The third game in the Total War franchise takes place during the rise of the Roman Empire. Control one of three Roman families (or surrounding nations) to lead armies, occupy cities, or improve diplomatic relations, all in a free-roaming map. Released in 2004 by Creative Assembly just before it was bought out by Sega, it received two expansions: Barbarian Invasion (2005) and Alexander (2006), with two repackaged versions after each one. Like many PC games, it has enjoyed a healthy mod community, with many fan-made scenarios and balance tweaks.

The goal of this campaign is to be first to hold 15 provinces and outlast or destroy the
factions Macedon and Thrace.
1. turn: In the beginning I sent my spy to the town Corinth(40% chance to open the gates,so
I do not need to make a sidge).Then I select all army from town Sparta and attack Corinth.The
spy openes the gate and It´s a  win(I win all the battles with auto resolve).
I exterminate the population in Corinth to gain some money and to make the population happyness high.
I buy/train a diplomat in Corinth.
Next on I select the army from towns Thermon and Corinth and make a plan to attack Larissa.
In the east, from town Rhodes I select all army from it and send it into navy ship and move it
closer to the coasts of Thracians region in the north.From Pergamum I select army and sent it to the rebel
city northeast.Next I press end turn.
