The account of Severus which has to date consisted mainly of whinging, plotting, back-stabbing and minor skirmishes has finally delivered a proper pitched battle!
Gasp at the huge numbers of men fighting to the death just outside Manchester (think Waterloo the movie here with thousands of men rather than Sharpe's Waterloo where the whole battle was done with just 20 extras).
This unlikely-to-be-repeated experience can only be obtained by going at once to look at Spite of Severus.

Once again, a Roman force confronts him. Eumenes has a hard battle ahead of him. Whether he will triumph would be a test of his tactical skill and his troops' stoutness.
