First Century A.D.: Merchants broker the resources that the Senate relies upon to complete civic projects. Those that support the Senate over the next five years will gain special favor in the eyes of the senators.
Arriving ships deliver resources to the merchant players. After buying from and selling to competing merchants, players attempt to donate the goods the Senate is most eager to acquire. However, the needs of the Senate change from year to year. In Ostia, players must judge when is the best time to provide goods to the Senate. But, players must sell goods to obtain the income necessary to obtain more resources. Beware: the Roman Senate watches to make sure that no one uses more resource types than they should...
Will you be clever enough to become the favorite of the Senate? Your ship awaits!
