Re: New RP Thread!

Nowhere in this damn amphitheater was a jug of water or posca to be found. On her search for something drinkable Medusa bumped into her magister who just walked back from watching a fight of a tiro provocator of the Ludus Dacicus against a gladiator of the Ludus Magnus who had won one fight so far. ...

Re: New RP Discussion Thread

I've just been busy! Go figure right when I jumped in to the RP my time on the computer changes (just Saturday saw the Pompeii exhibit again and really got to appreciate it this time because there weren't many people...the Thracian gladiator's helmet was so awesome! Can't imagine how they had that ...

Re: New RP Thread!

OOC: @Marius: If you are waiting for venationes you are definitely too late at the amphitheater because it's already in the afternoon and the gladiators are fighting. Venationes are held in the morning. IC: Though she had enjoyed the cheering of the crowd Medusa was glad when she left the arena an...

Re: New RP Discussion Thread

Salve Sempronia Pulla,

Why don't you play a Patrician woman who does things which are not appropriate for Patricians to do? That would spice up your role if you play someone who does unconventional things and does not limit you because its just a game.

Re: New RP Thread!

IC: Medusa waited in the dark tunnel which led into the arena when it was time for her to enter it for her fight against this other woman who was standing next to her. Medusa was clad in the gear of a provocator , that is with a greave on the left leg, a pectorale , manica on the sword arm and...

Re: New RP Discussion Thread

If we start at a munus then I could start the story of my charackter only in the arena. I would rather fancy a meeting at the forum maybe a day after the games where I could spend my prize money on some jewelery >({|;-) But either way actually doesn't matter, the main point is that we get the ...

Re: New RP Discussion Thread

I agree with Marius' suggestions of how to get started and about the conventions of our RPG.

Re: New RP Discussion Thread

I'm still interested in the RP but am very unexperienced in such things so like you, Iohane, I, too need some guidance.

Re: Another New Person

Salve Sempronia Pulla, I like this forum a lot and it was actually the first forum dealing with Ancient Rome I got to know. You are right, this is a very friendly place and the big advantage is, that it is just a loose forum of people sharing the same interest and not an organization like Nova Roma...

Medusa's Morning

I found this link on the RAT forum and like it since it's a joke about Medusa (which is my arena name as a gladiatrix):

Re: "Summa Rudis"?

Valerius Claudius Iohanes wrote:Salve, Cleopatra Aelia -

What would a "summa rudis" be doing?

Vale.


The summa rudis is the referee at gladiatorial fights. E.g. the famous mosaic from Nennig shows one watching over a fight of a retiarius and a secutor.

I have two of the gladiators and one legionary by Playmobil. So I put their armor together in a way that it comes to close to being authentic, have now the pairing of a hoplomachus against a murmillo. And the legionary functions as a summa rudis ;-)

Good idea. Makes it also for me easy to play at least some kind of a role since gladiators are appearing.

Article about Gladiatrices by Cleopatra Aelia

Avete Amici, I have published my first article about female gladiators in the German reenactor magazine "Karfunkel, Issue 76, June/July 2008". It took them over a year to publish that thing but better late than never. For all of you who can read German you could see the article on o...

The so called "mixed edifice" was very common in Gaul in contrary to an amphitheater. Nonetheless places with a mixed edifice still had also a small theater. Alison Futrell pointed this phenomenon of mixed edifices out in her book "Blood in the Arena".

What is that blob in the last picture of Trajan's market? That is a sculpture of a modern artist lying around. They were all over the place, all eggshaped. One was in a stall on the upper floor and I couldn't resist saying that was the booth of an egg store. I like all your pics! Did you get t...
