In the past, I've done DoW's themed to movies, quips, monkeys, rodents with guns and lots of other goofy angles.

Although typically Paul711 is the history buff of OP, tonight I'll share a bit of an educational DoW.

So - everyone pour a cocktail and put on your best scholarly cap, as class is in session.

The Western Empire and the period of the Decline or Fall of the Roman Empire and the onset of the Dark Ages. During this period the city of Rome was sacked by the Visigoths in 410 and by the Vandals in 455 signalling the disintegration of Roman authority and the Fall of the Roman Empire

4 September 476 The Western Roman Empire ended officially with the abdication of Romulus Augustus on 4 September 476 - The Fall of the Roman Empire.

31 July 2009 - Cybernations TE launched by admin for alpha testing. Sometime shortly thereafter, someone had the bright idea to create Roman Empire as an alliance.

July 2011 - Roman Empire makes some comments on the TE-OWF challenging the matter in which OP has progressed through round 18. As it turns out, OP is a little bored and tired of building their nations and stockpiling nukes so....

Current top secret spy images show that things have changed quite a bit over in Rome.

Peep your timestamps, I showed up two hours after the conversation ended. When I got there I was talking about chickens. Not you guys, the other kind of chickens. :P

You could have asked me then. But I think my position is clear, now. :awesome:

Damned if we do, damned if we don't.

So many haters. :rolleyes:

As I see it, we are two of the top TE AA's.

So let's fight.

And yes, this was NOT our original plan. Events of the last couple of days caused the change.

Anyone need a mirror? :P

Its not constant, I said a few things about OP not fighting for 30 days, sorry if I hurt your feelings though.

Also at Stelios, your comment about seeing way worse is correct, it is mostly directed at RE though and mostly coming from AA's just like OP. I can't quite recall anytime that I or Stelios have ever warred over hurt feelings from a couple OWF posts though.
