    What about everybody's favorite Roman General Drusus?

    I think he helped Caesar and Antonius just a bit...
    Indeed, but I didn't dare to besmirch your flawless reputation for incorruptible scruples.

    Hail Drusus!

    Well, "you live by the sword, you die by the sword"

    Nice poem Cody
    The above was written by Lucius Annaeus Seneca about Emperor Claudius , who I've always felt a special connection with (people thought he was stupid too).

    I left out the verse about Britain, because I didn't think we had any related events (I hope I didn't miss something).

    But I dedicate it to all who played SPQR, especially those who lost their characters to the hand of Fate (and sometimes the hand of Caesar and I).

    Antonius cannot die, and if he does, he shall become a God...

    No, that's just all the time I currently have to 'entertain'...and it provides me with excellent propaganda

    With swift foot he could outrun any courser in the land:
    He could the rebel Parthian stun; no Persian might his darts withstand.

    With steady grasp he bent his bow: away they streamed in packs.
    Slight was the wound, yet the Medes show, in rout, their ornamental backs.

    He chained them with a Roman chain, then with Roman rods and axe,
    He disciplined the Ocean main, and took its terror for a tax.

    Mourn for the judge who could provide quick sentences to marvel at!
    Who only listened to one side, who could dispense with even that.

    Where shall another such be found, to sit judge the whole year through?
    Minos the Cretan, underground, must now resign his bench to you.

    You barristers, who have your price, weep, and all small poets weep,
    And weep, your rattlers of the dice whom cogging does in plenty deep.
    Oh no! Did Antonius die...

    There was an earlier attempt for a short funy prequel to be followed by an SPQR II, but real life made Stratego too busy and it had to be shelved for now. We of course are still eagerly waiting..........

    Thank you Emperor! It is good to be back. My brief sabbatical from the Senate has ended and I'm happy to have returned, and to learn that I have not much has occurred in my absence.

It seems as though it more or less is from this thread but thought I'd ask. I'm still somewhat interested...know I kind of jumped in at the end of one of the previous games and not sure I did all that well, but it was fun.

    And very very belated Christmas greetings to you all.
