Augustus Caesar, born September 23rd, 63 BC, was the founder of the Roman Empire and its first emperor (following the death of Julius Caesar). Born Gaius Octavius, he acquired power after he was named in Caesar's will as an adopted son and sole heir. After forming the Second Triumvirate with Mark Antony and Marcus Lepidus, he was able to overcome his great-uncle's assassins. From there, the rulers divided Rome into three sections and ruled as military dictators. The Triumvirate was eventually torn apart due to overambitious leaders- Lepidus was sent into exile and stripped of his position, and Antony would commit suicide following his defeat in the Battle of Actium.
After the fall of the Second Triumvirate, Augustus would make a series of improvements to the political structure of Rome, under the premise of a Republic, in order to ensure his autocratic rule as a military dictator. Under Augustus' rule Rome would enter the Pax Romana, although they had minor internal conflict they were free from the large-scale affairs in the world around them. Augustus would die on August 19th, 14 AD. Here at CC, to celebrate his life and my pun-making skills, we will use several Rome maps in this challenge: Imperium Romanum, Poison Rome, Battle of Actium, and Colosseum. To represent the strife preceding Augustus' rise to power, we will be using Assassin and Terminator settings.
