    Thanks, Tor. I think I can darn near use that entire movie or even the entire trilogy (perhaps even both trilogy) for our analogy.

    Salinatorius: You were the Chosen One''............

    Torienus: Arghhh!!!!!!!

    Salinatorius: It was said that you would destroy evil, not join them!

    Torienus: Arghhh!!!!!!!

    Salinatorius: Bring balance to the Senate, not leave it in darkness!

    Torienus: I HATE YOU!!!!

    Salinatorius: You were my brother, Torienus; I loved you.

    • Christmas Greetings from The Emperor

      People of Rome, by popular requests, The Emperor has Chosen once again to address His beloved People during The Season of Joy and Giving.

      Citizens, Generals, Soldiers, Senators, and Friends of Rome.......some time has passed since We together as An Empire and A People saved Rome from destruction within and without. We have survived rebellion in Our Provinces, War against enemies foolish but powerful and brave enough to challenge Rome, Deceit by those sworn to protect The Very People of Rome, Dishonor by those whom swore to defend Empire and Emperor, Plague that threatened the very Survival of The Roman People.

      We have Survived All those Challenges for We Are Rome.
      We have Prevailed Against ALL Odds for We Are Rome.
      We have Emerged Stronger Than Ever for We Are Rome.

      Our Gift to The World for All Eternity Shall be Our Faith. The Emperor bows to Our Savior, The King of Kings, Our Lord Jesus Christ. People of Other Religions shall receive All Our Blessings as a Sign of Our Faith.

      May All have the Greatest Christmas Ever. As a Gift to All, From now till The End of This Julian Calender Year, The Emperor shall answer ONE QUESTION from those whom choose to ask.

      Merry Christmas to ALL. No one in The Empire shall go hungry, and no child in The Empire shall go without a toy.

      So be IT.

                Dear Emperor

                Roman causeway CCIII is planned to go right through the Tungri settlement of Argf, located XV mille passus north-west of Ventogxixc. Is it possible to have it moved XXXVII actus to the east? If not, we will be forced to sacrifice your engineers in accordance with Article XX.II sub-paragraph III of the Tungrii-Roman Treaty of Friendship and Fermented Fish.

                    O' Brave Skolbinus, Proud King of The Tungrii,

                    You have presented The Empire with a dilemma that is quite perplexing yet solvable.

                    The sacrifice of the Roman Engineers are not acceptable due to the recent shortage of crucifixes and Greek abacus crunchers.

                    The Empire is willing to exploit your proposed route proposal. However it must be pointed at that according to TRT-FFF Amendment XXXIV sub Addendum CMXVI of said Article sub Paragraph, the expenditure of said redirection shall be the burden of The Tungrii. And that is a whole lot of FF.

                      Interestingly, I believe that after several rebellions, war, plague, fire in Rome, and whatnot, the Imperial Treasury ended the game robust.

                            The Game ended with The Empire possessing Robust Economic Outlook and Her Citizens freed from Tyranny.

                            No Roman, No Ally, and No Foe shall ever mistake The Emperor as a Nerd. That Honor shall always be left bestowed upon rebellious Senators and Generals.
