Censora

Salvete omnes, We used to have Censores, and even now usually have one Curator doing most of the Censorial functions. Gaia Aelia Cleopatra was our go-to gal in that function in the Curia of '06-'07. We called her "Censora". It stuck. >({|:-) I know Latin is a gender-sensitive lan...

Re: Mons Aventinus Revisited

Salve, mi Marcella! Bein's I'm "the Other Admin", I don't reckon anyone's going to throw you out anytime soon. I haven't been active on the site in a while; but I do check in sometimes, and if any pages (like yours) need to be reverted or restored I can do that. I'll keep a closer eye ...

(He Gets It)

Salvete conlusores, Okay, okay, I get it! Most of us are feeling a little stifled by the historical-fiction format. I like fantasy and superheroes, Iohannes and Lupinius like science-fiction, and *no*body likes homework. I'm sure story-Marius knows what time the venationes start, even if I di...

The Brainscape 3

One of the brains was considerably smaller than all the rest, not domed so high, and more elongated from front to back. The head from which it had been taken had looked human enough; a Gulf War veteran locked in mortal combat with a vampire, who proved to be the only being in regio Teiana faster...

Nomenclatorial Matters

Salve, mi Formose, et Salvete omnes! > (That kid does need a Roman name, you know, you can't keep putting it off indefinitely.) Of course she does, and if she were my daughter she'd have had one from the get-go! But Na, she's my niece, so Soror got first crack, and she thinks I'm a cr...

Curses!

Salvete omnes! M Horatius Piscinus has got quite the collection of R-rated Roman cuss-words. [Un?]fortunately, I don't use any of them. But we do have a selection of authentic curse-expressions on the site: http://www.societasviaromana.net/Collegium_Religionis/curses.php . Most of them are crib...

Sulla, Fer Real!

Salve, care amice! Everyone, meet L Ovidius Ursus, formerly Romulus Iulius Ursus, Sodalis since August of 2002, and a close friend of mine since the days (nine years gone now) when Nova Roma was giving me all that Trouble. We had some correspondence about that then, and, like now, this good and...

PinC?

Salve, mi Formose! Na, not "PinC" (I'll pretend that means "politically incorrect"...am I close? <g>)...just OOP (Out-of-Period). If you can show me that the ancient Romans ever smoked, I'd be happy to design a "Smokey Robinson Roman Smiley" for you, but only i...

Mari's Excuse

Salvete conlusores! I'm having more fun in the RP thread than I've had in the SVR in toto in a very long time! I have tried and failed to start these things in other venues, but I seldom got any bites--not even the two or three in any one place that it would take to get a game off the ground. ...

Dead Silence

OOC: Forward to the Past

Ita, I'll be posting a description of Marius' insula from the outside soon; meantime, Mari is on his way up the stairs to his actual quarters, with Iohannes and Formosus hopefully still behind him. >({|:-)

Salvete, conlusores! Wow... Terminator, Alien, and Silence of the Lambs? Our cups runneth over, and not with molten chrome either! Mi Formose, was this the sort of whackiness you had in mind for the "Formosi" thread? --I'm liking it; it reminds me of my old chatroom hijinks, where...

[Humor cont'd] Hannibal in an Endless Loup

Not to be outdone in feats of extreme carnivory, the Goddess Roma appears in Her Goddess-Wolf form and devours both Hannibal and the Terminator. She discovers that She can't digest cold steel, so She hands the killer robot over to Vulcanus to be melted down. Afters, She adds a little milk and hon...

Meets and Greets

Marius and friends strode uphill on the Via Tecta on the last leg of their journey. As they came within sight of the insula , Marius noticed the same thing Iohannes did; but the presence of the toughs didn't seem to faze him any. All became clear when a burly, placid-looking man, peering into th...
