The many city-states of Italy have flourished and grown rich thanks to prosperous trades. The wealth is too big of a temptation for their neighbors to pass up. Each city-state is jealous of the other, but a weak national army requires them to call in reinforcements. Known as the Condottieri, these mercenaries are ready for battle. March your army to a new region and carefully manage their strength to win the battle and establish control around Italy.
