Scenario Instructions Edit
Rome is near its maximum in territory but the empire is beset on many sides. The Alemanni tribe has crossed over into Italy and must be driven out. The Goths have invaded the Balkans. The Palmyrans, once trusted allies, have rebelled and taken most of our eastern provinces under their control. Defeat the northern frontiers of the empire while destroying the Palmyrans and restoring the East.
- Destroy the Palmyrans (red) while not losing any of the three Town Centers that begin play on the map.*
*There is a bug which causes the player to lose if they lose a Town Center, even if it wasn't one of the original three.
There are three enemy teams on the map: Queen Zenobia (red), Goths (yellow), and Alemanni (brown), all Palmyrans. Only the first one must be destroyed to complete the scenario. While it's quicker to go for the red base, it's more risky if your attack fails, so taking out the two other teams first is safer.
Build up military buildings on both your islands. All three enemies rely on archers, so use Cavalry - or, if you find yourself low on gold, Scythe Chariots will do. Those forces, and some Catapults to deal with buildings, is all you're going to need.
WARNING: DON'T EVER BUILD ANOTHER TOWN CENTER! YOU WILL LOSE IF YOU BUILD IT IN WRONG PLACE (EX. IN ENEMY BASE)!
