Since he hasn't Paid, this gives me first call over Crassus..We have visitors.. Tremendous visitors!. Two simply enormous Roman lords on the hill..How easily impressed you are, Ramon. Just 'cause they're Romans, I suppose they're enormous.. Tell them to wait for me when they arrive..Master, you don't understand!.How enormous do these Roman lords get?..One of them is Marcus Licinius Crassus..What? Wait a minute. Crassus here? Varinia, my red toga with the acorns.. And some chairs in the atrium..Second-best wine..No, the best, but small goblins...http://www.davidicke.com/forum/showp...&postcount=865
