  • I shall tell the tale,
    Of Torienus the just and frail...

    A Roman senator of old with alot of hair,
    Who had the death of his master Plinius to bear...

    In search of justice like an ancient Magnum P.I.,
    He fought against the odds, not afraid to die...

    On the 'Night of the 17th' he finally met his fate,
    With senator Antonius - an unpleasant date...

    Meeting with general Drusus: "He finally got his shave!" Antonius said,
    Out of a sack he pulled Torienus' bloodied head...

      • [size 3]Give me a day
        And all shall be
        Just as FATE say
        Even as Karma go pee

        To the Lamb we go
        In our every heart
        We know the game is no mo
        But with us it is always a part

        Of a time of Rome
        When FATE made it so our
        That it shall always be our home
        Forever in SQPR

        • Meanwhile in Rome...

          ...the successor to Salinatorius, Nero II, is being treated to a well-deserved pedicure after a hefty Bacchanalia the night before...

            Intriguing picture.
            Even some of its figures have a certain resemblance to BoRG

                      • I think the Emperor is in need of some new sandals, Franzius...

                        Perhaps with some of those newfangled Shoalius insoles...

                          Welcome back, Franzius of Noricum. Have you brought real purple robes (not pink) and lions with teeth?

                          • Good Evening Gentlemen ( a rather loose interpretation of the term, of course) I'm glad to see the Nucleus of the Forum remains intact and viable LOL. I've missed our conversations and occasional games but it seems that "life" makes many unsolicited demands upon our time <sigh>. I'm hopeful that the coming days will allow for more participation here - on my favorite forum - among good friends on line.

                            • Good to see some ghosts of yore rattling around the old place, while the younger generations are fed both on stinky fish and the tales of our deeds.

                              Indeed we are BoRG and shall not die.
