Sphinx has created a masterful city on the brink of advancing to the Praetor ranking. After you download, examine how Sphinx places his warehouses around his markets, how every building is meticulously placed for maximum effect. Housing is at a very high level but there are not many villas since patricians in villas are not part of the work force. Most of the money is made via trade and therefore, the increased taxes from villas is not neccessary. This city will give you an excellent first hand look at the strategies that Sphinx provides in the forums. Above all that, Sphinx offers you a challenge. Can you achieve advancement to the Praetor ranking by the end of the year? I think you can, give it a shot.
