Ah yes. That would be a pretty seamless way to integrate it in. I will play around with the respective scenes for the Noble and Merchant classes and see what I can do. Thanks for the suggestion!!
AHAHA staring lustfully at your nemesis, thats quite a funny thought!!! Hmm, agree abt the bath scene, I will throw in some conditionals and try to ascertain the MC's orientation earlier on. Great suggestions and thanks for offering your pov! Correct me if I'm wrong, but for now I will probably write it no different from a straight rs, cause I think that's probably closer to reality?
This is true. But for most part I would imagine that it would be very difficult for a slave working in the plantation with other slaves to pick up latin as his exposure to the language is minimal.
Before the fight, the Roman master had no reason to invest in you (or any other slave perhaps other than the vilicus), and interaction was minimal. And the timeframe we are looking at numbers in weeks, not months. Hence I think the way it is now errs closer to reality? What do you think?
With regard to picking up a basic understanding of Latin, I think there's always a gulf between native speakers and people who hear the language without much explanation. As in most cases, we learn very simple terms but find it impossible to communicate our thoughts any more complicated than a swear word or asking for directions?
Also, I have no intention of allowing lower class MCs to catch up hahaha. As it stands, a lower class MC can still achieve more than a noble MC if he/she is street smart.
Hahahaha i laughed at this. From the polls it seems that there's really no clear preference. Also because I have yet to develop them much, but we shall see in the next chapter!
Ooh. Thanks for pointing out the errors! I will take a look and fix them on my working copy!! Hahaha the potatoes error is definitely negligence on my part. Was googling "ancient roman diet/feast" and saw vegetables so I simply assumed. Thanks for letting me know!! Super sharp as always
