The Republic's first order of business: should /rome/ cover both the western and eastern (byzantine) Roman Empire, or should we allow Byzantine to be is own general?
>board exists for literally less than an hour
>it already has generals
Pure cancer. Stop this.
Byzantine is a creation of the Germans to pretend like their Holy "Roman" Empire was one and undermine the real Romans. At no point in their history have the Western Romans called themselves Byzantines. The fact that modern Greek called hemselves Ellenes again instead of Romans is also a relatively recent thing. Where Ellene(Greek) had a pagan connotation but Roman had a Christian one.
All the worst boards are littered with generals.
Generals devolve very quickly to tripfag circlejerks.
They limit the variety on other threads and clutter the catalog.
Generals are the worst thing to have happened to this website in the last 5 years, which is really saying something.
The board is new, why the fuck do you need a general. Do you want to make a continues thread every fucking day about Roman history? Nigga this ain't /vg/. Don't need a general to circle jerk.
/rome/ should cover the kingdom of the rome, the republic, western, eastern and holy empires and so on. There's not going to be enough traffick to warrant split generals and they're all so linked it makes sense to keep it together in one thread.
Julianus was pitiful, in that his reign ended very quickly and was the result of the extreme corruption of the praetorian guard.
Elegabalus was a literal trannie who had himself fucked silly in orgies with the most well hung men in the Roman empire.
I personally love all eras of the roman empire. Late era is one of my favorites along with the punic wars
Sure. You can discuss literature on /his/ in relation to history, such as the propaganda values The Aeneid had on Augustus' regime, but as for discussing the literary devices on a non-historical level, that should be reserved for /lit/.
Don't worry senators, I totally want Rome to become a republic once again.
Let me just kill my former ally and continue this temporary rule for 40 years.
>I love how the Romans had the ability to mobilise so many men.
I liked how the Celts lured them into the trap at Caanae.
> Based Celts
> Mandalorians of the classical era
Some of you guys are all right, don't go through Teutoburg forest this campaigning season.
Give it a week or two. You could post basically anything that wasn't illegal on /mlp/ when they made that for like, four months before they got any moderation.
It's not like they consider /his/ any less of a containment board.
As a warm-blooded Christian American, I agree with this anon
>being in /rome/
>living in a society of pagan homosexuals
