Rommie pulls out his Roman Uniform and slips into it, ever so snugly. It must've shrunk after being in storage for so long. He stands upon the balcony overlooking the Colosseum grounds and begins to speak....

Friends! Romans! Ex Islers! Lend me your ears!

Many of the other factions here have created their own harbors for which their members can gather. Yet we the Romans, one of the oldest factions of the community have yet to show our strength and numbers.

When we joined this faction, we pledged that we would remain true to our Goddess Andromeda no matter what the cost. And yet our numbers have grown thin. I believe I speak for the entire Triumverate, let alone the Empire, that we shall not allow this to happen.

We shall rise up from the annals, and show that we still exist. We shall show that the Romans will never go quietly into the night. Those of you within the empire, don your togas, your uniforms, your keychains, and gather here in the Colosseum! Show your allegiance to the Goddess Andromeda!

And while we're at it, let's have one banging Toga Party while we're at it! :D

* a light spills upon the colluseum, and a vibrant gust of wind, then a lrge ship dramatically hovers over... the lights go out, and a body begins to materialize... once  the figure is fully there, the ship flies away leaving guppy in full roman attire and about 4 thousand gallons of sparky in large crates*

Welcome friends. Your offerings are much appreciated, and will be put to good use! Now let us rejoice in that we are beginning to re-gather. I am sure that the Emperor himself will be here to give us his blessing as well. :D

When did I start talking all Roman and stuff? :eh:

Oh well.....it fits........unlike my uniform........ :p

:D   I hope the togas come in a size that will fit me properly.  Too often they are too short, and, well...

No time like the present!  I'm off to get my toga and keychain.
