  • King Xerxes! You called for me?
  • Achaemenid Babylon, 485 BCE
  • YEAAAAH!!!
  • Yes, O King of Kings!
  • Yes. Following my father's example, I will fulfill what was denied him, and punish the Athenians for their meddling in Ionia. Send word across our dominion that I plan to gather an army the size the world has never seen before.
  • O Great Xerxes! The greatest Army of Persia is ready for conquest!
  • Four years later
  • Excellent. We shall head for war in the Athenian lands immediately.
  • We have received word the Persians yet again attempt to wage war with us. You Spartans are no longer under  any religious restrictions . Will you join  with us Athenians against  the Persians, Leonidas?
  • Corinth, 481 BCE
  • The forces of Sparta will   fight like the Gods against the eastern invaders alongside your men. We will engage the Persians at Thermopylae, for the terrain is nearly  impassable  for armies.
  • General    Themistocles! The Persians are attacking their own allies in confusion!  The enemy is helping us in their attempts   to retreat!
  • Salamis, 480 BCE
  • Lord Xerxes, our fleet is in disarray in the narrow strait. Admiral Ariabignes has fallen and the Phoenecians are already retreating! 
  • I do not have time to lose battles! The army can't be supplied forever, and I don't like being this far from the Persian mainland for this long!
  • Salamis,   after the battle
  • General    Themistocles! The Persian numbers  were ineffective in the straits!  The enemy retreats   like  babes before the tide!
  • Lord Xerxes, our numbers are useless in these confines. The Greeks have forced a retreat from all our forces! 
  • These Greeks are becoming    VERY annoying! I will not fail my father Darius in the conquest of those who supported the Ionian rebellion!
  • Athens,  479 BCE
  • ...And the Persians have left the heart of Greece entirely!  We will move to relieve  Ionia, Macedonia, and  Thrace from Persian tyranny, but for now, rejoice in our victory!!
  • Keep fighting! Use their fear to our advantage and win the war!
  • These Greeks need to burn like their beloved Athens!
  •    Let    this   be a lesson to the Persians, that they shall never take Hellas! 
  • The Persian Empire cannot be denied by a group of cities!
