Cyrenaica: Earning an Imperial Reprieval

"The exiled Marius carouses from the eighth hour of the day and revels in the wrath of Heaven, while you, poor Province, win your cause and weep"

Extremely difficult non-military Citizen level -- Loaded as Construction Kit

City -- Enormous Desert Province
Starting Funds: 2500 dn with no bailout loan from Caesar available

As punishment for being caught in bed with Caesar's neice, you have been exiled to the newly-acquired province of Cyrenacia, bequeathed to the Roman empire by the Egyptians, having themselves failed to colonize this god-forsaken corner of their country. Your mission: to turn this barren backwater of the empire into a fairly-prosperous province. Your property has been sold to raise the funds necessary for you to begin such a Herculean task, and you have been advised by the senate not to waste it, because none of them with donate a cent to your baffling enterprise (for fear of falling out of favor with Caesar----and his neice). And if you can be as successful at plowing the barren sands of this province as you have been at plowing his neice, you just might manage to regain the emperor's favor. Until then, however, you are forbidden to raise an army of any size, and will be expected to satisfy the emperor's frequent requests for weapons, among other hard-to-come-by commodities. You will suffer no invasions while you are in Cyrenacia, since no one seems to want to live in this province anyhow, for it has no valuable resources. The Colosseum has not yet been built in Rome, so naturally you won't be able to build one in your province, so keep this in mind when placing your hippodrome as a third and final entertainment venue. Also, gardens will not grow in this baren soil, so you will have to resort to other means of beautification to make your neighborhoods more attractive to immigrants. Another tool being used by the senate to encourage immigration is the guarantee that no taxes will be collected in your province, so you will be unable to use forums. The highest housing level you will be able to reach is luxury villa, due to the lack of a second type of wine. Finally, there is no ground water to be tapped into, so you will not be able to use any wells.

Divertirti I've tried to play this scenario for several months. It is impossible according to me. The income is only by trade and the expences for salaries are huge as the popultaion grows up.In order to trade you have to import all the raw material (except clay) for yor workshops. It would be more possible if forums were enabled and loan from Caesar presented. If someone has successfully completed this scenrio with these conditions, please post the walkthrough and the map played.
trolgu Without military pressure, the city can be developed very slowly.
My city had almost 2 years less than 200 inhabitants.
Under 200 inhabitants no wages have to be paid and the gods don't get too angry.
However, this requires some micro-management.
Then the exports should be maximized step by step.
If all people are taken care of and happy, the wages can be far below those set by Rome.
Symmachus Hi, I created this scenario many years ago with the intention that it be as punishing as possible (given the nature of the assignment, viz. being exiled by Caesar for fooling around with his niece). I received many similar complaints by players at that time (eighteen or so years ago) but someone did send me a saved file showing a fully-function city that did satisfy the victory condition, so I do know that at least one person did manage to make it work. Glad to see that players are still giving this one a go. It was a fun scenario to design. Eric (aka Caligula)

Hi Eric,
I think you noticed my finished city.

The possible trade income is very well balanced with the wages.
Maybe you should tell the players to be very patient ;)
Divertirti OK. Now, after I saw someone did this successfully, I will give it another try on hard level.
But I am curious to ask the creator of the map :
DID YOU MANAGE TO COMPLETE IT ALL BY YOURSELF ? And why did you make it so hard ? Was it only intentionally on purpose or some of the settings were set like this by a mistake ?

I attained all ratings but favour. Caesar stopped asking me for goods and favour started going down. There was no provision for cannot pay tribute. Finally Roman legions destroyed city. I had 100000 Dn which went to bankruptcy.becuase caesar was not asking for anything and worker shortage was increasing. Other than this there is nothing difficult on map

If we use calary trick in order to win. Give 100 dn per month to yourself and in December change to 0 dn and keep sending gifts to caesar. That's only way to beat level
