Guess I am not alone in finding especially the Illyrians and their raids very annoying...
Are the factions weakened when I take prisoners as slaves or execute them, and when conquering cities, etc.?
Is it necessary (and even possible) to completely annihilate a faction in order for the attacks to end?
Great game, by the way! I have played it for some time now, and really like the feel of it: interesting time period, very nice map and UI, exciting feel to it, involving strategy and to some extent role playing (through units' XPs).
