* The whole TrojanWar thing just turned into too much of a debacle, and Hephaestus decided that for their next entertainment they would aim a little lower (and pick a historical event that did not have so much active involvement from the gods themselves). So this time they setup the Third Servile War. As an added bonus, the war was less thoroughly documented and there was more room to play with the characters and their individual lives, rather than trying to keep the whole thing consistent with a piece of literature like ''Literature/TheIliad''. They might have even used Mars as the location again, which would account for why Italy looks so uncharacteristically bleak.

** Entirely possible he would not have cared, any more than Batiatus would have about Lucretia's child really being Crixus'. By the late Republic era, the Roman upper class was suffering from a serious (and mysterious) fertility problem. For example, Julius Caesar had only one legitimate child, his daughter Julia, and several supposed illegitimate ones he never confirmed one way or the other. Polite pretense was the order of the day for many who wanted heirs but were having trouble producing them. That and adoption.



*** Whether she was really insane in the beginning, by the end of ''Vengeance'' she is for real.

[[WMG: So...who gets to kill Tiberius?]]
The guy has apparently made it his mission in life to get on as many shit lists as possible. Let us count the possibilities, shall we?
* Kore. This one should be obvious.
* Marcus. If he finds out the truth about the above.
* Ceasar. Because...damn.
* Spartacus. The man has a very good track record when it comes to vengeance.
* Nasir. But don't count the rookie out just yet.
This list shows the last 10 events of 45. Show all.
