  • Indeed, all Scouts out!

    Let us reconoiter our approach.

    Crabbus, you are free to begin your southern 'excursions' as you please...

    Send for reinforcements should you need them!

    ALL... stay in contact with each other, here... plan & coordinate!

    Arses the Scythian... you need some Cav... take XXIV-V!

    • Has Publius Scaurus “the Scar” gotten a force?

      If so, I guess we can begin...

      All I need to know now is where the different troops and their officers will be positioned on the map (or OFF the map ). Once this has been done, I will give you a short description of what the Romans can "see"...then the orders can be given and the first Roman movements will be made !!!
      To this, I will react according to MY (Parthian) predetermined moves...

      And I have some nice "suprises" for you Romans

      • The order of the day...

        March on Babylon, leave the Parthian babies to their mothers skirts!

        • With my quality of 1 am I allowed to make reasonable suggestions for the order of march, or since my unit is more mobile than most, take the extra time saved getting to an objective to go sightseeing (like Seleucis).

            Troops with a quality of 1 are not so good, in fact they are very poorly disciplined and loot and plunder wherever and whenever they can. They have the tendency to ignore orders or to mutiny if they do not get paid enough or flee the field of battle if there is but the least of a chance that defeat might occur...

            It is better to have a score of 6 on all the qualities !!!

            • I plan to advance on the Oases, first Ara, and then Charax.
              Take them at night, and then advance to the Watch Tower on Mt Tiglaran.
              I feel night marches will reduce our visibility.

              • I believe my unit, with it's veteran soldiers and 6 quality, should hold the center of our approach!

                          Bah, all they do is bitch and moan. Besides, Rome pays all the bills.

                          Anyhow......it is already too late, the mice and rats have been smuggled in and released.

                          Oh, by the way..............
                          ROMAN SOLDIERS, DO NOT CONSUME ANY WATER AND FOOD THAT YOU MAY COME ACROSS IN THE THE CITY. KEEP YOUR HORSES AWAY FROM THE WATER TROUGHS AND FEED BINS. DO NOT GO INSIDE TEMPLES, AND TRY NOT TO STAND TOO CLOSE TO THE CITY WALLS!
