                                    Overview
  ===========================================================================

    Zeus is similar to Pharaoh, but it's not the same.  In Pharaoh, you had
    a list of Scenarios that you had to go through one at a time.  Zeus
    has a slightly different method.  Zeus has Adventures.  Inside each
    Adventure are Episodes.

    The first Episode of an Adventure may go a little bit like the following:

    Your goal is to have a population of 1500, and 250 of them must be living
    in homesteads.

    The second episode would involve you making the city a little more
    developed.  Usually, this will require you to either build a
    Sanctuary for a god or set aside an amount of goods for an upcoming
    colony.

    The next episode will let you build that "upcoming" colony.  You get to
    start a new city from scratch.  You'll still have to meet goals here.
    You may have to build a Sanctuary, slay a monster, or fulfill a Quest.

    The next episode may involve you expanding your city's borders.  This may
    involve you attacking a rival, and taking the city.

    One major difference between Pharaoh and Zeus is the amount of money you
    have for each episode.  In Pharaoh, there was a fixed amount.  In Zeus,
    you get whatever you have left from the previous episode.  This can be
    a great thing if the previous city allowed you to export a ton of
    profitable goods and allowed you to get a lot of money.  Then again, this
    could be bad if it's the complete opposite, where nothing will turn a
    profit.


  ===========================================================================

  ===========================================================================
                                Building a City
  ===========================================================================

    This section goes pretty much in order walking you through the entire 
    process of building a successful city.  It should be mentioned that 
    building a great city is a complicated process that involves all sorts of 
    things, religion, trade, entertainment, and employment.  There are many 
    problems that a city faces, and those are also addresses in the FAQ.


  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
                            Basics of City Building
  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Building a city is fairly easy.  This section is devoted to the VERY
    basics of doing just that.

    Landscape
    ---------

      There are several features in the vast landscape of Zeus.  They haven't
      changed too much from Pharaoh (the previous City-Building game).

        __________
        Grassland:
        ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
          Grassland is the very basic type of land.  Everyone can cross over
          it, and you can build most structures on it.

        _______
        Meadow:
        ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
          Just like the Grassland, everyone can cross it, and it's able to
          withstand most structures.  The difference is the fact that it can
          support Farms.  Meadows are very important, and building anything
          other than Farms there is just a waste of meadow space, esecially
          as you reach Episodes that require a high population, since you'll
          need to feed the people.

        _______
        Forest:
        ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
          This is quite the opposite of Grassland.  You can't really pass
          through it, and you certainly can't build there.  A Timber Mill
          will be required to harvest the vast amounts of lumber here.
          If you find it nexessary, you can use the "Clear Land" button to
          remove some of the trees.  I must warn you that they do NOT grow
          back.

        ______
        Marsh:
        ŻŻŻŻŻŻ
          People can walk through the marsh if necessary, although the soft
          ground just isn't good enough to support structures.

        ______
        Beach:
        ŻŻŻŻŻŻ
          The sands of the beach shift far too much to support any kind of
          structure.

        _____
        Rock:
        ŻŻŻŻŻ
          There are several different types of rocky formations in Zeus.
          You can cross rocks, although only in the areas where the rocks
          aren't.  There are occasionally narrow paths between the rocks,
          and that is the only route of passing.  You can't build on rocks
          either.

          _________________
          Ore-Bearing Rock:
          ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
            Rock with copper nuggets protruding contains vast amounts of
            copper ore, which can be smelted into bronze at a local Foundry.
            Rock with silver nuggets protruding contains vast amounts of
            silver ore, which could be  converted into drachmas at a local
            Mint.  Drachmas are your unit of currency, by the way.

          _______
          Quarry:
          ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
            Rocks also formed a 'pit'.  You can quarry for Marble by a
            Masonry Shop.

        ______
        Water:
        ŻŻŻŻŻŻ
          Water has a slightly different prupose in Zeus when compared to
          'Pharaoh'.  In Pharaoh, the Nile River was used as a place for
          fishing as well as flooding the river coastline, which would make
          the soil fertile.  This was called inundation (I think was the term).
          In Zeus, it only has one purpose, a place for fish and sea urchins,
          both a food supply.

    Building Things
    ---------------

      If you're new to the City- Building series, I recommend that you read
      this section.  Instead of me copying the section, read your manual
      (pages 24-27).

    Housing/Building Blocks
    -----------------------

      Everyone has their own way of forming their city, but it can be
      helpful to see housing blocks from other gamers.  This allows you
      to better-plan your city.  I would recommend this resource for 
      looking at several high-quality housing blocks:

               http://www.strategyplanet.com/poseidon/blocks.html


  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
                             Population and Housing
  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Populating your city is very important.  After all, you really can't
    have a city without people, can you?  Well, these people aren't going to
    live on the roads, so you'll have to provide them with a form of housing.

    The housing aspect of Zeus is different than 'Pharaoh'.  In 'Pharaoh',
    all you had to click on the Housing Tab, and then the House icon to
    place a lot, which was available to immigrants.  You'd continuoulsy
    provide that house with more and better services, which would increase
    the housing level as well as the population limit for that house.  Well,
    Zeus is the same way, sorta.  The main difference is that there are two
    housing types you have to choose from when placing a lot.  There's the
    Common Housing and the Elite Housing.  You can't start out with the
    Elite Housing, so you would have to build up from the Common Housing.
    Depending on the Episode you're in, the Elite Housing would become
    available at one point.

    Common Housing
    --------------

      This is the basis for your housing in your city.  You can't just jump
      right into the Elite Housing.  Common Housing comes in verious shapes
      and names.  You'll find names such as "Hovel," "Homestead," and
      "Apartment" in this class of Housing.

      As the Housing Level increases, more and better services must be
      provided.  Water and Food are the first two concerns of Common
      Housing.  Fleece and Oil follow.  Fleece is used for clothing, just
      so you know.  Oil (Olive Oil) can be used on someone's body to relax
      them.  It just sooths people's bodies.  If your housing hasn't been
      improving in a while, right-click on the house and you'll get a pop-up
      menu.  The menu provides you with the information on that house.
      Things like the number of residents, how many more people the house
      can hold, the amount of food and other goods currently on hand, and
      what (if anything) is holding that house back from evolving is all
      included in that pop-up menu.

    Elite Housing
    -------------

      For your city to have Elite Housing, you need the basics.  The Elite
      Greeks won't even consider living there if you don't have Water, Food,
      Fleece, Olive Oil, plenty of culture, and good scenery.  You can't
      even build a house if the area is in bad shape (undesirable).

      As with Common Housing, you are required to have more and better
      services if you intend to have higher (in class) housing.  Things
      like Armor and Wine will be required.  Armor brings up yet another
      topic, an army.  I'll discuss this in a minute.

        FAQ: What happens when a house runs out of something?
             Well, it all depends on which item it runs out of.  The
             closer that item is on the "necessity" chart, the lower (in
             class) the house will drop.  Say, you've got a "Residence"
             that has just run out of food.  Well, that house will drop
             ALL the way down.  It's missing one of the VERY first things
             that are required for housing.

    Army
    ----

      Your army is made up of your citizens.  This is bad in a way.  In
      Pharaoh, for example, you had warriors trained specifically for war.
      However, in Zeus, your citizens are given the responsibility of
      fending off invaders.  When you are forced to call your army to get
      ready to fend off invaders, you lose workers.  It depends on your
      current rate of unemployment of whether or not this will create
      havoc for your Industry and Food supplies.  This is the main thing
      I don't like about the game.  I thought that a separate army was much
      easier for the user, and you wouldn't have to worry about unemployment
      and how much food you've got for your citizens.  I hope Impressions
      Games changes this back to the way it was with both Caesar and Pharaoh.

      In your Common Housing, people cannot afford weapons/armor.  So, they
      use the next best thing: rocks.  Yeah, not quite what you hoped for,
      but that's all they have.  They pelt the invaders with rocks, simple
      as that.

      In Elite Housing, people can afford weapons/armor.  So, you will get
      Hoplites from these folks.  For those citizens who are able to afford
      their own horse, they become Horsemen.

  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
                          Husbandry (Food and Farming)
  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    It may just be me, but I find that feeding your people is rather 
    important.  This is why I've dedicated a section for just that.  In
    Zeus, there are a lot of different foods to provide for your citizens.
    Each needs something to be produced, whether it's Goats for Cheese, or
    Onion Farms for Onions.

    There's one huge difference in 'Pharaoh' farming and 'Zeus' farming.
    In 'Pharaoh', there was both a meadow, which required an irrigation
    ditch, and areas along the Nile River to farm.  In 'Zeus', all you get
    is the meadow.  The good thing is the meadow areas are a little larger
    than those in Pharaoh, so it shouldn't be too hard to farm.

      FAQ: Where are the meadows?
           Meadows are the purple-spotted areas.  They look like the purple
           spots that forms along with mold on old bread.  I'm sure you've
           seen a piece of moldy bread, right?  Well, that's exactly what
           the ground looks like, honestly.

      FAQ: I've built farms, and I have a lot of unemployed people.  Why
           aren't my farms up and running?
           Well, you are obviously new to the City-Building series, so
           I'd like to suggest that you purchase the previous games in the
           series.  To answer your question, you MUST have roads leading
           to the farms.  Farms are supposed to be treated just like
           most any other building.

    There are several ways to produce food your citizens.  Each scenario
    (episode) is different, so they vary as to what food is made available.
    Here's a quick run-down of food available, and how it is produced.

      Carrots
      -------

        Yum.  Crunchy carrots are always something people like eating.  The
        people of Greece were no different.  Carrots require a Carrot Farm
        to be produced.  Carrots can be stored at a Granary, Trading Post,
        or Pier.

      Onions
      ------

        Onions require an Onion Farm to be produced.  Onions can be stored at
        a Granary, Trading Post, or Pier.

      Wheat
      -----

        Wheat is harvested in July.  Wheat has two purposes.  One is as food
        for your citizens, and the second is for fodder for your horses.
        Wheat can be stored at a Granary, Trading Post, Storehouse, and Pier.
        Technically, it can be stored at a Horse Ranch, but it's only for
        them to use there, and not to store it for trading and human
        consumption.  Wheat stored in a Storehouse will NOT be used for
        food for your citizens.  Food venders at an Agora will NOT go there
        to pick up food.  Any and all food that you wish to be picked up
        by Food Venders should be brought to a local Granary.  Food that you
        want to be sold (exported) should be brought to either a Pier,
        Trading Post, or Storehouse.

      Grapes
      ------

        Grapes are a wonderful thing.  Dionysus has to be my favorite god
        simply because he's funny to watch.  I mean, they (Impressions Games)
        basically included a drunk God.  Hey, it's true, it's true.  It's
        comical to watch him walk around town.  Heh.  Well, back to the
        Grapes.

        Grapes are made from Grapevines, and you'll need a Growers Lodge
        to prune and harvest the grapes.  Grapes are used to make wine,
        which is something that will improve housing levels.  The workers
        at the Workers' Lodge know how to care for both Grapevines and Olive
        Trees.  Every month, the Growers' Lodge sends out one pruner who can
        care for Grapevines and Olive Trees.

        The more frequently a Grapevine or Olive Tree is pruned, the faster
        it will grow.  If a plant goes a very long time without a pruner, it
        won't grow at all.  This is easily solved with the building of
        multiple Growers' Lodges.  When it's time to harvest, the Growers'
        Lodge will send out a small crew of pruners to gather all of the
        fresh fruit.

        Once a Winery has received a bunch of Grapes, and has a full staff,
        it will begin making Wine, which is another comodity.

      Olives
      ------

        I've already brought up Olives in the above section for Grapes.
        To harvest Olives, Olive Trees are needed.  You must build/plant
        Olive Trees in the meadow.  Olive Trees and Grapevines do have
        one thing in common, once the harvest is done, any unharvested
        produce is lost.  You can't come back and claim it next time.

        Once an Olive Press has received a bunch of Olives, and has a
        full staff, it will make Olive Oil, which is another commodity.

          FAQ: Why isn't my Olive Press receiving olives?
               Well, this could be a number of things.  It could be due
               to a lack of labor at either the Olive Press or the
               Growers' Lodge.  It could also be due to the lack of a
               road.  The Growers' Lodge must have a road connected to it.
               The same holds true for the Olive Press.

               This same problem can also occur at the Winery, which
               takes Grapes and makes wine out of them.

      Cheese
      ------

        Ahh, the power of cheese.  Yeah, being from the Wisconsin/Illinois
        area I hear that phrase quite a bit.  Heck, it's even a sound used
        on the local radio station.

        Cheese is a wonderful food.  To make cheese, you need Goats.  Well,
        you could also use Cows, but we don't have any in Zeus.  :-(

        You'll need to build a Dairy if you want to collect the milk from
        the goats.  You, of course, need milk to make cheese.  A Dairy
        needs to be placed next to a road.  It's also suggested that you
        place the Dairy close to the meadow area where the Goats are present.
        This, of course, saves walking time.  Each Dairy employs enough
        Goat Herders to keep track o several goats.  If you want more goats,
        you'll need to build more Dairies.

        When a supply of milk is brought into the Dairy, it is processed into
        cheese, which is then brought into a Granary, which can be picked
        up by a Food Vendor at a local Agora.  The cheese can also be
        send to a trading facility if you wish for it to be exported to
        another city.

      Pork
      ----

        The only land animal hunted is the Wild Boar.  To hunt Wild Boar,
        a Boar Hunter's Lodge is required.  When a Boar has been killed,
        the hunter will carry the carcass back to the Boar Hunter's Lodge,
        wher it will be dressed and prepared for human consumption.  When
        a side of pork is ready for eating, a deliveryman will bring it to
        a Granary.  It can also be taken to a trading facility if you wish
        for it to be exported.  The Boar Hunter's Lodge MUST have road
        access.

      Fish
      ----

        This one food type that was the same as in 'Pharaoh'.  You need
        to locate a flat piece of land on the coast.  It (Fishery) must
        also have road access.  The Fishery provides it's own boat, so
        give it a minute for the crew to build a boat, and then they'll
        send it out to sea.  Just remember that one Fishery can only
        support one Fishing Boat, so if you need more boats, you must
        build more Fisheries.

        Once a boat has caught its limit, the boat will return, where
        the deliveryman will bring it to a Granary.  Again, it can also
        be taken to a trading facility if you intend to export it.

      Urchins
      -------

        Well, this is certainly new.  Fish used to be the only food harvested
        from the sea.  Getting (Sea) Urchins is the same process as that
        of Fishing.  Find a flat piece of coast, build the Urchin Quay,
        provide road access, and you're off and running.

          FAQ: Why won't my Urchin gatherers gather Urchins?
               Well, this is a number of things.  Be sure you have road
               access to your Urchin Quay.  Be sure you have a full staff
               on-hand.  Also, be sure there is no deep water between
               the Urchin Quay and the Urchins.  The gatherers cannot
               pass deep water!


    NOTE: The items listed below were added in the Poseidon Expansion Pack.

      Cattle
      ------

        Cattle are raised for the tasty meat that they provide.  To place
        cattle in a meadow, you must first build a Corral.  Once the Corral 
        is in place, put some cattle in a meadow.  Some of the cattle are 
        bulls, which watch over the herd to make sure that no wolves 
        attack it.  The rest of the cattle are used for food.  All cattle 
        can be taken by priests for sacrifices.

        Once cattle are fully grown, a rancher brings them back to the Corral
        to butcher them for meat.  When enough mear is ready, a deliveryman 
        brings it to a Granary, or to a Pier or Trading Post if you are 
        exporting the food.

        You don't need to worry about replacing slaughtered animals yourself.
        Calves are born at the Corral and put out to pasture with the other
        cattle once they are old enough.  You will, however, have to replace
        any cattle that is sacrificed to a god.


      Deer
      ----

        In some lands, deer frolic in the fields.  To use these deer for food,
        build a Hunting Lodge along a road.  Once the Hunting Lodge has 
        employees, hunters seek out the deer and bring them back to the 
        Lodge where they are prepared for consumption.  When some meat 
        is ready, a deliveryman brings it to a Granary, or to a 
        Pier or Trading Post if you are exporting the item.

        The Hunting Lodge will automatically send out the right kind of
        hunters for the prey in your city.  If both deer and boar live in
        the city, the same Hunting Lodge will send out both deer hunters and
        boar hunters.


      Oranges
      ------

        Tenders from an Orange Tenders' Lodge see to it that oranges grow
        to be big, juicy, and succulent.  Then, plant some Orange Trees.
        Orange Trees must be placed in a meadow, which is denoted by 
        purple tufts.  After the Orange Tenders' Lodge has employees, 
        the tenders cultivate the fruit until it is ripe.  Then, they 
        pick the oranges, bring them back to the Orange Tenders' Lodge 
        and prepare them for storage in a Granary.  Once enough oranges
        are ready, a deliveryman brings them to a Granary, or to a Pier or
        Trading Post if you are exporting the food.



  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                    Industry
  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    If you are to have a large, thriving city, you must have a strong
    industry.  Industry can make products that you need locally, as well
    as products you can export to other cities.

      Raw Materials
      -------------

        Raw Materials are items that can be taken straight from the earth.
        Two examples would include lumber and limestone.  Below are some
        descriptions of the various raw materials that are available in
        Greece.

          _______
          Marble:
          ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
            Marble isn't the easiesy resource to visually locate, unless
            someone has told you where to look.  You have to look for a
            "flat,whitish-gray rock among the grassland."

            To obtain Marble, a Masonry Shop is required.  Once one is
            running, you'll see a Stonecutter come out and proceed to
            the marble quarry.  He'll then begin cutting some marble from
            the quarry.  Once he's cut a chunk out, you'll see a team of
            oxen drag out a huge chunk of marble.  The marble will be
            taken to the Masonry Shop, where another stonecutter will
            cut it into 8 smaller blocks, which get taken via a team
            of oxen to either a Storeyard or trading facility.  Marble
            CANNOT be taken straight from the Masonry Shop to a
            construction site.  It must first be taken to a Storeyard.


          ___________________________________________
          Black Marble (Poseidon Expansion Pack Only:
          ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
            Black marble is a sturdy construction material that is harvested
            from a black marble quarry.  A black marble quarry looks like
            a flat, dark gray rock lying just underneath some grass.

            To remove black marble from the ground, build a Black Marble
            Workshop.  Once the Workshop has some workers, it sends out
            a stonecutter to chisel out a large block of black marble.
            It it brought back to the Workshop, where more stonecutters
            break the block down into usable slabs.  Once a slab is ready,
            a deliveryman brings it to a Storehouse, or to a Pier or Trading
            Post if you are exploring the good.  If artisans need black
            marble for a construction project, they will get the supply
            from a Storehouse or trade facility.  Artisans never receive
            black marble directly from a Black Marble Workshop.


          _______________________________________
          Orichalc (Poseidon Expansion Pack Only:
          ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
            Orichalc is a rare metal generally found only on Atlantis.
            If you see red metallic nuggets strewn in some rock, you
            can probably harvest orichalc.

            To retrieve this metal from the earth, first build a Refinery.
            Once some of your citizens start working at the Refinery,
            metallurgists emerge from the building and make their way to
            the orichalc deposit.  After they have collected enough ore,
            they bring it back to the Refinery, where it is processed
            for use.  When a load of orichalc is ready, a deliveryman
            looks for a place to bring the metal.  He'll first look for
            a Tower or Firgate Wharf that needs it.  If he can't find one
            of these buildings, he'll bring the good to a Trading Post or
            Pier if you are exporting the item, or to a Storehouse.

            Keep in mind that artisans at a construction site can never
            receive orichalc directly from a Refinery.  Artisans must
            receive their supply of the metal from a Storehouse or trade
            facility.

          ___________
          Silver Ore:
          ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
            Silver Ore is fairly easy to locate.  Look for silver nuggets
            lying amongst rocky outcroppings.

            To obtain the Silver Ore, a Mint is required.  Once a Mint
            received a delivery of the silver, they will begin smelting
            it.  Once that is complete, they will strike the silver.
            The product they have now is called drachma.  They are
            essentially the coins (currency) for the city.  The drachmas
            are then deposited in your city treasury.

          ___________
          Copper Ore:
          ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
            Copper Ore is fairly easy to locate as well.  Look for copper
            nuggets lying amongst rocky outcroppings.

            To obtain Copper, a Foundry is required.  Once a Foundry has
            received a delivery of copper, they will alloy the copper with
            the tin they have on hand.  Alloying Copper and Tin will produce
            a product known as Bronze.  The bronze can be used in the
            prodution of either Sculptures or Armor.

          _______
          Timber:
          ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
            Timber is VERY easy to locate.  If you don't know what a tree
            looks like, you're in trouble, to put it simply.

            To obtain wood, a Timber Mill is required.  Once a Timber Mill
            has a full staff, they will send out a few lumberjacks, who
            will cut down a tree.  Once a tree is down, they will drag the
            lumber back to the Timber Mill with a rope.  Once the Mill has
            a supply of wood, a team of oxen will take it to either a
            Storehouse or trading facility.  Lumber CANNOT be taken directly
            to a construction site.

      Workshop
      --------

        If you are going to make a product you can actually use, a workshop
        of some kind will be in order.

          __________
          Olive Oil:
          ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
            Producing Olive Oil requires a supply of Olives, which are
            grown on Olive Trees and collected by a Growers' Lodge.

            Once an Olive Press has a full staff and a supply of olives, it
            will begin producing Olive Oil.  You'll see the workers busy
            at the press, filling amphorae with the golden liquid.  After
            an amphora is full, it is loaded to a cart and a deliveryman
            takes it to either a Storehouse or trading facility.

          _____
          Wine:
          ŻŻŻŻŻ
            Producing wine requires a supply of Grapes, which are grown
            on Grapevines and collected by a Growers' Lodge.

            Once a Winery has a full staff and a supply of grapes, they will
            crush and forment the grapes.  Once the jugs are full, they'll be
            taken to either a Storehouse or trading facility.

          ___________
          Sculptures:
          ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
            Producing sculptures requires a supply of bronze and a Sculpture
            Studio.

            Once a Sculpture Studio has a supply of bronze and a full staff,
            they will begin sculpting the sculpture.  Once the workers at
            the Sculpture Studio have made a scultpure, you'll see a team
            of oxen drag the scultpure to either a Storehouse or a
            trading facility.

      Industrial Management
      ---------------------

        Your city cannot have a solid industry if you don't have workers.  Your
        industry won't have workers if you don't pay them.  Paying your
        workers is just one facet of running an industry.

          ______
          Wages:
          ŻŻŻŻŻŻ
            You won't get workers if you don't pay them.  Click on the Industry
            Tab.  You'll see the current wage rate and projected payroll for
            that year.  Unlike previous ciy-building games, you cannot choose
            a specific amount for wages.  Instead, there are things like
            "Normal", "Low", "Very High", etc.

          _____________
          Unemployment:
          ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
            Unemployment is an issue that shouldn't be taken lightly.  When
            you have an insufficient number of job openings, your citizens
            tend to get upset with you.  If the unemployment rate gets too
            high, you'll see citizens leaving for the closest city in search
            of work.

            Luckily, unemployment is easy to fix, well, if you have money.
            Unemployment can open up the option of expanding your city.  By
            expanding, you will create more homes, more jobs, and more goods.
            Fisheries or Farms are usually a favorite for solving the problem
            of unemployment, mainly because very few cities produce too much
            food, so a little more won't hurt.  Also, depending on the scenario,
            you may be able to export some of that food.  As I brought up
            earlier, expanding your city will take money, and plenty of it,
            depending on your definition of the magnitude of "expanding".

            Whatever route you decide to take for your city, be sure that you
            supply the city with the proper goods needed to complete the task.
            For example, say you wanted to create a ton of sculptures, which
            could then be exported for a profit.  Without bronze, you cannot
            produce a sculpture, so either you'll have to go make the bronze
            or you'll have to import it from another city.

            Fortunately, I rarelt have this problem.  Unfortunately, it's just
            the opposite of Unemployment.

          ________________
          Worker Shortage:
          ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
            The Zeus manual states "Worker shortages can cripple a city."
            Unfortunately, this is so VERY true.  Say you're right at or near
            0-5% Unemployment, and you've got a relatively small city in
            terms of population.  Now, there's a threat of war.  If you've
            got your military set to "Auto Defend", the troops will be called
            into action one month from the arrival of the invaders.  The
            number of people in your army will be subtracted from the city
            workforce.  You'll get warnings of worker shortages almost
            immediately.  Once this happens, it's safe to say you're pretty
            much screwed, unless you've got a lot of unoccupied housing prior
            to the troops being called into action.

            If you've got extra husing, pray that new people will come into
            the city and move into one of them before they begin fighting.
            'Threat of War' will basically shut down all immigration.

            If you don't have extra housing, you're screwed.  It will start
            a huge chain reaction throughout the entire city.  No food or
            other supplies delivered means no people.  Also, no food means
            that that house's level of evoultion will drop to the very
            bottom.

            Worker shortages indeed can cripple one's city.

        There's one more aspect of Industry that is important.  In fact, it
        can be used to avoid worker problems.  Well, it can't really 'solve'
        them, but it can help things along a little bit.

        This aspect is called Worker Allocation.  Basically, it's a concept
        and game function that allows you to assign a certain number of
        workers to certain types of jobs.  If you are a previous City- Builder
        owner, you already know what I mean.

        The City-Building series has set up jobs in different categories.  On
        page 61 of the manual, there is a picture of what I'm talking about.
        You can set a 'priority' for each job type.  If you feel Husbandry is
        the most important job, set its priority to 'Very High'.  The game
        will recognize this, and make sure to shift workers accordingly.  If
        the city has no worker shortages, this won't change anything really.
        However if you have shortages, the game will shift workers so that the
        job type with the highest priority gets a full staff, and it spreads
        the remainder of the workers accordingly.

        For more information on Industry, view page 63 in the manual.  The
        page features some information on problems in the Industry and shows
        you how to quickly see them and take care of them.


  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
                  Distribution (Locally, Importing, Exporting)
  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Husbandry has brought you food.  Food is now collecting with nowhere to
    go.  Distribution is the next thing that must be done if you intend to
    feed your citizens.  You could make all the food you wanted to, but
    without distribution, there is no way for your citizens to consume the
    food.

      Distribution Buildings
      ----------------------

        You can't distribute food or any other good without a building.  That
        building also needs workers.  So, how many buildings are there?  Not
        very many, but they are essential!

          ________
          Granary:
          ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
            The first deposit of food is usually to a local Granary.  Food
            stored in a Granary will be picked up by Food Vendors, which will
            sell them to the citizens of your great city.

              FAQ: Why won't food be delivered to my Granary?
                   This could be one of many things to be honest.  Be sure
                   your Granary has road access and a full staff.  Be sure
                   that the place making the food has road access and a
                   full staff as well.  Check your settings for your Granary.
                   You may have them set to 'Don't Accept', which will disable
                   the Granary's ability to accept that type of food.

              FAQ: Why don't the roads and houses near the Granary improve?
                   A Granary has a Negative (-) desirability level.  People
                   don't enjoy living near one, so don't build a Granary too
                   close to your housing.

              FAQ: Why does my Granary keep collapsing?
                   Poor maintenance is the reason.  Granaries are fairly
                   large structures, and they have a tendency to collapse.
                   Build a Maintenance Office nearby to prevent damage in
                   the future.

            _______________
            Granary Orders:
            ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
              You can assign a Granary specific orders as to what types of
              food it will accept and how much of that food it will accept.
              For more information, read pages 66-68 in the manual.

          ___________
          Storehouse:

            A Storehouse is used for finished goods.  It can also be used for
            things like food.  Keep in mind that food that is placed in a
            Storehouse is not used to feed the citizens of your city.

            A Storehouse has orders similar to that of a Granary.

          Agoras & Vendors:
          ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
            Vendors are built on Agoras.  Vendors buy goods from the Granary
            and Storehouse to sell to the citizens.  There are several types
            of Vendors, each with a specific job.

      Trade
      -----

        Your city can't produce everything.  You will eventually come into
        money problems, so trade is the only answer to both of these problems.

        The problem with trading is not every city wants to trade with you.
        Sure, every city wants your goods, but they don't necessarily want
        to pay you for them.

        Trading in 'Pharaoh' is slightly different from trading here in 
        'Zeus'.  In 'Pharaoh', you had a Dock to import/receive goods from
        the sea.  You also used Storage Yards to import/receive goods from
        the ground.  Well, in 'Zeus', you have a special Pier.  The Pier
        is designed to accept goods from only one specific city.  The
        Trading Post in 'Zeus' is set up the same way.

          ____________________
          Trading Post & Pier:
          ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
            Items that are bought from another city are brought to either
            your Trading Post or your Pier.  Things in your Pier have come
            from a city trading via water route.  Things in your Trading
            Post have come from a city trading via land route.

            Once you've built either a Pier or a Trading Post, that city's
            traders will show up in your city.  They are unable to trade
            anything until you give your Trading Post or Pier orders for
            either importing or exporting goods.


  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
                               Hygiene and Satefy
  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    City health and safety are critical.  If you have poor health, your
    population will all die, and you'll soon find that you have basically
    no city left.  To be healthy, you need a supply of food and a healer
    of some kind.

      Infirmary
      ---------

        An Infirmary has a negative Desirability Level, so keep that in
        mind when building one.  An Infirmary employs healers who walk
        around the city and act as a door-to-door doctor, sort of speak.
        
        Keep in mind that your Infirmary needs to have road access!

      Plague
      ------

        The plague is a horrible ailment.  If a house becomes infected, it
        will be quarantined for a few months to ensure that no one else
        catches it.  No one can move into the house until the quarantine
        is lifted.

        There is a Hygiene Overview tab that you can view.  This will enable
        you to see how everything looks house to house.

      Unrest
      ------

        Unrest will be part of your city, and it's not something you really
        look forward to.  However, it can be prevented to an extent.  If
        you provide the citizens with the things they want, you shouldn't
        run into unrest.

        If you fail to make them happy, they become upset, and some become
        "Disgruntled Citizens", while others can become "Outlaws".
        Disgruntled citizens aren't there to cause trouble usually, but it's
        a bad sign if you do have them.  Outlaws, on the other hand, are
        a little more dangerous and a threat to the city.  They will mug
        your citizens, and even kill a few of them.  Some of the outlaws
        become thieves, so they will end up stealing food and other things
        from the elite housing.  If a peddler does not replenish those stolen
        goods, the elite house will deteriorate.  Unfortunately, this isn't
        the end of the road for these upset people.  There are also people,
        who will completely raze the elite housing, and the former residents
        will have to move to the next city on the map.

        Building Watchposts is the key to fending off this problem.  A
        Watchpost employs a guard, who will try to fight off any criminals.
        Providing your people with what they want and need is the main thing
        to do.  This will prevent unrest.  There is also an Unrest Overview
        tab for your viewing pleasure.

      Hazards
      -------

        Fire and Collapsing buildings are the two main hazards in the City-
        Building series.  In previos games, there was a building to control
        each one separately.  Zeus, however, combines both of them in one
        building, the Maintenance Office.

        A Maintenance Office employs people to make sure there are no fires
        and buildings remain strong.    If there is a fire, they will put it
        out as soon as they can.  If there are structural cracks or flaws
        in buildings, the superintendent will fix them, although you can't
        actually see them doing it.

        As with the previous things mentioned in this section, there is an
        Overview tab as well.  Keep in mind that the Maintenance Office
        requires road access to function.

      Water
      -----

        Water is essential to life.  Building a Fountain will be the way to
        get water to everyone.  Once the Fountain has road access and a full
        staff, it will send out water bearers to bring water to nearby
        housing.

        As with the previous things mentioned in this section, there is an
        Overview tab as well.


  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
                              City Administration
  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Every city needs some sort of administration.  Without it, it would be
    total chaos and the city wouldn't be a city for too much longer.  You
    need administration to collect taxes as well.

      Palace
      ------

        The Palace is the essential part of the city.  You cannot collect
        taxes without it.  As you would expect, people love living near
        the Palace, so place it in an area where it could affect a lot of
        homes, if possible.  You'll see the companies' standards surrounding
        the Palace.

      Taxes
      -----

        Taxes are extremely important for a city.  Taxes help pay for things
        you have bought through trading.  They will also allow you to make
        an income.  You need to build a Tax Office to collect taxes, however.

        A Tax Office needs road access, and a full staff.  Once those two
        things are met, it will send out clerks to collect taxes from each
        of the houses.

          __________
          Tax Rates:
          ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
            Setting the tax rates will determine how much your city will
            make.  Just remember that a high tax rate will upset people,
            so don't make it high, unless you want to create pure chaos.


  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
                            Hippodrome And Crosswalk
  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
               Note: This is in the Poseidon Expansion Pack Only

    The people of Atlantis do indulge themselves in more idle entertainment.
    They love to watch horses race at a Hippodrome.  Each city can have
    only one Hippodrome, and it can be as large or as small as you want.

    To begin Hippodrome construction, select the Administration Tab and
    click "Hippodrome" button.  Hold the red block that appears over a clear
    piece of land.  As you hold the block over the land, your choices
    for the type of segment cycle through.  When you see the section you
    want to build, click to place the segment.  When you are ready to add
    to the track, click the "Hippodrome" button again.  Move the block that
    appears so that it is adjacent to one of the ends of the existing
    Hippodrome onto the ends of sections aleady built.  As you hold the
    cursor in place, your choices will again cycle through.  When the segment
    you want to build appears, click to build it.  A Hippodrome is complete
    when it is a closed loop.

    If you are placing striaght sections of Hippodrome, you can click the mouse
    button and drag the cursor until you have all the stright sections
    you want.

    A Hippodrome does not necessarily have to be an oval.  As long as the
    Hippodrome is a complete citcuit, it can be any shape you want.

    After the Hippodrome is complete, a handler from the Hippodrome must
    receive some horses from a Horse Ranch before races can begin.  He
    must be able to walk on a road from the Hippodrome to the Horse
    Ranch.  Once the handler returns to the track with enough horses,
    the races will start.  To find out how many horses the Hippodrome
    needs, right-click on it.

    The larger a Hippodrome is, the more horses race upon it, and the more
    horses the handler will have to retrieve.  If the Hippodrome is large
    enough, your citizens will attend the races and spend money making
    wagers and ordering snacks.  If you continue to make the Hippodrome
    larger, you'll become more popular with the residents of your city,
    and word of the fantastic races will spread around the world.  Soon,
    people from all over the world will come to your Hippodrome and spend
    money.  The Hippodrome will generate revenue, and you'll become more
    popular with your own citizens and other leaders of the world.

    As fun as building a Hippodrome is, be careful not to crowd out
    your city.  Remember, horses don't work.

    A Hippodrome provides exciting action for the citizens of Atlantis
    and the world, but it can also provide a lot of city design questions.
    Luckily, you can use Crosswalks to bridge over large Hippodrome.
    Crosswalks can be built over straight sections of Hippodrome only.
    To build a Crosswalk, select the Administration Tab and click the
    "Hippodrome" button.  Select "Crosswalk," then find a straight
    section of track that has empty land or a road on both sides of it.
    When you've picked a suitable spot, you'll see a green ghost of the
    Crosswalk.  Click the mouse button to set the Crosswalk in place.
    Any citizen can use the Crosswalk to get across the Hippodrome.

    Because of structural considerations, Crosswalks cannot be built
    adjacent to each other.

    Hippodromes and Crosswalks may only be built on Atlantis or its
    colonies.


  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                    Culture
  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Every city needs needs culture.  A city lacking culture isn't really
    a city at all, in my opinion.  There are several things associated
    with culture, so let's see what's involved...

      Philosophy
      ----------

        Philosophy is probably one of the most important things.  You need
        yout citizens to be smart.  You need to stimulate their minds, so
        this is the answer.

        A Collage is required for this job.  A College will teach philosophers
        the latest modes of thinking.  Philosophers need a place to spew their
        words to the masses.  You need to build a Podium for this.  There
        is a Philosophers Overview tab, which will allow you to see how well
        they are doing.  Now that you have intelligent people, you need to
        get them in shape.

      Athletics
      ---------

        To get your citizens in shape, build a Gymnasium.  The Athletes will
        then train your citizens, and this will make them more healthy.  If
        a Stadium is built in the city, a Gymnasium will produce competitors
        as well, which will perform in the Stadium.

      Drama
      -----

        Drama is the only thing available that will make people laugh and cry.
        To produce an Actor, you need a Drama School.  Once you have an Actor,
        you will need to build a Theater, which will give that person a place
        to show off his/her acting abilities.

      Competition
      -----------

        Competition is usually a good thing, whether you're talking about
        companies or physican competition.  If you want competition, you
        will need to build a Stadium.  Once a Stadium is constructed, a
        Gymnasium will produce competitors, which will compete in the
        Stadium.  If you have a Stadium, you will be able to host the Pan-
        Hellenic Games.


    There is a Culture Overview tab, which will enable you to see how spread
    Culture is in your city.

    Pan-Hellenic Games
    ------------------

      This is the Olympic Games.  For more information, read pages 110-113
      in the game manual.


  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                    Science
  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
               Note: This is in the Poseidon Expansion Pack Only

    Atlanteans value science above all other pursuits.  Rather than entertain
    themselves with dramas, philosophical ideas and athletics, they thrill to
    uncover previously unknown facts and to study the world around them.
    In fact, Atlanteans will not improve their homes until they receive
    scientific instruction.  They learn the sciences from scholars,
    astronomers, inventors, and curators.

      Scholars
      --------

        Scholars become wise by studying the books in a Bibliotheke.  Once
        they have learned some fascinating facts, the scholars wander the
        city, sharing their knowledge with the population.  Scholars
        begin their studies when the Bibliotheke has workers.

