With the dawn of the new age of exploration, and the opening of land routes to Sanctuary City and Skara Brae, the old imperial city of Rome became strategically less important, and the modern emperors moved their glorious capital to a more powerful location. Now, the seat of Roman imperial authority rests near the eastern coasts of the Great Sea, within a day's sail from the forests that surround Skara. Weakening in its old age, the glory of the Roman Empire has been enfeebled both from within and without, rebellious garrisons breaking out in riot at the slightest excuse, and hungry Gothic hordes beating down the city gates. Even so, the beauty and majesty of the city survive, and its call is powerful to all who will listen.

Ravenna is a historic city in Italy, located southeast of Milan and south of Venice on the Adriatic Sea.  It served as the seat of Roman power near the end of the Western Roman Empire Period, c. 400 AD.

General Zone Strategies:Edit

To be granted audience with the Imperator, Honorius Augustus, have a thief pick the outer door to the capitoline building. You'll need to scan the inventories of the guards near the outer door to identify the guard holding the key to the inner door. Because the atrium colonnade is !violence, you'll have to mage charm or bard mass charm the elite(s) to get the brass key and open the inner doors.  The elite also holds an intricate key, which is the key to the outer doors.

All mobs in Ravenna cannot see invis (seems logical, doesn't it?).  Use this knowledge to your advantage.
