This Scenario is created by Pontius Pilatus AKA Martin Klatt.

I want to extend credits to Joshofet, who was kind enough to test the thing and, after several runs, gave me lots of feedback and useful information to make this a better scenario.

The storyline is about "Hadrian's Wall".

Shortly after the emperor Trajan was succeeded by his ward and heir, Hadrian, work was started at securing the province of Britannia against ferocious barbarians coming from the Scottish Highlands. These untamed Highlanders bravely contested the "Pax Romana", and tried to harass the building of the wall that would stop them from moving freely to the south to claim their "urn of wine" once in a while.

In this scenario, timing is critical. You have ample time to get things in order economically, but military affairs will catch your attention eventually.
Especially after the start of the building of the "Wall" (around 119 AD) invasions of Picts will occur and increase over time, trying to obstruct it. The climax of these invasions will take place around the year 128 AD when the completion of the wall was imminent if not concluded. Make sure you have your defenses in order when the Picts arrive in larger numbers. I suggest a full arrangement of 6 forts with lots of heavily armed and trained legionaires. As the speed of Pictish warriors could be to much for the slow legionaires, I suggest you build a city-wall as well. Remember these guys come from the north mainly, so build your own metropolitan "Hadrian's wall" to do the trick and be safe against all eventualities.

Be wary of your gladiators, they will help you against invaders, but are easily thrown in a revolt of their own. When you least expect or need it they will follow their own destructive nature and wreak havoc in your city.
Make sure you build up trade, especially in the first decade lots of money is to be made from it. Later on taxes will be the key to economic success, as trade revenues will become less reliable.
Load this scenario as saved game.

Don't forget: Picts come from the North.

Thank you Xoria,

Ofcourse I can't predict where you would place your patrician quarters, but I can make an educated guess by playtesting myself for a few possibles and likelies to make it work.

I am glad it worked in playing practice, this time.

Thanks a lot Darkgreen. I always try to make scens with balanced content. Builders and generals must be catered to at the same time, I believe. For that reason I try to put in challenges of al flavours at the same time, which ofcourse can lead to some irritation in both camps. But then again victory will always have that special taste and players tend to remember those kind of scens just because they finally could leave them behind.

Antonius Hadrian Since PP doesn't want to review his maps (hahaha), I will just say that this one is an excellent map for anyone who likes challenges.

LOL, if you keep on reviewing my maps and give all these high scores you did lately, people will suspect you take bribes. No kidding, scores above say 4.0 always make me nervous. And three in a row was just to much for me.