        Scholars are roaming walkers and turn around if they run into a
        roadblock.

      Astronomers
      -----------

        Astronomers look to the skies to learn more about life on earth.
        But, before they can track the stars from an Observatory, they
        must first receive instruction at a University.

        After the astronomer completes his studies at the University,
        he makes his way to an Observatory to watch the skies.  When an
        astronomer spots something new in the heavens, he'll leave the
        Observatory to tell people in the surrounding neighborhood of his
        latest discovery.

        Make sure that you can trace a road from the Observatory to the
        University; if the Astronomer can't get from the University to
        the Observatory by a road, he'll never leave the University.

        Astronomers are roaming walkers sometimes and destination walkers
        at other times.  When an astronomer is going from a University to
        an Observatory, he is a destination walker and ignores Roadblocks.
        If an astronomer leaves from an Observatory, he is a roaming walker
        and turns around when he runs into a Roadblock.

      Inventors
      ---------

        Inventors keep Atlantis on the cutting edge of new technology.  They
        receive their training at an Inventors' Workshop.  Once an inventor
        understands how to turn his ideas into products, he leaves the
        Inventors' Workshop and goes to work at a Laboratory, and when he
        invents something unique, he wanders the city's streets telling the
        citizens in the housing he passes all about his new gadget.

        make sure that the inventor can walk on a road from the Inventors'
        Workshop to the Laboratory.  Otherwise, the inventor will be trapped
        in the Workshop.

        When an inventor leaves the Laboratory to tell the world about his
        latest invention, he is a roaming walker and turns around when he
        meets a Roadblock.

        When an inventor is making his way from the Inventors' Workshop to
        the Laboratory, he is a destination walker and ignores Roadblocks.

      Curators
      --------

        Curators receive training at a University and then work at a
        Museum.  Each city can have only one Museum.

        After the curator completes his studies, he goes from the University
        to the Museum.  Make sure that the curator can walk on a road
        from the University to the Museum.  After the curator arrives
        at the Museum and prepares an exhibit, he'll leave the Museum and
        tell the people in the nearby houses of the latest displays.

        When a curator is going from a University to the Museum, he is
        a destination walker and ignores Roadblicks.  The curators that leave
        from the Museum are roaming walkers and turn around when they
        encounter a Roadblock.


    You have several means at your disposal to keep track of scientific 
    activity.  When you click the Science Tab, a brief report appears.
    Each scientific pursuit is listed, along with an estimate of how much
    instruction your citizens have received in each of the types of science.
    For more information, click the small magnifying glass.  Specific
    information regarding the number of science facilities in your city
    appears.

    To keep track of scientific activity in the neighborhoods, use
    the science reports.  You can keep track of a single type of
    scientist, or all scientist.  To check a particular type of
    scientist, click the appropriate button ("Show Scholars",
    "Show Astronomers", "Show Inventors", or "Show Curators").  When
    you click one of these buttons, msot of the city's buildings
    temporarily flatten, and most of the city's residents disappear.
    For example, if you choose "Show Scholars," only the scholars,
    bibliothekes, houses and, if you have one in your city, Hercules'
    Hall show how recently a scholar has passed by to educate the
    residents.  The taller the column, the more recently the
    scientist has passed.

    You can see all your scientists and science buildings at one time
    by clicking the "Show All Science" button.


  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                   Mythology
  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Growing up, you were probably introduced to a few Mythological creatures.
    There were a TON of them, however, and fortunately, Zeus has a few as
    well.

      The Gods
      --------

        This game features twelve gods.  As you learned in school, there was
        a hierarchy, and Zeus is no different.  Here is a list of the gods
        in order of hierarchy:

           Zeus
           Poseidon
           Hades
           Hera
           Demeter
           Athena
           Artemis
           Apollo
           Atlas
           Ares
           Hephaestus
           Aphrodite
           Hermes
           Dionysus

        When you are going through your travels, some of these gods will turn
        up.  Some will support you and desire your worship, while others may
        oppose you and set up obstacles for you to overcome.


      Friendly Gods
      -------------

        When friendly gods make appearances in your city, they are after one
        thing, workship.  If you worship the god, they will give you something
        in return.  To worship a god, you need to build a Sanctuary.  If you
        look at the above list of gods, you'll see the rank they have.  The
        higher up on the list the gods are, the more expensive and larger
        the Sanctuary will be for that god.

          Sanctuary Construction
          ----------------------

            If you're going to worship a god, you will need to build a
            Sanctuary.  In 'Pharaoh', we had to build Pyramids and several
            other structures.  Well, in 'Zeus', we have to build these
            rather large Sanctuaries.

            Every Sanctuary has a different size.  Due to that fact, each
            Sanctuary will require a different amount of marble to place
            the base and steps.

            When you have enough money and marble, you can start construction
            on the Sanctuary.  The process is very similar to building the
            buildings in 'Pharaoh'.

            For the largest Sanctuaries, you cannot see the entire footprint
            of the building when trying to find a spot for it's construction.
            In this situation, find a place for the building, and press the
            [m] key.  This will freeze the footprint and you can view the
            surrounding area.  You can also press the [r] key to rotate the
            building.  Sanctuaries require road access to function.

            Placing the base and steps of a Sanctuary is only the beginning.
            To complete the whole project, you'll need the services of some
            artisans from an Artisans' Guild and supplies of marble, wood,
            and scultpures.  An Artisans' Guild needs road access to operate.
            Be aware that the Guilds have a negative effect on Desirability.

            Now it's just a matter of time before the project is complete.

      Sanctuaries
      -----------

        Each Sanctuary brings about the god and benefits.  Below is a little
        more information on this.  This comes straight from the manual.

          * Zeus' Stronghold
            When you build Zeus' Stronghold, Zeus, Ruler of Heaven provides
            you with an Oracle hat can predict the future.  For more
            information on how to use the Oracle, see page 124.  Zeus himself
            will also defend you against any god that dares to set foot in
            your city.  Other leaders of Greece will take notice of Zeus'
            affection for you, and they will think more highly of you.
            Sometimes, Zeus will wander around your city, taking in the sites.
            In his travels, he will occasionally sanctify a building.
            Because he is the most powerful god, he can perform any god's
            sanctification.  You can also pray to Zeus (page 124).  If he
            grants your prayer, he will defeat the next army that attacks your
            city.  If you are in great danger, Zeus might grant you this
            blessing of his own accord.

          * Promontory Of Poseidon
            Poseidon, Ruler of the Sea, will be so pleased when you build him
            his Sanctuary, he will send his Kraken to patrol your city's
            waters, killing any enemies that enter them.  He'll also convince
            urchins and fish to allow themselves to be caught faster.  Poseidon
            will also stroll ...er, swim... around the city and will sanctify
            Fisheries and Urchin Quays.  While they are sanctified, Fisheries
            and Urchin Quays will be more productive.  The ever-versatile
            Poseidon is also patron of horses and will also sanctify Horse
            Ranches.  While sanctified, more horses will magically appear in
            Horse Ranches.  Poseidon will give you seafood if your city is low
            on food, and you can also pray to him for this blessing.

          * Gates Of Hades
            Build Hades' Sanctuary, and the Ruler of the Underworld will loan
            you his favorite pet, Cerberus, wanders the city on his own and
            attacks any enemies.  The Gates also have some deposits of silver
            ore that miners from a Mint can gather.  Hades can sanctify Tax
            Offices, Mints, and Foundries.  While the Tax Office is sanctified,
            houses in the vicinity will pay more taxes.  While the Mint or
            Foundry is sanctified, it becomes more productive.  Finally, you
            can pray to Hades for Money.  If Hades notices on his own that
            you are low on money, he might give you money or he'll see to it
            that one of your allies provides you with funds.

          * Garden Of Demeter
            Fertile meadow surrounds the Garden of Demeter, Goddess of
            Fertility.  You can use land for farms, livestock, and orchards.
            On her walks around your city, Demeter will sanctify your farms,
            making them yield more food.  If Demeter notices that you are
            low on food, she will bring food from her own harvest to the
            Granaries.  You can also pray to Demeter to receive this blessing.

          * Arbor of Athena
            When you build the Arbor of Athena, Goddess of Warriors, Crafts,
            and Wisdom, she provides you with an arbor of sacred Olive Trees
            that growers from a Growers' Lodge can tend and harvest.  She
            also endows the soldiers in your city with more strength, and she
            herself will defend your city if it is threatened.  When Athena
            makes a foray into your city, she might sanctify your Carding Sheds
            and Olive Presses.  While they are sanctified, these buildings
            will become more productive.  You can pray to Athena for olives
            and olive oil, and she might grant you this blessing on her own
            if she notices that you are running low on the items.

          * Artemis' Menagerie
            Artemis, Goddess of Hunters, loans you two companies of fierce
            Amazon warriors.  She will also stroll around your city and hunt
            down any predators she sees killing another animal or person.  The
            building that she sanctifies is the Boar Hunter's Lodge.  While
            sanctified, the hunters from the Lodge find that their spears can't
            miss, and they are much more productive.  Pray to Artemis if you
            want her to bring you some pork.  She'll grant this blessing
            voluntarily if she notices that you are particularly low on food.

          * Oracle Of Apollo
            Apollo is the God of Prophecy.  If you build his Sanctuary, he
            will grant you use of his Oracle with which you can redict the
            future.  The god will also endow your city's philosophers,
            athletes, actors, and competitors with more skills, giving them
            a better chance of winning the Pan-Hellenic Games.  Apollo will
            also kill any monsters that attack your city.  When the god takes
            a walk, he might sanctify your Podiums, Gymnasiums, Theaters, and
            Stadium.  While these buildings are sanctified, more walkers will
            emerge from them to entertain the neighborhood.  If Apollo answers
            your prayer, he will cure the city of plague and improve citizens'
            health.  He might also grant this blessing on his own if he notices
            that a plague has broken out.

          * Ares' Fortress
            Ares, God of War, grants you the use of two companies of his fierce
            warriors, the Sparti, when you build his Fortress.  He will also
            take his Dragon for an occasional walk and allow his pet to feast
            on an invader, wolf, or vicious boar.  Pray to Ares if you would
            like him to accompany your soldiers into battle at another city.
            Ares loves a good fight, so sometimes he will go with your soldiers
            voluntarily.

          * Forge of Hephaestus
            Honor Hephaestus, Smith of Heaven, with a Sanctuary, and he gives
            you the gifts of the Forge.  Copper ore lies outside the Sanctuary,
            and miners from a Foundry can extract the ore.  Hephaestus also
            prevents your city's buildings from burning down.  As Hephaestus 
            walks around your city, he sanctifies some of your Armories and
            Sculpture Studios.  While the buildings are sanctified, the workers
            find that bronze is much easier to work with, and they produce
            more armor and sculpture than they usually do.  Pray to Hephaestus,
            and he will answer your prayer by granting you the use of Talos,
            his man of bronze.  Talos will defend your city from attack for
            a few months.  If Hephaestus senses that you are in trouble, he
            might send Talos to you on his own.

          * Aphrodite's Haven
            Aphrodite, Goddess of the Tender Passions, makes your city so
            attractive that people refuse to leave.  No one will emigrate as
            long as Aphrodite's Haven is working in the city.  She will also
            make your city seem more appealing to its residents.  And, if Ares,
            Hephaestus, Hermes, or Dionysus come into your city to cause
            trouble, Aphrodite will send them packing.  On her strolls, she
            sanctifies some of your houses, and they will gain more residents
            if they have room.  If Aphrodite answers your prayer, she will
            bless all of your city's houses with more residents.  She might
            even perform this blessing for you voluntarily if she notices
            that your city's housing is mostly vacant.

          * Hermes' Refuge
            Hermes, Messenger of the Gods, is a friend of traders.  He will
            convince trade caravans and ships to move through your city quicker,
            which means that they drop off and pick up supplies faster.  He
            also convinces more trade caravans and ships to come to your city
            every year.  Deliverymen also move faster when Hermes is in
            residence.  You can also pray to Hermes, and he will fulfill one
            outstanding request on your behalf with no cost to you.  He'll also
            offer this blessing to you of his own accord.

          * Grove of Dionysus
            Dionysus, God of the Vine, hates to see any city go without wine.
            His Sanctuary has a grove of Grapevines that growers from the
            Growers' Lodge can harvest.  Life is a party with Dionysus around,
            and people are having far too much fun for any unrest to develop.
            As he stumbles around your city, Dionysus sanctifies Wineries.
            While sanctified, the vintners are able to ferment more wine than
            they usually can.  You can also pray to Dionysus to give you wine of
            his own accord if he notices that you are low on his favorite
            beverage.

          * Orchard of Hera (Available in Poseidon Expansion Pack ONLY)
            When you complete the Orchard of Hera, two stands of Orange 
            Trees sprout up in front of her Sanctuary.  These Orange Trees 
            can be harvested by a tender from an Orange Tenders' Lodge.  
            When she is out and about in your city, she might sanctify your 
            Corrals and Orange Tenders' Lodges.  While sanctified, these 
            buildings produce more food than usual.

            Hera is also the only deity who can stand up to Zeus and send 
            him packing.  If Zeus attacks a city that worships Hera, she 
            will make sure that Zeus causes no damage.  She also increases 
            your population by making your citizens more fertile.  They 
            give birth to more babies while Hera is in residence.

            A prayer to the goddess helps you keep the city's Agoras 
            stocked.  When Hera answers your prayer, she helps all the 
            vendors in your city uncover some stock that they did not 
            realize they had.  If Hera notices that your Agoras are 
            running low on supplies, she may grant this blessing on her
            own.  Hera only helps those Vendors' Stalls that have employees.

            When she is upset, Hera...well, let's just say that she does 
            some interesting things to your people.  Hera also kills half 
            the cattle being raised in your city and destroys the orange 
            crop.  To top it off, she convinces all the other leaders in 
            the world to think less of you.

          * Pillar of Atlas (Available in Poseidon Expansion Pack ONLY)
            When you complete the Pillar of Atlas, the great god induces 
            your stonecutters to work more quickly.  Artisans' Guilds also 
            send out more artisans to construction sites.  If Atlas 
            sanctifies a Masonry Shop or Black Marble Workshop while 
            wandering around your city, then the sanctified building 
            will produce more marble than usual.

            If Atlas hears your prayer, he will speed up the construction 
            of a Sanctuary or Pyramid.  When he responds to your prayer, 
            he makes his way to a construction site.  Any materials en 
            route to the site magically appear, and the construction 
            materials somehow last longer than they should.  For a short 
            time, the artisans continue to work without needing new 
            supplies.

            When Atlas invades, any unfortunate people who cross his path 
            are turned to stone.  He also curses your Black Marble 
            Workshops and Masonry Shops.  Any marble on the premises is 
            destroyed, and no more is delivered until the curse wears 
            off.  Atlas also curses Artisans' Guilds.  When cursed, any 
            artisan working on a project dies, and other artisans, not 
            wanting the same cruel fate to befall them, stay in the 
            Artisans' Guild until the curse ends.

          * Citadel of Poseidon (Available in Poseidon Expansion Pack ONLY)
            Poseidon is the father of Atlantis, and when Atlanteans 
            worship him they build the Citadel of Poseidon.  The Citadel 
            of Poseidon provides the same benefits as the Promontory of 
            Poseidon, but it is a much more majestic building, befitting 
            of the god's stature in Atlantis.  The central feature of the 
            Citadel of Poseidon is a gorgeous statue of the god is his 
            element, surrounded by leaping dolphins and beautiful Nereids.

      Sacrifices
      ----------

        When you hear "Sacrifices", bad things tend to come to mind.  Well,
        I'm not talking about human sacrifices, so don't get worried.

        Priests from a Sanctuary will go around the city looking for either
        a goat or a sheep for this.  If the priest cannot find one, then
        food will be taken away from your Granary.  If you never have a goat
        of sheep in your city for this purpose, the god will think that you
        have turned your back on him/her, and you will lose any benefits that
        the Sanctuary provides.

      Prayer
      ------

        Praying to a God will bring you some sort of benefit.  A list of them
        is shown above.  Right-click on the Sanctuary.  A panel will appear
        and give you the option of praying to the god.  If the god grants
        your prayer, he/she will let you know.

      Oracle
      ------

        Earlier I mentioned the Oracle.  The Oracle is used to view/predict
        the future.  Zeus' Stronghold and the Oracle of Apollo both have
        Oracles.  To consult the Oracle, it's the same process as praying
        for a god.  If the Oracle responds to your request, it will issue
        a prediction.

      When Gods Attack
      ----------------

        No, this is not another crappy FOX special.

        When a god is upset, he/she will tear up your city.  Each god goes
        after a particular part of the city.  Below is a description of this.

        * Zeus
          Zeus wreaks general havoc.  He'll destroy the city's Palace, then
          look for other buildings to crush.  He can also perform any god's
          curse, and traders won't come to a city cursed by Zeus.

        * Poseidon
          Poseidon focuses his anger on your water-related buildings.  Trireme
          Wharves, Urchin Quays, and Fisheries cannot hope to escape his wrath.
          When he curses these buildings, they become inoperable until the
          curse the curse is lifted.  Trade ships won't risk Poseidon's wrath
          and won't come to your city until they are sure Poseidon has left.

        * Hades
          Hades likes to bring people back to the Underworld with him.  When
          he attacks, every walker in the city goes to the Underworld, and
          your streets will be eerily empty.  Hades also likes to curse
          Foundries and Mints, and they will not work while they are cursed.

        * Demeter
          The Goddess of Fertility spends her time making your city infertile.
          When she's retaliating against you, she likes to destroy crops and
          kill sheep and goats.

        * Athena
          When Athena is exacting revenge, she likes to weaken the city's
          defenses by leaving the city's Walls and Towers unmanned.  She also
          does a number on the city's olive oil industry.

        * Artemis
          When you offend Artemis, she and her Amazons launch a full-scale
          attack on your city.  She'll also kill some of your hunters and make 
          sure that wolf packs in your city are strong.

        * Apollo
          When Apollo is in a snit, he likes to cause plagues.  He'll also 
          prevent the city's cultural institutions from enriching the masses.

        * Ares
          Ares marches into your city with an army of fierce and ugly Sparti
          when he is perturbed with you.

        * Hephaestus
          Spurn the Smith of Heaven, and Hephaestus will become an arsonist,
          setting some of the city's buildings on fire.  He's also fond of
          making the metal at your Sculpture Studios and Armories so brittle 
          that it cannot be used to make anything.

        * Aphrodite
          When you scorn Aphrodite, she responds by making off with some of
          your people.  All of the walkers on the street, completely entranced
          by the goddess, will follow her out of your city, as will a portion
          of your population.

        * Hermes
          Hermes is the Messenger of the Gods, but he is also the God of
          Thieves.  When Hermes attacks, he steals some of your money, and
          makes roads unsafe for travel for trade caravans.

        * Dionysus
          Dionysus comes into your city and whisks the walkers away, leaving
          the streets barren.  He also curses the city's Grapevines.

        * Hera
          When she is upset, Hera...well, let's just say that she does some
          interesting things to your people.  Hera also kills half the cattle
          being raised in the city and destroys the orange crop.  To top
          it off, she convinces all the other leaders in thw world to think
          less of you

        * Atlas
          When Atlas invades, any unfortunate people who cross his path
          are turned to stone.  he also curses your Black Marble Workshops
          and Masonry Shops.  Any marble on the premises is destroyed, and
          no more is delivered until the curse wears off.  Atlas also curses
          Artisans' Guilds.  When cursed, any artisan working on a project
          dies, and other artisans, not wanting the same cruel fate to
          befall them, stay in the Artisans' Guild.

        The gods also have other things they can do.  They always have something
        up their sleeves.

        If a god is too busy to attack your city, he/she may send a monster
        to do so instead.

      Monsters
      --------

        Monsters don't always have bad intentions.  No, really.  Monsters are
        sent out by their masters, and do whatever they tell them to do.

        * Cyclops
          This one-eyed brute is the apple of Zeus' eye.

        * Kraken
          Poseidon counts the Kraken, a horrible sea creature, among his
          favorite things.

        * Cerberus
          This three-headed hound of the Underworld is Hades favorite pet.

        * Medusa
          This snake-haired woman, who is frequently a minion of Demeter, turns
          all who look at her into stone.

        * Hydra
          This multi-headed creature likes to bite and sting.  When he's not
          pursuing his own interests, he works for Athena.

        * Caldonian Boar
          This monsterous boar likes to impale people with his tusks.  Artemis
          is his master when he isn't attacking something of his own free will.

        * Scylla
          Another in a long list of multi-headed creatures, Scylla obeys
          Apollo when she isn't pursuing her own agenda.

        * Dragon
          The fire-breathing Dragon is one of Ares' favorite instruments of war.
          When Ares doesn't have anything for the Dragon to do, the Dragon finds
          his own trouble.

        * Talos
          Hephaestus made Talos from bronze.  Though he owes his existence to
          Hephaestus and obeys him, Talos still has a mind of his own.

        * Hector
          A great Trojan warrior, Hector frequently can be found in the service
          of Aphrodite.  Ever an independent spirit, he also follows his own
          battle plan.

        * Minotaur
          Half-man, half-bull, but all trouble, this beats often does Hermes'
          bidding.

        * Maenad
          When whipped into a frenzy, this mad-woman tears people apart with her
          bare hands.  She is a card-carrying member of the cult of Dionysus,
          but she can also act alone.

                    -- Added in "Poseidon" Expansion Pack --

        * Sphinx
          Known for her difficult riddles, th Sphinx is part woman and part 
          lion - a deadly combination to be sure.  When she isn't wreaking 
          havoc of her own volition, she follows Hera's orders.

        * Chimera
          With Typhon as a father and Echidna as her mother, Chimera's 
          pedigree is impeccable.  Her sense of destruction is also 
          well-refined.  She's more than willing to attack on her own, but 
          also does Atlas' bidding.

        * Echidna
          The mother of monsters (Sphinx, Chimera, Cerberus, and Hydra), 
          Echidna has the face of a nymph but the body of a serpent.  
          Headstrong, Echidna reports to no one; she always acts on her own.

        * Harpies
          This foursome of fearsome sisters is bent on destruction.  No 
          one would dare order the Harpies around, not even a god.

        When a monster is turned loose in your city, and the god is angry
        with you, you're in trouble.  Fortunately, there are a few ways to
        go about killing the creature.  If you have a lot of elite soldiers,
        you might be able to get rid of the beast.  The only god that will
        fight off monsters is Apollo.  The other gods don't feel that that
        kind of thing is a wise use of their powers.  The best way is to
        use a Hero that can accomplish the task.

      Heroes
      ------

        If there is a quest that needs to be fulfilled, or if there is a
        monster destroying your city, a hero will be needed to be brought into
        the city.

        * Hercules
          One of Zeus' sons, Hercules' feats of strength are well known
          throughout Greece.  If you have a problem with Berberus or Hydra,
          Hercules is your man.

        * Achilles
          this veteran hero has been around the block a time or two.  He can
          match up against Hector and the Maenads.

        * Odysseus
          This famous traveller is cunning and strong.  He knows how to fight
          Scylla and the Cyclops.

        * Jason
          A great leader of men, Jason holds the upper hand in fights with
          Talos and the Dragon.

        * Theseus
          Theseus has had a long, exciting carrier, and he continues to build
          on his legend.  He's the only man who can take on the Minotaur and
          Calydonian Boar.

        * Perseus
          A younger hero, Perseus is just beginning to build his legend.
          Medusa and the Kraken are his enemies.

        * Atalanta
          The famed archer, huntress and athlete does battle with the
          Sphinx and the Harpies.

        * Bellerophon
          The skilled horseman, does battle with Chimera and Echidna.

        To request a Hero, you need to construct a Hero's Hall.  Also, make
        sure that the Hero's Hall is connected by a road.  Right-click on
        the Hall for details on what is required to seek a Hero's presence.
        As you meet each requirement, it will be "checked" off the list.

        If there is a monster that needs slaying, the Hero will know what
        to do.

        If you're sending the Hero to fulfill a request, just let the Hero
        know when you want him to go off and complete the quest.  To send
        him on his way, select the Summary Tab, and then click on the small
        green button.  Or, you can click on the Magnifying Glass button on
        the Summary Tab.  You'll see the Quest listed in the panel that appears.
        Click on the quest to send the Hero off.

      Keeping Track Of Everyone
      -------------------------

        The Mythology Tab will list all of the gods, monsters, and heroes,
        so you can keep a tab on everyone.  For more information on this,
        read pages 131-132 in the manual.


  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                    Military
  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Military action is something that cannot always be prevented.  If you
    want your city to continue on, you will need to build an army.  Invaders
    will approach your city, looking for more land or other things, so you'll
    just have to defeat them before they are able to take over your city.

    Before you can build a military, you'll need a Palace.  The Palace is
    where everything starts from.

    This aspect of the game isn't really worth repeating, so I suggest that
    you read the entire chapter on Military.  You'll learn about the different
    types of military, the formations, the buildings, and much, much more.
    It is, however, important that you read this section.


  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                   Aesthetics
  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For people to live and love the city, it has to look nice.  No one wants
    to live in a city of nothing but Industrial buildings and workshops.
    So, this is where you have to use the Aesthetics to make the city look
    better.

    The game manual gives a small description of each of the many things you
    can use to make the city look better.  So, I will suggest that you read
    them for yourself.  In fact, I suggest that you read the whole section,
    pages 152-157.

                                  Walkthrough
  ===========================================================================

    Getting through Zeus is a long process.  I'll do my best trying to lead
    you through it.  If you've got any tips or strategies for any part of
    the game, email me at red_phoenix_1@hotmail.com, and your subject line
    should read "Zeus".

    Note: Most of the walkthroughs were done in "Beginner" for difficulty,
    which allowed me to go through things a little faster in the game,
    so there will be slightly different things happening depending on what
    difficulty you have your game set on, such as some numbers I may use
    in the walkthroughs.


  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                Zeus and Europa
  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                               Founding of Thebes
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

      Goals:  Population of 1000

      Follow a cow?  The priestess from the oracle said to follow a cow?
      A peculiar command to be sure, but then the priestess is never wrong.
      She promised that great things would come to the person who follows
      her cow until it lays down to sleep, and then builds a city on the
      spot.  This person will be able to achieve and finally bring Europa
      back to Greece.  The beautiful Europa was abducted years ago by a
      white bull and has not been seen since.  And thus, the priestess'
      Bovine-centric prophecy came to an end.

      The cow did not choose a very good spot.  She fell asleep a short
      distance from a hideous multi-headed serpent that purportedly,
      belongs to Ares.  The monster is always ravenously hungry and eats
      everything that comes near him!  Building a city here won't be easy,
      but the promised reward is irresistable!

      ------------------

      The monster that the introduction mentions is Hydra.  For me, Hydra
      wasn't near my city, so it never posed a threat.

      This level was an excellent transition from the tutorials to the game.
      This level is relatively simple, yet offers the basic situations that
      you will encounter, such as employment problems, food problems, and
      health problems.

      Food
      You have two options here.  Wheat or Cheese.  A single wheat farm
      produces more food than a single Dairy.  So, wheat would be your
      best bet, although I actually went the opposite route, which turned
      into an employment problem if I remember correctly.  For either
      Goats (for Cheese) or Wheat Farms (for Wheat), you'll need to place
      them in a Meadow area.  To the left side of the map, you'll see a
      lovely meadow area.  I don't suggest building here.  In a future
      episode on this map, a lava eruption will destroy nearby buildings
      and cause havoc.

      Military
      Unfortunately, your rivals want your city, so you must defend it in
      some way.  I chose the route of bribing them, which worked.

      Overall
      This was a fairly easy city.  The main thing I did that prolonged my
      stay in the city was planned for a larger city.  I built a lot of
      food-producing structures (Wheat Farms, Dairies) that I really didn't
      need yet.  This caused problems with the employment.


    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                                  The Serpent
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

      Goals:  Produce 48 Slabs of Marble in One Year

      The time has come.  Ares' multi-headed serpent will not leave Thebes
      alone, and as the city grows, the monster is bound to cause more
      trouble, plus you could really use some sort of that marble it seems
      to be guarding.  For the good of the city, the serpent must be slain.
      No ordinary human can perform this extraordinary task, however.  You'd
      need the help of a hero!

      ------------------

      Hydra is guarding the marble quarry.  So unless you want buildings
      and people destroyed and killed, you will need to kill Hydra.  To
      kill Hydra, you need to seek Hercules.  Hercules' Hall will need
      certain things to bring Hercules to the city.

      Requirements for Hercules' Hall:

      Hercules Hall Has Excellent Culture Access
      Win any Pan-Hellenic Game
      Excellent City Wide Gymnasium Access
      Population of 1500
      32 Amphorae of wine

      Calydon will send wine and sculptures for fleece.

      Once you have killed Hydra, you can begin quarrying marble.  Building
      a half-dozen Masonry Shops will be enough.  Once you have 48 slabs
      of marble produced in one year, the scenario will come to an end.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                                   Ares' City
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

      Goals:  Sanctuary to Ares
              50 People in Residence or better
              30 Sheaves of Wheat for colony
              25 Jugs of Olive Oil for colony

      The wine goddess Athena offered this advice: 'Ares is indeed going to
      be upset by the loss of that serpent.  He has this thing for serpents-
      single- headed double- headed, dunder- headed-  It doesn't matter.
      He loves them all.  And, he really liked how the song listened off
      all those heads.  But, do you know what Ares likes almost as much
      as serpents?  Big, big sanctuaries built just for him!  He likes to
      conduct what he calls 'Ambush Practice' in a Sanctuary's twisting
      halls, but to most it seems like he's playing hide and seek.  If you
      build a Sanctuary for Ares, the god will be thrilled to have a new
      place to practice the art of war, and he'll forget all about the 
      serpent.  He'll even take some of the slain serpent's teeth, sow them
      in the earth, transforming them into fiercly powerful soldiers called
      Sparti.  These soldiers will do your building and help to protect
      Thebes.  Heel my advice, mortal, and good luck.

      ------------------

      Ahh, a new sanctuary to construct.  Although Ares' Sanctuary isn't
      huge, it has wondeful benefits.  Two companies of Mythical Warriors
      will join your military forces, and if you pray to Ares, he may
      accompany you on a distant battle.  As you've read before, you'll
      need marble, wood, and sculptures.

      Hopefully, you already have an excess of marble, so this shouldn't
      be a problem.

      You will need to import wood from Libya, which will require a Pier.
      Don't import too much.  For Ares' Sanctuary, only 14 loads of wood
      is required, so importing more won't be necessary.

      Sculptures are the third item you need to finish the Sanctuary.
      To obtain sculptures, you have three options that will all work.
      I would suggest requesting them from your ally Calydon.  They are
      essentially free this way.

      Before you place the Sanctuary, we must talk about placement.  I
      ended up placing it on the right-hand side of the map, which was
      a big mistake, although it still worked.  All of the monsters that
      come in to destroy your city come from the left-hand side of the map,
      so placing the Sanctuary there is the smartest thing to do.

      Finally we get to use Elite Houses.  These are much more demanding
      than 'common' housing.  The first thing an Elite House needs is
      an area of high appeal.  Constructing several Fish Ponds nearby
      can help this out.  Elite Houses require a lot of goods to remain
      occupied and attractive.  Each Elite House needs 1 Skein of Fleece,
      1 Jugs of Olive Oil, and 2 Crates of Food.  Once the house can be
      placed on the map, you must provide it with a constant 'feed' of
      goods and culture.  For providing the goods, Grand Agoras are
      suggested.  They were designed specifically for Elite Housing,
      as they can hold up to six vendors.  Other than the Agoras, you
      will need to have the goods nearby, so the vendors may retrieve the
      goods.  As mentioned above, you must provide the Elite Houses with
      a lot of culture.  If a house isn't evolving, right-click on it
      to see what the problem is.  Most commonly, it is suffering from:
      Not enough appeal, Not enough culture, or it needs Armor.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                              The Cretan Princess
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    Goals:  30 Planks of Wood for Parent City
            30 Amphorae of Wine for Parent City

    The people of Crete are wary of you, and an old beggar man reveals the
    reason: 'Once, a woman was spotted far away from our shores, approaching
    our island on the crest of a giant, foamy wave.  As the woman drew
    closer, it became clear that she wasn'r riding on the sea, but on the
    back of a great white bull!  The bull deposited the woman on our shores,
    and Talos, a bronze man forged by Hephaestus, guards the woman night
    and day.  The bronze man guards our island, too, preventing
    invaders from doing any harm.

    It has been prophesied that a leader from Thebes will come to our island
    and take this woman from us.  We fear that if the leader succeeds, Talos
    will no longer guard our island.  And, since you are from Thebes, you
    might just be the one that will change our world completely!

    ------------------

    This is a different situation.  You get a new map, and you must build
    a successful colony.  It's what you make of it.   This map is extremely 
    small.

    You'll notice Talos in the upper-left corner of the map.  There is one
    decision that you must make here.  Should I kill Talos?  I didn't.
    It's not a requirement of the city.  Talos won't venture too close to
    your city if you don't get too close to him.  He just paces back and
    forth up there.  If you do decide to kill Talos, you'll need the aid
    of Jason.

    Jason's Hall Requirements
    - 3 Triremes
    - 2 Horsemen Companies
    - 64 Crates of Food
    - 8 Horses
    - 16 Amphorae of Wine

    As you can see, those requirements would take a LOT of time to produce.
    Also, Trireme Wharves require 100 workers each, so you'd really have to
    have a heck of a city.  My suggestion would be to leave him alone.  He
    ends up appearing later on again anyway, and you're just wasting time
    acquiring those goods, which will in turn produce no real benefits,
    other than allowing you to build in the area Talos was pacing in.

    Start your city as far to the right as possible.  Wood is all over the
    place, so meeting that requirement shouldn't be too hard to complete.

    Wine will take a little longer to produce.  You'll need to plant
    some Grapevines in the meadow area.  You'll also have to build a few
    Growers' Lodges.  Wineries and Storehouses are the next buildings in
    the chain of wine production.

    You will receive requests for both Wine and Food, be sure that you have
    some extra for that purpose.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                              The Wedding Present
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    Goals:  Slay a Monster
            2 Sanctuaries

    The wedding of Harmonia and Cadmus was a splendid affair.  Hephaestus,
    Aphrodite, and Ares were in attendance, along with notable leaders
    from all over the world.  Ares and Aphrodite beamed with pride as they
    each presented Harmonia with a gift.  Aphrodite gave the bride a
    gorgeous necklace that Hephaestus had made, and Ares presented the bride
    with a beautiful and ornate robe.  But the gift that you brought to
    the wedding was the best of all.  You brought Europa, and she finally
    reunited with her brothers Cadmus, Thasus, Phoenix, and Cilix.
    Ecstatic over the return of their sister, Cadmus and Thasus have become
    your stauch allies, while Phoenix anc Cilix opened their distant cities,
    Phoenicia and Cilicia, to trade.  Harmonia and Cadmus even agreed to
    present you with the robe and necklace, though they thought it best to
    send you the gifts later, after the gods had left, so not to offend them.

    Only two things marred the ceremony.  The first was the fear that Talos
    would arrive on the scene at any moment.  The second was the shocking
    lack of wine!  Wine has been difficult to come by in Greece lately,
    except in Mount Cithaeron, which has an abundance of the beverage.  The
    people of Mount Cithaeron are refusing to share their supplies, keeping
    all the wine to themselves.

    ------------------

    As soon as you begin, a Colony Monument will become available.

    The introduction gives you a hint to the monster you'll have to defeat
    (Talos).  Defeating Talos will require the help of Jason.  For the
    requirements of his Hall, view the walkthrough for the previous
    episode, as I've included it there.

    Getting Jason to your city will be no simple task, that's for sure.
    One thing you'll need for sure is Armor.  You need it for the Triremes
    and Horsemen Companies.  You'll also need a supply of Horses.  You
    have to have plenty of food in your city at this time.  Jason's Hall
    will require 64 crates of food, which is equivalent to two full
    granaries.  Getting the triremes is a pain in a way.  One Trireme Wharf
    requires 100 employees, which is a drain on the workforce if you
    are suffering from employment problems.  Fortunately, a Trireme
    Wharf has the option to send people home when the Trireme isn't
    built yet.  In theory, you can turn one of them on at a time, as
    your workforce will allow.

    When you've met all of the goals, you can call for Jason.  Once Jason
    arrives, he'll fight Talos, who is "guarding" the Marble Quarry.
    You need that marble for the Sanctuary you have to build.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                                The Wine Crisis
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    Goals:  Rule Mt. Cithaeron
            3 Sanctuaries

    The situation at Mount Cithaeron has gotten out of control.  Nearly
    all of Greece's supply of wine is hoarded there, and now strange things
    are happening around the city.  There have been reports that bodies of
    sheep, goats, and even, people, gruesomely torn apart, have turned up
    nearby.  The attacks seem much too vicious to be the work of a wandering
    pack of wolves or an angry wild boar.  The frightening deaths have scared
    the people of Mount Pelion into hiding, and they have not had contact
    with anyone for some time.  Adrastrus of Argos has stopped trading,
    choosing not to risk the lives of his merchants for a few measly
    drachmas and supplies.  The only solution of this problem is to invade
    Mount Cithaeron and see what is going on there for yourself.

    ------------------

    The introduction is very helpful, because it gives you some reasoning
    to some of the events that happened (trading and isolation).

    The Elite Housing that you built in the previous episode should provide
    a nice army of troops.  If you didn't do very well with this aspect,
    be sure to do so.

