I decided to start up a new Philip campaign (gold edition) a few days ago, after reading the Rome announcement. I still love this game, and even though I've played through the campaign a couple of times, I still find myself enjoying it a lot.
I have my own preferred order of conquest, at least in the early game, where I usually start with Eordea, Elimea and Heraclea Lyncestis, then move south through Olooson and take northern and western Thessaly. Then I take Methone and Pydna, as well as the cities south of them along the coast to Thessaly. Then I move into Chacidice, although staying south of the mountains, and stopping before reaching Bisaltia and Amphipolis. Then I take the last Macedonian towns to the west, and move into Paeonia. After that, I usually have enough men to comfortably start attacking on several fronts. Sometimes I go for Illyria, other times I start moving south or east.
Anyway, I've been wondering to what extent this is historical. In what order did Philip do all this stuff? If anyone knows I'd be interested to hear. It would have been nice if a rough timeline was included in the in-game manual. Maybe this could be included in Rome?
