Antiquity

Between its history and its legends, Antiquity is filled to the brim with iconic characters that are now points of reference for both real life and fantasy. But more than the Spartacus, Hercules, Judas, Aphrodite, or Hannibal, the time period also saw concepts that would grow very well represented in our culture, and inspire a lot of characters in LARP.

Legend

Side by side, the dozen or so young men were impatiently waiting, a mix of nervosity and expectations visible on their faces. Having trained many months together already, the time for them to join the 7th Cohort was approaching, where they would start their service and acquire essential experience. The next to be called with Lucius Cornelius, a brave recruit with expectations bigger than reality. Having heard for a long time about the legends and the glory of the Empire in which he had spent his whole life, he was finally ready to join the ranks of the Legion, resolute that he wanted to actively contribute to the prosperity and safety of his kin. He did not know exactly what to expect, only that his group was summoned today for something urgent. Wiping a bead of sweat on his forehead, he exchanged a quick look with his companion on his left, then moved forward.

Getting closer to the pavilion, he recognizes the silhouette hidden in the shade as the grizzled centurion who had trained, a greying man who was severe yet just. After a brief exchange, the experienced soldier signals Lucius that everything was in order and that today, the moment he had expected for so long had finally come. On the table was what would come to be his most prized possession, what would save his life quite a few times in the future. A full set of armor, entirely made and adjusted for him, was laid out on the table. He recognized the same distinctive elements he had already seen on the armors of the other soldiers: the large ornate pauldrons, the finely worked cuirass, the decorated bracers and greaves, the long straps of the armor skirt. This armor was the symbol of authority and unity of the Legion, the Empire as a whole even, a sign of force and an impenetrable shell against the enemy. As Lucius started to equip the various pieces of armor in a moment filled with pride, he considered himself finally ready to do his part, to fully join the Legion and officially become a legionnaire, though this was only the start of his own legend.
