Thread: newb question

    Default newb question

    How do you pay for expansion and armies? It seems like military upcost is very high, with many factions going into debt on turn 2 and forward.

    One key is to disband your navies, and perhaps some of your starting army (notably Cavalry).

    Many factions that aren't rich or populous to start out with (which would entail Carthage, Ptolemaic Egypt, Romans, and Seleucids, and perhaps Bactrians) will soon plummet financially without some prompt expansion, and judicious use of the starting 5,000 mnai to build roads and other economical upgrades in their starting provinces.

    Barbarian cultures in-particular have a problem it seems, but so do the Hayasadan, and Pontos.

    -U can either build some roads, or troops, or both with the initial 5K. And then kill ur closest adversary, or take rebel towns.
    -OR u can disband ur army and focus on building ups ur econ.

    I usually go with the 1st option.

    Build roads, farms, ports, mines, and traders. Conquer a lot of provinces.
