This is a scenario that goes back to the mythical origins of Venice. You play the people of the Roman province of Venetia, who must rescue themselves and their holy relics from the waves of invasion as the Empire in Italy falls. The challenge is to build a safe haven in the Venetian lagoon before the Roman cities are finally overrun.
This is (hopefully) the first part of a campaign about the history of Venice. My hope is that it's a game that will reward speed and cunning over force. I'm interested to hear comments.
