Et Tu Brutus?
Indulge me my dear audience, just this one more post... Now take a good hard look at all that green on the minimap. That is the colour of an empire. My empire.
I have conquered everything except for my good friends the Scipii, the Julii and the Senate Popularesque of Q Roma (I can't remember what the Q stands for).
Apparently I have to declare war on Rome and conquer the fair city in order to claim victory. Which I do not want to do because I happen to like the Roman Senate, I think they make better rulers than Imperators (emperors). Aside from that, the senate loves me on account of a large minority of my 180 family members disliking the chariot races and being damn good public speakers.
I do wonder what will happen if I just take turn after turn but I suspect the only things of interest in this game will be rebellions in my far cities. The senate will just sit there twiddling it's thumbs I suspect.
This has never happened to me before. Generally The senate asks me to commit suicide by now (and generally by the time I get this many territories, I have to not only wrestle with rebellion but also a depleted treasury), instead I'm in a great position under no threat whatsoever.
Anyway just thought I'd brag about a game which has no relevance to real life. Next post I'll be back writing about war religion and politics.
