Hints & Tips
As with Caesarea, be patient and build the city slowly, and the low export income won’t translate into major problems.
There are 4 packs of wolves in Londinium. Surround them with aqueducts in the beginning, and deal with them later with a javelin unit.
This being a northern province, you have no fire risks to worry about, so keep the people in good mood, then you won’t need to build prefectures.
The enemy’s homeland is nearby, therefore you will have less warning time than usual. The Celtic invasion forces are very strong, so have your troops ready, and be prepared to take some losses. The final invasion (for me, October 63 AD) occurs roughly 30 tiles further north than the normal invasion point. It is a large force, so watch out.
Other than that, there is really not much that’s new in Londinium. You simply must put into action everything you have learned, and do them all to near perfection, all at once. Good luck governor!
