In our 3 player pbem game Romans put a bounty on Sertorious head and he also achieved alliance with Pontus. But after the alliance event fired (I spend -15 EP) 4-5 turns later -now it is turn 35- there is no increase in ship pool for Sertorious. Will it be later. I plan to conquer remaining Ibericus ports.
Edit: Pontic fleet sails for Sertorius event now fired. Qinquereme ship arrived.
