  • Great Sal, you are indeed a wonderful and benevolent ruler. You make your subjects proud and the Heralds will sing your praises for a thousand years!

        It was foreseen. During Senato Honorius' exile and expedition to the Han Empire, plans were set into place to send food to the Roman Legions in the East via the Silk Road. The food should already be there. Take it up with the contracted freight fowarder, Fanzius of Noricum.

        The Emperor made sure to included many coveted culinary delights, such as Thousand Years Old Eggs, Bittermelons, Pressed Ducks, and Noodles.

            The contract clearly stated payment within 90 days upon presentation in triplicate of receipt of goods delivered intact, uncompromised, and in full accounting. Also stated clearly in the contract is the timely delivery of foodstuffs and perishables.

            The Emperor is especially concerned about the Fermented Fish Curds. Also the Thousand Years Old Eggs are best served fresh, not at One Thousand and One Years!

            • Intact ?? -- Outrageous !!! - We have never yet delivered anything Intact !! We have no intention of starting now on a path toward such a foolish and lofty goal!

              As far as uncompromising is concerned - have we not - each and every one of us - been compromised in one manner or another ? Would anyone hold us to such a standard ?? I say -- Never !

              I'll have to admit -- some of our Teamsters got a bit hungry on this long and arduous trek -- most of the foodstuffs and perishables were consumed in route.

              The good news is -- we arrived with 87 toilet seats -- 677 snow shoes and many cases of winter parkas -- those should come in very handy if the temperature ever falls below 95 degrees F. Additionally, we have 73 cases of hammer heads - 46 boxes of Ax heads and a number of shovel points -- regrettably, the handles for those were consumed in flames over a period of several cool nights in transit.

              Our invoice -- in triplicate will be submitted for payment in the morning -- your generous offer to pay three times the cost agreed upon is appreciated -- I assume that was your meaning when you asked for a triple invoice -- your generosity is beyond measure and will never be forgotten !

              • Oh -- I meant to mention -- those Thousand Year Old Eggs are really quite tasty - just as you said. They also tend to stick with you for a time -- you can enjoy them again and again - for as long as a week - if you happen to "belch"

                      • New Player--Need Help

                        Salvete mei amici!

                        I am a brand new player and am wondering if someone could outline for me the basics of how SPQR works. I've gone back through all of Gameturn 8 and most of the Offensive Against Parthia threads, and while I kind of have a sketchy idea of what's going on, I could use with quite a bit more elucidation. All I could make out is that everyone loves to make long political speeches, there was a heck of a lot of bloodshed in Rome recently, and that character cheat sheets come in handy.

                        Furthermore, I would appreciate it if the two current rival factions--the Imperial Party and the Senatorial Party--would now make their respective sales pitches to me, outlining their general ideas, ideals, platforms, mission statements, etc., so I can decide which side to choose.....or I could just remain neutral and watch you all kill each other, stepping in to fill the power vacuum at the last moment.....

                        Thank you in advance for your help and for putting up with the ignorance of a newbie senator...

                        Sincerely,
                        The Honorable Senator Quintus Vespillo
