I would play. What are you looking to do with it? Legionaires against darkness? Dungeon crawling in catecomes and/or under the arena? Intrigue and black magic in the Senate?

Leggionares vs darkness probably best explains the rough outlines I have been thinking of. Was planning on fleshing it out of there was interest. I'll start right now.

Hmm. I'd be up for that. Seemed like such an interesting and underutilized option.

Expanding to 5-8 have 3 so far. Hopefully we can get a full tent unit and have someone willing to step up and take the officer role.

. . . take the officer role.

I presume you mean "the Corporal role?"

IIRC, only nobles were officers. Even the legionnaire in charge of a cohort was a non-commissioned commoner.

Highest a starting player is allowed is a decurion. A non commissioned officer by today's standards. But they are in charge and it is an edge. So I thought I would use the simplest language.

No problem.

I just went and googled it.

Wonder why it's an Edge, though? I mean, at that rank level you can only command the guys in your own tent . . . which are going to be either PCs (which means you can't really command them) or NPC Allies (which you would normally command anyway as a Wild Card). Other privates will just tell you to bugger off and to everyone else - especially civilians - you're nothing special.

Auxilary units. Every Roman force had an equal number of foreign auxilaries. Decurions could command them. There are a few perks to the edge I'll pull out the book and list them out in a bit.

Rank Decanus, player is in charge gets double command presence range. So would have to be built around command perks for it to be overly useful

Hi! Yeah, we have six including you. Going for 8 but will start on Monday or Tuesday regardless. I have the PDF of weird wars Rome If you need it for character generation. I would like to start seeing some completed characters. We have our own sub forum If you look down the list of active games.

I have the books. I was a backer of the KS and have been running SW since it's release.
I tried to post from my phone at work, but couldn't get my log in correct.
