Bombed Last Phase
Esocial - You are Pyrrhus of Epirus, glorious leader of Epirus. Hannibal once considered you one of the best generals in all of history. You were famous for your invasion of the Italian Peninsula. Fighting both Carthage and Rome, you suffered great but disastrous victories. Which is how the term "Pyhric Victory" was coined. You may kill a player in the BP, but will sacrifice a player of your team. As a faction leader, your role will influence which team wins. You win with Greece!
PM: 5

Battle of Cannae (Night KIll)
Carthage: 7 votes, with a power measure of 20
Rome: 4 votes, with a power measure of 8

Result: Roman player with the lower power measure died. All players on Rome have an automatic power measure of 3 placed on them.

What should be examined from Cannae
- Did anyone lie about their affiliations (6 roman claims, and 4 roman votes)
- Did night actions affect the results?>
- Who did the survivors, mercenaries, and scum vote for?
- What affiliation would the mod killed players of been?
- What faction has the advantage at this point?

Died in Battle
Peacefulchaos - You are Fabius Maximus, five times Roman Consul, and twice dictator. Your time on the political stage has earned you fame, but that's nothing compared to your combat tactics. You're known as the father of guerilla war, using your evasion tactics to lead Hannibal Barca into desolate combat zones. Unfortunately, your hit and run tactics allowed Hannibal time to recruit and gain in strength. Hence, you are the Destructive Guerilla. During the BP, you may disable a players power, and the person he visits power. This has 2 shots. You win with Roma!
PM: 3

Numidian Tribes Split
Event: Following the Battle of Cannae, the numidian tribes gave up all hope of reunification. Syphax and Masinissa declared independence, and are fighting with their respective factions. Blood will be spilt, before a new crown will be bestowed.
Result: Syphax joins Carthage and Masinissa joins Rome

Pyrrhus Flees to Greece
Event: With the defeat of Pyrrhus in Roma, the Greek alliance is in ruins. All the destruction done in Italia will slowly cease. While Magna Graecia rebuilds, you collapse.
Result: Power measures reset to original value

History translated into game strategies

Carthage - Your faction historically won the Battle of Cannae. The 2nd bloodiest formation battle in human history. With your decisive victory, and the cunning of your general, you were able to have the upper hand on Rome. Historically, this is when Fabius restarted his guerrilla campaign on Carthage. Hannibal put his victory to waste by dodging around Rome, instead of marching to fight their troops, who were equally on the defensive. Do not make the same mistake Hannibal did. Now is your chance. Root out and kill all Romans!

Rome - Your faction was incredibly lopsided following Cannae, and Hannibal's previous defeats. Your strategy was to bring food up from the south, misdirect Hannibal's troops away from Rome, and defend the Rhine as best as possible. Follow the same strategy, and you will win. Keep making Carthage doubt your affiliation. Claim you were lying if you have to. Let scum even the odds.

Greece -Your faction suffered many defeats in the war. After Pyrrhus fled back to Epirus, Thrace and Macedon were left incredibly vunerable, resulting in eventual subjugation by the Romans. In this case, Carthage will probably want to stamp out Rome, but any intervention on your part, may result in reinstating the alliance against you. Try to stay out of the spotlight, and rely on your advantage for the night kill.

Numidia - Ceases to exist. Carthago must kill Masinissa to win, and Roma must kill Syphax to win.

Mercenaries - Ceases to exist.

Cult - You now have a bustling hub, with many players serving gods every need. Try to use them to recover the artifacts.
How about NO elections?

Fun Fact: Hannibal was able to kill about 70,000 Romans, while only suffering the loss of about 5000 men. That makes the Battle of Cannae both the second bloodiest formation battle of all time, and the largest decisive victory in history. Imagine 70,000 bodies all piled up on each other, all in this tiny circle that Hannibal flanked them in.

There isn't a pack of Roman votes. Someone redirected my vote for Rome to Carthage.
I'm becoming less defined as days go by, fading away, and well you might say, I'm losing focus, kinda drifting into the abstract in terms of how I see myself.

This is from PeacefulChaos.

One of the leaders, either from Rome or Carthage, have gotten cursed and won't say anything this day phase. You need to confirm which one that was.

Secondly, my death confirms YamaVonKarma as scum. He claimed to be Roman ambassador, but there can only be one Roman ambassador. That is clearly me. He must be killed today, because apparently night votes didn't go in.

It appears as though someone manipulated Subutai's vote. There is only one person who can do that, and he's already claimed he can do it.

For now, this is all I have to say.

Don't worry, just some problems on my end.
I'm not sure if Yama has diplomatic immunity or not still.. I doubt Chosen will confirm if he still does (maybe?)

Let's see, shalt we?

I will make one final argument on my side. I defended Innan when Mikal originally wanted to bomb him, and Mikal is out for blood.
