The Greek Wars Summary

Post by Volksie on 2008-04-07, 00:02

The story begins with an inevitable war between Argos and Megara brewing. King Aristippos has been the target of an unsuccessful assassination, formulated by a mysterious man within Megara and seeks vengeance.

Argos wishes to have allies in this fight as Megara is already allied with Sparta, a deal struck up when King Helikaon of Sparta asked for the hand in marriage of a beautiful woman within Megara. The Council in Athens agrees to the Argive offers and the war begins. Aristoxenus, a young strategos, is given command of the Athenian army. Meanwhile, a Spartan soldier, by the name of Dragos, attends to General Byzas, the commander of the Spartan army. This Spartan army is ordered to Megara, to aid in the upcoming fight. With all of Southern Greece ready to commit to battle and the Athenian army set to aid Argos, Corinth joins the fight on the side of the Athenians and Argives. Nicodemus, an influential general in the Corinthian army, is given supreme command of the army. Aristoxenus travels to Corinth with a small portion of the Athenian army.

While all of Greece is sitting on the verge of war, one man sleeps happily in the Megaran underbelly. Adrastos is an assassin but hasn't worked for many years. He was shaped to kill by a Megaran man named Otis- the father of Eleni (the beautiful woman betrothed to King Helikaon) and attempted killer of Aristippos. Otis controls a large network of spies and assassins from Megara and has a hand in all things political. His motivations are not always clear but he generally seems to put the interests of Megara first. In the hope of killing two birds with one stone (not to mention getting rid of the stone while he's at it) he sends Adrastos to kill either Nicodemus or Aristoxenus, the threat of his own death being Adrastos' motivation.

The Spartans, with Dragos and General Byzas, being sneaky little devils, have sailed to Megara under the pretence of providing protection. While they are there another force marches on Argos and lays siege to it. The army of Byzas and Dragos then marches on Corinth. With the threat of an army approaching Corinth lies in disarray. The reason being that Aristoxenus and Nicodemus do not get along. While their intentions remain similar their personalities conflict to such a degree that hostility is rife between them.

The Spartan army marches for Corinth still when Byzas gives Dragos the mission of delivering a message to Aristoxenus. Dragos is in Athens before he realises that Aristoxenus is in Corinth. He blushes in embarrassment and turns around. He reaches Corinth and scales the walls at night. An alarm is raised but Dragos is not caught. He manages to reach Aristoxenus, who he knew from his youth, to offer a deal. The deal offers Corinth to Athens after the war. Aristoxenus is angered that Dragos would think he could turn on an ally so easily and orders him to leave.

With the alarm raised the next intruder in Corinth is in a bad position. Adrastos hits a run of bad luck and happens to be also scaling the walls of Corinth. When he reaches the top he is hauled away by guards to see Nicodemus. Nicodemus threatens him with torture and all manner of pain and suffering. Aristoxenus, seeing that Adrastos can be of use to him, visits Adrastos and agrees to set him free if he does something for him. Adrastos is freed on the condition that he travels to Argos and kills King Helikaon, the duel king of Sparta (the other king being King Athanaikos). Adrastos leaves the city as the Corinthian and Athenian army march out to fight Sparta. Outside of the city he meets an Athenian man, named Galen, who was given the task of aiding Adrastos and keeping an eye on him. Together they travel to Argos while the battle rages behind them.

The Corinthian/Athenian army meet the Spartan army and the battle is a close one. Eventually the cavalry of Aristoxenus deal a crucial blow and the Spartan army retreats. Aristoxenus kills General Byzas personally and Dragos assumes command of the Spartan army. He travels to Argos where his king lays siege to the city and holds the outer city. General Dragos reaches Argos and is in the very process of greeting his king when a knife, thrown by Adrastos, pierces the throat of the king. Adrastos escapes the clutches of the Spartans but remains trapped in the outer city of Argos. In a fit of rage Dragos orders the complete destruction of the outer city of Argos.

