R5: So I finally did it, and just in time for Christmas. My first Mare Nostrum. This took me way too many attempts to do, but it was worth it. If anybody really wants, I can post how I got this far.

You are watching: I found rome a city of brick and left it a city of marble

Edited for grammar.


I mean I'd love to hear how you did it, I have yet to muster the strength/willpower to survive 300 years to do this and not die of boredom


The basic plan looked like this:

Declare war on England as soon as you can. Don’t forget to take back all your cores.

Declare war on Aragon. Take the islands near Algers and some coastline.

Use these islands as a jumping off point into North Africa with the goal to beat the Ottomans to Egypt and Syria.

Take a vassal in Italy and vassal feed it off. You have a mission for Naples if you’re France, so they work well.

Don’t be too greedy. Overextended empires are doomed empires.

Balance AE and stay in control of the Holy See for that sweet -20% aggressive expansion,

Be patent, but keep expanding.

Hope this answers some of your questions!

Is there anything interesting you can do AS Rome, or is forming it pretty much the end of the game.

Not really in all honesty. It’s only good for the achievement and the -20% CCR from Roman ideas.

For people aiming to recreate historical borders or strictly chasing achieveme ants forming it is usually end game. But you can absolutely pursue more; by expanding aggressively outside Europe as well while you build up your local powerbase and waging multiple wars at once in different parts of the world, you can become the hegemon on every continent or WC with it. Pushing for more is more fun than just recreating old borders to me.

You lose accepting your culture group. I did it as spain so no huge loss as it's not as highly developed as like France or Italy.