    I chose the Garden of Demeter for this sanctuary.  If you build it
    so that she walks by your wheat farms, she can bless them, and that
    will make the wheat farm turn out 4x the normal amount of wheat,
    which is a great bonus.

    Conquerering Mount Cithaeron is not much of a challenge.  It will turn
    out that the killing of the sheep, goats, and people is due to The
    Maenads.

    If I remember correctly, Cydonia will ask for help with Talos, who is
    attacking their city.  Praying to Ares is helpful here, although you
    can probably call for Jason if you want, although I don't suggest it.

    Once the Sanctuary is up, and you have ruled Mount Cithaeron, it's
    on to your next episode.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                              The Maenads' Rampage
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    Goals:  11 Trading Partners
            Slay a Monster
            Yearly Profit of 2000
            Population of 4000

    Fear is crippling nearly all of Greece.  The Maenads are everywhere,
    leaving cities throughout Greece in shambles.  Now, Dionysus has
    rallied his Maenads to attack Thebes to punish you for destroying
    his home.  If things are ever going to return to normal, you will
    have to find a way to kill those horrible monsters and restore a
    feeling of safety to the people of Greece so that trade and diplomatic
    exchanges may be conducted once again.

    ------------------

    The city that I had in the previous episode easily have me the
    population goal already.  You should already have nine of the eleven
    required trading partners.

    Before we get carried away with the trading partner goal, we must
    prepare for the Maenads.  You will need the help of Achilles.  His
    Hero's Hall will not become available until the Maenads are at the
    city, but I'd suggest preparing your city for the requirements for
    the Hall.  Below are the requirements that your city must meet
    for his appearance in your city:

    - 32 Suits of Armor
    - 3 Hoplite Companies or better
    - A Sanctuary to Athena
    - No unrest in the city
    - 16 Amphorae of Wine

    Okay, back to the trading partner goal.  Once I killed the Maenads,
    Elyusis opened a trading route with me.  When I killed another
    Maenad, the 11th city traded with me, and this ended the episode.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                          The Pretender to the Throne
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    Goals:  Rule Calydon
            Rule Argos
            Rule Orchomenos
            4 Sanctuaries
            100 People in Estate or better

    The dastardly Polynices of Orchomenos, exiled from Thebes, has stolen
    the robe and necklace of Harmonia!  The double-crosser has claimed the
    throne of Thebes, and promised Adrastus of Argos and Tydeus of Calydon
    these and other spoils if they help him take your city.  You must
    defeat those villains to keep what's rightfully yours.

    Meanwhile, Hephaestus The Lame God, has caught his wife, Aphrodite, in
    a forbidden embrace with Ares.  Slowly, Hephaestus has put two and two
    together and finally understood why Ares and Aphrodite had both been
    so proud of Harmonia at her wedding, and why the gorgeous goddess of the
    tender passions thought it necessary to spend 9 months at a beauty spa
    some twenty years ago.  Hotter than the metals he pounds in his forge,
    Hephaestus has decided to destroy all that she holds dear, whether it be
    a mortal, a monster, or a city!

    ------------------

    The notes as I took while playing this episode were short.  Basically,
    you've got to have a strong military to conquer those three cities and
    defend your own city against invaders.  Bribery is always a smarter
    way of handling things, at least in this episode.

    My notes indicate that Hephaestus invaded several times, and Ares
    was the person who defended the city against him.

    The goal you may find difficult is the 100 people in Estate or better.
    Right-click on an Elite house to see what it needs to evolve.  That's
    the best advice I can offer for that goal.

    Once you have met the goals, it's on to a whole NEW city and adventure!

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                               A New Way of Life
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    Goals:  500 People in Homestead or better
            Produce 20 Skeins of Fleece in One Year
            Yearly Profit of 500

    [can't read my writing] of darkness, discord reigned in Greece and the
    people lived apart from each other.  Now, a new day is dawning, and the
    time has come for a leader to rise up and, for the first time, draw the
    people together, uniting them in a mighty city.  Zeus himself has
    selected you to achieve this remarkable feat and has pointed you to a
    site in the Argolid.  The city's name will be Argos.  People will flock
    to the city in hopes of learning a trade and feeding their families,
    and they will expect you to provide for them.

    Other would-be leaders in Greece are also trying to start new cities.
    Some of them will achieve [can't read my writing] of success, while
    others will fail completely.  You might encounter them in your journeys.

    ------------------

    Finally, a new map!  There are a lot of rocky areas, which will not
    allow for building.  There are a lot of forested areas as well.  This
    map allows for fishing, and you'll have to do a lot of it to support
    the city and its food need.  There is a Marble Quarry on the map,
    which will indicate that we'll probably have to mine marble for either
    building a sanctuary or using it for trading (exports).

    Fleece production is very important on this map, and in this episode.
    To get Homesteads, they require a supply of fleece.  Also, there is the
    Fleece goal that you'll have to meet as well.

    Troezan is the only trading city, and they only want Fleece.  Requesting
    Drachmas is the best and easiest way of getting the profit goal met.

    If you would like to plan for the next episode, I suggest you produce
    an overabundance of food.  You'll run into trouble with your Fisheries
    in the next episode, and will be unable to produce any Fish.  So,
    have a few extra Granaries full would help a great deal.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                                 The City Grows
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    Goals:  640 People in Tenement or better
            48 Slabs of Marble for Colony
            12 Jugs of Olive Oil for Colony

    Argos is beginning to thrive, and you are learning more about the
    bounties that the land offers.  The time has come to build a Palace
    that will serve as the staff around which the scattered the people of
    Greece will gather.  It is also time to begin collecting taxes from your
    people to help pay for the services that your city provides.

    Up on Mount Olympus, the Tribunal of the River Gods has just come to
    order.  'We have come to a decision in this dispute' the Head of the
    Tribunal announced.  "And, though both parties presented convincing
    cases, we have no choice but to award Argos to Hera, wife of Zeus.
    Sorry, Poseidon.'  As Hera jumped up and down in glee, Poseidon's brow
    furrowed, and his face became stormy.  Under his breath, he vowed that
    if he couldn't have Argos, no one could!  You might have to turn to
    Hera's husband for protection from the ruler of the sea!

    ------------------

    I sure hope that you saved a lot of food away for this episode.

    Before I jump right into the walkthrough, I have to warn you of natural
    disasters.  When I played this level, I encountered two earthquakes
    and two tidal waves.  You may run into more or fewer than that, but it
    all depends on how long you are in this episode.

    You are introduced to the olive oil and marble industries in this
    episode.  Housing will need olive oil if it is to reach the Homestead
    status.

    As I mentioned before, you must store food for this level ahead of time.
    Posiedon lurks the waters and will destroy a few fisheries, and curse
    the others, making them useless.

    Due to the fact that Poseidon is on this level, and the Sanctuary for
    Zeus is available, I decided to build it.  You cannot complete it on
    this level, since there is no access to sculptures.  But, you can get
    a good jump on the building of the structure on this level, and finish
    it up on a later episode when you can get sculptures.  If you do decide
    to build Zeus' Stronghold, it is massive in size, and it needs a lot
    of supplies.

                           Calydon - Artemis' Revenge
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    Goals:  Slay a Monster
            Sanctuary to Hermes
            Yearly Profit of 500
            8 Pieces of Sculpture for Parent City

    Life has been tough on Artemis lately.  First, her beloved Kernyeian
    Hind, a majestic stag, was wounded by Hercules who was trying to capture
    the animal.  Then, the people in and around the region of Calydon refused
    to worship her properly.  The depressed Artemis turned to her Menagerie
    of animals for solace and, when she saw her mighty boar, snorting and
    snarling in his pen, her eyes lit up, and a small smile played across
    her face...

    ------------------

    Calydon is a fairly small map.  There isn't much in terms of meadow
    areas.  There is a TON of timber here waiting for chopping.

    With the limited amount of meadow, you will be introduced to a new
    supply of food: pork.  You'll have to build Hunting Lodges to hunt
    the wild boar, which will make some tasty pork for your fine citizens.

    Try to refrain from building in the upper-left corner of the map.
    That's where the Calydonian Boar will enter your city, and anything
    within reach will be turned to rubble.

    Ok, back to food.  Use that meadow area for goats.  You should be able
    to place a dozen or so (eventually) Dairies along a nearby road, leading
    to a "Cheese Accepting" granary.  Build Hunting Lodges to spear the wild
    boar on the map.  They'll bring their animal back to the lodge, and turn
    it into pork, which is fine eating.  If you are lucky enough to produce
    an overabundance of cheese, you can export it to Mycenae.

    For Hermes' Sanctuary, you will need to import sculptures and marble.
    When you import sculptures, don't import too many.  You only need two.
    You have access to wood, so that won't be a problem.

    According to the Impressions walkthrough, you will be receiving gifts of
    48 marble and 24 olive oil from Argos in this episode.  This wasn't in my
    notes, so I can't verify if this is true.  If anyone can, email me,
    please.

    According to my notes, Ethiopia wanted to invade.  I do remember this,
    and it only happened once I believe.  I bribed them so I wouldn't have
    to deal with them.

    Back to the Calydonian Boar.  In order to kill this beast, you'll need
    to seek the help of Theseus.

    Requirements for his presence:
    - Build Hall near the Palace
    - Good appeal around the Hall
    - Hall is protected by walls
    - 32 Slabs of marble
    - 16 Amphorae of wine

    This dude is picky about his requirements.  For the walls, you need a
    Gatehouse to allow roads in and out.  You'll need walls around the Hall
    to protect it.  For appeal, this is hard sometimes.  Depending on how
    much space surrounds the Hall, this could either be easy or difficult.
    The more room, the better.  You'll have to place anything of high appeal
    near the Hall.  Free commemorative monuments work well for this if
    you have a few left over.  Fish Ponds work well as well, since they are
    big, and bigger objects will spread the appeal value over a further
    distance than a small object.

            Fulfill a forthcoming quest
            48 Slabs of Marble for Colony
            24 Jugs of Olive Oil for Colony

    Poseidon continues his onslaught on Argos and is determined to destroy
    the city, and the word around the agora is that the god might also
    enlist the aid of one of his consorts to turn your city to stone!
    Only Perseus, who is off founding the city of MyCenae, will be able to
    help you slay the monster.  But even this worthy hero won't be able to
    defeat the creature by himself.  He will need some magical items to
    vanquish this unsightly foe.

    Some clever herders have discovered how to tame the wild goat.  At a
    Dairy, they goat's rich milk will soon be made into succulent cheese
    that your citizens find quite tasty.

    ------------------

    A Colony Monument will become available once you start the episode.

    Use the Dairies to produce cheese for the city.  Also, the introduction
    didn't mention Elite Houses.  You don't need them for this episode,
    but they oay higher taxes, which is great.

    Ethiopia will demand supplies of olive oil from you.

    When the quest is announced, build the Hero's Hall for Perseus.

    Requirements:
    - A Sanctuary to Athena
    - A Sanctuary to Hermes
    - 3000 Drachmas
    - 16 Skeins of Fleece
    - 6 Pieces of Sculpture

    Once you've met the requirements, send Perseus on his way to do the
    quests.

                         Miletos - The Eastern Frontier

    No Greek has ventured this far east before, across the great sea, and
    you'll have to tread very softly to start a city in this land.  Great
    nations shoulder against each other here, and they'll be suspicious
    of you, a newcomer.  Cassiopeia, Queen of Ethiopia, will be particularly
    annoyed that you have come near her territory.  But she has much bigger
    things to worry about.  Ever the proud mother, Cassiopeia boasted that
    her own daughter, Andromeda, is more beautiful than Poseidon's daughters,
    the Nereids.  Now, Andromeda is to be fed to the Kraken, and Casiopeia
    is devastated.  If you can find a way to rescue Andromeda, the powerful
    Cassiopeia will certainly appreciate it, and you may gain a valuable
    friend.

    The fleet-footed Hermes has also been spotted in the area, looking for
    Perseus.  The god says that he's seen an item in his travels that Perseus
    might find useful.

    While the Kraken roams free, life along the water might be difficult,
    and trade might be prone to disruption.  Look to other cities, even your
    rivals, for the things you need.  Worshipping the gods also can be a boon
    to you, as any of their sanctuaries have valuable resources of their
    own.

    ------------------

    Ahh, a new map, and another colony to build.

    Let's see what the map and control panel tell us.  There are three
    breeding areas for Boars, which will serve as a major food resource.
    There is more than enough woodland.  We are given the Timber Mill,
    which will show that we'll have to do some chopping eventually.  Also,
    none of the cities currently buy wood.  We do get access to a Mint,
    which requires silver, which is available at the bottom-lefthand corner
    on the map.  We also get a Sculpture Studio, which needs bronze.

    The introduction warns you of Kraken, which is an ugly dude.
    Unfortunately, your city doesn't produce very much.  One thing that you
    need is fleece.  You have to have that for your housing evolution.
    You should start importing goods before Kraken arrives in the waters.

    Cyprus will soon be discovered by explorers.  Cyprus will sell you
    bronze, which will be needed for building sculptures.  Cyprus will
    buy Wine.

    Argos will give you gifts of fleece.

    Hermes will eventually announce his quest for Perseus.  Perseus needs
    the following:

    - A Sanctuary to Athena
    - A Sanctuary to Hermes
    - 3000 Drachmas
    - 16 Skeins of Fleece
    - 6 Pieces of Sculpture

    To get the marble for the sanctuaries, you'll have to request it from
    Argos.  Sculptures can be made from bronze, which you can import via
    land trade from Cyprus.

    The Impressions walkthrough suggests that you limit your population
    at 1000.  Try doing that!  It's virtually impossible producing
    sufficient amounts of food for populations much larger than that.

    The sooner you are able to defeat Kraken the better.  This will
    allow you to build Piers along the river for trade.  You can also
    use the riverbank for a few fisheries.

    At one point or another, a city will trade wood, which will be great
    for you, since you can produce a ton of it.  My notes say that this
    place is Egypt.  They buy wood and wine, and sell wheat and armor.
    You could always import wheat (hint, hint) if you have a food problem.

    Argos will request food at one point.

    Let's talk money.  Importing wheat isn't a very expensive situation,
    but importing bronze is.  You can also import fleece from Argos,
    which can be an expensive proposition as well.  So, how do you
    compensate for all of this spending?  There are several ways.

    I suggest exporting wood, you can cut down a lot of timber.  Taxes.
    The higher the house has evolved, the more taxes they pay.  Wine.
    A lot of the cities buy wine.  You can open a wine industry.  But,
    you'll need the Grove of Dionysus.  Mints.  You can harvest the silver
    from the nearby silver-ore bearing rocks.  Also, you can build a
    Sanctuary to Hades.  His sanctuary has two large chunks of silver-ore
    bearing rocks, which can be harvested.  If you place the Mints just right,
    Hades can walk by them and bless them, thus turning out 4x the normal
    amount of drachmas.  Hades can also bless Tax Collectors, which will 
    temporary increase the amount of taxes the people pay.  You can pray
    to Hades, and he'll give you something like 4200 Drachmas.  This
    is a problem.  You can only build one or the other, either a sanctuary
    for Dionysus or one for Hades.  I went the route of Hades, but it's your
    decision.  Building more Mints will help out by bringing in more silver
    and Drachmas.

    Just as you are about to bring Argos into its full glory, some long-
    period trouble has reared its ugly head.  That ugly head belongs to
    Medusa, a consort of Poseidon, who has taken up the god's cause and
    vows to crush Argos!  If you don't find a way to vanquish the Gorgon,
    she might soon turn your entire city to stone!

    As you find a away to slay the horrible beast, you must continue to
    guide Argos to its destiny.  Diverse people continue to come to your
    city from far and near, and they will want diverse gods to worship.
    You should also take care of your colonies, making sure that they
    both enjoy all the resources available to Argos.  The city will be
    a shining example of what can be achieved when people band together.

    ------------------

    If you built the sanctuary for Hades, now is the time for the one for
    Dionysus.  If you built the one for Dionysus, now is the time for
    the one for Hades.

    This episode will require you to build Elite Housing.  In theory,
    you only need four elite houses to meet the 16 horsemen goal.
    You'll need to import wheat for the Horse Ranches to produce horses.
    You'll need bronze to produce armor.

    You will have to slay Medusa.  To do so, you'll need Perseus.  His
    requirements are:

    - A Sanctuary to Athena
    - A Sanctuary to Hermes
    - 3000 Drachmas
    - 16 Skeins of Fleece
    - 6 Pieces of Sculpture

    At one point, you'll receive a request for help from an ally.  You can
    build the Hero's Hall for Theseus if you want, but it's not necessary.
    I believe I either sent my horsemen or I sent Perseus instead.

    The land here is desolate and bare, but then so is most land in
    mountainous Greece.  It's a good place as any to establish a city,
    and you hve your good friend Theseus to help you.  He's out and about
    in Attica, visiting other small cities in the region and convincing
    them that they should place themselves under your wing.  Though the
    city of Athens itself might not have the resources to prosper, perhaps
    it can grow into a mighty city once it is banded together with its
    neighbors.

    There's only one problem with claiming land in Attica.  Minos, King of
    Knossos and master of the Minotaur, calls this land his own and won't
    take too kindly to someone trying to build a new city upon it.

    ------------------

    Map
    Upper left-hand corner has a small stream, some timber, and a fair
    amount of meadow.  Bottom left-hand corner has a lot of timber.  A
    little to the right of the timber is a large amount of rocky 
    outcroppings with timber and a plateau on the top.  The bottom right-
    hand corner has a lot of timber.  The upper right-hand corner has the
    same sort of rocky formation as described earlier, with the exception
    of the plateau.  On this plateau, there is a meadow.

    There really isn't much here.  Cheese is your only source of food.
    There aren't any industries.  Since there wasn't much in the panel,
    I chose to check out the World Map to see what kind of trouble I
    had to deal with.  I was amazed when I saw all the cities.  The
    majority of them haven't blossomed and become a great city yet,
    but I'm sure they will at one point.  You currently have four
    rivals (Delus, Knossos, Sardis, and Hattusas), while you only have
    two allies (Sparta and Corinth).  There is no Palace or Piers in the
    panel.

    Your housing block should be small, and centered on the western
    half of meadow area in the top left-hand corner.  Before you
    build your city, READ this walkthrough!

    I'm gonna give you the chain of events that I encountered during 
    this episode.

    Thermopylai will blossom.  They will be an Ally.  They buy Import
    Wheat and Olives, and they Export Fish.

    Knossos will want to invade.  Bribing cost me 150 Drachmas.

    Marathon blossoms.  They are an ally.  They Import Fleece and Olive
    Oil, and they Export Wheat and Wine.

    A month after Knossos invaded, the Minotaur entered the city.

    Thermopylai will sell more fleece.

    Marathon will become your vassal, and pay you 400 Drachmas in Tribute.

    Knossos will request Drachmas.

    Knossos will invade again, costing me 150 Drachmas in bribery.

    Thermopylai will become your vassal, and pay you 6 Baskets of Fish in
    Tribute.

    Got a gift of 12 Baskets of Fish from Thermopylai.

    My entire city had the following:

    - 1 Infirmary
    - 1 Fountain
    - 2 Granaries
    - 13 Dairies
    - 2 Maintenance Offices
    - 1 Trading Post for Thermopylai
    - 1 College
    - 1 Podium
    - 18 Housing Plots, which housed 432 people (Hovel)
                                     576 people (Homestead) **

    ** - This was after I got Fleece.  I needed the Fleece to upgrade
         the housing to meet the goal, plus I needed some Fleece for the
         goal.

    With my city, I had 66 people (22%) unemployed.  Don't worry about this
    whole unemployment thing, because it will be soaked up in the next
    episode.

    Remember, cheese is your friend.  My city was a lean, mean, cheese
    producing machine.  If have more than two granaries full of cheese,
    you can always give some of it away as gifts to Thermopylai and
    Marathon.

    Minos and his Minotaur, son of Minos' Queen Pasiphae and a bull, still
    plague Athens.  The time has come to cast off these burdens for good
    to prove that Athens can stand on its own two feet.  You must call
    Theseus, who is still traveling around Attica, back to the city, for
    only he can help you vanquish the minotaur.  You'll also need a sleek
    and powerful trireme to sail to Crete to defeat Minos.

    ------------------

    I immediately went to the world map to see if anything had changed.  You
    will gain another Ally, Plataia.  They buy sculpture and sell carrots.

    You will be given the opportunity to build Elite Houses in this episode.
    In addition to the Elite Housing, you can build a Palace, Tax Collector,
    Gymnasium, Hermes' Refuge, Hero's Hall for Theseus, Artisans' Guild, Wall,
    Gatehouse, Trireme Wharf, and you'll get the Aesthetics back.

    Sparta and Corinth will request Olive Oil from you.  Deny them their
    requests.  Neither city does anything good for you.

    Odessos will blossom.  They will be an Ally, who buys Grapes and Olive
    Oil, and sells Wheat and Marble.

    Sparta needs Olive Oil.

    Eretria blossoms.  They will be an Ally, who buys Wheat and Olive Oil,
    and sells Wine.

    Odessos becomes Vassal who will send 8 Slabs of Marble as tribute.

    Olympia will blossom.  They will be an Ally, who doesn't do any trading
    yet.

    Gift of 16 Jugs of Olive Oil from Olympia.

    Gift of 15 Suite of Armor from Olympia.

    Knossos demands 100 Drachmas.

    Earthquake in Southeast corner of map.

    Gift of 5 Planks of Olive Oil from Olympia.

    Gift of 8 Jugs of Olive Oil from Olympia.

    Gift of 5 Planks of Wood from Olympia.

    Corinth sells more fleece.

    Gift of 10 Suits of Armor from Olympia.

    Gift of 9 Jugs of Olive Oil from Olympia.

    Knossos invades.  Bribe costs 175 Drachmas.

    Gift of 5 Planks of Wood from Olympia.

    Knossos invades.  Bribe costs 200 Drachmas.

    It was time to invade Knossos.  I put up with enough of their crap.
    Taking them down wasn't easy.  It took Theseus, all 24 of my Hoplites,
    and a military strike by an Ally to take down Knossos.

    You now get to decide between two colonies.  I will cover them both,
    in the way I went through them.

    Theseus' dear friend Pirthous, leader of the Lapiths, happily wed
    Hippodamia in a sumpluous ceremony that featured the best food and wine
    that Greece has to offer.  When the thirsty centaurs heard about the
    ceremony, they couldn't resist the prospect of drinking the delicious
    wine, and attended the ceremony uninvited.  Pirthous and Hippodamia
    graciously greeted the centaurs at first, but centaurs aren't known for
    their self-control, and they were soon completely drunk.  The bespotted
    centaurs then did the unthinkable: They attempted to kidnap the bride!
    Pirthous was so outraged he has declared war on the centaurs, and
    Theseus has beseeched us to provide Pirthous with the raw materials
    he needs to make armor to help him in the war.

    An outpost here in Amphipolis will be perfectly suited to provide the
    raw materials that Pirthous needs the centaurs, however, are well aware
    of the bounty of the land around Amphipolis, and may prove to be
    unwelcome visitors again.

    Map
    There is a ton of timber on this map.  The growth of timber follows the
    'kingdom road' on the left-hand side of the map.  A river runs up the
    middle of the map.  The bottom right-hand corner has timber and a large
    Marble Quarry.  There is more timber at the top right-hand corner corner.
    If you look VERY close at the rocks, you'll see some copper-ore deposits.
    This is even easier to see if you are looking at the overview map.

    Panel
    You can build the following: Fishery, Timber Mill, Masonry Shop, Foundry,
    Palace, Tax Office, and the usual stuff.

    This city has only one purpose: turn out materials.  This is basically
    a factory city.  You just have to continue to churn out wood, marble,
    and copper for the other cities in Greece.

    This is an extremely simple episode to win.  You don't need to worry
    about evolving your housing every high, since you only need a small
    population to get the industries up and running.

    Olympia buys more Marble.

    What wise sage advised to hold your friends close and your enemies even
    closer?  Hippias, coward exiled from Athens long ago, has whispered his

    to help him!  Now, the battle has started, and Delos has entered the fray,

    sounded throughout Greece, and most city-states have agreed to set aside
    their differences and unite in one Greek front to help Delos and turn

    Walkthrough
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    The housing requirements should already be met.  Now is the time to really
    start to work on expanding your city.  Build two more regular housing
    blocks, and one more Elite Housing block.  You will need the extra workers
    (common housing) to man the Triremes, which need 100 employees each.

    Conquering Mt. Pelion would be a good idea here.  You can get a more steady
    supply of armor for your growing army.  You also need to start to produce
    a larger army, which will be needed to conquer all of the other city-states.

    In order to fatten your bankroll, import Bronze, and turn it into sculpture
    to sell it to Plataia.  Sculptures bring in something like 640 drachmas,
    which is quite a chunk of money.

    Olympia will demand wine, so give it to them, as you need their Olive
    Oil.  Continue to ignore Sparta and Corinth.  They will eventually become
    enemies, and there's no stopping that, so just ignore them.

    With this growing city, you need to watch your food levels.  If you are
    low, I suggest going with cheese.  Instead of just adding a bunch of
    Dairies, put more Goats in the Meadow.  Continue to add more Goats until
    you get a message at the top of the screen that says you need to build
    more Dairies before you can build more Goats.  Doing this will get the
    remaining workers from the Dairies.  If you find that you're producing
    WAY too much cheese, then give gifts of it to other cities.

    As for military, all I can say is build a big one, because you will need
    it now, and especially as you go further in this Adventure.

    Darius has indeed remembered the Athenians, and now he, his son Xerxes,
    and the entire Persian War Machine are on their way to Greece to
    avange the humiliating defeat we handed the barbarians!  Darius and the
    Persian fleet have set a swath of destruction through the Aegean, and 
    Xerxes with Persian army, having already put down rebellions in Egypt
    and Babylonia, are marching towards us from the north.  Already, Mount
    Pelion and Ithome have submitted to the Persians.

    After a conference on the Isthmus of Corinth, all city-states in Greece
    have agreed to unite to force the latest barbarian threat.  Even
    Corinth and Sparta agreed to go on the alliance, albiet reluctantly.  
    Even with all of Greece united, putting down the Persian military is 
    a daunting task.

    Your old friend Theseus has one of the strangest habits.  He's never
    satisfied with his current wife and is always on the lookout for a
    new bride.  Antiope, sister of amazon queen, Hippolyte, is the latest
    woman to catch his eye, and he has abducted her.  The Amazon nation
    is lot likely to stand idly by and just let their queen go.

    Meanwhile, strange things are afoot in Sparta and Corinth.  Spies report
    that both cities are mobilizing their military forces in what can only
    be [can't read my writing] purpose.  The Oracle of Apollo will come in
    handy to help you keep a watchful eye on their cities, but ultimately,
    Sparta must be subdued if you are going to fulfill your destiny.

    In the middle of all these troubles is Artemis.  The Amazons and Spartans
    are both her people, and she's bound to do something to help the both of 
    them.  Ares, too, loves these warlike people, so don't be surprised if he

    The time has come to build Athens into the greatest city Greece - The
    World - has ever known.  Athens will be a center of culture and
    learning, and the greatest heros will call the city home.  Only a few,
    monsterous obstacles remain in between you and the glorious destiny.
    Defeating three monsters could open up new possibilities.

    Theseus' womanizing habits [can't read my writing] have to cause
    problems for those associated with him.  He and his best friend,
    Pirthous, havd decided that they must marry daughters of Zeus.  Theseus
    and Pirthous are planning to raid the Underworld and steal Hades'
    wife, Persephone.  If Hades wouldn't let Persephone go back to her own
    mother, he surely won't give her up to Pirithous and Theseus!

    Meanwhile, Hercules has been off in the land of Elis, serving as King
    Augeas' stable boy.  He'll be looking for a new challenge soon, and Demeter
    might just have that for him.  Jealous of Artemis' Menagerie of animals,
    she has been looking for some livestock to call her own.

            Treasury of 3,000

    Zeus has put a curse on your family, the house of Aeolus, decreeing that
    it shall never rule an empire.  There is only one way to lift the curse,
    and you will need the help of three of Greece's most famous heroes.
    Theseus purportedly knows more about this curse, but Hades is holding the
    hero captive in the Underworld, and the great god will loose Cerberus
    upon anyone who dares to interfere with his plans for Theseus!

    Meanwhile, all of Greece is talking over the Centaurs' latest antics at
    Pirthous' wedding.  Intoxicated as usual, the Centaurs ruined the ceremony
    when they tried to carry off the bride.  Now, the Centaurs are on a
    drunken rampage through Greece, looking for more wine, and leaders of
    cities everywhere are jealously hoarding their supplies of the beverage.
    You would be wise to do the same should you receive some.

    ------------------

    Start your first housing block in the northwest corner of the map, near
    the immigration point.  This is the best starting point.

    As with all cities, you must concentrate your production on food and
    fleece, as those are the first two essential building blocks for
    upgrading your housing.  For food, you can produce cheese.  Produce
    cheese until it's coming out of your citizens' ears, and when you have
    too much, either export it or send it off as gifts.

    Early in this episode, two important events will take place: a quest, and
    you will be offered a gift of wine.  The quest will require Hercules.
    Hercules' hall needs wine in the city, so be sure to accept that gift.

    Build Hercules' hall, and right-click on it to see what else it needs.
    Hercules' Hall requires lots of cultural access, so that is an important
    aspect.

    Due to the nature of gifts of wine, build a Storehouse that's geared to
    "accepting" only wine.  Due to the lack of Olive Oil here, you can only
    gain "tenement" level for your housing.  These hold 40 people a piece,
    so to gain the 1500 population for Hercules' hall, you'll need 38 full
    tenements.

    Stymphalus will request food and wood on occasion.  They are your rivals,
    so it's up to you whether or not you send them what they want.  If
    they attack because you didn't give them the goods they wanted, try bribing
    them.

    Cerberus will make its way into the city north of the eastern meadow.  He
    will kill and people or sheep that get in its path, as well as destroy any
    nearby buildings.

    When your population is large enough, you can begin your wood industry.
    Lemnos is importing it, so sell it to them.

    Then, it's all up to Hercules to do the quest and kill Cerberus.

    Goals:  Fulfill a forthcoming quest
            Slay a Monster

    The immortals are quite busy these days!  Dionysus has become aware that
    you were instrumental in freeing Theseus from the Underworld!  The god
    is quite please by this news because he needs Theseus' help.  Who knows?
    Maybe if you can convince Theseus to help Dionysus, the God of the Vine
    might reward you.

    Unlike Dionysus, Artemis is completely fed up with mortals.  It seems
    that a goddess cannot bathe anywhere any more without some mortal
    peeping at her.  The goddess is so completely disgusted that she's
    decided to release her entire collection of oversized stags, boars, lions,
    and hares into the world to vent a fury on all mortals.

    If you ever find yourself in need of Theseus' help, you should know that
    his Hall must be located close to the city's Palace.  After you build the
    Hall, right-click on it to see if you have it close enough.

    ------------------

    You will get the opportunity for going on yet another quest.  However,
    before that happens, continue to trade wood, cheese, and fleece.
    Theseus will eventually become available for the quest.  You are also
    given the opportunity to build a Palace, which will allow you to make
    a military, and you'll also need the Palace, since Theseus' Hall must
    be built near it.

    You should be receiving plenty of wine and marble in gifts.  You can
    send excess cheese, wood, and fleece away as gifts.  If the Calydonian
    Boar hasn't appeared int he city at this point, send Theseus on the quest.

    Before Theseus left your city, he told you a sad story: 'Once, two
    children, Phrixus and Helle, were in grave danger and tried to escape
    across the sea on the back of a golden, winged ram.  Helle lost her grip
    on the animal and plunged into the sea, but Phrixus managed to hold on.
    When he arrived in Colchis, he sacrificed the ram to Zeus and gave King
    Aeetus, Colchis' ruler, the fleece.  Retrieve th Golden Fleece, and
    Zeus' curse will be lifted, but returning the fleece to Greece - hee hee,
    that rhymes! - won't be easy.  You'll require the services of a third,
    great hero.

    In other news, Hercules has been busy scaring birds away from Stymphalus.
    These weren't your garden-variety sparrows!  These were huge, ravenous
    birds that weren't picky about what they put in their beaks: animals,
    crops, humans - everything tasted good to them.  Luckily, Hercules
    managed to drive the birds away with Hephaestus' castanets - though
    no one is sure if it as the noise of the castanets that scared the
    birds off, or the flamenco that Hercules performed as an accompaniment.
    Regardless, Agapenon, the leader of Stymphalus, is very thankful for
    Hercules' help.

    When you honor Athena with a sanctuary, she will plant a sacred grove
    of olive trees for your citizens, and you can ask her for gifts of
    olives and olive oil.  You will certainly need her help to suceed here.

    ------------------

    Elite Housing and the Arbor of Athena have to be two missions here.
    Athena will be needed to provide Olive Oil for the Elite Housing.  You
    will have to rely on Naxos for your sculptures.

    Wheat Farms will be required here.  Without wheat, you cannot build the
    horses that are required for Jason to make his appearance.  You also
    have to set aside some wheat for a colony.

    Once Olive Oil becomes available (after you build the sanctuary), be
    sure that your common housing gets some of it.  This will allow them
    to upgrade, and will allow for more people to move in, and you'll get
    a larger workforce.

    Put your Elite Housing block down once you have a supply of Olive Oil.

    Since upgrading the common housing has boosted the workforce, you
    should be able to build Triremes.  Trireme Wharves need 100 employees
    each, so if you don't have 300 employees, build another small common
    housing block.

                     The Way of the Sickle (Corcyra Colony)
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    Goals:  Sanctuary to Dionysus
            32 Amphorae of Wine for Parent City
            32 Sheaves of Wheat for Parent City
            16 Pieces of Sculpture for Parent City

    The Island of Corcyra is Dionysus' gift to you for helping him retrieve
    the Horn of Amalthea.  The island is the home of his nurse, Macris, who
    is also one of Demeter's favority nymphs.  As a result, this land is
    doubly blessed - It is perfect for the cultivation of both grapes and 
    wheat.  Dionysus is feeling generious and might reward you even further
    if you build a sacred grove in his honor.

    ------------------

    Combat won't be the focus on this level.  Instead, you have to make
    a working economy.

    Start by building a common housing block.  Iolcus will send you olive
    oil, fleece, and wheat, so have a Storehouse and Granary to accept those
    goods.

    The faster you evolve your housing, the better.  Do this with culture
    access, the gifts of various goods, and appeal.

    When you've got a fairly large workforce, start your wine industry.
    You will need lots of cash so you can import the sculptures that you need
    to build the sancturay for Dionysus, and the 16 you'll need for your
    Parent city.

    Once the wine industry is thriving, and you're getting plenty of cash
    for exporting it, begin importing marble and wood.  You'll also need that
    to complete the sanctuary for Dionysus.

                     The Way of the Sword (Corinth Colony)
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    Goals:  Support 2 Triremes
            Support 12 Hoplites or better
            Produce 36 suits of armor in one year

    Since I didn't choose this level, I don't know the story leading into
    it.  The walkthrough is taken from the Official Zeus site.

    ------------------

    One word: lava! In Corinth you are asked to build a big city replete with
    large-scale industrialization and an Elite Housing district. But if you
    happen to build this city in the wrong place, you are going to seriously
    regret it. Why? Because a few years into the episode there is going to be
    a huge earthquake and volcanic eruption in the northeast corner of the
    playing area, right about where most people decide to do their building.
    You can save yourself a lot of grief by planning your city with this in
    mind.

    Build your Common Housing block on the lower plateau near the southeast 
    corner of the playing area. Gifts of food, fleece, and olive oil from 
    Iolcus should be enough to get you started. Next build a large wheat 
    industry to supply food to your growing population. You may eventually 
    need to import fleece and olive oil, but for now you can survive off the 
    supplies sent from Iolcus.

    As soon as your employment situation allows, set up a large bronze and 
    armor industry on the plateau containing the copper deposits. You will 
    need armor for your elite housing, for export, and for requests by 
    allies, particularly Iolcus. Also, develop a wine industry for exporting
    and for supplying your Elite Housing.

    You will need to set up a small Elite Housing district to support the 
    twelve hoplites required. You may want to wait until after the lava hits 
    so you can avoid having all your work destroyed. You will need only three 
    Manors to support the twelve hoplites.

    Eventually, a huge earthquake will rip through the meadow. You can build 
    small bridges over the cracks in the ground, but there's not much point, 
    because soon the lava will come and make the ground it burns permanently 
    impassable. Afterwards, you can rebuild anything that was destroyed in 
    the land not eaten up by the lava flow.

    To meet the armor production requirement, you will need nine or ten 
    Armories working full-tilt for a year. You can then harvest the 
    additional wood you need to build the two triremes.

    You will probably be subjected to several invasions from your rivals. At 
    least some of these invasions will probably be by sea. One way to deal 
    with sea invasions is to try to sink the enemy transports before they 
    land. You can do this with triremes or with rabble units stationed along 
    the shoreline. The rabble will unleash a hail of stones and may be able 
    to sink the transport ships before they unload their deadly cargo.

    When you have finished meeting the three goals, you will be sent back to 
    Iolcus to complete the adventure.

                                 Iolcus Thrives

    Goals:  4 Trading Partners
            Sanctuary to Zeus
            Population of 4000
            Treasury of 10000
            72 People in Residence

    Iolcus is on the verge of becoming the pre-eminent power in all of Greece.
    With a colony to call your own, you have begun to build a kingdom.  Now,
    you have begun to build a kingdom.  Now, you must spread your influence
    throughout Greece, making friends with those who treat you with respect
    and putting down those who oppose you.  As you near the end of your journey,
    Iolcus will shine forth, and its power will not be eclipsed.

