Flag of Massaesylia Massaesylia is a Regional Power holding lands in North Africa split between the Mauretania and Numidia provinces. Both Flag of Massaesylia Massaesylia and its historic rival, Flag of Massylia Massylia, played influential roles in the conflicts between Rome and Carthage, with their proficiency in cavalry proving invaluable battlefield advantages to the side they backed. Historically, after siding with the defeated Flag of Carthage Carthage in the Second Punic War, Massaesylia was annexed by Flag of Massylia Massylia into the united kingdom of Flag of Numidia Numidia.


Being a part of the Numidian culture group gives Flag of Massaesylia Massaesylia access to the decision to form Flag of Numidia Numidia.

Flag of Massaesylia Massaesylia starts the game in a very precarious situation, surrounded by Flag of Carthage Carthage and its many subjects. Securing an Alliance.png alliance with Flag of Rome Rome will help dissuade early aggression from Flag of Carthage Carthage. This alliance will also be vital for when war eventually does break out. Flag of Carthage Carthage has more population, cohorts, and military tech so utilizing Flag of Rome Rome and any other allies you can gather will be necessary for defeating them. Your Pirate Heritage allows you to perform Slave raid slave raids to bring slaves back to your capital. To perform a Slave raid slave raids you will need a navy with at least Naval combat.png 10 ships to be adjacent to a Port icon.png port with at least Population.png 5 population and no Fortification.png forts. Slave Raiding will cause 1 Aggressive expansion.png Aggressive Expansion point and an additional 1 point per raided port (up to 1). Your Capital starts with only 4 Population.png population so it is important to immediately build your initial navy to 10 ships and begin raiding ports across the Western Mediterranean in order to rapidly boost its population.

As Massaesylia it can be a good idea to use the entice governor interaction to steal provinces from Flag of Carthage Carthage, helping to equalize your power. Be mindful that this costs 20 Aggressive expansion.png aggressive expansion, so be wary of taking too much territory too quickly.
