Bring the second best wine…no, the best wine, but small goblets…

I’m not a fan of online role-playing games (well, not the officially endorsed ones), but if I were, then Roma Victor certainly looks like the one for me…I know I waxed lyrical about players inflicting penance on rivals n the Name of the Rose board game, but this raises the stakes to positively Spartacusian heights…

Players who misbehave are punished by having their character crucified and displayed in public for other players to mock and throw things at. The first crucifixion has been meted out to “Cynewulf” (bless!), a 27 year-old electrical engineer from Flint, Michigan, who’ll be hung on the cross for seven days…

Quid quid latine dictum sit, altum videtur – as they used to say…
