Alexander the Great's Diadochi

The claimants to Alexander’s lands, known as the Diadochi, are conferring at Babylon to attempt to diplomatically resolve the crisis and avoid a war. Will the Diadochi peacefully resolve Alexander’s succession and expand Alexander’s legacy through new conquests, or will Macedon descend into war?