    It is now time to thank Zeus for lifting the curse on your house and 
    enabling you to become a great leader.  Building a sanctuary in his honor 
    is sure to please him, and he smiles upon you.

    ------------------

    Tax Offices are finally available.  Begin taxing the city as soon as you
    can.  The Elite Housing pays the most for taxes, so be sure that they
    are passed by a clerk.

    Try and get your Elite Housing some horses.  Horsemen are better in combat,
    and you will have a little bit of combat on this level, since you need
    4 trading partners.  Conquer Lemnos when you have a nice army.  You will
    now get them as a trading partner.

    When you have the proper amount of marble, begin building Zeus' sanctuary.
    Getting the goods could be troublesome.  If you have a large army and
    navy, you could raid the cities for large amounts of marble and sculptures.
    Since you have Allies, you could just conquer them, and make them your
    Vassals, thus paying you a tribute.

    Conquer cities until you have your 4 required trading partners.  After that,
    just work on your Elite Housing to match the requirement.

    The Seer emerged from the Oracle at Delphi and uttered these words:
    'I see two people walking together towards greatness.  One of these
    people is a hulking man, stronger than anyone else in the world.  The
    other person is incredibly good-looking and extremely smart.  Hercules
    is the muscle-bound man, a son of Zeus who has incurred the wrath of
    Hera, Zeus' wife.  She drove Hercules to madness, and he killed his wife
    and children.  Since that fateful day, he has traveled around Greece,
    doing good deeds to atone for his sins.

    'The incredibly good-looking and smart person is you.  You are destined
    to become the ruler of a great dominion, and some of the immortals
    will call you friend.  But that day is some time from now, and you have
    much to do before that beautiful day dawns.  Along the way, your fate
    and Hercules' fate will be intertwined.  His enemies will become your
    enemies, his friends, your friends.  Your path to glory begins with
    establishing the city of Tiyrns in Argolis and introducing it to the
    world!

    You'll have plenty of time to build Tiyrns into a thriving metropolis
    later.  If you try to build a large city now, you will have difficulty
    later.

    ------------------

    Start a housing block near the immigrant entrance.  Do not build a huge
    city here.  You can't afford to do it this early in the game.  Instead,
    concentrate on a few dozen houses.  Just meet your requirement, that's
    a good suggestion.

    A thriving fleece industry will be very important.  Fleece is needed for
    the development of housing, thus other cities will want it (via trade).

    To get the housing to the Tenement level, provide food, fleece, culture,
    and some appeal.  Exporting excess fleece would be wise, as it brings in
    a little more money.

            18 Bars of Bronze for Parent City
            8 Planks of Wood for Parent City

    Traders from the amazon city of Cyme have told you about this spot, and 
    it is exactly as they described: rich in copper ore.  Certainly no one 
    from Greece has ever ventured into this area, and it is rumored that the 
    Amazon capital is nearby.  If the gods hear that you've discovered the 
    city, one of them just might ask you to find something else...

    ------------------

    This colony is only here to provide wood and bronze, so you will not need
    a large city here....it's more of a "work camp".

    Throw down a housing block near the immigration point, and search for
    urchins, which will provide you with some food.  As I already mentioned,
    a high housing development isn't really necessary.  Tenement level
    will be more than enough.  You will, however, need a population of
    1500 to call for Hercules, so he can take care of the quest.

                               Gods In The World
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    Goals:  Slay a Monster
            Sanctuary to any god

    While you were busy establishing a colony, Hercules was headed for Troy
    where he whisked Hesione, Princess of Troy, out of the jaws of
    Poseidon's gruesome Kraken.  How did Hesione manage to find herself in 
    this scrape?  Her father, King Laomedon, refused to keep his promise to 
    pay Apollo and Poseidon for building the walls of Troy.  So, the gods 
    punished Troy with plagues and floods, and the only way for Laomedon 
    to save his city was to sacrifice his daughter.

    Now, Poseidon and Apollo are enraged that Hercules has meddled in their
    affairs...and they are well aware of your connection to this hero!  And
    the Kraken, whose taste buds were primed for a bite of himan, is very
    hungry.  Elsewhere in the world, The Centaurs, who are always on the
    look out for a new source of wine, have taken notice of you and your
    kingdom.  Trouble might not be far off!

    ------------------

    Hercules seems to be causing more trouble than he's doing good at this
    point in time.  You'll have to think fast in a few situations here,
    so be prepared.

    You can export fleece and import olive oil from Lerna, so build a Trading
    Post with them.  Since you'll need to build a Sanctuary, you will need
    some sculptures.  So, you'll have to get some bronze if you're going to
    make them.  You'll also need wood for the Sanctuary.

    For the remainder of the required goods for the Sanctuary, you'll have
    yo wait for Mount Pelion to blossom.  The Centaurs own Mount Pelion
    and Mount Malea, so they will request wine.

    Get ready for Kraken.  You'll need to get Perseus for this job.  With
    Kraken wandering your waters, it's wise to keep an eye on where he is.
    Keep any Piers somewhat empty, since Kraken will come along and tear it
    to shreads.

    Get your fleece industry going!  A while back (different adventure) I
    said that you should build a big cheese industry.  Do the same with
    fleece.  You'll need to develop a large treasury for the upcoming colonies.
    You should also find plenty of trading partners for the fleece.

                            The Hydra (Lerna Colony)

    Goals:  Slay a monster
            Fulfill a forthcoming quest

    Lerna is a place of great beauty, with fertile land perfect for the
    cultivation of Olive Trees and Grapevines, and a lake filled with
    plentiful fish - A perfect paradise except for creating little multi-headed
    problem.  The hideous Hydra stalks the shores of the lake, destroying
    anything that comes in its path.  Only your friend Hercules is strong
    enough to dispatch this creature, and rumor has it Aphrodite is looking
    for a hero to help her find some vegetable or fruit ot something.  The
    gods can be so hard to understand.

    ------------------

    Hercules will be in demand on this episode.  He's involved in both getting
    the quest done and killing Hydra.

    Lerna can produce olive oil and wine, but you'll need fleece for this
    level.  Fleece and olive oil, of course, are both needed to evolve your
    housing.  Wine will be needed for Hercules.


    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                             War with The Centaurs
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    Goals:  Support 8 Hoplites or Better
            Population of 2500

    Did you ever hear the one about Hercules and Pholus?  It seems that the
    hero had wandered deep into the Centaur territory of Erymanthus in
    pursuit of a boar when he grew quite thirsty.  The Centaur Pholus was
    willing to share his wine with Hercules, and they were soon raising flagon
    after flagon of the beverage.  It wasn't long before a horde of other
    centaurs decided to join the party!  One thing led to another, as things
    usually do when there's wine involved, and Hercules slew many of them
    in self-defense.  The Centaurs, of course, are none too pleased and are
    plotting their revenge against Hercules and anyone associated with him.

    ------------------

    Increasing your population will be the first objective, if you don't
    already meet the goal, that is.  ^_^  In order to meet the Hoplite
    requirement, you'll need armor and wine, since you have to develop a
    small Elite Housing block.


    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                         The Fallen God (Lemnos Colony)
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    Goals:  Population of 2000
            Sanctuary to Aphrodite

    Poor Lemnos was in the wrong place at the wrong time.  Once, Hephaestus
    enraged Zeus by disobeying him.  Zeus cast Hephaestus to the earth from
    high atop Mount Olympus.  Unfortunately for Lemnos, Hephaestus landed
    right on top of it, and the impact stirred up the land so that what 
    once used to lie underneath it was now on top of it.

    When Hephaestus tried to stand up after his fall, he found that he had
    been lamed!  It was useless for Hephaestus to try and retaliate against
    Zeus - afterall, tangling with Zeus was what got him inito this mess 
    in the first place.  So, Hephaestus decided to take his anger out on the
    island that broke his fall, and he has been pounding the land ever since.

    Due to the strange geography of Lemnos, getting food to your people can
    be very time consuming.  If your population grows too large, you'll have
    trouble feeding everybody!

    ------------------

    The way I chose my colonies was a little bit backwards, since in the
    last one, we needed a population of 2500, and this one needs 2000.
    Oh well, it makes this one that much easier I guess.  ^_^

    This is the land of mining.  Silver and Marble will be key here.
    Silver, of course, serves as a source of instant money.  Marble
    can be exported, given away as gifts, requested from Tiryns, and
    used for the Sanctuary.

    Surf's up, dude!  No, really.  Tidal waves will occasionally come to
    shore, so be on the alert.  Building the sanctuary faster is better.
    Hephaestus will invade, and your city can't take punishment from him
    forever.  Get the sanctuary finished, so Aphrodite can deal with the
    problem.

    It seems ages now since you first heard how your fate woule be 
    intertwined with Hercules.  Many of the friends you had then are now
    your enemies, and one of your oldest enemies has become your friend.
    Nemea is now an ally, thanks to the exploits of the great Hercules,
    who has killed a ferocious lion that was attacking the city.  Grateful
    Ronphus, Nemea's ruler, has begun rebuilding his decimated city.

    The Amazons and Centaurs, who were once your friends, continue to cause
    trouble and the time has come to exert your dominance over them.
    Capturing Mount Pelion, a prominent Centaur stronghold, will send them
    a loud and clear message that you are not to be trifled with.

    Of course, the more things change, the more they stay the same.  Apollo,
    Poseidon, and Hephaestus still have [can't read my writing] plans to
    extract revenge on you.  His time to call Zeus, Hercules' father, to ensure
    that these warring deities will never be able to harm the city again.

    ------------------

    Get your elite housing as advanced as you can here, as the more Hoplites,
    the better.  You'll need them for overtaking Mount Pelion, since they
    will be a source of marble, which is needed for the sanctuary to Zeus.

    You will probably be attacked several times in this episode, so make sure
    that you have armor to support the army.  Defend your city until you meet
    the rest of the requirements.

    Not so long ago, Sparta was the greatest city in the Peloponnese.
    Menelaus and his beautiful wife Helen ruled over all, and people
    were content.  But then, Paris of Troy abducted Helen, and a great
    war broke out.  Through cunning and strength, our soldiers won the
    war, but things weren't the same when Menelaus returned to Sparta.
    The city sooncrumbled, and only a few ruins remain of what was once
    a glorious city.

    The time has come to establish a new Sparta on new land!  The new
    Sparta will rise in glory and power, and one day eclipse the prestige
    of the old Sparta!

    ------------------

    Throw down a housing block near the immigration point.  Build a Hunting
    Lodge or two to get a little food in the city.  When employment allows,
    start wheat farms.  You can export wheat to turn a profit, which will
    be important.

    Get some fleece into your city.  You'll also need some culture and
    appeal, and soon you'll meet the Homestead housing requirement.


    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                               Sparta On The Rise
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    Goals:  Sanctuary to Ares
            Rule Olympia

    If we are to build a mighty army, our citizens must have some olive oil.
    We don't seem to have any here in Sparta, but word is that puny city
    Olympia makes it.  We haven't had any fun in so long - let's go take
    over Olympia and get their olive oil!  We could probably get Corinth
    to join us, andmaybe our beloved Ares will come along!  Maybe Olympia
    will get word of our plans and even try and attack us!  Wouldn't that 
    be a gas?

    Meanwhile, the cult of Dionysus is on the rise in Greece.  Wine does have
    its purpose - A drop or two can go a long way to quenching one's thirst.
    But, why anyone would drink to excess is a mystery.  Still, the drunken
    lout seems to hold a strange appeal to others around the country, and
    they would swoon at the mere mention of his name.

    And, what is the rising in the east like the sun?  We hear rumblings
    of a new empire that is gaining some prominence.

    ------------------

    Use all of the wheat that you're making to give as gifts to Thermopylai
    and Athens, since they both produce marble, which you will need for the
    sanctuary to Ares.

    When making the sculptures for the sanctuary, you only need two, but you
    can sell excess ones to Corinth.  This will allow you to make additional
    money, which can be used in the next episode.

    Once you get Ares' Fortress built, conquer Olympia.  It shouldn't take
    much if you send Ares and his Guards.

            20 Sheaves of Wheat for Colony
            2 Sanctuaries
            80 People in Mansion or Better

    The leader of that upstart empire causing so much trouble for those
    feeble cities has finally reveiled himself.  He calls himself Darius,
    King of Persia, and he is quite a jokester.  He has sent word that he
    claims Sparta, along with the rest of Greece, as a subject!  Maybe a
    mere declaration of supiority is enough for wine-soaked cities like
    Eretria to surrender, but that silly little ploy isn't going to work
    on us!

    I don't know why we've been dragged into this, because this is Athens' 
    problem anyway.  The Athenians started a revolt in Ionia, and now that
    Darius is attacking them in return, they realize that they've bitten
    off more than they can chew.  Gluttony just doesn't get you anywhere!

    Hipponac of Corinth has the right ideas, though.  He's planning on an 
    all-out attack on Sardis, the capital of those barbarian Persians.

    ------------------

    This level will require you to make a large elite housing area.  The
    elite housing is required for the goal, of course, but it is also
    necessary for defending your city as well as conquering other cities.
    Elite housing also allows you to make more money.  This is due to the
    tax increase, which is quite large.

    By now some common sense has come into play.  Importing raw good and
    making them into finished goods is much cheaper than just importing
    the finished goods.  Since acquiring all of the necessary goods for
    an elite housing area can be expensive, try and make what you need by
    importing things.  As I've mentioned, the elite housing area is
    important, and this episode allows you to build up to Estate level,
    which will allow for four horsemen at a single estate.  Horsemen
    are a distinct advantage (2X as powerful as a hoplite), and it would
    aid in your chances in defeating youe enemy.

    If you choose Hephaestus for the sanctuary, he will provide you with
    deposits of copper ore, which could be used for producing armor, which,
    of course, will be used for your army.

    Taras looks to be the perfect place to station a Spartan army.  Plus,
    our spies have told us that somewhere in the vicinity is the city of
    Odessos, Athens' source of wheat.  If we can crush Odessos and cut off
    Athens' food supply, then Athens' downfall is certain.  And, our great
    god Ares has promised to help us find Odessos if we help him to retrieve
    something he wants!

    ------------------

    Use the wheat and fleece you get from Sparta to get your city started.
    You'll need to get a decent-sized common housing city here, as well as
    an Elite Housing area.  For food, go after the boars and go fishing.
    You will need to grow grapes to produce wine.  The wine will be needed
    for Hercules and his hall.  Once you've summoned him, you can export
    any excess wine for profit.

    You will have to do some importing of wheat, olive oil, and armor.  These
    things will be needed for the elite housing.  Hold off on Hercules' Hall
    until you've gotten your elite housing set up.  Once Hercules returns from
    his request, send everyone after Odessos, and you'll win this episode.

            Support 2 Triremes

    Since I didn't choose this level, I don't know the story leading into
    it.  The walkthrough is taken from the Official Zeus site.

    ------------------

    Like Taras, Ithaca is made up of a string of islands. However, it has more 
    room on which to build. You're going to need it, since this episode 
    requires a lot of workers.

    The introduction to Ithaca provides some good strategic hints. Two 
    fearsome monsters, both of which require Odysseus to be killed, will 
    terrorize you. Scylla is a particularly nasty monster who will make 
    it hard for you to gather food from the seas around Ithaca. Therefore, 
    make summoning Odysseus your primary goal. The requirements for his 
    Hall include:

    - Excellent popularity
    - Excellent city-wide health
    - 8 elite houses
    - 32 jugs of olive oil
    - 16 amphorae of wine

    As you can see, Odysseus is quite a demanding Hero. Focus on meeting 
    these requirements as quickly as possible.

    Start by building your housing block not too far from the immigrant 
    entrance in the top-right corner of the playing area. Gather urchins 
    along the shore and set up Fisheries for additional food. Hint: you 
    can greatly increase the yield from urchin gatherers and fishermen 
    by following two rules. First, place the Fisheries and Urchin Quays 
    as close as possible to the food source. Second, place an "accepting" 
    granary right next to the buildings. These two steps can more than 
    double rate at which these workers gather and store food. To get food 
    to your housing, build a granary near the agora set to "get" fish and 
    urchins.

    Scylla will occasionally drop in on your coastal food industries and 
    mangle a few buildings. Be quick to replace any that are lost.

    You will receive gifts of food and fleece from Sparta, so build a 
    Granary and Storehouse to store them. These should help you evolve 
    your housing up to Tenement level while you begin expanding your city. 
    You will eventually need to import fleece. To further evolve your 
    housing, import olive oil as well.

    Set up a large marble industry. Marble can be exported to Elis and 
    Olympia. Note that Hermes will continuously harass Elis during the 
    episode, often cutting off trade with them. Still, even when you aren't 
    able to trade with Elis, you can send them gifts of marble to butter them
    up, and then request goods or cash from them in return.

    You will need fleece and olive oil just to place the eight elite houses, 
    in addition to the amount you will need stored to summon Odysseus. You 
    have a choice. You can import and/or request these goods early in the 
    mission, or you can take the time to develop triremes to raid your rivals 
    for the goods, as suggested in the introduction. Triremes require wood, 
    armor, and lots of workers. You can produce wood with Timber Mills. For 
    armor you can import it, request it, or manufacture it with imported 
    bronze. Importing bronze and exporting armor is also a good way to make 
    lots of money in Ithaca.

    Whether you get the goods for Odysseus by guile or by force, move 
    quickly. Already Scylla is harassing your shores, and Cyclops is on the 
    way. To summon Odysseus, you also need to have excellent popularity. 
    Popularity can be seen on the overview control panel tab. Increase 
    popularity by lowering taxes and raising wages. Keep an eye on your 
    employment situation, since tinkering with wages affects the number of 
    workers in your workforce.

    You also need to ensure that you have excellent citywide health. Use the 
    hygiene overlay in the hygiene and safety control panel to see which 
    houses need healer access.

    Once you accomplish all these goals, summon Odysseus. Hopefully, you will
    be able to do this before the Cyclops invades.

    Having killed the monsters, you need only build two triremes (if you 
    haven't already) and conquer Delos. Sending the two triremes and Odysseus 
    should be enough, but if you throw in a few hoplites and maybe the help of
    an ally, you will be sure to triumph. Then it's on the grand finale!

            50 People in Estate or Better

    Athens has really gotten too big for its britches!  They have attacked
    Melos, killing all of its men and enslaving its women and children, for
    refising to participate in that silly Delian League!  It's up to us to
    put an end to this foolishness!  As soon as we conquer Athens, Amphipolis,
    Delos, and Eretria, we can return the world to normal.

    ------------------

    Just by looking at the name of this episode should give you an inclination
    for what you'll be in for here.  You will have to build up your Elite
    Housing, because you will have a lot of military action to take on, and
    I don't mean just offensive.  You will be attacked from the various other
    nations, so be prepared.  You can use walls and whatnot to aid in the
    defense of your city.

    Some will attack via the sea, so try and sink the boats before they
    land their troops.

                                    The Oath
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    Goals:  Produce 64 Sheaves of Wheat in One Year
            Produce 16 Amphorae of Wine in One Year
            1000 People in Townhouse or Better
            Treasury of 5000

    The conversation at the dinner table tirned from the subject of the
    city you were on the verge of establishing to the fair Helen, beloved
    by everyone in Greece, who was about to choose a husband.  Odysseus
    said, 'Let us all swear an oath to protect Helen and to support the man
    whom she chooses as a husband!  We owe her no less!  We shall name the
    oath after Helen's father and call it to the Oath of Tyndaneus!'  All
    shouted in assent, and Odysseus administered the oath to each person.
    Everyone was too busy celebrating to notice that Odysseus did not take
    the oath himself, but the hero wouldn't have less than noble intentions.

    Now that the festivities are over, you must return to your land to begin
    building the kingdom of Aulis is earned.  Soon, your city will match the
    cities that your friends Agamnemnon, Odysseus, and Ajax lead!  You can
    count on your friends sending you city-warming presents to help you start
    your city.

    ------------------

    Begin the city near the immigration point, of course.  Use the nearby
    meadow to place a half-dozen Wheat Farms.  This will get you plenty of
    food, and it also is required for a goal.  Remember that you'll need
    a full dozen or so to meet the goal, so you will need to gradually add
    more and more farms.

    After you've got the wheat farms up, you'll want to start your fleece
    and olive oil industry.  These products are required for the evolution
    of your housing.  You should also set up a Gymnasium or two, depending
    on how large your city is, as this will evolve your housing.

    Wine is your next priority.  Build a bunch (7-10) wineries to handle
    this chore.  Once you have the wine industry running well, you can
    meet the goal, and you can also export excess wine.

    At the wedding of Thetis and Peleus, Paris of Troy was asked to award
    a golden apple to the most beautiful goddess.  The contestants were
    Athena, Hera, and Aphrodite.  'Very nice, ladies.  That concludes the
    talent portion of our competition.  Now, the Interview:  If you are
    crowned most beautiful goddess,' Paris asked the women, 'what would
    you do?'  Hera replied, 'If I win, I'll use my title to bring world
    peace and to help all the little animals.'  'If I win,' Athena said,
    'I'll make sure that everyone has olive oil and bake everyone a batch
    of cookies!'  Finally, Aphrodite said, 'If you choose me, I'll arrange
    for you to take Helen, the most beautiful woman in Greece, as your
    wife.  I hope I win, because I just love golden apples!'  Paris
    carefully considered each goddess' answers, but, intrigued by the
    prospect of being married to the most beautiful woman in Greece, chose
    Aphrodite.  It was not long before Paris found Helen, tore her away from
    her husband, and brought her back to Troy.

    Now, Menelaus has declared war on Troy, and everyone bound by the Oath
    of Tyndaneus is rallying to his side, and other leaders have taken up
    Troy's part.  Calchas the Seer had this to say about the impending war:
    'Though rescuing fair Helen may seem simple, be forwarned that many
    pbstacles will stand in your way.  Many will be old and gray by the
    time they return home.'

    Agamnemnon and his soldiers have already left Greece to attack Troy,
    but Troy's walls, built by Apollo and Poseidon, are incredibly strong.
    Only an intense, continual siege will be enough to break through the
    walls, and this type of onslaught will only be possible if the Greeks
    have a camp close to Troy.  But,mayb e Agamnemnon will be lucky...

    On the home front, you must prepare for further attacks on Troy by 
    asking other cities to give what they can to you to support the war 
    effort.

    ------------------

    The goals here are very easy to meet.  Just use your knowledge of Zeus
    so far to complete this level.  
    
    One thing you should know is a higher (20,000 - 30,000) treasury will give 
    you a better shot if you choose to go to Tenedos after this episode is 
    over.  -- Rob

                      The Great God Zeus (Pergamum Colony)
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    Goals:  Sanctuary to Athena
            Sanctuary to Zeus
            Population of 2000

    The Seer from the Oracle has yet another prophecy: 'This far, Zeus has
    been on the sidelines of this great wat.  Build him a Sanctuary, and he
    will gladly join your side.  The Trojans won't stand a chance.  Build
    a Sanctuary to the great goddess Athena, too, and she will protect the
    city from harm!

    Of course, building a sanctuary to Zeus in the heart of Ionia is bound
    to rile up the gods that have taken Troy's side, and they won't be too 
    thrilled about the sanctuary to Athena, either.  They won't hesitate to
    make your life miserable and do what they can to prevent you from
    constructng the sanctuary.  It would be wise to begin construction on
    the sanctuaries as soon as you can.  The sooner you have both of these
    gods firmly in your corner, the better off you'll be.

    You may need to rely on your allies or even your rivals for the things you
    need to make the city thrive.

    ------------------

    Here's a wonderful level.  It's not very common that you'll have to
    build more than one Sanctuary in a Colony, and this is the exception.

    Start your housing block near the immigration point, ans set up a few
    granaries and trading posts, as you will be receiving a lot of gifts
    from Aulis to start the city off with.

    While you're upgrading your housing with the gifts from Aulis and by
    using culture and aesthetics, work on the permanent aspects of the city.
    Relying on gifts for a city will not get you far, so get the traditional
    industries and trading posts up, so you can make goods, and trade them
    with other cities.  You'll need to import Olive Oil to upgrade your
    housing.

    I earlier mentioned Sanctuaries.  You'll want to begin importing wood and
    marble amost immediately, since you've got some mighty big sanctuaries
    to construct.  To decrease the amount of olive oil you'll need to import,
    start with Athena's sanctuary.  You can pray to her for olive oil.  :-)
    You'll also want to get the Bronze industry running.  Bronze is required
    in the production of sculptures, which will be required for the sanctuaries,
    and you'll need several of them for the sanctuaries.


    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                               The Hero Odysseus
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    Goals:  Fulfill a forthcoming quest
            16 Planks of Wood for colony
            32 Skeins of Fleece for colony
            16 Jugs of Olive Oil for colony
            64 Sheaves of Wheat for colony
            24 Suits of Armor for colony

    Just outside the walls of Troy, the Greek army captured an old man named
    Helenus.  Like most old men in Greece, Helenus was a great seer, and he
    weighed in with his two drachmas: 'Did anyone mention the Palladium yet?
    There is an object held within Troy's walls, an object that Poseidon
    himself gave to the city when he was building its walls.  Troy will never
    fall as long as it has possession of this object.  You'll need to retrieve
    this object if you went to win the war!

    Only Odysseus, grand son of the master thief Autolycus, will be able to
    retrieve this magical object, and the great hero has been acting quite
    strangely lately.  He is the only great leader who has yet to participate
    in the war effort against Troy, pointing out that he never swore the Oath
    of Tyndareus.  Later, he was spotted laughing hysterically, sowing salt
    into earth around his Palace, rendering it infertile.  Crazy or not,
    Odysseus is the only one who can help.  Maybe if you offer him plenty of
    wine and olive oil and a lovely hall to call home, he'll come to Aulis,
    though who knows what will happen to Ithaca if he leaves the city behind...

    ------------------

    Get your trade routes back if possible.  That's one of the first things
    you'll need to do.  You'll be needing to do a lot of requesting/trading
    on this episode, as this is a key episode.  The things you do on this
    level will determine how difficult the next episode is, which is said
    to be extremely difficult, but that's all up to this episode.

    The next step is common housing.  You will need to add a lot more houses
    to the city.  The extra employees will be needed in the new buildings
    that will be used in the elite housing area.  Those buildings require
    a lot of people to operate them.

    Get armor!  You will need lots and lots of armor.  Its purpose will be
    for the elite housing, which needs it for the troops living there,
    and you'll need plenty of it.  You will be making a large army here.
    Unfortunately, Hoplites are as high as you can go for the troops.

    Sooner or later you'll receive the request, which Odysseus is needed.
    His hall needs:

    - Excellent Popularity
    - Excellent City Wide Health
    - 8 Elite Houses
    - 32 Jugs of Olive Oil
    - 16 Amphorae of Wine

    Don't leave this city after you've got the request fulfilled.  Just don't
    leave just yet.  Now's the time to build up your treasury.  Also, it's
    time to attack rivals.  Attacking and conquering rivals now will be helpful
    in future episodes.

                     Achilles The Warrior (Tenedos Colony)
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    Goals:  Slay a monster
            Rule Lyrnessus
            Support 32 Hoplites or Better
            Fulfill a forthcoming quest
            Rule Cyme

    Calshas the Seer had this to say: 'To successfully conquer Troy, you'll
    need the help of the hero Achilles.  Achilles was once a willing
    participant in the war, but Agamnemnon managed to offend him somehow...
    heroes can be so touchy.  You'll have to gently convince him to return
    to the fray, and maybe the gods will help you convince Achilles to fight.'

    While you try and convince Achilles to return to the fighting, you should
    build Tenedus into a strong military base that will help you conquer Troy.
    Since it is devoid of natural resources, you'll have to rely on others
    to acquire the goods you need, and you can of course raid your rivals.
    Naturally, Troy won't stand idly by and let you build a military
    stronghold in its backyard.  The Trojans just might turn to their favorite
    son, Hector, to cause you trouble.  Of course, the big, strong Hector is
    a favorite with Aphrodite...

    Remember that Calchas also prophesied that manny men will be old and gray
    before they return home.  Building  military base that can challenge
    Troy will take a long time.

    ------------------

    This is one of the hardest level you'll face in the game according to
    many people.  Instead of writing my own guide for this one, I've included
    the one Impressions made, as it will help you out quite a bit.

    Tenedos is considered one of the, if not the, hardest episodes in Zeus. 
    The land provides no natural resources - not even food! There are very 
    limited opportunities for exporting anything. And finally, you will suffer 
    from countless invasions by powerful rivals, angry gods, mythical warriors, 
    and Trojan super-heroes.

    Success in Tenedos depends in large part on your level of preparation. If 
    you were able to conquer some or all of Miletos, Cyme, and Ethiopia in the 
    prior episode, you will have a much easier time. A massive horde of 
    Drachmas would help as well. Even so, you are probably in for a serious 
    challenge.

    As mentioned, Tenedos is completely devoid of natural resources. However, 
    you will soon receive the goods set aside in the prior episode. You can 
    also request goods from your allies. But the surest way to receive the 
    steady flow of food, fleece, olive oil, armor, and wine you will need is 
    to set up trade routes with your allies who can provide these goods. The 
    lack of any exports provides another problem. How can you make any money 
    if there is nothing to export?

    This is where the preparation part comes in. Cyme and Miletos sell bronze, 
    which can be converted to armor and then exported for a hefty profit. 
    Miletos buys wine and Ethiopia buys wine and olive oil. These can be 
    manufactured with grapes and olives bought from Aulis or your allies. 
    Without the help of at least one of these cities, there are no immediate 
    opportunities for export in Tenedos, making it hard to raise the money 
    needed to buy all the goods your people will demand. Also, building 
    Hephaestus' Forge early in the episode will provide you with a source of 
    bronze, not to mention a man of bronze (Talos) to defend your city.

    Start by building a housing block on the lower plateau near the immigrant 
    entrance on the southern edge of the playing area. Troy will be furious 
    that you are building this colony in its vicinity, and won't hesitate to 
    launch large invasions to try to stop you. These invasions will originate 
    on the highland plateau along the right-hand edge of the playing area, so 
    avoid building your city over there.

    When your houses start to fill with people, set up storage facilities to 
    take in the goods sent from Aulis. Then build trade facilities along the 
    coast. Import the goods you need for your people, as well as raw materials 
    for manufactured goods that you are able to export. Start taxing your 
    people right away. Money is the key to this episode, and you don't want to
    run out before you have set up your exports. Evolve your houses as high as 
    possible. This provides several advantages: it increases tax revenues, 
    provides you with more rabble units for defense, and ensures a more 
    efficient use of space and resources.

    Next, set up an elite housing block to get your elite military up and 
    running. This is especially important if you need to conquer any of the 
    three cities that help you develop trade. Regardless, elite housing will 
    be important for defense, and also for increasing your tax income. The 
    availability of horse ranches means you can evolve your elite houses to 
    their maximum level (estate), creating powerful cavalry units and a 
    wealthy tax base.

    Another potential source of military power and needed materials is a fleet 
    of triremes. Triremes can accompany your troops on overseas invasions, and 
    can be used in raids to cart away enormous quantities of goods. Try 
    raiding Cyme and Miletos for goods you need or can export. When you raid, 
    make sure to specify which goods you want your troops to loot.

    Any gifts of wood or marble can be exported to raise money, but it's wiser 
    to use them to build the Arbor of Athena. With the Arbor, you get much 
    needed help defending the city, and lots of help with olives and olive 
    oil production. You could also get started on the Forge of Hephaestus.

    Don't hope for a quick victory. You will have to wait six or seven years 
    for Hector's invasion and the quest to become available. During this time, 
    survival depends on following a sound strategy. You may wish to build 
    defensive fortifications between your city and the invasion points to the 
    east. Build walls and towers along the ravine. Make sure there are roads 
    connecting your towers to the palace. You can place rabble units behind 
    the walls to pummel your attackers while they try to break through. Rabble
    must be set to "attack" mode to fire through walls.

    When your city is well defended and you are generating enough money to 
    survive, begin preparing for the arrival of the Achilles. The Hero's Hall 
    for Achilles requires the following to attract the moody warrior to your
    city:

    - 32 suits of armor
    - 3 hoplite companies or better
    - A sanctuary to Hephaestus
    - No unrest in the city
    - 16 amphorae of wine

    If you can meet these requirements before the quest is announced, you will 
    be able to summon Achilles in no time. This is important, because the 
    vicious Trojan hero Hector will shortly invade your city and he will do 
    major damage until Achilles appears.

    With Hector slain, the military power of Lyrnessus will decline, and you 
    will be able to conquer them. By this point, you should be ready to move 
    onto the final episode.

            Rule Ascania

    It's just crazy enough to work.  Odysseus' plan to break through the
    walls of Troy is ridiculous, but thus far, more traditional methods
    have failed.  Odysseus' plan is to build a huge wooden animal and fill
    it with the most skilled soldiers in the Greek army.  The Trojans will
    drag the wooden animal into the city themselves, and under the cover
    of night, the soldiers will attack the city within.  Then, you can
    send more soldiers to attack Troy.  This two-pronged attack is sure
    to succeed.  Now the only thing left is to decide which animal to build.
    A badger?  No, too small.  A rabbit?  No, it's been done.  A puppy?
    No, too cute.  What about a horse?

    ------------------

    Wow, the final episode of the final adventure!

    There really isn't much to this one.  This is all military for the most
    part.  Just conquer any cities that you don't have yet, and when you
    receive word that the Trojan Horse idea worked, send a full-out assault on
    the Troy.  Congratulations!

  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                               The Capital City
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

      Goals:  Population of 1000
              500 People in Homestead or better

      Welcome to Atlantis!  The oddly shaped landmass consists of a central
      island, two outer rings and two outer pieces of land with plenty of
      waterways and access to the open sea.

      The main challenge in The Birth of Atlantis adventure is being able
      to effectively manage how you set up your housing and industry so as
      not to paint yourself into a corner with the limited amount of land
      available.  It may look like a huge area - when it's empty.  But start
      to fill it with houses, industry buildings, Sanctuaries and science
      buildings and then the space provided begins to look mighty small.

      Atlantis has access to just about every resource imaginable.  All in
      all you should have more than enough jobs for your people and goods
      to trade with the cities you will discover.

      You will probably want to start your budding city by laying down your
      first housing block on the southern portion of the outermost landmass,
      just below the large swath of fertile ground.  This will allow you to
      have immediate access to food and to the open sea when trade opens
      up.  Try not to build too much on the innermost 'donut' of land.
      You'll probably want to use that land for a large Hippodrome that
      you will build later.

      You start with a decent amount of cash, but you'll probably want
      to keep an eye on spending; you start off with no trading partners
      or tax collectors so there is no way to generate extra cash if you
      run out.  Don't worry - a trade partner will blossom soon enough.
      Right now just concentrate on getting your city up and running.

      Once your initial housing has been inhabited and supplied with
      water, you should have a few hundred citizens - great job!

      Near the end of the first year, the city of Gades will be
      discovered, and they will want to trade with you.  Left-Click on
      the World View to see where Gades is and then Left Click on the
      City itself to see which goods they are selling and which they
      are buying.  Gades buys meat and orichalc.

      Gades requires a Pier to buy and deliver goods, and not far from
      the orichalc deposits you should be able to find a suitable place
      to build one.  Once you have placed it, begin selling orichalc.
      This should start bringing in a tidy profit for your budding
      metropolis!

      In order to fulfill the housing requirement you need housing that
      receives food, water and fleece, and has at least one type of
      scientist passing by.  Each Homestead can hold 32 occupants, and
      a Tenement can hold 40.  Simple math will tell you at least 15
      houses at Homestead or Tenement levels of development should net
      you your required Housing goal and 30 houses at the Tenement
      level will easily garner the second goal of 1000 people.

                        All Creatures Great and Greater
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

      Goals:  Population of 1500
              1000 people in Apartment or better
              Slay a Monster
              Modest Pyramid

      Continue to build your city, keeping in mind your food stores,
      employment levels and industry.  You will be allowed to tax your
      people from now on, so building a Palace and a Tax Office or two
      is a wise decision.  Be careful where you place your Palace,
      however, for it will have to be surrounded by walls in order
      to summon Theseus later in the episode.

      It would also be wise to build a grove of olive trees and
      grapevines to facilitate more trade with neighbors, as well
      as to satisfy your own people's needs.  You may also wish to
      start constructing Aphrodite's Sanctuary as she might be
      useful in keeping your citizens contented and happy.  Keep
      an eye out for jealous gods, whose feelings may have been
      hurt because they did not get the continent of Atlantis for
      their own and so plan to take out their frustrations on you!

      Once you get your olive oil industry going, it shouldn't be
      long before distribution elevates your housing to the
      Apartment level and you will achieve your Population goal.

      If you haven't set up a marble industry, then the Minotaur
      shouldn't give you any trouble when he appears near the
      quarries.  Just make sure to get Theseus's requirements
      filled so that he can kill the beast.  The requirements to
      summon Theseus are:

            - Build the Hall near the Palace
            - Good Appeal around the Hall
            - Hall is protected by Walls
            - 32 slabs of Marble
            - 16 Amphore of Wine

      Once you have these met, summon the hero.  Once he kills the
      Minotaur, your goal is achieved!

      Next collect the materials you need and the pyramid should take
      no time at all to complete.  If you build close to the Storehouses
      that holds the materials it needs, the faster it will get
      built... but then you already knew that, right? Right!


    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                                Big Game Hunting
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

      Goals:  Population of 2000
              1500 People in Townhouse or better
              Sanctuary to Artemis
              Fulfill a forthcoming quest

      By now you should have a decent industry and distribution network
      that is keeping your city vibrant and productive.  Adding another
      housing block will most likely be necessary to accomplish your
      population and housing goals.  Remember to keep each block supplied
      and happy.

