It's been forever and I believe Celsus died in his cell of starvation? Now I'll have to roll a new daddy for Reaghen. ;)

Meanwhile, some vids on Rome the series by History Buffs!

Another free online course about Rome starting today and running five weeks. This one is about the Eternal City itself--a virtual tour using a 3D model of architecture. I don't know yet if it covers late Roman period featured in Eagle's Twilight.

This kind of thing helps transport me to the "long time ago" and culture "far, far away", part of the creative appeal for me of RPGs.

Note to players: despite the long period of winter inactivity, I haven't forgotten this game and intend to schedule Season Two in the spring. I've got some FG desktop repair to do, plot prep, and my Hadrian's Wall history course to complete first! More soon.

Hector, someone posted this on a Facebook page. Figured you would appreciate it.

Perfect historical background: a 3D rendering and walk through of Housesteads (Velurtion) Fort and its adjacent vicus, where Eagle's Twilight takes place.

Welcome +Johannes Oppermann to Eagle's Twilight!

We'd love to have you play a Roman character, since we need to balance our mix of Britons/Celts and Romans. When there's a chance, let's discuss character concepts.

In the meantime, you can read up on existing protagonists in the Player Characters section and read what's happened so far in Episodes & Recaps. See the dramatic relationships between protagonists summarized in the relationship chart here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/photos/photo/100883549721277203902/6294691217330951490?icm=false&sqid=115772387942007747261&ssid=277a8abe-cf5a-4c00-9da2-7ea9cb977305

Also, here's the nutshell series pitch:

For generations the wall Hadrian built protected the far edge of the world’s greatest Empire. And then one day Rome recalled her legions.

You and yours have decided to stay.

Yesterday you were Romans.
What are you today?
