I finaly got Rise of Rome. I like the way the gazzle king runs as fast as a bigdaddy big momma or the baby. Also I think I understand why the Mirror tower shoots a laser, I think it shoots a laser because it has a mirror inside it ( Duhh ) and it uses the mirror catch suns rays and because the mirror is so strong that the suns ray gets powered up and turns into a laser. Also what does Hero Archamides do???

Archimedes invented that contraption that works by amplifying and redirecting sun rays onto an inflamable matter (like the cloth sails of an enemy vessel...)

Archimedes and his #$%*^@ towers are in a scenario of one of the campaigns. Only thing I remember is that they're on Syracuse. And Sean, you are right. Reflected sun rays with mirrors to set ablaze approaching ships.

As for what Archimedes does, he simply is annoying. He does nothing but follow your units (no attacks, no conversions, no nothing). The problem is you must not kill him so you have to check your army at all time or they'll kill him and you'll lose.

When you see him, let him where he is and do not free him. Keep him for the last thing you must do.

In this scenariio, it is wiser to find the backdoor then trying to sail between Mirror Towers.

That scenario is my favorite. Accualy the best thing to do to keep Archimedes from dieing are....
1. Try to draw the enemy away from Archimedes
2. Attack the fortified town using Legions and ballistas. Use the legions(or Cav) to Protect the ballistas. and keep control over them ( the ballistas) at all time, pointing where and at whom you want to attack.
3. Have your villagers wall in Archimedes in the top left corner of the town. Yes this works, and its kinda' funny too. He will for some reason try to put him self in the line of fire and will follow your troops (or villagers) So just send in some villagers and start wallin' him in. This will allow your legions to move into place w/o accidently killing him.