      A good place to construct your second block of housing is North of
      your present housing block, just on the other side of the section
      where you set up your food/fleece/oil and wine block.  This block
      doesn't have to be nearly as large as the first in order to meet
      your goals.  A small block developed to the Townhouse stage should
      put you over the 2000 citizen mark.  And if you've built A
      phrodite's Sanctuary, she'll fill your houses for you.

      It is also a good idea to start thinking about placing down a
      block of Elite Housing, as the armored and trained soldiers they
      will bring will be useful in the near future.  The first, largest
      ring of land is a good spot to do this.  Make sure that the houses
      have great appeal and access to all goods and services.

      In order to ensure you have sufficient resources to armor and
      train your soldiers, you'll need to place down a few Foundries
      and Armories to provide armor and weapons for your soldiers and
      possibly a Horse Ranch to upgrade your Spearmen to Cavalry.  A
      Frigate Wharf or two isn't a bad idea either.

      Of course all of these industries require workers, so lay down
      another block of housing to the North of your second block.
      And with the trade and industry you've set up, funds should be
      no problem at all.

      Fairly early on in the episode you will receive a request from
      Artemis to round up some large animals roaming the landscape.
      To accomplish this you will need to summon Atalanta to help you.

      The requirements for Atalanta's Hall are as follows:

            - A Sanctuary to Artemis
            - A Working Museum
            - 32 sides of meat
            - 32 planks of wood
            - 8 Companies of Soldiers

      Again when building Artemis's Sanctuary make sure it is close
      to the materials it needs.  This will cut down on construction
      time significantly!  Once you have fulfilled the requirements
      for Atalanta's Hall, summon the hero and send her off to fetch
      those over-sized animals!


    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                                 War and Ethics
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

      Goals:  Rule Cennia
              Rule Mt. Geimm
              Rule Mt. Phaesus

      This is a purely military episode, so make sure your soldiers are
      well- armored and up to the task of accomplishing these tough goals.
      The three cities you are required to rule are inhabited by the
      cruel and ugly Centaurs, who early on in the mission will begin
      sending raiding parties against you and your allies.

      To counter these attacks, it is imperative that you have your
      armies at the ready to defend your city and your allies.  Defending
      your neighbors will increase their favor with you and they will be
      more willing to assist in military strikes against the offending
      Centaur cities.

      By now your city should be booming and your Foundries and Armories
      should be producing enough armor to support the troops housed in
      your Elite Housing.

      During this Episode, the lame god Hephaestus will woo you to build
      a Sanctuary to him in order to boost your bronze and armor
      production.  This may be a wise thing to do considering you may
      have a surplus of workers needing jobs to fill and the god's help
      may come in handy later down the road.

      When you are ready, call upon one or two of your neighbors to
      assist in attacking either Mt. Geimm or Mt. Phaesus as they are
      the weakest of your opponents.

      You should have Artemis's Sanctuary, and the soldiers she provides
      will allow you to take the three rival cities fairly easily, though
      it would be wise to send at least one or two companies of Spearmen
      and two to three companies of Charioteers and a Frigate or two
      along with the Amazons that the goddess provides.

      At least six Elite Houses should garner you the necessary troops
      (either Spearmen or Charioteers) with which to defend yourself or
      attack the Centaur cities.  Hopefully you planned well ahead and
      had the Elite housing set up in the previous episode and so will
      not have to spend too much time in this episode.

      Once you have buttered up your allies to the point where they
      agree to grant you military aid, start taking the rivals down
      one by one.  Before you know it, all of the Centaur cities will
      be your vassals!


    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                               Symphonia Ithikos
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

      Goals:  Population of 3000
              100 People in Mansion or better
              Fulfill a forthcoming quest
              Fulfill a forthcoming quest

      Horrors! Because you attacked and destroyed the Centaurs, the gods
      have decided that in punishment for your crime you must never
      again attack another race of beings that inhabit the surrounding
      territories.  You may defend yourself in times of war, but must
      never initiate an attack on another city.

      To honor this pact, Atlas has vowed to inscribe the words of the
      sacred text onto a tablet.  It will be up to you to find a suitable
      material for this magnificent work.

      Meeting the Housing and Population requirements for this episode
      should be a snap if you followed the guidelines for building the
      housing blocks and elite homes from the previous episodes.  By
      now you should have well over 3000 citizens and the six (or
      more!) elite homes you placed earlier should yield you at least
      120 additional citizens living in luxury.

      Soon, Poseidon, Lord of the Sea, will send you on the Quest for
      the Cornerstone.  In order to find the cornerstone, which will
      be the first building block in the construction of the sea god's
      great Citadel, you must summon Atalanta once more.

      Place down the hero's hall and then busy yourself fulfilling the
      necessary requirements to attract the hero to your city.  The
      requirements for Atalanta's Hall are as follows:

            - A Sanctuary to Artemis
            - A Working Museum
            - 32 sides of meat
            - 32 planks of wood
            - 8 Companies of Soldiers

      Once Atalanta arrives, dispatch her to retrieve the Cornerstone.

      Next comes a Quest from Apollo, The Tablet of the Pact.  You must
      summon Achilles to your city so that the hero can be persuaded to
      mine the orichalc found on the mysterious Crimson Isle in order
      to inscribe upon it the sacred text of the Symphonia Ithikos.  The
      requirements for Achilles' Hall are as follows:

            - 32 suits of armor
            - 3 Spearmen Companies or better
            - A Sanctuary to Hephaestus
            - No Unrest in the City
            - 16 amphorae of wine

      Don't forget, that in addition to your own armor production, you
      can request armor from your ally, Ampher.  Just placate them with
      gifts and they may even send you some without a request from you!

      Once you have the necessary goods, send for Achilles and dispatch
      him to Crimson Isle.  With that done you've proven once again that
      no goal is too tough for you!

      Now you have to choice of one of two Colonies to build and develop,
      either Leucippium or Evenestus.  There is no advantage to choosing
      one over the other, and you will get to build the other colony
      later.  Leucippium will be discussed first.


    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                     The Hungry Sphinx (Leucippium Colony)
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

      Goals:  Slay a Monster
              32 Ingots of Orichalc for Parent City
              32 Bars of Bronze for Parent City

      What a rocky and hilly place Leucippium is!  Why, there's hardly
      any place to build a decent sized city block!  That's the main
      challenge you face in this region, how to best utilize your limited
      space.  But after working with the concentric rings of Atlantis,
      this should be a snap!

      Right off the bat you should be able to see the huge deposits of
      both copper and orichalc.  Try building your first block of
      housing close to the entry point near that big swath of fertile
      land just below where the copper ore is located.

      Soon after you have begun to build your city, that nasty Sphinx
      arrives!  She guards the orichalc ore and getting that material
      is going to be tough.  You'll need to summon Atalanta again to
      clear a path.  Think you have the requirements for her Hall
      memorized yet? Here they are again:

            - A Sanctuary to Artemis
            - A Working Museum
            - 32 sides of meat
            - 32 planks of wood
            - 8 Companies of Soldiers

      There are two keys to winning this scenario.  One is relying on
      your trade partners to grant you gifts, as your resources here
      won't allow you to get the necessary Sanctuary materials.  Pacify
      your neighbors with gifts and fulfill their requests and you should
      soon have all the materials you need.  The other is to remember
      not to overbuild.  You have no population or housing requirements,
      just goods and a pesky monster to slay.

      Concentrate first on getting Artemis' Sanctuary up and running
      (she'll help with food shortages) and then get Atalanta to kill
      the Sphinx.  Once those small problems are out of the way then
      you can throw all your efforts into mining and stockpiling the
      necessary goods to win.  Make sure to delete the Artisans Guilds
      once Artemis' Temple is complete - you can always use extra ore
      miners!

      Close to the end of the first year, the city of Mestonia will
      blossom, and this can be another source of materials you sorely
      need.

      Concentrate on your goals, and you should win this episode with
      pride!


    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                            The Citadel of Poseidon
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

      Goals:  Sanctuary to Poseidon

      How simple can this be? Build a Sanctuary to Poseidon? No problem!
      But what a Sanctuary it is!  It's huge!  Never fear, by now you have
      enough trading partners and enough industry of your own to complete
      this project in a matter of a few years.  The obvious placement for
      it is the large central island, provided you haven't already begun
      building there.  Be mindful of requests and demands of your
      neighbors and keep to the letter of the Symphonia Ithikos and
      you should see the magnificent structure up and running in all
      its glory!

      After you finish the Citadel of Poseidon, it's off to found another
      colony.


    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                      People of the Sea (Evenestus Colony)
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

      Goals:  9 Trading Partners
              60 People in Estate or better

      Again the key here is not to overbuild.  Get the first housing block
      up and running, fed and watered and then concentrate on building a
      defensive force.  It's possible that the Oceanids may decide they
      want to flex their territorial muscles and push you off this piece
      of land.  Stick fast though, and you'll win.

      Get your first block of housing up quickly near the entry point in
      the south east, concentrate on feeding your people and getting a
      small army of archers to defend yourself against early incursions.
      Don't forget to ask for defensive troops from your allies or parent
      city if you need them!  And of course you can always bribe the
      invaders.

      Building walls and towers to defend the shoreline might also be
      a good way to deter those pesky Oceanids and give you the edge
      to beat them should your forces not be strong enough or your
      allies too slow in sending military help.

      Begin trading with your current allies, and then construct an
      elite housing block in order to garner you the population goal
      of 60 people in an Estate.  You merely need to wait out the
      invasions of the temperamental Oceanids; eventually they'll see
      the light of reason and ally with your glorious civilization.

      Goals:  Population of 5000
              Pyramid of the Pantheon
              Hippodrome 40 Stades Long
              Fulfill a forthcoming quest

      By far the toughest goal to achieve is the construction of the
      Hippodrome.  Now you can see the wisdom of leaving the innermost
      ring surrounding the central island free of other buildings.
      This is where you will build your Hippodrome.  The Hippodrome's
      ends must be connected for it to function.  You will note the
      inner ring of land closest to the large center island is
      perfect for the placement of your Hippodrome.  Be patient when
      placing the structure and make sure that it has access to a
      Horse Ranch so that the races will soon be running.  Hey, look
      at it this way: it's another source of income and a city
      could always use a few more Drachmas!

      Also in this episode you will be called upon to once again
      summon the brave Atalanta to perform a Quest for Hades, King
      of the Underworld.  He wants you to send the heroine to steal
      some Ambrosia of the gods from Tomb of Cronos!  But you must
      be careful!  If the gods catch wind of this plot, there could
      be dire consequences...

      Remember the requirements for Atalanta's Hall? Sure you do!

            - A Sanctuary to Artemis
            - A Working Museum
            - 32 sides of Meat
            - 32 planks of Wood
            - 8 Companies of Soldiers

      By now your population should be well above 5000 and if it
      isn't... well then you know the cure for that: build another
      housing block!  Just make sure they are getting all the goods
      and services they need.

      With the world obeying the Symphonia Ithikos, there really isn't
      that much need of a military in this episode.  Send any Frigate
      Wharf workers home and put them to work at Artisans' Guilds,
      Black Marble Workshops and Masonry Shops.  This will make the
      construction of the Pyramid go extremely quickly.

      With your Population goal taken care of, the horses running at
      the Hippodrome, Atalanta stealing the Ambrosia, and the Pyramid
      of the Pantheon complete, you'll have achieved all of your goals
      and completed the episode... and the Birth of Atlantis Adventure
      entirely! Well done!

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                                  Westward Ho!
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

      Goals:  1200 people in Townhouse or better
              48 slabs of marble for colony
              20 jugs of olive oil for colony

      Although this land offers several large expanses on which to build
      your neighborhoods, your immediate needs are best served by building
      residences in the southeast quadrant.

      You'll soon need fleece imports to keep your city growing.  Build
      a straight main road from your neighborhood through the southernmost
      meadows, the small mountain pass (between the marble quarries), and
      towards the sea.  This will provide an excellent avenue for much
      needed food and imports of fleece, wood, and bronze, and a path
      to sell marble to Diapraea and orichalc to Atlantis, to pay for
      these imports.

      The northernmost meadow should be reserved for wheat farms, which
      will support only a medium-sized population.  The southern patch
      of meadowland is excellent for olive trees, and nearby Growers'
      Lodges and presses can be built on a spur off your main road.
      With a steady flow of olive oil, you should be able to evolve
      your city's housing quickly and amass enough oil for your colony
      requirement.

      Marble is not needed by your neighborhood and is best quarried by
      Masonry Shops at the southwestern end of this main road.  This
      keeps them close to Piers for quick export.  A few Storehouses
      here will hold your marble for your colony requirement.

      If you're feeling aggressive, hold off on setting aside all your
      goals until you've completed the Pillar of Atlas.  Although not
      a requirement in this episode, Atlas is always helpful to have
      around for completing large construction projects in later
      episodes.  Import or, better yet, request wood and sculpture from
      your allies.  Extra wood and sculptures can be sold for a nice
      profit.  Make sure to build your orichalc Refineries near the
      Pillar of Atlas so that they receive Atlas' blessings!

      It may be best to avoid establishing a huge population at this
      stage, as your limited food resources won't support it, and
      importing food, although inexpensive, is unnecessary at this
      point.

      Once you complete this episode, you will get to build your choice
      of four colonies.  In all in this adventure, you will found a
      total of three colonies, so one will remain a mystery to you; at
      least until you replay the adventure again.

      Your choices are Copan, Biminis, Cuello and Ianira.  It's wisest
      to choose Copan or Biminis first.  Copan, with its abundant
      supplies of silver ore, offers a great opportunity to build up
      your coffers.  If you choose Biminis, trade will open up with
      the Oceanids, from whom you can buy lots and lots of urchins
      if you need more food.  Cuello also offers you a great opportunity
      to earn some money, but there are troublemakers in the area that
      you may need to bribe.  Ianira is blessed with many raw materials,
      but is lacking some of the basic supplies that people need to
      live.  It's easiest to play Copan or Biminis first. Cuello and
      Ianira will be discussed later.


    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                     In the Name of Science (Copan Colony)
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

      Goals:  1000 people in Townhouse or better
              Observatory Kosmika

      Seemingly ripe with lush forests, edible wildlife, and an abundance
      of silver and bronze, Copan is a perfect tropical paradise.  Its
      water inlet is excellent to expand your transatlantic
      import/export business.

      Only a few unwelcome guests and natural instability will need to
      be tolerated for you to do your job here.  But hey, it's better
      than giant mosquitoes and malaria!

      The Calydonian Boar will pay a visit to his cousins living in the
      southeast corner of the play area almost immediately.  Although
      you don't need to evict this unpleasant neighbor to complete the
      episode, the silver he guards is quite tempting.  Theseus'
      modest summoning requirements are well worth the investment.

      Your residential quarter should be safe in most areas.  Building
      it close to your water inlet makes the most sense, as once again,
      the growth of your city will depend on importing goods: this time,
      oil and fleece.  Obviously, building your neighborhood far from
      the Boar's romping grounds is wise.  As you have no rival city
      enemies, there's little reason to build elite housing.

      Your city will live off of the meat of the land: Hunting Lodges
      will get you started, but Corrals will keep your people sated.

      Just as in the first episode, Diapraea is your best friend.  The
      bulk of the Observatory Kosmika will require the precious black
      marble that only they can supply.  And supply it they do: keep
      an eye on imports, as buying too much marble at once can quickly
      drain your monetary resources, and supply will increase over
      the course of this episode.

      Start building the Observatory Kosmika early.  It's a
      monumental undertaking, and the sooner you start, the sooner you
      get on to bigger and better? monuments!

      Autoch will give you the supplies you set aside in the first
      episode (oil and marble).  Autoch may also grant marble requests
      throughout the episode.  As your parent city, they're a bit more
      obliged to give you what you need.

      Your new neighbors, Palanque and Tikal may not seem like much at
      first, but Tikal's supply of bronze can quickly be crafted into a
      fine sculpture and arms export business: For some reason Azium is
      very interested in both of these commodities.  The wily Oceanids
      of Xilyuf will also buy your sculpture.  Chances are this will be
      the best source of income in this episode.

      After a couple years, the prankster Hephaestus will start his
      regular invasions from the north. Apparently he wants the Mayans
      for himself!  If you're relying on armor and sculpture trade to
      keep you going, make sure you budget for the occasional
      interruption that Hephaestus causes: he'll quickly target your
      Sculpture Studios and Armories to curse or destroy them, and
      anything in the way will just upset him more.  Once you see the
      path he takes towards these structures, keep other buildings
      off of this path, or watch them tumble as he makes his regular
      trek towards his target.

      Around the same time as Hephaestus' first visit, the heat will
      turn up a bit, literally!  Watch for lava flows in the northeast.
      Fortunately, there's little reason to build here, and if you did,
      the small flow should cause minimal damage.  Also avoid building
      close to the high cliffs due east of the inlet.

      With a bit of perseverance, by the time you've completed this
      episode, you should have fattened up your coffers.

                   Water, Water and Urchins (Biminis Colony)
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

      Goals:  Population of 2000
              Find the Spring of Youth
              Sanctuary to Aphrodite

      Biminis is a great choice if you need to expand your trading
      partners beyond what you already have.  It essentially becomes
      a trading center to establish more of a relationship with the
      Oceanids, which if you don't take this episode, will not become
      available to trade with.  These include Fivmnal and Yehm.

      Your immediate goal is to establish residences and a food
      supply.  Build a medium sized neighborhood in the southeast,
      and bridge out to the island in the center.  This is your
      closest supply of food.  Make sure to leave space for a bridge
      connecting this island to the large island to the north for
      later expansion.  Beware that on easier levels, this large
      population will be difficult to employ fully, and people don't
      like to stick around if there's no work!

      Your primary exports will be wood and wine.  Your parent city
      will give you plenty of marble for the sanctuary, all you need
      then is to import or request six sculptures.  There are a few
      good places for the sanctuary, the best of which may be near
      the meadowland on the southern island.

      You will get requests for wine, which you can produce, or if
      you're feeling lazy and/or are well established, buy and then
      give away.

      As you require more food, establish more Urchin Quays on the
      central island and on the northern island, as there are no
      urchin spots to the south.  Also, a price drop in urchins will
      be in your favor, as you can only import it from the Oceanid
      cities.

      Aphrodite's quest will require Bellerophon's assistance. His
      requirements include:

            - 15 horses
            - Excellent tax coverage
            - 10000 in the treasury
            - 24 ingots of orichalc
            - 24 amphorae of wine.

      If you're having trouble finding room for 3 Horse Ranches, two
      should fit on the southern island, the third will fit nicely
      right in the center of the first urchin island.

      Import or request wheat and orichalc as you need to fulfill the
      requirements for Bellerophon.  Remember that you need to find a
      place for your palace to collect taxes!


    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                                Help from Above
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

      Goals:  Sanctuary to Demeter
              Sanctuary to Athena
              Sanctuary to Dionysus
              48 slabs of marble for colony
              20 jugs of olive oil for colony

      If you completed the Pillar of Atlas in the first episode, you're
      ahead of the game in this episode.  If not, do that first!  Atlas
      will eagerly assist you when you're short on materials, and you
      will find his assistance most beneficial in this episode as he
      enables extra artisans to help you with your sites.

      The focus of this episode is actually to expand your city.  In
      order to do so, you need more food, more oil, more money, more
      everything!

      Sanctuary placement will have a direct impact on their respective
      effectiveness: The land around Demeter's will become fertile so
      give it some space for Wheat Farms around it, and make sure to
      plan your roads around the sanctuary to 'encourage' her to bless
      as many as possible.  Food production is critical in this time of
      expansion.  Make sure you have enough granaries to store the
      annual harvest.

      If you build your olive industry near the original southern
      meadowland on a spur as originally suggested in episode one,
      place Athena's sanctuary at the end of it.  She will quickly
      respond by regularly blessing your Olive Presses upon completion
      of the sanctuary.  You'll have more than enough olive oil for you
      city, and the rest can be exported to Palanque in exchange for
      buying wood.  Palanque may give you wood, but you'll need a lot
      more to complete all these sanctuaries.

      Dionysus' sanctuary location is not as critical, but plan ahead:
      You may not need Elite housing yet, but balance the sanctuary's
      placement between the Piers to export wine, and the location where
      you plan on setting up your elite neighborhoods.

      With exports of oil, marble, orichalc, sculpture, armor, wine, and
      possibly wheat and grapes, you can quickly establish yourself as a
      trade mogul on the Atlantean isles and beyond.  A price increase in
      marble will work in your favor.  Hey, that's what's being a
      colonial power is all about!

      Diapraea and Azium continue to try to outdo each other with their
      military build up.  Hmmm, wondering what those twins are up to?
      Well, no matter, as long as they're buying weapons and other
      goods from you!

      Meeting your 'set aside' goals should be no problem at this point
      of your city's expansion.  If you started your first neighborhoods
      in the southeast, just keep building to the north.

      It's time to establish another colony.  Cuello will be discussed
      next.


    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                     The Glory of Pyramids (Cuello Colony)
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

      Goals:  Small Monument to the Sky
              Monument to the Sky
              Grand Monument to the Sky

      This area is expansive, but the only requirements you have for
      this colony is to build 3 pyramids for the Mayans.  By planning
      ahead, you can make this episode very easy.  The story line warns
      of Ares in this land.  Ares' attacks manifest themselves in two
      forms: He will invade personally, with his armies, or he'll
      send his dragon to pester you.

      Like many of his cousins, this dragon loves shiny metal, and
      silver is all along the east bank of the river.  Fortunately,
      when he does invade, the dragon will stay towards the south.  If
      you need cash at this point of the adventure, you'll want to
      keep your mints towards the north.  Your best bet will be to
      establish them on the west bank, and build a bridge across the
      northern section of the river for your miners.  Leave the dragon
      alone, and he'll do the same.  If you want to make this episode
      longer, or more enjoyable, try summoning Jason to defeat the
      dragon.  This will considerably extend your time in Cuello, while
      you establish elite housing and Frigate Wharves to fulfill the
      requirements:

            -3 Frigates
            -2 Charioteer companies
            -64 Crates of Food
            -8 Horses
            -16 Amphorae of wine

      Although you may be tempted to build Atlas' sanctuary first to
      help your pyramid construction, instead, insure against Ares'
      personal attacks by quickly building Aphrodite's Haven.  She'll
      keep Ares at bay and let you finish your work here.  You'll get
      more than enough marble from Autoch to get started.

      Your best luck in urban planning here is simple: build your
      neighborhoods on the west bank of the river, close to the northern
      meadows.  A steady supply of native fleece and oranges, along with
      imports from nearby Piers will keep your citizens happy.  Nearly
      all goods can be imported or exported, and in the spirit of
      this colonial adventure, money is yours to be made if you
      capitalize on local resources: sell off extra black marble and
      wood.  Again, your best cash supply is from continuing to sell
      sculpture and armor made from imported bronze.

      Black marble located in the center of the play area should guide
      you to build a road southwest from your city center.  That big
      open space between these two areas along the road is perfect for
      big pyramids.

      Once your sanctuary to Aphrodite is complete, build your pyramids.
      They will require only black marble, so don't worry about
      importing regular marble, save for any other sanctuaries you
      decide to build.

      During the episode, you'll find two new neighbors, Chacaal and
      Tezcu.  Chacaal is a great trading partner if you're low on food,
      or want to unload some sculpture.  Tezcu would rather help out
      Ares with his harassment and attacks.  Your best shot at keeping
      them at bay is your colonial power (read: "cash").  Pay them off
      while you continue building your amazing pyramids, which are
      sure to impress the hostile Mayans and help you convince them
      to cease the senseless attacks.


    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                              The Grand Collection
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

      Goals:  Argent Maize Quest
              Museum Atlantika
              Yearly Profit of 6000
              48 slabs of marble for colony
              20 jugs of olive oil for colony

      Azium and Diapraea continue their military build up.  This is a
      big clue: start doing the same. T he Youngest Twins may soon
      start causing problems of their own, and you'll need something
      to do whilst constructing your new pyramid: the Museum
      Atlantika.

      Begin establishing your own military presence: start building
      up elite estates and Frigate Wharves.  Make sure your wharves
      get orichalc for that extra fiery punch.  The small islands off
      the southern coast make an excellent naval yard.

      Soon, Demeter will request you send Jason to get the Argent
      Maize. Jason requires:

            -3 Frigates
            -2 Charioteer companies
            -64 Crates of Food
            -8 Horses
            -16 Amphorae of wine

      Between Tikal and Diapraea, you will have plenty of black marble
      supply for your pyramid.  If not, Atlas will come and help you out.

      By this time you should have a strong exchange of imports and
      exports.  Balancing these properly will insure both a steady
      stream of income and happy citizens.  You should be importing
      wheat (to supplement your limited supply and to feed your
      horses), wood (for frigates, chariots, and the pyramid), bronze,
      fleece, and black marble (for the pyramid).  You should be
      exporting marble, orichalc, sculpture, olive oil, wine, and
      armor (once you've got all you need for your armies).

      Once more, you must leave the comfort of your parent city and
      found another colony.  Ianira is discussed below.


    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                        Land Stained Red (Ianira Colony)
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

      Goals:  Protect city from Echidna
              Produce 64 ingots of orichalc in one year

      All you need to do is get some orichalc and slay Echidna!
      Sounds easy enough.  Ironically, once Echidna appears, you'll
      realize she likes to hang out in the one and only entrance
      to the huge fields of orichalc.  Simply put: focus on Echidna
      first, then the orichalc goal.

      Import and export to reach Bellerophon's goals:

            - 15 Horses in the city
            - Excellent citywide tax coverage
            - Treasury of 10000 Drachmas
            - 24 ingots of orichalc
            - 24 amphorae of wine

      The northwest coast of the island is an excellent location
      to set up your trading Piers.  Build your residential zones
      nearby, and set up mining industries a little to the south
      of your neighborhoods to supply exports.  Notice that your
      four mining resources essentially make a horizontal line
      across the middle of the island, from left to right: marble,
      bronze, orichalc, and black marble.  Also notice the edge of
      the largest forest heading southeast.  Your best bet is to
      constrain your building inside these imaginary boundaries.
      There's no need to venture outside them, and the land is
      unstable beyond these areas: avoid building there, especially
      near the quarries.

      Once you've summoned Bellerophon and eliminated Echidna,
      focus on orichalc mining: Build Refineries near the orichalc
      deposits.  You will need 8 to 10 Refineries - more if you
      built further from the ore deposits.  You can also build the
      Pillar of Atlas near the Refineries to increase production.
      Remember: it's the rate at which you can refine the
      orichalc, measured from January through December, not how
      much you have stored.  Atlantis will pester you for orichalc.
      It's always best to aid allies in their needs; it will pay
      off later.


    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                             The Twin Kingdoms' War
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

      Goals:  Population of 4000
              Temple of Olympus
              Rule Diapraea
              Rule Azium

      Diapraea and Azium will immediately become rivals.  Their military
      build up over the adventure has foreshadowed this event.  Your
      military may not be up to snuff, so make sure you have a lot of
      elite housing.  Ten or eleven estates with chariots, and at least
      three frigates, but more if you can staff them, should suffice
      to begin your assault, depending on your difficulty level.

      Begin construction of the Temple of Olympus immediately.  It needs
      mostly marble, but will also need modest amounts of black marble
      and wood to be completed.  These will need to be imported.

      Your population requirement should be easy to achieve, if you
      have not done so already: the workforce you require to fully
      staff and run your industries at this point should justify at
      least 4000 citizens.

      Depending on how you've treated Atlantis, they may or may not be
      willing to aid in your attacks against the twins.  They are by
      far the best equipped to help handle the infidels!  If they're
      not willing to help, you may want to "butter them up" a bit to
      help you out.

      Azium is the more profitable trading partner.  If you need to
      maintain your export income, attack them first to reestablish
      trade.  Another thing to take into account is your fleece needs;
      you may need to raid or conquer Diapraea first, to you're your
      citizens in fleece.  Otherwise, these two cities are about
      equal in combat difficulty.  Once you've conquered these little
      troublemakers and complete your pyramid you're done with the
      episode and the adventure.  Congratulations!

                           Life in the Mediterranean
  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                           Entering the Mediterranean
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

      Goals:  Slay a monster (Scylla)
              Fulfill a Forthcoming Quest (Widen the Straits)

      Begin by building a housing community on the eastern part of the
      play area south of the Mediterranean.  This will be your main
      housing area for the rest of the adventure so make sure that it
      is large enough to add buildings to later.

      Begin to grow carrots in the meadow to the southwest of your
      housing community.  If you find you're not making food fast enough,
      build a Pier to Iwaeh and importing fish.  Placing the Pier on
      the western-most shore is fine after you clear cut the forest
      that's over there.  Place a Granary near your housing to get
      fish.  The fish will help until your carrot production is in
      full swing.

      Almost immediately upon starting the Adventure, Scylla will show
      her ugly faces in the water to the right of the straight.  She
      does not come up onto land nor can she cross the straight to
      menace your Piers on the other side.  Even though she is not
      much of a threat to you, you do need to kill her to advance to
      the next episode.

      You can now build a Hero's Hall for Odysseus, which will bring
      him to your city.  To have the famous Odysseus kill Scylla
      you'll need:

            - Excellent popularity
            - Excellent city-wide health
            - 8 elite houses
            - 32 jugs of olive oil
            - 16 amphorae of wine

      Atlas feels like this is the perfect time to give you a quest.
      You need to summon a strong hero -- only Hercules will do -- to
      widen the Mediterranean Strait.  You can now place Hercules' Hall,
      which you should put in the housing community you were building
      before Scylla showed up and Atlas gave you orders.  Hercules
      requires:

            - Hercules hall has excellent science access
            - A working Hippodrome
            - Excellent citywide Observatory access
            - 1,500 people in the city
            - 32 amphorae of wine

      Those are a lot or requirements to meet, but don't worry: it
      really is not that bad.  Focus on meeting Hercules' requirements
      first.  Atlantis will give you gifts of wheat -don't eat them!!
      Set a Storehouse to accept wheat, which can then be taken to a
      Horse Ranch.  You will need at least one ranch to supply your
      Hippodrome with horses.  You might consider placing it between
      your housing community and your carrot farms.  A small Hippodrome
      can be built on the hill top to the south of your housing blocks,
      to the east of the marble quarries.

      Around this same time, other cities will ask for fleece and for
      food.  Importing fish helps with meeting the food requirements.
      Also, Iwaeh will make your day by giving you a gift of 12 pieces
      of sculpture, so have two Storehouses ready to accept.

      Just remember that Hercules is going to widen the strait, so it
      probably wouldn't be the best idea to build anything that you
      mind losing on the land immediately around either side of the
      strait, but feel free to use the land on the other side of the
      strait by building a bridge across it.

      There is not much room to build in Lixus, and remember you do
      need 8 elite houses in this episode and maybe a sanctuary or
      two in later episodes.  Don't let sprawl take over.  Finding
      employment for the 1500 people you need for Hercules to come to
      Lixus can be challenging, but remember you can raise and lower
      wage rates to change the size of your workforce, and you can
      build a lot of Carding Sheds.  You can export fleece in this
      episode, which you will need to do if you want to make some
      money.  Atlantis and Mestonia will buy it from you.  Remember to
      give them gifts of fleece occasionally, so that you can request
      olive oil from Mestonia or wine from Atlantis, as you need it.

      Your original housing block should provide you with enough
      workers to achieve the 1500 people that Hercules requires.  At
      this point you will probably have quite a few unemployed people
      in the city.  This would be a good time to start to build a
      community for the elite houses.  Eight houses and all of the
      buildings they need to thrive can fit on the western plateau.
      If you have extra workers, build all of the support buildings
      the elite houses will need (Maintenance Office, Tax Office,
      science buildings, etc.), and wait to put the houses in until
      you have some olive oil.  Make sure that you do not place a
      Wine Vendor's Stall on the Agora.  Because there is no armor
      available in this episode, elite housing won't need wine.  That
      won't, however, prevent the wine vendor from taking some of
      the precious wine you need for both heroes.

      Don't forget a Museum; Hercules will need one in the city if he
      is to have excellent science access.  A University will send a
      curator to the Museum, and the Museum itself sends curators of
      its own into the city.  Just make sure that a curator goes by
      Hercules' hall regularly.  Your elite houses will not need
      curator access in this episode so don't worry about them for
      now.  You can always delete the Museum and build it elsewhere
      in a later episode.

      At this point you probably have everything you need to summon
      Hercules.  When he arrives don't forget to dispatch him on
      Atlas' quest.

      With Hercules on his way, you can work on getting Odysseus.  If
      you haven't started to import olive oil from Mestonia, do it
      now, or request olive oil after giving gifts of fleece.  Make
      sure you do not place an oil vendor in the Agora servicing
      your common housing: the last thing your city probably needs
      right now is more workers.  Build your elite housing (if you
      haven't already done so) and import more wine if you need it.
      Check the Overview tab to see how hygiene is in the city.  If
      is not high enough, consider building another Infirmary, and
      check to make sure that everyone is getting food from an agora.

      When you meet Odysseus' requirements, summon him.  After he
      stops in at his Hall he will battle Scylla and this adventure
      will be over.


    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                               Exploring the Sea
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

      Goals:  8 trading partners
              Yearly profit of 7500
              64 Skeins of fleece for colony
              A Sanctuary to any god

      At the start this episode, there are three new cities to trade
      with: Sidon, Carthage, and Tyre.  Sidon will buy marble and sell
      armor, Tyre sells wood that you will need for sanctuary
      construction, and Carthage will sell bronze.  A little while into
      the episode, Memphis will be discovered.  They will sell you
      wheat and eventually buy fleece.  These four important new cities
      will be enough to give Lixus eight trading partners.

      A permanent flood will happen, widening the strait.  You were
      warned not to build there!  You can still build a bridge across
      the strait to reach any building you had built to the north of
      the strait.  You can now place Piers all along the northern or
      southern shores to accommodate all of your new trading partners.

      Depending on how many Carding Sheds you had working in the
      first episode, you might be able to set aside the 64 skeins of
      fleece right away.  Consider building another Carding Shed or
      two if you can't meet this goal.  High fleece production is great
      because you will be able to sell even more fleece in this episode.

      If you find your city needs workers, consider placing an oil
      vendor into the Agora serving your common housing and letting
      that housing upgrade.

      You have two choices for meeting the sanctuary goal.  You can
      build a sanctuary to Atlas or one to Poseidon.  Atlas' sanctuary
      is smaller than Poseidon's so that might factor into your
      choice.  Poseidon's Sanctuary will fit in the land to the
      Southwest of your elite housing plateau, as will Atlas'.
      Poseidon's Sanctuary will also require 16 loads of Orichalc
      which you can request from Atlantis or import from them.

      Improving your elite housing is not necessary but doing so does
      have its benefits.  You can either import armor from Sidon or you
      can import bronze from Carthage and make your own.  Making armor
      will employ some of your citizens, so keep that in mind if you
      have high unemployment.  Making your own armor is also cheaper
      than importing the finished good.  Carthage will eventually stop
      trading with you (you did nothing wrong), but by that point you
      should have enough armor to supply your elite houses.

      If you want to improve your elite housing further, build some
      Chariot Factories and place a Chariot Vendor in the Agora. Once
      the houses have evolved you will start raking in the drachmas
      through tax collection, helping you meet the yearly profit goal.
      Make sure the tax collector can reach all of your elite houses.
      Also, remember that to improve the elite houses, they will need
      access to a curator.  Feel free to delete the Museum you placed
      in episode one and move it to somewhere more beneficial in this
      episode.

      With Carthage not trading, Lixus is back to seven trading
      partners, but don't worry.  Soon Thebes will be discovered,
      eventually bringing your trading partners back up to eight.
      Thebes also buys marble, which will help you to meet your
      profit goal.  The rival city of Argos will also be discovered
      during this episode.  Carthage eventually decides that they can
      trade again but at this point their bronze isn't necessary.

      You will get at least one request for wine during this episode
      so try to keep a little extra on hand.

      Most likely you will meet either yearly profit goal or the
      Sanctuary goal last.  When those goals are met you will be ready
      to advance on to the first colony episode.  You will be given a
      choice between Saqqara and Syracuse.  Saqqara has plentiful
      amounts of wheat, which it will later pay in tribute, while
      Syracuse has no sources of food at all.  It's easier to play
      Saqqara first.


    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                        Showing the Way (Saqqara colony)
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

      Goals:  Modest Pyramid
              Great Pyramid
              Pyramid of the Pantheon
              Produce 64 Sheaves of wheat in one year
              64 slabs of marble for parent city

      This episode is set in the colony of Saqqara in Egypt.  The only
      husbandry buildings available are Wheat Farms, so if you want
      your common housing to evolve you will have to import all other
      goods.

      As with most colonies, build a storage yard early on to
      accommodate the goods you sent from the parent city.  Place your
      housing between the marble quarry and the coastline.  This way
      your citizens will be close to the marble, the water, and the
      meadow.  To build pyramids you are going to have to import a
      lot of items, so keep the coastline clear for Piers.

      Almost immediately, the Sphinx enters your land, but she is
      far away from the coastline, the marble and the meadow.  The
      Sphinx will not come down and menace your population unless
      you build right next to where she is, so you probably would
      be best off avoiding her oasis.  You do not need to kill the
      Sphinx, but if you feel you need a little more breathing room,
      summon Atalanta to take care of her.  Atalanta requires:

            - Sanctuary to Artemis
            - A working museum
            - 32 sides of meat
           - 32 planks of wood
            - 8 companies of soldiers

      These are serious requirements to meet in your little colony
      but it is possible to import all of the materials you need,
      and soon you will be quarrying enough marble to easily have
      enough for a sanctuary.

