Athens Breaks the Treaty

Post  cooki3 on Sat Oct 20, 2012 1:19 pm

The Peloponnese War ended four years ago, but Athens has broken the treaty.

Facing starvation and disease from the prolonged siege, Athens surrendered in 404 BC, and its allies soon surrendered as well. The democrats at Samos, loyal to the bitter last, held on slightly longer, and were allowed to flee with their lives. The surrender stripped Athens of its walls, its fleet, and all of its overseas possessions. Corinth and Thebes demanded that Athens should be destroyed and all its citizens should be enslaved. However, the Spartans announced their refusal to destroy a city that had done a good service at a time of greatest danger to Greece, and took Athens into their own system. Athens was "to have the same friends and enemies" as Sparta.

However, For a short period of time, the oligarchs were overthrown and a democracy was restored by Thrasybulus in 403 BC.

We will declare war on Athens if they do not let Spartan troops enter and occupy the city at once. We wish for any Greeks before that aided us to join in the fighting.

The Free People's discourage warfare amongst Greeks, especially against a great state such as Athens.

Athenian Support: 5
Spartan Support: -5

Greek squabbles, the Dardanians simply chuckle. They hope there is much bloodshed.

Judah doesn't care, they hope that whoever wins they'll be kind to any Jews living in Greece.

A diplomat accompanied by a few Spartiate hoplites approach the Athens. The city was not as rich and beautiful as the diplomat once remembered, but that was long before the Peloponnese War. Athens lost their walls, fleet, and colonies due to them surrendering. They walk over the debris of what was left of the walls and approach the guard.

I wish to talk to the assembly about their disobedience.
