It's the year 122 CE and the Roman Empire is at the peak of its glory. Caesar Hadrian is no longer waging war against the barbarians, but building cities and fortifications to ensure a lengthy domination of the Roman culture. The southern part of Britain is under Roman domination, and Caesar has already begun the construction of Hadrian's Wall to protect the empire from invasions from the North. Together with the wall, Caesar has ordered the founding of a new city which will remind the locals of the glory of Rome, and has appointed six of his most trusted men to take resources and workers to build the city - but, in the end, only one will be appointed Praetor and rule the Province in the name of Caesar!
In Praetor, players take on the roles of Roman engineers, working together with to build a magnificent city. You will manage your limited resources wisely and look for new ones, recruit new workers while your old, experienced ones retire, build settlements to keep the population happy, and praise the Gods to earn their favor. Caesar will reward you if you give away precious resources to build Hadrian’s Wall, thus increasing your chances of becoming Praetor.
