You are Propraetor Lucius Cornelius Sulla, and you have just smashed the invading army of Mithridates VI in Achaea. However, your mission in the east is not yet completed. Roman intelligence sources tell us that the King of Pontus is mustering yet another large army and will launch a counterattack soon. You must marshal the resources of Achaea and prepare to meet him. In addition, we in the Senate have a further request. Appalled at the horrible state to which Athens has been reduced in these wars, we charge you to rebuild this once-glorious center of classical culture and science. The specifics are contained in the attached Assignment Briefing. Familiarize yourself with them, Sulla, and prepare for the worst.
