    Senators and Citizens of Rome,

    It is with a heavy heart that the Emperor reports the state of health of General Drusus. The Great General is currently in the Capitol, resting at home in his villa, surrounded by the love of his wife and family of whom he has not seen for over one year since his departure to liberate Armenia from Parthia. He is alive and conscious, but his legs are swollen and he is great pain. He is currently under the care of The Emperor's personal physicans, and all possible is being done to save his life.

    General Drusus' loyal troops await for word of his recover, and long to once again see their Great General who had led them to so much glory in Moesia, Germania, Armenia, and Italia. Sadly, The Emperor must inform them that as of yet, there has been no improvement.

    People of Rome, The Emperor request that you all pray to your Gods for the General. Let the Defender of Rome hear your appreciation.

    Let the streets of Rome roar the name Drusus so loud that even Hades dare not take him.

    All Hail Drusus!

    Your understanding of the current events is laughable. Antonius has seen more battle these past months than you have read about in your short life.

    Antonius stood shoulder-to-shoulder with Marcus against Torien and Gaius, and barely escaped the kind of the death that took Marcus, his close friend. Much blood was spilled that day, the day when the People of Rome stood with Antonius and demanded the return of our beloved Caesar.

    The People of Rome stood with Antonius by the thousands. Will they stand by you as you continue to slander this hero?

    Antonius only fled Rome after the Gaius the Guilty declared his intentions to murder Antonius on sight, without proper trial, as previous accused were granted.

    You have much to learn, grasshopper.

    Gaius declared him an outcast because he managed to escape from Rome after Gaius tried to arrest him if he showed up anywhere near Rome he would be executed.

    ...and I fear the weasels may still be closing in….

    ...We, the People of Rome, have seen each other through unimagined hardships and treachery. We have stood in the face crime waves, fires, disease, Republican usurpation and Praetorian tyranny. We have vanquished foes both foreign and domestic!...
    ...Our victory against the rebel Praetorians at the Falco Imperial Penal Facility and on Senate floor proved that we are righteous...

    Additional heads-up for the partial worksheets at the End of the final Gameturn 10 !


    Poisoning and Assassinations will not be allowed anymore !

    WHY?

    Because I feel it wouldn't be fair for players that have been in the game since day 1 and have survived these last 10 turns, to be murdered in the last worksheet without further consequences to the game. This last worksheet -at the end of gameturn 10- will simply be used to determine to determine the grand total results of the various players...
    So, players that want to try to get rid of opponents must do it NOW on this worksheet !
    I hope this is clear...



    Greets,
    FATE

    PS: There WILL be another restriction...but that's something for later

    15th of September 82 A.D.

    At first there doesn’t seem anything odd about the Quadrireme that silently docks on at the harbour of Ostia in the early misty morning. There is too much excited talk on the docks concerning the Battle of Fiumicinius and the release of the Emperor only a few days ago.

    Nobody specifically notices the vessel although it looks to be in a terrible state and urgently needs repair. It is nothing out of the ordinary however, for ever since the outbreak of the civil war, good looking and strong vessels have become an oddity in the harbor. It is has become much too risky lately to send out one’s own ships and crew, therefore mercenary ships and pirates have been hired to bring goods from one harbor of the Empire to the other.

    However the mystery surrounding this military vessel soon becomes apparent when an officer and a handful of soldiers step out to meet the dockofficial. The officer, although clad in a neatly polished uniform, seems to be very weak. He is followed close-by by three of his soldiers seemingly to prevent him from falling. Although he does his best to keep his martial air, it is obvious that he is sick and barely able to stand on his own two feet. Slowly, the delegation manages to approach the harbor official to registrate their presence and the goods they are carrying. The official suspiciously –almost frightened- takes a few steps back when the military come closer. The Dux seems to be in a pitiful state: pale, suffering from a high fever and with strange spots on his face.

