Missions[edit | edit source]
- Main article: Greek missions
As a Greek nation, Elis can pursue the Pan-Hellenic Government mission, guiding them through the unification of the Greek city-states into a new Hellenic League. Expanding into ports of Asia, Bithynia et Paphlagonia, or Thrace will unlock access to the The Hospitable Sea, focusing on establishing control of the Black Sea.
Like all other countries, Elis always has access to the generic missions.
Decisions[edit | edit source]
The minor state of Achaea was a thorn in the side of Roman expansion during the 2nd Century BC, having formed a powerful league of city states, conquering Sparta, and punching well above its weight.
More broadly, Elis can undertake the decision to form the Hellenic League if they control all of Greece and Thessaly. This can be pursued even after forming Achaea.
During the days of Argead domination the League of Corinth united all Greek cities in one league. The goal of this organization was always to control them, and to deny them the independence that they are due. But the idea of a Pan-Hellenic League has not died with the oppressive actions of the Argeads and Antipatrids, it could also be the ultimate guarantor of Greek Independence.
Let us unite one and all and form a League to encompass all the free cities of Greece. Together we will become the dominant force of the Greek world, leaving the kingdoms of would be successors, or usurpers, behind us.
