how its done

"Bene'st; but, since we've lived through the Third Century once already, we ought to be pretty good at it by now. >({|;-) Let's show 'em how it's done!!" Well said, I hope to do just that. Its not as if I spend all my time talking about the good old days. I like to think that we ...

my mission

"We can't take Rome back" Your right we can't, maybe some day Rome will take us back. One can only hope but for the here and now Romans spending time together; persevering and propagating the Via Romana is enough. I take it one of your issues with nova roma is its hope for sovereignt...

very nice explanation.

Interesting points, as I said my family is from a rural back woods area so I guess the tenancy to favor nationalism is still prevalent, (even though I personally am fairly disturbed by the whole thing) honestly I didn't have a tough time separating Romanism from fascism, manly because nearly all ...

Thanks, I try

true enough, but still for the roman empire this was a breaking point. But to be fare I think the vandals and Huns where far worse than the Goths and franks who where generally Romano-philes for the most part. I couldn't find a good picture of the vandal invasion, dam crafty Germans and their...

east vs. west (the west always wins!)

"legionaries against samurais? Good idea, I might try to organize that (at least in re-enactment)." God I would love to represent Rome in such a match, hook me up with even a Camillus era hastati panoply and there will be unconscious samurai every where! set me up as a legionary, and...

My Philosophy

I would like to share my modern take on Stoicism and Epicureanism each of them in my opinions have their strengths and weaknesses. I say that the contempt of pain and restraint in most things is a great virtue, but when advocating stoicism to others of a more emotional nature, its is important to...

On the decline in population, I completely agree that it was a major factor. And disturbingly enough we are repeating it. climate change, few good parents, even fewer people willing to become parents, wide open border with little and corrupt immigration control, and lots of envious bordering nati...

My little sister makes costumes and such for herself an her friends (anime cos. play and Halloween) so I have asked her to make me a linen toga for the summer, but that may take awhile.

Roman fighting

Well lets put it this way, if you jumped a legionary veteran in Rome how would he beat you up? I mean Romans where taught to fight as a unit, a living killing machine, but they where also given instructions on how to fight should the formation break. I would like to think a legionary could bea...

Caesar

Absolutely undeniably yes, I am certain and perhaps more. The Persian army was historically quite effective against Rome, thanks to its horse archer advantage, however any reasonable general will simply recruits spearmen foot archers and house archers of his own to counter it. In the course of...

SVR and NR

To Aldus Marius well all I have to say is I am hopeful that in the future some or all of the inconsistencies or backwardness that may have driven such a wedge through SVR and NR will be overcome. my thought is that being and ideal roman is the same thing as being an ideal person. most Romans, ...

Ave V. Claudius

Hey as cynical as I am on most things I can’t help but be optimistic.

It wouldn’t be very roman of me to have so little faith in Rome or for that matter anything of worth.

I am happy to be here and happy to contribute in my own modest ways.

It makes sense to me, I mean people from Germanic backgrounds have a habit of considering Mediterranean's hot blooded.

As a virile, fertile, roman man I take it as a compliment.