    After a heavy deep cough that seems to almost choke him, he presents himself as Agrippa, commander of Legio I Augusta, sent from the province of Aegyptus on the 19th of August by order of the Governor Phillipus Garbo. Although the crossing of the Mare Nostrum usually takes two weeks, it took his two Quadriremes and two Triremes almost 30 days due to sickness among his troops and crew. After another heavy cough that seems to last almost an eternity and from which blood is coughed up, he finally manages to ask to be brought to the Emperor or to General Drusus.

    The harbor official, sensing the dangerous situation he is in, calls upon one of his younger colleagues a little further away to come to his assistance. When he arrives, the elder whispers something in his ear, to which the younger looks up, frightened…

    As the dockofficial orders water to be brought to the dying officer, the younger jumps on his horse and heads to the Port Authorities to report the terrible news…

    Roman Senate

    Senators of Rome!!!

    We have work to do!!! But before we do, some thanks are in order:

    Senators Verus, you have served the Empire well. You risked your life by sneaking into the Palace to contact the Emperor. The Emperor and the people thanks you.

    Senator Honorius, thank you for your work with the trade agreements established with the Han Empire. The food caravans you worked so hard on is now beginning to arrive in Rome in full strength.

    Senator Flavian, thank you for your patriotism. Fools have accused you of treason, even while you have donated much of your great wealth to the war effort against Parthia, and risked your life to serve Rome.

    Senator Antonius, that prison you built is a lot smaller than I expected. Falco would have been pissed. But you have served Rome well, with what little you had. The people adores you, Rome thanks you. Your undercover work will one day inspire from Sicily to Corsica!

    Senator Quintus, what can the Emperor say about you loyalty and devotion other than to decree that from hence forth during the reign of Salinatorius, no more Christians shall be fed to lions in arena sport, nor shall they be excluded from any rights enjoyed by any citizen of Rome.
    I'd actually like to "pause" the game from THIS post !!!

    On another note folks...

    You guys are all running ahead of the game !

    Things are being written and proclaimed without my consent or knowledge.

    This is not so good for the "flow" of the game.

    I know you all want to play further, but in this way I, and the various players, cannot keep up with the main events at hand and it will soon become a chaos !!!

    Some problems and inconsistencies have come up and I need to make some adjustments.

    Please, a little patience would be appreciated !

    Thanks,
    FATE

    2. In Germania Superior
    3. Marching on Rome under the command of General Seutonius - according to Clovis, sister of Cleitus
    4. At the battle of Fiumicinius on the Senatorial side - after having come from Dacia
    5. Now apparently back in Germania Superior the day after the battle.....and apparently with all their troops

    truly....a remarkable legion....if all Roman legions were such...the Romans could march upon the Aztecs if they wished.....

    Hey Radulf !

    Good observation of the Legio X... however, it was not unusual in Roman times for legions to have the same number:

    Here's a list of all the legions in the SPQR game - at the beginning of the game at least !!!

    http://www.armchairgeneral.com/forum...=66481&page=10

    There are indeed two X legions:

    X "Fortis" in Germania Superior

    and

    X "Rufus" of Dacia

    Romans the council has ordered an attack while I oppose this measure I am as much a slave to the will of the council as you are to the will of your senate

    Legion XXVI Parthica in Macedonia
    Legionaries how would it be if you simply could not find the dacian forces. . . for the duration of the conflict(s)? If you do so we will also patrol but there was no battle because we could not find the roman troops it's not our fault if you are all masters at concealment the same applies to the other legions as well

    Legion XXVII Pullus in Bulgaria

    Legion XXIV Claudia in Serbia

    Legion XIII Gemina in Hungary

    Honoured Bardus,

    You may understand out reticence at this time, when still opposing us is the remnant of a Roman legion, who has attacked us once, threatens still and apparently has an ally in the brother of Emperor. You may also understand our reticence at this time when our only route to Armenia takes us through Germania Superior, which is seemingly occupied by a ghost legion whose allegiance is also uncertain - having supported the the empire in Parthia, the rebels at Fiumicinium and now apparently in some personal contact with the Emperor's brother.
