Roman Empire Salad


1 Ambitious General (Julius Caesar) 1 scared population

100 Senators Thousands of trained soldiers

Barbarian enemies 1 Conspiracy

1 Large Mixing European Continent 29 Knives

1 Angry Nephew (Octavius) 1 Prideful Senator (Cassius)


1. In the Large Mixing European Continent add the Barbarian enemies to the scared population and the 100 Senators.

2. After letting them mix for about 10 years it will begin to boil - add the Ambitious General and the Thousands of trained soldiers. These will calm the mixture and stop the boiling.

3. After stewing for a few months you will have 1 Prideful Senator.

4. Take the Prideful Senator out and mix it with 1 Conspiracy and 29 knives.

5. After letting that new mixture sit for awhile mix it back in with the rest of the ingredients.

6. At this point the Ambitious General will be completely dissolved into the mixture, you are almost done!

7. Add the Angry Nephew to the dish.

8. The Angry Nephew will mix with the thousands of trained soldiers to dissolve the remaining ingredients. While all the flavors will mix together the Angry Nephew will be the strongest spice. Inside your Large Mixing European Continent you will be left with a Roman Empire Salad!
