Hello Delegates, and welcome to Greece, or shall I say Hellas.

I am your erstwhile historian Thucydides. You are in the greatest war antiquity would ever see, the Peloponnesian War. Whether you are on the side of oligarchic, war-like Sparta, or democratic, cultured Athens, be prepared to fight for your way of life. Soldiers, diplomats, spies, puppet leaders; all have a part to play in the battles to come, for wars are rarely just won on the battlefield. Will you choose to find allies and make peace? Will you subjugate and put your enemies to the blade? Remember, strive for greatness, for as heroic Pericles once said, the whole earth is the tomb of great men.
