File:Year of the Four Emperors.png

Year of the Four Emperors is the second scenario of the Pax Romana campaign in Age of Empires: The Rise of Rome. The Romans must defend a Wonder, while replacing an enemy Wonder with their own.

Scenario Instructions Edit

The Emperor Nero has died and left no heir. A number of claimants to the throne have appeared, but the sensible leaders in Rome are convinced that it should be yours. Use your forces to remove the usurpers who have claimed the throne while defending the empire from invaders seeking advantage during this time of turmoil. Place a monument in Rome to mark your ascension to the throne.

Objectives Edit

  • Protect the Blue Wonder.
  • Destroy the Red Wonder.
  • Build a new Wonder where the Red Wonder stood.

Strategy Edit

You start off in the Stone Age with a few Villagers, so train a few more and start gathering, and age up as soon as possible. Send a Villager to the Wonder while you age up, and start building Towers as soon as you can.

There's three enemy forces on this map: Galba (red, Greeks), Vitellius (yellow, Palmyrans), and Otho (brown, Macedonians). All of them are a threat to your Wonders.

Build up until you reach the Iron Age, as there's no reason to attack the Wonder until you can build a new one. You can attack the enemy bases and weaken them - it's not necessary, but every one you destroy means fewer soldiers going after your Wonder. Remember that the Roman Legions are very effective.

When you feel safe, destroy the red Wonder, and start building a new one.
