Adventure/RPG set during Roman Republic or Empire
« on: July 16, 2014, 12:12:16 AM »

I was recently reading about Ancient Rome and what a horrible time it must have been to live in. Anyway, I think the setting could make for a great adventure / RPG game. They did believe in magic and sorcerers and soothsayers then, so that element could also be brought in, in addition to the obvious physical combat. There are RPG's set during that period, but no adventure games that I know of. Many are medieval Europe settings. I was just thinking how, at the end of the game, you could assassinate one of those sociopathic emperors.

Just wanted to throw that out there to all you adventure game designers!

I always thought an Ancient Rome with some modern twists like in Mel Brooks' History of the World Part I would be a hilarious and captivating game setting!
