    Ditto for me! Great game EVERYONE!

        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.

        Marcus Quintus Glabrio,

        It seems that the finer points of poetry are wasted on you! When a man can open his heart unto the world and bare his soul for such examination as this poet has done; truly, on that day, he earns the title Citizen of Roma.

        And all you can do is spit in his face! For shame! For shame! Plinius doesn't deserve to have his status lowered by sharing the very air of Rome with the likes of you.

        You come to Rome, admittedly blinded by grief, spewing accusation and thinly veiled innuendo about the death of your kinsman. We Citizens of Rome have allowed you your mourning and understood your actions to be those of a man possessed by inner demons of loss and betrayal. But, you go too far. Weeks have passed and yet you still fling your accusations upon any and all who stand still long enough to hear.

        Well, enough. ENOUGH I SAY!
        Provide evidence that I or any other murdered Senator Titus, or GO AWAY!

        And as I know that I have not hurt any man, I prefer that you go away soon!

                  • Emperor, fellow senators, and citizens, although I am very pleased to hear that our enemy is crumbling before us, I have to say that I have been ambushed by two assassins. It seems that will of Gods helped me escape this grave danger. I have my reasons to believe that these assassins were Parthian agents. Therefore I would like to call an investigation to find these assassins and secure the lives of other senators and citizens of Rome.

                    • HMMM. Hope this has got nothing to do with the trial of Plinius and Honorius.

                      But I bet that attempting an assassination would be the last thing anyone on trial who would want to prove his innocence would try to do.

                          I disagree.

                          Many of Rome's criminal figureheads have assassinated key witnesses/experts while under trial. In fact, in the criminal world, this is standard operating procedure to prevent testimony.

                          Perhaps Senator Flavian knows something more than he should of Plinius and Honorius...?

                            Senator Flavian,

                            Did you vote against Senator Plinius in the recent trial? This may be an attempt at revenge too.

                            • No I didn't. I don't think that they are guilty and they have no reason to kill me. On the other hand I think that I know who ordered the assassination, but I don't want to haste with conclusions.

                                I voted against him. I'm sure some of the other Senators and Generals voted against him, but why Senator Flavian?

                                EDIT: Maybe someone else ordered the assasination...
