    Senators, Generals, Emperor...

    I'm not going to make a long speech like Senator Plinus did. We all know what I did; I took a bribe from a man known as Orontes Zig, a Parthian agent. I didn't give him anything, he came with his offer, and I took it.

    In the words of the Emperor: "He is only guilty of being greedy and stupid."

    I don't care what you all think about me, or what punishment you see fit for me, all I care is that I never gave the Parthian dogs anything.

      Where's the option to give him a slap on the wrist? Fine him 100 denarius and let him go!
      Surrender? NutZ!

        He doesn't have 100 denarius, that's just the problem...

          My opinion for Plinius applies here. Honorius needs to be exile to learn from and be forgiven for his crimes in time.

              I agree with both the Emperor and Senator Verus, exile is all that Honorius deserves. He is a young man, innocent in the dealings of the backroom diplomacy that pervades the government of Rome. Honorius is only guilty of gullibility in the face of so sinister a force.

              He will not choose so lightly again. Let us give him the chance to learn from his mistakes.

                    Hey, you got a post for a Calvary commander out east, cause I want to get to fight in this war before its over and you won't find a better cavalry commander in the empire. I would mind a recon detachment but I can command other units just as well. You must remember I was the man that taught Falco how to do an operation like "Falco's hero's"

                        The poll is closed.
                        We await Senator's Verus to proclaim that Senator Honorius be exiled.

                          The people of Rome have voted. They declare that Senator Honorius shall hereby be exiled from the city of Rome and be placed under armed guard for the duration of the Parthian War. May all be satisfied with this decision made by the people of Rome. The supporters of Honorius may attend the SPQR's senate in his absence. It is hoped that after the current war with Parthia, Honorius can be forgiven for his crimes and return to the senate.

                          This court is adjourned.

                              It is official!

                              Franzius, The Empire will purchase from you:

                              I) One used cart.
                              II) One mule or donkey, whichever is cheaper.....but must have teeth and young enough to survive long journey.
                              III) One Latin-to-Han dictionary scroll.
                              IV) Supplies for a very long trip, ONLY enough to fill the cart!

                              Itemized receipt is required. Do not add sales tax, the Imperial Accountant knows you have never submitted sales tax collected. Send invoice to SPQR-Honorius Exile Fund(Honorius' confiscated weath).

                              Gaius, escort Honorius to Rome city limits to protect him from stone and manure peltings AFTER kicking the wheels of Franzius' cart, checking the health of Franzius' pack animal and confirming the existence of REAL teeth. Oh, you better check off the items on the receipt and double check that dictionary for authentic language BOTH ways.


                              The last time Franzius oversold:
