Alanicus, still in Egypt, appeals to the Province of Judea to join his cause. A large bribe is paid and the Province flocks to Alanicus with open arms, Alanicus is taken a back by the warm reception and his assault forces are told to stand down.
This month sees the Province of Macedonia start to turn into a walled fortress, as more and more border defences spring from the nowhere. Garrisons start to appear also in Macedonia, safe guarding the route to Alanicus's Capital in Thrace. All this new development leads to a timber shortage in the Province.