In the acropolis sits a poet. Iphitos is a well-mannered and respectable man who considers the siege of Argos as a nuisance but does not worry too much so long as he stays behind the lines of good Argive soldiers. As he writes he is called to see King Aristippos who has decided to give the poet a chance to prove himself in battle in a romantic and poetical manner. Iphitos is to take part in a rear attack on the Spartan army and provide a chance for relief on the city of Argos. Iphitos finds the idea terrifying and as the Argive warriors charge the Spartan camp he turns and runs for the woods.

Adrastos has escaped from the city much easier than he anticipated and is surprised to see the Spartan army withdrawing from the city. He wastes no time and makes for the woods in which Galen awaits his arrival. As he flees the city he turns to see it burning and suddenly fear grips him. He crashes through the thick trees and (literally) runs into Iphitos. Iphitos decides to travel back to Corinth with them. The Spartan army withdraws from Argos and returns to Sparta. Dragos has made himself the ruler of Sparta as the king, Athanaikos, is too young to properly rule.

With the Spartan army beaten Nicodemus wishes to march on Sparta. Aristoxenus disagrees on the plan and refuses to commit his troops to an attack. With too few numbers the attack is cancelled. Nicodemus is angry but he looks to the future. His long term plans involve usurping the throne of Corinth.

Iphitos and Adrastos reach Corinth and Adrastos takes Iphitos to a bar to eat and drink. Soon after they enter two men follow and Adrastos becomes suspicious. The men attack Iphitos and Adrastos but they beat off the attack. The two men rush to find Aristoxenus to warn him of Megaran assassins in the city. An assassin makes an attempt on the life of Nicodemus and two on that of Aristoxenus, who is in meeting with Galen. Both attempts fail. Adrastos meets with Aristoxenus and Aristoxenus tells Adrastos to travel to Megara with Galen and discover how deep the mystery of the assassination attempts ran. Iphitos stays behind and becomes Nicodemus' poet.

The Spartan army once again marches from Sparta on Corinth with Dragos at the head. In a plan thought up by Aristoxenus, a force of Athenians sail to Sparta in an attempt to take the city whilst the Spartan army is out at the shops.

Around this time, a little lady enters the story who'll hugely shape the events in the future. Lady Eleni is the wife of a senator of Megara, and practically controls his every move. She also happens to be the daughter of our old friend Otis. When Adrastos leaves Aristoxenus' quarters in Corinth, he bumps into her, introducing himself as Pan, before he leaves with Galen. A little later Iphitos, who has heard about Aristoxenus' plan, meets Eleni, and finds her pretty sexy. She manipulates him into telling her lots of nice little secrets. She even convinces him to smuggle a letter, written to her father, out of the city.

Meanwhile, Dragos' army, which contains almost all of Sparta's men, comes ever closer to Corinth. He splits the army into two, one to besiege Corinth, and one to continue on to Athens. He leaves Argos to rot, believing it to have lost all power. The Corinthians clear the land around their city of trees to prevent the Spartans building siege equipment. Aristoxenus and a small force of men board the combined Atheno-Corinthian navy, under the command of Admiral Amphion, and set sail ready to carry out Aristoxenus' plan. The navy passes Dragos' army on the coast at night, and all seems well for carrying out their mission in secret. However, Dragos notices the port at Corinth empty, and realising what has happened sends 400 elite hoplites from his army back to Sparta on horseback. The Atheno-Corinthian navy clashes with, and destroys, the Spartan navy.

The first Spartan army reaches Corinth and puts it under siege. Nicodemus begins to find it difficult to control politicians such as Hecateaus, who want to sally out of the city at once. For the moment, he convinces the king to keep the troops inside the city walls. But not everyone stays inside. Eleni, and her Megaran entourage, leave the city secretly at night. The Spartan army grants them passage, believing them to be simple messengers from Megara. She reaches the city, and reports back to her father. He tells her to find Adrastos and kill him. Ironically, it seems Eleni has taken quite a liking to 'Pan', who she does not realise is Adrastos, in the one time they met.

