I lived in Italy for 4 years as a teenager. I got to backpack through much of Italy, explore the ruins, cisterns and haunt the tourists. Beautiful country.
Got me hooked on history and how the Roman empire has impacted the legal system and the world as we know it now.
When we play soldiers we have a Roman Legion with Cohorts, Maniples, lead by a Legate, Centurians and Tribunes.
Did you know the Romans had concrete, furnaces and central heat???
Yep we're nuts
