Welcome to In Pursuit of Power, Cycle 2! Bonam Fortunam!

Deaths

Anti

It was a quite night. Anti was enjoying a libation of wine in his villa just outside Rome, content to be alone, enjoying the silence of the darkness, and the bucolic air that wafted in through the windows. Here, in the countryside, he felt closer to the people.

Suddenly, he heard voices and feet stomping. He lept up and ran to the door. He reached for the knife he always concealed beneath his robes...just in case. Maybe this was just a flock of people coming to air their grievances to him--the only Roman official who would listen to them. Before he got to the door, he heard it come crashing down. Men stormed into his house--he heard ceramics smashed and furniture upturned; his family was screaming. He ran forward, and found himself staring and a group of legionnaires. He drew his knife, but before he had a chance to move, there was a sharp pain in his back. Everything went dark before his eyes...just like the night outside.

Character: Lucius Fabricius Calvinus. You are a man of the people. You take pride in directing the mass's anger towards an establishment that doesn't care about their needs or desires. You were elected tribune to speak on the behalf of the aggrieved, even though most of your colleagues could care less about them.
Win Con: You win if none of the players remaining when the game ends are worth more than 4000 ses (including you) and if you are alive, or you win when you become emperor.
Ability: Veto

Bank Account: 3500 ses.
Income per Cycle: 1000 ses.
Life Score: 70/100
Luck Score: 50/100

Fire

He was walking through the forum in Rome. It was midday, so few people were out in this sunlight. But he had business with some wealthy aristocrats there, and business was how he gained power. So, he was willing to suffer the blistering Italian sun. Before he reached the meeting point, however, a figure jumped out from behind a building--it was too fast for him to see who it was. There was a flash of sun against metal, and suddenly, his toga was red...crimson red. He collapsed to the ground, and lay there in the sun, sweating, and bleeding...and, eventually, he died.

Character: Aulus Acilius Cornus. You are a Praetor in the Empire, and you hail from a wealthy and distinguished noble family. You have always been power hungry, and have fought hard to advance quickly through the Roman bureaucracy. You rely on your money and connections to succeed, and you are great at playing the political game.
Win Con: You win if you are the richest player at the end of the game, or when you become emperor.
Ability: Robber

Bank Account: 750 ses.
Income per Cycle: 3000 ses.
Life Score: 45/100
Luck Score: 75/100

Attention

1. Anti is replacing Voice.
2. Link to Cycle 1: http://www.debate.org...
3. Do not post here. You must initiate PMs with other players, but you must also include me in all PMs. Submit all actions in your individual PMs.

Severus's condition has taken a turn for the worse. His family are concerned that he may die at any moment, and the provincial armies are becoming restive as central authority weakens. Rome is in crisis. It needs a new leader, a new emperor, and it needs one soon.

Just to confirm, this means that anti originally died in cycle 1 and has been "resurrected" to take VOT's role and wincon or does that mean VOT/Anti was killed in cycle 1?

Please read point 3 of the post you just replied to. Do NOT post in this thread.

But, just to clarify, Anti, as his original character, died, and he has now taken over Voice's character and information.
