    Default R2 Imperial Edition: and what if I play a long, veeeery long campaign?

    Hi there
    Quick question, maybe some of you have tested it:
    I have an Imperial Edition campaign at turn 30 or so, I am doing pretty well in it, but at the moment I was thinking about *not* playing the objective, *not* winning, and turtling, defending my borders.
    What if I play my campaign for let say 30 or 40 years more, what will happen to Mark Antony as it isnt supposed to die?
    Will I end with 150 years old MA, or is the game scripted to end without possibilities to continue? (though I thought that all TW games give the possibility to continue after the win/loss)
    Thanks for replies!

    I've never gone that far, but what I hear is that you can continue. I believe there is nothing in the win conditions about Anthony having to be alive anyway.

    But yes, you can play after the victory conditions have been achieved.

    Cheers! And thanks for your fast reply, Slaists (once more!) much appreciated.

    So I guess that a 200 years old Mark Antony will haunt my campaign at some point, only thing that may save him will be the release of ATW haha

    I might be wrong, but I've assumed that the "Great Leader" trait, which states that the character cannot be "killed", means that it's impossible for that general (Mark Antony in this case) to be assassinated by agents or political opposition. After all, "cannot be killed" is not quite the same as "cannot die".

    I don't know if the immunity extends to a death in battle...if his army were to be completely isolated and wiped out, unsure what happens to him.

    Even more so, I doubt that the trait protects him from dying of natural causes in old age.

    I have a habit of keeping old save-game files at the point of victory, so have an Octavian and a Lepidus game I could experiment with...maybe I'll test these ideas sometime. Send him alone into an unwinnable battle to see what happens.

    From what I heard, the great leaders cannot die in battle or anything of the sort until they are the last army and settlement left. So to kill Octavian or Pompey you would need to wipe out every one of their towns and armies. Otherwise they will respawn.

    Someone reported their Octavian kick the bucket at the ripe age of 107 or so. His campaign continued. So, the leaders do die of natural causes but linger around for a long time.

    Ok, well that makes sense I suppose. May even occur if the faction is completely destroyed, since factions do reappear; Octavian's Rome seems particularly adept at coming back after getting wiped out.

    Still leaves open the question of whether the game would actually let Octavian/Antony/Lepidus/Pompey live to be 100+ years old....
