    • I'm the point-and-shoot variety of photographer, so I'm glad you think they're nice! Of all Greco-Roman places I've been to, it's a tie between Rome itself and Pompeii. The former for its variety, the latter for the glimpse into daily life it provides. It's really hard to choose! 
    • Beautiful pictures, Liv! ❤️  Thank you for sharing them with us. What was your favourite place to visit? 
    • Much of what you write here strongly resonates with me, it's good to know I'm not the only one who needs time to get in the right headspace for a particular character. Fun stops being fun when it turns into a chore.
    • I hear you. Life has been busy for me too, but I love when I find time to play. I've also modded other games and I know how it can eat your life. Games should be fun. If they're not, there's something wrong. It sounds like you're doing the right thing.
    • I think there's something in 'Rome in the media' for stuff like this.

Travels #2: Hierapolis

Travels #2: Hierapolis

Hierapolis was an ancient city in Phrygia that later became a part of the kingdom of Pergamon. When King Attalus died, he bequeathed it to the Romans, and they came and did what they were known for: built roads, baths and taxed the hell out of the inhabitants. A number of earthquakes destroyed the city over the centuries and eventually led to it being abandoned, and nowadays, while the site is extensive, there isn't much to see that remains in one piece. What's left of the gymnasi

Travels #1: Side

Travels #1: Side

Due to a case of wanderlust combined with clinical depression and a circadian rhythm disorder, I like to travel to sunny spots when possible. Some of these spots end up being places that were once a part of the Greco-Roman world. This time I visited Side, in the southern coast of Turkey. Back in the day it was an important settlement in Pamphylia, much plagued by pirates until Pompey gave them the boot. Here's a few pictures of the remaining ruins: Temple of Apollo

Character Clothing: Claudia Gaia

Character Clothing Profile CLAUDIA GAIA   Gaia was a character that I never thought I would get into. She was one of my, "well, throw her into the world and see where she ends up!" and I got to say, her story has surprised me. Gaia or Χρυσανθη (Chrysanthe) started her life as a poor farm girl in Greece. However, in AeRo, her story began as a slave when she was given as a gift to Manius (one of Claudius' heirs and his nephew) by Archaita, Manius' mother. Essentially, she was

Character Clothing Profile FLAVIA JULIANA       While this isn't something that is really seen. I like to show Juliana's growth and personality change through the change in her clothing. Previously, she was insecure and would make it up with jewelry or excessive accessories in order to try to stand out. I first started playing her when she was around 15? I think, I dunno. (And I am terrible when it comes to aging up my playbys, they usually stay the same and I just ima

The AeRonian Issue seven 2019 Half way through the year! Whoo!    Things have been busier than usual so I have been a bit behind with things.

Juggling RL and RPG

This is something I have been thinking about on and off. Basically, my RL has gotten more involved over time and I have not been able to dedicate the same amount of time I used to AeRo in years past. For one; it was unhealthy as fuck, and two; my life has a lot of other priorities and I want to keep RP as a hobby. A much beloved hobby, but, a hobby none the less. This is going to be a tad rambly and hopefully I will edit it before I post it. But I might not depending on how I am going at the tim

Pompeii IRL!

Pompeii IRL!

So I was lucky enough to visit Pompeii when I was in Naples last summer on holiday. I thought I'd post up a few photos as none of my irl friends had that much interest...!  I don't think the photos really do justice to just how enormous the site is, nor how well excavated and preserved it is.  Enjoy!

The (IRL) Roman Empire

This is the Roman Empire at its largest historical extent, c. 117AD, shwoing the provinces and whether the governors of those provinces were appointed by the Emperor or by the Senate. Map unashamedly pinched from Wikipedia. Click here for the full-size map. Please note that this is the RL Roman Empire; conquests made during the course of AeRo won't necessarily match up.

Interior design the Roman way

I have a collection of images showing various (recreated) rooms of a Roman house, or houses, and thought you might like to see them! Very image heavy!! A cubiculum:   Triclinium: Private reception room? (Don't think this one was actually labelled as anything other than 'Roman room'!) Another private reception room, with a very contemporary-looking sofa Cubiculum:   Another triclinium: The kitchen, this one a reconstructio

I ended up practically tying myself in knots working this out for Reasons. This is pretty much the conclusion I came to, and a copy of something I posted elsewhere, for those reasons. I hope you find it helpful; if people would like, I could copy/paste this whole thing into an actual post somewhere to make it easier to find down the line... Back to the topic at hand.

Anyone for a game...?

While not specifically a Roman game, this was still being played in the days of the Empire... Youtuber Tom Scott and Irvine Finkel, a curator at the British Museum, go head-to-head in one of the oldest board games we still have the rules to!

The Roman Burger

Roman Burgers! Hello everyone and welcome to a new edition of Atrice's blog! I was inspired by the chat on Discord, where someone linked to an article on the ancient Roman burger... and I can tell you all to make it at home, because it tastes quite good. I have made the Roman burger at home a few times (it's our Lupercalia food, it seems). The burgers are called Isicia Omentata. I use Apicius' recipe - Apicius was a Roman gourmet who wrote down a number of recipes from his era and the

Ancient Rome info

I was just looking up some information on gladiators and slave markets, and thought I'd share this site with you all - it's one I use a lot, because it's easy to get an overview here and it's also easy to read. So instead of scrolling through tons of Wikipedia pages for info, this is a bit easier - just click the link below  Roman Empire and Colosseum And then I'll leave you with this, because noone says 'fuck the gods' like Agron...

Are we all surprised that I kept up with the AeRonian? 😛  I know I am.    Upcoming Events!  Lupercalia is coming up and Sarah has put down Tiberius as a candidate.  Do you have a man who you think would be suitable to run naked through the streets of Rome and strike ladies with a bloody piece of skin from a sacrificed goat? Nominate him here and we can get rolling!  We have the opener
