Well Stuart ….. I got my turn back but I’m flummoxed - and where to begin? I’ll let you read the news and suggest how I get out of the Emperor’s dark thoughts….
Well the good news is that after your character snubbed the Emperor and expected him to run around after you rather than be standing ready with a very large red carpet, the 6m denerii you owe him, and a selection of his favourite sweetmeats and edible doormice you are now the most popular man in Rome with everyone other than the Emperor.
To get out of the Emperor dark thoughts I suspect you are either going to set a new record standard for toadying and flattery in Agema games or you need a new Emperor who only thinks kind and fluffy thoughts.
Have you ever considered how the flavour of Nero's favourite doormice can be improved by the subtle flavour of Henbane, Mandrake, Hemlock, Autumn Crocus or various types of mushrooms.
