    Since we'll be playing with a Western and Eastern Empire I will need twice as many events as I did in SPQR

    Keep in mind that we'll be playing in the last decennium of the 4th century AD.

    Any problems facing the Empires (religious, social, economic) in between 350 and 450 are welcome...don't make the tasks too easy for the Emperors.



    Thanks,

    Greets,

    Outstanding, and great to see

    Will put my oar in tonight/tomorrow, once I clear the strategic updates for Overland

      • Rome is not usually my cup of tea, per se, but if you have a role for me, and are taking new players, I will volunteer.

            Perfect. Rome shall leave tea to those heathens from the Far East.

            No tea! Learn to enjoy wine flavored with plumbum and served in lead vessels.

                The blood of barbarian children. The blood of barbarian adults are alcoholic.

                      Everybody will have an opportunity to play SPQR II. Either as a full-timer or a side-character later on in the game...this time, we will start with 14 full-time players.
                      What I do need - something that is essential for the succes of the project -is that the full-time players will be actively involved most of the time. Of course this is also something that they can expect from the GM.

                      How many nights have I not stayed up from dusk till dawn the last time? What a 'rush' it was...and I hope it will be so yet again.

                      Be advised that the game could take up to 9 months to play...

                          If it ends up like the Diplomacy game...I'll resign immediately!
                          I don't know what happened there

                          • I just missed the end of SPQR last time around - definitely not going to this time... even if I do have to organize a stand-in for a certain 3-week period early next year
