    • Ave my fellow Tribunes

      Worry not about the requests of Crabbius.

      He Seeks only to make the most effective impact possible upon our enemies.

      Indeed we know that the only way now to get corpses of any kind within the sealed walls of Nisiblis is to send them over Via our Onagers.

      The respected Crabbius Irritatus is a dedicated soldier and servant of Rome, seeking all possible advantage against the our enemies.

      Noble Crabbius!

      Once the North Tower is mine I shall fling within the walls all manner of waste and vile putrescence with which you may persecute your aims!

      • Ave Crabbius Irritatus!

        I bring you the promise of all the bodies I can hurl over the walls to you should the Parthian cavalry attempt to engage us in an attempt to save the City.

        Would you like them flaming or un-flaming?
        The engineers inform me we have a sufficient amount of oil for the task.

            Do not burn the bodies. Pour water down their throats and soak them in tubs for maximum explosive effectiveness when they impact after launch over wall. Commence operation at earliest opportunity and I may be able to instill complete panic here on this side of the wall. Watch for my signals to correct your launch coordinates.

              Message received and understood!

              It is well that we have the Oases at our disposal. I'm sure we shall be able to accomodate you.

              • Quintus Flavius, Commander of the second Cohort of the XXIVth Legion surveys his maps once again, pondering the possibilities.

                He knows that the Parthian cavalry is out there somewhere, waiting...

                Scanning the positions of his brother commanders and their forces he tries to picture the requirements of the enemy to drive the Romans from this place bereft of Victory.

                He gazes to the North Tower, his target in the upcoming attack. The glow of torches wreaths the top where he can see the shadowed figures of watchers, watching his troops and his camp.

                The tribune pictures the assault he will carry out... and wonders when the fates will bring the Parthians.

                A smile, wry and forboding steals across his normally impassive features. HE is looking forward to them coming...

                • The Scar stares at nisibis and a slow terrible smile steals it's way across his ravaged features, first Nisibis then what? Who knows what might happen in the meantime. Imperator Scaurus... The thought was not an unpleasant one

                    Nice to see you both are eager. Maybe this will entice Stratego to get this thing going?

                            I just loved Stratego's response, because his avatar conveys either exasperation or embarassment.

                            it's one of my Favourite avatars in ACG so far
