Declaration of War!

Post  kingsid987 on Fri Oct 19, 2012 12:58 pm

(Lets get the dice rolling Laughing)

Bardylis has called a declaration of war against the Kingdom of Macedonia. Many months of planing with his advisers for the moment, but they believe their nation is prepared.

Bardylis has called all Illyrian tribes on to the warpath to crush the common foe, and any other nation who has their quarrels with the Macedonians.

(Basically I wanted something to happen, all troops are prepared for an invasion along with other Macedonian hating Illyrian tribes. Could Aggy chose any npc tribes who join?)

OOC: I just realized Sparta wasn't hated by Thebes and Macedon yet in 400 B.C.

Sparta will stand neutral for now.

An admin (Me or Cookie I guess) can use a dice roller to determine how many Illyrian tribes join in. Get a list of potential tribes and we;ll roll, let's say over 55 joins?

(good idea, lets go with that.)

Ardiaei
Dassareti
Enchelei
Grabaei
Labeates
Taulantii
Parthini
Dyestes

All the tribes above have historical border tensions, of which Taulantii were the biggest.

Ardiaei-71
Dassareti-67
Enchelei-7
Grabaei-52
Labeates-90
Taulantii-95
Parthini-12
Dyestes-94

King Bardylis sends out his diplomats and messengers to all Illyrian tribes. Almost immediately, the Taulantii show up outside Bardylis' capital, full army and all. They have brought their own banners, but for this campaign they have chosen their main banner to be Dardania's sigil. Following them were the Dyestes and Labeates who also came in full vigor. The three Chieftains of these tribes pledge full support to King Bardylis.
As the days went by (Full of feasting for the campaign) the Ardiaei and Dassareti finally arrived, with partial armies at the best, messages from their leaders saying they support the Dardanian Kingdom but are not willing to give them the entirety of their army.
After many more days of waiting, the Grabaei show up; a pitiful force if anything else. They bring news that the Pathini refuse to participate while the Enchelei are a Macedonian vassal and have pledged their support to the "Skirt wearing cowards" of Macedon.


The Warcall has gained this much support:

Taulantii/Dyestes/Labeates:
10,000 Q4 Illyrian Warriors
10,000 Q4 Illyrian Skirmishers
3000 Q4 Illyrian Cavalry
1000 Q5 Illyrian Hoplites

Ardiaei/Dassareti:
4000 Q4 Illyrian Warriors
200 Q4 Illyrian Cavalry

Grabaei:
500 Q4 lllyrian Warriors

Bardylis prepared all the men. Plans were simple:
Slash way through territory letting Illyrians ravage any villages they pass till they reach Pella. On arrival they will probably be confronted, they will try to claim any high ground. After main battle if successful Illyrians will lay siege to Pella. If not the Illyrians will try to regroup, if defeat is too bad they will fall back ravaging anything they see in their way.(Their aim is to cause as much damage as possible, if they can not win)



Led under Bardylis, also with advisors Agron and Bato:
20000 Q5 Dardanian Warriors
5000 Q7 Dardanian Heavy Hoplite
5000 Q6 Dardanian Horsemen
2500 Q9 Dardanian Kryekomandantet
14,500 Q4 Illyrian Warriors
10,000 Q4 Illyrian Skirmishers
3200 Q4 Illyrian Cavalry
1000 Q5 Illyrian Hoplites

Macedon : 80

Enchelei: 67

The Illyrians of Enchelei, while sided with their Macedonian sovereign, do not fully support the War against fellow Illyrians. The army is not 100% as a result.
Q4 5000 Illyrian Skirmishers
Q4 3000 Illyrian Warriors
Q4 100 Illyrian Cavalry
(For general knowledge, on both sides Illyrian Warriors are Light Inf, Illyrian Cav are Light Cav, Illyrian Hoplites are obv Hoplites. The rest is obv.)

The King of Macedon, Perdicaas II has rallied his nation against the Illyrian savages. His army consists of professionals as well as levies, the cavalry of Macedon is assembled. He has always brought in a great number of Thracians to aid his defence.

Q7 1500 Elite Phalangites (Spear/Pike)
Q5 5000 Phalangites (Spear/Pike)
Q3 10,000 Levy Hoplites (Hop)
Q5 1500 Lancer Cavalry (Lgt Cav)
Q9 200 Companion Cavalry (Hvy Cav)
Q8 Hypastpists (Hvy Inf)
Q5 Thracian Peltasts (Skirm)

The battle shall commence soon, as the Illyrian horde approaches the green lands of Macedon.

(Let us begin Smile )

The Dardanian warriors followed by the fellow Illyrians had a fierce warcry, the Macedonians could hear the taunts and rants of the enemy. Blood is what they had come for, and Bardylis was ready to crush his old time foes.
