The Empire


Jul 12, 2005
This is a fictitious scenario I have invented which is reminiscent of the Fall of Rome Conquest, except this time you're controlling the Empire.

Playable Civs:
The Empire (like Rome; expansive but next to no production due to terrible corruption)
The Allies (smaller territory than Empire but less corruption)

CPU Civs:
Southern Barbarians (Goksoi, Aparoi)
Northern Barbarians (Khedazoi, Dhghbhloi)

The barbarians are all generally equal in power and begin on their own islands.
There are a number of minor rule changes:
1. Settlers cost no population.
2. There are a number of new units including Raider (barbarian civs only); Garrison (= Pikeman, Empire & Allies only); Protector of the Empire (= Crusader; Empire only) and Allied Rider (= Sipahi, Allies only).
3. The scenario is only designed to last the Middle Ages.
4. All units are now free in all governments; Republic is now Empire with Rampant corruption; Monarchy also has Rampant corruption.

I made this because when I played the Fall of Rome scenario I was annoyed that I couldn't be the Empire; this now gives you the chance to do that! :king:

It will be a struggle to fight off the endless troops of barbarian states, but once they have been destroyed on your continent, it will only take a short time to build up an army and destroy them forever! :D (There's only Conquest victory.)

The barbarians get the first turn, but the Empire and Allies begin with 2 leaders, so armies should rule the roost. Remember that the barbarians don't begin with any cities, so if you destroy all their settlers they've basically lost!

This is just a quick game, if you're looking for something more extensive then please try my Union of Italy or Peloponnesian War scenarios! :)

There is actually a scenario (Rome Everlasting) that allows you to play with Rome on the Fall of Rome... but it's terribly difficult.

Can you post some screen shoots, please?
Screenshots coming up...

Hope this helps give an idea of the scenario. I'd love to hear from anyone who has played this scenario; it can produce some interesting gameplay.
