Story and his companions arrive in Rome in 44 BC, the day before the Ides of March. They encounter a very unusual soothsayer who delivers a warning to Julius Caesar and soon find themselves embroiled in intrigue.

"Gods, he runs fast!" Titus runs after Adelphus, but quickly gives up, not accustomed to such physical exertion. He scans the forum to see if a commotion was kicked up and after picking up a knick-knack or two from a merchant to kill a little time Titus heads up Palatine Hill.



Handy,Titus is going to see if Adelphus went to Cleopatra's on the hill.

Titus Iunius Philo,I thought you might. You'll need to wait for a little while I process actions from the other PCs, so please be patient.

He watched as the crowd ended and flowed about them, some laughing, some taking loudly, some silently messing their way to destinations of import. He followed the cloaked servant and watched a fleet footed old man dart off at a rapid pace. Even the elderly in room were in a hurry it seemed.

Lupus looked at the rapidly disappearing seer and then at the (just bought) food and drink in his own hands.

I'm not racing anywhere if I'm not riding a horse.

Lupus shrugged and started toward the Theatre of Pompeii instead, munching on olives. He planned to enjoy the play, admire beautiful audience members, and keep an eye out for more famous people.

Aricus Callidus Gladio, ex-gladiator

"He moves with serpent swiftness," thinks Aricus as Alephus recedes beyond sight. "Such speed more proof of deception."

Aricus catches his breath and heads back to the forum.

"The old man moves quickly!" says Elizabeth in surprise, as they follow him. "Shall we try to catch him up Story?" she asks, turning to the Time Lord.

well that old man was nowhere to be seen now, last he was following him through crowd, seem like he was going towards palatine hills...wonder what kind of work could have made that old man or who ever that was.. to run so fast, the play was already not interesting to Spurius after that sight, so he started walking his way back towards palatine hill...

OOC,is it possible to have Spurius meet his farmer family or some known npcs at or near palatine hills..so that its not an awkward walk..instead he has some primary destination apart from finding Adelphus over at Palatine hill..

Hearing Elizabeth's question Story looks at her an smiles, "Hmmm, while I am curious. I don't want to us to arouse unnecessary attention... especially since we only just arrived. Perhaps we can just casually make our way in the general direction for now." Looking at Lucius, "But you my friend, perhaps you can take flight and scout ahead?"

Celia casually follows the party including the two women and the old man. She only has a bit of free time left though as she has promised to help with the patching up during the gladiator matches later.

Lucius hurried ahead, but even he was unable to catch up to the speedy Adelphus. He wasn't moving with superhuman speed, but he was moving with the grace of a much younger man and was very adept at navigating through the crowd, whereas Lucius kept bumping into people and losing ground.

Aricus pulled a muscle when he tried to chase after Adelphus, slowing him to a hobble. While he was confident that there was no lasting damage and that he'd be able to fight on the morrow, it certainly hampered his attempt to run now.
OOC,[b]Lucius[/b]'s Resistance Table roll (DEX 15 vs. [b]Adelphus[/b]'s DEX 10: 75% chance) to follow [b]Adelphus[/b]: [dice]0[/dice] [b]Spurius[/b] is unlikely to have family who live on the Palatine Hill, as it's a very wealthy area, but he may know someone prominent there. Also, most of the rest of the group is heading in that direction as well, so it's less awkward. [b]Germanicus[/b], [b]Claudius[/b], and [b]Lupus[/b] are moving to the thread linked below.
