"Italia has been united under Roman rule. Your next assignment takes you to our northern border and beyond. Starting at Mediolanum, you will lead an expedition to the Alps, cross it, and establish a prosperous city in Gaul."
"Proceed with caution in the mountains. The local barbarians are harmless only as long as you leave them alone behind their eternal forests. Enter their territory only after proper military preparation. As fierce as they fight in battle, once subdued, these locals will accept your governance and you can safely settle their land."
"Beyond the Alps you will face a more dangerous enemy. Time your invasion of Gaul carefully, the Gauls are formidable warriors and will not resign their ancestral land easily. Unfortunately, we can not supply your expedition with engineers and masonry equipment. Without walls and towers, you will have to rely on your standing army.
"We have faith in you. Cross the Alps and establish Roman presence in the province of Gaul."
