The Epicurean concept that pleasure is good, as apposed to the judo-Christian notion that it is sinful.

I think that any rational person can strike a balance between enjoying life and devolving into hedonism.

My signet ring,

I would go with an image of Divus Gaius Iulius Caesar with gens Iulius written on it, and maybe my initials if I can fit all of that.

I have always had a special fondness for Caesar.

Re: Connections

Salve, mi Silvane! Until a person actually does identify with a Roman gens, it's probably better not to apply for citizenship in Nova Roma. I speak from excruciating experience: Names are a bitch to change over there. In the Societas it's no trouble at all; you PM me, I tweak it, you let ...

That sounds about right, I am horrible with languages, I can barely speak Italian let alone Latin. However thanks to what little I do know I can more or less understand someone either Italian or Spanish when they speak to me. My conversations with my grandmother are a great example. As she gets o...

Agricola Cordo sal To L. Livia Plauta, "Tabernarius is correct, but his view needs integrating" True I was generalizing as with any country people are still individuals and atheist's can be found amongst the hardcore Catholics. You could say I am sort of one; but not really, (I am...

I wonder how different is Italian and Latin compared to old and new English?

I remember from reading Shakespeare's Julius Caesar that the original old English was almost reminiscent of using my mediocre knowledge of Italian to communicate with my Hispanic friends. Not as bad but still challenging.

My name

Agricola Cordo sal.

Well I had help with my roman name, when I joined up with NR they gave me three choices, and the name I chose was the closest to my real name.

Giuliano Taverna becomes Gaius Iulius Taberna.

I like it, I think it suits me.

Salve Dionysius Draco Well yes its that kind of game, slow and long. But also quite entertaining as far as I am concerned, it can get down right addicting. Like I said the major problems with the game is its lack or realism, the Egyptians have chariots and Nubians as if it where several hundre...

healing the schism

I am happy that Nova Roma apologized to you, hopefully this is a sign of things to come. Like a union between the two organizations if not a complete fusion. Here is hoping that the roman revival movement will come to a reasonable consensus of what is and is not roman and become a positive well ...

Salve Claudius Iohanes, Well I usually see a copy at Game Stop every time I am there and as it has been out for a few years it is very cheep, (you can probably pick up the gold addition with both expansions for 20 dollars or less.) Also it is in my opinion very accessible, I am good at videoga...

For my money it would be Constantine the usurper, (true he wasn't a real emperor but he was proclaimed emperor by his troops and the citizens of Britain) He was willing to risk the entire world just to lay claim to Rome, and he did a pretty good job of unleashing the barbarians on Rome. In fact o...

Rome Total War

Has anyone picked up this game, and if so what are your thoughts? I love it, play it all the time. It has some realism issues but that can easily be rectified with some of the fantastic work the moding community has done. http://www.twcenter.net/forums/index.php (one of my favorites is Euro...

Yeah I am still in my prime, I may not be a pagan but I am definitely a son of mars. I only wish there was reenactment stuff where I live. Not very many Romans in MA, a ton of Celts though. Hey when in Hibernia, have a few beers and fight naked! I will say that when I get my toga made I will m...
