With DEI you really have a lot of choices to make when you add a new building to a city that can have big effects later on. So factions with a lot of cities like Seleucids and Egypt can be very tough to play with so many choices to make. Small factions like Athens and some of the German or Gauls can take forever before anything exciting happens. The factions in the middle are best to play until you get handle on the game mechanics, Rome and Carthage. But go with a culture that interest you like maybe one of the Red Sea factions or British. Also for me, the battles are a lot tougher than vanilla.

Thanks for the advice & recommendations, Sir Slash.  I'd kinda gotten the impression that larger factions might be a bit overwhelming, especially when I've not really played DEI before.  I'll let you know which one I go with! 



Seleucids!

Ha, I knew you were going to suggest them!  Let me get my feet wet with a faction that's a little less intimidating first.  :D

Phhht! Elephants, they're a thankless bunch. Just try to get even one to lie down and rub against your feet while you're watching TV.  :coolsmiley:

I've started a campaign as Mamlakatin Saba, one of the desert tribal kingdoms in southern Arabia.  They get a bonus to farm & trade income, have access to some juicy trade routes, and (most importantly) they can recruit camel units into their army.  I couldn't resist.  :D

Not if you were trying to get them to breed. With each other I mean. Post some pics Martok.  :bd:
