Odenathus vs Persians is the fourth and last scenario of the Enemies of Rome campaign in Age of Empires: The Rise of Rome. The Palmyrans must face the Persian armies on the battlefield.

Scenario Instructions Edit

The Emperor and the main Roman armies are busy defending other frontiers. They are relying on you, Odenathus, Prince of Palmyra, to defend the East. Persians are besieging the city of Edessa and have captured other towns nearby. You are to drive the Persians from the area.

Objective Edit

  • Destroy the Persians.

Strategy Edit

You start off with a small base, protected by Slingers and Bowmen, and two small gathering bases near the center of the map - one Granary with Berry Bushes, and one Storage Pit with Gold and Stone Mines.

Persia (red) have two bases, both somewhat large.

The Walls and Towers will protect your base for now, so split your troops between the two outposts, and build some military buildings here while you train more Villagers. The Palmyrans have good archers, so train some Composite Bowmen as soon as possible. If the Persians use lots of Cavalry, train Camel Riders, but if not, save the resources.

Your Composite Bowmen, plus some Stone Throwers or Ballistas, will be enough to take down the enemy if you act quickly. Make sure the first base is destroyed before moving on to the next, and victory will be yours.
