Below is the link showing the unexpected conclusion of the Battle on imagineered Sardonia.

The usual briefly captioned photos tell the story mostly through the voices of the miniature participants.

Thank you for your interest and support.

In light of the magnificent victory of their legate Pompeius Augustus Pettygree, the citizens of Rome, through their tribunes have petitioned the Senate to award the victorious general the honors of a triumph. The Battle of Sardonia has secured the tranquility and peace in the waters of the Middle Sea and assured that there will not be any more depredations but those decadent easterners. Salve legatus triumfans!

It looks like great fun was had by all (one of you). Maybe not so much by His Elephantine Majesty Sardonicus III.

Cheers,
John

Love your stories and I always look forward to what's next!

After having read so many off these, I do wonder. how much is scripted and how much is left to the dice gods?

A human statue made of living stone
A paradox etched in human bone
If you could look behind his thin disguise
There's a hidden glint of madness in his eyes.
Many men are fooled by his smile
His superficial grace his charm his style
Sardonicus is everybody's friend
Sardonicus keeps smiling to the end.

Hello Antiquity and/or Story Aficionados!
-----
II Legio et al, is on the Back Table waiting for a next game in 2-3 weeks.

King Sardonicus III awaits the return of Chief Minister Craxus with triple the tribute due to his rebellion.

General Pompeous Augustus now known as Pettygree the Merciful awaits Craxus too as he entertains King Sardonicus under house arrest. The latter's entire Army is now back in the capital without weapons or armour --- in their storage boxes.
-----
Prisco: The words you bring are joyfully received in camp.
-----
John: Sardonicus does not belong on the field of battle but he is an Ancient King and therefore believes he does.
-----
Jim: This remains to be seen depending on Craxus. Hmm. Seems a further story could be percolating. There may be other rebellious nations in The Middle Sea desirous to have a stab at The Republic.
-----
Korvessa: Nothing was or has been scripted. Dice determine everything. Story lines are imagineered based on same and the photos I take during the game.
-----
John: Remarkable poetry.
-----
I am grateful for your remarks, interest and thoughtfulness to write. Thank you!

Pettygree the Merciful, indeed! A rare quality in a Roman general, for which King Sardonicus III and Craxus (and their people) should be very grateful indeed.

One hopes that they are, but history has turned on the shamed not realizing they could be much worse off…

Cracking good yarn, Bill, as always!
thumbs up
