Salva Veritate

Advantages: Clever and amusing with lovely art
Disadvantages: A rather random collection

The year is 50 B.C. and Gaul is now entirely occupied by the invincible and mighty Romans. Well, hold on a minute, not entirely. One small village of indomitable (and completely mad) Gauls still defiantly - even nonchalantly - holds out against the bemuse ...
