    But if I have engineers I need no ninjas.

    An engineer, an onager and some poop and I'm set.

    Maybe you should talk to someone in the Senate. I hear that Torienus chap is good people. He could requisition us some decent equipment.

      That Torienus chap is baba-ganoushed! Maybe talk to Franzius, that dude from the Merchant Guild!

          • One of my Gallic horseman, who actually hails from eastern Brittania, has learnt a little latin and has, as is typical of his race, asked a pertinant question of me in a some what impertinant manner...

            • I believe Flogging is the standard punishment. However the morale of the Britons tends to be mercurial at best, maybe save the flogging until after the campaign is complete?

                My quality of 1 means I never bothered to learn how to read latin, never mind any dubious language.

                  • Ave Legatus

                    With the completion of the camp I will send scouts to the North Tower environs at night to determine the ground around it and any traps or other surprises that may be in-situ.

                    I want no ugly surprises when we advance at daylight.

                    What say you Legate?

                        Roughly: are we going to attack the enemy or continue to endure the tedium of waiting and listening to Romans chatter endlessly?

                              • XXIV-I - General Rubinus
                                -180 cavalry veterans from Legio VII Claudia Pia Fideliss (Faithful & Loyal)
                                -50 light cavalry from Gaul middle.


                                I will march in between the two oasis, secure the area if need be, then move down pass the Greek ruins and meet up to the river. I shall remain here and await to reinforce if other legions are seized upon by Parthian forces outside Nisibis.
