Imperial Conquest 2 is based in the ancient Mediterranean, starting
in 270 BC. There are 16 nations to be lead by human or computer players. The 5 major powers; Rome, Carthage, the Seleucid Empire, the Ptolemaic Empire, and Macedonia,
have certain qualities or advantages that gives them a realistic chance of conquering
the whole of the Mediterranean area.
There are 11 other nations; Numidia, Gaul, Greece, Celtiberia, Illyria, Dacia,
Bithynia, Galatia, Armenia, Media, and Thracia. Some of these have a chance of
acquiring a substantial empire given efficient leadership. The smallest nations
will need an ingenious and lucky leader to merely survive.
