New RP Discussion Thread

Salvete omnes, It seems to me that the best way to get new people into this RP is to make it as clear as possible that this is completely new. I therefore suggest we discuss it all in a new thread. Re-posted is Marius' last post in the previous thread, in which he posted various questions we shou...

Tarquinius, I can't answer your second question, but regarding your first: Normally there weren't legions in Italia, but under certain special circumstances - such as the Italian War - they were certainly allowed south of the Rubicon. However, I would assume that special dispensations were creat...

Draco! How are you? You haven't let us know in this thread what you've actually been up to during your absence! I'm still around and dry, though I poke my head in here but rarely. Aye, I too remember the long chats at Baiae. (Incidentally, I'm in the south of England. Probably not much ...

I too am around, albeit rarely... I write this in between essays, so I shall chime in if I can, although it finding the time is difficult.

My fellow Scribonian,

Many thanks for researching this; I find it an interesting insight into the culture of a few of the Germanic peoples with whom the Romans came into contact, even though there are some difficulties involved, as Tiberius Draco has noted.

Bene vale,
Curio.

Salvete omnes, Please accept my apologies for the tardiness of this post; I should have posted an opinion a while ago. First of all though, let me express my general outrage that NR have AGAIN banned Christians from taking office... How can it be considered to be getting better if they've re-ins...

Salvete, Yes, I suppose some further detail would be useful... I saw it quoted in another book, but I believe it came from Book VI, 22-23. Draco, I'm not sure; perhaps society in general. To put it in a wider context: "Their whole life is composed of hunting expeditions and military purs...

Salvete Scerio et Avite, Scerio: I agree with some of your words, and disagree with others. I don't think the objection here was to the fact that Avitus' suggestions were "radical and not in our tradition". It was more the manner in which they were put forward. Also, I see little reason to b...

Of Germanic habits

Salvete omnes, A quick question. I've recently come across an extract from Caesar's Gallic Wars that surprised me. Caesar says of the Germans, "Those who remain longest in chastity win greatest praise among their kindred." Is this one of Caesar's exaggerations, or does this have some truth? ...

Despite his nocturnal tendencies, Curio was still exhausted, given how little sleep he had had recently. After having a little food to restore his strength, he went to sleep with the knowledge that his companions were near him. His awakening was much less comfortable. The sound of a horse's ste...

To Avitus

Salve Avite, I have decided to put this here, since the points I wish to make appear to apply to most of the other fora. In general, being the stereotypical Brit that I am, I prefer to maintain civility and to avoid confrontation. However, in this case I believe there are things that should b...

On the Latin grammar I shall refrain from commenting, since I'm not a Latinist. However, I do believe that literature should stay with the other arts. I also think the languages part should be ancient. However, it's not that important. We've discussed linguistic trends that have included moder...

Salve Avite, You make an interesting point. I would be in favour of keeping this name as it is, for the reason that there is a difference between Latin and historic Greek, and modern languages. The former may not be dead, but an effort must still be made to keep them alive. On the other hand, ...

I, too, think that there is no harm in associating with AT; they are an impressive organisation, who could indeed afford us advertising benefits.

Curio raced after Marius down the corridor, the flames hungrily spreading behind them. The servants had by this time fled the building, knowing the passages far better than the visitors. No doubt Paccius had also escaped in the chaos. However, Marius, Curio and Draco were not alone in the bu...
