    27th of August, 82 A.D.

    The Roman Empire resides in a state of chaos !

    The Emperor can still count on a large amount of support , but still remains a prisoner of Captain Gaius and his Praetorians in the palace. Although it was assumed that senator Torienus would manage the affairs of the state until the return of General Scipius, after the fateful Night of the 17th nothing has been heard of him. Although Captain Gaius has done his best to prevent anarchy of spreading throughout the city, no one has come forward to take control of the Empire. Most of the politicians are frightened, not willing to take sides in he current cold war that has erupted in Roman politics. The show of force from the mob two weeks ago has shown that it is dangerous to take command.
    The two factions still seem to have each other check and still enjoy considerable popularity although the loss of senator Torienus has deprived the senatorial party of strong leadership. But the Roman patience is quickly running thin. Ever since the start of the civil war, trade and commerce has fallen to a sorrowful level. Grain and other victuals arrive in Rome with much difficulty from the ports and countryside yet, most citizens try to live life as best as possible in these circumstances. All however pray to their God(s) and hope that this political struggle will soon come to an end.

    The arrival of the very popular General Drusus has lifted the spirits of many Romans. They see in him the ideal character to end this misery once and for all…and many, especially the once prosperous traders and merchants, don’t really care HOW it is done. All the people want is to be able to take on their normal daily lives and to breath easily once again…what do they care of high politics? Drusus is their hope…

    Although the victory of the Romans against the Parthians at Nisibis is greeted with many cheers, it’s the disturbing news from the provinces that causes the happiness to subside quickly before it has even started. The governor of Cappodocia is wondering why no other troops have yet arrived to replace the three legions that were ordered out to support the Roman troops in Parthia? One sent to join General Rubinus and two accorded to General Drusus? Although a fairly peaceful province, already trade routes are being hampered by brigands and robbers. In various cities and towns petty criminality is getting out of hand. The governor is unable to manage it with only a few hundred Roman troops !!!!

    The former province of Syria has been without a trustworthy Roman legion ever since Paulus left for the campaign in Parthia in april ! Wisely enough governor Paulus has left the province in capable hands and created a trustworthy militia to keep law and order until his return…but Paulus has not returned, nor have there any new legions been allocated to the province ! What’s up? Here also, criminalty is gaining the upper hand and it seems as if the Parthians have found out that the province is unprotected…already small incursions have been made in the last month. The people are in a frenzy, will the Parthians now strike at Syria????

    And these are not the only provinces…messages arrive in Rome from all directions calling for military support ! Obviously this mismanagement will have serious repercussions on the state finances.

    WHAT WILL YOU DO ROME?

    IT IS URGENT !!!!!



    Greets,

    Stratego is starting up a new game in the ancient warfare board right now, too modest perhaps to plug his own games

    Unfortunately not, BUT...SPQR was never intented to be such a hit. It became so in time ;-) It grew thanks to the participants.
    Who knows, maybe another game may grow out to become a success

    The reason why we still look back upon this game after 4 years is because it was something completely new here on this forum - at that time at least.

    We definitely would have killed you.

    Your skull would have gone in the sack that we used to feed the dogs.
