These filler sentences/sub-sentences/details are pretty funny. Doubly so when you realize they were only written in to keep the dactylic hexameter consistent.

MFW I have a friend who always comes to the table with these net-built high AC characters, and then proceeds to get crit 2-3 times every single combat, even with dice visible.

MFW in 4e I had my rogue do a skill challenge that had the whole group sweating bullets and breathing a sigh of relief when he completed it successfully.

Best part was, it was optional, failure would only have affected the rogue, and unknown to him (and myself), he had built his rogue in such a way that he could only fail on a roll of 3 or less.

it was a device with 13 locks, fail too many and it nukes your ass and resets, all they knew was that it had a shitload of locks and curses written in abyssal all over it.

>Trying to do cheesy shit that is the result of dumb theorycrafting never plays out the way you hope it will as a player. Even if your DM isn't being adversarial.
MFW I have a friend who loves to use stupid high AC builds from the net, and then is constantly crit with on-the-table dice rolls.

Shit pisses him off so much.

So last night, we met a demon bound in a magic circle who offered to answer any question we had if we let her out first. MFW when we told her to fuck off, left, and bricked up the entrance.

Let's not forget that the Romans LOVED festivals, and being the Aedile who organized them was not only a great honor but also a way to kickstart a political career (I think Caesar nearly bankrupted himself during his time as Aedile). Cicero's festivals were described as being very modest and restrained, which was an insult. The Romans loved their celebrations lavish as fuck.

We should get rid of that whitewashed, austere image. Rome is pretty much modern Italy if modern Italy was the world's greatest superpower. They'd still siesta and fiesta between curbstomping barbarians.

>Risk meets Deadliest Warrior
I still remember that episode where they argued Washington was a better general than Napoleon.
Though there is some reasoning behind it that almost makes sense. In an earlier season they matched up US Marines against I think Spetznaz and the Muhreens lost. This led to such a massive viewer backlash that the productive team decided Americans were never again allowed to lose on the show, no matter how ridiculous. Turns out their new strategy worked.

>Keeps faffing about
He had no real means of taking Rome, buddy. He had a few good Carthaginian troops and other than that mostly second rate barbarian mercenaries. He was also isolated due to Carthaginian reinforcements not arriving (more on that later).

The biggest part of his "faffing about" was the fact that he had to return to Carthage, to defend it. Because Hannibal was doing fine and dandy, but the Carthaginians were losing on every single other front. They were losing in Spain (which Hannibal had more less built up as a power base for his family), they were losing in Sicily and they were losing at sea (hence why Hannibal's reinforcements never arrived).

The thing is that even Hannibal's genius could not save decadent Carthage from its own faults. He did what he did in spite of Carthage, while Rome won because it is Rome (not because of individual genius). Perhaps things would've been different had Hannibal been king.
