    My general has expressed a wish for a cadre of officers to train troops raised in our provence at the request of Rome. Germanic foot and horse have long been noted for their ferocity and courage, and we offer you the chance to train our own new recruits to heroic endeavors.

    Yours humbly
    Bardus Phocus, First Servant of Armenia and Ally of Rome.

    Since you have taken charge of Rome for the moment. If you serve the interests of the people, you must send these troops! I may be a member of the imperial faction, but I know the emperor is too preoccupied to appeal to. That is why I come to you so that you will keep your promise to help the people no matter the distance.

    11th of September 82 A.D.

    From the headquarters of Germania Inferior, Castra Vetera

    To the Senate and the People of Rome

    With this dispatch I, Tiberius Decimus, second-in-command of Legio VIII Macedon, would like to report the confrontation we have encountered with the Germanic tribe of the Tungrii the day before yesterday.

    After falsly having tried to lure us into a trap, Radulf has sent his horde against us in a cowardly night assault.

    Having fallen upon our outpost at Colonia Ulpia Traiana a few hours before dawn of the 9th , Governor Publicus has unwisely ordered a full-scale counter-attack.
    Without having received any details, numbers nor whereabouts of the enemy forces facing us, he has ordered Legio VIII out of the safety of our reinforced base camp at Castra Vetera in order to engage.

    Although the enemy has been repulsed, it has been a Pyrrhic victory for Roman arms ! As if rejected by our Gods for this foolish tactical move, Publicus has been struck down by the enemy. 1.800 slaughtered barbarians have been counted…

    I hereby urge Rome to send reinforcements at once. After the Battle of Ulpia Traiana, our forces have been severely depleted. Only 2.800 Roman soldiers can be counted on for active duty in Germania Inferior. About 300 wounded, retrieved from the field of battle, are under my care here at our headquarters.

    Please send support in haste, for without, I will not be able to reinforce Roman Law and Order adequatly in Germania !

    Tiberius Decimus
    Temporary governor of Germania Inferior
    Commander of Legio VIII Macedon
    Tiberius, how many soldiers would you request for the defense of the province?
    14th of September 82 A.D.

    From the headquarters of Germania Inferior, Castra Vetera

    To the Senate and the People of Rome,

    Please send me at least 2.000 troops, for I sense that the Germanic tribes from the border are settling in for the kill. Save our province !
    I will send a dispatch to Governor Horatius Tillius of Germania Superior and his Legio X Fortis for assistance ASAP...

    Tiberius Decimus
    Temporary governor of Germania Inferior
    Commander of Legio VIII Macedon
    On the contrary, Brother...

    Judea is more than secure.

    And as you can well see, it is by appeal of one of your 'humble servants' by which the order was given, my brother... do you not find my issue of this order at such a time anything other than fully bent to illicit your response?

    As I have many times shown you & all with eyes & ears... many feign to call you 'friend', but it is now obvious that there are few that truly abide your better interests, they simply bide their time or seek to survive - nothing more.

    I have given your freedom after having preserved your life through all that has befallen you since Torienus & Gaius sought your demise... I go now among our people - with you, or without you. If you see not the wisdom of it, but instead rise above their true embrace of you, you are doomed by your own doing.

    Drusus will answer for his crimes, as will Antonius...

    There is nothing you can do of it - even in my death...

    The Honorable among the People of Rome will not go quietly into their darkness!

    Better you remain seized of the light I have brought you into, my brother...

    For only the Truth & Honorable Roman Justice will preserve you!

    Pass this order by fastest dispatch to Legatus of Legio X 'Fortis' in Germania Superior:


    Move at once with 1/2 your entire Legio - 3/4 of your Cavalry - at all haste & by forced march, if you must, to relief of
    Legio VIII 'Macedon' in Germania Inferior. They stand Victorious, but in dire straits without your reinforcement!

    MOVE!

    MOVE AT ONCE!

    Belay that order. There is only one Emperor here.

    Rome has no intention of attacking a friendly tribe.

    And they you among them...

    Not removed of them!

    So you know, our Fathers Gladius has left my possession not once since your 1st lesson to me...

    Until Today!

    My brother, my first priority is to secure the Empire. There will be a time for this, I promise you. With all the chaos, there is very few people left that I trust. There have been attempts on my life also, this matter is not yet finished. For now, Judea awaits you as there are reports of unrest there. You remain my brother, but are no longer "Guardian of Rome", Gaius and Torienus have no authority here.

    Methinks the Romans need to conduct proper research concerning the whereabout of their own legions. Over the past number of weeks, Legio X has been:

    1. In Parthia, under the command of Quintus Flavius
    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.....

    Antonius, you have many things to answer before Magistrates

    So, to, does Drusus!

    A mere wave of the hand does not erase your guilts...

    Nor even the accusations of them in the peoples eyes!


    As to my designs on the throne...

    If I so desired it, my brother would now be dead!

    My love of my brother has spared him when his death was certain...

    And by my order from a distance as from here to Parthia!

    My brother has nothing to fear if his honor is intact...

    For the Honorable People of Rome seek answers...

    And his leadership demands it!

    Senator Antonius

    People of Rome…, Senators…, Generals…, and foreign representatives….,

    --Senator Antonius stands at the podium in front of a crowd; he is holding a plain burlap sack--

    I, the Senator of the People, Senator Antonius, have returned!

    I have exposed myself to rebels and assassins to deliver one last request in the name of the Roman Empire.

    This is not the first time I have risked my life in the name of Rome and her People, but it may very well be the last. The road we have travelled together has been harsh and unforgiving...,

    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! And we must gather our strength once more, and finalize our triumph by maintaining the release of Caesar to his People!!!

    Our victory against the rebel Praetorians at the Falco Imperial Penal Facility and on Senate floor proved that we are righteous. And despite the loss of precious life, it showed the enemies of Caesar that will stand against them no matter the cost!

    Gaius the Traitor still claims he occupies the position of Captain to the Praetorian Guard. His coup, while unsuccessful, has not fully played out, and we must force the final act of this comic-tragedy. We must protect Caesar, or die trying!

    We also must beware of General Scipius. His intentions towards the throne have been made clear, and we mustn’t be fooled by his benevolent charlatanisms…, if Caesar falls it will complete his scheming.

    Do not waiver in your convictions, resist propaganda and break bones if needs be. We shall no longer accept this affront to The Roman Empire!

    And to you, Senator Torienus, I have not forgotten your deceit. You will be hunted down for your crimes. You may have escaped death at the Falco I.P.F., but it shall not happen again!

    Come with me now, People of Rome; come the Roman Senate!

    We will declare the Praetorian as outlaws. We will pursue and prosecute Gaius!

    We will protect Caesar in the name of Rome!!!
