2500 years ago, Greek traders and adventurers travelled to southern Italy to settle and develop the area. They called the region Magna Grecia. The development of the area led to an era of rapid cultural and economic growth. Before the arrival of the Greeks, only a few small isolated villages populated the region. The rich soil, navigable rivers, great forests, and bronze and silver mines offered the Greeks enormous development potential. In time, the Greeks built great cities such as Tarantum, Syrakusai, Katane, Locri, and Naxos. There were also numerous small villages, many of which have disappeared or were swallowed whole by the growing cities. They built a dense network of roads to support trade and the prosperous markets in the cities. With success came strong rivalries among the cities, especially as they competed for the attentions of the oracles for the fame they offered.
Each player must successfully settle and develop Magna Grecia. At favorable points, markets are built, villages are developed into cities and interconnected by a road system. Only then may the interior be opened and the Oracle controlled.
