"We are ready to extend Roman dominance beyond Italia. Your next assignment takes you to Syracusae where you will build a moderate settlement. Locals I hear are not particularly friendly there, but your real military challenge will be to stop a colonization effort from Helvetii tribes invading the area. Also be prepared to aid military operations in Italia."
"The terrain is rough, plan your city layout carefully. Our scouts located iron to the west, farmlands to the north, and abundant fishing grounds to the east. Connect Syracusae to our trading network. I will regularly request weapons, oil and other detachments from the province."
"I have faith in you. Establish our colony at Syracusae and crush the Helvetii invasion."
No wine prevents villas; fishing OK
This scenario is intended to test your skills in building a plebeian city with relatively high prosperity rating, and meeting various logistic challenges. Military action is formidable.
