The Imperium: A Reminder

While the video is reasonably accurate (if you allow for the mix-up in regard to “who supplies the equipment”, a.k.a. the Marius reforms), what I really like is the feel/coolness of the video.

“This is what a real Imperium looks like.”

There is a certain grandeur, a certain power, behind the name ‘Imperium’ that does not exist for a ‘Republic’, or a ‘Kingdom’.

Let’s call it Power and Pride, for lack of better terms in our democratic age.
(There is a technical term for it, Romanitas, if you want to investigate it yourself…)

Now, despite my fairly good understanding of the Imperial soul, I am far too Christian to ever be a real Imperial (Stoic or Epicurean).

But a Referee simply isn’t doing his job, if — at least once in the campaign — the players don’t get a glimpse of the astonishing levels of power and wealth, intelligence and ruthlessness, that backs the Third Imperium.
