of the mountains of silver and gold being offered in exchange for military service draws thousands to Babylon to assemble into a grand army.




    Pay-650 talents







    Ptolemy- Ptolemy is seeking a group of mercenaries for an, interesting secret project and he is willing to pay handsomely for it. His agents are extremely secretive about the mission and few are offered the contract.




    Pay- 750 talents










    Colchian Retribution-







    Colchis, angered by the mercenaries’ attack on her borders at the behest of Sinope, seeks to hire a force to exact revenge against the high handed Greek merchants. A company is sought that is able and willing to lay waste to Sinope’s merchant marine and territories.




    Pay- 400 talents













    Intervention in Iberia-




    The Punic city of Gades in Iberia has recently been beset by numerous attacks upon her people and possessions in the countryside. The usually peaceful peoples surrounding the city’s territory have disappeared and have been replaced by a hostile entity that leaves little room for the people of Gades to make their living. The elders of the city seek a company willing to investigate the matter and restore peace and balance to their territories.







    Pay- 500 talents

    Well there are Celts in Italy too - it's not likely that Bolgios will march his men and horse from Greece to Italy, if such a "strategic" move were to be done it would be a small party of nobles, their family and retinue travelling by ship, then recruit locally.

    But more than likely the upcoming war among the Greeks will provide all the opportunities we need, that's the reason I set up in Athens in the first place 3 seasons ago.

    Italy is a backwater in this timeframe, Brennus plundered Rome at the start of the century and that is the last we will hear from those upstarts - Greece is the center of the world
    Snowy is correct. Greece and Asia are where the superpowers are about to come to blows, Italy is currently a backwater, though an eventful one at that.

    However, with the events that have happened. The Lamian War is over. Leonnatus has taken over Macedonia and Greece, but the First Diadochi War is just about to begin.

    Snowy, I’ll generate a list of contracts for you to take a look at.

    If they have no missile troops, I can spare them a few. Ten per Trieme should not over load them. They can help row.
