Metaurus River, 208 to 207 BCE
Hannibal is at the gates! Though the Carthaginian general and his savage mercenaries lack the strenth to take Rome itself, they have set the italian countrysiude aflame and have defeated every legion sent against them for the past ten years. Now, spes tell us that Hannibal has sought out his brother, Hasdrubal, who has slipped our grasps in Hispania and crossed the Alps just as Hannibal did a decade ago. If Hasdrubal's army is allowed to join Hannibal's, Rome would surely fall to the barbarous Carthaginians! Go now, Consul of Rome, divide our enemies and conquer them!
- Friendly Roman villages lie beyond the rivers. They will help you if you find them.
- Hannibal has a foothold to the east. An aggressive strike against this base will give you additional space and access to more resources.
- Shallows are important strategic positions to hold.
