  1. Lucius wanted to ask several things, and some were not as polite as they should be. "I," He stopped himself, still not sure how she would take his dream and exhaled slowly. He was not an Oracle nor anyone holy by any means. He hoped that he was at least a dutiful brother to his sister, even if she was no longer with them. If this worked than the nightmares would ease, and he would get a decent night sleep again. And his dear Caecilia would finally be at rest. The nights would be restful, slumber would come easily, and he would finish the promise to Caecilia's ghost. "I believe that I have a message from my sister that I am supposed to deliver to you, and, it was for the pair of us." Lucius put all his cards on the table, and waited for her answer. Lucius shifted on the spot, it did not sound right and he hoped that she would not accuse him of losing his mind. "If I may have a moment of your time to tell you in private?" Lucius asked, and had no desire to be accused of ever corrupting a Vestal. "Private but visible." He quickly corrected himself. @Gothic

    He still could not believe that this was happening. Appius took his loved ones and ran towards the Campus Martius. He paused, it may not be the best idea to continue down that path and instead looked for the many hills around Rome. It was better to look down on your enemy through having the high ground than to suffer an enemy from above. He lifted his kids up the stairs and began to bang his fist on the thick doors of one of the buildings. Many of them had their doors being closed and bolted. The people inside perfectly content to let the survivors perish or find alternatives to survive. "COME ON! OPEN THE DOOR!" He heard cries of fuck off and other curses. There was no way that they were going to open it. So much for Romans helping other Romans. In a panic, he looked around at the gathered groups of people and saw there were some places. People were being encouraged to go in. It didn't matter for the time being about class nor ethnicity. All that mattered was getting people to safety. "Quick!" He said, ran to the door and felt the solder's grip on his shoulder as he went in. His children and wife ran inside to where the other women were. Appius lifted a gladius and was ready. @Gothic
  3. Alcohol always made Lucius the very best friends with everyone, his snobbish personality lessened and while he was not as reckless as he had been when he was a young man. At least he had not started to sing or anything quite as embarrassing as that. It was a far cry from the man he tended to be when he was sober. Lucius shrugged at the question, and only half expected for Tertius to actually go and actually get more of the wine. He waved at him when he was about to leave. Lucius grumbled his gratitude and blinked a couple of times. His head became foggy and he nearly drifted off into sleep when Tertius' words alerted him. Lucius' rubbed his eyes with the back of his hand to wake himself back up. He blinked a couple of times, and noticed that Tertius had brought company with him. A rather handsome looking youth and soon it was relieved just who he was. "Ah yes, a pleasure, I can see why you are so fond of the youth." He said, Hector was certainly handsome and well formed. Lucius reached out with his hand and just in case thought that Tertius thought he desired Hector. "Is the wine here? And, perhaps, I should get up in case I fall asleep here and awake with a shock." Lucius asked and reached out with his hands to help to get up. @Atrice
  4. Titus' fingertips tapped against the surface of the wooden desk. He could not stop thinking about ways to earn more coin. Eventually, he would need to either make a truce with the other gangs or attempt to push them out. Anything that would gain him further coin, and through that. Power. If he ever had a son he wanted the very best for him, even if it meant that he may have to sacrifice his happiness for the chance of a better life for his son. Always more. Neither the legitimate and illegitimate lines of work were particularly honourable for him yet they brought in considerable amounts of coin. He exhaled in irritation and sipped some of his wine. Temporarily he was away from his wife, and purposely kept this part of the business away from her. He heard footsteps in the background, and saw Lucius Corvinus, his second-in-command approach him. "Lucius, I think it is time for us to have a little meeting with the faction leaders," Titus said, personally, he had no interest nor favour in any of the teams. All he cared about was the profit that would come from the bets that were made. Sentiment was not essential nor wanted. "To remind them that our services are vital to their success or failure in the races, and that we are here to stay." "Yes Dominus, what team would you like for me to visit first?" Lucius answered in his gruff voice. His thumb idly scratched along the pale scar that marked his chin, the stubble made noise as he did so, and waited for the answer. "The Reds, make sure that they know who to come to for both protection and if they wish to sabotage another team. It doesn't take much. Men get sick, horses get sick, and all sorts of things." Titus listed things off and shrugged. Lucius was a veteran of this sort of thing and knew which of their agents who would be best to work with, for each task and what ones would be beneficial. "It will be done."
