Mission roman.png

With the Punic Wars DLC, Flag of Rome Rome has a unique set of 9 missions primarily focusing on its conquests during the time period, including the unification of Italy, the struggle with Flag of Carthage Carthage over Africa and the Western Mediterranean, conquering the tribes of Gaul and Hispania, and incursions into the east to gain control of the Hellenistic states of Greece and Asia.

Roman Italia[edit]

Mission rome 1.png

Since the founding of Roma by Romulus hundreds of years ago, our proud city has skirmished with our Italic neighbors, vying for control of the coasts and cities of Latium and Campania. Our recent victories over the Etruscans and Samnites have proved our superiority, and it is clear that it is Rome who is destined to unite the Italic peoples and lead them to glory.

The Roman Italia mission tree focuses on the unification of Italy under Roman rule, with tasks to conquer each of the other Italic regions and tribes and set up Roman colonies in the region. The end of the tree allows choosing between possible specializations for the colonies, as well as choosing whether to grant full rights and citizenship to deal with the now-subjugated Italic peoples, or enforcing a Roman hegemony. There are also optional tasks to organize a Pan-Italic Congress to attempt to unify Italy diplomatically, which many allow Rome to get alliances, guarantees, and feudatories peacefully, as well as a task to betray the Roman allies and attempt to annex them into the realm forcefully.

Mission branches[edit]

Italian diplomacy branch[edit]

The Italian diplomacy branch starts off the mission tree, with no prerequisites, and allows the country to choose how it deals with the other Italic states. The main task required to progress down the rest of the tree will give various claims on other Italian states as well as various military modifiers, but through optional tasks Flag of Rome Rome can also seek to emulate the Greek leagues of old and attempt a more diplomatic approach towards unifying Italy - or forsake its alliances altogether and destroy its sworn feudatories.

Southern expansion branch[edit]

Flag of Messapia Messapia, Flag of Lucania Lucania, and Flag of Bruttia Bruttia and establishing Roman colonies as a reward. There is also an optional mission task that allows the country to peacefully demand tributary status of the various Greek city-states or liberate subjugated cities from their overlords, though these aggressive moves may spur the formation of an anti-Roman coalition instead.
