General Marcus Ulpius Trajan Rome is on the brink of Civil War! General Marcus Lepidus has broken with the Triumvirate and claimed all of Hispania and Northern Africa for himself. He has established a base of operation at Nova Carthago and is hiring mercenaries from Hispania and North Africa while raising New Legions as well. Marc Antony is engaged against fierce opposition against the Parthians in the East. Caesar has committed most of the remaining Legions to the North to quell the Britainic Uprising. Rome tasks you to establish a City just North of the Ebro River in Hispania. The river will offer you a strong defensive line. Securing the bridges should buy you time while you raise Legions to combat Lepidus's onslaught. Our spies estimate that General Lepidus's forces will be upon you by 6AD. While the first assaults are estimated to be light, excpect them to increase in intesity and force. Lepidus is excpected to be at full strenghth by 12AD. Intelligence estimates his final strength at 8-10 mercenary Legions and 6-8 Battle hardened Roman Legions, along with numerous siege engines. You will also be called upon to supply Caesar and Antonys' forces with weapons and Armor. If Lepidus's forces break thru at Trajanus He will swing East then down thru the heart of Italia and descend upon Rome itself! General Trajan you are Rome's last Hope! HAIL MARCUS ULPIUS TRAJANUS!
