Re: Roman Themed Games

Also, if anyone wants to play Rise of Nations, my girlfriend and I are looking for some players, perhaps on the weekend sometime.

Re: Roman Themed Games

Salve Tiberii, I saw Rise Of Nations in an Office Depot store, and it looked like a Civ coo cat game, but when I looked it up I saw good comments about it. What nations are available besides Rome? And can you create scenarios with it? All major nations: Romans, Greeks, Egyptians, Chinese, Jap...

Re: Roman Themed Games

Rise of Nations is fun, but very short.

Re: Holiday Festivities

Salve, Iohannes. My focus is on ancient religion of the Mediterranean. Depending on the program I get accepted into, it'll either be Graeco-Roman cultus, early Christianity, or Hellenistic Judaism. Inevitably, which I choose I'll do all three. As for Greek, if only I could speak it as well as I coul...

Re: Roma iterum

I finally got me a copy of Rome 1st season. It's not so bad, and mea puella et ego like to watch it when we're bored. I'm not ever sure if she's thoroughly interested in my running commentary on the inaccuracies, but we both agree that the battle scenes (at least in season one) were simply horrendou...

Alexandria is still Alexandria, the city in Egypt. Purus, -a, -um is pure, or castus, -a, -um. Pura would mean "a pure woman", Purius is potentially a name, and the daughter of whom would be "Puria". I don't know off-hand if it's attested.

Wrestling isn't really a "martial" art - i.e. it wasn't for combat. Eastern martial arts were literally martial arts, developed for combat. Roman martial arts were strategics.

Salve, Calidie. As a new citizen and now new flamen minor at Nova Roma, I'd love to hear ways which Nova Roma failed you in your opinion in the ex-pat thread. Criticism is the healthiest thing for any organization.

Cleopatria Aelia can be a decemvir feminea. I do not remember then discussing vira, but I know now that it is not in any way Latin. Actual Latin would require decemmulier, but making like poeta, though masculine normally, if it's applied to women, it's feminine. Another Latin point I want to corr...

I don't think Eques should be default for ex-magistrates. In Roma Antiqua, equites were a very distinct group of non-Senators who engaged in business. By law they could not be a senator. Therefore the ex-magistrates who were Senators should probably be counted as senators in keeping with ancient tra...