      Besides Artemis' Menagerie you can build the Pillar of Atlas.
      If you build a Sanctuary to Atlas he will help your miners
      quarry marble faster.  He will also help in the construction of
      pyramids.  For this reason, Atlas' Sanctuary may be the better
      choice.

      Place some Wheat Farms in the meadow by your housing and wait
      for people to move in.  Once your citizens have food and water
      and Saqqara has some unemployment, begin to hew marble and grow
      the extra food you need.

      Trading is very important.  Thebes and Sidon will both buy
      marble. The only industry Saqqara has is hewing marble, making
      sculpture and forging armor.  Since no one buys sculpture or
      armor, selling marble becomes very important to Saqqara's
      economic health.  Tyre will sell your colony wood, which you
      will need to construct pyramids.  Carthage will sell meat,
      vital if you want Atalanta to come, and bronze if you want to
      make your own sculpture.  Gades will sell fleece, which you will
      need to upgrade your housing. Atlantis sells orichalc, which is
      necessary to build pyramids, and Mestonia will trade black
      marble with you, which you also need for certain pyramids.  If
      you don't want to make your own sculpture you can buy it from
      Iwaeh.

      When your city is up and running, you're pretty much on
      autopilot.  Build a few artisans guilds and build the pyramids
      in whatever order you choose.  Give gifts of marble or fleece to
      make other cities think more highly of you.  A high popularity
      level is a must if you want other cities to grant your requests
      for building materials.  Other cities will want to give you
      gifts also.  Be ready to accept gifts of fleece, black marble,
      and orichalc.  Your parent city will probably hit you up for
      some food.  Helping them probably won't make a dent in your
      food supply because of all the wheat you have to produce to
      meet the episode goal.

      Be wary of building on certain stretches of coastline; the
      yearly flooding of the Nile river keeps the land fertile,
      but will also destroy farms built too close to the coastline.
      These most often occur near the bottom of the river on the
      left bank and around the middle of the right bank.

                               Phoenician Strife
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

      Goals:  Support 2 frigates
              Minor shrine to Ares
              Sanctuary to Ares
              Rule Carthage
              64 Skeins of Fleece for Colony

      Welcome back to Lixus! Sidon and Tyre become your vassals in this
      episode and Carthage turns on you.  If you built up your elite
      housing in the second episode, you should have no problem
      conquering Carthage as soon as they turn.  If you did not build up
      your housing, take some time now and do so.

      Building a frigate takes 100 employees to work at the wharves,
      and a suitable shore location.  Try the northern-most shores.  You
      will also probably need to build another small housing community.
      One of the plateaus is a good place to build this small
      community.  If you haven't already conquered Carthage, do it
      after you construct the two frigates.

      Building the shrine and the Sanctuary to Ares should not present
      a great problem.  You can produce marble in Lixus and you should
      still have most of the sculpture that Iwaeh gave you in the
      first episode.  With the money you are making from exporting
      fleece and marble and from collecting taxes, importing wood and
      black marble for the shrine should not make much of a dent in
      the city's funds, especially if Atlas is around to help out.

      During this episode some of your trading partners may decide to
      stop trading for a while.  At this point in the adventure these
      disruptions in trade should not matter much to the city.  Remember
      even if trade is shut down, you can still request a good from a
      city.

      Feel free to stay in Lixus and make some money through trade and
      tax.  Set aside the fleece for your new colony when you are ready
      to proceed.


    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                      Near the Hellenes (Syracuse Colony)
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

      Goals:  Support 2 Frigates
              150 in mansion or better
              64 bars of bronze for parent city

      There is no food production in the colony of Syracuse, but Saqqara
      does pay 10 sheaves of wheat per year in tribute (presuming you've
      already played Saqqara) and much food may be imported.

      Build your housing wherever you feel comfortable, just do not build
      near the bronze deposits.  Cerberus decides to leave the Underworld
      to come and bother your colony. You can summon Hercules by building
      his Hall and meeting his requirements, and he'll then kill Cerberus,
      but you do not need to do this to advance to the next episode.
      There is bronze elsewhere in the area so you can meet your
      production goal without killing Cerberus.

      Build Piers to trade for the goods the colony needs.  Don't forget
      that you can request goods from other cities.  Selling sculpture,
      bronze, and olive oil will really increase your colony's coffers.
      Save enough coastline to build two frigate wharves when you are
      ready.

      Build a housing community for elite houses.  Make sure you are
      producing enough olive oil to support them.  If you evolve the
      houses all the way to Estate, you will need 8 elite houses to
      meet your housing goal.

      At some point, Mt. Aulip will be discovered and they will try to
      invade.  Depending on where you are militarily and economically,
      you can either bribe them or fight them.  Don't forget that you
      can also requisition your parent city for defensive aid.  When
      you are ready, set aside the 64 bars of bronze and move on to
      the next episode.


    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                                     Plague
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

      Goals:  Population of 4000
              Yearly profit of 7500
              Great Pyramid

      Selling marble and fleece should help you to make the yearly
      profit goal, although this becomes more difficult as cities
      begin to feel the effects of the plague.  If you seem to have
      trouble meeting the profit goal, try increasing your tax rate.
      Finally, you can sell the excess sculpture that Iwaeh gave you
      in episode 1; Knossos buys sculpture and the Great Pyramid does
      not need any. Remember that a city can only have 10 active
      Piers at one time, so delete any Piers you may have had to any
      city that has withered away (many cities are going to wither).

      Finding space for the Great Pyramid and extra housing, if you
      need it, might be more of a challenge, but you should have
      enough space scattered around the city.  If you don't see space
      at first, try clearing some trees.

      Mt. Aulip will menace your colony too; make sure you have troops
      to dispatch if you want to protect Syracuse.

      Once you meet these three goals, it will be time to say good-bye
      to Lixus?

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                                 Reconstruction
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

      Goals:  800 People in Townhouse or better
              40 People in Residence or better
              Support 3 Frigates

      Reconstruction is the start of what will soon be a very large city
      that you build in your effort to restore peace and prosperity to
      the kingdom of Atlantis.  The key to this adventure is making sure
      you have a steady flow of income from either trade or taxation.

      You may use up all your initial money when starting, but don't
      worry.  Your allies and vassals will give gifts of money when you
      are in debt.  Try to establish your palace and tax office as early
      as possible so that at least your worker wages are covered by
      your taxes.

      Your main source of food at the start should be from Urchin Quays.
      Set some up north of the bay and build a granary to store urchins.
      They are better than oranges for now because they give a steady
      flow of food versus a once a year crop.

      Set up trading Piers to Tyre and Carthage.  Tyre allows you to
      import grapes, which you can turn into wine for export at
      Carthage (2 or 3 Wineries should be enough for the job).  Tyre
      also exports bronze, which you can use to make armor for your
      frigates and elite housing.  You will want to keep your import
      level low for now, as bronze is fairly expensive.

      Carthage sells fleece, which you cannot make, and it will be your
      only source for this episode.  Finally, build a trading Pier to
      Memphis to import olive oil.  It is important to watch your import
      levels, as money will be short.  The best approach is to import a
      small, steady supply of necessary resources, such as two fleece and
      two olive oil at a time.  This should support your population while
      minimizing the cost.

      Your city should be slowly increasing its labor pool, so begin
      placing your science buildings to support higher levels of common
      housing.  With enough science, fleece, food and olive oil, your
      city will reach its Townhouse requirement in no time.  If you have
      lots of unemployment, now would be a good time to build a couple
      of timber mills and at least one armory to start supplying the
      materials needed for frigates.

      You can also start using excess labor to mine black marble in the
      quarry to the west in the southern continent, but don't forget to
      build a bridge.  Build a trading post to Gades to export black
      marble for some extra funds.  Throughout this episode Syracuse
      pays tribute in marble and Knossos in meat.

      Now begin planning your elite housing strip.  This will satisfy
      your Residence housing requirement once people move in and you
      have enough science in the area.

      Once your common and elite housing are set, you should have
      enough unemployment to start the final phase of building
      frigates.  If you have 300+ unemployment, then you can build 3
      frigates at the same time.  Otherwise, build a Frigate Wharf,
      and once it's complete send the workers home by right-clicking
      on the frigate and sending the crew home.  Build the next one,
      and repeat this process.  The frigates do not have to be staffed
      in order to fulfill the Episode goals; you just need to build
      them.

      You should now be ready to move on to episode 2.


    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                 The Greater Mediterranean Co-Prosperity Sphere
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

      Goals:  Rule Carthage
              2000 people in Townhouse or better
              120 people in Mansion or better
              Pyramid

      Episode two is your first taste of battle in this adventure, and
      your first foray into pyramid construction.  You will need to
      build up your elite housing so you have enough spearmen or
      charioteers to conquer the threatening Carthaginians.

      Your treasury should still have money in it, but you'll want to
      make more.  There are a few ways to do this.  Taxing the elite
      housing will allow you to bring in more profit than what you
      are spending in workers' wages. Start selling wine to Gades
      (Carthage will also buy wine after you conquer them).  Saqqara
      will start buying armor about two years into the episode, but
      make sure you have enough for your elite housing to evolve
      into Mansions.

      Between selling armor to Saqqara and wine to Gades and/or
      Carthage, you should finally be turning a sizeable profit.  As
      always, black marble is another good export for Gades.  All
      this should help fund your construction and the import of
      needed goods, while keeping you debt free.  In this episode
      Saqqara's tribute is marble and Memphis' tribute is wheat.

      Carthage is your only source of fleece until Lixus begins to
      sell it, about 9 months into the episode.  Without fleece your
      housing will devolve - workers will be needed - industry grinds
      to halt - you know the drill, it's not a pretty picture.  You
      may need to keep a closer eye on your fleece usage during this
      brief shortage.

      Invading Carthage may take a couple of tries, but keep at it,
      and be sure to send all your troops, frigates, and any ally
      that's willing to help (Knossos and Syracuse are loyal colonies
      with decent military strength).  If you want some more help
      from your navy, import a few loads of orichalc from Atlantis
      and they will be delivered to your Frigates. Frigates that can
      launch Atlantean Fire have greater attack strength than normal
      Frigates.

      The armor and wine will also help evolve the elite housing
      into Manors, which will allow more people to live there and
      satisfy your elite housing goal.

      Place as many orange trees as your money will allow and build
      some Orange Growers' Lodges between your first and second
      housing blocks.  These oranges will provide the main source of
      food for the second housing block and supplement the urchins
      for the first housing block.

      Now turn your attention to building the pyramid.  The black
      marble and wood should be no problem as they're produced at
      your existing industries.  The marble can be imported from
      Saqqara and Syracuse or use the tribute you received earlier
      from them.  The orichalc can be imported from Atlantis.


    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                            Night Falls on Atlantis
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

      Goals:  Rule Argos
              Fulfill a forthcoming quest
              3000 people in Townhouse or better
              200 people in Mansion or better
              Sanctuary to Atlas

      First of all, build another elite housing block very close to your
      first one.  This will more than satisfy your elite housing
      requirement as well as give you more troops and more tax money.
      Your common housing requirement should already be met, but even
      if it is, you'll want to build more common housing to provide
      enough workers for your growing economy and industries.

      Now that you've successfully opened markets in Egypt, it's time
      to start importing cheaper raw goods, instead of the more costly
      finished product.  Lower your olive oil imports (although you may
      want to maintain a small import level as a safety precaution),
      and begin importing olives.  Build two or three olive presses to
      supply your city, and when you feel comfortable you can
      increase your olive imports and begin exporting excess olive
      oil to other Atlantean cities.  Also, Tyre will begin buying
      sculpture in this episode, providing yet another opportunity
      for profit for the crafty trader.

      Once you have enough marble and money, place the foundation for
      Atlas' Sanctuary and start construction.  If you don't want to
      spend much money, you can wait for yearly tributes of marble
      for the initial phase of construction.  In the meantime, you
      should have a steady supply of wood from your Timber Mills and
      you can create sculptures from the imported bronze (you only
      need to import four bars of bronze at a time for now, but can
      store more at a Storehouse for future sanctuaries or sell
      excess to Tyre for more money).  Let this construction happen
      while you are dealing with the other affairs of the city.

      While you're waiting for your military forces to build up, send
      some raids against Argos to accomplish two things: weaken their
      defenses and obtain a supply of fleece or wine.  If you raid them
      too much, however, they may get hostile and send an invasion to
      your city.  If this happens, your Frigates armed with Atlantean
      Fire should be able to sink their transports before they reach
      land.

      In the case of an invasion, make sure all your Frigate Wharves
      have workers and set them to attack.  Direct them to where the
      enemy transports are and watch your frigates sink them before
      they even reach your shores.

      Now would be a good time to begin chariot construction.  Chariot
      Factories require a steady supply of wood and horses, so build
      a horse ranch a short distance from your elite housing.
      Memphis is already supplying you with wheat, and you have your
      own wood, so chariot construction should begin shortly after
      placing the ranch and factory.

      Once you have roughly 4 companies of charioteers and your three
      frigates equipped with Atlantean Fire, try to conquer Argos.  If
      you don't succeed at first, rebuild and try again.

      During this time of waiting for the quest to appear and the
      sanctuary to finish, begin building multiple granaries for each
      housing block (elite or common) you have and store the numerous
      oranges you are growing.  If you need more workers, build a
      common housing block on the southern continent near the fertile
      meadowland and grow even more oranges there.  The oracle has
      hinted at tough times in the future for Cleitos, so you may
      want to begin stockpiling food, preferably away from the
      sometimes unpredictable ocean waters.

      About 2 years into the episode, Atlas will ask you to summon
      Hercules to relieve him of his world-carrying duties.  Hercules
      requirements are:

            - Excellent science access
            - A working Hippodrome
            - Excellent city-wide observatory access
            - 1500 people in the city
            - 32 amphorae of wine

      Excellent science access requires inventors, scholars,
      astronomers, and curators to pass by his Hall.  You'll need a
      completed Hippodrome of any length, but the bigger it is the
      more income it will produce.  Especially large Hippodromes will
      also attract the attention of the world, and make you a little
      more popular with your allies.  Make sure that an astronomer
      works in every housing block (elite and common).  Either import
      the wine from Atlantis or Argos or stockpile the wine you make
      from grapes.

      When you meet all the requirements, you can summon Hercules and
      send him on the quest.  However, you may want to wait and let
      your treasury grow to a good size (about 20000+dr) in
      anticipation of the upcoming colony episode.

      At this point, you will choose a site for your first colony
      (don't worry, you'll get to build the other one later).
      Malaca will provide Atlantis with wheat, fleece and wine,
      but the city will be vulnerable to attack later on. Thera
      provides an opportunity to jump right into strengthening your
      military.  If you feel that you don't have the monetary
      resources needed to establish a military stronghold, then
      choose Malaca. In this walkthrough, Malaca will be examined
      first.

              64 skeins of fleece for parent city
              64 amphorae of wine for parent city

      Start by building a common housing block north of the beach along
      the southern coastline.  Build a Granary and a couple of Urchin
      Quays to the west of the beach and build a few Carding Sheds.
      Place a Pier to the east of the beach and import olives from
      Syracuse or Memphis, and build Olive Presses to produce olive
      oil.  Soon your housing should evolve to Townhouse level and you
      should have plenty of workers.  Don't feel compelled to evolve to
      high level houses though- all you really need from Malaca is
      wheat, fleece, and wine.

      The Harpy will attack when you start but she will stay by the
      wooded area east of the north pond.  You do not need to build
      Atalanta's Hall because the Harpy does not need to be killed to
      complete the episode, but feel free to take her out if she's
      becoming a hassle.

      While your housing block is evolving, Mycenae will launch an
      attack in about 10 months from the start of the episode.  If
      you feel you can't win, bribe them.

      Now start building Wheat Farms on the meadowland to the west
      and build two Storehouses to hold the 64 sheaves.  Build more
      Carding Sheds (about eight total) and two Storehouses for the
      64 fleece.  Cover the entire southeastern hill with grapevines.
      Build about three or four Growers' Lodges and about six to
      eight Wineries, depending on your labor, and two Storehouses
      for the 64 wine. In about one to two years, you should have
      all the requirements met.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

      Goals:  Fulfill a forthcoming quest
              Monument to the Sky
              Sanctuary to Ares
              4000 people in Townhouse or better
              280 people in Manor or better

      Building a Pyramid and Ares' Fortress should pose no problem,
      especially since you have the help of Atlas' blessing.  Start
      those two projects right away, one after the other, and let
      them run their course until finished.  Also, begin building
      Artemis' Menagerie and importing/requesting meat from Lixus
      and Thera in order to fulfill a requirement for Atalanta's
      Hall.

      During this time of conquest, you should complete your pyramid
      and Ares' Fortress.  A few years in, Ares will issue you the
      quest for Atalanta.  Her requirements are:

            - A sanctuary to Artemis
            - A working museum
            - 32 sides of meat
            - 32 planks of wood
            - 8 companies of soldiers

      As always, keep an eye on your imports.  Money shouldn't be a
      problem, but remember to check the world map every once in
      awhile to ensure that you're importing raw goods whenever
      possible (olives, grapes, bronze) and exporting finished goods
      whenever possible (olive oil, wine, armor, sculpture).

      Now, you'll get to establish a second colony.  Since Malaca
      has already been discussed, Thera will be discussed next.


    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                Just When You Thought It Was Safe (Thera Colony)
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

      Goals:  Support 3 Frigates
              Support 32 Spearmen or better
              Sanctuary to Ares

      Thera is the most challenging of the two colony episodes.  Right
      away, your colony of Knossos disappears forever, a new Greek
      rival Mycenae appears and your foreign vassals get conquered
      by rivals. What a way to start a colony!

      First, examine the terrain.  Along the northern coastline, you
      will have enough room for three Frigate Wharves and two Piers.
      You have fertile meadowland near the beach and to the west.
      There are also deer to the southeast and northwest and some
      boar to the southwest.

      Create your common housing block in between the two fertile
      meadowland patches and as close to the coastline as possible
      without interfering with the construction of Piers and Frigate
      Wharves (stay away from hills in the southwest, that volcanic
      looking mountain seems suspicious).  Begin your fleece and meat
      industries by building a few Carding Sheds and Hunting Lodges.

      If you saved up enough money, build Piers to Cleitos and
      Syracuse.  Cleitos will provide wood and armor for your frigates,
      elite housing, and Ares Fortress.  Syracuse will provide olives
      for olive oil.  Begin stockpiling armor and wood and make olive
      oil.

      When your oil industry is up and running, your common housing
      will be at Townhouse level and you should have lots of
      unemployed labor.  Build a few Masonry Shops to quarry marble
      for Ares' Fortress.  If you're low on funds, build more Carding
      Sheds to produce lots of fleece for export to Syracuse &
      Cleitos, and for gifts to the following cities:

            - Atlantis, so that you can later request orichalc and wine.
            - Cleitos, so that you can later request armor and wood.

      Start building your three Frigate Wharves (all at the same time
      if you have enough labor), and request some orichalc from
      Atlantis so that the frigates can launch Atlantean Fire.  Begin
      laying out the groundwork for your eight elite houses (four
      spearmen/Mansion) by placing your Agora and making sure that
      the area has high appeal.  Finally, select a space for your
      sanctuary and build a few Artisans' Guilds to start
      construction.

      While waiting for your forces to build up, expect attacks from
      Mycenae, Mt. Aulip, and Mt. Pelion.  Your frigates should be
      able to stop most of the transports and your archers should be
      able to handle the rest.

      To finish Ares Fortress you can get bronze to make sculptures
      in 3 ways.

            - Raid Tyre or Saqqara for bronze.
            - Conquer them and import the bronze.
            - Give Tyre or Saqqara any excess goods you have
              (usually fleece) until you can request bronze from them.

      Once you have finished the sanctuary and have 32 spearmen, the
      colony is finished.  You can conquer all the Egyptian and Phoenician
      rivals if you are willing and able, but this can be easier once
      you are back in your parent city, with your charioteers and
      Atlantean Fire-launching frigates.


    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                               Defending Atlantis
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

      Goals:  Rule Mt. Aulip
              Rule Carthage
              Rule Memphis
              Major Shrine to Poseidon
              5000 people in Townhouse or better
              340 people in Manor or better

      Depending on how much conquering you did in previous episodes, you
      may have most if not all of the required cities conquered.  The
      housing goals may also be completed from previous episodes, but
      if not, either build more housing blocks or evolve the ones you
      already have.

      The Mycenaean stronghold is too strong to assault yet, but your
      powerful Atlantean army and fleet should be able to conquer all
      the other rivals.

      Another pyramid is needed: place it to send the artisans to
      work.  You should be able to either create or import all the
      necessary materials.  Pray to Atlas every time he is willing to
      help so you can to complete this pyramid as quickly as possible.

      During this episode, the land around Cleitos slowly begins
      sinking into the sea.  You will have to do some readjustment when
      you find the waterline a lot closer to your housing than it was
      before, but it shouldn't be too big of a deal at this point.

      Your extra Granaries should hold you over until your urchin
      industry is back, and there should still be suitable spots for
      Piers on the new coastline.  As for your frigates, there should
      be space for two wharves on the southern continent in between
      the marsh and the beach.  Rebuild them here as you will need
      them for summoning a hero in the last episode.

      Before you complete the Major Shrine to Poseidon to end the
      episode (you can stop building by right-clicking on the pyramid
      and clicking on Halt Construction), make sure that your orange
      industry in the southern continent is in full production and
      is connected to the northern continent.

      Goals:  Fulfill a forthcoming quest
              Rule Mycenae
              Rule Mt. Pelion
              Temple of Olympus
              5500 people in Townhouse or better
              400 people in Estate or better

      This is it, the final episode!  Your housing requirements should
      be already met.  If not, build more!

      Go conquer Mt. Pelion if you haven't already.  Mycenae cannot be
      conquered until the Quest from Hera is complete, so don't even
      think about it.

      Start construction on the Temple of Olympus.  About 2 months into
      the episode, Hera asks that Jason complete her quest.  Jason's
      Hall requires the following:

            - 3 frigates
            - 2 charioteer companies
            - 64 crates of food
            - 8 horses
            - 16 amphorae of wine

      Summon Jason as early as possible so the quest can be completed.
      Once Zeus is distracted, Mycenae will be vulnerable to attack and
      can finally be conquered by your army.

      A little over a year into the episode the final flood occurs
      which wipes out your northern continent's orange groves.  The
      good side, however, is that the mouth of the river separating
      the continents is now open.  This opens up room for lots of
      trading Piers and Urchin Quays along the banks of the river.

      You can spend the remaining time waiting for the Temple of
      Olympus to complete by building up your trade and urchin
      industries along the newly accessible river and conquer any
      remaining cities that are still rivals.

      Congratulations!  Atlantis is safe and will enter a new Golden
      Age under your guidance and leadership!

      Goals:  Population of 1000
              Support 16 Hoplites or Better
              Treasury of 1500

      This is quite a large area so don't worry too much about planning
      in advance.  There is plenty of room to be less than perfect in the
      placement of your buildings.  A good general strategy is to begin
      by placing a common housing block in the northeast area and
      gradually expand towards the southwest.  The northeast is close
      to important meadows (for all your housing improvement needs)
      and wooded areas.

      Wheat will be your best choice for a long-term food source as
      there is plenty of space for the farms and, in later episodes,
      you'll need to it feed some horses.  Place several farms in the
      northeast meadows for easy access to your housing.

      Be careful when placing Carding Sheds and sheep so that the
      sheep don't end up wandering towards the wolf packs near the top
      of the play area.  One way to avoid this is to place olive trees
      (or grapevines) in the meadow near the wolves.  The animals won't
      bother the trees and the trees will keep sheep from wandering
      near the wolves as they graze.  Sheep will be much more comfortable
      in the northern-most meadow, away from predators.  After all, a
      comfortable sheep is a happy sheep.

      Antissa should be your first trading partner and its corresponding
      trading post should be built relatively early.  Soon after this
      episode begins, Antissa will announce its decision to begin
      purchasing olives. Since olives can be produced pretty easily,
      begin exporting them to Antissa as soon as possible.  Later on the
      residents of your housing will want olive oil, and you will be
      able to either scale back your olive exports or expand your
      production.  Antissa also produces one very important resource
      that your city cannot produce: bronze. Without bronze you will
      not be able to produce armor, and no armor means no Hoplites!  Be
      careful not to import bronze too quickly, however.  Bronze is
      quite expensive and can really put a strain on your treasury.  Try
      to import just enough to meet your armor production needs.  If
      armor can be over-produced, the excess can be stored for future
      episodes or sold to Tiryns.

      In this scenario, no one will buy wood and there really isn't
      anything that can be done with it, so don't harvest wood unless
      unemployment becomes a problem and your citizens need busy work.
      If this happens (and it may), remember that wood can be stored
      and used in later episodes.

      Shortly after the scenario begins, Chimera will begin attacking
      cities.  Though you may have military when this happens, don't
      respond to a city's requests for aid.  Without a hero, your
      troops will be marching to their death.  Unfortunately,
      Bellerophon cannot be summoned until a later episode, so dealing
      with Chimera will have to wait?

      Because of the rocky and narrow coastline, placing Piers can be
      difficult.  This will be particularly problematic if your main
      city is not near the coast, but don't be too concerned with
      this.  You will be able to produce most of the goods you will
      need and won't need to resort to much trading until later
      episodes.  If you enjoy trading, meat can be exported to Midea
      for some extra cash.

      Watch your drachmas!  It can be easy to overspend and go broke
      in this episode. When you get to a point where you are able to
      turn a profit, don't be in too much of a hurry to finish the
      episode.  Taking your time will allow you to pad your treasury
      and give you a little cushion in later episodes.


    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                           In Memory of Abas (Lycia)
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

      Goals:  Rule Heraeum
              Rule Tiryns
              Rule Midea

      All three of the cities you must rule are very weak militarily.
      You should be able to begin attacking them almost immediately.
      When planning your attacks, try to be aware of three factors:

      First, the order in which you conquer the cities doesn't really
      matter, but Heraeum is the only city that produces a good that
      your city does not (marble).  When you conquer them they will
      give marble as a yearly tribute.  Thus, it may be to your
      advantage to conquer them early so that you will begin receiving
      marble as soon as possible.  You will need quite a bit of marble
      in later episodes?

      Second, keep producing armor to replace what is lost in combat,
      and to make sure you maintain as many Hoplites as possible.  When
      sending troops to conquer a city, send every available soldier.
      This will reduce the chance of the costly (and-time consuming)
      military rebuilding that comes with defeat.

      Lastly, three or four companies (minimum!) of Hoplites should
      be enough to take the cities, depending on the difficulty level.
      If you want to have an even greater military superiority, try
      building a Horse Ranch or two.  There should be plenty of wheat
      available and ample workers as well.

      Periodically, you may have to defend your vassals from attack by
      your other rivals.  However, if you strike quickly enough, you
      will be able to take all three cities before they have much of
      a chance to try to liberate each other.

      Finally, try to build up some cash before heading to the colony
      episode.  Once Antissa begins buying wood, you may as well begin
      selling it to them since there should be more than enough idle
      workers and there's always plenty of wood!

                                Big Game Hunting
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

      Goals:  Sanctuary to Hera
              Slay the Medusa

      When this episode begins, make sure you build a Storehouse right
      away. You will be receiving olive oil and fleece tributes and will
      need a place to put them.  It is very important not to miss these
      tributes because Heraeum cannot produce either good.  Medusa
      appears early on in the episode in the eastern section of the
      city, so that area should probably be avoided.  Perseus is
      needed to slay her, but it may take awhile to summon him, as
      some of his requirements are pretty lofty:

            - A Sanctuary to Zeus
            - A Sanctuary to Hermes
            - 3,000 Drachmas
            - 16 skeins of fleece
            - 6 pieces of sculpture

      The fleece, sculpture and drachmas should be no problem, so
      focus on the Sanctuaries.  The most difficult part of this
      episode is that THREE of them must be constructed.  Fortunately,
      Heraeum has a marble quarry!  You will want to begin hewing
      marble as soon as possible because constructing three sanctuaries
      will require a great deal of marble.

      When building sanctuaries, try to build them as close to the
      marble and bronze areas as possible.  If a sanctuary is placed
      too far away from the materials it needs (marble, wood and
      sculpture) construction will be slowed.  Artisans like building
      materials to be stored near the construction site, so place
      Storehouses near the areas where you will build the sanctuaries
      and store the three sanctuary goods there.  This will help you
      enjoy the benefits of the sanctuaries as early as possible.

      It may be best to build Hermes' Sanctuary first since it is the
      smallest (and easiest to build) and will speed up trade when
      completed.  Remember that Zeus' Sanctuary is enormous and the
      most difficult to place so make sure to place it before Hera's,
      ensuring that you have enough open space to place it.

      As in previous episodes, ignore the requests for aid in battling
      Chimera.  Though his hall can be built, Bellerophon cannot yet be
      summoned.  The hall needs horses and no Horse Ranch can be built
      in this episode.

      Place a Pier to Lycia early.  The narrow waterways provide only a
      few good sites for Piers and placing it early will keep you from
      inadvertently building where you want to place a Pier.  You will
      need to trade some bronze to Lycia to keep your treasury in good
      shape.  Be aware that you will have to produce A LOT of sculpture
      over the course of this episode (over 40 pieces!), so make sure
      your bronze production is adequate for export and for supplying
      your Sculpture Studios.

      Don't bother with elite housing in this episode.  There isn't much
      military activity, and should any enemy invade Heraeum, they can
      either be bribed or crushed in a highly entertaining manner by
      Zeus once his sanctuary is completed. Corinth will eventually
      cause trouble, demanding things and harassing your allies/vassals.
      If they become hostile, they may attack, so remember Zeus's
      sanctuary!

      Medusa will be more aggressive at higher difficulty levels, so
      be sure to give her a wide berth.


    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                        A Question of Etiquette (Lycia)
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

      Goals:  Fulfill a forthcoming quest

      There will be a couple of early invasions, but they should be
      nothing to worry about if you've been maintaining your military
      forces adequately.  By this point, you should have at least 10-12
      elite houses in order to have a military that will make things
      easy on yourself.  It may be worthwhile to take the city of Solymi
      in order to secure another source of bronze, but this city will
      revolt and liberate itself at the end of the episode.

      A tidal wave occurs in the south by the Piers, so be wary of
      building extensively in that area.

      This is a pretty straightforward episode.  Just meet the requirements
      of Bellerophon's Hall and fend off any attacks. Bellerophon requires:

            - 24 amphorae of wine
            - 24 bars of bronze
            - 15 horses
            - Excellent city-wide tax coverage
            - Treasury of 10,000 drachma


    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                    If You Can't Beat Him, Join Him (Lycia)
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

      Goals:  Rule Themiscrya
              Rule Solymi
              Slay A Monster

      This is similar to the previous episode.  The monster is Chimera
      and while you are waiting for him to turn up, feel free to
      attack Themiscrya and Solymi.  You can also attack any of your
      other rivals if you have any and have time.  You may have already
      conquered some of these cities in previous episodes, so this
      episode may be rather short.

      Goals:  Population of 3000
              Treasury of 30000
              Slay A Monster

      Again, several of these goals may already be met when the episode
      begins.  Try to meet the requirements of Bellerophon's Hall as
      early as possible (watch your bronze supply!) so that damage
      from the Echidna will be minimized.  Bellerophon requires:

            - 24 amphorae of wine
            - 24 bars of bronze
            - 15 horses
            - Excellent city-wide tax coverage
            - Treasury of 10,000 drachma

      Goals:  Sanctuary to Apollo
              Fulfill a Forthcoming Quest

      Begin building Apollo's sanctuary right away because you will
      have to wait a while to receive the quest from Hera.  You will
      need to import marble from Heraeum in order to complete the
      sanctuary so be sure you have plenty of storage space around the
      area where you build it.  You may also want to export any excess
      goods (especially wine to Heraeum) to free some storage space.

      When you receive Hera's quest, build Bellerophon's Hall and
      dispatch him when he arrives in the city.  Bellerophon requires:

            - 24 amphorae of wine
            - 24 bars of bronze
           - 15 horses
            - Excellent city-wide tax coverage
            - Treasury of 10,000 drachma

      If you choose to continue playing after this adventure is done,
      quite a large city can be constructed on this area.  How high can
      you get your population?

      Starting off well in Two Worlds Collide is essential, as the
      Adventure introduction says- this is a very difficult Adventure.
      Throughout the Adventure, much of the play area can be cruel and
      unforgiving, so advance planning and good housing placement will
      save many headaches later on.

      The first thing you should do upon starting this episode is
      immediately pause the game and survey the landscape.  Getting a
      good place where you can lay down your common housing is key.  You
      will want to fit the most amount of common housing into the
      tightest possible space, while still allowing room for all the
      other buildings it will take to fully evolve those huts into
      Apartments.  Lay out a couple blocks of common housing near the
      entry point on the left side of the play area.  If at all possible,
      avoid building anything to the east of the silver mines, even the
      flat ground to the northeast of there is unstable.

      Once people start migrating to the city, and you have enough
      workers available, then start building husbandry buildings.  Place
      four or five Fisheries near the area where you have set up the
      common housing.  Also extend a road to the southeast and set up
      a few Carding Sheds on the small patch of meadow there.  Place a
      Granary for the fish and a Storehouse for the fleece.  Also
      place two extra Storehouses out of the way (but not too far!),
      and set them to accept wood and marble.  You'll be getting gifts
      shortly, and you're going to want the room to store them.

      Go on harvesting fleece and fish, and place enough culture
      buildings to evolve your huts into tenements.  Once there are
      enough workers again, lay out a bronze, armor and sculpture
      industry block on the elevated terrain to the south of your
      housing, right next to the copper ore. Set up a trading post
      to Athens nearby.  You can export 12 each of armor and sculpture
      to Athens, but you'll need to do it quickly.  This trading
      partner will NOT be around for long!

      When Athens is conquered by a rival, shift your industry focus
      to silver mining.  Build four or five mints near the silver ore
      to the southeast.  This is also a good time to build the Palace.
      Because there are soon going to be attacks on your city, it is
      best to place the Palace as far away as possible from the
      city's invasion points, two of which are at the roads that
      enter the play area, and two more of which are on the eastern
      edge of the terrain.  Placing Towers near your Palace is a
      good last line of defense should invaders be knocking on your
      door.

      Before building up the elite housing, there are a few things
      you'll need to do.  First, set up an olive oil and wine
      industry on the southeastern-most patch of meadow.  Keep all
      the buildings as far south as possible.  Next, build the
      Forge of Hephaestus.  A good spot for the Forge is on the
      raised land directly south of the bronze ore.  Place it in
      a spot close enough to the Foundries and Armories to take
      advantage of Hephaestus' blessing power when the sanctuary
      is finished.  You should receive just enough marble and
      wood from Athens and Sparta to complete this project.  If
      not, then there is always raiding to get what you want.
      At the start of the third year, invasions from Knossos
      will commence.  Your sanctuary is most likely still getting
      built, so you will have to fend off the invaders with
      rabble, which shouldn't be too hard for the first couple of
      years.  Build two or three Towers at every invasion point,
      and walls to slow the enemy long enough for the Towers to
      get in a few good shots.  Once the Forge is complete, pray
      to Hephaestus when your are attacked so that he will loan
      you Talos to help defend the city.  You should probably get
      in the habit of requesting Talos' assistance every time
      you're invaded, as some of these attacks will be large.

      Once your olive oil, wine, fleece and armor industries are
      booming, and you have plenty of cash in the vault, then it's
      time to start laying out your elite housing.  The best place
      to start is probably the piece of land just to the east of
      the northern-most meadow. Place a bunch of Storehouses set
      to 'get' all the items for the Grand Agora just to the north
      of the river.  Then layout the elite housing, but make sure
      you make the best use of the space, and cram in as many elite
      houses as you can.  Place Commemorative Monuments wherever
      they will fit to boost the appeal.  Once your elite housing
      can support 32 hoplites, it's on to the next episode.


    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                             The Battle of Knossos
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

      Goals:  Fulfill a Forthcoming Quest
              Support 64 Hoplites or better
              Rule Knossos

      Now that you have at least 32 hoplites, it's a good idea to attack
      Athens right off the bat.  Since by now you no longer have any
      allies in the world, you will have to defeat them by your
      lonesome.  If you didn't spend too much time in the first episode,
      you should be able to defeat them in 1 attack.  Once you've
      conquered Athens, start importing as much marble from them as
      you can.  You'll have a limited amount of time, however, as
      Knossos won't let you rule Athens for long.  If you get the
      impulse to go right off the bat and attack Knossos, be warned:
      they cannot be beaten until Hermes' quest is completed.  You
      can chip away at their military strength, but attacking Knossos
      is best saved for later.
      As you're collecting marble, which will be used to build the
      Arbor of Athena, you should also be preparing to meet the
      requirements of Achilles, so you can summon him to the city
      and send him on Hermes Quest.  Achilles hall requires:

            - 32 suits of armor
            - 3 Hoplite companies or better
            - A Sanctuary to Hephaestus
            - No unrest in the city
            - 16 amphorae of wine

      Once you have all the requirements met, summon Achilles to the
      city, and send him on the quest as soon as possible.  By this
      time, you should have enough marble to start building the Arbor
      of Athena.  She will help fend off attacks as they get bigger
      and more frequent.  Placement of this sanctuary is crucial.  The
      best place for this sanctuary is the raised piece of land to
      the immediate south-west of your olive oil/wine industry.  STAY
      AWAY from the wide-open area in the east, as that land will
      become "unstable" later in the adventure.  Also stay away from
      the island in the middle, as you will want that space for
      something else later on.
      When Athena's sanctuary is complete, connect it with a road to
      wherever your Olive Presses are, so you can take advantage of
      Athena's blessing.  By now you should have added an olive oil
      vendor to the agora(s) in your common housing section, and
      should have evolved them to Apartments.  That means you most
      likely will have an abundance of unemployment.  For every
      100 unemployed people, you should build a trireme, and the
      more triremes, the better.
      Once you have completed Hermes quest, begin construction on
      a second block of elite housing, or, if possible, expand on
      the one that you've already built.  You'll need around 16
      Manors to support enough hoplites for both conquering Knossos
      and to achieve the mission goal.  When you have at least 60
      hoplites, send all your troops, triremes, and Achilles to
      attack Knossos.  If you don't beat them the first time, just
      keep enough armor in a Storehouse near your elite housing so
      you can regenerate your hoplites quickly, and send them right
      back out again.
      Once Knossos is conquered, you'll just have to wait for your
      elite housing to rearm its residents so that they are Hoplites
      again.  You'll need 64 of them. Then, it's onto the next episode.