Aristoxenus' troops make landfall at the Eurotas river and march Northwards to Sparta. Once inside the city, they meet little resistance until they reach a long street leading up to the Acropolis. Suddenly, they're ambushed by the 400 elites that Dragos sent back. In a fierce fight, the Athenians eventually kill all 400 of the Spartans, but lose 1000 of their ~3000 men in return. It seems they might be crushed when Athanaikos appears with his Royal Guards. However, the young king is a slimy little worm, and doesn't much like Dragos. He offers Aristoxenus an alliance with Sparta, if he'll help lure Dragos back to the city for execution. Aristoxenus agrees, and his forces begin putting up temporary palisades around the city.

The second Spartan army, with Dragos at its head, camps outside Megara, and Eleni takes her chance to stir the pot a little more. She has a little conversation with Dragos, who, ever the womaniser, finds her just as hot as Iphitos did. And she left a very lasting impression on the poet. Finding out from Nicodemus that she left the city, Iphitos refuses to believe that she is a spy, but instead decides that she must have been kidnapped and that he must rescue her. He doesn't get far before he's captured by the Spartans. Dragos is told by a messenger from Sparta that Athanaikos is dead, and flies into a mad rage. When he recovers, he gives orders for the army to continue on to Athens, and he himself heads back to the army at Corinth. There Iphitos is brought to him, and he keeps him in case he can get any useful information out of him.

The Spartan army, headed by Dragos, reaches Sparta, expecting to see the city controlled by the Athenians and King Athanaikos dead. Instead, a combined force of the Athenian army, the Spartan Royal Guard and a small force from Argos, lead by Thanatos and seeking revenge against Dragos, have assembled against him. King Athanaikos meets with Dragos and orders him to lay down his weapons and resign from his position as General. He accuses Dragos of treason. At the mention of treason a madness descends upon Dragos, an affliction which has been troubling him since he burned Argos, and he kills King Athanaikos and a number of his bodyguard before they can even react. The two armies clash and all is chaos apart from two small islands of calm; around Thanatos the Argives stand strong and a small force of Athenians around Aristoxenus. Aristoxenus and Dragos briefly fight each other but soon each of their bodyguards cut them off and Aristoxenus calls a retreat. Thanatos and Aristoxenus take their forces to the Spartan docks of Gytheum and burn the Spartan ships under construction there, before sailing back to Athens in defeat.

Before the battle Dragos makes Iphitos join the reserves. Iphitos wakes the morning after the battle and runs from the field of dead in terror. He reaches a crossroads and wonders where he should go. One path leads to Argos, a city from which he has already run, one to Corinth, which he has also run from, and another to Megara. Iphitos decides that the road to Megara would provide him with the least shame and would also lead him to Adrastos and Galen or Lady Eleni, who he believes has been kidnapped by the Megarans.

Lady Eleni is, however, not in Megara. She is in Athens on a mission given to her by her father, who was in turn hired by an Athenian senator known as Tamaerus. The mission is to kill the senator Artemios and his entire household. Artemios is a very old friend of Aristoxenus and was also once a friend with Dragos. The death of Artemios would become a catalyst for many events. When Artistoxenus arrives in Athens he grieves for the loss of his friend and Thanatos becomes annoyed at his sudden inactivity, brought upon by his grief.

Outside of Corinth the Spartan and Corinthian armies wait. The old general, Kleomenes, itches to revenge his son, who was killed by the Corinthians. He plans to kill Nicodemus or die trying. He dies trying. Back in Sparta Dragos celebrates his wedding with Lydia, a woman who is the only person able to calm him when his fits of rage strike. The Spartan army leaves the walls of Corinth and a Megaran army arrives in its place. Nicodemus chases it back to Megara just at the onset of winter. The Spartan army outside of Athens quits the city too and a period of peace descends, at least in the field.

