Scipii Gameplay


The Scipii start out as a wealthy Roman family, but with a few problems. They're not as respected as the other Roman factions and therefore don't start out with much. However, tasked with eliminating the Carthaginians, they have a vast goal that would elevate them into the hearts of all Romans.
