The Nightmare is at an End
Contributed by David Verne
There is a panic in Germania Superior, a Roman province on their side of the Rhine, when raiding bands of Chatti cross the river. The legate Publius Pomponius dispatched legionaries and allied cavalry to head off the raid. The Romans split into two columns and ambush the raiders while they sleep. The remaining Chatti found their retreat cut off by Pomponius. He was given Triumphal Decorations for his victory, but the legions were more excited about something else. They freed slaves from the Chatti, former Roman soldiers who had been captured 40 years before, during the Battle of the Teutoburg Forest. 
Almost a Jewish Revolt
This year a Roman slave is robbed while travelling in Judea. In response, soldiers are sent to arrest the leading men of the area the robbery occured. While there to arrest the man, the soldiers began to plunder the area. This quickly escalated when a Roman soldier found a Torah scroll, and burned it infront of the villagers while shouting blasphemies. As a result a large crowd of Jews confronted the govenor, Cumanus, who had sent the soldiers, demanding that the blasphemer be punished. To calm the crowd, Cumanus had the soldier beheaded before the crowd.
