The user plays the role of an adolescent peasant who works as a messenger for the statesman, Mark Antony. In the year 46 B.C. you begin delivering messages directly to the slopes of Palatine Hill. Some are directed to Roman senators and others directly to the leader of the Roman Republic, Gaius Julius Caesar. At this point in time, Marc Antony and Caesar were close friends. They wrote to each other often with details involving war-plans, trade deals, and sometimes even wrote in epigrams. In 44 B.C., you are sent to deliver a letter to Caesar. Mark Antony rushes you to make sure the document gets to him as fast as possible and with the utmost amount of secrecy.
