And so rages the Nilotic War, fought both by armies and merchants. While the Pharaoh applies direct pressure and relied on his generals, Axum uses their countless tendrils of money and influence to direct and unite his faceless enemies to confuse their great opponent. Some of the most massive battles in history are fought in this time, as well as some interesting tactics used again and again in the future. (Unknown Scribe)