  5. Well that certainly didn't narrow the name down any! "Another guessing game?" Lucius asked, sighed in pretend frustration, threw his hands in the air and gave a dramatic sigh of mock irritation. Again, he gave her a charming grin of amusement. Still, he was more than willing to play along with the games. He lifted his hand, pretended to tap his fingertip on his chin in a 'thinking' pose and smiled at her. "Hmmm,.... quite the tease, aren't you?" Lucius asked. "Claudia..... Claudia...… hmm.... there are many of those. Is she ranked or lowly? Is it... Ooh! Claudia Gaia! The former slave who married into the Imperial family!" Lucius exclaimed, then paused, and waited to study her features more closely for any sign of who it could possibly be. "Or, hmm, who else could it be...……" @Atrice
  6. He would remember what had taken place here for quite sometime. Appius shook Alexius' hand and did not pull away from it. Still happy to have met the man rather than the hero he had imagined in the past. Meeting one's heroes was always an incredibly strange sensation. Appius liked the man he met, and was content for the memory of who he believed Alexius was to slowly fade away. "I hope so, be well and may fortune favour you." He answered, "Be well, and remember what I said about employment." Appius Minor now also looked up and smiled at his Pater's hero, smiled and waved. Minor then remembered he was growing into a man now. Appius' son reached out his hand in offer of his own handshake. "It was nice meeting you and talking to you." Appius Minor said his farewells. @Atrice
  7. Gaius wholeheartedly believed that all the workers at the Domus Venus would have been all too happy to spend time with him. Vibia was beautiful, her clothing only highlighted her features and those blue eyes of hers. His gaze lingered a little too long on her cleavage before it moved back up to meet her eyes. Clearly she was one of quality. He wondered what spirit must have possessed him in order to walk past her and choose another on several nights. "There is plenty you can get for me," He murmured, subconsciously bit his lip and knew what he wanted. Her second question made his gaze move around to the hallways of the Domus Venus at any other potentials. There were several that he had purchased their time previously, a couple, he had become a repeat customer to them. "I would like to enjoy your company this evening," Gaius said, it was one thing to purchase solely for an intimate encounter. Yet with the amount of coin he was going to spend or rather, the coin his body slave would pass along to the Madame. Near the military camps and other more lowly establishments, the intimate encounters were incredibly different. These were primarily courtesans rather than prostitutes, and several of them had their own particular talents and specialities. Not all of them were intimate or related to being incredibly flexible either. "So, who are you? And most importantly, what are your specialities?" He asked. TAG: @Sara
  8. How are you not like your characters? I am not lecherous like Gaius and I am much more focused on work. The guy is a twat. lol What about your characters?
  9. There were many things he was supposed to be doing. Gaius had one ambition and that was to taste all the fruits of the Domus Venus. It did not take him long to arrive in the location necessary. He had lost count of the amount of times he had made the trek to the venue, walked through the doors and soon caught sight of the beauties that surrounded him. It made him feel alive, and temporarily he could forget the obligations he had towards the state and to his nagging stepmother. His eyes lit up brightly as he walked through. Dancers, performers, and people performing intimate acts surrounded him. This must have been how the Gods on Mount Olympus felt. He looked at one large breasted woman as she walked past, garbed in transparent silk that only highlighted the curves of her body and was soon distracted by another. In the past, he had heard her name spoken and did not particularly know her. It did not take him long to have wine provided for him and he casually held the goblet in his hand. Finally, he found her. She was reclining on a sofa and flirting with a Senator. He could not recall his name at the moment, but had a nagging feeling that he knew his stepmother. A wicked smirk appeared on his face and walked towards them both. Reclined beside them on his stomach, rested his clean-shaven chin on the palms of his hands and smiled. The other potential client looked shocked, then uncomfortable and it did not take long for him to stutter an excuse before he left. "You must be Justinia," Gaius said, and not without a hint of smugness to his voice. Slowly he rolled onto his back with his arms folded behind his head with a cocky grin. "I promise," He added, reached out the goblet for her to hold and let it go. If she took it, she took it... if not... "I will make it up to you, and I can assure you that business would be more pleasurable with me than what it would have been with him." @Sydney
  10. "Fucking." Do you love your spouse?

