    I know my Emperor that you have suffered!

    I've never doubted, your intentions were good, but you were led astray by some maleficious advisors

    Things didn't have to turn the way they turned out.

        • What was his name...
        • By what specific element of warriors...
        • And to what Legio did they belong?
        OK, so a clue seems to be in order...

            For context & by the dispatch of Fate to my Endeavour & Outcome:

            The relief of Legatus Drusus & Legatus Paulus at Tigranakirt was essentially carried out by the Cavalry of Legio XX & Legio IV - independently detached under my only command at the time. Though the Rebel General did just barely escape, King Volosges - fighting stubbornly & defiantly in the face of certain defeat - met his fate in battle at the hands of 'Armored' Cavalry...

            It was accomplished by my Cavalry & I completely skirting around the southern edge of the city, from the west to the east & then north, to a point at which we then thrust relentlessly & at full gait eastward into the heart of elements then ruthlessly besieging Drusus & Paulus. At the 1st point of Legio XX/IV Cavalry's slice into the Armenians/Rebels middle flanks, it was enough to turn the desperate defensive battle then being fought by Generals Drusus & Paulus from one of near overwhelming defeat, by surprise, to a resounding rout by combined Roman Legios as the attacking Armenian/Rebel forces sought desperately - & not so successfully - to withdraw before being entirely cut off.

            My Dear Brother, you have 1 of 3...

              Darn it! I knew I should have found a way to save those 900 intel and battle reports from FATE! And the roughly 100 from the Generals..........

              You guys just don't realize the workload that confronts an Emperor!


              How about any easy one? What organic weapon was favored by General Falco?

                  Alright, the remaining answers to me quizie was: the Persian Cataphracts of LegioIV sent King Volosges to Hell

                  Just Falco's unwashed presence combined with his breath & flatulence was a venerable weapon!

                      General Falco's unwashed tunic, body, bad breath, and flatulence all fall under the classification of BIOLOGICAL WEAPONS.

                      Torien wins with the Ostrich Leg!.
