General Paulus was treated with respect, and with his cooperation the Army is now satisfied with its internal security.

    The Emperor has requested General Drusus to immediately return General Paulus to his command.

    All hail Paulus, General and Governor of Syria, SOLDIER OF ROME!

    Rome will fight it's enemies with all troops united under General Drusus.

        • Senate and People of Rome

          I wish to inform you that General Paulus has been returned to the command of Legion IV with all Honor intact.

          I look forward to putting this unfortunate incident behind us and working with General Paulus to defeat the true enemy of Rome, Parthia.

          Hail General Paulus, a Roman of the Romans!

          Hail Caesar!!

          Roma Victa!!!

            Indeed! Well done Stratego!

              • Excerpt from History of Rome

                WHILE THE WORLD SEETHED IN TURMOIL AROUND HIM, PLINIUS IN THE EYE OF THE STORM WORKED ON HIS POETRY,
                DISPLAYING THAT TYPICAL CALM THAT WON HIM HIS FIRST HONORS AS A YOUNG TRIBUNE FIGHTING THE FRISII IN GERMANIA INFERIOR 40 YEARS AGO
                AND THAT CONTINUED TO STAND HIM TO SUCH GOOD USE DURING A LIFETIME DEDICATED TO SERVING ROME.

                IT WAS HIS SUPREME CONFIDENCE THAT, EVEN IF HIS FELLOW ROMANS WOULD NOT SEE IN TIME THAT SUCH A MAN
                WILL NOT AT THE END OF HIS LIFE BECOME A TRAITOR, HISTORY WILL EVENTUALLY ACQUIT HIM.
                THIS PATRICIAN COOL AND GRACE UNDER STRESS MADE PLINIUS THE BYWORD FOR PERFECT COMPOSURE AND CALM.


                IT WAS DURING THIS PERIOD IN PRISON THAT HIS POETIC SKILLS CAME TO THE SAME LEVEL AS HIS RHETORICS,
                WHEN HE HE COMPOSED HIS MOST FAMOUS POEM MOST COMMONLY TRANSLATED FROM LATIN AS 'IF'.
                'IF' WAS ALEGEDLY DEDICATED TO TORIENUS, WHO IN THE PERIOD THAT PLINIUS WAS IN PRISON
                DISPLAYED HIS COURAGE BY SPEAKING OUT ALMOST ALONE FOR CIVIL LIBERTY, WHICH SO DESERVEDLY WOULD EARN TORIENUS HIS SENATORIAL PURPLE.


                "If you can keep your head when all about you
                Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
                If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
                But make allowance for their doubting too,"

                • Ahhh yes -- Words and more words -- all designed by the inconsiderate Senator of Rome to deprive a poor but honorable Executioner of his livelihood.

                    Once again we see plain the motive for the murder of Senator Titus. Death to Plinius! May his death be slow and painful! I wait for the day where his bloated corpse is cast into the Tiber River in disgrace!

                            Franzius and other citizens...,

                            It would do you well to remember that Senator Plinius stands innocent until his guilt has been proven. No good will come from convicting him in the court of public opinion. Let us wait until the poll has closed, and the voting is complete, and then begin the propagandist rhetoric.

                            ... And for the those who offer more than insults to Plinius, hear me now.

                            Threatening the life of any Roman Senator is a punishable crime.

                              • Oh Good and Honored Senator Antonius -

                                For true Justice to prevail, three parts must work in concert - Judge, Jury and Executioner !!

                                The time honored Circle of Justice will only be completed when all three elements have taken part.

                                I, as Executioner, am the last and least of these.

                                Pay no heed to those that cast aspersions against me.

                                My purpose is only to conclude all financial arrangements prior to the arrival of the guilty to my domain -

                                Commerce is the life blood of Rome and can not be denied.
