Historical period and game goal

Roman empire map.jpg


The goal of the game is to make your dynasty survive throughout the roman empire starting from the year 557 BC until 496 AD.

To be able to make your dynasty survive it is necessary to make the right decisions by avoiding that one of the 16 indicators of the kingdom reaches a negative value. When this happens the ruler is deposed and, if you have enough dynastic points (100) the game can continue by electing a new ruler otherwise the game ends.

Description

An epic turn-based conquest and strategy war game set during the years of the glorious Roman Empire.

Hail Caesar! Your legions await you to conquer the world and lead Rome and your dynasty to eternal glory.  A war is imminent.

Transform Rome from a small city-state in the heart of the Italian peninsula into the greatest civilization the world has ever seen. Lead your legions in epic battles against every kingdom and civilization that dares to wage war on the Roman Empire.

Upgrade the strongholds of your empire to defend yourself against the warriors of enemy civilizations who will besiege Rome in an attempt to bring down your kingdom.

Survive the challenges that, throughout history, have shaken the power of Rome by breaking up the empire: plots and betrayals, wars and barbarian invasions, riots, and coups d'état.

Caesar Augustus, rewrite the history of the Roman Empire and prevent its total fall.
