Jim Naughton has written a set of campaign rules for DBA
about the last stage of the Roman Republic. In it, each player will represent a Praetor, the second rank of Roman senior magistrates, and the lowest rank empowered with Imperium, the power to command Roman armies and exercise governorship of a Roman province. Eventually some praetors will advance to the rank of consul, and occasionally dictator. Ultimately the goal is to amass sufficient prestige to stand unchallenged as First Man in Rome.
