Story so far

After dealing with the double dealing Remus Solo in Northern Gaul, the 11th Auxiliary Cohort of the 12th Legion made arrangements to march south – or be carried on a litter south, in the case of Tribune Tarquinius – past the alps to the fair market town of Narbo on the southern coast of Gallia. With the smoking remains of Solo’s villa behind them, and an uneasy truce with the two Gaullish tribes who Solo and his wife Serena had hoodwinked into his scam, the 11th made good progress, although the bastions of civilisation were still some weeks ahead when a messenger arrived from the Castra Treverorum, a military camp and border post a days’ march to the East.

 

“Military Tribune Tarquinius,

Praise Minerva for the news of your arrival! I gladly accept your offer of help, as I find myself down a century or two since General Caesar passed through to subdue the last few Treveri dogs still resisting the Republic. With the majority of my capable warriors seconded by the legions, the skeleton crew I have here manning the border are in desperate need of respite. We will make room for your Auxiliaries and yourself, although the commanders’ quarters are somewhat spartan and we have not yet received the shipment of feather mattresses from Ostia that General Caesar requested when he last stayed here. I am certain you will be comfortable nonetheless!

Signifer Marcellus
Scribe to Praefectus Festus
P.S. We would appreciate any stores you can spare.”

 

Trying desperately to remember when he could have offered to send aid to an unknown Prefect in an inconsequential border post, Tarquinius listened as the messenger spoke and, eyes flashing in alarm at the prospect of yet more weeks without the comforts of a good bathhouse and well-stocked villa, he issued vague orders to divert the last dozen or so of the column to follow the messenger back to Castra Treverorum.

“Try to make yourselves useful, legionnaire” the Tribune muttered to one as she overtook his litter. Agrippina Maxima leaned over him and called out:
“And by Vulcan’s sulphuric arse, find out who’s offering OUR bloody troops to someone else’s bloody camp!”