  12. His stepmother had nagged him endlessly. Berating him for not taking the time to connect to more experienced Senators, or meet with Caesar or the princes. Anything! Gaius would have preferred to do anything else. All he wanted was to drink, fuck and enjoy all the treats that life gave him. His one redeeming quality was that he was an excellent soldier, and that he had produced children. Her nagging eventually succeeded in him going out with the intention of meeting fellow Senators in order to boost his career. She had threatened to reach out to Senators on his behalf and likely would if he did not act. It was bad enough for her to pressure him into remarrying again. He had done his duty. Married and the Gods decided that she would get peace from him through death. Now? He would enjoy his Mistress, lovers, and other people who his stepmother did not like. Gaius did agree to go to the Circus Maximus and socialise. Perhaps he would see a lovely man's wife and seduce her? It all depended. He approached and sat down, exhaled slowly and rolled his eyes heavenward in irritation. Further way, he could have sworn he saw a familiar face and it was Aulus Calpurnius Praetextatus. If Gaius remembered correctly he had a ravishingly attractive sister as a Vestal. Going to waste! It was almost as though he heard his mother and stepmother's voices in his head to both nag him. Gaius grunted and rolled his eyes. He smiled wide and raised his hand in a warm greeting. "Ave good Praetextatus! Would you like to sit with me and talk a moment?" He offered. Briefly there was a person who walked in front of him so he was able to frown. The last thing he wanted to do was listen to a boring fellow, and then smiled again in a warm greeting. @Sharpie
  13. Hmm… I need to get Titus into more plots. Anyone interested in a thread with him? 

    1. Gothic


      I'm up for it when we have closed some of our earlier ones! 😄 

    2. Atrice


      My gladiatrix Rana is new at the Ludus Magnus, if he wants to thread with her. He could also meet up with former gladiator Alexius or meet my spy/whore Helios and make a deal? 🙂 

    3. Brian


      @Gothic, absolutely! 

      @Atrice, good on both counts. I don't see him going to the Domus Venus without security though. So, it is likely that Marcellus and Titinia would know/or be involved in some way. 

  14. Appius would not let it ruin the games for him, and hoped he had not broken the illusion for Appius Minor. His son, his mini version of himself sat beside him and had his chin rested on his hands. Later Appius would ask his son about what he thought about what he thought about the gladiators and the games. Someday, he wanted to show him the injured gladiators or the graves of those who had died in the arena. The human cost was always there. "Not at all, and," He said, hoped that Horatia would not be angry with him, "if you ever need a place to stay or work. Find me at my home," It daunted on him that he had not yet introduced himself, and did so in a roundabout way. "Ask for the home of Appius Cornelius Scipio,". Appius wondered if Alexius would recognise the name. The family name had a long and mostly dignified name in Rome (not incredibly some less than worthy members). There were many men who would not shake hands with the a former gladiator. Appius extended his hand in offer of a handshake. @Atrice
  15. Goths mentioned AeRo to me on and off over the years. I would check it out, ponder joining and then decide I couldn't. When the site came to IPS she dragged me here and then I decided I enjoyed the community. Then stayed, and have four characters.
