    I wonder if Scipio will live as "happilly ever after" as other previous roman heroes ( like the liberator of the aztecs that by accident purchased a land with a gold mine in it for a fair price :p ).... he is definitely very Sharpe-like, maybe too much for living in the countryside after a glory-filled liberation of Mongolia :D

    Well, as he doesn't even have the money to buy a decent sword yet :D and the Mongol liberation is far from complete, this will not happen for a while anyway .... ;)

    I plan to write one more Scipio story to wrap up his arc, and the Mongolian war with it.

    After holding myself back for so long I read it all up finally. And I'm impressed as always, Sis :bowdown:
    Everything contained what a good plot needs - well, except sex, maybe :D

    I found this story or perhaps I should call it a novel just few days ago and I just had to read it while working. So, it's your fault if I get fired :lol:

    It's superb! Thank you Sisiutil!

    Unfortunately not--I'm trying my hand at writing a novel for publication (at long last), so that's been sucking in all my creative juices lately. Sorry!

    Oh well, have fun writing your novel, and be sure to let us all know when you've finished so we can run out and buy it!!

    Ditto; if it has the kind of quality we've gotten used to, it'll be a hell of a read! :D

    You should make this into a graphic novel with support! Maybe Sid will look at it? I wonder, what if he sponsors your story and sells a series based on them? I would love to look at a graphic novel version...

    The best part: You don't rush your writing unlike another series writer... (J.K, stop speed-writing. It breaks the immersion.)

    so this great tale has died? without conclusion, after more than 2 years.

    anyways, good luck on your next project.

    ... and Caesar killed Genghis and Alex and married Lizzie and they lived in a palace and had scads of babies and lived happily ever after the end.

    Oh, I guess you were looking for more than that, eh? ;)

    I'm sure I'll come back to conclude this story eventually. But I got inspired to write a historic fantasy novel over the summer and I'm trying to bring it to a close. I'm hoping to sell it.
