    Roma_Victrix for Phalera

    Good people of the Imperial City, welcome to the Are... no wait, wrong intro... Good people of the Curia, welcome to the next Phalera application! Now that we have laid Lord Oda to rest, it is time for me to submit to you Roma the Jester as a recipient for an absolutely deserved award.

    We all now Roma for his exceptional and continuous contribution to the board with his jokes and humorous threads, but I'm not sure that all of us know that he's also an excellent historical poster, who has produced an incredible amount of historical threads and posts during these years.

    Let me illuminate you with some links
