Insignem Pietate Virum: a Roman Civ V let's play!:
''0 anni ab urbe condita''◊ The men have set up camp. The location isn't an excellent one, but the nearby forests should provide timber for the time being. The marsh can be cleared. Later. Our hunters have found an ancient ruin to the South. It contained spears and fine wooden shields, and they promptly armed themselves with them. ''100 anni ab urbe condita''◊ Another city with a despot was further down South. He seemed uninterested in us and our warriors. We will leave him alone for the time being, but he may be a good trade partner. ''550 anni ab urbe condita''◊ A band of adventurers have gathered and explored the coast to the North. Skimming along, they found two other cities, which welcomed us warmly, and a beautiful landmark. The gods have blessed us. Unfortunately, our men abused the hospitality offered at one of the cities and committed a theft. It may take a while to re-establish a bond of trust. ''775 anni ab urbe condita''◊ The barbarian raids coming from the South have been dealt with. Our adventurers lost a lot of men, but the warriors cut down the enemy without much difficulty. Bless Mars. ''1000 anni ab urbe condita''◊ Today, our city has existed for exactly one thousand years. Let us never forget Romulus and his great achievement. The city elders will gather today for a meeting on which course of action our city should follow next. There has been a lot of discussion about founding a second one, not far to the South. Our spearmen had found gems and cattle there, but founding too close to the other despot might anger him.
So, fellow tropers, what should we do next? If any one wants me to show particular screens or areas, feel free to ask. *

Augustus scratched his head. "A thousand years? And we haven't even conquered a city? This is not the version of history I have learnt." He then called for his personal escort of slaves, soldiers and servants. They collected the scrolls and made their way back to the imperial palace, and while walking, Augustus pondered about the meaning of these scrolls. Who wrote them? And more importantly, why? Even more mind-baffling, who would record the invention of writing over a thousand years after starting a literary work of himself? None of this made sense! The scrolls would have to be examined in greater detail, at the comfort of his own home.
''1500 anni ab urbe condita''◊ The city of Antium has been founded. The other despot, who referred to himself as Ramses II, also constructed a new city, close to Antium. With this city, he now controls all of the gems in the immediate vicinity. Thankfully, we control all the dye. He should be dealt with sooner or later, though. ''1925 anni ab urbe condita''◊ The two small city-states have asked us to destroy the other. However, Ramses II is protecting both of them. The intrusive snob must be dealt with. ''2025 anni ab urbe condita''◊ Ramses II built yet another city. We met another despot to the North, though. She calls herself Catherine the Great. She seems nicer than the ruler down South. On a side note, we bought territory off the natives to block Ramses' territorial influence at the river. That will show him! Muahahahahaha! ''2500 anni ab urbe condita''◊ Ramses II remains a problem. We should try to find a way to knock down his walls as fast as possible and then invade him with our superior spearmen. In other words, this guy has so got to die.
