The Peloponnessian League was in history the allied forces of Greek City States  for two centuries.

To c-rpg it is a faction that all characters that are inspired by the armies of ancient Greece can unite under (I realise the faction 'Phalanx' was around but it seems to have died). The faction fights together in formation and as a single stoic unit.

To work together in the formation of a phalanx requires good communication and the ability to not only hold your ground but to protect the man on your left (300 got some things right :P). Of course I realise that due to the nature of this game producing a historically faithful phalanx is near impossible, however with a little experimentation and work I believe that we could make some dead hoplites proud :P

This is a faction open to mains and alts of players who are willing to play a strictly disciplined game and value teamwork over heroics. Characters should be able to play a useful role in the faction. Players are also required to be mature and respectful. Currently based in EU.

This is a faction that I predict will be mainly made of alts as I know that many players have their factions they already belong to (myself included) but if you feel like building an alt and joining that is just as good as only belonging to this faction.

Appearance

This can vary but keep with a hoplite theme, banner and look shown in spoiler below

- only round shields
- not too heavy armour (kuyaks look not hoplite like but a bit like a medieval hoplite might dress)
- strong helmet

Found in Overdrivens Banner pack

Builds

For now the League is only looking for infantry builds in order to form the main phalanx. So here are some builds that the league requires to achieve its first objective.

Hoplite (Front Rank)

This Hoplite is capable at using a spear but is also adept at using the shorter swords, while keeping his body behind a strong shield. He must stand his ground whatever comes at him, relying on fellow hoplites from the front and back ranks to support him.

- High shield skill required
- Moderate polearm Proficiency
- Relatively high proficiency in one handed weapons

Suggested weapons :

- Heavy Round Shield
- War Spear
- short one handed blade designed for lightning fast strikes e.g. long dagger, falcion, scottish sword

Hoplite (Back Ranks)

This Hoplite supports the man in front of him using his high proficiency in polearms to prevent attackers getting close enough to reach the front ranks of the phalanx. He must be precise with his thrusts and be able to time them well.

- High Shield Skill
- High Polearm Proficiency

Suggested Weapons :

- Ash Pike (a fast and strong support spear that allows the use of a shield as well)
- Heavy Round or Huscarl Shield
- Long Dagger (for desperate cases as the ash pike is near useless in close quarters)

Peltast

These Light Infantry are designed to add some flexibility to the phalanx, though they are not strictly related to the phalanx of 600 bce they were later adopted by the Macedonian armies of Phillip II. They will give the phalanx protection at the flanks while being able to harass opponents before contact.

- Some Shield Skill
- Good proficiency in 1 handed weapons
- good athletics
- Throwing capabilites (to javelin standards at least)

Suggested weapons :

- Elite Cavalry or Round Cavalry Shield
- Javelins
- Light 1h swords and axes

Tag

The tag for the league will be :

PL (e.g. PL_Hoplitai_Lorenzo)

Also maybe later on the actual role you play in the league can be introduced into the tag but for now PL will do.

Members

PL_Hoplitai_Lorenzo (Alt)
PL_Spartan_Darko (Alt)
PL_Overdriven (Alt)

Contact

For now as this is in the early stages if you would be interested in joining the League then just leave a post on this faction's wall. I can then get in contact with you.

Post under construction.

A lot of the details about this faction will be filled when (and if) it gains a sufficient member base.

Thanks guys :)

Definately interested, I'll see if i can find my old Phalanx guy lying around.

But one question: I know you're trying to be historically correct, but wouldn't be an idea to have the peltast like the rest of the infantry (In terms of armor), so that the only difference would be the throwing? I think having hoplites with throwing weapons and swords makes the formation much more versatile.

Ye these are just rough ideas, my hoplite actually throws as well so i sorta broke my own suggestions :P Its something that needs to be tested and is as much on the table as the suggested ideas, I just thought I'd start with history as thats as good a basis as any ;)

Fighting in formation is so god damn hard. (Check the cult of mithras which died around start of strat v3).

We'll if anything I'll join with an alt.
He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief. He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened his mouth.

formation is loose term for it , its more a case of moving as a unit working together to bring down foes quickly.

Also I must admit guys I am not overly prepared for producing a faction, as in I am not overly good at producing banners etc and I need to sort out a ts channel, but this is all stuff I hope we could meet about and then decide together if we get enough interest :) So you may have to be patient with me :P
