Continuing the story of cute Roman architects doing cute things, NTR, and the Emperor that lusts after his sweet, sweet sculpted body.
It takes 20 hours to dump this entire thing. How long can I keep it going? Stay tuned.
The emperor has fallen ill. But first, an anecdote.
I might take a nap while I post this, so don't expect a reply.
If it suddenly stops posting, then something terribly wrong has happened and it's up to you believers to keep it afloat until I return.
My college degree tells me that this thread will take just over 4 hours, so I will nap for 3.5
This thread will continue right into the next volume.
All three are out, but bookstores might not carry them anymore unless you request them.
Get a degree, post storytime threads on /a/ for a year and work every now and then. Living the dream.
It wasn't the whole are more then it was probably that specific bath, and it was specifically sailors. They probably don't have any laws discriminating people from using/entering their services.
I say probably because it's big fuck all assumption especially since I've been in a hotel that prohibited japs from renting rooms. It even had a floor segregated that only women can rent.
I would also say to try giving Vita Arcana a shot, but I don't even know if that's still being published. I think it transferred magazines, but I don't know its publication schedule. Must be irregular, since a new tank still hasn't come out.
>anon in charge of not reading
>that anon is me
I'm gonna blame how late it is, my point is still partially true in that it probably wasn't that big of a deal, they just needed to go further to find a hot spring, which sucks.
but yeah I fucked up.
In other news, I would like to scan the deluxe versions of Ravages of Time, but YesAsia (the only place I can find that sells it reliably and overseas) charges $25 per volume.
Been about 2 years for me
Blog: don't know if you can call it a good soak though.
4 AM, decide to soak and stay up since no bath at home and often travel, bubbles, bubbles everywhere, to the ceiling, bubbles, have to evacuate bubbles to the shower to wash them away, for about 30minutes+, bubbles.
It popped the luxury bubble I was trying to live in.
Not even once.
I completely forgot about Shirokuma Cafe. No one's even touched that.
All right, for real this time, taking a brief nap. Enjoy. 219 images left for this dump, otherwise it would end in the middle of a chapter.
Going to have to go buy some caffeine gum or something.
The author took the saying; 'when in Rome, do as the Romans do', too literally.
Too much immersion.
You'll only attract the wrong crowds, even not saying it would've only led to 1-2 reactions at most.
Could just be that he's a foreigner and he's wearing clothing one could mistake for Egyptian clothes if you didn't know much of Egypt and since he's in an Egyptian crocodile den. Also Romans had olive skin, Egyptians can have light-ish skin. It's not that much of a stretch to assume he's one.
Stripped 20~ pages of anecdotes, so if you want those I can either dump them at the end, or you can download the volumes yourself.
>Even if that's true,
it's a p liberal interpretation
afak Egypt was ruled by remnants of Alexander the Greats empire (Ptolemaic Kingdom) then it was made a Roman Province by Octavian and entered the direct jurisdiction of the Emperor, so it was ruled by the Emperor directly and not by the senat
so you could argue it was ruled by 'Greeks' but Ptolemy the I was Macedonian and the kingdom was a Hellenistic kingdom, which means it builds on the tradition of Alexander to merge 'western' (greek/macedonian) and 'eastern(persian) traditions of military, philosophy and government together
Just ensuring the safety of this dump. Until the next thread.
addendum: and since during Hadrian's period it had been and imperial province for a good 100 years it was ruled by Romans if anything (then again that is a stretchy term too since it means people who had roman citizenship and is not an ethnic term)
because it's not
it may be from our modern perspective, but they were different at the time, Greece was basically a patchwork of city states with different forms of governance but a common cultural and religious ground while Macedonia was a kingdom at the peripherie of the classical greek world, only in the hellenistic period the two sort of merged, but it's not the same
sort of like you wouldn't say that Canada is US-american
A tropical river is still going to be much warmer than anything naturally found in a temperate climate. Besides, they get lethargic if they cool off too much, not the best state for trying to find prey.
Still don't think they like cold water.
Of course they would recreate their natural habitat when putting them in Zoos and the like.
No one said they were in the water all day either.
Roman slavery is different from most other types. From wikipedia:
Roman slaves could hold property which, despite the fact that it belonged to their masters, they were allowed to use as if it were their own. Skilled or educated slaves were allowed to earn their own money, and might hope to save enough to buy their freedom. Such slaves were often freed by the terms of their master's will, or for services rendered. A notable example of a high-status slave was Tiro, the secretary of Cicero. Tiro was freed before his master's death, and was successful enough to retire on his own country estate, where he died at the age of 99.
their property was not only their master's it was also his decision whether they were allowed to hold one
and slaves who were in charge of heating eater were most certainly not paid
what this article is talking about mostly pertains to slaves who were educated vernae who recieved a good education from their masters and would work skilled labour or finance and not be water heaters
but whatever, they probably meant paying for the slaves' living costs anyway
>and now I am well known as a Super Bath Engineer
>I think I've just desired to bathe from the beginning
>I've bathed with flat-faced, bald-headed, short barbarians, crocodiles from Egypt, and many others
Nine tenths of mangakas struggle with the problem of being forced to stop writing for a magazine because of low popularity and the remaining one tenth has to put up with being forced to write stuff even while dry on ideas.
Just watched the movie, it was shit. The dubbing was pretty funny with how bad it was. I like Abe Hiroshi, but it wasn't a great role.
It would have seriously benefited from being more like the series, or the first 2 volumes of the manga. Changing everything to fit in a love interest was shitty.
