A message from the marathoners!
The fight for control over Greece grows more dangerous by the day!
Throughout Hellas, the war is raging and the fight to hold onto our Pantheons provides great difficulty for our people. Our lives are on the line, Archons – we must stand up for our country and claim our Pantheons back from grasp of the Persians. Let your men know that Xerxes won’t give up the Pantheons without a fight – expect heavy resistance to your presence and frequent attempts to reclaim them.
Each time you succeed in repelling Persian attacks, your Coalition will be rewarded with great amounts of Orichalcum. This new Resource can be used to grant "Veteran" status to your Units. Veteran Units are more experienced and effective than normal Units, boasting improved Offensive and Defensive statistics, as well as consuming less Grain.
So Archons, work together with your Coalition and establish your dominance over Hellas. Only those Coalitions strong enough to withstand the full brunt of Xerxes’ forces will be able to receive the greatest rewards Greece has to offer.
