You have been ordered to Arabia Petraea by the new Emperor, the decidedly unpleasant Caesar Commodus. He has charged you with building the city of Bostra, which is to be the capital of that province. Trade will be the key to your success, but therein lies a major problem. Strange and lurid tales have been told of this place - of the mysterious artefacts floating in the pool, and why the land adjacent to it is so fertile - not to mention the unpleasant odor all around. Traders are (not surprisingly) reluctant to come to Bostra. But Commodus has ordered the governors of other provinces to send their traders here, regardless of their fears. Not wishing to directly go against Caesar's wishes, each governor is now busily thinking up excuses as to why they can't trade with you just yet. Commodus expects you, as governor of Bostra, to overcome these obstacles.
The anxiety of your citizens must also be allayed, for such a bizarre land is bound to make them feel a little edgy, and prone to random acts of destruction. Therefore, says Caesar Commodus, you must make your city the most beautiful the Empire has ever seen, for beauty will bring peace of mind to all. He has assigned a special beauty advisor (whom some claim to be a direct descendant of Caligula). Good luck!

I was reading through the comments about this game and I have the same glitch as another person. I also cannot open or place arenas, coloseums, or the circus. I have had as many as more than the required number of people to win the game and still not been able to have access to them. When I read that the circus should open when you have 4000 people I figured I had a problem. I currently on this attempt have more people than that. You said you made a fix for that man. Could you also help me out. I really love this game and I would love to win it. Obviously that is impossible with the current problem.

Ahh, I found the patch. I downloaded it. Now I just hope it works, or that I did it right. Back to try, try again. Thanks again. Are you the writer of this game, and just changed your name?
I love the user created scenarios. Lots of fun after playing all of the campains that came with the game.
