My new Governor, I command you to set sail for the land of Israelites. When you arrive you must train your legions'. Then you must mount an attack on the mountain of death.
This is no easy assignment; peace is your major objective. The attacks may come from any where as the enemy has allies. Land is readily available. Because of the limited water supply, you area of development is limited. In this torrid land you must form your legions, build your city to support your troops and march to victory. Your mission then is to destroy them all or fall on your sword.
Your reward will be promotion and the gold of the enemy.
A small gift of your loot would be welcome as I allowed you to have the honor of being my general in charge.
