this is the second installment in the series. If anyone has not checked out the group gladius, please do so.
Maximus Gordio II, the general of the Roman Army, is leading an army to the Germanichead quarters. But the Germanics have already left and meet the Romans on a trail.
Maximus: well, Germanics. Germanics, i guess this is your 'grand army' then.
Germanic leader: Aye, the finest in Germania, better than any Roman army. I also see that my men far outnumber yours.
Maximus: (under his breath) thats what you think.
While the Germanics have more soldiers, the force of the romans before them are only a portion of the actual army under Maximus.
the negotiatoin continued as 500 of the roman soldiers prepared. A veteran lead the force.
When Maximus deemed it necessary, he gave the order. An archer fired a fire tipped arrow. While the Germanics were watching, the others attacked.
the armies clashed on either side fo the Germanics. Not even the savage and brutal Germanics can fend against 1000 highly trained romans.
the Germanics were defeated.
Maximus: Whew! time to go home boys, i've got a son who's probably dying to see me.
