Scenario Instructions Edit
Marc Antony has taken the offensive, crossing the Gulf of Ambracia to shorten the distance between his legions and yours. Cleopatra remains in a defensive posture behind the protection of her Egyptian navy. Should Antony's attack fail, she will probably flee to Egypt where reinforcements await.
- Destroy the Town Centers of the two enemy fortresses and sink Cleopatra's Barge.
There are three enemy forces: Antony (red, Romans), who is close by on the same island as your base. Egypt (brown, Egyptians), who have a base on the southern-most island. And Cleopatra (yellow, Egyptians), who has a stationary navy to the east.
First, deal with Antony. A few Cavalry to deal with ranged attackers, some Long Swordsmen to deal with infantry, and a Stone Thrower for Towers, will be enough to level his base. Go after the military buildings and Town Center first, to cripple him.
Then, train a navy to control the seas. If resources are becoming a problem, transport some Villagers to the island to the west, there's plenty to gather there.
Take your army, replace anything that's lost, and go south to the Egyptian town. Same tactic as before - but since reinforcements would have to travel a long way, it's better to build some buildings on their islands and train the soldiers from there. Either bring a Villager, or convert one.
Once the Egyptian base is down, your land units are useless, so you can kill them if you lack population. Build Triremes, and assault the navy until Cleopatra's Barge is sunk.
