Faster build time for high-end structures. The wonders are scattered about, although most are in and around Greece. The mausoleum is particularly useful for Rome, as it is one of the only factions which can construct high-end buildings (those that take six turns to complete). Other factions, like Gaul, do not benefit from this wonder at all.
The Statue of Zeus wonder, also in Greece, is of major strategic importance, as it gives a flat increase to loyalty in every city. Extremely useful for any empire that grows so large that its outlying settlements begin to riot.
|An enemy army is comprised of a couple of armoured phalanxes, a few archers, and a unit of light cavalry. You have four armies available, and each army is made up of a large bunch of ONE unit type. One army has lots of rookie archers, the other has several units of light cavalry, one army has a handful of veteran heavy swordsmen, and one has a single unit of elephants. If you could only use one of your armies, which one would you choose?||Rome: Total Quiz
Swordsmen. There aren't many of them, but they can handle any of the enemy units.. As any Roman general knows, a heavily-armoured swordsman is an extremely useful unit. A single unit of experienced Legionaries can survive very well against all sorts of enemy units. In this question, cavalry and elephants would quickly die on the phalanx' spears even if they charged from behind (phalanxes can turn around surprisingly quickly when attacked), and archers would get mowed down one by one by the enemy's light cavalry. Heavy Swordsmen, however, are armoured well enough to withstand archer volleys and light-cavalry charges, and they can effectively combat phalanxes as well, if used properly. Swordsmen are very weak against elephants and siege equipment however, and against heavy cavalry they will suffer considerable losses or even rout.
|As a Roman general, you will most likely be asked by the Senate to take the settlement of Caralis early in the game. Where is Caralis, in our modern world?||Rome: Total Quiz
Sardinia. Caralis sits on the southern end of Sardinia. as it is quite close to Italy, a swift naval journey can get your forces out there quite early. It usually goes unchallenged for some time, although you must be careful not to get attacked and sunk by pirates on the way. Unfortunately, such remote island settlements grow very slowly, and offer little strategic advantage except as a naval base.
