Welcome to Aeterna Roma!
Before you get started creating a character, let me give a little history behind the site: Aeterna Roma began in April of 2008, the idea of creators; Gothic and Kate (who has since left us) . Only a handful of members (only 3-4 that I can think of) have stuck with the site since its founding, but since the founding we have managed to continue attracting new writers to join in on the fun.
Along with realtime, AeRo has continued the same storyline, with in-game developments starting in 51 AD and continuing up until the present. Some characters have aged and gained themselves a place in the world of Roma, some have retired into history, and others have died the victims of war or political maneuvering. Within AeRo, there is a place for everyone.
Before we get much further, let me introduce the Staff:
: Remaining founder, Owner, & Head Admin.
: Member of AeRo v1, General Site Admin
: Admin, jcink and graphics guru
: Mod, Updating queen
