Swords, shields, hundreds of willing men… A foolhardy general may be tricked into thinking his army needs nothing more to win a war, but what use is a sword if you have no arm to drive it into the enemy? What use is a horse with no legs? What use is my army without ships to transport it? I have commandeered a small merchant fleet, but they threw their sails overboard and fled at the first sight of my men. Archon – take your men to every Persian encampment, trade route and caravan site you can find. Defeat them, and return to me with the oilskin from the caravans – those shall be our sails!
