The player steps into the sandals of a Roman prefect sent forth by the emperor to recover the missing pieces of a mysterious artifact. Along the way, wave after wave of the empire’s enemies attack the desperate search party. The Romans didn’t send you out empty handed, though—drawing on small groups of elite troops and the best siege engines the imperial engineers could design, it’s up to you to plan and execute the optimal defense. And when all else fails, you can call upon magic to save your loyal soldiers.
Can you utilize strategic advantages to defeat enemies against overwhelming odds?
Can you stave off the best warriors of Gaul, Carthage and Egypt?
Will you recover the artifact before it’s too late? And just what powers will be revealed once it’s fully assembled?
