Scenario Instructions Edit
400 to 300 BC
Rome has broken free from the yoke of Etruscan rule and established itself as an independent city-state. We have many rivals, however, and can expect attacks from several quarters. To maintain independence, we must hold off our enemies and fortify our city.
- Build a Sentry Tower next to each flag.
You start off in the Bronze Age, with a few soldiers and Villagers. Start gathering stone to build the towers, and food, wood and gold to train more units. There are six Roman enemies in the scenario, but you won't have to defeat any of them to win.
There are twelve flags you must build towers next to. Luckily, Romans can build towers at half the price, so you only need 75 stone for a tower - and fifty stone to upgrade to Sentry Tower, for a total of 950 stone. The Stone Mines next to your town won't be enough, so you'll have to look for more eventually, but luckily, there's more stone next to most of the flags.
You'll have to protect the Villagers as they build. The Short Swordsman is the Romans' best unit, so train some.
