    In a darkened structure figures gather in the dead of night.

    Centurions, Optios, and troopers alike gathering in anonymity.

    They have heard the call and gathered, as they "meet the Bull"

    The rites are carried in secret, and only the bellowing of the Bull cuts the near silence of the night within the Forified camp of Legio XXIV-II

    Their Commander Quintus Flavius has called the gathering and the sacrifice. For the Hidden God must be appeased if his blessing is to be conferred upon the faithful in the upcoming battle.

    The auguries are good.

    Copy these notices and hand them out eat with them sleep with them put them up on poles, on tent walls, etc.

    All troops and people in the surround are to dig latrines downstream, they are not to drink from the river they must get it in heated bowls and then boil said water, all physicians are to boil their instruments, and wahs their bodies, clothing, facilites and hands with hot water, after you use a latrine make use of the bowls of hot water and soap outside, after you complete a task or handle objects wash your hands, hot water bowls are to replaced with new ones, refuse uneaten of rotten food is to be carted down to the specially dug canyons and then burned

    Corpses are to be burned and camps must be upwind from sewers battlefields, etc.

    Failure to comply will result in flogging if the offense is repeated much more... severe... disiplines will result

    -Publius Andronicus Virian Scaurus

    Do not be burning corpses that can be better used as weapons of terror.

    Crabbius Irritatus, our loyal Director of Romeland Security ( also known as the ministry of Dirty Tricks and Shenanigans) has stated the need of these resources for psycological missile weapons.

    To: Commander Crabbius Irratius

    From: Scaurus

    I have a proposal: We recruit Women (provided they are strong enough and can pass the training) into our ranks. It would vastly increase the strength of our legions and (considerably) bolster (among other things) our troops morale, and any children that result will most likely join or serve the might of rome in some helpful way thus giving us an endless supply of recruits

    Is it so that I do not have the commands of

    XX-IV Antiochus Pacco

    XX-I Lucius Thrax

    XXIV-V Arses

    XXIV-IV Publius "the Scar"

    IV-I Anaeus Maximus

    and that officer Crabbus Irritatus is left in reserve?



    Greets,
    FATE
    I'm so sorry I've been busy with stuff at school (yep I'm a softmour in high school ) lately so its been hard to participate in the campaign against Parthia. Can anyone brief me on what is happening with my legion and give me orders to carry out? Thank you!

    Ave Crabbius Irritatus!

    The specification that the corpses be lepers will be challenging as we have so few in the vicinity.

    We have however procured a large store of phosphorus with which to stuff the corpses we will have...

    Wet, bloated and exploding on impact, releasing a shower of Burning Stone....

    Will this give you the shock value desired?
    It is my hope that it is so, as it will also make dealing with those corpses by our enemy's that much more dangerous....

    I asked for Onagers to launch my leper corpses, but no one came foward. As head of Romeland Security, I had to act in the interest of Rome and Emperer Sal.

    The details of how I got there will be another thread, SPQR: The Adventures of Crabbus Irritatus and Romeland Security.

    Besides, I had all those mice and rats to distribute...........................and lots of other stuff to be revealed in the thread, SPQR: The Adventures of Crabbus Irritatus and Romeland Security.

    So he knows how many troops are inside the city...
    Yes and no. Between dragging bodies about, polluting wells, releasing rodents into food supplies, collapsing temple roofs, weakening city walls, compromising horsefeed, and sending messages.................

    I am a bit stretched. And try doing all that from a third rate manger while staying hidden! The native spies report back with strange numeric symbols. How in Jupiter's name am I supposed to know what 45,000 troops amount to? To top it all off, the spies say that they cannot do line addition using Roman numerals!

    No fun ! How about my element of suprise?

    I am surprised already.
