For all those who appreciated our Basic Roleplaying supplement Rome: Life and Death of the Republic, here is an additional opportunity to use it in actual play. These four scenarios transport you to the first century BC, the time of Julius Caesar.
The Ransom and The Promise by Ken Spencer feature the plague of piracy in the Mediterranean, with the frequent taking of hostages and the necessity to reassert the supremacy of Rome over the seagoing scum. But the players will soon discover that the Eternal City hosts subtle, yet more hazardous, kinds of threats.
In The Sacrilege by Pete Nash the players will face an obscure intrigue and ethical dilemmas, in a mystery adventure involving a mixture of passion, religion and treachery.
The Invasion by Conall Kavanagh takes our adventurers to the most daring of Caesar's military adventures: the invasion of Britain. Will the characters, used to Roman politics, find their way in the dangerous arena of Briton tribal intrigues?
Run as a mini campaign, or used as single adventures, these scenarios offer exciting and deadly experiences - including riots, battles and the inevitable skulduggery of Republican Rome!
