This is a sandbox scenario using the Iceni Queen map designed by goonsquad - for those who like the look of the map but don't fancy the military side (for those who do like a military challenge - see the Iceni Queen Sandbox).
This scenario is set in late 61AD following the fall of Boudicca, and the appointment of Julius Classicianus as the new procurator of Britannia, tasked with the rebuilding of Londinium after the Iceni revolt.
Thanks you Angrod for this scenario.
I'll try it and i'll post a review.

I'm not sure if someone will actually read this, since it's been quite a while since this scenario was posted. But I've tried it recently and wanted to share my opinions on it. I even registered to the forum just for the purpose of being able to write a comment down here. (By the way: Please forgive any grammar or spelling mistakes, English is not my first language).
So, I've got 2 points I'd like to mention.
First of all:
I do really, really like this map. It's clean, simple, with plenty of space for your city. But don't be fooled by the simplicity: It's a bit tricky to place a pumphouse by the water (at least where I tried to do that). So it's simple enough for a beginner like me, but not in a way where you need no effort at all.
But here's one negative thing about this scenario:
I'm not sure if it's a bug in my version of the game or if it's actually supposed to be that way. But nearly every 60 seconds a windows popped up that told me about a new request from Rome. Rome needs wool. Rome needs meat. Rome needs even more meat. Rome needs wheat (but guess what, I have none either, because I can't build wheat farms), and so on. It seemed as if Rome breathes and lives solely on what I'm supplying. ;-)
It really annoyed me on some point. So I tried to edit this scenario and reduce the amount of requests. Advice from me to you: Don't do that if you have absolutely no idea how that editor works. This map won't look the same afterwards, even if you could swear that you didn't touch any buttons other than the request related ones. Me for my part, I don't how that happened. Maybe someone will read this and knows how to fix that problem.
Anyway, that's another topic.
Overall I can say:
I would definitely recommend this scenario! I can see that the creator must have invested a lot of time into this (considering how long it must take to tame this monster of an editor). If only there were less requests. That would make it perfect. But either way, I really enjoyed it.
