Description Edit | History

Between 1500 and 600 BC, Asia Minor and the Mediterranean witnessed the rise and fall of several mighty empires. Often the birth of one empire precipitated the death of another. How could a small people like the Judeans establish an empire when located between such giants as Egypt and Assyria? Why did some Empires endure for centuries while others lasted only a few generations? Chariot Lords shows you the how and why.

Each Lord controls between 5 and 6 nations, some strong, others weak, each with varying goals and objectives - indeed some of these countries may not even exist at the same time. Players compete against one another to achieve the victory criteria for their empires. Nations quickly become rivals, involving them in death struggles over expansion. Each turn (90 years) will see new countries come to the fore, while established empires struggle to levy reinforcements and arrange alliances. A fine line must be walked between conserving one's forces and expanding one's empire. Too much expansion will see your resources spread thin and possibly swept away by a new emerging empire, but not enough aggression will see your empire fail to garner sufficient victory points to win.

Armies are of a mix of foot and mounted units, along with the occasional leader of note. It is not enough to conquer -- you must be able to keep what you have taken. The winner will be the one who has the most victory points after all the armies have had their moment on the stage. It is up to you to determine whether your empire will be relegated to the dustbin of history, or whether others will hail you as...The Chariot Lord.

1 The Chariot Lords sheet
This file allows you to keep track of all points scored, providing overview of all current and possible future points. Next, per nations specifics are given, like starting and replacement areas, which new units arrive when and who wants to kill units from that nation. 2 more overviews give details who wants to kill who and all details per region on the map. Finally it features an interactive map of the game, which gives insight in what happens in each region on the board per turn - adjusted (if wanted) to reflect the already achieved or impossible goals. Have fun!

5 Chariot lords core rules spanish.pdf
There are the "core rules" of Chariot lords, without historical ambientation text. I believe this rules would be more comprehensible that the original translation :)
