Pompeii. A city conquered by Romans. In the roman time, it was do or die. Serve the emperor, or die in a number of different gruesome deaths. Maybe you would be kept prisoner and forced to fight to the death against other slaves, freedom dangled in front of your face as an incentive, like a horse running after that carrot on a stick. It was useless. Freedom would never be given to you, even if you won. They would keep using you over and over until you died, and another victor was appointed the title Gladiator, still a slave in every sense. Or maybe you're not a captive. Maybe you're someone of power. Maybe your family has, or had a chance to do something that might keep you alive for a little longer. Maybe you're allied with the Romans. Maybe you're a noble or a guest to the emperor's new villa in the cliffside Italian city. Whoever you are, wherever you came from, this is it. Your chance to be someone. Welcome to Pompeii.
