    Unhappy Lorica Segmentata?

    Why aren't the Romans wearing the lorica segmetata as the RTW game does? All sources show they are wearing it! Asterix shows all the Roman soldiers in Julius Caesar's era also wearing it. The lorica segmetata is the best armour! According to the articles and books i read like Dorling Kindersley's 'ROMANS' eyewitness book says the lorica segmetata was cheap and easy to produce! Why does the EB team not include it? It is not historically reaslistic!







    ...sorry, I just had to do it. XD We didn't have an LS thread for March yet, so I thought I'd just try my hand at one, since it seems so fun there's one every month.

    Ooooh, I do wonder who will take this on?!

    *sits down with popcorn*



    I think there ought to be a poll for the best "where is the LS?" thread

    At first, I was looking at it thinking 'Oh gods,' but when I saw your name, I just knew that SOMEHOW it wasn't serious.

    Pezhetairoi there is a price to pay for mentioning the Lorica Segmentata on this forum, you are now the most wanted man , dead or alive, with a price of 10,000 mnai on your head. May Jupiter Maximus have mercy of your soul.

    LS's threads are great, they help orgers stay alert.

    A thread a day keeps you people okay.

    I think Pez should start a LS thread EVERY month. That way the inevitable starter of the not-yet-made LS thread can just read Pez's insightful and informative comments ...

    Long may the barbarians continue, I pray, if not to love us, at least to hate one another,seeing that, as fate bears remorselessly on the empire, fortune can offer no greater boon now than discord amoung our enemies - Tacitus

    Seriously, have you ever heard something about this? A large group of Italian reenactors strongly support this possibility... What do you think??

    BELOVED FORUM THREADS NOW CONFIRMED AS ENDANGERED. POSSIBLY EXTINCT.

    Let's not all forget that, many months ago, there flourished a great species of posts that, because of the high value of its flame-bait (a sad thing in indeed) may well have become extinct through obscurity. Due the recent rarity of the sightings of such proud threads, the species is feared to be extinct amongst many forum-thropologists. This tragic thread species I'm talking about is the now-famous 'EB Team has Underpowered Romans' thread. Even the thread sub-species of '(Insert civilization name here) is overpowered' has become elusive, leading to mounting fears that it, too, may well be heading down the road of never being seen again.

    This should be of the greatest concern to the forums GreenusPax, yet no-one seems to care, a conspiracy is perhaps afoot here...?

Your annoying attitude, bad grammar, illogical arguments, false beliefs and pathetic attempts at humour have driven me and many other nice people from this forum. You should feel ashamed.

    "...a new survey finds that again this year the number one issue among voters is bullshit."
    "Let us remember that there are multiple theories of Intelligent Design. I and many others around the world are of the strong belief that the universe was created by a Flying Spaghetti Monster. --- Proof of the existence of the FSM, if needed, can be found in the recent uptick of global warming, earthquakes, hurricanes, and other natural disasters. Apparently His Pastaness is to be worshipped in full pirate regalia. The decline in worldwide pirate population over the past 200 years directly corresponds with the increase in global temperature. Here is a graph to illustrate the point."

    Definitely fun alright. XD I was waiting to see how many people got heart attacks before they recognised who wrote it. XD

    We should start monthly overpowered threads just to keep the thing alive too. Endangered threads must be preserved for posterity! XD

    It's also a way of paying tribute to the old fact that history repeats itself. :D

    What about LS-wearing elephants on egyptian chariots drawn by four horses, one hurling javelins, one shooting arrows and one hurling AP, BP, very_long_range flaming pigs with its trunk? Frightening infantry and cavalry both. Deadly, man.
