Athens was a powerful city-state during the classical period of Greece. A center for the arts, learning and philosophy, home of Plato’s Academy and Aristotle’s Lyceum, it is widely referred to as the cradle of Western civilization and the birthplace of democracy, largely because of its cultural and political impact on Europe and in particular the Romans.
Dawn of Man
Welcome Pericles, great statesman of Athens! You led Athens as both a politician and general in a time of great prosperity for the city state, which you then ushered to even greater heights. Under your rule, Athens transformed a league of city-states into a grand Athenian Empire, stretching across the Aegean Sea. But it was to be your efforts in the arts and literature which became the defining point of your rule. During your time Athens became an educational and cultural center in the ancient world, a status which echoed through the ages. Wise statesman and general, your profound influence over Athens is unmatched by any other!
Oh, great leader, the light Athens once emanated has waned. The illustrious shine of the grand city has fallen to ruins, the temples looted and plundered. Your people call out, wishing for a statesman to take the helm and restore Athens to her former glory. Will you answer that call? Will you rise to return Athens to greatness? Will you build a civilization that will stand the test of time?
Introduction: "Welcome to Athens, the greatest city in all of Greece! Please, come, see the magnificence of our city."
Introduction: "Oh, a new empire appears! I am Pericles, first citizen of Athens and proud scholar. Who might you be?"
Defeat: "You have extinguished a light which illuminated the world. I fear the dark age which will follow."
Defeat: "The world will never know a city as great as Athens again. You are a barbarian, undeserving of whatever false title you have claimed for yourself."
