The Rise of Sulla (revised)

Author File Description
Gordon Farrell
File Details
Minimap:
This is part 1 of a three part series.

Part 1: The Rise of Sulla
Part 2: Sulla at Athenae
Part 3: Sulla Triumphant

The Republic is on the verge of collapse. The recent civil war with the Marians has left Roman citizens divided and disaffected. And to make matters worse, Mithridates VI, King of Pontus, has chosen this time to invade our eastern provinces. The Senate has charged you, Lucius Cornelius Sulla, to raise an army and to proceed with all haste to Achaea. Meet this upstart king on the field of battle and destroy him utterly. But further, you must help rebuild the very fabric of our great nation and leave behind a happy, settled population of no less than 3,000. The details of this difficult mission are in the attached Assignment Briefing, Propraetor Sulla. Proceed with haste. We wish you all luck.

Map plays fine as is

Balance: 3
You have a time limit to complete the map, which is one year greater than the minimum time to complete the map due to the 25 Peace requirement. Space is not convenient on the map as there is a lot of water, and rocks in addition to a ton of natives. This adds to the 3000 population challenge, but with only 30 culture and 15 prosperity ratings necessary, and enough favor to bump off 100 a few times, it really is not well balanced. The military aspect was made much simpler due to the natural tunneling effects of the map geometry.

Creativity: 3
Nothing special, except that this is part one of three in a series of maps. As a "tester" or starter map to the series that progresses in difficulty, it served it's purpose.

Map Design: 4
Very carefully designed.

Story/Instructions: 4

These were fine.

Additional Comments:

The large looping access of immigrants to the large farming area in the East made for a slow climb to the population goal. Expert players would probably do well to skip to the next map in the series.