    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                         The Wrath of Poseidon and Sons
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

      Goals:  Rule Athens
              Rule Sparta
              24 Sheaves of wheat for colony
              Support 12 Horsemen

      At the start of this episode, you'll gain some much-needed
      allies.  Mt. Aulip, Mt. Pelion, Cyme and Themiscyra will all
      become your allies within the first few months of this episode.
      Take advantage of these new trade opportunities.  Wood for
      sanctuaries and triremes can be bought from Mt. Aulip, and
      marble can be bought from Themiscyra.  As for exports, Mt.
      Aulip and Mt. Pelion both buy wine, Cyme buys olive oil and
      Themiscyra buys fleece.  Sell all of your excess goods and keep
      building that treasury.

      The next thing you're going to want to do in this episode is
      secure a source of wheat.  Both Sidon and Thebes carry wheat,
      it's up to you to determine how you want to secure it.  The
      best way to attain wheat is probably by raiding.  Both Sidon
      and Thebes produce wheat, but the Phoenician city of Sidon
      has fewer defenses.  If you have triremes, be sure to send
      them along as triremes can carry MUCH more goods than just
      hoplites alone.

      Be sure to select "wheat" when choosing plunder on the troop
      selection screen.  You could also conquer one of the cities,
      set up a pier and buy/request it from them, or you can keep
      them as rivals and give them gifts until their "docile" state
      will allow you to request the item.  Build a couple of Storehouses
      to accept wheat and set it to stockpile.  If you do conquer one
      of these Atlantean client cities, the Atlanteans will make sure
      that they're not your vassal for long, so take advantage of the
      time you have to trade with them. Request food (wheat) as long
      as they're willing to give it to you.

      Once you have at least 24 sheaves of wheat, dispatch it
      immediately to take care of that episode goal.  Then turn wheat
      stockpiling off, and build a couple Horse Ranches near your
      elite housing.  A couple of good spots are just north of the
      river on the west side, and in any of the free meadow space
      to the northwest. Start building up your elite housing, and
      get as many horsemen as possible.  Keep your wheat out of
      Granaries; you'll want to feed every bit of it to horses.

      About five to six months in to this episode, however, the
      biggest hurdle you will have encountered thus far will
      strike.  A triple-threat will bombard your city all at once.
      First, an earthquake will cut its way all the way through
      the open land to the west.  If you heeded the above advice
      and didn't build there, then this won't affect you too much.
      The earthquake will, however, cut off the silver ore from
      the rest of the city, making it impossible to mine.  When
      this happens, simply delete your mints so you can use
      those workers in other areas.

      At the same time, a flood will wipe out some of your buildings
      in the mid-west area near the shore.  After this happens,
      simply pause the game and re-place all the housing and other
      buildings you lost.

      Finally, while all these disasters are ravaging your city,
      Poseidon will invade from the west.  He will knock down a few
      Fisheries, and possibly a Trireme Wharf, and then curse your
      Fisheries and Trireme Wharves.  The duration of the curses
      depends upon difficulty level.  This is when setting up a
      cheese industry in the northwest meadow comes in handy.  After
      Poseidon invades, of course, you will be unable to trade by
      sea for a year, so if you're still in the process of getting
      wheat from Sidon, you will have to rely on requests for a
      while.  The Poseidon invasion and tidal wave will repeat every
      2 years.

      About 14 months after the initial Poseidon/tidal wave/earthquake
      triple threat, another triple disaster occurs, although this
      one isn't as devastating.  This time, an Atlas invasion is
      combined with a small earthquake to the south of the bronze
      ore and a small landslide near the exit road in the mid-south
      area.  Both the earthquake and landslide should cause minimal
      damage, at best.  Atlas will take out a few Storehouses, destroy
      a few buildings, and turn every walker he encounters into stone.
      Nothing you can't handle.

      About 3 years into the episode, the last large hurdle presents
      itself: Cyclops.  When the first "Cyclops Attacks" message pops
      up, Odysseus' Hall becomes available.  Because Cyclops doesn't
      arrive in your city until 4 months after the initial "Cyclops
      Attacks" message, it gives you enough time to meet Odysseus'
      requirements and have him in the city before the Cyclops
      arrives.  Odysseus Hall requires:

            - Great popularity
            - Excellent city-wide health
            - 8 elite houses
            - 32 jugs of olive oil
            - 16 amphorae of wine

      Defeating the Cyclops is not a mission requirement, and for the
      most part he stays near the area that was demolished by an
      earthquake; it's up to you whether to summon Odysseus or not.
      Afterwards, it's time to take over Athens and Sparta.  When
      you have a decent-sized army (around 40 hoplites, 16
      Horsemen), chip away at Athens and Sparta with attacks, one
      at a time.  Don't forget to send Odysseus along on those
      attacks, if you have him. O nce Athens and Sparta bend to
      your will and become your vassals, the only goal left for
      you to fulfill should be to sustain 12 horsemen, assuming
      you don't already have them.  Once you get the 12 horsemen,
      it's on to the next episode, which is the first colony
      mission.

      You'll be presented with a choice between Knossos and Salamis
      (you will eventually build both colonies).  We recommend
      playing Knossos first.  Knossos provides an additional supply
      of valuable marble, which will be helpful for all your
      Sanctuary-building needs.


    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                       Inroads to Egypt (Knossos Colony)
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

      Goals:  Rule Memphis
              Rule Thebes
              Rule Saqqara
              Sanctuary to any God

      Start off this mission by setting up your common housing blocks,
      Fishing Wharves, Hunting Lodges, olive oil industry, and Masonry
      Shops. Build a Pier to Mycenae to import fleece and bronze.  Use
      the bronze to make armor for your elite housing and sculptures
      for whatever sanctuary you build.  In the first year you will
      get gifts of wood from Mt. Aulip, wheat and fleece from
      Mycenae, and wine from Themiscyra.

      When you have enough marble, start building one of the
      sanctuaries.  You can build either Hephaestus' or Dionysus'
      sanctuary.  Dionysus' sanctuary is quick and easy to build, plus
      it gives you a source of wine that you'll need to evolve your
      elite housing.  When you're done building the sanctuary, build a
      Pier to Athens to sell off any excess sculpture you're producing.
      You can also build a Pier to Cyme and sell off any extra jugs
      of olive oil.  Tax Offices are also available in this episode,
      so make good use of them.  Having a large bank account is a good
      idea, because there will be quite a few Atlantean invaders
      looking to destroy the city.

      Around 2- years into the episode, Poseidon will invade, destroy
      a few shore buildings, curse the others and suspend trade for
      a year.

      When you have enough cash, lay out your elite housing.  There's
      not much room in the area so you're just going to have to squeeze
      in as many elite houses as you can.  The western region will
      probably have the most open space at this point.

      Evolve your elite housing as much as you can.  Give gifts of olive
      oil to Sidon until they are willing to give you wheat for your
      Horse Ranches.  Remember to place a Storehouse set to accept
      wheat, and set all Granaries to not accept wheat, in order to
      keep it out of the food vendors' hands.

      You should also start building a few triremes.  Use the wood
      given to you from Mt. Aulip, along with the armor you're
      producing to build as many as you can.  Once you have a few
      companies of horsemen and a few triremes, start sending out
      attacks.  Saqqara is the weakest, so attack them first.  After
      defeating them, you will most likely need to rely on your
      allies and vassals for help in conquering Thebes and Memphis.

      Send allies with your attacks, plus request individual military
      strikes also.  The more you wear down the enemy, the quicker
      they will fall.  Make sure to give gifts to any city that you
      request an attack from to keep their favor high, so they will
      continue to be available for strikes.  Go on to conquer Thebes
      and Memphis as quickly as you can.  If it takes you too long,
      however, one or more of the cities may rebel and return to the
      Atlantean fold, or be just taken over outright by the
      imperialistic war machine.  Thus, the conquering of all three
      must be done quickly. When all three are under your power,
      it's on to the next episode.


    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                              The Cleitos Project
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

      Goals:  Fulfill a forthcoming quest
              24 sheaves of wheat for colony

      You now have three more allies thanks to your colony's war
      efforts: Memphis, Saqqara and Thebes.  These cities' huge military
      forces will be indispensable in the upcoming missions, so start
      giving them generous gifts now to increase their favor.  You
      should build a Pier to Thebes and start buying wheat from them,
      and requests should be kept to a minimum, since in all
      likelihood you'll be making heavy offensive military requests
      in the next colony mission.  At the beginning, it's best to set
      wheat to stockpiling so that the Horse Ranches don't keep
      taking it.  Once you have 24 sheaves, dispatch it to the colony.
      Remember to turn stockpiling off once you dispatch the wheat
      so your Horse Ranches can raise horses again.

      After about a year, the quest message appears, and it requires
      Odysseus. Odysseus' requirements should already be met, since
      you last summoned him in episode three. Send him on the quest
      as soon as he gets to the city, and then it's on to the next
      episode.  Remember, Odysseus requires:

            - Great popularity
            - Excellent city-wide health
            - 8 elite houses
            - 32 jugs of olive oil
            - 16 amphorae of wine

      After you finish here, it's off to another colony.


    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                        The Secret Base (Salamis Colony)
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

      Goals:  Rule Carthage
              Rule Tyre
              Rule Sidon
              Sanctuary to any God

      Salamis is another colony with limited room to build.  Keep in
      mind that you're going to want as many elite houses as you can,
      so plan your other building accordingly.  Set up the bronze and
      timber industry to the west, and your grapes/wine industry on
      the island to the north.  Keep your common housing as far to the
      northwest as you can, so you have as much room left as possible
      to the south and east for your elite housing.  Your Pier can only
      be accessed by traders on the south coast, so set up a few as
      far to the west side as you can.

      The first thing you'll need to start importing is food, because
      there are no sources of food in the city.  Set up a Pier to
      Sparta to import meat and a Trading Post to Cyme to import fish.
      You should also build a Pier to Mycenae to import fleece and
      olive oil.  If you have a booming wine industry, then a Pier to
      Mt. Aulip allows you to export up to 36 jugs a year.  Other sources
      of trade income: Athens buys armor and sculpture, Thebes buys
      sculpture, Memphis buys armor and grapes, and Mycenae buys
      wood.  You'll also need to import marble for the sanctuary from
      either Themiscyra or Athens.

      Next, determine which sanctuary to place and where to place it.
      In this episode, both the Arbor of Athena and Hermes' Refuge are
      available.  Due to the close quarters, Hermes' Refuge is probably
      the best idea.

      When your city is finally running smoothly, and there are
      plenty of workers to go around, then lay out your elite
      housing.  Make use of all the land you have, and build up as
      many elite houses as possible.  Also build as many triremes
      along the south shore as you can fit.  This is, after all,
      primarily a military episode.

      Get wheat from Thebes to feed the horses in your Horse
      Ranches.  As soon as a majority of your elite houses has
      evolved and holds a good amount of hoplites and horsemen,
      start sending out attacks.  Sidon and Thebes will be the
      easiest to conquer, so get that out of the way first.
      Carthage, on the other hand, is a military powerhouse.  They,
      along with Syracuse, are also looking to expand their range
      of power, and will throw quite a few attacks at your allies.

      If you don't send enough troops to help, you could lose
      multiple allies and vassals before it's all over.  It will
      most likely take a lot of attacks to defeat Carthage, as
      well as a good amount of help from whatever allies and vassals
      you have left.  Request strikes from your most powerful allies,
      most likely the Egyptians, and bring along allied troops with
      your attacks.  Eventually, the onslaught will catch up to
      Carthage and it will fall to your power.  Also, don't forget to
      keep the Egyptians happy by sending them gifts.

      When Carthage, Tyre and Sidon are all under your power, it's
      back to the wonderful city of Mycenae.


    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                             Attrition and Survival
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

      Goals:  Population of 4000
              Fulfill a forthcoming quest

      By now, your city should be big enough to support 4,000 people, or
      at least close to it.  Add a few extra houses wherever there's room
      to get to this goal.

      The quest comes after a few years, but there is plenty to do in
      the meantime. Namely, build Zeus' Stronghold.  Remember that
      island with the prime real estate in the middle of the city?
      Well, it's time to give Zeus his own private island.  If you
      have enough extra workers, place 5-6 artisan guilds to make
      the construction go faster.  Buy and request marble from
      Knossos, Themiscyra and Athens.

      A couple years into the episode, your colony at Knossos will
      incur the wrath of Poseidon, and will be unable to trade for
      a year.  You can still request marble from them, however.  Get
      all the marble you need before the fourth year of the episode,
      because Knossos will be wiped clean off the face of the
      earth.  Mt. Aulip will suffer the same fate about a year later.

      About a month into the episode, Carthage returns to Atlantean
      hands, now stronger than ever.  It will join Thera and Syracuse
      in attacking your vassals and allies throughout the episode,
      so have troops and triremes on standby to help them out as
      much as possible, although it won't always be possible to
      help them all out because of multiple attacks closely spaced.
      Send troops the your most valuable allies, and always try to
      keep some in reserve for the next attack.  Don't attempt to
      assault these three main aggressors yet, as they're still
      too strong, but feel free to liberate any of your allies
      that fall under the Atlantean yoke.

      Pretty soon, the invaders will find their way into your
      city, so be prepared to either bribe them off or kill them
      on your soil.  By now, all of the invading armies are going
      to be huge, so be prepared for some tough battles.  If you
      were quick in building Zeus' Stronghold, however, you can
      pray to him for a quick and easy defense against any invading
      army, no matter how large.

      Around 5 years into the episode, Salamis will be attacked by
      the Cyclops.  This will allow you to construct Odysseus' Hall.
      Although this isn't an episode requirement, it's a good idea
      to summon Odysseus and send him to the aid of your colony,
      if possible.  You'll only have a short time, and don't be too
      discouraged if the Cyclops manages to destroy your colony.

      The episode's quest finally arrives 5 years in. Perseus'
      hall will become available at this time. Perseus requires:

            - A sanctuary to Athena
            - A sanctuary to Hermes
            - 3000 drachmas
            - 16 skeins of fleece
            - 6 pieces of sculpture

      The only requirement here that you should still need is
      Hermes' sanctuary.  If you are already finished building
      Zeus' Stronghold, then place down Hermes' Refuge and a
      couple of artisans' guilds.  Materials permitting,
      construction shouldn't take long.  As soon as it's complete,
      send for Perseus, dispatch him on the quest, and head on to
      the next and final episode in this epic war with the Atlanteans.


    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                    Zeus' Retribution: The Fall of Atlantis
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

      Goals:  Fulfill a Forthcoming Quest

      Near the start of the episode, Poseidon will be up to his usual
      antics again, and will punish Sparta, preventing trade with them
      for a year.  Aphrodite will soon follow suit and punish
      Themiscyra, which will soon be conquered by one of your rivals.
      The key to this episode is to not worry too much about what's
      happening in the world at this point.  Your main concern
      should be maintaining a large army to protect your city from
      invasions.  As more of your allies fall, more rivals will
      start attacking.  Having Athena, Talos, and Zeus protecting
      your city will be enough once in a while, but sometimes you
      will have to come to blows with the invaders, and having a
      bunch of horsemen companies makes withstanding an attack a
      lot easier.

      About four to five months into the episode, Aphrodite will
      unleash Hector upon the city, and Achilles Hall will become
      available.  His requirements will most likely already be met,
      as you already summoned him in the 2nd episode.  Summon him
      immediately so he can vanquish Hector and minimize the
      damage.  Achilles hall requires:

            - 32 suits of armor
            - 3 Hoplite companies or better
            - A Sanctuary to Hephaestus
            - No unrest in the city
            - 16 amphorae of wine

      A few months after the Hector invasion, the Cyclops will try
      his hand at attacking your city again.  Odysseus' hall will
      become available.  Like the previous episode, you should have
      all the requirements met when you place down the hall, so
      summon him immediately so he can put the Cyclops in its place.
      Odysseus requires:

            - Great popularity
            - Excellent city-wide health
            - 8 elite houses
            - 32 jugs of olive oil
            - 16 amphorae of wine

      Around two years into the episode comes another Poseidon
      invasion, which will now occur every year.  If you have Zeus'
      Stronghold finished by now, however, you won't have to worry
      about Poseidon doing too much damage.  Zeus will layeth the
      smacketh down on his brother.  A few months later, a double
      attack by Atlas and the Kraken will descend on your city.
      Zeus will take care of Atlas like he did to Poseidon.  To
      defeat the Kraken, Perseus' hall will become available.
      Most of the requirements should still be met from the previous
      episode, so summon him quickly to prevent the Kraken from
      doing too much damage to your coastline. Perseus requires:

            - A sanctuary to Athena
            - A sanctuary to Hermes
            - 3000 drachmas
            - 16 skeins of fleece
            - 6 pieces of sculpture

      Finally, after three years into this episode, Zeus will issue
      the quest to end the Atlantean threat.  The quest requires
      Odysseus, who is already in your city, so all you need to
      do is dispatch him on the quest, and forever be done with
      the evil Atlanteans!


  ===========================================================================
                       Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
  ===========================================================================

    This is the section I've dedicated to questions that I deem are asked
    quite a bit, and instead of receiving the same questions over and over,
    they will be asked and answered below.  Be sure to read this section
    prior to asking me a question.  Towards the top is a link to a message
    board that I tend to frequent, so you could visit that instead of sending
    an email.  It's just whatever's more convenient for you.  ^_^


    Q:  Do most buildings need road access?

    A:  Yes.  Most buildings do.  Without road access, the building will
        not get any employees or do anything.


    Q:  Where can I find a list of the requirements for a Sanctuary?

    A:  You can find them in my Sanctuary FAQ, which is seperate from this
        document.


    Q:  What happens when a house runs out of something?

    A:  Well, it all depends on which item it runs out of.  The closer
        that item is on the "necessity" chart, the lower (in class)
        the house will drop.  Say, you've got a "Residence" that has
        just run out of food.  Well, that house will drop ALL the way
        down.  It's missing one of the VERY first things that are
        required for housing.


    Q:  Where are the meadows?

    A:  Meadows are the purple-spotted areas.  They look like the purple
        spots that forms along with mold on old bread.  I'm sure you've
        seen a piece of moldy bread, right?  Well, that's exactly what
        the ground looks like, honestly.


    Q:  I've built farms, and I have a lot of unemployed people.  Why
        aren't my farms up and running?

    A:  Well, you are obviously new to the City-Building series, so
        I'd like to suggest that you purchase the previous games in the
        series.  To answer your question, you MUST have roads leading
        to the farms.  Farms are supposed to be treated just like
        most any other building.


    Q:  Why isn't my Olive Press receiving olives?

    A:  Well, this could be a number of things.  It could be due
        to a lack of labor at either the Olive Press or the
        Growers' Lodge.  It could also be due to the lack of a
        road.  The Growers' Lodge must have a road connected to it.
        The same holds true for the Olive Press.

        This same problem can also occur at the Winery, which
        takes Grapes and makes wine out of them.


    Q:  Why won't my Urchin gatherers gather Urchins?

    A:  Well, this is a number of things.  Be sure you have road
        access to your Urchin Quay.  Be sure you have a full staff
        on-hand.  Also, be sure there is no deep water between
        the Urchin Quay and the Urchins.  The gatherers cannot
        pass deep water!


    Q:  Why won't food be delivered to my Granary?
         
    A:  This could be one of many things to be honest.  Be sure
        your Granary has road access and a full staff.  Be sure
        that the place making the food has road access and a
        full staff as well.  Check your settings for your Granary.
        You may have them set to 'Don't Accept', which will disable
        the Granary's ability to accept that type of food.

              
    Q:  Why don't the roads and houses near the Granary improve?

    A:  A Granary has a Negative (-) desirability level.  People
        don't enjoy living near one, so don't build a Granary too
        close to your housing.


    Q:  Why does my Granary keep collapsing?

    A:  Poor maintenance is the reason.  Granaries are fairly
        large structures, and they have a tendency to collapse.
        Build a Maintenance Office nearby to prevent damage in
        the future.

    Q:  My Horse Ranches have full labor, road access, and wheat,
        but they are not producing horses. What's wrong?

    A:  This problem is specific to the UK version of Zeus. Download
        the Enhancement Pack to correct this problem. Installing
        Poseidon will also solve this problem.


    Q:  I built a Fishery but the boat just sits there at the dock.

    A:  The fishing boat does not have a clear path along open waters
        to the fishing points, which are marked by jumping fish. Scout
        the coastline for a more suitable location to build a Fishery.


    Q:  I built a Pier but no trade ships are showing up.

    A:  Right-click the Pier or check the World Map to make sure that the
        city served by the Pier is currently trading. Also, make sure the
        Pier has a clear path to open waters.


    Q:  My Pier and/or Horse Ranch says that it needs road access, but it
        is already placed next to a road.

    A:  Don't worry if you get this message. Your Piers and Horse Ranches
        still have road access and will be able to access labor.
        Installing the Enhancement pack or Poseidon fixes this issue.


    Q:  I've built a Hippodrome, and I have working Horse Ranches, but
        there are no races taking place.

    A:  A racehorse handler must first leave the Hippodrome and retrieve
        horses from a Horse Ranch. The handler will only walk so far to
        get them, so ranches should be placed near the Hippodrome. If the
        Hippodrome is connected to more than one road, the handler will
        choose which of the roads he wants to use to get horses. Make sure
        the road he chooses is connected to a Horse Ranch.


    Q:  Why aren't my Universities producing any curators?

    A:  This can happen if there is a University close to your Museum. A
        University that is too close to a Museum will constantly supply
        the Museum with curators, overriding the need for Universities
        farther away to produce curators. To get around this, delete the
        University closest to the Museum. The other Universities in the
        city should start producing curators.


    Q:  A hero keeps getting stuck while trying to cross a Hippodrome
        crosswalk.

    A:  If this happens, delete the section of Hippodrome that the hero
        is trying to cross and then undo or rebuild that section of
        Hippodrome. In most cases, you can also delete the Hero's Hall,
        move the Hall outside of the Hippodrome, and resummon the hero.


    Q:  Why can't I control my military units?

    A:  Make sure Auto Defend is off in the Options menu, and remember
        to select the company by clicking on the base of the company's
        banner, or on a soldier of the company.

    Q:  Why aren't my rabble or archers listed when I try to dispatch
        troops abroad?

    A:  Rabble and archers are ordinary citizens organized into a
        militia. They do not have the weapons, armor and supplies to
        travel abroad. The following units can be dispatched abroad:
        hoplites, horsemen, spearmen, charioteers, heroes, triremes,
        frigates and mythical warriors that Ares and Artemis provide.


    Q:  Why can't I dispatch triremes or frigates abroad?

    A:  Not all locations are accessible by sea. In the Enlist Forces
        panel, the bottom of the Navy section will say 'Not accessible
        by sea.'


    Q:  I wish to send triremes or frigates to a city that can be
        reached by sea. When I try to dispatch the ships, none are
        listed in the Enlist Forces panel, even though I have triremes
        or frigates in my city. Why can't I send the ships?

    A:  Triremes or frigates are only listed on the Enlist Forces panel
        when they are manned. To call the crews for all the ships, go to
        the Military tab and click the 'Crew All' button. If you want to
        man only selected ships, go to the detailed Military report by
        clicking the Magnifying Glass button on the Military Tab. Then,
        click the button next to each of the desired ships until the
        button reads 'Crewed'. You can also call the crews of specific
        ships by clicking on the ship and issuing the 'Call Crew to
        Ship' command.


    Q:  Just how do Oceanids reach the shore? I can't see their ships,
        and my frigates or triremes can't attack them while they are in
        the water.

    A:  Oceanids don't have ships; they swim under water until they reach
        the shore. You can tell where they are by the foamy bubbles that
        break the surface of the water. If Poseidon has loaned you his
        Kraken to defend your city, he will fight them as they approach.
        Otherwise, you will have to wait until the Oceanids set foot on
        land before you can attack them.


    Q:  How do I send my hero on a quest?

    A:  In Zeus, select the Overview Tab, then click on the green button
        next to the quest's icon. The Enlist Forces panel will appear.
        Select the hero, then click on dispatch to send the hero on his
        way. You can also send the hero from the Overview full report by
        clicking on the quest icon located there. In Poseidon, you can
        also send a hero on a quest by right-clicking on his or her
        hall and clicking the Dispatch Hero button. Or, you can click
        on the Review Goals button and then click the 'Dispatch Hero'
        button next to the name of the Quest.


    Q:  I summoned a hero but he or she has not arrived. Where could
        the hero be?

    A:  It takes a few months for the hero to travel to your city. If
        it has been longer than that and the hero still has not arrived,
        make sure that the Hero's Hall has road access and is not
        blocked off or obstructed in any way. For example: one of
        Theseus' Hall's requirements is to be surrounded by City Walls.
        Make sure you have a Gatehouse in the Wall so that Theseus may
        get to his Hall.

    Q:  I right-clicked on a Sanctuary and prayed to a god, but the deity
        has not answered me. Why not?

    A:  First, make sure that god's Sanctuary is finished and fully
        staffed. Second, gods will only help so often; check the Mythology
        Full Report to see if the god is ready to help you. Finally, make
        sure the god can help you. For example, Demeter cannot give you
        food if you do not have enough available space in Granaries.


    Q:  Can I kill monsters without heroes?

    A:  Yes, but it takes some time and a lot of hoplites, horsemen,
        spearmen, or chariots. Rabble, archers, and Towers cannot
        injure monsters.


    Q:  Sanctuary or Pyramid construction has not started or has stopped.
        What could be wrong?

    A:  Here are some things to remember when working on construction
        projects:

        - Make sure there are staffed Artisan Guilds and that artisans
          from the guilds can walk from the Guilds to the project site.
          If Artisan Guilds are partially staffed, construction will
          take longer.

        - Wood, marble, black marble, sculpture and orichalc are used in
          the construction of Sanctuaries and Pyramids. Right-click on
          the construction site to see the specific amounts and types of
          materials needed. If one of these is not in the city, it may
          halt construction. For example, the Sanctuary altar, which uses
          marble, will not be built until all of the sculptures have been
          placed.

        - Stockpiling any of the needed goods will prevent construction.
          To see if you are stockpiling a good, click the Distribution
          Tab. Goods that appear in yellow type are being stockpiled. To
          turn off stockpiling, simply click on the name of the good.

        - Stored goods must have a road connecting them to the construction
          site or they will not be delivered. In addition, the road
          connection to a Pyramid must be to the small, wooden platform
          that abuts the edge of the Pyramid.

        - Resources may become unavailable when a supply decreases or when
          a diplomatic change stops trade. When the resource becomes
          available again, make sure the goods are set to import.
          Construction will resume when the goods arrive.

        - If more than one Sanctuary and/or Pyramid are being constructed
          at the same time, artisans may not work on the particular
          project that you desire. Artisans work on projects in the order
          that they see fit. Make sure that the artisans have the
          materials that they need to complete all of the projects, and
          all the projects will eventually be completed.

        - Poseidon allows you to halt construction of a Sanctuary or
          Pyramid. Right-click on a Sanctuary or Pyramid and click the
          'Halt Construction' button. When you are ready for construction
          to resume on a particular Sanctuary or Pyramid, right-click it
          and click the 'Resume Construction' button.

        - Materials are typically delivered in loads of four (except for
          sculptures which are delivered individually). For example, if
          the project needs four slabs of marble, and three are available
          at one Storehouse and two are at another, marble will not be
          sent. At least four slabs of marble must be stored in a
          single Storehouse for the marble to be delivered. You may
          want to consolidate building materials in a particular
          Storehouse or two by using the Storehouse's 'empty' and 'get'
          orders.


    Q:  Why do deliverymen go right by my Sanctuary or Pyramid with goods
        that those buildings need?

    A:  Materials may only be delivered to a construction site by a
        Storehouse deliveryman. Deliverymen from the city's industries
        never bring goods directly to a construction site. So, if you
        have a Sanctuary between a Masonry Shop and a Storehouse, you
        may see needed marble go right by the Sanctuary to the
        Storehouse before being delivered to the Sanctuary.


    Q:  When I delete a Pyramid my game freezes up for several seconds,
        sometimes several minutes.

    A:  On some systems, deleting a Pyramid causes the game to pause
        for a while. Be patient, and the game will soon resume.


    Q:  When I delete and then undo the deletion of a Pyramid it causes
        the Pyramid's graphics to become corrupt.

    A:  It's best not to delete and then undo the deletion of a Pyramid.
        If you do delete a Pyramid and want to rebuild it, your best course
        of action is to place the foundation and build it again from scratch.


    Q:  When I delete and then undo the deletion of a Pyramid it allows
        the Pyramid to be built more than once.

    A:  It's best to not delete/undo a Pyramid. Building multiple versions
        of the same Pyramid can cause serious game problems, possibly even
        a crash. To avoid problems, do not build more than one of the
        same Pyramid.


    Q:  My pyramid graphics became corrupted after a landslide. Is there a
        way to fix this?

    A:  This is a rare issue that does not affect gameplay. Simply rotate
        the map and the graphics will return to normal.


    Q:  Why can't I place any cattle?

    A:  First, make sure that you have enough Corrals in your city. Each
        corral can support a maximum of eight cattle. If you do need to
        build a new Corral to increase your herd, you will need to wait
        for the new Corral to hire some employees before placing more
        cattle (of course, make sure that you are placing them on meadow).

        If you should be able to place more cattle (e.g., you have two
        Corrals but only ten cattle) but can't, save the game and then
        load it again to resolve the problem.

        Cattle that are placed while the game is paused will not appear
        until play is resumed.


    Q:  Why are my goats/sheep/cattle disappearing or dwindling away?

    A:  Every few months, priests from a Sanctuary will use goats or sheep
        for sacrifice to the gods. If the herds are large enough, natural
        reproduction of the animals will replace any sacrificed animals.
        New goats/sheep/cattle should be placed if herd size gets low.


    Q:  The number of Commemorative Monuments listed on the Aesthetics Tab
        is inaccurate (very high or even negative).

    A:  This sometimes happens if you delete and then undo the deletion
        of a Commemorative Monument. It does not affect gameplay in any
        way.


    Q:  One (or more) of the fishing points has two graphics.

    A:  This sometimes happens when the map is rotated. It does not affect
        gameplay in any way.


    Q:  In a user-made adventure, the game goes into 'Open Play (no episode
        goals)' when proceeding to the next episode.

    A:  Copy the .pak file from the custom adventure folder to the main
        Adventures folder and reload the save game prior to proceeding to
        the next episode. This allows the adventure to progress properly.


    Q:  Downloaded user-made adventures are not appearing in the Custom
        Adventures screen.

    A:  This is specific to adventures created in Poseidon. The adventure
        creator needs to include the .set file, which goes in the custom
        adventure folder along with the .pak file. Remember to copy the .pak
        file to the main Adventures folder (to avoid the problem mentioned
        immediately above).


    Q:  I keep receiving an "Area Cut Off From World" message, and my city
        buildings are being destroyed. Why is this happening?

    A:  When a city's entry and exit points are separated by water, and the
        connecting water crossings are removed, the city will begin
        collapsing until the connection is restored. This is a map design
        issue. When designing maps in the editor, keep the entry and exit
        points on the same land mass, making sure that the points are not
        separated by water or any other impassable terrain. Otherwise, the
        player's city may be destroyed if a connection between the two
        points is interrupted.


    Q:  The patch Readme says "Greek Custom Adventures no longer show up as
        Atlantean Custom Adventures," but when I make a Greek Adventure, it
        shows up in the Poseidon Custom Adventures folder. Why?

    A:  Please disregard the statement. What we really mean is that
        player-created adventures that are supposed to take place in
        Greece (Greek Adventures) no longer behave as Atlantean Adventures
        (with access to Science buildings instead of Culture, etc.).

        Any adventure made with Poseidon's adventure editor - including
        adventures that take place in Greece - are supposed to appear in
        the Poseidon Custom Adventures list. The Zeus Custom Adventures
        list was created so that people with Poseidon can play adventures
        made by people who have only Zeus. The two custom adventure lists
        are just a way for the game to differentiate adventures made with
        different versions of the editor.


    Q:  Sometimes when I select "Save Settings" to save an adventure I've
        been editing, I find it isn't listed when I reload the editor. Where
        did it go? How do I get it back?
    A:  Sometimes the editor will not recognize adventures-in-progress
        unless they have been compiled using "Create Adventure" from the
        File menu. To recover a 'lost' adventure, follow these steps:

        1) Copy any player-made .pak file into the folder of the adventure.
        2) Rename the .pak file the same as the adventure (make sure the
           file is not marked as read-only).
        3) Reload the editor, it should now appear on the list of editable
           adventures.

        To avoid this issue when editing an adventure, make sure to select
        "Create Adventure" before exiting the editor.

                                   Appendices
  ===========================================================================

    Depending who you talk to, "Appendices" will have different meanings.
    Most of us (FAQ Writers) use them more as a "miscellaneous statistics"
    section, which is what I do.  Below, you'll find all kinds of misc.
    information that will surely improve your gameplay, as well as inform
    you of things you may ave never known.

                         Non-Housing Data Model Sheets
  ===========================================================================

    The many attributes of a building or person are determined by the level
    of difficulty you have the game set to.  I've taken the liberty of showing
    everything here, to save you the trouble of looking for it elsewhere.

    There are five difficulty settings to Zeus: Master of Olympus.  They are:

            * Beginner  a.k.a. Very Easy
            * Mortal    a.k.a. Easy
            * Hero      a.k.a. Normal
            * Titan     a.k.a. Hard
            * Olympian  a.k.a. Very Hard

    Below are some charts showing the statistics for each of the five
    difficulty settings in the game.

      NOTE: I have not included any statistics from the expansion pack,
      Poseidon.

  Explaination of Desirability Terms
  Most structures in the game influence the squares surrounding them.  This
  influence is called desirability and can be either negative or positive.
  Desirability is greatest or least in the squares immediately adjacent to the
  structure in question.  This initial desirabilty is shown in the column
  labeled "initial".  Let's take the last sturcture in the above chart, the
  Winery. It's initial desirability is +4.  Every structure placed next to it
  will have it's desirability increased.

  The influence that a structure has on it's neighbors increases, or decreases 
  over distance.  The Winery's influence on squares immediately adjacent
  decrease from +4 to some smaller number at some distance away from the
  winery.  That distamce is called a step and are reflected in the column
  labled step.  In the case of the Winery, the step is 1.  The winery will have
  the greatest influence on the squares next to it. One square, or step, away, 
  that influence will decrease somewhat.  Two squares, or steps, away it will
  decrease even further, etc.              .

  The amount of desirability that will be lost, or gained, over each step is 
  called the step size.  In the case of our winery, the step size is -1. It will
  influence it's neighboring squares as follows:

            Winery - [+4] [+3] [+2] [+1]

  At some point the winery will cease to influence its neighbors.  The distance 
  between that point, and the winery is called the range.  Ranges are shown in 
  the column labled for some reason, range.

                           Housing Data Model Sheets
  ===========================================================================

    As with Pharaoh, Zeus has several levels of housing.  Each type of
    housing requires something extra as you proceed up the "Evolution of
    Housing Ladder."  Below are basic charts to show this.

    Note: As with the Non-Housing charts (above), the statistics will
    vary according to Difficulty Level.

      NOTE: I have not included any statistics from the expansion pack,
      Poseidon.

  ===========================================================================

  How to Cheat.

  To bring up the cheat dialog box, press CTRL+ALT+C.  Then, type in the cheat
  exactly as it appears.  The cheats are case sensitive, and make sure to spell
  everything correctly (pharaoh is a tricky word, we know). Also, some cheats 
  can only be used in certain situations, as noted. We highly recommend
  saving your game before using any cheat codes. There is a slight chance that
  something funky (and unintended) could happen when you use a cheat.

  Cheat code          What does it do?
  Ambrosia            Victory: next month you go to the next episode
  Bowvine and Arrow   Towers shoot cows instead of arrows
  Cheese Puff         Diary workers will dance in cheese suits
  Delian Treasury     Add an extra 1000 Drachmas to your books (up to 15,000 dr)
  Fireballs from Heaven    Click somewhere and a fireball will come from
                           heaven to destroy everything on that tile

    Additional Hotkeys (see Appendix 2 of the manual):
    [              Decrease game speed by 10%
    ]              Increase game speed by 10%
    Ctrl + (1-5)   While a company is selected, set a hot key for the company.
    Alt + (1-5)    Select a company that was previously set using Ctrl - (1-5)

    On Storage building info panels, you can set ALL items to "don't accept" 
    by clicking on the small 'X' button.  Each item can still be adjusted 
    individually after this.

