69CE. Only days after The Batavian revolt lead by Jvlvis Civilvs, a contubernium detached from Legio XIIII scouted the walled village of Hrabanazburh, of the Ravanni tribe; searching for allies and for foes.
It was there that the Romans meet with Chief Dernivs and his men and found Roman citizens seeking shelter under the Germanic warlord, along with strange emissaries from the East.
While the situation was ripe for real violence, in the end, the Roman troops and the Germanic tribesman participated in mock combat and allowed the Germanic warriors an opportunity to prove their skill in arms.
Retired auxilae prepared a feast that was pleasing for both German and Roman soldiers and much roman wine and german beer was drunk in the interests of keeping peace.
The Romans have left, escorting their citizens to safety and the news of at least one allied village to their command. But winter has come and the crop is lean and Dernivs has many hungry warriors.
What will await the Romans when they return?
