Build a city along the Rhine (seems popular these days)
Brand new map. Scenario based somewhat on Colonia Agrippa but with some changes. Frankly I wanted a map where you don't have to build walls all the way around the city, but make sure you do fortify all entries just in case.
Hopefully you will enjoy this one!!
I have now attached the missing .cs file

Shouldn't that be "Germania"? Germanicus was a person.

Germanicus, the adopted son of the Emperor Tiberius, was named Consul of Rome at age 27. The next year he was sent north to lead Rome's legions against the rugged tribes along the Rhine River.
Since he was the brother of the Emperor Claudius, I just couldn't name the city anything else....*S*

I see where you are coming from now. You didn't mention him in your first post.
Unfortunately for him, Germanicus was never able to bring the rebelling German tribes led by Arminius back under Roman control and fought several bloody battles to no avail with heavy losses on both sides. In several raids he managed to recapture 2 of the 3 Eagle standards lost in the 9 A.D. massacre of three Roman legions.
He was later assigned to Asia where he died under mysterious circumstances.

Sorry about the missing file. I have amended the files in my original post to include it now.

According to "I, Claudius", Germanicus was poisoned by his son Caligula. A somewhat free interpretation of Roman history.
I find it interesting that Germanicus adopted full name is Germanicus Julius Caesar and while he was extremely popular with the people like his name sake, he ran afoul of the movers and shakers of the day, namely Tiberius and Livia much as Julius ran into trouble with the senators of Rome.
Nevertheless, he was the father of one emperor, the brother of another and the grandfather of another. Quite a legacy.
