Hi guys, This is the scenario I made of Birgantim (modern A Coruña) that served as port to Lucus Augusti. It is quite accurate, fully playable with no detected errors, and balanced forces so it's fun to play with both armies. I hope you enjoy. Please comment and feel free to include it in future releases of the game or give any advice you believe would improve the gaming experience. Cheers!

Historically the Celtic settlers of Brigantium did not offer resistance to the Roman contingent, whereas in the interior the conquest was not completed until the times of the emperor Augustus. Later, Brigantium become Portus Magnus and the Tower of Hercules (oldest lighthouse of the world still in operation) was build in it. Situation: The bulk of the legion commanded by the legate Julio Cesar, has entered the interior of Gallaecia with intent to subdue the natives. It will not be easy for the Romans. Will the Artabros also rise against occupation on the coast? Factions: 1. Incarnate the Celtic tribe of the Artabros from their settlement in Nostian, being also able to control easily a port of the settlement of Elvina: -Let us expel the invader! Let us wash down the sacred oaks with their blood! Let us return their bones to the sea! Under the light of the moon we will celebrate with mead their defeat! Our mothers and women will rejoice, and our daughters will compose songs of this day! Oh, free people! This is our home! 2. Take the command of the Roman detachment emplaced by Julio Cesar to incorporate this enclave to the glorious Roman Republic: -It's time to get this port out of the darkness! The Carthaginians defied Roman hegemony and bought their stall, before testing our iron! And these wild barbarians will also succumb! Today his pillage is over! Tonight their women will serve us in our beds! Roma invicta!
