Emperor Caligula has instructed me to fill you in on your mission. Because you embarrassed him in front of his admirals with your off-beat rowing,
he is demoting you again and sending you to the outskirts of the empire where trade is at its most difficult, and the tribes are the rowdiest.
You've had meager success in the past, but if you're ever going to obtain a promotion higher than a clerk, you'll need to focus on the early challenges this inhospitable speck of land has for you. Be thankful I was around to talk my co-consul Incitatus the Horse down from a much more severe punishment, something about Logistica Nova. Anyway, don't let me down.
- Probably start taxing pretty quickly
- There are attacks
- Prices fluctuate early
(Insert Playability analysis here)
All worked well
(Insert Balance analysis here)
Economic aspect is the only comfortable thing in this map. Prosperity 90 and population 7000 really pushed the limit. Military was ok with weakest type of enemy. No salary but gift is fine to achieve favor. Space constrain is dreadful.
(Insert Creativity analysis here)
Nice combination of challenges on military, space, favor and prosperity.
Map Design: 4
(Insert Map Design analysis here)
Nice map design with difficult terrain.

Space constrain, no academy, no wheat and desert map remind me of "who is your toga boy" map. Play on Augustus but since food and marble are plenty so not much different compared to vanilla version. Not feeling relax playing this map so probably only recommend for experienced players.
