The Barcas

While the Barca family has been a force in Carthaginian politics for a long time few have made a name for themselves in the same way as Hamilcar Barca. After a number of successful enterprises in our widespread empire this man has returned to build an empire for him and his kin. While some eyebrows have been raised in response to Hamilcar's request to bring an army into Hispania his actions could without a doubt expand our influence in the region. He promises to bring in new settlers as well as secure our access to the many resources of the peninsula.

Accompanying Hamilcar is his sons and daughters, some would say that his actions are as much to build a power base for his family as it is to promote the influence of our city.

Backlash of the Oligarchs

Our great city has until recently, and by long tradition, been ruled by a pair of kings; Suffets elected by the senatorial assembly to oversee the conduct of war and the administration of the empire. These appointments were fettered by bribery and nepotism, with two families, the Magonids in particular, dominating the political landscape.

The power of the kings eventually waned and was slowly replaced with more direct senatorial authority, leading to Hannonian Bomilcar's failed coup to restore the power of the monarchs in 446. Carthage has now escaped the stifling grip of bought crowns and continues to flourish under the republican direction of our oligarchs.

However, there are still some senators who look back on the monarchy with a certain wistfulness, and fear that the path we tread may lead to empowered popular assemblies or, what's worse, full blown democracy.

Desperate Measures

In the wake of the resounding defeats suffered at the hands of her enemies, not least the Romans, an ambitious, military minded, senator has been enthusiastically advocating for wide reforms the Carthaginian military and a rapid build up of her forces in order to counter the decline.

[SCOPE.sChar('scope:reformist').GetName] has been preaching his ideas, in both the forum and the senate, to a somewhat mixed reception. While many in the military back his proposed reforms, there is an equally large opposition who fear the army gaining too much power and advocate for a renewed mercantile focus to fill Carthage's coffers.

[SCOPE.sC('dhe_carthage_subject_scope').GetAdjective] Demands

We have been approached by our Carthaginian subject state [SCOPE.sC('dhe_carthage_subject_scope').GetName] who, to the great surprise and chagrin of almost the entire senate, sent an envoy bearing a long list of grievances over the unsatisfactory relationship of the Carthaginian states, and a demand for [SCOPE.sC('dhe_carthage_subject_scope').GetName] to be granted full autonomy, as an equal of Carthage, and that all tutelary arrangements between our nations cease.

Word of this has quickly spread to the other Carthaginian vassals, leaving us in the awkward position of upsetting the nominally independent Phoenician city states who have become reliant on Carthaginian successes...

The Sicilian Situation

For almost two hundred years we have pressed our claim to the island of Sicily, trying and failing to integrate its resourceful defenders into our empire. Our foothold on the western half of the island has cost us much blood and sweat, and while we more than once almost brought the island's powers to their knees, they always drove us back in the end.

In recent memory, Agathokles, the tyrant of Syracuse, drew us into our seventh conflict over the island in a bid to force us into ceding our Sicilian holdings, even invading Africa and laying siege to Carthage herself. Ultimately, Agathokles was soundly defeated in 448, and accepted a status quo peace.

Today, many in the senate argue that if we are to be taken seriously by the Greeks we must bring an end to our Sicilian rivals, whose very existence is a shameful reminder of our past blunders...

The Numidian Kings

Since the establishment of the first Phoenician cities on the African coast hundreds of years ago, the Numidians and other native inhabitants of the colonies have been great allies, supplying many of our valuable exports and making us wealthy through their interest in exotic goods and high quality imports from around the Mediterranean.

We are no longer a collection of small cities, but a great empire reaching across the internal ocean, and while our relationship with the Numidian kings has been useful in the past, some argue that the time has come for the Numidians to accept our government and become part of Carthage proper...

The Roman Threat

The startling growth of the minor Latin city-state of Rome has been looked on with growing dismay by the Carthaginian elites and merchant classes, who increasingly demand action. They argue Rome has now reached a point where they are able to pose a direct threat to our interests, lamenting the effect of Roman power on their trade networks in our Mediterranean spheres of influence.

