Chevi Posted July 22, 2019 Share Posted July 22, 2019 Britannia, 71 CE After years of struggle, resistance, and constant fighting, Britannia was slowly coming under stable Roman rule. One of the most obvious signs of this were the Briton traders that kept showing up outside the camps, offering their wares and paying fair prices for the goods of the Roman merchants. Had things gone in a different way years ago, Aius would have been out there with her father, making deals, selling and buying, and watching Britannia turn into a province from the sidelines. Instead, things had gone wrong, and here she was, dressed as a man, interprex to the legions, wandering out of the camp in her spare time. Or so it would seem. While she was not a rank-and-file soldier, Aius was an important part of Rome's armies. In the past years, she had gotten good at talking in various Briton dialects, and gathering information from the people - traveling merchants, captives, local farmers. Sure, she had a friendly nature and she liked talking to people in general, but her superiors also saw the value in her abilities: as someone who looked like a civilian, she could troll out into the markets, talk, and gather information without gaining too much attention. That was what she was doing now, in fact: combining her few hours off duty with a short trip to the newly arrived merchants. Maybe they had interesting stories to tell. @Sara Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
