Agh, damn sand, it's everywhere ...
Oh, excuse me sir ... are you the Quaestor?
My name is Decimus Tullius Lupus and I'm a messenger from Roma.
Please forgive my foolish language, I have a letter for you.
It was entrusted to me, for delivery, by a friend of yours - Censor Servius Lartius Bestia.
Now if I may be excused I will be leaving ... (damn sand)

"Dear Vibius,
By Jupiter, I don't know what have you done to deserve an assignment such as this, but maybe it is better that way ...
I don't know if you are aware, but in the capital here we have a political quake, and I'm afraid for the future of our endearing Republic. Gnaeus Pompeius had been sent to dispose of the pirates in the Mediterranian sea, and I guess, you, my friend, were caught in the middle of these events.

I feel uncertainty about the official word from Roma, as sandstorms are said to be common in that part of the Empire, so I will brief you on what I know about your assignment.
I've been told Tarsus is a desolate place, dusty and inhospitable, but it is of a economical importance. Many caravans pass through there, and the good access to the sea provides ample opportunity for trade. It was discussed, and agreed upon, to establish a trade post at that location, not a simple port, but a small prosperous town. Ironically, you being so young, will decide if Rome's coffers are full or empty.
Your abilities, as a magistrate, are going to be tested while managing that harsh, arid patch of land. Reading reports from the war effort left me with an impression, that you will have to plan and build a city on uneven terrain - dunes, and more dunes. This, for sure, will force you to consider carefully your water system, since unhampered construction of aqueducts won't be possible.

I'd forgotten to tell you that, it seems there are no military movements around Tarsus, and I think you shouldn't worry about invasions.
I will pray to the gods for you, my friend.

Long live the Republic!
Servius Lartius Bestia."

Senseisan A map of interest , whith some problems to solve , I tried it whith the added criterium of setting all houses on the plateaux . Obviously , the main problem was labor access !
I reached 100-100-66-100 whith 6000 inhabitants in two loops of long walk .

Hope you enjoyed it. My first idea was to put the population requirement at 8500 but even if it's possible it would so tight squeezed it would have required much micro-management. So I decided to lower it at half, and give the player some space to breathe. When I tested it, I finished in 16 years with 85 culture and 92 prosperity. :)

I really would be interested to see your setup of this one, the positioning of your city mostly. If you'd be so kind, would you send it to me?

Point taken. I'm working on another map, and it is somewhat finished. But as I do quite a lot of research for the story, and still I have to test it, it would be some time now before it is available.
