Re: New RP Discussion Thread

Hello all,

Apologies for the tardiness. I've only recently moved and my internet has been less then cooperative over the past few days. I'll endevour to tear through all the posts and get back into the swing of things over the next few days. Again, many apologies.

Sincerely,

A. Flavius

Re: New RP Discussion Thread

Argh, many apologies. I was thinking along the lines of young Lucius Verus and Commodus. How embarassing... :oops:

Re: New RP Discussion Thread

Hello all, So this places our story just after the ascension of Commodus? We would also have to remember that Commodus had Geta ruling alongside him, at least initially. We will have the opportunity to play around with the death of Commodus and the resurrection of a New Republic. This would be espe...

Re: New RP Thread!

OOC: Many apologies people! The move from Melbourne to Brisbane is not going well :) Apologies for my tardiness. Also, I've had a quick breeze through the posts and apologies if it is mentioned, but what Emperor are we currently under? IC: Aulus Flavius went to take a step towards Marius when out...

Re: New RP Discussion Thread

Hello one and all, Apologies for diving straight in like that, I should have had the common sense to acquire permission before posting. I've explained my past association with Marius' character to the man himself, I'll let the RP play it out should it head in that direction. No point spoiling good ...

Re: New RP Thread!

OO: I hope that no one minds my interrupting, but good RP is a rare thing these days. Apologies for my appalling Latin! IC: Aulus Flavius hated the games. He hated the idea of pressing himself in with the rest of the screaming Roman mob in order to watch as groups of slaves and freaks hacked at eac...

Re: Rationality and the Gods

Salve amici, Apologies for the length of time between postings. You're arguments lead me to ask just what sorts of evidence we should be accepting then Piscinus. Can we accept something like revealed knowledge? When there is no way to independtly verify it, how can something like that be called pr...

Salve amici, Marius, Marius! I was wondering when you would post :) I did ask a pretty subjective question. Now that I look back on it I probably should have asked people about books that moved them, rather then trying to suggest one that would move me, fickle skeptic that I am. Would it f...

Alfred Duggan's "Family Favourites"

It was the only one of a long list of books I could find at a large inner city book store. Thankfully, thus far it has not disappointed.

I recommend it.

Vale,

A Plea

Salve amici, I find myself in something of a dilema. I have recently read Gore Vidal's 'Julian', re-read Marguirette Yourcenar's 'The Memoirs of Hadrian' and I find myself desperate for good fictional Roman literature again. But I need a book that will move me, in a way that only those classic...

Back, at least for the meantime.

Salve amici, It's been some time but I've returned from the unique experience of basic training in the Australian Army. You may now address me as Signalman (Private) :) I got out just in time to come home and see my family for the holidays. I have about a month's leave before my employment tr...

Salve amici,

I seem to remember a post or discussion with Piscinus some time ago regarding the Lares, and Penates. Considering the central importance of these two very Roman deities to the Household Cult. I'd love to read an essay on their nature, worship, rites etc.

Vale,

Hello Piscinus, But, Aule, what is this "universal message" that you refer to? What do you mean by seeking a message in the religio Romana? As I initially said I often hear Christian friends speak about an ultimate message behind their religion, be it goodwill towards all, spread ...

The Message

Salve amici, I've been recently engaged in a debate with a friend of mine online who happens to be an atheist. One of the topics he constantly refers to in arguing against the Abrahamic religions is their insistence of a universal message present in their religion that applies to all. This got...

Salve Piscinus, Don't sell yourself short here Piscinus, you're still our Numa :) I've read over both of your posts and both of them are certainly understandable. My own studies into philosophy, both at university and privately, have shown me that the ancients concepts of the, for lack of a be...

Rationality and the Gods

* Hello all, I recently sent this in a letter to Piscinus to help with a personal matter of faith. However I thought the topic relevant enough to post it publicly and see what responses I could get from other Romanes. I will not publish any reply Piscinus sends me, for obvious privacy reasons. -...

I just found a site featuring a number of rings, many of them from the legions. Go towards the bottom of the page.

Salve amici, Thank you both for the help. Latin was never my strong point, it's a very specific language. restitutor orbis is a phrase you tend to see in the later history of the Empire, especially Aurelian as Marius pointed out. However I was never too sure if orbis referred to the physical ea...

Translation for a ring

Salve amici, I'm looking at getting a Romanesque ring made for myself. However after looking through pages and pages of rings, I've come to the conclusion that they were just as individual as the people who wore them. So with that in mind I'm thinking of getting a ring with the phrase "Et...
