Just recently, our scouts have stumbled across a mysterious patch of fertile lands rich with natural resources. Being one of our best governors in the empire, you have been chosen to develop this newfoundland to enrich our great empire even further.
You will be very pleased to know that I have already sent some of my engineers to clear a path through the rocky mountains. I have also instructed them to flatten the river banks so that you will have an easier time arranging sea trades and fishing. The abundant funds given to you shall be more than enough to clear the dense forest ahead. You can thank me for that later.
Now the not so good news - our rivals have also set their sights on this land and will spare all their might to get ahold of it. Beware of their large numbers and do not rely solely on the natural terrains in the north to protect you.
*First time making a map, but if it is too difficult or easy just comment as freely as you wish below.
**It is not a realistic map, but if you wish to create the ideal city, the flatlands should be very pleasing to you.
***You can assume the timeline for this scenario as 60 years - that means the worst and nasty surprises will come at the end of 50-60 years
****i just realized the trade routes arent ideal... and not enough timbers, my bad
