How many scenarios do you envision the game having?

The opportunity to play both Roman and non-Roman factions is a great new feature. Will there also be multiplayer (pbem) for two human players.?

I expect to have 16 campaign scenarios. I hope to have the same number of land battle scenarios.

When you say land battle scenarios how does that different from campaign scenarios? Are you saying that land battle scenarios only focus on one battle, unlike campaigns which have a series of battles within a strategic context?

These are placeholder graphics, so, yes, they don't look that great.


Actually, those graphics are fine, they have a very Roman "feel" to them, at least in my opinion.

I have been looking forward to this game for years, maybe I will buy it for myself as a birthday gift latter this year.

In a word, yes. The land battle scenarios will focus on one battle and, to be honest, are mostly chrome. The campaign scenarios will be each be roughly like playing "Hannibal." Most of them will last between 20 and 80 turns (5 - 20 years). I want to include at least 3 short scenarios, and some kind of a Grand Campaign. I am still tweaking the scenario list a little, as you can surmise.

That sounds great! Considering that I still play Hannibal every now and then, I imagine getting my money's worth, and then some, from the new game.

Speaking of Hannibal, I'd love to see both the First and Second Punic Wars included. Now I understand that you can't exactly have *every* ancient war in the initial release, but maybe add new ones in separate scenario packs? Ageod did that with their Alea Jacta Est.

See, I'm already confident that this new game will do well enough to warrant expansion packs. No pressure!

Will the war between Queen Zenobia of Palmyria and Rome be one of the campaigns?

I plan to eventually do that with an expansion or an add-on product. That is definitely something that I will want to follow up with.

No.


To be more specific, I'll have to get closer to the finished game before I want to give any estimates of a release date. I haven't been very accurate with that in the past. Sorry.

Outstanding. That was one of the more intriguing Roman wars: a potentially powerful rival to Rome based on the resource rich regions of Asia minor, the Levant and Egypt.

Would this campaign allow for other factions becoming involved such as intervention by the Persians?
