Let's find out!How will they endure it? Will they endure it?
Future historians will have some difficulty explaining to people chicken were one of the main reasons Roman science was not as advanced as it should be...And so it came to ante diem quartum Nonas (the 4th day before the Nones) of October 549, when yet again the chickens proved fickle and uncooperative.
These kind of events is one of the reason I mostly improve stability up to +2 and don't take the final costly stepthis was more than balanced by news that was almost literally worth a 1,000 talents of gold: a bumper harvest had raised the Republic’s stability [back to +3] without him having to lift a finger – or spend a denarius!
And while the declaration was pushed through, the Senate [rather stupidly and obstinately ] absolutely refused to sanction any calls to arms being sent!
the consul has to find that manual chicken manipulating populists and employ them!There was a call for the now under-performing Gallic chickens to be turned into ‘chicken a la rex’ and eaten for dinner that evening.
A great episode! Just when I thought there'll be more setup and rebel bashing, suddenly the Second Eastern War began. The beginning of the war has been good until now, and the fact that we have now been able to call Egypt into this, I think this will go smoother after now. The last roadblock is to destroy the main army of Pontus now. Already waiting for the next episode!
