I was recently reading a post on these forums about someone who wanted to do a historical RPG. So it really got me thinking and I started writing some stuff down. That turned into doing some choicescript work and so on. The finished piece of work is one of my favorite stories I have ever written.
Legions of Rome takes you into the fighting sandals of a roman legionary as he campaigns across the ancient world. It utilizes the new *image command to really help the reader become immersed in the plot and have a clear picture of what is going on. It features a stat system built around the gear that you carry and all content is historically accurate as possible. You will definetly have an advantage playing this game if you are familiar with roman military tactics.
Despite the historical information and all the background story, I really made an effort to weave some really dynamic characters into this story as well. I hope you agree as well as you can read the first scene of the book right down below.
The first scene focuses on setting the mood and tone for the rest of the story as well as setting up your stats and giving you some wise pointers for staying alive. You will also meet two of the main characters. The wise but ambitious Marcus, and the strong but short tempered Quintus.
I have tried to iron out all grammatical and coding problems in this first sneak peek scene I am providing. If I missed anything let me know.