    If you have multiple military companies selected, holding SHIFT down and 
    clicking on a company's standard, or its name on the control panel, will 
    deselect that company. You can add companies to your selection by holding 
    down SHIFT and clicking on the additional company's standards.

    Zeus supports the use of a wheel mouse. The mouse wheel can be used to 
    scroll text or to navigate between the control panel tabs.

    On rare occasions you may find soldiers standing around the Palace, while 
    their standard is on the Palace. The soldiers won't go anywhere, and may 
    appear to be stuck. To send the soldiers home, left click on the soldiers 
    to select them, left click on clear ground to place the standard, muster 
    the company, and then send the company home. The company will now behave 
    normally.

    "DATA LIMIT REACHED"
    Zeus has limits on how many buildings, walkers and walker routes it can 
    handle.  Though these limits are quite high, you might reach them if you 
    build a city of 35,000 or more people.  If you do see this message, your 
    only recourse is to resculpt your city for greater efficiency.  Even 
    higher populations are possible if you build very efficiently.

            -------------------------------------------------------

     How to Determine Your Hardware System Specs for Updating Drivers:
     First, click on My Computer -- Control Panel - System. A window with
     4 tabs along the top will show up. The first tab, or General Tab,
     will list the Operating System, Computer Manufacturer, CPU make/speed,
     and Amount of RAM.

     The second tab, or Device Manager, has a list of all the different
     types of hardware contained inside your computer. The most important
     hardware to get driver and manufacturer information about are the
     CD-ROM(s), Video Card (under "Display Adapters) and Sound Card
     (under "Sound, Video and Game Controllers"). To get specific device
     information, click on the (+) sign in front of the hardware type
     (such as CD-ROM), and list of those types of hardware will appear.
     Next, click on the specific hardware name, and click on the
     "Properties" button at the bottom of the window.

     The "Properties" window will have 3 to 5 tabs along the top, depending
     on the type of hardware. The general tab will list the make/model of
     the hardware. The driver tab will list the driver version currently
     installed and the provider of that driver. For CD-ROMs, the settings
     tab will show the firmware version. These are the main pieces of
     information you'll need to find updated drivers for your hardware.

     When you know the make/model and driver version currently installed
     for a piece of your hardware, then go to our Driver and Firmware
     Resource Page, and search for the manufacturer support sites for the
     specific piece of hardware you're looking to update.

            -------------------------------------------------------

     Problem: Installation wizard setup reaches 100%, but nothing happens
     thereafter and the game is never actually installed.

     Answer: The installation wizard extracts all of the files that your
     computer needs to start the installation process into your Windows
     Temp folder. This folder can accumulate a lot of junk files left
     behind by other programs. If you haven't emptied the Windows temp
     folder in awhile, the clutter can contribute to the failure of the
     install process to initialize. Delete all of the files within the
     Windows temp folder, and then run Scandisk and Disk Defragmenter on
     the hard drive upon which the folder is located (Usually the
     c: drive).

     If the system still hangs after the installation wizard reaches 100%,
     let it sit for 10-15 minutes and the installation process will
     eventually kick in. This is especially true with lower-end systems.

     If the system still hangs, locks up or freezes, and the installation
     process still fails to initialize, make sure you have the latest
     video, audio, and CD-ROM drivers for your system.

            -------------------------------------------------------

     Problem: Zeus stops installing before reaching 100%.

     Answer: There are several reasons why this may happen, all involving
     either a failure to read data from the CD or to write it to your
     hard drive.

     1. Many CD-ROMs, CD-Recorders, and CD-ReWritable drives have flash
     upgrades that address this issue. Check on your drive manufacturer's
     website to see if an update is available.

     NOTE: Please be very careful when flashing your drive's BIOS. Improper
     flashing may render your drive inoperable. Read and follow the
     instructions provided by your drive's manufacturer. These instructions
     are typically on the same page as the driver download and/or are
     included with the downloadable file.

     2. A "move data process" error means that the transfer of information
     from CD to hard drive has encountered either a physical defect and/or
     a smudge that keeps your computer from reading or writing data; this
     is especially likely if the installer chokes on the same file during
     repeated attempts. Check the CD for visible defects and/or smudges,
     and replace it if appropriate.

     3. Run Scan Disk and Disk Defragmenter on your hard drive to make sure
     Zeus isn't installing to a corrupted part of your hard drive.

     4. It's possible that you've run out of disk space on your hard drive.
     Remove any files and programs you no longer use, and try installing
     again.

            -------------------------------------------------------

     Problem: During the installation of Poseidon, after the installation
     reaches 100%, the install hangs on a splash screen and doesn't
     progress.

     Answer: Some CD-ROMs take awhile in between completing the
     installation of the game files and completing the InstallShield
     process. Give it time, and after a few minutes the installation
     will commence as it should.

            -------------------------------------------------------

     Problem: Zeus goes through the loading screens (Teasing Monsters,
     etc.), but then the screen turns black with the mouse still visible
     and music playing in the background.

     Answer: This is most likely solvable through a video driver update,
     especially with ATI brand video cards and graphics chips. If you
     have an ATI video card, go to the manufacturers web page at
     www.ati.com. If you have a name brand system with an ATI video
     chip on the motherboard (such as Dell, Gateway, Compaq etc.),
     go to the support site for your PC manufacturer for
     system-specific driver upgrades.

            -------------------------------------------------------

     Problem: Zeus crashes to the desktop after going through the loading
     screens (Teasing Monsters, etc.)

     Answer: First, delete or rename the "binks" folder in Zeus' root
     directory. Then start Zeus, and eject the Zeus CD while it's going
     through the loading screens (on Full Install only). This is after
     the CD passes the copy protection check, so on a full install there
     is no longer a need for the CD to be in the drive after loading has
     initialized. These steps will make the startup process skip the
     intro movie, and start right at the "Play Zeus" screen.

            -------------------------------------------------------

     Problem: In Windows 2000, the following message appears when Zeus
     is started: "There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk
     into the drive."

     Answer: Zeus needs local administrator access to run under Windows
     2000. Log in with administrator access and start Zeus.

            -------------------------------------------------------

     Problem: Autorun screen displays "Install" button and grays out
     "play" button when game is already installed.

     Answer: Try starting Zeus from an explorer window (by clicking on
     the CD drive the disk is in) or by the start menu
     (Start >Programs > Impressions Games > Zeus). It also may be
     possible that the initial Zeus install was incomplete. In this
     case, you'll need to uninstall Zeus and reinstall it again. Make
     sure to reboot your computer before trying to run the game after
     the installation process is done.

            -------------------------------------------------------

     Problem: Cannot start Zeus

     Answer: You may need to upgrade the driver software or firmware to
     keep your CD/DVD-ROM compatible with new technologies like SecurROM
     and DirectX. Visit your CD/DVD-ROM manufacturer's website to see if
     any updated firmware or updated drivers are available.

     (NOTE: Some CD-ROM drive manufacturers stop supporting their
     products through firmware and driver updates. Older drives that
     can't be updated might be unable to read past the copy protection
     on Zeus. If you have the latest upgrades and you still can't start
     the game, it's possible that your CD-ROM drive is incompatible
     with SecuROM. If this is so, the only solution may be a new CD-ROM
     drive. Consult the back of the Zeus manual for Sierra's NO-RISK
     GUARANTEE (in North America), which ensures 100% refund on Zeus
     if you are not satisfied with it.)

            -------------------------------------------------------

     Problem: Zeus was working fine before with DirectX 7.0/7.0a, but
     stopped working correctly since I upgraded to DirectX 8.0.

     Answer: Make sure you reinstall all of your video, sound, motherboard
     BIOS and CD-ROM drivers. Reinstalling drivers is often necessary
     after upgrading to a newer version of DirectX.

            -------------------------------------------------------

     Problem: Systems using monitoring programs (such as McAfee First
     Aid, Norton Crash Guard, Oil Change, Guard Dog and The Help Spot)
     may experience problems running or starting Zeus.

     Answer: Disable or, if necessary, uninstall the conflicting
     application. Consult the manual of any monitoring program for
     instructions on disabling that program.

            -------------------------------------------------------

     Problem: Cannot start Zeus and I have a Creative Labs CDRW drive.

     Answer: Many Creative CDRW drives ship with the Prassi aBcD CDRW
     software. This software (especially the OEM versions that shipped
     with older Creative CDRW drives) has a known conflict with the
     SecuROM copy protection on the Zeus disk. Uninstalling the Prassi
     aBcD CDRW software should allow the game to run properly.

            -------------------------------------------------------

     General Steps to solve CD-ROM related problems
     The following steps can increase CD-ROM and general system
     performance.

     1. Check the CD-ROM disk for smudges or scratches. Clean the CD
     with a CD-ROM cleaning kit, or gently wipe the silver side of
     the CD-ROM with a soft, lint-free cotton cloth. Do not use paper
     cloth which can scratch the plastic and leave streaks. When you
     clean the CD-ROM, wipe from the center of the disc outward. Do
     not use a circular motion. If the issue continues, clean the
     CD-ROM with a damp cloth or a commercial CD cleaning solution.
     Dry the CD-ROM thoroughly before you insert it into the CD-ROM
     drive.

     2. Clean the CD-ROM drive using a CD-ROM drive cleaning disc.
     CD-ROM drive cleaning discs are available in most computer
     stores.

     3. Make sure that you are using protected mode (32-bit) drivers
     for your CD-ROM drive. To do this:
       Open the Control Panel, and open the System Panel.
       Select the Performance Tab, and then confirm that the File System
       entry is 32-bit.

     If the File System entry says 'Some drives are using MS-DOS
     compatibility', you may be using real mode (16-bit) CD-ROM drivers.
     If this is the case, your computer may not be able to read certain
     files on the CD-ROM. Contact the manufacturer of your CD-ROM drive
     to obtain an updated, protected mode driver for your CD-ROM drive.

     4. Next, try reducing the CD ROM drive caching. To do so:
     Open the Control Panel, and open the System Panel.
     On the Performance tab, click File System.
     On the CD-ROM tab, move the Supplemental Cache Size slider to the
     Small position.
     In the Optimize Access Pattern For box, click No Read-Ahead.
     Click OK, and then click Close.
     When you are prompted to restart your computer, click Yes.

     5. Disable Auto-Insert notification
     NOTE: If you disable Auto-Insert Notification, your programs can no
     longer start automatically when the CD is inserted into you CD-ROM
     drive.
     To disable Auto-Insert Notification:
     Open the Control Panel, and open the System Panel.
     On the Device Manager tab, click the PLUS SIGN (+) next to CDROM to
     expand the branch.
     Click your CD-ROM drive, and then click Properties.
     On the Settings tab, click to clear the Auto Insert Notification
     check box. Re-checking this box will activate it again.
     Click OK, and then click OK again.
     Close Control Panel, and then restart the computer.

     6. Enable Data Sync Transfer
     Open the Control Panel, and open the System Panel.
     Select device manager and double-click CD-ROM.
     Select your CD-ROM drive and click on Properties.
     Click on the Settings tab.
     Click on the box next to Data Sync Transfer so that a check mark
     appears next to it.
     Click ok/close and restart the computer.

     7. Enable/Disable DMA.
     Open the Control Panel, and open the System Panel.
     Select device manager and double-click CD-ROM.
     Select your CD-ROM drive and click on Properties.
     Click on the Settings tab.
     Try checking or un-checking DMA (select the opposite state of whatever
     your computer is using now).
     Click ok/close until the system properties Windows are all closed.
     *Note: Some drives require DMA to be enabled. If your CD-ROM drive has
     problems after disabling DMA, then recheck the DMA option and reboot
     your computer.

     8. Remove Duplicate CD-ROM Drives. Remove any duplicate CD-ROM drives
     being loaded by Windows. To do this:
     Open the Control Panel, and open the System Panel.
     On the Device Manager tab, click View Devices By Type.
     Double-click the CDROM branch to expand it.
     Note the properties for each device listed in the branch. To do this:
     Click a device, and then click Properties.
     Click each tab in the device properties dialog box, and then record the
     device information and settings on a piece of paper Click OK.
     Click OK, and then close Control Panel.

     Restart Windows in Safe mode. To do this, use the appropriate method
     for your version of Microsoft Windows.

     Windows 95
     Restart the computer. When you see the "Starting Windows 95" message,
     press the F8 key, and then select Safe Mode on the Startup menu.

     Windows 98
     Restart your computer, press and hold down the CTRL key when your
     computer completes the Power On Self Test, and then select Safe Mode
     on the Startup menu.

     Windows 2000
     Restart the computer. When you see the "For troubleshooting and advanced
     startup options for Windows 2000, press F8" message, press the F8 key,
     and then select Safe Mode on the Startup menu.

     Windows Me
     Restart the computer. When you see the third DOS screen (the one that
     lists your system specs) , press the F8 key, and then select Safe Mode
     on the Startup menu.

     After Windows starts in Safe mode,
     Open the Control Panel, and open the System Panel.
     On the Device Manager tab, click View Devices By Type.
     Double-click the CD-ROM branch to expand it.
     Verify that there are no changes in the list of devices in the branch.
     If you see a device that is not in the list of devices you noted
     earlier, click the new device, and then click Remove. Repeat this
     step for each device in the branch that is not in the list of devices
     you noted earlier.

     NOTE: If you see new copies of a device that is in the list of devices
     you noted earlier, check the properties of each copy of the device. If
     the properties for the device match the properties you recorded, keep
     the device. If the properties for the device do not match the
     properties you recorded, remove the device.

     When you are done, click OK and restart the computer.

     9. Run ScanDisk and Disk Defragmenter.
     Both programs can be found in your Windows Start Menu under
     Accessories - System Tools. Make sure to run both programs on the
     drive that Zeus is installed on (usually the c: drive). It's a good
     idea to run both of these tools on all of your hard drives
     periodically.

     10. Check the Virtual Memory settings.
     System performance can be improved by setting Virtual Memory to have
     the same Min and Max values, related to your system RAM. This
     prevents Windows from constantly resizing your computer's swap file
     according to moment-by-moment needs, and thus interfering with the
     retrieval of data from the hard drive.

     Windows 95/98
     Open the Control Panel, and open the System Panel.
     Click on the Performance Tab.
     Click on Virtual Memory button.
     Put a check in the "Let me specify my own Virtual Memory settings"
     area.
     Set the minimum amount to the following, depending on how much Ram
     you have in your computer (Usually a bit more than double your
     normal RAM on your system for the minimum, while leaving the maximum
     value undefined):
     1.32 Ram ..........Min 100 Max (undefined).
     2.64 Ram...........Min 150 Max (undefined)
     3.128 Ram.........Min 300 Max (undefined)
     4.196 Ram.........Min 400 Max (undefined) and so on
     Reboot your computer.

     Windows 2000
     Open the Control Panel, and open the System Panel.
     Left click on the "Advanced" tab
     Left click on the "Performance Options..." button to get to the
     "Performance Options" screen
     Left click on the "Change..." button to get to the "Virtual
     Memory" screen.
     Set the minimum and maximum amounts to about the following depending
     on how much RAM you have in your computer (Usually a bit more than
     double your normal RAM on your system, and about 1 ½ to 3 times the
     minimum for the maximum up to 600mb):
     1.32 Ram ..........Min 100 Max 400
     2.64 Ram...........Min 150 Max 450
     3.128 Ram.........Min 300 Max 500
     4.196 Ram.........Min 400 Max 600 and so on (exact amounts shown are
     not necessary).
     Left click on the "Set" button to apply the changes.
     Reboot your computer.

     Windows NT (* Although Zeus will run on NT, it is not supported.)
     Open the Control Panel, and open the System Panel.
     Left click on the "Performance Options..." button to get to the
     "Performance Options" screen
     Left click on the "Change..." button to get to the "Virtual
     Memory" screen.
     Set the minimum and maximum amounts to about the following depending
     on how much RAM you have in your computer (Usually a bit more than
     double your normal RAM on your system, and about 1 ½ to 3 times the
     minimum for the maximum up to 600mb):
     1.32 Ram ..........Min 100 Max 400
     2.64 Ram...........Min 150 Max 450
     3.128 Ram.........Min 300 Max 500
     4.196 Ram.........Min 400 Max 600 and so on (exact amounts shown are
     not necessary).
     Left click on the "Set" button to apply the changes.
     Reboot your computer.

     11. Remove DVD or Digital Audio Software
     Digital Audio Extraction software and/or DVD movie players can affect
     the normal operation of your CD-ROM drive. If you have either
     installed, you may wish to uninstall them. Be sure you have backups
     of these programs so that you can reinstall them in the future.

            -------------------------------------------------------

     Problem: Zeus crashes immediately after starting the program.

     Answer: This is likely due to a system conflict of some sort, usually
     outdated drivers.

            -------------------------------------------------------

     Problem: Zeus crashes after you've been playing the game for awhile.
     Answer: Be sure to exit all programs (except for Explorer & Systray)
     before starting Zeus, defragment your hard drive, and make sure you
     have at least 100Mb of hard-drive space free on your Windows swap
     file drive (usually the C: drive). (To exit other programs,
     simultaneously press the Ctrl, Alt and Delete keys ONCE ONLY. You'll
     see a list of all the programs that are presently running on your
     computer. Select each one except Explorer and Systray, and click End
     Task.) A variety of system-specific problems can also cause Zeus to
     crash or exit to the desktop.

            -------------------------------------------------------

     Problem: Zeus crashes, freezes, or has other problems AND your
     operation system is Windows ME.

     Answer: Certain combinations of Windows ME, new video cards, and
     new motherboards can result in random crashes or lockups. This is
     a somewhat unavoidable effect of using very new hardware with a
     new operating system, because the new Windows ME system, the new
     video card drivers, the new motherboard drivers and BIOS, and
     DirectX 7.0/8.0 are not fully compatible. Fully solving this
     problem depends on updates to Windows ME, or obtaining newer
     drivers from the hardware manufactures. Known workarounds
     include: Using Windows98se instead of Windows ME, turning down
     video Hardware Acceleration, turning sound Hardware
     Acceleration down or off.

            -------------------------------------------------------

     Problem: The game seems to run slowly, or even stops occasionally.

     Answer: There are quite a few reasons why this may happen. Try the
     following:
      - Zeus automatically saves the game at the end of June and
        December. Turn off AutoSave from the game's Options menu
        if desired.
      - Try using a full install of the game. Accessing the CD-ROM
        (especially older models) for files can cause slowdowns.
      - Update CD-ROM drivers to the latest version.
      - Look for general system problems using the General Troubleshooting
        Guide section of this document.
      - Lower your game resolution setting (this can be done within Zeus,
        in the Display Options menu under Options).
      - Turn your music or ambient sounds off (this can be done in the
        Sound Options menu under Options).
      - Defragment your hard drive; this always boosts your computer
        performance. Your Disk Defragmenter can be found in your Windows
        Start Menu under Accessories/System Tool.
      - Do NOT run any other program in the background (except Explorer
        & Systray). If, for example, you run a mail program, the game
        will slow down or freeze every time it checks for new mail. The
        same is true of instant messaging programs like ICQ, AOL, MSN,
        etc... Microsoft's FindFast program can intrude on hard drive
        operation for long periods of time, slowing your system
        considerably.
      - Having an antivirus program in your computer will slow down the
        CPU performance noticeably. Our games are virus-free so do not
        be afraid of disabling scanners when you playing and reactivating
        them afterwards. Consult your antivirus software's manual for
        instructions on activating and deactivating the program.
      - Set the game speed to 100% (this can be done in the Options menu
        under Speed Options).
      - If you run a low end machine, try disabling 3-D sounds, music,
        etc... That will free more CPU power to run the game itself (this
        can be done in the Options menu under Sound Options).
      - To play Zeus in Windowed mode, game performance is improved if
        your desktop color setting is set to High Color (16 bit) rather
        than True Color (32-bit). You can set your desktop color setting
        by selecting Display in your Control Panel (or by right clicking
        on your desktop), selecting the Settings tab and choosing the
        Colors menu.

            -------------------------------------------------------

     Problem: Sounds and/or videos are choppy or garbled.

     Answer: Here is how to troubleshoot sound problems.

     If you did less than a full install, some of your sound is being
     read from the CD. Make sure that you have the latest device drivers
     for your CD-ROM drive. Your sound problems might occur while the CD
     is spinning up to full speed, or your drive might have difficulty
     in accessing the proper tracks. If you have room, try a FULL
     install, which places all sound files on your hard drive.

     - If you did a FULL install, follow the recommendations in our
       General Troubleshooting Guide (abridged version here):
     - Update your sound card drivers. This is especially pertinent if
       you recently upgraded your version of DirectX. For good measure,
       update your video and CD drivers, too (Zeus uses DirectSound,
       which is part of Microsoft's DirectX. Reinstall DirectX, either
       from your Zeus CD or from Microsoft's website. Sound and video
       playback errors could also be a symptom of a general system
       problem, so refer to the General Troubleshooting Guide section of
       this document).
     - Close all programs other than Zeus, Explorer & Systray (especially
       any MP3 players such as Winamp or Realplayer).
     - Verify that you have at least 100 MB of free space on your Windows
       drive for the swap file.
     - Defrag the drive that contains Zeus and your swap file drive
       (probably C:\).
     - If none of that works for you, go into the game's Options/Sound
       menu and turn off either Music or City Sounds, or both. There have
       been reports of sound cards that cannot process both .wav and
       .MP3 files simultaneously; disabling city sounds may improve
       sound stability.

     Another tactic to try is to go to your
     Control Panel > Display > Settings, then click the Advanced button.
     Click the Performance tab, click on the Graphics button, and turn
     Hardware Acceleration down a notch or two.

     Is your hard drive is being accessed for no apparent reason when
     your sound goes flaky? That's Windows, resizing the swap file. You
     can avoid it by setting a minimum size for your swap file. If you
     have the disk space, define a swap file that's double your physical
     memory (that is, if you have 64 MB of RAM, define a 128 MB minimum
     swap file). Leave the maximum size undefined (don't fiddle with your
     virtual memory settings unless you're fairly comfortable playing
     with system settings).
     Open the Control Panel, and open the System Panel.
     Click on the Performance Tab.
     Click on Virtual Memory button.
     Put a check in the "Let me specify my own Virtual Memory settings"
     area.

     If you experience sound stuttering or skipping, mostly when a god
     is appearing or speaking, try the following to minimize the
     problem: Make sure you have up-to-date drivers, and that you exit
     out of all programs before starting Zeus. If the problem persists,
     go to your root Zeus directory, and open Zeus.ini in a text
     editor. Add the following after the 'CPU=' line: "SoundFrags=48".
     This number may be increased up to 96 in order to improve sound
     performance. We suggest increasing it in increments of 16.

            -------------------------------------------------------

     Problem: Some computers using SoundBlaster PCI64, PCI128, SBLive!,
     Ensoniq or Yamaha sound cards may experience problems running Zeus.
     This includes sound problems and intermittent crashes.

     Answer: Disabling 3D sound avoids this problem. While playing Zeus,
     select "Sound Settings" from the Options menu and turn off 3D
     sounds. To solve the problem and run 3D sounds properly, you must
     have the latest sound card drivers. Visit your sound card
     manufacturer's web site for more information.
      - http://www.CreativeLabs.com (for SoundBlaster sound cards)
      - http://www.Ensoniq.com

            -------------------------------------------------------

     Problem: Why is Zeus playing the low-resolution intro video rather
     than the high-resolution video?

     Answer: Try the following:
     The high-resolution video requires a system that is faster than
     266 MHz to play well. The Zeus installer determines your system
     speed and installs the video that is appropriate to your system.
     If you want Zeus to use the higher resolution video, use a text
     editing program to edit the Zeus.ini CPU line to say "CPU=266".

            -------------------------------------------------------

     Problem: The video is playing poorly or slowly.

     Answer: Try the following:
     For the high-resolution video, you need a system that is faster
     than 266 MHz for the video to play well. If your system is near
     the cut off, doesn't have a lot of RAM, or has a non-Intel
     processor (Cyrix for example), then it may not be powerful enough
     to play the high resolution videos even if you have clock speed
     greater than 266Mhz. If you want Zeus to use the lower resolution
     video, edit your Zeus.ini CPU line to say "CPU=133".

            -------------------------------------------------------

     Problem: Why is Zeus running slower now after upgrading my video
     card to AGP?

     Answer: Many motherboard manufacturers have BIOS upgrades for
     their motherboards which address certain issues they seem to be
     having with Windows 98. Check your motherboard manufacturer's
     website for upgrades for BIOS, AGP, and any other relevant
     areas. Be sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions very
     carefully when you update your BIOS. Always remember to check with
     your video card manufacturer's website for the latest drivers.
     After updating your video drivers reinstall the DirectX and reboot
     (Version 7.0 is available in the root directory of the Zeus disk.
     Version 8.0 is available Microsoft's DirectX download site:
     http://www.microsoft.com/directx.)

            -------------------------------------------------------

     Problem: Recent Logitech wheel mouse drivers may prevent use of
     the mouse wheel.

     Answer: Logitech has a registry file available for download that
     allows gamers to use a Logitech wheel/roller mouse. Visit
     http://www.logitech.com/cf/support/mousefiles_pc.cfm for more
     information.

            -------------------------------------------------------

     Problem: Using animated mouse cursors can create cursor anomalies
     in Zeus.

     Answer: If you encounter problems like a flickering cursor or a
     block of graphical artifacts surrounding your cursor, restore your
     Windows mouse cursor to its default settings. Select Mouse in your
     Control Panel, select the Pointers tab and click the Use Default
     button.

            -------------------------------------------------------

     Problem: Cannot control the mouse while playing Zeus.

     Answer: Lack of mouse control is caused by having outdated mouse
     or video card drivers. It can also be caused by a faulty DirectX
     installation. The solution is to reinstall DirectX (Either from
     the root of the Zeus disk (v7.0), or on Microsoft's website at
     http://www.microsoft.com/directx/) and make sure you have the
     latest mouse and video card drivers.

            -------------------------------------------------------

     Problem: Cannot control the mouse while playing Zeus, and all
     drivers and DirectX are up to date.

     Answer: Lack of mouse control is caused by having outdated
     mouse or video card drivers. In this case, the most recent
     drivers from the hardware manufacturers are not yet compliant
     with DirectX 7 standards. The most notable example is systems
     with the Diamond Viper II Z200 video card. A reliable workaround
     for this is to turn down video Hardware Acceleration a notch or
     two.
     Open the Control Panel, and open the System Panel. On the
     Performance tab, click Graphics.
     In the Advanced Graphic Settings use slider to lower Hardware
     Acceleration.
     Click OK.
     Click OK, and then close Control Panel.

            -------------------------------------------------------

     Zeus was tested and proven to work on a wide variety of computer
     hardware and configurations. Many different types of errors can
     occur with Windows products, ranging from Windows errors (General
     Protection Faults and Illegal Operations) to product-specific
     errors/lockups with or without error messages (crashing, sound
     stuttering, choppy gameplay). The tips outlined below will
     resolve most of these issues:

     1) Run Scandisk to check your drive for errors. Defragment your
     drives that contain Windows and Zeus. ScanDisk and Disk Defragmenter
     can be found in your Windows Start Menu under Accessories/System
     Tool.

     2) Update device drivers that are appropriate for whatever
     problems you are having (for example, if sounds are choppy,
     update sound card drivers). Get the current mouse, sound card,
     video card, or CD-ROM drivers from the device manufacturers.
     Also, check your motherboard manufacturer's website to see if
     there are any updates available (as Windows 98 & AGP issues are
     common and solved via motherboard BIOS and driver updates).

     3) Confirm that you are running DirectX 7.0 or higher. Try
     reinstalling DirectX (7.0 is available on the Zeus CD and
     8.0 is available from Microsoft's website).

     On the Zeus CD is a folder called DirectX. DirectX needs to be
     installed correctly as it helps to ensure all the hardware in
     your machine can "see" the software. To open, do the following:
     Click the Windows Start button and select Run
     In the field provided, type in the letter for your CD-ROM drive,
     followed by :\ (for example, D:\)
     Now, click Browse
     Open the DirectX folder by double clicking on it and run DXSetup.
     This will reinstall DirectX. After it has been reinstalled (from
     the Windows desktop):
     Double click on My Computer
     Double click on your hard drive
     Now, double click on Program Files
     Open up the DirectX folder by double-clicking on it, then open
     the Setup folder
     If you have DXDiag, run it. If not, run "DXSETUP"
     Go through all the test screens and make sure all drivers and
     devices are certified. If any are missing or are not certified,
     contact the manufacturer or vendor of the missing component (video
     card, sound card) and ask them to send you the latest DirectX
     compatible drivers (relevant to the missing component). They are
     free of charge.
     The latest version of DirectX (as of December 1, 2000 - DirectX
     8.0) is available from the Microsoft Website:
     http://www.microsoft.com/directx.


     If you do not have Internet access it is also available directly
     from Microsoft, or on the CDs that come with many of the monthly
     PC magazines.

     DirectX Diagnostic Tool / Update Drivers
     a) Make sure all drivers on the computer are DirectX compatible.
     To do this:
     Click on the Start button, go to Find, and select Files and
     Folders. In the NAMED dialogue box, type "dxdiag.exe". Within the
     LOOK IN dialogue box, ensure that the [C:] drive is selected and
     then click the FIND NOW button. After the file is found,
     double-click on the file name ("dxdiag.exe") displayed in the
     larger box that appears below. This should bring up a DirectX
     Diagnostic Tool Window. Click on each of the Display and Sound
     tabs and make sure all listed drivers are listed as Certified.
     This will be shown under the Drivers section on the upper
     right-hand side of each tab. Also, performance tests can be run
     on the drivers from the Display and Sound tabs. If any drivers
     are not certified or if there are any problems running the tests,
     contact the computer manufacturer to update the drivers.

     b) Regardless of the results, it may be beneficial to update the
     video and sound card drivers. The hardware manufacturer may have
     released newer drivers that improve performance and compatibility.
     In some cases, the actual install of the drivers may suffer from
     some form of corruption. To update the drivers, first, go to the
     system property window by right-clicking on the My Computer icon.
     Click on Properties, click on the Device Manager tab and click on
     the "+" symbol in front of display adapters (the video card should
     drop down) and the "+" symbol in front of sound, video and game
     controllers (the soundcard should drop down). After writing down
     the type and model of the card(s), contact the system vendor for
     recommendations as to where to go to obtain drivers for the
     card(s). Another option is to go to the card manufacturers'
     websites. To try to find their sites, use the following sites that
     have links to most card manufacturers' web sites:

     Next, go to the Drivers section of each of your card manufacturers'
     web sites. Then, download the most up-to-date drivers for your
     cards. Note: It is still a good idea to verify with the system
     vendor that the drivers you are trying to obtain are the best for
     the system. Follow the manufacturer's instructions to install the
     new drivers.

     4) Running other programs in the background while playing Zeus can
     frequently cause crashes. Close all other programs and TSR's other
     than Explorer and Systray. You may even want to reboot the system
     with a boot disk to eliminate memory-resident programs that may
     cause problems and reinstall the product.
     You can also edit your System configuration startup to make sure
     nothing extra is started on system boot.
      a. In the Start Menu, select Run.
      b. Type in 'msconfig' and run it.
      c. On the System Configuration Utility, select the Startup Tab.
      d. Uncheck everything except for (if present) ScanRegistry and
         SystemTray. You can return to your old settings later if you
         want by returning to this interface.
      e. Select OK and reboot your computer.
      f. Start Zeus after reboot.

     5) If you just installed new hardware, then the new hardware
     drivers are probably the problem. Reinstall DirectX, then make
     sure the drivers are up to date.

     6) Scan your system for viruses using current virus definition
     files (available from your Virus scanning software vendor.)

     7) File corruption is a common cause of game problems. To avoid it,
     use the following process to ensure a clean install:
      a) Uninstall any previous installation of Zeus from the hard drive.
         Use the Uninstall option accessed via the Start Menu path:
         Programs\Impressions Games\Zeus\Uninstall Zeus.
      b) Check for errors on the hard drive. From the Start Menu,
         choose Run, type in SCANDISK and press (Enter). Fix any errors
         that are found.
      c) Make sure that there is enough hard drive space (at least 100Mb
         of free space on your Windows drive for a swap file).
         Double-click on My Computer and right-click on the drive on
         which you're installing Zeus. Click on Properties and
         note the MB value for Free Space. If your hard drive is
         compressed with a program like DriveSpace, the listed available
         space will need to be approximately double the requirement
         stated in the Sierra product documentation. Compression
         techniques will not have much effect on many of the installed
         files.
      d) Reboot the system with your boot disk to eliminate
         memory-resident programs that may cause problems and reinstall
         the product.

     8) Check CD ROM cache size. When Windows '95 installs, it can
     incorrectly determine the speed of your CD ROM drive and allot
     an improper memory buffer for it. From the Start Menu:
     Go to Settings and then Control Panel.
     Choose System icon -> Performance tab. Click the File System
     button and then select the CD-ROM tab.
     Make sure that the Optimize Access Pattern For option is set
     properly for your drive.
     When done, click Apply, then OK and then Close.
     Restart your system
     If this doesn't help, try changing the Optimize Access Pattern
     For setting to No Read Ahead.

            -------------------------------------------------------

     Steps for users with Gateway 2000 systems
     1. Update your sound and video drivers. Consult
     http://www.gateway.com/support/index.shtml or visit the website
     of the hardware manufacturer.
     *NOTE* Users with the Creative PCI64 sound cards should download
     the latest PCI64 drivers from Creative Labs Support. See
     http://www.creative.com/support/files/download.asp

     2. Uninstall the program called "the Help spot!"
     The application called the Help Spot! may cause CD read problems
     and you will need to uninstall the software to correct this.
     - Open My Computer
     - Open Control Panel
     - Click Add/Remove Programs
     - Select the Help Spot! software and choose Uninstall
     - When prompted to uninstall the Trial Version of Oil Change,
     choose "Yes".

     3. If you have the Creative PCI64 sound card, and have downloaded
     the latest drivers from Creative Labs, disable the Gameport/Joystick.
     To disable the Gameport/Joystick
     - Right Click on My Computer
     - Select Properties
     - Click on Device Manager Tab
     - Expand the Sound Video and Game controllers branch
     - Right click Game Port/Joystick and select Properties
     - Mark the checkbox "Disable in Active Profile"
     - Click on OK

            -------------------------------------------------------

     Steps for users with Lite-On CD drives
     The drivers supplied by the manufacturer are incompatible with
     Zeus. Use generic Windows drivers, rather than those provided
     from Lite-On. To change to generic Windows drivers:

     Right click My Computer
     Select Properties
     Select the Device Manager tab
     Click on the '+' next to the CD ROM icon
     Double click on the Lite-On drive
     Select the Drive tab
     Click on the Update Drive button
     Click the Next button
     Select the "Display a list of all drivers..." radio button
     Click the Next button
     Select the "Show all hardware" radio button
     Select "(Standard CD-Rom Device)"
     Select "(CD-Rom drive)"
     Click the Next button, and finish up the wizard

            -------------------------------------------------------

     On-Line Resources for Updating Drivers and Firmware
     The following section is a list of useful driver and firmware
     sites on the web where users can search for updates specific to
     their hardware. All links provided point users to
     manufacturer-supported sites, where users can find official
     manufacturer driver and firmware updates. Users, especially
     inexperienced ones, should carefully read through the
     download/installation instructions provided on each site and
     follow the upgrading procedures given for each driver and firmware
     download. All driver and firmware updates are done at the risk of
     the user. Contact the tech support people on each hardware
     manufacturer's site for help with installation procedure, specific
     driver information, or any general questions you may have
     regarding driver and firmware upgrades.

     1) http://www.driverhq.com/main_home.html is an excellent all
        purpose driver site for everything from video and sound cards
        to CD-ROM and BIOS updates. It is also a great place to start
        for people who don't know much about drivers or how to install
        them, as the site contains step-by-step instructions and
        general information pages that explain things well to the
        inexperienced user. The site has a very large database, and will
        direct users to the official support pages of each hardware
        manufacturer, where drivers specific to that hardware can be
        found.
     2) http://www.windrivers.com is another great all-purpose driver
        resource page. Here, users can search for drivers based on
        category of hardware and manufacturer. There is also quite a
        few great technical resources that help the user figure out
        how to find hardware/driver information, explanations of what
        specific Windows error messages mean, a page devoted to
        explaining how Virtual Memory works and how best to configure
        it on your system, and many more useful technical information.
     3) http://www.creative.com/support/files/download.asp is the
        official driver site for all Creative brand products, such as
        the Soundblaster line of sound cards. Updated drivers for
        certain Soundblaster cards are necessary to run Zeus properly.
        Drivers are operating system and model specific.
     4) http://www.ahead.de/en/firmware.htm is a firmware page for
        CD-R/CD-RW drives, and is an excellent resource for finding
        official, manufacturer supported firmware upgrades for
        CD-R/CD-RW drives. All links on the site are to official
        manufacturer support/download web pages and ftp sites.
        Inexperienced and experienced users alike should take great
        care to read the download/install instructions for each firmware
        upgrade, and SHOULD NOT upgrade the firmware unless they're
        completely confident of the upgrade procedures. As the site's
        disclaimer suggests, all firmware updates are done at the user's
        own risk. Bad flashing from mishandled or misused firmware
        upgrades can permanently damage a drive, so be very careful to
        follow the download/install procedures which are usually
        directly available from the download site, or are contained in
        a .text file that accompanies the download.
