Re: Cut the grass, drive out the snakes

He wanted to scream, but had no mouth. He tried to remember . He was…a man? Yes, that sounded right. That was something. Who was he? Wait, was that right? No, he had always been a formless nothing. No, that couldn’t be right...how had he come to be in this place? He’d always been here…no that wasn’t...

Re: On the Nature of Emperors and Empires

June 28th, 2019 A firm hand shook Remus’ shoulder and he immediately snapped awake. “Ten minutes, boss.” Their hide was a simple hole cut into the rocky sand and covered by a tarp. It was large enough for one man to sit up at the bottom with his legs stretched out so he could sleep, whilst the othe...

Re: On the Nature of Emperors and Empires

The bridge was a good deal larger than he remembered- though,he supposed it wasn’t the same bridge he’d encountered the better part of a decade earlier. Despite the area of Qolestan Province, Sadari to the immediate north of the Nimrus River theoretically being in another country, it hadn’t stopped ...

Re: On the Nature of Emperors and Empires

He heard the grinding of tracks on sand and howling of diesel engines long before he saw them. They came often enough to this village- more of a town, these days -though the days on which they came varied. They kept their patrol routes irregular, as is good practice. They’d become something of a reg...

Re: On the Nature of Emperors and Empires

“Titus, my good friend!” the corpulent figure in the garish robes bellowed at him from atop his throne, staggering excitedly to his feet and nearly knocking his vizier off his feet. His long curly beard swayed before him, even has his extravagant turban nearly tumbled from his head. He flung his gob...

Re: On the Nature of Emperors and Empires

There was a tremendous amount of paperwork that needed to be done to ready the legion for war. Just that morning, Marcus Aradus had signed off (or rather, his adjutant had) on a request for 2,000 new uniforms. Apparently spiders had gotten into one of the supply warehouses- a tremendous number of sp...

Re: On the Nature of Emperors and Empires

Much has been written of the Antarterans over the past millenia, and, naturally, as with any topic on which much is written, there is a good deal of scholarly disagreement concerning the matter. Much of it concerns abstractions about which only scholars really care; choices of words really: are the ...

Re: On the Nature of Emperors and Empires

Severus waived off the adjutant and made his own way to the coffee machine while Protus said his piece. He'll be awhile, he thought. How this man had been elected consul five times still eluded him; he considered that a personal failing, as it was his job to understand how people thought. Certainly ...

Re: Cut the grass, drive out the snakes

The guard scrutinized the ID card, while his colleague scanned the road behind Lucius, and another pair circled the vehicle with a dog and bomb-sweeping mirror. He'd been commuting to this facility for the better part of six months, and still got nothing more than a "Please present your identif...
