This FAQ/guide is based on the United Kingdom release of Praetorians, patched to v1.04. It contains comments and strategies based on other versions. I am not aware of any differences between versions released in different countries. Parts of the FAQ will be appropriate to demo versions, although I believe certain balancing changes occurred between the demo and release version, so use with caution. Praetorians was one of those games that tried to break out of an established real time strategy formula (resource gathering - production - battle), was received quite favourably by many that played it, but ultimately sunk without trace soon after it was released - particularly in the English speaking world.

Praetorians is a relatively easy game to start playing but includes many tough missions likely to send players looking for a walkthrough or hints. It also has scope for various different strategies, not all of which are immediately apparent. Prima have published an official strategy guide - it has not been used directly in the creation of this document. Praetorians is not well documented in English on the internet, with only one fan-site of note, and only one regularly used English forum. The Eidos forum contains a wealth of strategies and mission tips, which I have edited down and integrated into this guide. This guide also draws on material originally written in Spanish or German.

This document is aimed at newer players, not multiplayer veterans. Both multiplayer and singleplayer strategies have been included, but this text is biased towards singleplayer, specifically the campaign. This reflects my personal experience of the game, the overall level of forum discussion, and what I think is needed most in a guide such as this. This FAQ was awarded the title "FAQ of the Month" for August 2003 by GameFAQs. Cool.
