@Primarch Quick question. The Province of Syria goes through a few name changes during this period. Sometimes its just Roman Syria. Sometimes its Assyria. Sometimes its Syria-Palaestina. Is it okay if I just call it Assyria? Bending the historical accuracy here a little...

Yeah I Trajan will have died before making Roman Assyria a Province but screw it, that's fine. Run with it.

Neat! I have had a long running desire for a character based on a bloodline...
This idea is close enough that I can make it work. She would be from the bloodline of Cleopatra Selena II, daughter of Cleopatra IV [last Pharaoh] and Mark Antony. {also of the Ptolemaic Bloodline that leads back to Alexander the Great}

C. Selena married Juba II and they were placed as rulers of Mauretania, this being a bit of an AU the family still is in power and 'considered' loyal to Rome... Her father is Governor but wants a senate seat and has sent food and oil and his daughter to Rome.

Short Version! Hope that could work!

We've actually already got someone playing the descendant of Cleopatra angle. While the idea of two descendants isn't exactly impossible at this point I would prefer it if people explored alternate prestigious backgrounds.

Very very interested - but I was wondering if I could play a woman masquerading as a man, someone who is hiding their true nature so she can take full claim to her deceased fathers inheritance and power, but is at constant threat of being found out and subsequently executed. Would that be appropriate for a character submission?  It's something I would very much like to rp through in this setting but I understand if some people don't want such a thing to be included.
