you surprised me with your excellent governing skill in the dessert.
Neptune seems to like you and the grand temple you build in his name.
This time, the situation is kinda different.
I sent you to our newly conquered province in Britain. Our geologists report of many natural resources, including Gold and Marble. This will be your chance to show me and the senate that you are truly blessed by the gods.
The land is also rich on farmland and fishing grounds. But the climate does not allow for the cultivation of Vines or Olives.
The people of Britain seem to have a natural rivalry with us people on the main land. So the Senate doesn't allow the trading of wine.
But I, Marek, Imperator of Rome, demand from you the prove, that you are chosen from the gods.
Build me a prosperous city, where even the richest Romans want to live.
And don't forget to send tribute of food, building materials and some of the Gold. And be aware, the Britons are not amused that you are using the land.
If you achieve your goal, we can think about reestablish your name in Rome.
The Grand Temple of Venus provides wine for your rich people.
Near the two invasions spots are settlements of the local barbaric people.
Gold mining takes a lot of workers.
* Thought that the Grand Temple Provides Wine even when there is no local wine.
Thats sadly not the case. SO changed the trading so you can get wines from Import.
Zip includes a easyier version of the map.
Population goal is 6.5k and the trade is increased.
Use the V3 Save for the more beatable approach.
Everything works with no issues. Could even restrict yourself with custom goals.
Economy could be tougher for my taste and military did not feel like a big threat, i like lenient military maps but having extra incentive to make some towers to strain the eco would have been good imo.
Unique design that is not seen in many other maps. Nice use of small terrain brush tool to make the map come to life.
Map Design: 5
Every area has its use and makes sense, mining is restricted but not overly. I would preffer more tactical rocks to force innovation with designs.
Great, gives hints.
I liked the map even though i forgot to pick the right Venus Epiphet. Would play again for a medium map overall. Not a hardcore map but thats ok, not every map has to be insane.

Really enjoyable map, everything went smooth, I played V3 in Hard mode.
Too many options for trading: marble, gold, weapons.. I completed the game with more than 200k but maybe in the hardest version it's different.
Military is ok but didn't gave me emotions.
I liked the idea to have just a native trade center in the north and many small ones around the map to take care, close to the invasion points.

I really liked the map design, I like the medium/small ones that give you alternatives to build the city.
Good introduction with hints on Military invasions. Much appreciated.
Additional goals (not measurable) would be appreciated.