Thanatos becomes ever more annoyed that Aristoxenus remains grieving rather than acting and writes a letter to King Aristippos requesting an army. King Aristippos has become slightly unhinged after the burning of Argos and orders mercenaries to be assembled and the city is placed under martial law. Reconstruction is halted and the city falls into further disease and depravation as its King fails to act. Thanatos realises that something must be done and begins to contemplate removing Aristippos from the throne.

Iphitos reaches Megara and, for the second time in his life, (literally) runs into Adrastos. Adrastos takes Iphitos to his temporary accommodation where Galen waits. Iphitos cooks for Adrastos and Galen. While out buying vegetables and other supplies, Iphitos eavesdrops on the gossip of the market place and discovers the whereabouts of Lady Eleni and her father's household (without realising that Adrastos and Galen are looking for the exact same place).

Right. Nicodemus arrives back at Corinth to find that the Politician, Hecateaus, has done a deal with the devil, as it were. He has let Megaran soldiers occupy the city and depose the King. But luckily the Corinthian captain of the ROYAL guard, Aeneas, gathers men up and holds the acropolis and protects the King, meanwhile Nicodemus and his army arrive back in Corinth to find out what has happened. The Megaran Commander, Narcissus, lets slip that Hecateaus is their ally. Nicodemus tortures and executes Hecateaus and thus finds out about whom is behind this whole plot, Otis.

General Thanatos returns home to Argos to find the city manned by mercenaries, the King seems to have forgotten his people and lost his mind. Thanatos meets withy the King, and in this meeting usurps the Power of the King, but he lets the King die with honour. He commits suicide.

In Sparta Dragos becomes the new Spartan King, and throws away the dual kingship. He marries and is getting used to his powers, he meets with his spymaster and finds out the news from all over Greece, one of Polites' (the spymaster's) agents steals an important document from Otis, but an agent of Otis tracks her down and kills her. back in Sparta Dragos meets with Eleni, and his tempted by her, unfortunately for Dragos he is caught going downstairs by his wife, who is not happy. This irritative him and seals a dislike of Megara that is furthered when Polites tells Dragos of how Eleni is to blame for the murder of his old-friend Artemios. He decides to turn on Megara, he sends 300 men disguised as mercenaries along with an offer of alliance to Nicodemus, and personally rides with supplies to Argos, to meet the new ruler. In a tense confrontation they agree with an alliance on Megara for the time being, and Dragos swears he will never march on Argos again.

In Athens, Aristoxenus finds an old slave of Artemios who witnesses the murder. Spurred on by this he abandons his duties as a strategos and rides along with Damon and two Spartans named Orthaeus and Python to Corinth to seek aid from his old ally Nicodemus and try and find the killers of Artemios. Along the road he meets Iphitos, Adrastos, Myrto and Galen who have had many adventures in Megara, culminating in the finding of the body of Polites' agent, to which Myrto has led them, and the secret note. These lot help Aristoxenus kill off a Megaran patrol sent to find them. From there they travel around Megara and arrive outside Corinth, which is under siege by the Corinthian army after Megarans took control. Aristoxenus, Galen, Orthaeus and Python join with Nicodemus to aid in the fight while Adrastos and Iphitos await outside the walls with Lyra and Myrto.

After much fighting the Megarans lose control of Corinth and during the fighting Nicodemus sends his man Lysander to strike down King Appolonius. After the fighting Nicodemus takes control of the city. Outside the city Adrastos becomes impatient and worries that Aristoxenus has been killed. He leads Iphitos and Myrto to Argos but Lyra elects to stay behind and wait for Aristoxenus. Aristoxenus, however, forgets about her.

Soon after Aristoxenus left Athens an older strategos named Demetrios returns from fighting in the east. Demetrios expects power and fame when he returns but instead the first news he receives as he steps off his ship is that his wife has died. Being well past his prime the senate elect to replace Demetrios with a younger strategos with only minor acknowledgement to Demetrios’ achievements. Demetrios rages and, in a bloody coup, overthrows the senate. He sends out men to find the only man he still sees as a threat to his power; the wayward Aristoxenus.

