    Anyone feel like an opportunity was missed?

    Yeah, I realize there was the sale on Roman gods for the Ides of March, but does anyone else feel like they could have done more with it, like an event akin to Rising Dawn?

    I get that the Romans stole a lot from the Greeks anyway in terms of gods/goddesses, but it still feels like they're one of the more underrepresented pantheons in the game.

    This is actually a cool point. Maybe Roman versions of gods from other pantheons than Greek? I mean, since Roman stolen those, why not try with others?

    I can see Primus Odin* - in lorica with a centurion helmet and the missing eye covered with a bandage.

    Legio Auxilia Xibalanque - in tunic, with wolf's fur instead of jaguar and using sling instead of bolas.

    Patrician Amaterasu - in a toga, with a straight sword instead of katana and mirror sporting the Roman eagle.




    * This is a terribly far reaching pun - names based on numeral were relatively common in Rome, one such surviving till now is Octavian for example. Odin is westernized transcription of Russian numeral for one.

    This guy gets it. Another idea I had was possibly Gladiator Kali.


    or hell, even Roman equivalent skins for existing greek gods, like Mars for Ares, since they're generally depicted as being VERY different.

    Magistrate Zhong Kui. In some kind of toga, with a stylus instead of brush, vellum scroll floating around and demons made to look like whatever Lemures were depicted as.

    Thought about it, but hammer is not really a Roman weapon. Which is why I went with Odin in the first reply.
