Alexandria

Alexandria Minimap

Empire Campaign - mission 2 (economic)
Start date: February 23 AD
Map size: Large (512x512)
Region: North Africa

Introduction

Plebs beg for bread. Equites expect bread and vegetables, and let's not even get into everything that Patricians demand. It's proving to be quite tiresome. So, Governor, you shall travel to Alexandria in Aegyptus to ensure that regular shipments of food flow from the Nile into the Empire's eager granaries. While the transfer of food is your primary responsibility, it also behooves you to make Alexandria a shining example of Roman civilization.

Building a thriving city will not be easy in the desert climes. Arable land is precious. Make sure that your farming operations are secure. Dipping in to the food intended for Rome from time to time to support your city might be attractive, but be wary of losing a hungry Caesar's favor.
