With the fall of the republic of Rome came the era of Emperors. It was a time believed to be one purely of peace - Augustus had soothed a rebellion, and reformed the army of Rome, creating an unbeatable fighting force. For many years the Roman Empire expanded and became the most powerful force in all of the known world. Time past and so did the line of Emperors.
But something went wrong. A man by the name of Camillus Dexsius Julii was jealous of the move away from the original imperial line. Every day Vespasian grew in both popularity and power as a day spent by Camillus plotting his revenge soon, he had gathered up a small group of followers, which resulted in the assassination of Augustus.
Camillus immediately thought he would be the rightful heir to Augustus, but their was someone he didn't take into account; A man by the name of Manius Sabucius. He was the close friend and eldest step-son of Augustus. He was the one to rise to the newly opened position of power. Camillus was positively furious barely managing to keep his true intentions hidden from the ever watchful eyes of the imperial family.
With the new Emperor; Manius in control, will Camillus be able to successfully befriend him? Will he dethrone him like Augustus? And what of the Empire's borders? With Rome under the constant attack by the Barbarians, will Manius Sabucius avoid assassination? And can he keep those horrid barbarians out of Roman Territory?
