Story So Far
January 49BCE. The Gallic Wars are over, and Caesar marches back to Rome in Triumph with the Thirteenth Legion.
The Eleventh Auxiliary Cohort of the Twelfth Legion, the Fulminata – the Thunderers – follow behind, taking the opportunity to march closer to civilisation and all its comforts. Their barracks are provided by Agrippina Major, the Domina of a Ludus outside Ravenna.
It has been a year since the breaking of the Siege of Uxellodunum, and a prosperous year for the Twelfth Legion. Gaul has bent the knee to Rome, and with it the breadbasket of the northern provinces. Those members of the cohort who have a way with words have been able to make a tidy profit on the side, and those that speak with their fists have found their services in regular demand in persuading the uncooperative tribes that they have, in fact, lost.
Time to look to the future, and a few years’ relative peace after the decade of war in the north. Twenty years’ service starts to look achievable after all, with all the benefits it comes with… citizenship, retirement, wealth.
