*Ancient* Roman Humor! >({|;-)

Salvete, amici Romani! Who says Romans can't laugh at themselves? --Nobody 'round here, of course, or we'd be short material for this thread. And nobody who's read the 'gift tags' of Martial; or who knows that some of the earliest complete works of Roman literature are Plautus' comedies; or who's...

Better?

Salve, mi Formose, et Salvete omnes! > As to posting pictures of yourself from when you were still a young and attractive lad all over the place... Hei! I resemble that remark! <g> But I'm not trying to defraud anyone. (That's illegal on the 'Net, isn't it, to pose as some teeny-...

Re: New RP Discussion Thread

Salve, mi Flavi (and Welcome back)! No fear, it's not a "permission" sort of thing. Come on in; the water's fine! But, as in any forum or e-list, it's a good idea to read the archives, at least far back enough to know what's going on (and who's wearing civvies). Fortunately for this R...

Idibus Martiis

Salvete Romani! I have been deluged with maybe three pages' worth(less) of Ides of March jokes. Most of them are only awful, as opposed to gods-awful ("tides of starch"?)... I present to you the only one that made the cut. It might still be a groaner, but considering the company it ke...

'State your positions...!'

Bene, I may have gotten confused too, but here's what I thought was happening... ⋅  Marius was standing on the far side of the table, slightly behind Iohannes , when Medusa smeared snackfoods all over Iohannes. ⋅  Marius managed to restrain himself that time...barely,...

An Experiment in Ballistics

Marius stalls out

Wings. I like wings. Are we done discussing poultry parts now? I don't make friends quickly, my dear host, and I don't throw myself at people who haven't approached me first. I've also never been comfortable talking to other peoples' wives; I hope Xanthippe understands. Give me a while (and a ...

Rules for Combat

Salvete conlusores (Hail, fellow-Players)! Well, well, well. Looks like we're about to have our brawl. There's still ***some*** (very small, but non-zero) chance that Paulus and/or Medusa can talk their way out of this one, or that Marius will tamp down his killer instinct for that one more frac...

Cave Canem

"I wouldn't mind a good brawl," said Marius with a quiet and dangerous intensity. "What say you, Formose? In the main, I do not allow people to soil my friends. On the other hand, if Magister Iohannes isn't bothered by it, then I don't suppose I should harbor any resentments on hi...

Mistaken Identity?

Pace , mi Formose, pace already! Of course I knew Tacitus Hibernicus, if I wrote that I did! (That's one thing about my previous life: I don't remember much, but I took good notes.) He, a centurio (and, yes, drillmaster) of the Ninth, in a Province where there are stranger things than arm...
