City Profile: Ostia

City Profile: Ostia -

Today, we kick off a new series of features from Perpetual Entertainment's Gods & Heroes: Rome Rising. In this series, Perpetual will provide readers with information on all five of the major cities that players will have a chance to visit in-game. We start with a city called Ostia.

Ostia is a bustling port city situated on the shores of the Tyrrhenian Sea at the mouth of the Tiber River. Originally established to prevent hostile hordes from using the Tiber to invade Roma, Ostia has become a valuable commercial harbor and thus one of the largest and most important cities in the Republic. Goods from all over the many territories under Roman rule must pass through Ostia Harbor on their way to the markets of Rome, including such vital imports as the grain that feeds the populace and the many goods that fuel the economy. Thus it is most alarming that Ostia Harbor has been all but taken over by the Caedes Gang, a brutal street gang that is brazenly operating right under the local authorities' noses.

Players of Gods & Heroes: Rome Rising™ (G&H) will not only get to help clean up the corruption bred by the Caedes Gang when they visit Ostia, but they will also be able to hire minions, train in new Feats or Skills, and buy all the goods and provisions they might need. As one of the largest cities in the game, Ostia will serve as an important quest hub, as well.
