Faction Overview Strategic Overview History

The Sicilians have the power of Commerce.

Located south of Italy and near the strategic regions of Malta and Tunisia, this volcanic island, once the greatest of all Greek polities, may yet rise again as a major power in the Mediterranean, but its location and recent events in the Muslim world will ensure that this would never be a process without violent struggle. Still, Sicily's overlords may transform their newly acquired stronghold into a major trading power, perhaps strong enough to challenge even Byzantium and Baghdad. As a major melting pot of Latin, Greek and Arab cultures, Sicily too enjoys an aeclectic military culture - perhaps one that can be used to its advantage, particularly if it ever crosses the Tyrrhenian sea or the Straits of Messina.
