TSSOC Presents: Rome: 2045 - 3/17/12 - PocoLoco Paintball, PA

Spring, 30 B.C. - Julius Caesar, emperor over all Rome, dies in his sleep at his villa in Capri. His funeral becomes the most- attended single event in the history of the world, with more than three million mourners packing the streets of Rome. In honor of his long and glorious reign, Caesar's body is placed in a magnificent tomb in the very heart of the city, where it remains to this day.
For thousands of years after the natural death of Caesar, in the name of the Emperor, the Houses of Brutii and Julii wage perpetual wars of conquest across the globe which have made them all the more rich and popular. Then, the efforts were focused on the stars.
Spring, 2043 A.D. - Two Roman Astro-Legionaires, Quintus Servilius Celsus and Decimus Apollonius, embark on an 24-month mission to conquer the planet of Mars in the name of the Emperor. The mission is hailed as "The most glorious triumph of engineering and courage in the history of the world." After six months of working on the surface of Mars, the two pioneers begin their long trek home.