In a classic Aristoxenus/Nicodemus personality clash Aristoxenus baulks when he discovers Nicodemus’ plot to take power in Corinth but Nicodemus dismisses Aristoxenus because he has lost any standing within Athens.

In Argos Otis wanders the streets with his daughter Eleni. She becomes impatient with her father for not proceeding quickly enough with the task they have arrived to carry out in Argos (kill the last remaining man who knew of Otis’ plot to kill Aristippos). Otis becomes angry, revealing his double-sided and violent nature and Eleni lies beaten in an alley.

That night, Iphitos, Adrastos and Myrto arrive in Argos too. Fearing that Aristoxenus had been killed in Corinth they had left Lyra behind to wait for him. Death nearly does befall Aristoxenus as men arrive in Corinth from Athens to kill him. However, they fail in their task.

Iphitos leads Adrastos and Myrto to an old friend of his whose house they are able to stay at for the night in Argos. Inadvertantly, Iphitos leads them to the man Otis is hunting. The trio arrive just as the assassins do and witness the killing of Iphitos' friend. Seeing Otis, Adrastos follows him through the streets in an attempt to kill him. Eleni, who has been shadowing her father with a mixture of guilt, hatred and daughterly obedience, spies Adrastos following her father through the streets and tackles him to the ground. Recognising the man she knows as Pan, Eleni becomes welcoming and offers Adrastos food at the place she is staying at. Adrastos, who has recognised Eleni as Otis' daughter and sees her as bargaining power, agrees. The pair arrive back at Eleni's humble residence and, during a romantic moment, Adrastos knocks Eleni out with a metal fireplace stoker and carries her back to Iphitos and Myrto.

In Sparta the Spartan King Dragos finds it necessary to drink heavily when he discovers his wife is pregnant. He receives news from Dromichetes that Aristoxenus has agreed to a meeting to discuss an ending to the war and prepares to march to Argos where Thanatos will host the congregation.

In the Athenian underbelly Tamaeros meets with a secret and mysterious council of rich and influential Athenian men. They discuss the latest political happenings and draw up plans to overthrow the tyrant Demetrios. Tamaeros makes plans to track down Aristoxenus to aid in the removal of Demetrios with the intention of finding Otis if he cannot find - or is too late to meet with - Aristoxenus. The council discusses the possibility of calling for aid from a foreign power…

Nicodemus receives news of the meeting to take place in Argos but decides not to attend. Instead, he sends Pylades, Lysander and Arrichion in his place. The delegates arrive in Argos and the meeting gets off to a shaky start with all attendants bickering heartily.

Outside of the acropolis, Adrastos interviews Eleni – who has rejected her abusive father – and discovers that Otis has planned to sabotage the meeting in some way. He rushes to the acropolis but is denied entrance until it is too late. On the acropolis, inside the room in which the delegation is meeting, agents of Otis attack and succeed in injuring Thanatos. When the room is set on fire Arrichion and Pylades climb out the window up to the roof while Dragos carries Thanatos into a secret passage. Once in the passage the group split again because Thanatos is unable to continue. Dragos, Aiolos, Aristoxenus and Lysander continue down the passage to bring back help for Thanatos. As they near the end of the passage they smell smoke and realise that they have no escape. Desperately they charge out of the passage and are disarmed by the men waiting there for them. Chrysander and Alektruon lead the assassins.

Orthaeus, Python and Pylades make a desperate rescue attempt through the passage and are joined by Arrichion and Polites from the roof but they are quickly disarmed too and Python is killed. Their situation looks dire but not nearly as dire as the situation brewing in Sparta…

Lydia, leading lady of Sparta and bearer of Dragos’ child, is relaxing in a bath unaware that in the very next room her handmaid lies dead and outside her door the guards too sleep the eternal sleep…

The story continues…
