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.