We are a naval power, and it is ships that will be the decider of any conflict with Rome; it is said that the Romans can now almost match the Carthaginian fleet in size, if not in skill. Senators from across the house demand swift action and an appropriate readiness be adopted in order to ensure Carthage prevails in any future conflict, although a smaller group of voices is attempting to prevent making enemies of the Romans...

Victory in Sicily

At long last our struggle for the island of Sicily is over, and with it our Mediterranean position is unquestionably secured. We no longer need worry over the threat of Greek interference in our vital trade routes or the ambitions of their tyrants and kings, and the rich Greek cities of the Italian peninsula lay open to us.

However, Sicily is a populous island with a long and proud Greek tradition in addition to that of local Latin tribes; these spirited people have had much invested in a Carthaginian defeat, and will doubtless not be immediately content with our rule.

It has been suggested that a client state be established in order to placate the desire for self-governance, others advocate that this island is no different from any other and must bend to our will, still others that settling military veterans in Sicily will redress the balance of power in the cities...

Our Sea

We have built an empire stretching from the Pillars of Melqart, the gateway of the endless ocean, to the straits of Asia, known to the Greeks as the Bosporos. Every day, thousands of ships laden with the wealth of the world make their journeys across the internal sea, from one Carthaginian port to another, in a seamless network of trade protected by our peerless fleets.

Truly, the world lays at our feet; we are the first empire to achieve such total dominance of the Mediterranean. Tanit smiles on us, but, having achieved such a feat, we must decide what the future holds for Carthage...

Magna Graecian Conquests

After years of planning, warfare, and careful maneuvering, the southern Italian peninsula is under our control. No longer will the rich colonial cities of the Greeks compete with Carthaginian merchants, or the Latin tribes threaten our holdings in the Southern Mediterranean.

Questions have been raised on how the new region should be governed; the Latin and Greek population and no fans of ours, and incorporating such a large area accustomed to independence will likely not be easy.

We could set up a local government in the region to address their grievances directly. Alternatively, settling the many veterans of recent wars in Italy will help offset the foreign population.

Italian Conquests

We have completely crushed the Latins of the Italian peninsula. These lowly city states and tribes will join the countless others who tried and failed to resist the Carthaginian empire. Of note is the city of Rome, a populous and strategically placed local capital whose people are among the most spirited we have come across, and whose government even began to resemble a civilized state.

These new conquests will prove difficult to govern unless managed properly. The vast population of proud hill dwelling tribes is unused to defeat, and sure to resist us.

The usual suggestions for dealing with such situations have been made; establishing a local administration which can focus fully on the task of governance, settling deserving Carthaginian veterans in appropriated farmland, or accepting a degree of unpleasantness in the short-term. .

Etruscan Fortunes[edit]

Etruscan Fortunes

After subduing the last of the spirited tribes, the island of Sardinia has finally been fully tamed and our presence established beyond question. From there, the next logical step in our expansion, and colonization of the Mediterranean islands, is naturally Corsica; Sardinia's smaller brother and a former Carthaginian colony. Since the island passed from influence it has been ruled by Greeks and Etruscans, but we are poised to rightfully bring Corsica under Tanit's banner once more.

The Etruscans are a wily and intelligent people who have aided us against the Greeks in the past; they may be willing to compromise on ownership of the island for the right price...

An Offer from Carthage

We have received an envoy bearing a strange offer from the mercantile Carthaginian empire. He conveyed that Carthage, looking to its position in Sardinia and the Mediterranean, is very interested in re-acquiring the lost Phoenician colonies in Corsica and has offered to buy outright all Etruscan territories on the island for a 'generous' price.

Without being explicit, the envoy's words still quite clearly conveyed a veiled threat that this offer was a mere formality, and Carthage would do what it must to protect its interests...

Etruscan Fortunes

After subduing the last of the spirited tribes, the island of Sardinia has finally been fully tamed and our presence established beyond question. From there, the next logical step in our expansion, and colonization of the Mediterranean islands, is naturally Corsica; Sardinia's smaller brother and a former Carthaginian colony. Since the island passed from influence it has been ruled by Greeks and Etruscans, but we are poised to rightfully bring Corsica under Tanit's banner once more.

The Etruscans are a wily and intelligent people who have aided us against the Greeks in the past; they may be willing to compromise on ownership of the island for the right price...
